Meghan Trainor on supposedly 'shaming' thin women: 'I'll get flak for as long as the song lives'
Songstress Meghan Trainor has just shot to the top of the UK singles chart in the midweek update with 'All About That Bass' and she has revealed that she's receiving criticism for the lyrics in the song, which refer to slender women as 'skinny bitches'.
When asked by Britain's The Guardian newspaper if people have hit out at her for allegedly 'shaming' thin women, Trainor explained that she thinks she will get 'flak' for as long as the song is popular:
"Yeah, I’m still getting flak. It’ll come for as long as the song lives, but for the most part people are relating to the self-acceptance part of it, which is amazing, because that was my point."
She went onto talk about her own experience of growing up and trying to be confident about what she's got, adding that she struggled with self-acceptance at times:
"It’s just the fact that I’ve struggled with my conception of myself. People have said to me: “You aren’t big.” In high school, when I’d tell my girls I didn’t want to wear a bikini, they’d be, like: “Stop being silly.” I got all the right junk in all the right places!"
