The Hot Girl took home multiple awards including Best New Artist at the 63rd annual Grammy Awards on Sunday (March 14), becoming the first female rapper to win the award since Lauryn Hill in 1998. Lizzo, who won Best New Artist last year, presented her with the trophy at Sunday’s show in Los Angeles.
Megan, who stunned in an orange Dolce & Gabbana gown, looked shocked as Lizzo read her name aloud. “It’s been a hell of a year but we made it,” said an emotional Megan while accepting the award.
She also paid tribute to her late mother Holly Thomas, who passed away in March 2019. “She’s not here with me today but I know she’s here with me in spirit, and she always believed I could do it,” said Meg.
Megan, who was nominated for four awards, also took home her first Grammy for Best Rap Performance for her “Savage” collaboration with Beyoncé during the pre-ceremony.
