Meghan Trainor Opens Up On Meeting the Right Guy
Here’s what the 21-year-old singer had to share with the mag:
On being harsh about her looks early in her career, and gaining body confidence: “When I saw photos of myself, I would think, I look awful. There’s a double chin! I never thought I’d be a pop star. I don’t look like Rihanna. [Then] after the video for “All About That Bass” came out… when I was signing autographs, this girl came up to me bawling and said, ‘You make me feel pretty again. Thank you.’ It really resonated with me that this girl was so gorgeous, and she didn’t even know it. It’s a mental thing. Just recently I was thinking, ‘I’m confident now, and I look good,’ and that’s because I’ve started saying those words out loud more. So now when I see pictures, I’m like, ‘Oh my God, why would I hate myself at all? I look incredible in that picture!’”
On waiting for the right guy: “I knew my life would be complicated if my dreams of becoming a success in music came true. And I knew I’d have to work hard to achieve those dreams, and that they’d have to take a front seat in my life. So even though I went cray in high school, now I haven’t kissed a boy in forever. I keep telling myself that the right guy is going to be worth the wait. When I find the one, it’s going to be like, ‘Damn, that’s why you took so long! ’Cause you’re awesome!’”
On the best lesson she’s learned so far: “I guess the biggest thing that I’ve learned is, never doubt your dreams. No matter how big your dream is or how ridiculous you think it is, you can’t doubt it—you have to believe in it. Because it will happen.”
