Meghan Trainor says she has learned to embrace her curves after being body-conscious as a youngster. The 21-year-old said she wasn’t always body confident, but now believes “every body type is beautiful,” reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“I think it’s good to have someone with a regular average body on the pop charts. It’s about loving what you got and rocking it,” In Touch Weekly quoted Trainor as saying.

However, Trainor noted that she struggled a lot in high school.

She said: “It was pretty serious. I would sit in class feeling uncomfortable. I regret a lot of those moments and those thoughts that I had in my head. I grew up a chubby girl. I wasn’t outspoken about it and I didn’t approach my parents. I should’ve known how cute I was, and been a lot happier. Now, with my songs, I just hope, I’m reaching out to those young girls who are also sitting there, miserable with their body,” the All About That Bass hitmmaker added.
