It's happened again! A celebrated pop-culture figure from Houston has landed on the cover of a national magazine. Megan Thee Stallion, the “Hot Girl Summer" musician who partnered with Cardi B on the risqué hit song “WAP," is the covergirl for Time's “100 Most Influential People of 2020" issue this week.


Megan joins Olympian Simon Biles and fellow music star Travis Scott as cover celebs. Biles appeared on the cover of Vogue in August, the image having been shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz in the Houston suburb of Spring. Scott fronted the September issue of GQ.

Named to the annual list of influencers, Megan was honored in an essay by Oscar-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson. “She's the epitome of tenacity," she wrote, “of pulling herself up by her bootstraps." Megan was photographed for the magazine cover at the Red Rocks outdoors theater in Colorado.

“Still I rise," she posted on Instagram, touting the accomplishment. “Young black woman from Houston Texas on the cover of Time magazine as one of the most influential people in the world."

THERE ARE FEW places in Houston as hallowed as Montrose's Numbers Nightclub. For nearly 50 years now, the nightclub, which started out as a risqué dinner theater in the late '70s before turning into a gay disco in the '80s and then into the dance club and live music venue it is today, has served as a safe haven for generations for Houstonian outliers and mainstreamers alike. And now, thanks to Houston-reared producer, director and fashion designer Marcus Pontello, 33, the venerated Houston nightlife staple is getting the silver screen treatment.
