Oh-no! Meghan Trainor yanked her ‘Me Too’ video from all media sites only moments after it was released because she noticed that her body had been digitally altered to make her appear slimmer. Watch her explain her reasoning here!
Meghan Trainor, 22, is all about that bass — so you could imagine her surprise when she didn’t even recognize her own body in her new music video for “Me Too.” The singer took the video down quickly after it’s release on May 9, then took to Snapchat to blast the editors for completely photoshopping her. Watch here!
Fans were totally confused when they went to search for Meghan’s vibrant and free-spirited video for “Me Too” after it dropped on May 9…because it was nowhere to be found! Meghan showed off a billboard advertising the video on Snapchat, but in a follow-up clip, she explained that she was calling “the Gods of Vevo” to have the clip taken down!
“Hey guys, I took down the “Me Too” video because they photoshopped the crap out of me,” the Grammy winner explained. “And I’m so sick of it and I’m over it, so I took it down until they fix it.”
For those that got to see the video before it disappeared, Meg’s body hadn’t been drastically altered, but her shape was noticeably different. “My waist is not that teeny,” she continued. “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.”
The “Lips Are Movin” singer demanded editors to take the digitally altered video down before its official debut in New York City’s Times Square, but it looks like her demand weren’t met, so she took matters into her own hand.
It may seem like Meghan taking down the video was a little over the top, but the song is all about confidence and loving yourself, so she had to take a stand. “I thank God everyday, that I woke up feeling this way,” she sings on the track. “And I can’t help loving myself.
And I don’t need nobody else.” That doesn’t sound like a girl who wants her body to be “fixed” or changed, right!?
Despite the Photoshop fail, Meghan still loved shooting the clip. “The video is still one of my favorite videos I’ve ever done, I’m very proud of it,” she explained in another Snapchat. “I just am pissed off that they broke my ribs, you know?” The singer has promised fans a re-release of the video with her all of her curves on May 10.
