Did you happen to see Meghan Trainor on Jimmy Fallon a few weeks ago?
She looked lovely as ever, gave a great performance
and then took a fall as she was wrapping up her performance.
It was awkward, looked slightly painful and then she gracefully laughed it off. Jimmy was funny, laid on the floor with her and then helped her up. I felt bad for her, but she seemed mostly unphased by it. I'm sure that kind of stuff happens all the time - right?
I get embarrassed easily. Hate to mess up publicly and prefer to look like I have my stuff together all the time. I overthink things, over plan things and over do things all in the name of getting it right the first time. I take calculated risks when the odds are in my favor and am hard on myself when I make a mistake. My type A personality is a lot to deal with some days... just ask my husband :) It's not very realistic to think that I'm always going to have it together and I really should take a chill pill in a lot of areas. I'm working on it and am making progress.
So when I saw Meghan Trainor bite it on stage my heart sank for her.
I wished it didn't happen and knew it would be replayed over and over again.
A few days later I saw this article on msn
It address a photo shop faux pas and her performance on Jimmy Fallon.
Click over and read what she had to say -
she talks about photo shop, spanx and her fall.
I was shocked to hear that she had the opportunity to redo the performance and edit out her fall. She opted NOT to edit out her embarrassing moment and instead just laugh at herself. I was surprised and loved her reasoning behind it. I don't know a ton about Ms. Trainor other than that she has catchy songs, pretty makeup and a sassy personality. I like her a little more now that I've seen her confidence come through and the fact that she's is so real. We all make mistakes and fall down and she's fine with the world knowing about it.
I love that! Relax and be real :)
