Meghan Trainor"s body-positivity anthem "All around That Bass" is No. 1 ~ above Billboard for the 3rd week in a row. Anyone in the country, that seems, is completely on board v the song"s message and its fun, repetitive hook. Everybody, the is, other than for listeners of adult contemporary or family members radio stations.

As Billboard revealed, these stations, in fact, have so neutered the song"s lyrics the they"ve completely destroyed that is empowering message. The safe variation of "All around That Bass" sends a an easy message come kids: also if it isn"t OK to talk around your body if you"re contempt larger, you"re quiet beautiful on the inside.


There will be absolutely no shiver of anything because that anyone listening on Radio Disney. What"s worse, though, is Radio Disney"s an option to modify all the human body positivity parts out that the fairly clean song, rendering it nearly unrecognizable in ton and, frankly, way dumber.

Trainor"s lines celebrating her voluptuous curves — "I got that boom-boom the all the boys follow / and also all the ideal junk, in all the ideal places" — have actually been smoothed the end to this insecure nonsense: "I gained them smooth moves, lock say ns look great. Yeah, I"ll it is in the star on all them huge stages."

The subversive beauty standard protest "Yeah, it"s pretty clear, i ain"t no size two / yet I can shake it, shake it, favor I"m an alleged to do," is currently the baseless and also confusing "But Imma do it, make it, choose I"m an alleged to do."

Even the song"s most spicy — and also truthful — insight, "Yeah, mine mama, she said me, "Don"t worry about your size" / She says, "Boys choose a little more booty to host at night."" currently comes off as the demeaning: "She says, "Boys favor the girls for the beauty they hold inside."" due to the fact that it isn"t all around that bass — in reality you have the right to be ugly, however your beauty, beauty is just on the inside in that case.

This is not the very first song that has actually suffered the Radio Disney sanitizing treatment, but their standards are slightly suspect. Radio Disney neglected to cut any of the lines that clearly reference Becky G"s human body in "Can’t get Enough" — "The music acquisition me higher / relocating my body" and also "Fired increase too hot to touch ow" survived the cleansing — the channel likewise left alone every the intense lines from Ella Henderson"s "Ghost": "I let friend under my skin / "Cause i love living in the sin." Trainor"s body speak is tame compared to this mentions.


It"s a difficulty not for this reason much because it"s bad, but since a powerful song has been censored of its socially conscious meaning. "All about That Bass" hitting No. 1 is a minute we can all it is in proud of. But it i do not care meaningless when you change the body-conscious message with one around inner beauty. Trainor to know she"s beautiful top top the inside: You have the right to hear that in the confidence, spunk and attitude v which she it is provided every line. It"s yes, really nothing much less than an humiliation to call a Trainor fan "Don"t worry, you"re beautiful ~ above the inside!"

The track is supposed to shot and assist girls feeling comfortable sharing the inner beauty v a world that discriminates against bodies the aren"t Ariana Grande-slim. Radio Disney"s edit is simply one much more reminder the that"s something we all hear as well infrequently.
