The internet has no chill and apprently not even the girls grades are exempt.
She may be known for twerking, turning up, and “driving the boat,” but outside of her music career, rapper Megan Thee Stallion has always mentioned one of her main priorities is finishing her college education, attending Texas Southern University College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences.
Of course, as she persues a career in rap Megan’s schedule doesn’t exactly allow her to go to school everyday, so she rarely attends class in person, telling fans that she does all of her homework assignments and exams via the magic of online schooling.
In a recent interview with The Breakfast Club, Stallion talked about balancing her career and education with the hosts of the popular morning show. “I’m taking quizzes every other day, doing homework, like, I try to get it in when I can.” When DJ Envy responded with “What’s your GPA?” The ‘Hot Girl Summer’ MC replied “ooooh, I got maybe like a 2.7 or 2.8 right now, it could be better.”
For those unfamiliar, a 2.7 wouldn’t exactly be considered an honor roll student, it would translate to a low B-, possibly a C (I’m a little rusty), but certainly an average which can probably be expected from someone such as Megan who probably barely has time to finish her schooling. However, since Megan’s extremely open disclosure with Envy, this has since sparked a debate online with many dragging the rapper even going as far as calling her dumb while citing her not reading her contract, referencing to her infamous debate with her label 1501, where she stated that she didn’t understand her contract at the time of signing.
Some have also come to the self-proclaimed Hot Girl Captain’s defense, with one Twitter user writing: “Everybody is talking about how Megan said her gpa is a 2.7. Ppl who went to 4 year universities understand that a 2.7 ain’t even all that bad. It’s gon secure the degree & that’s all that matters!”
What do you guys think? Peep the receipts below along with some of the reactions and let us know what you think. Is the internet doing too much here or does Megan need to focus on her books? Listen, I was just happy to get out of school successfully so I’m not judging anyone’s grades.

I know people aren’t talking about Megan’s GPA. Especially those who have never attended a university 🥴

In school, my GPA was around 2.7 . I graduated two years early. It's nothing to boost your GPA up. I'm not explaining nothing else. Only small minded people dragged her. Sheesh .

@theestallion I love you sis but your GPA shouldn’t be a 2.7. I’m sure it’s due to your busy schedule but we need to get you an on the road tutor! You work too hard! You don’t have to do it by yourself sis!
