2020 has brought us a lot of pop culture wild cards but we truly didn’t expect Megan Thee Stallion to be an X-Men fan, but is she actually?
Fans of both X-Men and Megan went wild on Twitter over her apparent love for the film series. The information stems from a tweet by @Andybeckerman claiming it.
The tweet, which has almost 3k retweets, says: “I *like* Megan Thee Stallion’s music, but I *love* her hot takes on early 2000s X-Men,” alongside a screenshot of what they allege to be her GQ interview.
The screenshot seems to be of an alleged tweet from the official GQ account, saying: “@theestallion on where the X-Men took a wrong turn after Grant Morrison’s run,” alongside a preview of the article with a pull-quote reading:
“I think it was a huge mistake to let Chuck Austin write the X-Men. He ruined Nightcrawler by making his father literally the devil. I mean, what?”
Is the tweet real?
We hate to rain on you parade, but this screenshot of Megan Thee Stallion talking about X-Men is not real.
Megan did give an interview with GQ, where she covered allegedly being shot, sexual liberation and hot girl summers. Seemingly everything but X-Men.
Instead, the tweet is edited as a joke, finding humour in the idea of such a specific and random analysis of X-Men coming from Megan Thee Stallion.
Is Megan Thee Stallion an X-Men fan?
Although many wish the tweet was real, the rapper has never actually commented on whether she’s into the film series.
However, it wouldn’t come as a surprise if she does as she’s never been afraid to show her geekier side.
Megan Thee Stallion has always been vocal about her love for anime and even cosplayed as My Hero Academia’s Shoto Todoroki on the cover of Paper Magazine.
In an Instagram live with Crunchyroll, who she has an anime merch collection with, she reportedly said: “I’m half anime character, half rapper.”
Plus, she’s into video games too. Just recently Megan dressed as Milena from Mortal Kombat to promote the game’s new extension packs.
She’s even been dubbed the “queen of protecting nerds” after a leaked video of her high school days showed her telling the camera: “It’s a discrimination against nerds everywhere.”
