I Am All About That Bass

If you haven’t heard this song yet take a listen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7PCkvCPvDXk

It is by Meghan Trainor, a new artist that was recently signed by L.A. Reid. The girl has talent, she cannot even legally drink yet and she has already established herself as a successful song writer. When I was 20, my best accomplishment was going to a party without ending up being the dumbest drunk in the room, sigh. 

Anyways, I think the song is cute, catchy and fun to listen to. That’s it. I have read a few articles in which feminist writers tore the song apart, because Meghan explains how boys like a little more booty to hold at night, which they felt sent a negative message. I am all for women empowerment, but some feminists get on my last fucking nerve, because I feel like they just want to bitch. I am a heterosexual woman, and as a heterosexual woman I do want to be attractive to males, because that is how nature designed me! There is nothing wrong with wanting guys to find you attractive, and most guys like curves. They signify health. The only issue I have is I dislike how they portrayed the slim brunette as the skinny bitch, because that sends a negative message. Beauty is thin. Beauty is curvy. Beauty is athletic. Beauty is thick. Beauty is chubby. 

One blogger pissed me off, because she basically insinuated the song was about being “plus sized”, and Meghan is no where near being plus sized. She is an average sized girl. She is very cute, she is that girl we want to be friends with. The song is a fun way to show she embraces her body, because Hollywood is a thin obsessed town.
