LeAnn Rimes is “bringing booty back …” so run and tell everybody that!
The Grammy-winning singer has put her signature twang on the song of the summer: the body-acceptance anthem “All About That Bass” by pop newcomer Meghan Trainor .
In case you missed it, 20-year-old Trainor’s single of self-empowerment exploded onto the scene this summer with a hooky, doo-wop vibe and slam-dunk lyrics like “Yeah, it’s pretty clear, I ain’t no size 2, but I can shake it like I’m supposed to do!” and my personal favorite line, “I got that boom boom that all the boys chase — and all the right junk in all the right places.”
How can you not just love Trainor and this absolute delight of a hit? You can’t … and Rimes herself is no exception here.
After an episode of her and husband Eddie Cibrian’s VH1 series LeAnn & Eddie , the singer posted the cover video from a dressing room to her weekly series Songs & Hymns Inspired By Tabloids . Her band and hubby all seem to be having a great time grooving along — Cibrian even provides the percussion with a bag of potato chips.
Sadly, Rimes knows all too well the pressures of being a celebrity. Or heck, just being a woman nowadays in our image-driven society. So much of her not-so-distant tabloid past (and sometimes present) has unfortunately been media scrutiny over her physique.
So it’s fun to see Rimes loving and spreading the message of Trainor’s single … and it was pretty epic for Trainor, too. Rimes tweeted the video , to which Trainor replied via her Twitter account, “So I’m gonna cry. One of my favorite artists covered my song! Thank you, LeAnn Rimes, I love you!”
“All About That Bass” hit No. 1 on iTunes here in the states, as well as Australia and New Zealand, and is currently racing up the Top 10 on the Billboard charts.
