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!"
Oh yeah, Trainor is a big Rimes fan. She's hip to country. Did we mention the pop-wunderkind is a Nashville songwriter and producer who's penned songs for Rascal Flatts and Hunter Hayes?
"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.
