Megan Thee Stallion gave her first-ever performance of “Body” at the AMAs 2020, and she slayed it, of course. Before she took the stage, a pre-recorded speech the rapper had made about body positivity played, and it was powerful. 

“I love my body,” Megan said. “Every curve. Every inch. Every mark. Every dimple. It’s decoration on my temple. My body is mine, and nobody owns it but me. And who I choose to let in is so lucky. You may not think my body is perfect, and it probably never will be. But when I look in the mirror, I love what I see. So are you ready?” 

Say it louder for the people in the back! Check out a GIF from the performance, below: 

Naturally, fans were living for her performance. “The way she ate and left no crumbs,” one person tweeted. Another added, “Wow I cannot believe I got to slay Megan the stallion and slayed tffff out of her. I’m about to cry.”
