Meghan Trainor, a proponent of positive body image, shockingly seems to be eating her own words! The ‘All About That Bass’ pop star revealed on Nov. 10. that she likes Ariana Grande’s ‘thigh-gap!’
Meghan Trainor‘s breakout song, “All About That Bass,” inspires women around the world to embrace their curves, but now the 20-year-old singer seems to be all about Ariana Grande‘s “thigh-gap.” Wait, what?
Ariana Grande’s ‘Thigh-Gap’ — Meghan Trainor Approves
Meghan has become an advocate for curvy girls to be confident. In the “All About That Bass” lyrics, the main message is for women to embrace their natural figures: “Yeah, my momma she told me don’t worry about your size / She says, boys they like a little more booty to hold at night / You know I won’t be no stick-figure, silicone Barbie doll.”
Well, now, Meghan could be contradicting her mission to spread body acceptance! In a Nov. 10. interview with Cosmpolitan.com, Meghan praised Ariana Grande’s petite figure when asked about it during a goofy game of ‘Treble or Bass.’
As Cosmopolitan Editor, Amy Odell, explains, Bass means Meghan is “all about it” and Treble implies Megan is not.
When “thigh-gap” came up, Megan said the following, “If you rock it, bass… I don’t know. I like Ariana Grande’s nice thigh-gap; she’s got good legs.”
We can’t help but notice that there is a huge gap between Meghan’s appreciation of the 21-year-old’s figure and the other comments she made in the very same Cosmopolitan interview.
Does Meghan’s Song Mirror How Real Feelings About Body Image?
During her interview, Meghan talked about the meaning of her hit single ‘All About That Bass’, which is all about loving your body. Surprisingly, the pop star admitted that she did not always feel comfortable in her own skin.
“I wrote the song as a ‘Wow, I really wish I felt like this’ … now I go out there and I’m like, ‘It’s all about this bass. It has helped a lot.”
Additionally, Meghan addressed her diet and work out when asked if she felt pressure as a pop star to change the way she feels and she looks.
“Not really. There’s no diets planned and there i no you gotta work out … I don’t do that. I ate pizza yesterday and I am eating Chinese food later today. It’s gonna be great. But so far people have actually told me I look like I’ve lost weight. I think it’s because I’ve been standing all day or dancing.”
Although Meghan may not be taking extreme measures to match Ariana’s thigh-gap, we do think she should be more careful with her comments about body image! Millions of girls look up to her and believe in her hit song’s lyrics!
