MEGHAN TRAINOR WROTE THE SONG "MOTHER" AS A RESPONSE TO MEN SAYING STARTING A FAMILY WOULD PUT AN END TO HER CAREER
After being told by certain men that having a child would ruin her career and receiving condescending comments about her work and life choices, Meghan Trainor wrote the song "Mother." In a video posted on Instagram, the singer lip-synced to her new hit and expressed her frustration with the attitudes of these men. She also shared a blowing-kiss emoji and explained that they had told her that having a baby would end her career.
Meghan has recently spoken out about the difficult decision women feel they have to make between starting a family and pursuing their careers. On the Best Advice podcast, she encouraged those who want to have children not to be deterred by concerns about their careers, explaining that having a baby can actually bring luck and make everything work out.
Meghan, who already has a one-year-old daughter named Riley with her husband Daryl Sabara, is currently expecting her second child, due in July.

On Thursday, the singer of "Anti-Hero" announced on Instagram that in honor of her upcoming Eras Tour, she will be releasing four never-before-heard songs. These songs are scheduled to debut at midnight and include "Eyes Open (Taylor's Version)," "Safe & Sound (Taylor's Version)" featuring Joy William and John Boy Music, "If This Was a Movie (Taylor's Version)," and "All of the Girls You Loved Before."
It appears that three of the four songs are remastered versions, as they have the "(Taylor's Version)" tag in their titles. This is due to Swift's previous label, Big Machine, selling the master recordings of her music catalog in 2019, leading the artist to record new versions of her previous albums. Swift has already released "Fearless (Taylor's Version)" and "Red (Taylor's Version)" in 2021.
One of the tracks, "If This Was a Movie," was originally featured on a deluxe version of her 2010 album "Speak Now." Swift is known for hiding Easter eggs in her music, videos, and social media, leading fans to speculate that "Speak Now" may be the next album she plans to release.
"Eyes Open" is from "The Hunger Games: Songs from District 12 and Beyond" soundtrack, which was a companion album for the 2012 film "The Hunger Games." The song was not included in the film but was on the soundtrack along with "Safe & Sound."
Finally, "All of the Girls You Loved Before" is a previously unreleased track that was recorded during Swift's "Lovers" era in 2019.
Swift's Eras Tour, which fans have been eagerly anticipating, will begin in Glendale, Arizona, on March 18th, marking her first tour in five years.
