The singer says in an interview with Howard Stern that she initially only asked the editing team to hide her mustache and her mole hair in the video.
The official music video for Meghan Trainor’s “Me Too” has returned to her Vevo page. After sharing and immediately removing a version which she claimed was photoshopped without her consent, the singer uploaded the unaltered version on Tuesday, May 10.
Trainor previously ranted on Snapchat that she’s not happy with the fact that her waist in the first clip was photoshopped to look smaller. “My waist is not that teeny,” she explained the removal. “I had a bomb waist that night, I don’t know why they didn’t like my waist. I didn’t approve that video and it went out to the world. So I’m embarrassed.”
After releasing the real video, she posted on Instagram a photo showing how much her waist had been retouched. “The real #metoo video is finally up! Missed that bass. Thank you everyone for the support,” she wrote in the caption.
She talked more about her altered video in an interview with Howard Stern on SiriusXM on Tuesday, revealing she initially only asked the editing team to hide her mustache and her mole hair. “I just asked them to do that, but I never said, ‘cut off my rib,’ ” she said. “I saw screenshots the fans were taking on Instagram and I was like, ‘why are the fans messing with my waist?’ I was like, ‘oh my god, that’s not the fans, that’s the video.’ And I must have not even seen it.”
She then recalled contacting “the god of Vevo… every head of label… L.A. Reid… Sylvia Rhone” and asking them to take down the video after learning of her edited waist. ” ‘I don’t care what it takes, take it down.’ I’m the poster child for no Photoshop, that is my thing!” she continued.
