Meghan Trainor is taking her entire family to the Grammy Awards.

The 21-year-old singer, who is nominated for two awards at the upcoming ceremony in Los Angeles on February 8, admits she always dreamed of going to the star-studded event and her dad, in particular, cannot wait to attend the spectacle.

The 21-year-old star told PEOPLE magazine: "Last year I was watching the Grammys from home and hoping that one day I would be there, and now I'm nominated for two awards [Song and Record of the Year]!"

Asked if she plans to bring a date to the awards, she said: "I'm bringing my family, and my dad will be smiling for ear to ear!"

Despite shooting to fame after her single 'All About That Bass' topped the charts around the world, the blonde beauty recently admitted her success has had a negative impact on her love life.

When asked if she has received more male attention since rising to fame, she quipped: "No, less! They're intimidated and terrified and I look amazing nowadays so I don't know what's going on."

But she has set her sights on dating a "trust fund boy" because she needs to go out with someone who is able to fund their own travel expenses.

She joked: "My mom wants me to date a pop star as they'll understand what my life is like.

"The [record] label doesn't pay for my mom to travel with me. My mom's a hard worker; she's a jeweller, so she can't afford to come out here.

"I need a trust fund boy who doesn't need a job because he's rich and can stay by my side and who can be like, 'No baby, I'm here, we're good, I can afford this!"
