The war of words between Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez has been taking place for nearly two years now, but the Houston rapper is very clear on her stance about how she hopes it all ends. She wants Lanez to be in prison, if not underneath it.

In Megan’s latest Rolling Stone cover story, the artist told writer Mankaprr Conteh she believes she’s been portrayed as the villain in the case, where Lanez is alleged to have shot her in the foot in a July 2020 altercation.

“I want him to go to jail,” Megan says. “I want him to go under the jail.”

Megan added that she feels people aren’t taking her experience seriously and doesn’t understand why, citing the endless waves of memes and ridicule that come at her expense.

“In some kind of way I became the villain,” she said. “And I don’t know if people don’t take it seriously because I seem strong. I wonder if it’s because of the way I look. Is it because I’m not light enough? Is it that I’m not white enough? Am I not the shape? The height? Because I’m not petite? Do I not seem like I’m worth being treated like a woman?”

As for Lanez continuing to refute Meg’s claims, she said, “I feel like you’ve already tried to break me enough. You’ve already shot me. So, why are you dragging it out like this? Like, what else? Have you hated me this much the whole time and I didn’t see it?”

Megan also said some of the raw emotions she has been feeling over these last few years will be reflected in her upcoming sophomore album, which she hopes to drop this summer. 

“I want to take you through so many different emotions,” she explains. “At first you was twerking, now you might be crying.”
