Megan Thee Stallion Making History
You can literally say that Megan Thee Stallion rapped her way into Oscar history with a “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” verse, and you’d be right. While a live performance of the hit Disney song was indeed planned and previously announced, it would seem no one really expected the “Hot Girl Summer” star to show up in the middle of it and steal the spotlight with a special verse.
Sporting a dazzling gold dress, Stallion made history and gave everyone a piece of her mind. She also used the verse to give a shout-out to the three female hosts, including a special shout-out to Zendaya in the audience. Whether you loved or disliked the first live performance of the song, you can’t deny Stallion’s brilliance.
No One Saw It Coming
The audience was both shocked and thrilled to see Stallion join the original cast for the performance. When asked if he was aware of Megan’s participation in the song, Encanto’s director Jared Bush said that he knew “there was going to be something unexpected” in the show, but he had no idea it would be that. So, did he like it? He “absolutely loved it!”
“We Don’t Talk About Bruno” stayed on the Billboard’s Hot 100 chart at Number One for weeks in January, and it seems like everyone finds a way to relate to the song. Seeing Megan Thee Stallion do it too “was mind-blowing,” said Bush. The audience went wild with Megan’s performance, and it will surely stay in Oscar history.
