Humans have the worst habit of letting self-loathing thoughts cycle endlessly in their heads. If you've ever struggled with your weight, for instance, you know what I mean. Well happy day, an antidote has arrived in the form of Nashville singer Meghan Trainor's All About That Bass.
meghan trainor's all about that bass
"I know you think you're fat, but I'm here to tell ya every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top," sings a cheeky Meghan Trainor in All About That Bass, an ultra-peppy ditty all about, it turns out, accepting yourself whatever your size. Now don't go thinking this is just another preachy self-esteem anthem -- it ain't. A hip-swinging debut for the 20-year-old Trainer, this tune is an infectious combination of sass and straight-talk.
"I wrote this song because I myself struggle with this concept of self-acceptance," Trainor told the Huffington Post via email. "It was written from a real place so I’m glad that other people can relate to it."
Meghan Trainor's All About That Bass isn't the first to grab attention with a message of love yourself, damnit! Christina Aguilera's Beautiful did pretty well, right? But in contrast, All About That Bass is sooooo ridiculously catchy that you won't be able to get it out of your mental rotation. And for a change, that's a very good thing. When it comes to negative self-thought, All About the Bass is a waaaay more better tune to get stuck in your head.
Now, with "I'm all about that bass, 'bout that bass, no treble" on repeat in your laptop and in your brain, go check out Dare magazine's eye-catching summer issue. The bathing suit story, which includes the above photo, is gorgeous.
UPDATE: Turns out that although Meghan Trainor wrote All About That Bass, she wasn't originally supposed to sing it. Get the details here at cosmopolitan.com. All About That Bass is, of course, available via iTunes.
