For a singer who is all about that bass, Meghan Trainor is not happy when it comes to industry attempts to change the way she looks.
Trainor pulled her new video “Me Too” on Monday after discovering she’d been Photoshopped to look skinnier. The video was initially available in the morning, but soon after its release on Vevo, fans couldn’t find it anywhere.
Following the video’s removal, Trainor mysteriously tweeted out an angry emoji and clarified what was happening on Snapchat.

In a series of videos, Trainor explained what went wrong. “Hey guys, I took down the ‘Me Too’ video because they Photoshopped the crap of out of me, and I’m so sick out of it and I’m over it so I took it down until they fix it,” she said.
While most of the video showed Trainor in more casual attire, she wore a striking blue dress as part of a big dance number concluding “Me Too.” Trainor said, “My waist is not that teeny. 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 for the world so I’m embarrassed.”
She now plans on debuting the revised video on Friday. “I told them to fix it A$AP Rocky,” she said, promising that she’ll be visiting Times Square to play it for everyone. “I’m sorry about this,” she concluded.

Even though Trainor teased fans with a still from the music video on May 8 and said it would be arriving soon, everyone will have to wait a few days longer until they see the real Meghan Trainor onscreen.
Trainor isn’t the only artist who has fought back against attempts to change her appearance using Photoshop. Zendaya slammed a French magazine in October after they heavily Photoshopped her for the November issue.
