During Drag Race season 9’s musical challenge, singer Meghan Trainor helped judge the "Kardashian: The Musical.” However, many viewers were less than impressed with her appearance on the cult drag competition show.
While many celebrity guests dress to impress, Trainor wore a cozy blue unicorn onesie during her time on the judging panel.

Nearly five years after the episode aired, one of the contestants on the show, Trinity the Tuck, added even more controversy to the story, saying that Trainor stole food from the drag queens.
"Meghan Trainor was to me just like disrespectful, like not, not as in like a diva per se," the All-Stars season 4 winner said in a conversation with The Real House Husbands Podcast. "She just was very blase. And like, didn't seem like she was excited to be there."
Trinity then said that Trainor stole "one of the girls sandwiches on set from catering. She just wanted it. And she's like, 'I'm going to take it,' I don't know if she probably didn't even know it was theirs, but yeah, she took one of their sandwiches that, and one of the girls didn't have their sandwich." The Tuck concludes, "They had to go get their food elsewhere."
Instead, Trinity says Lady Gaga was the one celebrity guest judge who felt like she was having a “genuine conversation with.”
“She was there to really help us through this competition,” Trinity told the Australian podcast.
While fans debated over the situation online, Trainor took some time to speak on her side of the story.
"Lmao…why," she wrote alongside some emojis. "didn’t eat anyones sandwhich hahahaha i promise."
The “All About That Bass” singer then went on to apologize for her attire during filming, writing, “Also never meant to disrespect anyone. I was in the middle of my tour and had zero time to do a fitting and get an outfit and asked the show i could wear my unicorn onesie lol and they said yes. So sorry.”
