Megan thee stallion’s army fatigues demanded attention at the vma pre-show

Megan Thee Stallion’s impervious knees were the star of the 2019 VMA Pre Show. Twisting and dropping, slipping and sliding, without so much as a wince from the performer, her popping patellas carried her performance of ‘Big Ole Freak’ to absurd new heights that most can only dream of.

She wore a unique riff on an Army sergeant’s uniform, except instead of slacks, her legs cut through her fishnets. Her backup dancers behind her adorned camouflaged fatigues as they bounced around to the tune’s steamy energy. If you’ve ever watched a video of extreme parkour on YouTube, you know how it feels to gasp in horror at each carefree jump from building to building, knowing that the slightest misstep can spell doom for the excited athletes eager to test the limits of their bodies. That same feeling arises from watching Megan bounce up and down, propelled by her knees and their caps as with each full rotation, the hype raised one full level. Afterwards, Megan gave a brief shout-out to her home city of Houston, TX.
