Megan Thee Stallion is more than happy to fly the flag for sexual confidence as she believes men have ‘owned sex’ for far too long.
The Savage hitmaker caused a stir this summer after collaborating with Cardi B on the racy track WAP, which stands for Wet A*s P***y and sees the pair being upfront about their bedroom antics and twerking up a storm in the music video.
Fans loved the gutsy approach of WAP but many others were shocked by the explicit content, with Snoop Dogg most recently criticising the rappers for leaving little to the imagination.
However, Megan, 25, is frankly tired of listening to men’s opinions on what women do with their bodies and is claiming the power back.
Speaking to GQ, the Body rapper said: ‘Some people just don’t know what to do when a woman is in control and taking ownership of her own body.
‘I feel like for a long time men felt like they owned sex and now women are saying, “Hey, this is for me. I want pleasure. This is how I want it or don’t want it”, it freaks men the hell out. It just comes from a place of fear and insecurity, like why would anyone be mad about my WAP? It belongs to me.’
Snoop Dogg received backlash for his comments on WAP when he questioned whether it was appropriate.

Speaking on the Central Ave podcast, the Sexual Seduction rapper controversially said: ‘Oh my God. Slow down. Like, slow down and let’s have some imagination. Let’s have some privacy, some intimacy where he wants to find out as opposed to you telling him.
‘That should be a woman’s prized possession. That’s your jewel of the Nile.’
The 49-year-old continued: ‘That’s what you should hold on to. That should be a possession that no one gets to know about until they know about it.
‘She may be doing the WAP or, you know what I’m saying, a part of the ‘WAP,’ but I can’t be mad at her cause it’s her generation, you know what I’m saying?’
He then acknowledged his hypocrisy given some of his eyebrow-raising lyrics in the past and admitted a young Snoop would have jumped on a remix of WAP.
Cardi’s husband Offset then spoke out in defence of the Bodak Yellow rapper and told TMZ: ‘I don’t get in a female’s business, so I’m just gonna say I hate when men do that. As rappers we talk about the same sh*t. Men can’t speak on women, they’re too powerful first off.
‘It’s a lot of women empowerment, like don’t shoot it down. We never had this many female artists running this s**t, they catching up to like, like passing us and setting records.
‘That’s two women on one record, that’s a very successful record. We should uplift our women, and don’t say what they can or can’t do. You know how long women have been told they can’t do something or they shouldn’t do this or they been blackballed out of entertainment?’
