Trainor speaks about All About That Bass, which has received 1.7 million views on YouTube. When asked if she has always had a positive attitude about her own body image:
No, no, not at all. I didn’t know how cool I was until just recently. I wish I knew how cool I was in high school, you know? And I see my little cousins — now they have Instagram at 13. I didn’t have Instagram, but I’m pretty sure I would have been more confused about everything if I did at that age. I wrote it to help me as well. And it has helped me because people have been complimenting me like, ‘Man, you look good in that video!’ and I’m like, ‘Yeah I do!’ If I help other people that’s just another dream come true.
