On April 18, 2023, Megan Thee Stallion spoke with ELLE magazine about the guilty verdict in the Tory Lanez trial. She shared her thoughts about being a survivor, the trauma she endured, and what she’s looking forward to in the future.

The rapper opened up about her thought process during the trial.

“I don’t want to call myself a victim. As I reflect on the past three years, I view myself as a survivor, because I have truly survived the unimaginable. Not only did I service being shot by someone I trusted and considered a close friend, but I overcame the public humiliation of having my name and reputation dragged through the mud by that individual for the entire world to see,” Megan shared.

The article was written by Evette Dionne, an award-winning journalist, pop culture critic, and editor of YES! Magazine.

Dionne shared the experience interviewing Megan on Twitter.

Megan shared a personal message with anyone who has dealt with violence in any form.

“For anyone who has survived violence, please know your feelings are valid. You matter. You are not at fault. You are important. You are loved. You are not defined by your trauma. You can continue to write beautiful, new chapters to your life story. Just because you are in a bad situation doesn’t mean you are a bad person. Our value doesn’t come from the opinions of other people. As long as you stand your ground and live in your truth, nobody can take your power,” Megan shared.
