Megan Thee Stallion had to pull the plug on her first Hot Girl Summer tour show in Atlanta just hours before she was supposed to perform.

Right before the doors were set to open at State Farm Arena on May 31, the 29-year-old rapper took to X (formerly Twitter) to break the news to her fans. A massive water main break across the city forced the cancellation. “Unfortunately, we will need to reschedule tonight’s show at State Farm Arena due to the massive water main break that The City of Atlanta is experiencing,” she shared. “I’m extremely disappointed because I had a huge surprise for the Hotties tonight, but we will follow the Mayor’s protocol. Tonight’s show is rescheduled for THIS SUNDAY June 2nd, 2024.”

The venue also announced that tickets purchased for the original Friday date would be honored on the rescheduled date. The show planned for Saturday, June 1, would go on as scheduled. State Farm Arena and Live Nation are keeping fans updated through social media.

In other news, the Texas native opened up about her hit song “Hiss” in a late May interview with L’Officiel. Reflecting on the song’s success, she said, “I absolutely did not know it was going to do all of that! I had no clue that was going to happen. I had been holding in feelings for a while. I felt like everybody was kicking me when I was down.”

Megan elaborated on how the song allowed her to express her emotions during a tough time, adding, “It felt good to finally be able to just talk my talk because I was in a place where I was so down, and I didn’t want to do anything to disrupt any kind of peace. I felt like, Oh, Megan Thee Stallion, everybody hates you right now. Don’t you say a word. Just be quiet.” She continued, “I felt so awful every day. It was such a hard place to get out of. I don’t even want to care who hates me, really. What I should be focusing on is the love that I do receive. That’s what I’m trying to get better about now. Everything is not going to be great all the time. If I’m going to be here for the cheers, I got to be here for the boos.”

She also discussed the challenging expectations placed on female rappers. “For female rappers, there’s a line that you don’t want to cross,” she noted. “You want to be Miss Congeniality. You want to be well liked by everyone. You want to be the baddest, you want to be the best, but you want to do it the right way.” Megan concluded by emphasizing authenticity: “I did have to learn that there is no right way. Whoever you are, be that. If you crazy, be crazy. If you nice, be nice. If you mean, be mean. If you sad, be sad. Whatever your lane is, just be that. Be your real true self.”
