I am ALLLLLL about body positivity and acceptance and girls telling each other they’re beautiful the way they are cause girl power is awesome
Basically, the whole song is shaming girls who don’t have that “boom boom” (aka curves). The music video has the singer, Meghan Trainor, and her back-up dancers (also…racism is another issue people have brought up with this video) basically mocking a girl who is thin and wrapped in cellophane.
Also the lyric, “Go ahead and tell them skinny bitches that” reflects that as well.
Like, I get it. The media tells us to be thin so much it’s a nice refresher to have a song like this. But it isn’t truly a song about body acceptance unless it includes all body types and races. That might be impossible to fit into one music video but this one is DEFINITELY lacking in diversity, body type wise.
Let’s talk about another part of the lyrics: “Yeah, my mama she told me don’t worry about your size; She says boys like a little more booty to hold at night.”
So many girls have this mentality that they have to look a certain way for other people. YOU DON’T. You are you and you are wonderful and amazing just the way you are and if some boy or girl doesn’t like it, then WHO GIVES A FRICK FRACK.
It’s a catchy, fun song but the lyrics are pretty much awful. I think maybe Meghan just didn’t really think about it??? Idk her or her story so I’m not really judging her, I just wish people thought about this stuff more. It’s important.
