Lady Gaga calls Taylor Swift ‘brave’ for speaking out about eating disorder in new clip

Lady Gaga has praised Taylor Swift for opening up about her eating disorder in a resurfaced clip from the 2020 documentary, American lady.

Earlier this week, the “Born This Way” singer reacted to a TikTok video that featured Swift opening up about her past eating disorder and body image issues. In the clip from the Netflix documentary, which was released in January 2020, Swift speaks publicly for the first time about suffering from an eating disorder early in her career.

“I don’t care so much if someone points out that I’ve gained weight, it just makes my life better,” Swift said on the scene. “The fact that I’m a size six instead of a size 00, that wasn’t how my body was supposed to be, I just didn’t understand that at the time. She would have defended him to anyone who said, ‘I’m worried about you.’ I was like, ‘What are you talking about? Of course I eat, it’s perfectly normal, I just exercise a lot. And I exercised a lot, but I didn’t eat.”

Swift continued: “I don’t think you know you’re doing that when you do it gradually. There’s always some beauty standard that you don’t meet, because if you’re skinny enough, then you don’t have that butt that everyone wants. But if you are heavy enough to have a butt, then your stomach is not flat enough. It’s all fucking impossible.”

In response to the video, Lady Gaga took to the comments section to praise Swift.

“That’s really brave all you said, wow,” the gucci house wrote the star, along with a black heart emoji.

The video, which was shared by Taylor Swift’s fan account @angclswift, was captioned: “This scene always breaks my heart.”

Swift previously revealed that she began to feel insecure about her appearance when she broke into the music industry as a teenager.

“I didn’t know if I was going to feel comfortable talking about body image and talking about the things that I’ve been through in terms of how unhealthy it’s been for me: my relationship with food and all of that over the years. “. Swift said during an interview with Variety in 2020. “All I know is my own experience. And my relationship with food was the exact same psychology I applied to everything else in my life: if I got a pat on the head, I registered it as good. If they gave me a punishment, I registered it as bad.

Meanwhile, Lady Gaga has been open about her own experience with an eating disorder. In 2013, the “Bad Romance” singer detailed her battle with “anorexia and bulimia” on her social media site Little Monsters, where she revealed that she’s battled an eating disorder since she was 15 years old.
