Megan Thee Stallion is giving us more “hot girl sh*t” in her first-ever Frito-Lay Super Bowl commercial. The self-proclaimed “hot girl coach” is teaming up with Frito-Lay for its game-day campaign, and according to her, the partnership was always meant to be.
“I like to say that I manifested this opportunity because I eat Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and Doritos all the time,” she tells POPSUGAR. “I love hot chips, so it was an organic collaboration, and I loved the creative concept behind the commercial. At the end of the day, I only work with brands and organizations that genuinely connect with my interests and values.”
“To be part of a Super Bowl commercial, where millions are watching, I truly feel like I’ve made it.”
This sentiment is proven by Megan’s past brand collaborations — which include Cash App, Popeyes, Revlon, and Nike, to name a few. Now with Frito-Lay under her belt, the hot girl turned “Flamin’ Hottie” (per her newly released song of the same name) is staying true to her personal brand, and she’s beyond excited to be featured on a platform as big as the Super Bowl. “To be part of a Super Bowl commercial, where millions are watching, I truly feel like I’ve made it,” she says. “I grew up watching all the iconic Super Bowl commercials, so I still can’t believe that I’m starring in one. I’m humbled that Flamin’ Hot gave me the opportunity.”
Megan has been on her own hot streak lately, focusing on her music and obtaining her bachelor’s degree from Texas Southern University — her most noble accomplishment to date. Most people in Megan’s position would’ve easily chosen stardom over college in a heartbeat, but the Houston artist was determined to create a future for herself that didn’t necessarily revolve around her music career.
“It feels great to set a goal for yourself, stay committed, and to see it through until the very end.”
“I wanted to make myself and my family proud, but I also have goals in this world outside of music and entertainment,” she tells us. “I’ve always had an interest in the healthcare space and have a lot of respect for the craft. I’m still committed to opening assisted living facilities in my hometown, and it was important to have the right education and foundational resources to pursue that goal.” For Megan, her end goal wasn’t just about having a degree to show off. She wanted to prove to herself, and others who look up to her, that anything is possible with enough hard work. “[Graduating] just reinforced that I can do anything I want if I put my mind to it,” she declares. “It wasn’t an easy process and it took making sacrifices to get to this point, but I’m extremely proud of myself and my time-management skills. It feels great to set a goal for yourself, stay committed, and to see it through until the very end.”
When it comes to Megan, fans are always curious to know what new music she’s working on. Although the rapper remains tight-lipped about details, Megan assures us she’s been “working hard in the studio and taking my time with the creative process.” She even teases that she has new songs she’s ready to perform at her upcoming festival appearances — which include Lollapalooza and Coachella. So Hotties, expect some “exciting announcements” from Megan in the near future.
