Meghan Trainor Explains How Carson Daly Helped Her Through Her Anxiety

Meghan Trainor looks stunning on the cover of Euphoria. Magazine‘s new issue, available now.

Here’s what the 24-year-old musician had to share with the mag:

On her upcoming album, Treat Myself: “It symbolizes a moment in my life that I had after my second [vocal] surgery, where I kind of crumbled emotionally and physically. My body just kinda gave up on me and I had to remind myself that I can say ‘no’ and that I have to focus on myself and treat myself.”

On how Carson Daly helped her work through her anxiety: “I couldn’t explain it to my own parents– like, they didn’t understand when I was like ‘my head’s on fire, my back feels like someone has a flame to it’ or ‘I have nausea and I don’t know why’ and it was just ’cause my adrenals were all messed up. Hearing Carson Daly explain exactly how I felt was better than a doctor; it was like ‘Oh, a regular human being who is in the industry feels like I do’ and I told him ‘you don’t know how much that saved me.’”

On the gender disparity in the music industry: “I feel like all women in music right now are slaying but there just needs to be more of us. I would love to see more songwriters. I’m so used to– and I hate that I can say I’m used to– like, when they set me up with a producer: it’s a man, it’s always a man. I recently wrote with a woman and she was a producer, and I just hugged her and I was like ‘you’re the first female producer I’ve ever gotten to work with and I need more of you,’ like, this is so sad. And so I just want to see more of us all over, even in the entertainment industry in general: more directors, more executives.”
