No, You’re Not In Upside Down: Megan Thee Stallion Really Has Beef With Nancy Wheeler From stranger things. While co-hosting NBC The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Aug. 11, the “Savage” rapper finally got the chance to call out actor Natalia Dyer, who plays Nancy on the Netflix series, about her character’s longstanding love triangle with Steve Harrington (Joe Keery) and Jonathan Byers (Charlie Heaton) .
Meg certainly made it clear where she stands in the “Team Jancy” vs. “Team Stancy” debate. “I want Steve,” she said before beginning her light-hearted questioning. “Let’s talk about it anyway. OK, so boom. At first, you liked Steve. You were into Steve, and then you kind of dumped him. No caution, he didn’t know what was going on. Poor Steve,” the three-time Grammy winner recapped.
“You keep throwing the kids at him to babysit,” Meg continued. “He keeps saving your life. All it does is save your life. He was beating everyone, and you’re like, ‘Oh man, I’m going to see Jonathan. Sorry.'”
Dyer, for his part, didn’t necessarily disagree, replying with a laugh, “I feel terrible. Honestly, I just think the way Jonathan and Nancy happened, I was like, she doesn’t always make the most morally right decisions all the time. But it’s human. »
After calling Nancy a “sexy girl,” Meg even tried to get the Tonight’s show invited to confess the “juicy part” of what Nancy “really gave” by flirting with Steve throughout stranger things 4. Teasing that her character has “options” moving forward, Dyer suggested that Nancy “probably just needs some me time” after the death-defying events that unfolded during the last season. “Maybe even a little therapy,” she said, adding, “They’re still in high school; it’s quite intense.
Having had “so much to think about,” Meg – who also hilariously pleaded for Shannon Purser’s Barb return – concluded her argument with a pointed statement about Nancy’s romantic choices. “Jonathan is boring. She’s so smart, she’s so pretty. She has things to do. Yes, we love Nancy.
The stranger things cast, or at least one of them in particular, seems to return the rapper’s love. In season 4 of the supernatural Netflix series, Sadie Sink’s Max Mayfield escaped the curse of Vecna by listening to his favorite song, “Running Up That Hill” by Kate Bush. As viewers widely debated which song would save them, even actor Noah Schnapp, who plays Will Byers, weighed in with a nod to Meg and Cardi B. “If I’m ever cursed by vecna just play WAP on my AirPods and I’ll be out of this trance in no time,” Schnapp tweeted on May 30.
Backstage at Fallon, Meg proved it’s all about love by introducing Dyer to “some real demogorgonsaka her French bulldogs, 4oe and Oneita, as she later shared on Twitter.
