Lady Gaga gave kind words to Taylor Swift after she came across a surfaced excerpt from her 2020 documentary Miss Americana on TikTok.
The Poker Face hitmaker, 36, called her fellow singer, 33, “really brave” for speaking vulgarly about a past eating disorder.
In the social media clip posted by a fan page, Taylor said, “There’s always a beauty standard that you don’t meet.”

It was the first time the Grammy award-winning artist has spoken publicly about his struggle with eating disorders.
In a heartfelt comment, Gaga – real name Stefani Germanotta – wrote: “That’s really brave, everything you said. wow,” along with a black heart emoji.
The fan page captioned the minute-long post, in which Taylor spoke candidly in the backseat during a car ride: “This scene always breaks my heart.”
Discussing her progress, Taylor remarked in the outtake, “I don’t really care if someone points out that I’ve gained weight, it’s just something that makes my life better.”

She continued to speak of her weight gain and improved confidence, adding, “The fact that I’m a size six instead of a size 00… my body wasn’t meant to be like that.”
“I just didn’t understand that very well at the time. I don’t really think I knew.’
And with retrospective insight, Swift admitted, “I would have defended [my eating disorder] to anyone who said, “I’m worried about you.”
“I was like, ‘What are you talking about? Of course I’m eating. It’s totally normal — I’m just exercising a lot.’ And I did a lot of sports, but I didn’t eat.’

Swift, who built her teenage career out of Nashville, lamented on the scene, “If you’re thin enough, you don’t have that a** that everyone wants.
“But if you have enough weight on you to have an a**, then your stomach isn’t flat enough.” It’s all just impossible.’
Earlier in her career, the founder of Haus Labs also opened up about surviving bulimia and anorexia as a teenager.
“But today I join BODY REVOLUTION. To inspire courage. and BREED some m$therf*cking COMPASSION’, she wrote in 2013 on her Little Monsters site.
