Meghan Trainor reveals 11 things you didn't know about her — and if she'd date a fan!

Meghan Trainor was only 20 when her first hit, "All About That Bass," went to No. 1 in 58 countries. She then went on to win the Grammy for Best New Artist, and from there, the rest is history.

The songstress joined TODAY Friday and shared some super surprising tidbits about her personal life. We've selected our favorites below!

1. She writes every song she records.

And she likes to be seen as a songwriter first and a pop star second.

2. She began writing songs around age 11.

"I thought, all the pop stars were doing it, so I was like, if I'm gonna be a pop star, I gotta start writing now!" she told Hoda. Her first full song was a wedding song about her aunt and uncle getting married to the tune of "Heart and Soul."

3. She's never broken a bone.

But she came close on The Tonight Show on Thursday.
