Meghan Trainor graced the cover of Euphoria. Magazine‘s new issue, and she looks absolutely stunning. In the issue, that is available now, she talks about her new album, ‘Treat Myself’ saying that, “It symbolizes a moment in my life that I had after my second [vocal] surgery, where I kind of crumbled emotionally and physically. My body just kinda gave up on me and I had to remind myself that I can say ‘no’ and that I have to focus on myself and treat myself.”
During the interview, the 24-year-old also opens up about her struggles with anxiety and reveals how Carson Daly helped her get through the difficult time she was going through.
“I couldn’t explain it to my own parents– like, they didn’t understand when I was like ‘my head’s on fire, my back feels like someone has a flame to it’ or ‘I have nausea and I don’t know why’ and it was just ’cause my adrenals were all messed up. Hearing Carson Daly explain exactly how I felt was better than a doctor; it was like ‘Oh, a regular human being who is in the industry feels like I do’ and I told him ‘you don’t know how much that saved me.’”

She also talked about how she wishes to see more women in not only the music industry but in the entertainment industry as well.
“I feel like all women in music right now are slaying but there just needs to be more of us. I would love to see more songwriters. I’m so used to– and I hate that I can say I’m used to– like, when they set me up with a producer: it’s a man, it’s always a man. I recently wrote with a woman and she was a producer, and I just hugged her and I was like ‘you’re the first female producer I’ve ever gotten to work with and I need more of you,’ like, this is so sad. And so I just want to see more of us all over, even in the entertainment industry in general: more directors, more executives.”
Trainor also says that she really looks up to “Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato & Selena Gomez” for “how strong they are and how they can continue their careers and still do this” despite all they have gone through.
