Meghan Trainor: I haven’t kissed in forever

Meghan Trainor thinks the right guy will be “worth the wait”.

Meghan Trainor hasn’t kissed a boy “in forever”.

The 21-year-old singer has had an immense rise to fame in the last year following the release of her debut smash hit All About That Bass. But while her music career is going from strength to strength, her love life has fallen by the wayside.

“I haven’t kissed a boy in forever," she told Seventeen magazine. “I keep telling myself that the right guy is going to be worth the wait. When I find the one, it’s going to be like, ‘Damn, that’s why you took so long! ‘Cause you’re awesome!’”

It had been rumoured that the singer was dating Nick Jonas’ assistant Cory Andersen after a picture of him kissing her on the cheek appeared online earlier this year. However Meghan went on to deny any reports of a romance, claiming it is purely platonic.

“He’s a good friend,” she told Entertainment Tonight. "He’s great, he’s cool. I’d love to have a boyfriend. A boyfriend sounds great!”

The blonde beauty strikes her best pose on the cover of the magazine. But while she oozes self-confidence now in both her songs and her photoshoots, she admits that it wasn’t always the case.

“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," she added to Seventeen, “I don’t look like Rihanna. [But] 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!’”
