Meghan Thee Stallion Lives by Her Mother’s Advice
Meanwhile, despite the untimely demise of her mother, Holly Thomas, in 2019, Megan Thee Stallion revealed on Apple Music 1’s The Ebro Show with Ebro and Nadeska that she’s still living by her mom’s advice.
“She was like, 'Just because I'm sick that don't mean yous not supposed to be going to do your work. You got to a show tomorrow,’” she recalled before Thomas died of brain cancer, per BET. “I had a show in California for the first time ... it was at Diesel. It was something big. This was going to be one of the first biggest performances that I ever had.”
Despite their situation at the time, Thomas told them to continue doing their thing.
“And she was just like, 'Just because I'm sick, you and T Farris, y'all don't stop. Y'all need to go to LA and still do your show,” she added. “And I was like, 'Yeah, yeah, yeah. All right. I'm going to be back up here in a little bit.' And then it was just over so quick and I was just like, 'Oh my God, what do I do?' She said, 'Don't stop,' so then I just took that literally. And we're here today.”
