The rapper has emerged as a powerful entity since her Grammy win with Beyoncé. Stallion does not just want to stop at music, but she wants to try every avenue available. Recently, she appeared in an episode of ‘She-Hulk’ and she will also make her feature debut with ‘F***ing Identical Twins.’
In an interview with New York Magazine, Megan expressed her wish to be on the other side of the camera. She said, “When I look at them [Ice Cube & Queen Latifah], it inspires me to take it further than just music,” she said. “I don’t feel like I’m only going to be an actress — I feel like I’m also going to be a director, and I’m also going to be a producer.”
