Lady Gaga hails Taylor Swift's confession
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Lady Gaga recently sang melodies in the form of supportive words for Taylor Swift. A video of Taylor Swift's 2020 'Miss Americana' documentary, where she shared about her eating disorder, has surfaced on TikTok. Swift opened up about the harsh beauty standards that make artists go to extreme lengths to please the audience.
Gaga commented, "That's really brave everything you said 🖤 wow." The video was shared by a fan account for the 'Midnights' crooner, captioned, "This scene always breaks my heart 💔"
In the 'Miss Americana' Documentary, the topic of eating disorders came up when Swift was traveling in the back of the car. "I don't care as much if somebody points out that I have gained weight, it's just something that makes my life better," she said in the Netflix special. "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 really understand that at the time, I don't really think I knew it."
Swift also shared that she would defend herself against "anybody who said, 'I'm concerned about you.'" She recalled that she would respond, "What are you talking about? Of course I eat, it's perfectly normal, I just exercise a lot." She added, "And I did exercise a lot. But I wasn't eating."
"There's always some standard of beauty that you're not meeting," Swift concluded. "Because, if you're thin enough, then you don't have that ass that everybody wants. But if you have enough weight on you to have an ass, then your stomach isn't flat enough. It's all just f***ing impossible."
Lady Gaga is no stranger to the excruciating rigidity of the industry's beauty standards. She had shared about having an eating disorder on her Little Monsters social media site in 2013, as per Billboard, revealing she dealt with "bulimia and anorexia since I was 15."
"But today I join the BODY REVOLUTION. To Inspire Bravery. and BREED some m*therf***ing COMPASSION," the 'Stupid Love' singer added, with photographs of her yellow underwear set taken from different angles.
