Meghan Trainor Backlash: ‘Dear Future Husband’ Video Leads To Sexist Tag For Meghan Trainor, She Responds

April 7, 2015 | By Garrett Montgomery More

A Meghan Trainor backlash is making headlines. Singer and songwriter Meghan Trainor is facing a backlash over the music video for her new single “Dear Future Husband,” where she plays a woman from the 1950s who cleans and cooks for the love of her life. Meghan Trainor, who has been slammed for being anti-feminist, claimed that she was shocked by the controversy.

Meghan Trainor Dear Future Husband

A Meghan Trainor backlash has surprised even the singer. Last month, Trainor debuted the music video for the single entitled “Dear Future Husband.”

The song, which was written by Trainor in collaboration with Kevin Kadish, is featured on Title, the singer’s debut album.

In the music video, which was put together by Fatima Robinson, who previously directed the funny clip for “All About That Bass,” Meghan Trainor plays a woman from the 1950s who cleans and cooks while singing about never “learning to cook.” In the song, Trainor also says that she “can write a hook,” but she is “too busy to make pies.”

The clip, which has over 19 million views on YouTube, is creating drama. Meghan Trainor was slammed for being an anti-feminist. Via social media, one person warned:

“The positive message in All About That Bass is gone, stay away from Dear Future Husband, it’s offensive.”

Another added:

“Does Meghan Trainor want us back in the kitchen or something, did she get the memo from Hilary Clinton, who is too busy to bake pies.”

In a new interview with MTV, Meghan Trainor tackled the backlash by saying that she was surprised. The “Lips Are Movin” artist said:

“Just surprised the random places people are asking me if I was being sexist.”

Trainor went on to say that she is not sexist or anti-feminist, au contraire, she wanted the sassy song to make a statement that women should be treated better, cared for by their partners. The diva explained:

“But no, I don’t believe I was. I think I was just writing my song to my future husband out there, wherever he is. He’s chilling right now, taking a minute getting ready for me; it’s going to be great.”

Meghan Trainor has already moved on from the so-called backlash and is focusing on her upcoming MTrain Tour, which will launch on July 3 in New Jersey, and she is hard at work on her sophomore album. Trainor might have few duets on the upcoming project. She revealed:

“So far I’ve been on the road and I got a lot of great people reaching out to us saying, ‘We want to write with her for her next album,’ but I’m gone, I’m overseas. When I come back, though, wait for me.”

What are your thoughts on the Meghan Trainor backlash?

    The entire argument is silly. She’s great.

    These people have got to be kidding! This young woman has nothing to apologize for. I am a 56 year old man and I thought the song was hysterical. I guess the people in our society can’t help being stupid over things. When are they going to grow up and get a grip? Shame on you, there are things far more important to complain and do something about than complaining about this song.

  3. Diane says:

    She’s adorable, that’s her style…leave her alone.

  4. Kristina says:

    I love Meghan Trainor. I think she sends a positive message to girls about honoring themselves, and this song, and video, is no different. People just love to bitch over nothing. She’s a good girl sending a great, self loving message, so someone has to throw a fit over something, no matter how silly or ridiculous the argument is.

  5. Rachel says:

    I didn’t get a sexist vibe at all. In fact, if it were anti-feminist, she’d be fixing the gourmet meals and NOT burning the pies. People are too touchy. My husband does all of the cooking and I do the majority of the yard work. That’s how we do. I’m not going to hate on the woman who is gifted in the kitchen and prefers to be at home. It takes all kinds. Trainor has performed a catchy song that basically says to “treat her like a lady, tell her she’s beautiful, and that everything’s going to be alright.” Sounds pretty universal to me.

    the feminazis are at it again, i see.

    These hardcore “feminists” are ridiculous. Not only do they always have to find something bad in everything about women, their arguments are without actual knowledge. Feminists, ACTUAL feminists, fight for the right for women to be equal. For the right for us to be able to do what we want without being judged. If I want to be a housewife, I’ll be a damned housewife. It’s not oppressive or sexist unless you make it that way! I, for one, want the white picket fence and the lovely suburban home. I’d love to stay home with my children. If that is what I, or Meghan, want, then the right kind of feminist would say that we should be allowed to! Wanting to take care of a home and kids and learn how to cook doesn’t make me an oppressed woman. I have heard the worst arguments from “feminists” and it just makes me hate my gender. These fake feminists are making my whole gender look stupid! GET OVER IT, GIRLS! IT’S A DAMN SONG! Don’t like it? Don’t listen!
