Los Angeles: Young Meghan Trainor, a known name in the music world, says her inferiority complex about her looks in the past made her feel she could never be a singing star.
Trainor, 21, said she used to feel bad looking at her own pictures during the early stages of her career, reported Us magazine.
"When I saw photos of myself, I would think, I look awful. There's a double chin! I never thought I'd be a pop star. I don't look like Rihanna," she said. Trainor's under confidence about her appearance and pessimism about her future only changed after the release of her smash single, 'All About That Bass' last year.
"This girl came up to me bawling and said, 'You make me feel pretty again. Thank you'. It really resonated with me that this girl was so gorgeous, and she didn't even know it.
"It's a mental thing. Just recently I was thinking, 'I'm confident now, and I look good,' and that's because I've started saying those words out loud more. So now when I see pictures, I'm like, 'Oh my God, why would I hate myself at all? I look incredible in that picture!'" the singer said.
Trainor feels every woman should be confident about herself and believe in her dreams. "I guess the biggest thing that I've learned is, never doubt your dreams. No matter how big your dream is or how ridiculous you think it is, you can't doubt it?you have to believe in it. Because it will happen," she said.
