Is it all about that publicity?: Meghan Trainor pulls ‘Photoshopped video’

Singer Meghan Trainor has reposted her latest music video with her curves restored hours after taking it down because producers altered her body shape. The 22-year-old revealed she pulled the Me Too video because “they Photoshopped the c**p out of me”. Her video premiered on Vevo on Monday but did not last long after Trainor and her fans noticed her waist had been made smaller. “My waist is not that teeny,” the singer said before the new version appeared online the next day.

I had a bomb waist that night, I don’t know why they didn’t like my waist. But I didn’t approve that video and it went out to the world. So I’m embarrassed

Trainor said she thought fans had edited the video in online versions, before realising that was not the case. “I love this video so much, so I was so upset…,” she said. “I called the Gods of Vevo and told them to take that down. I fixed it and approved a new version, it’s coming out like tomorrow morning.” Trainor sang about her opposition to the use of Photoshop, which cannot be used to edit video, in her hit single All About That Bass. However, some fans said they suspected the latest row could be a stunt to whip up publicity for the new single and her album, which is out on Friday.

I see the magazines working that Photoshop, we know that ain’t real, come on now make it stop
