Meghan Trainor’s Bizarre Album Press Release Made My Eyes Pop All the Way Out of My Skull
I was recently just minding my own business when I logged onto Twitter and saw that Meghan Trainor was trending. I wondered, "Maybe she dropped a new song that people are talking about." I also thought perhaps she and husband Daryl Sabara made some sort of special announcement. But nope. I quickly realised that's not at all why Trainor was trending, and I was far from prepared to find out the real reason why Twitter sphere was buzzing about the artist.
Turns out, it had less to do with the actual singer and more to do with Epic Records's press release for her latest album, The Love Train. A user shared screenshots of the emailed release, and it's, uh, wild. Between describing the "hot newlywed sex" Trainor sings about one of her songs and legitimately including the phrase "smashing bae's junk to smithereens" (an expression — let's not forget — that was actually popularized by the entertainment site Bossip), people are truly taken aback by the erotic email.
At one point, the release even says, "We know, it's a little bit #Vomworthy, but also, am I chopping onions right now or are those tears rolling down my face? I'm not crying, you're crying." Look, I can't make this up. I don't know whether to keep laughing (like I have been the past 20 minutes) and commend whoever wrote this for their passion or smash my phone "to smithereens" to keep from ever having to come across anything like that again. While I decide which one to do, check out some of the most hilarious reactions to the insane email! And — if you really want to — you can read the full press release here.
