Megan Thee Stallion recalled the very first time she was ever called a “stallion,” telling a creepy story about an older man calling her the slang term when she was a teenager. Megan is known by many names—Thee Hot Girl, Houston Hottie, Hot Girl Meg, Tina Snow, and soon-to-be Suga—but there’s a well-known reason she chose to make her ficial stage name “Megan Thee Stallion.” While most know the word “stallion” to mean a type horse, it actually has a very different alternate meaning in Houston. When asked about the first time she was ever called a “stallion” during her “The First Time” segment for the “Women Shaping The Future” issue Rolling Stone, Megan recounted an instance in which a much older man catcalled her while she was leaving a football game at 15 years old.
“The first time I was ever called a stallion I was 15 and I was leaving a football game, and this dude was way older. He was like, ‘Dang, lil mama, you a stallion!’ I was like, ‘Uh, uh, go to jail! I’m 15!’ I really started going out, cause he scared me! I had to go home and ask my uncle, ‘What is a stallion and why did that man call me that?’ He was like, ‘Oh Megan, that means that you tall and fine.’ I was like, ‘Oh yeah, I am that.'”

While the interaction is disturbing, it did lead to Megan learning about perfect term to describe herself. In the same segment, Megan also reveals the first time she won a rap battle, listened to UGK, watched anime, and more. Watch the full video below:
