Skechers Star Meghan Trainor Lashes Back After Unauthorized Photoshop Of Music Video

Pop singer and Skechers ambassador Meghan Trainor says her new video hit a sour note.

The Grammy winner, who debuted a Skechers commercial in March, took to social media Monday to blast the producers behind the release of her new music video, “Me Too,” which, she claims was digitally altered to make her look skinny.

The songstress, who rose to fame with top hits such as “All About That Bass” and “Lips Are Moving,” told fans on Snapchat the video was released without her consent.

“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 said.

On Tuesday, Trainor rereleased the “Me Too” video, thanking fans on Instagram for their support. In her post, which shows the original video outtake side by side with the altered version, she said, “The real #metoo video is finally up! Missed that bass. Thank you everyone for the support.”



When Trainor, who is known for singing about her curvy physique, partnered with Skechers earlier this year, company president Michael Greenberg said he was excited to add her to the brand roster.

“With the media attention after her well-deserved win at the Grammy Awards and her new album, Meghan’s impact as an influencer continues to grow,” Greenberg said in the March statement. “Young women around the world are inspired by her, so we couldn’t be happier that Meghan is a member of the Skechers family.”

The partnership runs through 2017 on all media platforms, including television, print, online, social media and outdoor.
