Meghan Trainor: Positive Feminist Role Model Or Sexist Regressive?

Alan Ewart

The world of pop music must seem very confusing for "All About The Bass" star Meghan Trainor this week. Meghan was undoubtedly one of the biggest breakout stars of 2014, as her hit song shot to No. 1 in over 50 countries. Trainor was widely praised for championing a positive body image for curvy women though some felt that her lyrics objectified women.

This week, 21-year-old Meghan released a new single accompanied by a 1950's style video. The video of the song, called "Dear Future Husband" has been attacked by fans and critics alike as being sexist. Metro goes as far as to ask "is Meghan Trainor's 'Dear Future Husband' the most sexist music video ever?"

Meghan Trainor sings lines demanding that her future husband brings her chocolate and flowers, opens doors for her and treats her like a lady. Fans have objected to lyrics like "if you'll treat me right, I'll be the perfect wife, buying groceries, buy-buying what you need."

Meghan continues "Open doors for me and you might get some kisses" and "After every fight, just apologize and maybe then I'll let you try and rock my body right."

Many music fans took to social media platform Twitter to criticize Meghan Trainor condemning her lyrics as sexist and regressing back to the 1950's.

Meghan was also criticized for ill-judged comments about eating disorders. The Mail report that in an interview Meghan was asked if she had ever been anorexic or bulimic and she replied saying that she had tried it once but "didn't have the strength to make it through to dinner."
