Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – After taking down the first version of “Me Too” video, Meghan Trainor explained that she did not want her waist to be photoshopped as she explained that she only asked her mole hair and her mustache to be digitally edited.

The 22-year-old singer made the headlines when she asked the “Me Too” video to be removed from her official accounts when she saw that her waist was downsized. She told her fans via her Snapchat account that she was embarrassed on how her waist looked teeny after editing. A day later, however, another video was uploaded and it seems like it shows the real waist of the songstress.

Trainor talked to Howard Stern on his Sirius XM radio show about what her limits are when it comes to editing. She shared, "It was a thing where I asked them, like, 'Hey, can you hide my mustache and take off my mole hair…'" Stern asked if she really has a mustache and she explained no but she wanted to remove any facial hair in the video. She added, “… but I never said, like, cut off my rib.”

The “All About That Bass” singer also shared that she called every head of the label such as L.A. Reid and Sylvia Rhone to take down the video. She noted that she told them she does not care what it takes for them to do that but she wants the video to be taken down.

She continued to say, "I'm the poster child for no Photoshop. That's my thing, and I was skinnier than those dancers, who are also very skinny, so when you do that [Photoshop her waist] everyone knows that ain't real."

She also shared that she was upset due to her actual waist not making the cut. Trainor said that she worked so hard as it was a 22-hour shoot. She added, “…and that was 2 a.m. and I had a Spanx , corset, I had everything—I couldn't have gotten more compliments that night, of, 'Wow, you look so snatched.' And for them to like cut off another half, I was like, but why would I wear all that torture if you just cut it off anyways ?"
