One does not simply attain the prestigious title of 'World's Most Beautiful' by being attractive alone. As clichéd as it may sound, beauty really is but skin-deep and at the tender age of twenty-one, superstar Meghan Trainor has managed to prove just that.
Like many teenagers, Meghan also struggled with body image issues growing up. It's difficult to look at yourself and think you're beautiful the way you are when pressure from the media and society to look like supermodels are rampant. When Meghan wrote 'All About That Bass' (in 45 minutes, no less), Hollywood producer- LA Reid convinced her to take the leap from songwriter to pop star and she's definitely never looking back!

During her Press Conference here in Singapore last Thursday (23rd April 2015), when asked to share some tips on being confident, the 'All About That Bass' singer had this to say about her hit single. "Listen to the song and focus on the lyrics. Focus real hard, don't focus on the skinny b-line... that's not what I'm talking about. I also noticed speaking out loud, saying 'I look beautiful today', that helps significantly because then you start really believing it." Being confident and having self-love is something you never stop working on so it is extremely heartening to know that there still are many positive role models out there today, wanting to and succeeding in making a difference in the lives of so many people.
Meghan recalls some heart-warming experiences throughout her career where her fans (Megatronz) and their parents alike, have come up to and thanked her for saving their lives with her music and the positive messages behind them. An amazing role model with a great head on her shoulders, the only direction this beautiful soul will be heading is up. When asked how she would like to be remembered, Meghan said "I wanna be remembered as a great songwriter who wrote inspiring songs." and by the looks of things, she's definitely on her way there.
Be sure to grab a copy of her latest album entitled 'Title'.
