Meghan Trainor Pulls 'Me Too' Music Video After Unauthorized Photoshopping Of Her Waist

Posted: Updated:

In 2014, Meghan Trainor debuted her pop hit "All About That Bass," where she proudly sang the lyric, "I see the magazine workin' that Photoshop. We know that shit ain't real, come on now, make it stop."

And just mere hours after dropping her latest music video for her new track "Me Too" on Monday afternoon, Trainor deleted all evidence of the video from the web.

The reasoning? "They Photoshopped the crap out of me," Meghan said. "I'm so sick of it, I'm over it. So I took it down until they fix it."

"My waist is not that teeny, I had a bomb waist that night, I don't know why they didn't like my waist," the 22-year-old confessed on Snapchat. "But I didn't approve that video, and it went out for the world, so I'm embarrassed."

#METOOVIDEO 💙😆👏🏼 so soooon!

The American pop star, who noted "Me Too" was and still is one of her favourite videos, was quick to act once she noticed many of her fans commenting on the fact that her natural curves had been slimmed.

In an interview with USA Today, M-Train explained how upsetting the incident was.

"I screamed in my hotel room," the Grammy-winning artist said. "I was like, 'Why would they do this?' I cried. I had to try not to cry because I had my [makeup] done, and was like, 'Don’t ruin this. Go work and ignore it,' but I couldn’t help it."


Photoshopping is an issue that hits close to home for Trainor, as it was a topic of discussion in "All About That Bass," which was a bold statement on body positivity and loving your size.

A new video is set to be released on Tuesday morning that Meghan has approved herself.
