Megan Thee Stallion Delivers Powerful ‘Protect Black Women’ Statement on ‘Saturday Night Live’

Megan Thee Stallion did not squander her opportunities as the musical guest on “Saturday Night Live,” using the spot to make a direct statement about violence toward Black women.

During her performance of “Savage,” her hit single of last spring, the words “Protect Black Women” appeared on the screen behind her, along with quotes from Malcom X and activist Tamika Mallory calling out Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron over his handling of Breonna Taylor’s death at the hands of Louisville police.

As Megan and her dancers stood at attention in the middle of the song, Mallory’s voice rang out, with the quote “Daniel Cameron is no different than the sell-out negroes who sold our people into slavery” projected behind them.

It’s About Celebrating Collaboration

“It has been possibly one of the biggest undertakings I’ve ever done. Just the people involved and then tomorrow for every component there is like a whole category of content with it,” Anderson says. “The entire collection was designed in lockdown. I really wanted to kind of focus on this idea that we would use what we had, so use the leathers we had, use fabrics we had. When we did craft pieces, we just went to local people who were working from home, so it could be the whole basket look or the hand embroidery. The whole thing is really about obsessions, kind of like curiosity and obsession. I think it’s just an important moment, and I think it’s such an exciting moment to be able to try new things out.

I thought a spaceship landed in my driveway last week, but it was a 2020 McLaren GT. That’s better. I have a license to operate one of those.

Low, wide and ridiculously graceful, the GT is McLaren’s “practical” car, a European-style GT in the sense that it can carry a couple off to a weekend getaway at speed, but also in comfort and style. It’s longer than McLaren’s other street cars, designed to be a daily driver — if your daily drive is from your Swiss chalet to a bank in Zurich where they know your number, not your name. GTs traditionally seat four, but there’s no rule that says they must.

McLaren’s other cars are likely to spend at least some time on the track, according to company data. The GT is for more relaxed pursuits.
