Meghan Trainor is Breaking All the Rules
Is it just us or can you not get Meghan Trainor’s song “All About That Bass” out of your head too? As addictive as it is fun, Meghan’s new mega hit makes a mega statement about body image. As the lyrics say it best, “Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top.”
While Meghan Trainor would not call herself a feminist, she did set out to write a song that would break all the rules. And Meghan didn’t just break the rules, she broke out as a hit star when “All About That Bass” reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100. Although the tune has a catchy and whimsical beat, it also makes a powerful statement about self acceptance. That includes loving your curves and realizing that every body is different. Those who truly love you will love every bit of you. Her song says, “I ain’t no size two, but I can shake it, shake it like I’m supposed to do.”
Meghan began writing songs at age 11. As a self-proclaimed tomboy and someone who struggled with insecurity throughout her life, she is embracing this opportunity to send a powerful message to girls across the globe. “Love yourself more,” is what Meghan recently encouraged of girls in a Billboard Magazine interview. Now at age 20, Meghan still struggles with her image, but she is learning to overcome her insecurities with her own lyrics.
Meghan’s album isn’t a one-track message either. Her music is infused with personal values including a track dedicated to her future husband. She describes how she wants to be treated in a relationship because she’s been in a few bad ones herself. Her sentiments are an example to many young women who don’t love and respect themselves enough to find a partner who will treat them right. “Sass can get you just as far as sex,” said Meghan in a recent NY Post interview.
Meghan’s style is full of sass and we love that she created her own version of pop star. Just like her lyrics, Meghan’s full figure fashion looks are inspiring. From polka dots to wild prints, school-girl charm and flirty florals, Meghan’s inner beauty certainly shines through. She’s a new force to be reckoned with and this role model is someone every woman can stand behind.
