Renowned artist Lady Gaga has expressed her admiration for fellow musician, Taylor Swift, for her open discourse concerning her personal struggle with an eating disorder.

The statement was made in response to a video that has resurfaced on the social media platform, TikTok, featuring a clip from Swift's 2020 documentary, "Miss Americana," in which she candidly discusses her experiences with body image and societal pressure.

In the video, Swift is quoted as saying, "I don't care as much if somebody points out that I have gained weight, it's just something that makes my life better. There's always some standard of beauty that you're not meeting."

She goes on to state, "Because, if you're thin enough, then you don't have the figure that everybody wants. But if you have enough weight on you to have a good figure, then your stomach isn't flat enough. It's all just impossible."

Gaga, who has previously divulged her own struggles with bulimia and anorexia since the age of 15, commented on the video, stating, "That's really brave everything you said ???? wow."
