Pop superstar Meghan Trainor is definitely not giving the silent treatment to fragile men who think they can dictate the trajectory of her music career. Syncing her lips to the lyrics of her single “Mother,” Trainor is keeping her message clean and clear — patriarchy is not one to bring her down.

Meghan Trainor Responds to Men Who Think Having a Baby Would End Her Career

In a March 20 post on Instagram, the “Made You Look” singer made a point to cast a response to people who want to control her creative process. Particularly, Trainor was calling out male critics who keep on “mansplaining” her career. Borrowing lyrics from her new single “Mother,” the pop singer was confidently lip syncing the same, making sure her words are felt.

“I wrote this song for all the silly men in the world who have tried to tell me what kind of songs I should write, what career choices I should make, and have talked down to me like I have no idea what I’m doing,” she wrote over the video clip.

Aside from the video, Trainor has given more context to the bashing issue through her caption.

“And that having a baby would end my career🤰😘 #iamyourmother #mother,” she wrote.

Over a week ago, Trainor released her latest studio album Takin’ It Back (Deluxe), consisting of 20 tracks including “Mother.” Alongside the music collection, she gave fans a visualizer of the said single with its official music video.

She is Six Months Pregnant with Her Second Baby

Rocking twin heart ponytails, Trainor recently shared a baby bump update through a series of snaps on Instagram. Currently, the singer is six months pregnant with her second baby with husband Daryl Sabara. Their first born is two-year-old Riley Sabara, who has been attracting a lot of attention recently.

“The zipper almost popped open when I sat with this baby bump, but it was too cute not to wear. Love this look so much,” she wrote.

Trainor is also busy serving as judge in Australian Idol. Nonetheless, despite professional commitments, that doesn’t prevent her from being a hands-on mom. For the “All About That Bass” hitmaker, having to nurture a family while pursuing her career is a “blessing” and a “dream.”

Meanwhile, aside from Takin’ It Back, the pop singer will also be debuting her first book, Dear Future Mama. The same is set to hit stores on April 25.

The song is rather pathetic. In using gay slang she convoluted any message. Besides, man bashing is ridiculous. Women complain about the lack of real men then go on to bash what remains if the gender in the guise of “soy boys”. God help this woman’s children.
