Megan Moroney had the absolute best response when a TikTok user recently criticized her stagewear. 

Showcasing her unapologetic confidence, Moroney clapped back at the TikToker who questioned, “why does she wear 3 yr old pageant clothes?” 

In response to the negativity, the Georgia native shut down the criticism by quoting her current single, “I’m Not Pretty” and giving the unnamed troll a double middle finger. In the caption, the rising singer/songwriter declared, “if I was a 3 year old at a pageant u know id win that bish 💅🏼👑🖕🏼.” 

The video was set to the tune of “I’m Not Pretty,” specifically the verse, “Girl, let me guess, you don’t like how I dress/ And you’re hating on the way I talk (bless your heart).”

Fans were quick to stand up for Moroney in the comments section, begging her to “never change” her outfits and encouraging her to “never listen to the haters.” 

“She literally wrote a song about this hahaha,” one user pointed out. 

The Story Behind “I’m Not Pretty”

“I’m Not Pretty” was written by the chart-topping artist alongside Ben Williams, Micah Carpenter, and Mackenzie Carpenter.  

“It’s a mostly true story (you can find the spring break throwback pic on my Instagram) but not meant to be taken too seriously,” Moroney previously explained of the song.

She later added, “I think everyone can relate to somebody keeping tabs on them on social media. It was fun to write and it’s fun to sing and hopefully will become an anthem for the girls.”

Music Video

The 26-year-old brought the song to life in a music video where she plays dual roles. Moroney co-directed the clip with Jeff Johnson. 

“When I write songs, I can just see a whole movie in my head, especially one like that,” she told Country Now and other media outlets during her recent No.1 party celebrating “Tennessee Orange.” 

Moroney went on to explain that she wanted the music video to convey what happens when there are “mean people on the internet.” They decided to have the brunettes in the video portray the mean girls and the blondes play the role of the nice ones.

“It’s just really petty and it’s like the brunettes that are being mean, they are burning their cakes and all the things and the blondes open their oven and a perfectly iced cake comes out because that’s what happens when you mind your own business,” she pointed out. 

She continued, “it obviously it wasn’t supposed to be blondes versus brunettes, but I think we just did that so it was a clear difference of these people are being mean and they’re using all their energy, tearing others down, and they’re having a hard time in life and the blondes who are minding their own business and are actually nice to each other have all this good stuff happen.” 

Climbing The Charts Now

“I’m Not Pretty” is climbing the charts at country radio, and recently cracked the Top 30 this week. The song is featured on Megan Moroney’s debut album, LUCKY, which arrived in the spring.
