Meghan Trainor Thanks to my daughter Michelle “Mickey” for turning me on to a fun video that is going viral very fast.  It stars 20-year-old Meghan Trainor performing a catchy song called “All About That Bass”. The upbeat music keeps your toes tapping and you can’t resist joining in the chorus.  But what everyone is talking about is the lyrics built on the positive message that girls with curves can feel great about their bodies. You’ll get the idea from just these lyrics sampled from Trainor’s song:

“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 And all the right junk in all the right places”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7PCkvCPvDXk It’s hard to tell exactly what size Meghan Trainor wears. My best guess is about a 14. That makes her pretty average. I think she looks beautiful and healthy in the flirty blue pastel plus size party dress. Trainor tells the TODAY Show that she wrote the song because like so many other young women she faces body issues.   “I definitely wrote it for myself because I struggled with that forever,” Trainor tells TODAY. She feels social media pressures young girls to look perfect based on impossible beauty standards. Meghan is not alone. A TODAY/AOL body image survey reveals 85% of teens worry about their appearance often. And eight out of 10 American teens have dieted according to Keep it Real Campaign. Trainor’s attempt to "bring booty back” earns her fans. They thank her from the bottom of their hearts for expressing their own feelings in such a real, reassuring and entertaining way with words like: "Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top." But critics attack the song as musical "rubbish".   She also took some knocks for not so flattering references to girls so thin they are skinny.

See Meghan Trainor for Yourself

Watch the video and read the lyrics below, courtesy of Azlyrics.com, and then tell me whether you're  fan or a critic of Trainor's song:
