Dear Angry Girl,
I was listening to the radio when you called in threatening to never listen to that station if they played Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass” ever again. First of all I’d like to say good for you! Everyone should stand up for what they believe in and with just as much conviction as you displayed.
However, I think you’re wrong. You said you hated that song and Meghan Trainor should be ashamed of herself for making fun of skinny girls. You also went on to say her song was going to make women become obese.
My question to you is… what planet are you from?! For years the “skinny girls” have been the ones to get noticed for all of their positive attributes and now it’s time for the curvy girls to get in on some of that action. The song is an anthem that helps represent a group of women that have been looked down on and made fun of. It is an uplifting song that quit frankly I think anyone could shake their ass to.
Women spend so much time hating their bodies whether they are small or big and this song is telling them to love the skin they’re in. How can that be taken as a bad thing?
Oh and by the way, a song cannot make anyone obese. Meghan Trainor cannot make anyone obese. I highly doubt that after listening to that song all of the skinny girls balled up in the corner crying stuffing themselves with junk food just so they can have “All the right junk in all the right places.” No, instead I bet they get up and dance to the damn song and enjoy the catchy lyrics instead of dissecting them like you did.
Look I understand how there can be hurt feelings over the whole “skinny bitches” part but come on, let the curvy girls have this one.
A Curvy Girl
P.S. I'd love to know your thoughts on Nicki Minaj.
