Meghan Trainor: Just Kidding, I’m Totally Going To Vote!!!
Meghan Trainor: Is now totally going to vote!!!
In a July 14 Billboard cover story, the "Me Too" singer said that while she had a vested interested in policies surrounding gun control and LGBT rights, she hasn't made an effort to keep up with news surrounding the 2016 Presidential race enough to forge a definite political identity.
"I should be way more aware, and if it was [Clinton] or Trump, I'd definitely vote for her," Trainor noted. "But I've never voted and I don't have any desire to."
Sounds clear enough, but Meg has since insisted to Entertainment Tonight the quote was taken out of context. ET caught up with Trainor backstage at a Seattle stop on the Untouchable tour (in a stars-and-stripes onesie, no less), and the M-train was suddenly headed in a different direction.
"I wanted to learn more about both parties and it's one of the biggest elections of all time," she said. "It's such a big deal and I figured it out, and I am ready. I'm ready to vote."

Trainor also got swarmed inside Cheesecake Factory even though she thought she wouldn't!!! Can't a girl just enjoy her Factory Burger on sourdough in peace?!
Glad to hear Trainor's getting political? Share your thoughts on Meg's quotes on voting in the comments.
