The streets are about to be as flamin’ as our undisputed hottie, Megan Thee Stallion, has secured yet another bag — this time teaming up with Frito-Lay. The partnership consists of a new track called “Flamin’ Hottie,” produced by OG Parker, and gives a modern twist on the classic record “Push It” by Grammy Award-winning femcees, Salt-N-Pepa. The in-game spot will run during this Sunday's Super Bowl LVI and promote both Doritos and Cheetos brands and their respective Flamin’ Hot chip flavors.
When asked about paying homage to the rap duo, Megan expressed you can’t bring up women in hip hop without giving props to the rap icons..
“When you bring up female rap, you can’t bring it up without mentioning Salt-N-Pepa,” she shared with BET.com. “Doritos shared the beat with me and told me I had two minutes, go off.”
And in true Hot Girl fashion, she came and delivered.
As we gear up for the Super Bowl which will see the Los Angeles Rams face off against the Cincinnati Bengals for the coveted Vince Lombardi trophy, Megan is just as excited to attend the game itself.
“I’m excited to go to the Super Bowl because this is my first time actually attending the event,” she shared. “I’m ready for the whole experience. This halftime show is going to be so crazy as this is a big moment for hip hop. I’m ready to see what the Super Bowl is going to give.”
For those who don’t know (but at this point, you should), the halftime show has a star-studded lineup featuring Kendrick Lamar, Dr. Dre, Mary J. Blige, Eminem, and Snoop Dogg all set to perform and show out.
Now, little did we know the recent college graduate actually manifested this campaign to come into fruition. While she didn’t reveal any other big plans and surprises for the year, the rapper tells BET.com exclusively that she’s currently expressing her intentions to increase all things positive in her life.

The 26-year-old also made news after sharing how badly she'd love to do a collaborative EP with Jazmine Sullivan. And, of course, we wanted to know how fans and listeners can help her to make this wish come true.
”If we keep tagging Jazmine and we say it enough, we’ll speak it into existence,” the BET Award recipient said while signaling for Sullivan to give her a call to make this must-see collaboration happen.
In the hilarious Doritos trailer, the “Hot Girl Summer” rapper has her dressing room taken from her by a sloth. Without spoiling the rest of the comedic skit, we inquired with the “Savage” MC if there was anyone else who could take over her dressing room.
“My girl Beyoncé can do whatever she wants to do in any of my spaces,” she said. She then delves into what you would find in her dressing room if allowed access, which would be a few bags of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, gallons of water for hydration, her glam team, and her adorable pups 4oe and ONEITA.
With our “Hot Girl Coach” turning 27 on February 15, she also shares what she expects on what she calls one of her “two important holidays.”
“I need double gifts as they are both holidays and need to be celebrated,” she said. After the Super Bowl ends, Megan plans on heading straight to New York City for Fashion Week to attend the Coach fashion show, which is scheduled on Valentine’s Day.
Clearly, Megan is living her best life as a true Hot Girl should.
If we all try to be the best version of our Hot Girl/Hot Boy selves, the Grammy Award-winner shares how others can upgrade to the “Flamin’ Hottie” status that Meg has so expertly achieved.
“To be a flamin’ hottie, you have to be confident, the life of the party, you can’t be a hater, and you have to be someone who uplifts everyone as being a Hottie is about being positive,” she shares.
The “Good News” artist also revealed to BET.com her plans for the spring which consists of touring the country and doing what we all enjoy from her — performing.
“In the spring, you can see Thee Stallion in her natural habitat — in everyone’s face and on every stage,” she says. “It’s about to be lit and spring is the pre-warm-up to the summer, so you know it’s about to be lit.”
For Fashion Nova fans, you just might be in luck. The Texas Southern University alum didn’t share specifics, but she did say that she’s “working on some things” and she’s going to give us “something to rock” for the summertime.
She also gave us an update on the assisted living facility she plans to open Houston, her hometown.
“This is a real task and a really big business to open as you are taking care of literal people,” she explained. “It’s not going to happen overnight but I'm definitely working on it and it’s happening. This is my baby and I’m putting my heart into it. It’s gonna hit like everything else I do.”
She also encourages the hotties to go to school as it’s “never too late” to learn and tells them to “keep an open mind.”
“Go to school definitely as it’s nothing wrong with getting an education. You’re never too old to learn more or anything,” she says. “Take yourself to school. If you’re embarking on a new journey, keep an open mind and don’t let anything deter you or scare you. When you take that little second guess, that’s when you start doubting yourself so go full throttle on everything.”
