Abstract: The past decade has witnessed impressive progress in our understanding of thephysical properties of massive stars in the Magellanic Clouds, and how theycompare to their cousins in the Galaxy. I summarise new results in this field,including evidence for reduced mass-loss rates and faster stellar rotationalvelocities in the Clouds, and their present-day compositions. I also discussthe stellar temperature scale, emphasizing its dependence on metallicity acrossthe entire upper-part of the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram.
