Was Meghan Trainor's waist given the Photoshop treatment?
The 22-year-old singer had her "Me Too" music video removed from YouTube shortly after it debuted on Monday, explaining that her figure
had been digitally altered.
"My waist is not that teeny," Trainor said on Snapchat. "I had a bomb waist that night, I don't know why they didn't like my waist that night."
"I didn't approve that video and it went out for the world," she added. "So I'm embarrassed."
Earlier in the day, Trainor seemed unhappy on Twitter, posting an angry purple devil emoji.
ET’s Sophie Schillaci spoke to Trainor recently while promoting her new album, Thank You -- which is currently available as an Apple Music exclusive, and releases wide on Friday -- where she revealed that the vision for "Me Too" and the accompanying music video was to promote body confidence.
"It's another confident song ‘cause I told them I want more self-love songs," she explained. "We killed it on the first album with that, so this is another very confident one that I want everyone to start singing, like, 'If I was you, I'd wanna be me too.'"
The singer did admit that planning the video got a little bit tricky.
"The music video, we struggled for a minute, like, "How do we do this and be funny with it and have fun with it instead of trying to be serious and say those words?'" she continued. "So I actually wrote up the treatment myself as a day in the life of Meghan Trainor."
While Trainor promotes positive self image often in her music, she did admit in March that she still deals with lingering body image issues.
"Recently we were doing a fitting for this music video, and I was like, 'All these dancers next to me, they're so tiny,' and I felt insecure again," the GRAMMY winner told Schillaci during a prior sit-down at Los Angeles' Studio City Sound. "My best friend was like, 'You are all about that bass. Do not forget that.' I was like, 'You're right! I am hot, and I look bomb in these outfits, and I'm going to kill it in this video.'"
