Lady Gaga praises Taylor Swift for talking about her eating disorder
Lady Gaga praises Taylor Swift for speaking out about her eating disorder in new clip from 2020 documentary “Miss America.”
“You’re really brave for saying all this 🖤Wow,” the “Bad Romance” singer commented below vibrato video Contains clips from Netflix documentaries.
In the video, Swift opened up about how she “gradually” developed an eating disorder after becoming famous at such a young age.
“I’m very happy with who I am…I don’t care if anyone notices that I’ve gained weight, it’s just something that makes my life better,” she said. “I wear a size 6 instead of a double zero… I mean, that’s not what my body is supposed to look like.”
At her leanest, Swift revealed that she “didn’t eat” and “worked out a lot” in an attempt to conform to beauty standards — which she later realized was “impossible.”
“There’s always some standard of beauty that you’re not up to, because if you’re skinny enough, you don’t have…everyone wants that. But, if you’re so heavy that you come out with a-, you don’t have enough belly Flat. It’s all fucking impossible.
The conversation resonated with Gaga, who also struggles with bulimia and anorexia.
In 2012, the “Born This Way” singer spoke at a conference called “It’s Our Turn” and shared her story after a young girl in the audience revealed she, too, had struggled with an eating disorder .
“I threw up all the time in high school,” Gaga said. “It’s really hard, but you need to talk to someone.”
She continued: “Weight is still a struggle. In every movie I’ve been in, on every magazine cover, they stretch you – they make you perfect. It’s not real life. … About girls, let me say this: The diet wars have to end. Knock it all out. Because it ends up affecting kids your age. It makes girls sick.”
