Meghan Trainor’s new music video for her single, “Me too,” was released yesterday, but taken down by the pop star herself due to Photoshop issues.
The singer, who took to Instagram to show the difference in what Photoshop does, told her fans in a Snapchat post that they “photo-shopped the crap out of me.”
The 22-year-old wanted the video removed immediately due to how “embarrassing” how “teeny” her waist was.
She told Howard Stern in an interview on his Sirus XM radio show she “called every head of label.”
“I called L.A. Reid, Sylvia Rhone, I called all of them,” said Trainor. “I said, ‘Take this video down. I don’t care what it takes. Take it down.”
Trainor has always been an advocate for body love, no matter what size you are. She wanted the clip to reflect her authentic body.
“I’m the poster child for no Photoshop,” she said. “That’s my thing, and I was skinnier than those dancers, who are also very skinny, so when you do that everyone knows that ain’t real.”
Her words made the point, and the video was taken down. Today the Photoshop-less version was released on Vevo.
In an Instagram post she captioned, “Missed that bass.”
Trainor’s “Me too,” single will be from her new album “Thank You,” coming out later this month.
