On her hit song All About That Bass:
When I wrote it, the words flew out of my mouth—I had the lyrics down in about 45 minutes. I hope the song helps girls love themselves more, because they’re adorable. Women too. We should all have a big banner, or maybe a neon sign, in our bedrooms: Every inch of you is perfect.
On how she was the thicker one among her friends:
I grew up on Nantucket, in Massachusetts, and played football in school. My crowd was all the skinny, beautiful, popular girls and I was their, like, thicker friend. This one dude I was in love with told me in seventh grade, ‘You’d be so much hotter if you were 10 pounds lighter.’ It crushed me.
