All About That Bass

Meghan Trainor

June 2nd, 2014

Employing 1950s-style doowop with a modern-day twist, Meghan Trainor declares "Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top" in a song praised by many for its catchy beat and body positive lyrics...so long as you're not one of those "skinny bitches." Nah, she's just playin'. She knows you think you're fat.
