Meghan Trainor is getting ready to cast her first ballot.
After stating that she had "never voted" and didn't "have any desire to" in a recent magazine interview
, the 22-year-old pop star cleared the air in an exclusive sit-down with ET's Cameron Mathison, saying that her quotes were published "out of context."
"I wanted to learn more about both parties and it's one of the biggest elections of all time," she told ET backstage during the Seattle stop of her Untouchable Tour
. "It's such a big deal and I figured it out, and I am ready. I'm ready to vote."
Trainor previously admitted
to Billboard that she "should be way more aware" of the current Presidential race, adding: "But I've never voted and I don't have any desire to."
Meanwhile, Trainor is busy performing for her loyal fans
throughout North America all summer. It's been two years
since she arrived on the pop music scene with "All About That Bass," and she's still surprised by her newfound fame.
"Last night, I went to Cheesecake Factory and my security guard [said], 'Do you want me to come with you?' and I was like, 'No, dude. It's Cheesecake! I will be fine,'" she told us. "I got in there and I got swamped. Ah, maybe I should have had [security] come with me!"
But don't expect the "Me Too" singer to have a diva attitude backstage at her fan meet and greets.
"[One fan] had lipstick all over her teeth because she was just a mess, and I was like, 'All right, all right. Here we go. This is our one opportunity to get an amazing selfie right now, OK? So we are going to lick our teeth and we are going to wipe those tears, and we are going to have the best smile we got. Are you ready?'" Trainor recalled with a laugh.
