"The hotness".

That was what American singer-songwriter Meghan Trainor replied, when asked about the one thing she would change about Singapore if she could.

The 21-year-old, who was in town for her That Bass Tour on Thursday night (Apr 23) at Resorts World Sentosa's The Coliseum, also said, "I love Singapore. It's adorable. You guys have the best buildings."

Speaking at a press conference before the concert, Trainor revealed how her songs were all inspired by her own real-life experiences.

The 'All About That Bass' singer, who said that she wrote the viral hit in 45 minutes, realised the power of a three-minute song when fans -- also known as 'Megatrons' -- expressed how they could connect with her work emotionally.

'All About That Bass', like many of Trainor's other works, sends out a message about female empowerment and encourages women to be comfortable with their bodies.

Trainor shared how mothers would come up to her at meet-and-greets to tell her that she saved their daughters' lives. They would say, "You saved her life. She was very suicidal and depressed. She didn’t like how she looked and your song helped her."

One encounter that stuck with Trainor was during a show in Florida, when a father "yelled at her" that, "You saved my daughter's life!"

"That shook me till this day," said Trainor, who added that she is "now more inspired to write more inspiring songs".
