Meghan Trainor Speaks Truth

Driving around Saturday morning, this fun little “blend of country, pop and throwback rock ‘n’ roll” ditty came on my bluetooth/pandora and I fell in love with the lyrics. Promoting body image and being comfortable in your own skin, Meghan tells us all about her “bass” and that “every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top”.

After researching her and this song today, I learned that A. I’m super late to her and this song, and B. she’s been talked about and interviewed a lot lately because her song has been criticized by many about “skinny shaming”. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly published 3 days ago, Meghan doesn’t seem too fazed by her critics,

Q: Yeah, people seem to really be relating to the song’s message. I wanted to hear about what you had to say about it.

A: Oh my gosh. It makes me tear up. These girls sent me, like, essays about how they hated their lives and hated themselves because of their bodies and the way people were treating them. And they said they heard my song and they said “Forget it, I’m just going to love myself.” It’s insane. They’ll send me pictures of them dancing to my song, and videos. It’s amazing.

Watch the video and lyrics below!

Yeah, it’s pretty clear, I ain’t no size two
But I can shake it, shake it
Like I’m supposed to do
Cause I got that boom boom that all the boys chase
And all the right junk in all the right places

I see the magazines workin’ that Photoshop
We know that shit ain’t real
C’mon now, make it stop
If you got beauty beauty, just raise ’em up
Cause every inch of you is perfect
From the bottom to the top

Yeah, my mama she told me don’t worry about your size
She says boys like a little more booty to hold at night
You know I won’t be no stick figure silicone Barbie doll
So if that’s what you’re into then go ahead and move along

Because you know I’m
All about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass
Hey!

I’m bringing booty back
Go ahead and tell them skinny bitches that
No I’m just playing I know you think you’re fat
But I’m here to tell ya
Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top
