Meghan Trainor left 'embarrassed' by edited waist in music video

Meghan Trainor was left frustrated and embarrassed when her waist was digitally trimmed down in one of her music videos.

Back in 2016, the singer took down the video to Me Too when she realised her figure had been heavily altered and demanded the issue be fixed.

In a new interview with model Ashley Graham for her podcast Pretty Big Deal, the Grammy winner opened up about the fall-out from the incident, and insisted that she would never approve of altering her body because she was a "no Photoshop girl".

"You have no say," the 26-year-old explained, adding that while she was attentive to the edits of the video, she instantly knew something was wrong when it was released. "I approved a video. It wasn't that."

The All About That Bass hitmaker said she originally thought it was fans who had used Photoshop on her waist and confessed that what she saw on the screen "wasn't human".

She then insisted that her team take down the video and replace it with the unaltered one, and was left upset about the incident because it contradicted the body positivity messages in her songs, like All About That Bass.

"Of everyone (this could happen to), me? I am the 'no Photoshop' girl," Meghan shared, adding that she was "embarrassed" about the situation.

After former Sports Illustrated beauty Ashley complained about the times she had explicitly told photographers on photoshoots not to retouch her body, only for them to ignore her demands, Meghan said she was unnerved by the experience of being altered without her permission.

"It's so frustrating," she sighed.
