When first hearing Meghan Trainor and Gotti’s collaboration on “Better,” one might have expected it to be accompanied by a sad music video about a relationship in turmoil. Well, Meghan’s new video for the song is about a relationship, but not the kind anyone were picturing.
Instead of saying she deserves better from a partner in a romantic relationship, Trainor is singing about her troubled alcoholic pill-popping grandfather, played by Emmy award-winning actor, Beau Bridges, in the video.
Last night, Trainor posted a snippet of the music video and thanked Bridges and Gotti for making her “music video dreams come true.”
She thanked Beau again in a separate snippet featuring just him, and called the actor a “legend” in her caption.
Watch Trainor show off her acting skills in the gritty music video below.
