Meghan Trainor Says She's Surprised By 'Dear Future Husband' Backlash

Meghan says she was just writing a letter to her man-to-be.

When Meghan Trainor released her video for the doo-wop throwback track "Dear Future Husband," she wasn't expecting the firestorm that erupted surrounding the video's subject matter.

While the lyrics to the track suggest that Meghan -- a big supporter of self-confidence and positive body image -- is outlining exactly what her guy needs to know and do to be her "one and only all my life," the video depicts Meghan going back to the 1950s, scrubbing floors and working hard in the kitchen.


Those images sparked quite the backlash, with many calling the clip anti-feminist. MTV News had a chance to catch up with Meghan at her FULLBEAUTY Brands event, where she's a fashion partner and will help their “commitment to promoting, inspiring and empowering all women." Trainor said she was surprised by the controversy surrounding the third single off her album, Title.

"Just surprised the random places people are asking me if I was being sexist," Meghan told MTV News. "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 has a busy few months ahead of her as she finishes up her That Bass Tour overseas before heading back to the U.S. for the MTrain Tour, which kicks off July 3 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. But even with a jam-packed schedule, don't expect the "All About That Bass" singer to stop working on new music.

"I haven't officially started, but I've got a few tunes from the back pile. My old music, I'm just going to bring it up, redo it; I'm getting excited," she said, before adding that she hopes to team up with some new collaborators on future songs.

"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."
