When I chat­ted with Meghan Trainor, I did some­thing I wouldn’t rec­om­mend as an in­ter­view tac­tic: I told her that her new sin­gle “No” is an­noy­ing—an­noy­ingly catchy, I meant! In­stead of hang­ing up on me, she said that it made her glad: “My goal is to an­noy peo­ple!” Trainor laughed, but I think that her re­sponse speaks vol­umes about the artist she is grow­ing into: un­apolo­get­i­cally en­ter­tain­ing and con­fi­dent enough in her (im­mense) gifts to proudly court the ca­reer-mak­ing power of the ear­worm. sarah laing
