All About That Bass || YouTube


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

You know when you find a song that you love so much you play on repeat about a squillion times a day? I have one of those. 


I've already tweeted about it a couple of times because I love it so much but I thought that since the video is so pretty (I basically want every single outfit), I would share it here too. 

I told a friend recently that I loved everything about this song and he said, 'I don't like it. She says, 'skinny bitches' something or other in it'. I was really disappointed that he had jumped to such a speedy assumption before looking into it properly and for this reason I'm going to include a copy of the lyrics. Note the three lines following relate to the way even the girls we perceive as 'perfect' ('skinny bitches') have insecurities and that everybody, regardless of their size or shape, is beautiful. 


"All About That Bass"

Because you know
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass

Yeah, it's pretty clear, I ain't no size two
But I can shake it, shake it
Like I'm supposed to do
'Cause I got that boom boom that all the boys chase
And all the right junk in all the right places

I see the magazine workin' that Photoshop
We know that shit ain't real
C'mon now, make it stop
If you got beauty building, just raise 'em up
'Cause every inch of you is perfect
From the bottom to the top

Yeah, my mama she told me don't worry about your size
She says, "Boys like a little more booty to hold at night."
You know I won't be no stick figure silicone Barbie doll
So if that's what you're into then go ahead and move along

Because you know I'm
All about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass
Hey!

I'm bringing booty back
Go ahead and tell them skinny bitches that
No I'm just playing. I know you think you're fat
But I'm here to tell ya
Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top

Yeah my mama she told me don't worry about your size
She says, "Boys like a little more booty to hold at night."
You know I won't be no stick figure silicone Barbie doll
So if that's what you're into then go ahead and move along

Because you know I'm
All about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass

Because you know I'm
All about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass

Because you know I'm
All about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass
'Bout that bass, 'bout that bass
Hey, hey, ooh
You know you like this bass

I am constantly hoping to spread the message of self empowerment so and thrilled to see an artist producing this sort of music. 

All About That Bass is available to pre-order HERE. I NEED this on my phone for my Baby Glitter walks!!

Have you heard it yet? What did you think?

Toodlepip!

  7. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this song! As a "skinny bitch" I was slightly disappointed with the lines that shamed "skinny girls" calling them bitches. Don't get me wrong, this a fab song but putting down another body size regardless of whether it is big or small is wrong, girls should be looking out for each other and not shaming each other for being different.

  8. Humm, I'm not sure. I think the song is skinny-shaming personally- I love you louise and I'm fine with you loving the song, but personally I find it a bit unfair! If there was a song saying the exact opposite it would have started a internet storm. Alternatively, if a song glorifies drugs/smoking/anything else unhealthy it would be a bit of drama...glad you like it though! It's good a good beat.

    2. I agree too! I don't like that it makes the assumption that 'skinny bitches' all think they're fat and want to get skinnier.

      Delete
    3. I agree as well. When listening to the song, rather than reading the lyrics, the way the tempo goes, it feels like they are two separate statements. The 'I know you think your fat' doesn't reference back to the 'skinny bitches' for me.

  9. I do love the song and the message it sends to women. My one issue is that (and i'm possibly misinterpreting the lyrics) if you are considered 'slightly bigger' (by societies standards) that's okay and don't worry because boys like it. Which doesn't sit right with me.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Number 1: the pastel explosion happening in this video makes me so happy! Ha ha!
    Number 2: just because this song might build up confidence for women and girls with a certain body type doesn't mean that it is tramping on those who may have a different body type. Positivity exists without an us versus them attitude. Love this.

  12. I agree with you! To add to your point, there is no such thing as skinny-shaming. Skinny/thin people (despite their own insecurities) are typically viewed as the ideal and therefore have privilege. My beef with the song is the line "Boys like a little more booty to hold at night," because the approval of a boy is NOT my goal. Other than that- slightly annoying good song, with a pretty nice message. Glad you made a post about it!

    1. oohhh my there is so totally a thing called skinny shaming "you look anorexic" "go eat a bigger" "you look like a skeleton" are all such examples of skinny shamping that thinner woman deal with. Zoella has an entire blog post about it actually.

  13. I at first was a little put off by that line as well (although I'm neither skinny nor curvy and instead an awko-taco in-between person), so I looked up the lyrics as well and realized that I had misheard that the following line was part of the previous one. And now when I listen to the song I don't get how I missed it!

  14. OH YOU'RE SOOOOOO RIGHT!;) Each of us girls, no matter whether your too thin, too thick, no matter whether dark or light skin toned, no matter from where - each of us is a unique person, a special person with BIG DREAMS! Which NEEDS to be fullfilled NO MATTER HOW YOU LOOK LIKE! BE & STAY YOURSELF!

You've been such a positive example of just embracing your beauty & body no matter the size and I think it's something you should be really proud of. I love the colours in the video too, they're so very Louise. :)

  21. I like the song in terms of its sound. It's catchy and everything.
    but I can't help but find it disappointing when women refer to other women negatively.
    and I'm not a fan of the line "I know you think you're fat".
    I just feel like it was a little unnecessary.

  31. I do think that what Meghan is trying to do is admirable, but even when reading the lyrics in full it seems like she is putting "skinny" girls down in order to empower bigger/curvy girls, like myself. I appreciate that everyone deserves to feel beautiful, but Meghan isn't promoting that: she's basically saying that "bigger is better" and that being skinny is wrong - whereas if a skinny girl made a song saying negative things about us big or curvy girls, there would be uproar. It's not really promoting equality, although it is a catchy tune. Xx

  32. my only thing with this song is that people are touting it to be a feminist anthem when it isn't. Meghan has said herself that she is not a feminist (though I imagine she means in the incorrect man hating way not the actual equality way). Body image and feminism aren't related so it bothers me when people say so. It is such a catchy song though!

  34. i donno… im not a fan of the song. I also don't think it's empowering at all… it essentially says its okay to be whatever size you are because guys like girls in all sizes. why are we always comparing our bodies based on what boys like? sorry i don't like it, i think its an annoying song that is trying to be meaningful but is just full of the same stereotypes.

  40. 'Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top' I can't say that I've heard a song promote this before without having a figure in mind! We need to spread this message to the world Louisse! So many people have body 'issues' because of society's portrayal of 'perfect'.

    As a happy size 10 I'm always feeling that I should be a dress size lower, and after weighing myself a boots I was horrified to hear it tell me I could be 2 stone lighter and still be a healthy weight, I'm 5ft4!

    You are a role model Louise and don't let anyone who says otherwise bring you down!

    I also loved the colours in this video :)

  56. I do think this song is very catchy and find myself singing along but I don't like the 'skinny bitches' reference. It's an ugly, negative term for any woman to call other women and when covered up with the lyric about her just teasing sounds even worse. Like when someone says something unpleasant about you and then tries to turn it into a joke. I say this as someone who is not skinny either!

  58. Awful song. So what if boys like more booty?! This is an awful message to send out to girls that we should have a body that guys approve of. Also it might be bigging up those skinny bitches, but it still calls us plastic barbie dolls hhmmm. This song still puts people down, and makes it seem like girls are just there for boys to look at. Disappointed that you posted this to be honest.

    1. I agree. Women shouldn't have to put others down in order to feel good about themselves. Surely, calling naturally slim girls "skinny bitches" and "barbie dolls" is the same as calling curvier women "fat"? I have to agree with Louise's friend on this one!

  64. I completely understand why you are frustrated that your friend did not understand the song fully, as the song does specifically say "every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top". I completely agree with that line.
    However (hear me out!), I do not agree with the line "Boys like a little more booty to hold at night". Isn't that just the same as saying "Feel free to love your body because you are perfect! ...as long as boys like your body shape".
    I do agree with the main aim of the song, it's just that one line that really gets me. I understand what Meghan Trainor intended her song to be about, and yes, most of it is incredibly empowering. I also love the fact that he is helping her fans to feel better about the way they look.

  73. I love the 'I know you think you're fat' line. Man, so true. Perception is such a head-messer-upperer (not a word, but whatever lol) I've worn between a size 6 (current) and 12 (past) in AU sizes & I don't see much difference in either. I'm still the same person, same shape, same insecurities, it's just that at one size my thighs don't touch and at another they do, but I don't actually SEE any difference because I'm caught up in how I FEEL, which has nothing to do with the tags on my clothing.

    I feel like these lyrics are slightly demeaning to slimmer women and sort of contradict the earlier message which you mentioned. I appreciate that she is trying to empower 'bigger' women, which in theory this is a great idea for a song (especially as slim women are usually more celebrated in the music industry). But I think promoting the fact that either body type is attractive, rather than professing that 'bigger is better', would have been a bit of a nicer message.

    This is just my take on the song but I appreciate yours may differ Louise! Just thought I'd add to the discussion :)

  89. I highly dislike this song. The video doesn't even feature a fat person, at best "curvy". How can one sing about how fat people should feel good about themselves if they wouldn't even include fat people in this video? (the black kid is more a prop, which is also an issue) And speaking as a fat person here, I don't think we need to bring down other women in order to feel good about ourselves.

    Jenny Trout has a very good write-up about this topic, titled "I Am Not All About That Bass". If you're interested you can read it here, because she sure as hell articulate it better than I ever would: http://jennytrout.com/?p=7857

  92. Commenting again to add: I highly disagree on the song being a message of empowerment. The line "Boys like a little more booty to hold at night" is perhaps the one I'd pick on the most, because how the hell are you supposed to be empowere by putting your self worth on whether other people (boys, in this case) find you attractive or not? Not to mention it's highly heteronormative -- What if I like girls? What if I'm asexual? Should I not feel good about my fat booty then?

    ReplyDelete
  93. I made a post regarding the song the same day as Louise!
    I think it's a fun song and if someone is getting that offended over it they are being pretty over sensitive.
    Meghan Trainor wrote the song to make HERSELF feel good- she didn't write it for every female in the world.
    Commenting as a size 2 I think the song is fab and does not hurt my feelings because that would be silly.

  94. I like the song. I think that people who get offended about the "skinny bitches" line should get over it. It's clearly meant to be a fun song that empowers women who are concerned about their size.

    It might not be right, but thin is considered the "ideal size" in culture. I don't think there's anything wrong with presenting the other side of the argument. The fact is that different people find different things attractive. And I don't think this song is shaming thin people... the "silicone Barbie doll" line to me means she's not going to be fake just to be thin. She's just going to be herself.

    But people will get upset over anything.

  95. It's a great song and it empowers other girls who have got some weight but it suddenly reminded me of Anaconda with that "Skinny bitches" thing .. Can you please for god's sake leave the effen skinny girls alone ?? have you ever heard in a song "Fat bitches" ?? It's too fucking annoying
    People need to stop empowering some certain type of women by letting the other type down
    And again, it lost it's purpose by saying "the boys" and indicating what boys like .. It's like she's trying to tell girls "as long as boys are happy then you're beautiful" it's bullshit to me

  100. The overall message of this song is great, but that doesn't mean it doesn't have any serious issues.
    As someone who has spent much of her life being pretty darn skinny, I have to say that it doesn't make me feel very good to hear the "skinny bitches" line. And then for it to be followed with "I'm just kidding, I know you think you're fat" makes it even worse. Some skinny people feel very insecure about their skinny bodies--it's very possible to feel too skinny! I've been teased on countless occasions about my "chicken legs" among other things. It doesn't feel good. Those lyrics, to me, sound like "Hey, skinny bitch, I know you think you're fat, but you're perfect. :)" ...and it makes me uneasy that some are failing to see how this can worsen insecurities in some people.

    1. I completely agree. I don't see how she can say that everyone is beautiful but then turn right around and say such terrible things about skinnier girls, its pretty much as bad as making fun of larger girls. I'm glad that the larger/curvier girls can find this song uplifting, but it just isn't fair to the skinnier girls like us. Just like some girls didn't choose to be bigger, we didnt choose to be stick thin and thats not our fault. No matter what size you are, you deserve to feel comfortable with your body and this song just doesn't make us feel that way.

  102. I love this song! It's cool, catchy, different and the message in it is awesome.

    The fact that the media in every sense has really started to embrace every body type makes me very happy - feeling about your presence is a horrible feeling and if a little joyful song can help you realize we are perfect the way we are then I'm a happy girl.

    Lovely post Louise xx

  110. I still think the song can be seen as offence to girls of a smaller size. Even though you talked about the phrase "skinny bitches" in the song, the terminology she used is still offence by calling someone "skinny" a bitch is not nice. It is a stereotype which is wrong, such as as saying fat people are lazy or fat people are sad etc.

    As well the part in the song:

    Yeah, my mama she told me don't worry about your size
    She says, "Boys like a little more booty to hold at night."
    You know I won't be no stick figure silicone Barbie doll.

    Is really again offensive by relating smaller girls to Barbie dolls. I am all about female empowerment and feeling good about your body shape and size, as you long as you are a health size (larger or smaller) but you should never make yourself feel better about your size by tearing down someone on their size. I think that she does this in this song because she is saying there is something wrong with not having curves or a big "booty".

    I think her intentions were good when creating a song making most girls feel more comfortable with the way they are but we have to remember that there are thinner girls who are not comfortable with their size, because they want bigger boobs or a bigger but. We need to support them and encourage them to feel great about their bodies as they have insecurities as well!

    As well we also need to remember that sometimes your size is not always healthy, whether you are smaller or larger. This song could also be seen as encouraging people who need to go get healthy and have a better diet not to, which is bad for their health and could results in server problems. These are just my thoughts on the song. I am probably overthinking the lyrics but as someone who is on the smaller side I was offending at someone the phrases and terminology, as I am by tumblr posts promoting the same thing by tearing down the girl who wears a size six. I don't think it is fair.

    I think the most important thing though is to embrace your body shape and dress in what you feel comfortable because when you are happy other people will want to around you! But after having friends who have gone into hospital because of there body size by aware on whether or not you are going to far of the scale and damaging your health.

    Hope my comments don't offend anyone and if you think I am wrong please share as I am always hoping to learn from my mistakes. I think this is still a great post Louise and is raising awareness on body image and being comfortable in your own skin

  111. How would people feel if it was the same message being put across about embracing your self and how the media has messed up our body image but instead of "skinny bitches" they put "fat bitches". Do you think people would still try and stick up for the song?

  112. I love this, it is nice to see a artist not stripping down showing there perfect butt, perfect waist and boobs constantly having it jiggled in our faces. It leaves so many young woman doubting there bodies and hating themselves. I love the fact she is empowering girls that it is ok to have curves and be themselves and that there stunning, I wish more artists did this!!!

    Need lashes which will be as long and full as you want without the horrible cost that goes with them? check out the link below and look for our next competition!

  113. I really love this song and the lyrics definitely send out a good message. People keep hating on the way she says "skinny bitches" but I reckon that bigger sized people have more insecurities than those skinnier, and overall it's still a good message. The song says that you're beautiful from the bottom to the top, and that's how it should be.

    1. Personally, I do not think that is true. Considering I am quite small and I have many insecurities, especially about my legs which one girl said where so skinny she could snap them like twigs. I mean this in a kind way but I do not think it is fair to say that "skinny bitches" have less insecurities because that is not true. We get picked on just as much and ridiculed in the media, especially in social media as well. I think the song send out a wonderful message about loving yourself from head to toe but it is important to remember the other perspective as well. I do not mean any hate but I just could not let it go unsaid.

  115. I think the 'stick-figure silicone barbie doll' bit is just as insulting to be honest. I totally get and respect you, Louise... but I definitely feel this song has mixed messages; some right, some wrong.
    The girl is learning; Meghan was shown in an interview to say that she 'never had the strength to have an eating disorder'. That and some of the lines about men loving curves so you should too is a bit off to me, it is generalising and suggests that without curves, you won't be seen romantically. Kind of insulting, in my opinion. She isn't someone to properly look up to; though we can be inspired by some of her message, some of it is just harmful to take as fact. I just feel that if people have been offended by this song, and so many, that there is enough reason to be and that isn't something we should try to 'correct'.. it is how they feel and I respect that. Keep fighting the good fight, Louise! <3
