All About That Bass

meghan

Meghan Trainor is a pop singer-songwriter from Nantucket. She entered pop stardom with the controversial but danceable body-positivity anthem “All About That Bass”, released in June 2014.

Why I chose this song title as my blog title…

  1. It’s Body-Positive – Meghan has that thickness, big booty and waist. She is proud of all of it, even though the expectation of modern women is a pencil-thin figure.
  2. It’s REAL – Models are often Photoshopped to get rid of their wrinkles and fat rolls -(can the REAL slim shady please stand up!)
  3. It’s Encouraging – Momma was reassuring Meghan that being fat wasn’t something to be ashamed about, and there’s some benefits that she should embrace (thanks Mom).
  4. It resonates with almost every female – even the little ones – The world famous Barbie doll may be just a doll little kids play with, but there have been many occurrences of little girls trying to be as skinny as the Barbie doll is. Meghan doesn’t care for a figure as unrealistic as a barbie doll’s figure, she is comfortable being just the way she is. She wishes to be her own size instead of conforming to society’s.
  5. “I’m bringing booty back” – This is a reference of Justin Timberlake’s “SexyBack”, but she rewrites the song’s infamous line for her own purposes – I find this very clever – I mean who actually sets the standard for what sexy should look like?
  6.  It’s Empowering – “Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top” – Due to the misconceptions concerning women created by media in our culture, seemingly all girls complain about being fat — even when they really aren’t. Meghan addresses them with a message of female empowerment: you’re perfect the way you are! Be you and don’t care about what other people think.
  7. Bass instruments are the deepest and biggest in an orchestra – I simply love the sounds bass intruments produce – you could say I’m intrgued by them.

‘Cause every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top

Yeah, my mama she told me “don’t worry about your size”
(Shoo wop wop, sha-ooh wop wop)
She says, “Boys like a little more booty to hold at night”
(That booty, uh, that booty booty)
You know I won’t be no stick figure silicone Barbie doll
So if that what you’re into, then go ‘head and move along

Because you know I’m all about that bass
