The "All About That Bass" singer has been making headlines for her chart-topping and super-catchy tune. Many people believe the song sends out a very positive message about body image. However, while Trainor is happy with her size and was trying to reiterate that during an interview with Entertainment Tonight, her comments were actually offensive.

Speaking about her weight in the past, Trainor told the outlet, "I did have this one boy come up to me, who, like, I loved him, I was so in love. And he told me, 'You'd be like real hot if you were 10 pounds lighter,'" she said. "I was like, 'Ugh, that's it! I am going to cry all day and not eat for the rest of the day.'"

Trainor went on to say that she could never have an eating disorder because she didn't have the "strength."

"I wasn't strong enough to have an eating disorder," she said. "I tried to go anorexic for a good three hours. I ate ice and celery, but that's not even anorexic. And I quit. I was like, 'Ma, can you make me a sandwich? Like, immediately.'"

Lovato's recent tweets, in which she seems to take aim at Trainor's insensitive comments, remind the world that it's not fun to joke about a serious disease.

Referring to Trainor's comment that eating disorders take strength, the former Disney star explained that this couldn't be further from the truth because strength is when you are "able to overcome your demons."
