Megan Thee Stallion has some words for a crusty old politician in the short film that leads up to her tribute to the ladies who make the world go round in “Thot Sh•t.” Watch her take out the trash in NSFW style.
Pitchfork asked director Aube Perrie how the video came about:
I knew this was about what Megan stands for. We saw this backlash especially after “WAP” came out. When we heard “Thot Shit,” it was pretty obvious to me and imperative that we needed to do something extremely strong that will go for what she stands for. The idea came very quick to do this as an answer to those guys that are afraid of women’s bodies, and that’s why they are afraid of Megan. They’re afraid of the idea that a hottie might exist in every girl. They’re afraid of women’s power and freedom. The quote at the beginning, it’s actually rewritten from Fight Club. I love this quote because it allows Megan and others to say to those guys that people’s bodies matter. This quote was really convenient to say like, “Hey man, the women you’re talking about, they’re everywhere.”
The video got a little extra juice this week after behind-the-scenes footage of a camera operator trying to keep up with the twerking went viral:
