Meghan Trainor Was 'Not In a Happy Place' For 'All About That Bass'

(Radio.com) Megan Trainor is back with her new single and anthem "No Excuses" and along with it a fun Zumba-themed video. But it was back in 2014, when Trainor was singing the inspirational lyrics to her break out hit "All About That Bass," she says the words didn't necessarily describe how she was feeling at that very moment.

Trainor explained to Fresh 102.7's Karen Carson that she "was not in a happy place" with herself at the time and "even when I was promoting self love" she wasn't treating herself the way she knew she should — and the way she does now.

"I'm working on it every day," Trainor admits. The "No Excuses" explains how simple lifestyle changes have made such a big impact, plus, one of the ways she's tackling her new life goals is through a buddy system with fiance Daryl Sabara.

"We work out together every single day," says Trainor. "We try to eat, no sugar and no carbs. It's a lifestyle, I'm not dieting, I feel better and mentally my anxiety was gone when I began treating my self better. I look good and happy and you can see the difference. You can look at yourself and I believe it. Compliment yourself out loud, that helps a lot." Read more here.

More recently, Dimmock was devastated with the news that she has stage four ovarian cancer. "Every time I cry, my little boy starts singing Ed Sheeran's 'Perfect' to me, and I've joked with him and I said, 'Well, if you learn all the words, maybe Ed will come round for a cup of tea," Dimmock shared to BBC. "And you know, didn't think he'd take it seriously. But yeah he did and he just sat there with his iPad and he was constantly learning, and every time I cry he sings it to me."

Upon hearing of Dimmock's story, Sheeran took the time to send her a warm video message. "Hey Kelly, Ed Here," Sheeran says in the clip. "I'm in Perth in the moment but I just heard your story and I'm just sending you a message wishing you lots of love. I hope this makes you smile." See Ed's message here.

Katy Perry Reunites With Childhood Friend On 'Kimmel'

(Radio.com) Katy Perry's career has gone through many iterations. First, she was One of the Boys before Teenage Dream went global. She's played the Super Bowl halftime show, and live streamed her life for days on end.

But before Witness or Prism, the pop star was a sixth grader at the Christian school with a "mischievous" side and a best friend: Ahnika Michealsen-Johnson.

Earlier this week (March 5), Katy appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and the host (fresh off his Oscars gig) invited Ahnika to reminisce with Katy about their middle school experiences. At first, Katy had a hard time remembering Ahnika and called her "Erica," but sixth grade was a long time ago. Watch Katy and Ahnika's reunion here.

T-Pain Remixes Cardi B's 'Bartier Cardi'

(Radio.com) Few artists sound more of-the-moment than Cardi B, whose signature flow made "Bodak Yellow" and Bruno Mars' "Finesse" remix international hits.

In December, Cardi kept the party rolling with "Bartier Cardi," providing further evidence that the it-girl MC is here to stay. Now, T-Pain has dropped a remix (or rather, a "T-Mix") of "Bartier Cardi" that dials up the raunch factor and includes his signature hype lines.

T-Pain has been making Autotune great again since the mid-2000s, so old-school meets new-school on the T-Mix. Early in his opening verse, T-Pain shouts out to Cardi's fiance, Offset -- another recent collaborator. Listen to the T-Mix of "Bartier Cardi," here.
