Meghan Trainor Was Photoshopped Without Her Permission And She's 'So Sick Of It'
The singer took down her new music video, "Me Too," after realizing her waist had been altered to look "teeny"
Meghan Trainor's waist was photoshopped in her new music video without her permission and she's 'pissed off', 'embarrassed', and frankly, 'over it'.
A few hours after releasing the video for "Me Too," she announced she was taking down the apparently unapproved edit until it was fixed to reflect what her waist actually looks like. Because she's proud of it, dammit! (We can't say we were surprised by her reaction, considering Trainor has consistently taken a stand against unrealistic body standards.)
"Hey guys, I took down the 'Me Too' video because they photoshopped the crap out of me and I'm so sick of it and I'm over it, so I took it down until they fix it," she explained on her Snapchat. (Next up: Would calling out photoshopped ads make a difference when it comes to body image?)
"My waist is not that teeny. I had a bomb waist that night. I don't know why they didn't like my waist, but I didn't approve that video and it went out for the world, so I'm embarrassed," she continued.
Despite being clearly annoyed, she actually apologized to fans for the mix-up, and finished with this gem of a thought: "The video's still one of my favorite videos I've ever done. I'm very proud of it, I'm just pissed off that they broke my ribs, ya know?"
Good news: The singer just announced that the unaltered video is now back up for your viewing pleasure. "The real #metoo video is finally up! Missed that bass. Thank you everyone for the support," she wrote. Keep doing you, Meghan, and we'll keep supporting.
