Body image issues are plaguing the hearts and minds of humanity like pollution plagued the world of Captain Planet & The Planeteers! It seems like if you are not a girl that is runway ready or a guy with a six pack the world writes you off as undesirable. Thankfully a few people dare to think differently and are calling out the media and their famed airbrushing techniques which promote unhealthy body images.
Our Celebrity Crush for this week, Meghan Trainor, is at the forefront of this with songs that tell us it’s okay to be big, curvy, and most of all ourselves!
Earlier this week we were watching a few of Meghan’s videos and found ourselves jamming again to All About That Bass! Those famed lyrics:
Yeah it’s pretty clear, I ain’t no size two
But I can shake it, shake it like I’m supposed to do
‘Cause I got that boom boom that all the boys chase
All the right junk in all the right places
I see the magazines working that Photoshop
We know that shit ain’t real
Come on now, make it stop
If you got beauty beauty just raise ’em up
‘Cause every inch of you is perfect
From the bottom to the top
This is why we love Meghan! Those lyrics just set you free. However, it is not the only thing we love about her! The girl has a lot of “bass” and we love her curves. She can feel out any dress and let’s not forget how beautiful she is. Listening to her single, Dear Future Husband had us smitten. We definitely feel like we’re a perfect candidate for her!
We cannot wait for Meghan’s sophomore album and have no doubt she will have it chalked full of sexy singles and soulful ballads. Check out a few of her videos throughout this post! Happy viewing!
