Keeping it real. Meghan Trainor pulled the video of her latest single, “Me Too,” after she realized her waist had been Photoshopped in post-production, without her permission.
The 22-year-old singer was quick to act when fans started picking up on the fact that her body had been slimmed down in several shots, making her midsection appear smaller and her outline more curvy.
In a series of Snapchat posts the outspoken musician declared her post-production team had “Photoshopped the crap out of me.”
“I’m so sick of it, I’m over it. So I took it down until they fix it,” she continued. And while the video remained one of her “favorite videos” of all time, she wasn’t prepared to let fans see it until the alternations have been removed.
“My waist is not that teeny, I had a bomb waist that night, I don’t know why they didn’t like my waist,” she went on. “I didn’t approve that video and it went out to the world so I’m embarrassed.”
Trainor was a guest on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live later on Monday, May 9, and promised fans the new release, without Photoshopping, was coming soon.
“Look at that waist!” she said, jumping up to show off her real figure. “I’m snatch, I’ve been working out a little bit,” she said, full of sass.
“I called the gods at Vevo and said take it down now,” she said, of her fast actions once she realized what had happened. “But I fixed it, I approved a new version and it’s coming out tomorrow morning.”
