A ceremony was held in honor of Megan, where Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner declared it Megan Thee Stallion Day. The date is important to the rapper as it is Pete’s late mother and grandmother’s birthday.

“Both of these women helped me grow into the woman that I am today…” Pete said at the ceremony. “I wanted to be nice like them. They made me feel so beautiful and so loved, and they made everybody they met feel just like that.”

Mayor Turner applauded Pete’s service to her city: “She assisted people after the 2021 winter storm, during the pandemic, and helped those struggling with homelessness. I look forward to watching her grow as an artist and humanitarian.” Alongside her key, Pete was honored in full Texas fashion as Mayor Turner also gave her a cowboy hat, rodeo belt buckle, and a Texas flag.

Pete most recently performed at the Coachella and Beale Street music festivals and released her latest single “Plan B.”
