Megan Thee Stallion Wins Best New Artist At Grammys 2021; Dedicates It To Her Late Mom

Megan Thee Stallion just picked up her second Grammy of the night for Best New Artist!

The 26-year-old rapper won the coveted honor at the 2021 Grammys, which were held on Sunday (March 14) from the Los Angeles Convention Center, and dedicated the win to her late mother who passed away in 2019.

“I always had two plan As. Like, I wasn’t a person who liked to have a plan B. So I was like, ‘I’m going to be a rapper and I’m going to go to school.’ I graduated in the fall, woop, woop. But I just feel like my mom would always say we’re going to be at the GRAMMYs and blah blah blah. Like I would perform at clubs, bars, anywhere I could perform I was there and she would be like, ‘One day we’re gonna be front row…,’ and I would be like, ‘That’s so far away.’ But it came so quickly and I’m just so happy,” she shared in her acceptance speech.

Megan went on, “I know she’s watching down over me. She definitely would be in here crying. We would be crying together, my makeup would be terrible, but I know she’s proud. Her and my dad, so just shout-out to my parents for making me. She really guided me here. This is all dedicated to my mom tonight.”

“I feel like 2020 was crazy for everybody. I know I had a lot going on in 2020 and I just feel like this is a moment where I’m like you know what, you’ve been through it, you went through it, but you made it. I made it through it, now I’m here,” she added. “I’ve already won one GRAMMY. And I’m just so appreciative, like I’m so humbled. I don’t even know what to say, I’m just excited to be here.”

Earlier in the night, Megan won the Grammy for Best Rap Performance for “Savage”. Check out her reaction to that here!
