But behind every great butt is a great PR strategy, which is where Meghan Trainor comes in. Unsurprisingly, the inclusion of sales figures the following week then pushed it straight to 1. How has this previously unknown year-old somehow made it from small-town obscurity to the top of the UK charts within the space of a summer? Rarely does somebody go from nothing to number one without a quietly calculated combination of shrewd PR and good timing. The song was written by Trainor herself, but she spent months trying to flog it to everybody in the music industry, which was of course fruitless because to pull off this song without sounding like a condescending prick you have to be packing some bounce, and nobody in the music industry is beyond a size 2 except Adele, whose personal brand does not lend itself to rap-infused breakdowns. Eventually, Epic Records picked up on it and Trainor performed the single herself. Nobody in the video is, apart from the one comically obese guy enlisted to dance fabulously. As Trainor has said herself , the song and the video go pretty much hand-in-hand in terms of appeal.

Hey, I think it's great to tell people to be comfortable with and love their bodies. I really do. I think that "All About That Bass" wants people to think that that's the message of the song, but it isn't. Because Meghan Trainor talks about how people should accept her body for what it is, and then goes on to make fun of "skinny bitches. My real issue with the song, however, is the point at which Trainor brags about how she's "bringing booty back. Well, she claims that she's doing that for booty. Which is a lie. In fact, right now, booty is more popular than it's ever been, and not because of Meghan Trainor. She's trying to take credit for something that's already popular. That'd be like if I showed up to a party and was like "I'm bringing shirts back.
The song sparked a body-positive movement that proves you don't have to be a size two to shake it like you're supposed to do. Yet while she may sing about her butt, that doesn't mean she's showing it off any time soon. In a recent interview with MailOnline, Meghan Trainor says she prefers to keep her booty a secret. She explains,. I'm not even being sarcastic — it really is an important statement! In a way, it's reminiscent of Taylor Swift's Belly Button-Gate , where she said she wants to keep her navel a mystery. I think it's awesome when celebrities intentionally choose to keep aspects of their lives private. Just because they're public figures doesn't mean every aspect of their lives should be up for public scrutiny — especially when it comes to their appearance.
Home no title About Contact. I'm a nevermo, but I married a then TBM girl, so maybe my perspective will be of help to you. If she is still Mormon and you are not, she will always secretly hope that you convert, just like you will always secretly hope she leaves the church. I don't think anyone here intended a dismissal of the girl as a human being by stating such. You are commenting using your Facebook account.
