Although the song has been successful thus far, “some believe that the artist wrote the song to shame skinny people, and praise those who have more of a curvy figure,” said Olivia Loaiza ’16.
According to Yahoo News, one of the lines of the song that people have thought to be most offensive is: “I’m bringing booty back; go ahead and tell them skinny b—‘s that…no, i’m just playing- I know you think you’re fat.”
Trainor defended her choice of lyrics when she said to The Atlantic: “Some girls have commented, ‘I’m a size zero, so you must hate me,’ But that’s not it at all!”
Some fans defend the singer, saying that the catchy tune is about “loving and embracing your body.”
April Tate ’17, said “I really love this song because it helps girls feel good about themselves and learn how to gain self-confidence and also how to feel confident and comfortable about your body.”
