Hot Girl Summer is a State of Mind

Seasons change, but your confidence levels don't have to.

Seasons may change, but your confidence levels don’t have to

Rapper Megan Thee Stallion dropped her album “Fever” back in May and it instantly went viral, marking 2019 as the year of the ‘Hot Girl Summer’.

One of her songs, “Cash Shit,” begins with the opening lyrics, “Real hot girl shit.” This along with the album cover, which reads “She’s Thee Hot Girl and She’s Bringing Thee Heat,” sparked the catchy phrase “Hot Girl Summer” among her fans. The phrase soon went viral, trending on social media sites like Twitter and Instagram.

What is Hot Girl Summer? Well, according to Megan Thee Stallion in an interview with The Root, “It’s just basically about women — and men — just being unapologetically them, just having a good-ass time, hyping up your friends, doing you, not giving a damn about what nobody got to say about it. You definitely have to be a person that can be the life of the party, and, y’know, just a bad bitch.”

#HotGirlSummer started as attractive women posting photos on Instagram, but became a mental state of being or feeling to share online. Women, men and non-binary folks started using the hashtag to describe their fun summer moments with family, friends or by themselves.

The internet took the phrase and turned it into a meme. Ironically people would use the hashtag to share not-so-great moments of summer, like staying indoors for days without seeing another living soul.

Ultimately, the 2019 summer phrase is sage advice that should be lived by. Megan Thee Stallion, the OG hot girl, is someone to aspire to be.

The hot girl knows she’s hot because she’s confident in who she is and knows how to enjoy herself without worrying about what others around her think. Anyone, be it man, woman or non-binary folks should embody the tenets of a hot girl.

Whether it’s bravery, confidence, fun or just living in the moment, the phrase encourages us to enjoy times like taking naps, planning protests, laying by the beach, cuddling with your significant other or even hooking up with that one cutie from the bar last night.

Any moment, any outfit, any body can be a part of a hot girl summer, as long as you have the mindset to go along with it.

So be the hottie that Megan Thee Stallion knows you are and don’t forget to share the attitude, because it’s meant for everybody.
