Taylor Swift Defends Lady Gaga From “Invasive & Irresponsible” Body Comments – E! Online

Taylor Swift Slams “Invasive & Irresponsible” Body Comments Aimed at Lady GagaTaylor Swift thinks celebrities shouldn’t always have to shake it off. Especially when it comes to shallow scrutiny over their bodies. Case in point: the “Shake It Off” singer’s defense of Lady Gaga who, after rumors she was pregnant began to surface, recently had to set the record straight.

“Can we all agree that it’s **invasive & irresponsible** to comment on a woman’s body,” Taylor commented on Gaga’s June 4 TikTok, which she posted in response to the speculation. “Gaga doesn’t owe anyone an explanation & neither does any woman.” A message Taylor sealed with a kiss (emoji).

The comment was especially poignant, as Gaga included a nod to the The Tortured Poets Department artist in her pregnancy rebuttal. “Not pregnant–just down bad cryin at the gym,” Gaga wrote on her TikTok, quoting Taylor’s TTPD track, before adding a link to headcount.org and the message, “register to vote.” It was a coming together of pop stars fans couldn’t help but shower in applause.

“The taylor reference!!! my favorite girls,” one user wrote on Gaga’s video, while another added, “EXCUSE ME THE TS REFERENCE???? OH, OUR POP MOTHERS.” But this is not the first time the musical legends have supported each other, especially when it comes to matters of body image and life in the spotlight.

When a clip from Taylor’s 2020 Miss Americana documentary resurfaced online—in which the 34-year-old detailed her struggles with body image and disordered eating—Gaga took to the comments to praise Taylor for her honesty. “That’s really brave everything you said,” the American Horror Story actress commented on the TikTok, alongside a heart emoji. “Wow.”

And just as they did this time, fans loved the two artists showing each other love. As one user commented at the time, “Love the support between two amazing women.”

Ava Phillippe
“NBD but I just achieved a major milestone as a woman online,” Reese Witherspoon and ex-husband Ryan Phillippe’s daughter wrote in a TikTok video posted May 3. “I saw 2 different strangers commenting on my body.”

She continued, “The first said I should get on Oz*mpic because I’m too fat. The second accused me of starving myself because I’m too thin. My weight did not change in the time period between their comments. (& it wouldn’t be any of their business if it did!)”

Ava said that “no one deserves to be picked apart for what they look like.” She added, “You don’t always know what someone’s gone through or what they struggle with. But no matter who you are… Your beauty exceeds such superficial measures.”

Bebe Rexha
After receiving body-shaming comments, the “I’m Good” singer clapped back at the critics and explained why she’s tired of receiving criticism over her appearance. “I know I got fat,” she captioned her June 23 tweet. “I’m just so sick of people talking about it. NEXT!!!!!!”

In a separate post, the 33-year-old added, “Human beings go through weight fluctuations,” she continued, “it’s life and you don’t know what people are going through. Meds, disease, etc…”

Rumer Willis
After some critics accused the House Bunny actress of looking too skinny in an Instagram photo, the star fired back, writing, “I know I don’t need to do this but in an effort to spread some awareness and shed some light on body shaming tactics i felt the need to share. After the barrage of some really inappropriate comments left on my pic I posted yesterday I was left really bummed cause I was really enjoying the silly pics I took. It was a weird angle that even made me feel life I looked smaller than I do in real life. But regardless even though you may think it’s your job or even your right to leave unfiltered thoughts or judgements about my body for me and others to read… it’s not.”

“Coming for me in my comments and telling me how I’m too skinny or I need to eat is absolutely not helpful and extremely body shaming,” she continued.”Body shaming of any kind is something I will not stand for.”

More than a week later, she shared a photo of herself sunbathing in a bikini, writing, “For the haters….with love and gratitude kindly [kiss emoji], I’ll keep smiling regardless [peace sign emoji].”

Natalie Portman
In February 2021, the actress was the target of public pregnancy speculation, based on online photos of her wearing a dark blue tank top on set in Australia. She called out the news outlet that posted them in a rare Instagram Story post, writing, “Hey, so I’m totally not pregnant…but apparently, it’s still OK in 2021 for anyone to speculate and comment on a woman’s body shape whenever they want? Do better @nypost.”

Christina Anstead
The Flip or Flop star spoke out after online trolls kept judging her appearance on social media. “People are commenting that I look really skinny or that I need to eat,” she said on an Instagram Story video on Friday, Feb. 7. “This is actually the weight I’ve always weighed… You guys have just watched me have babies and then go back to my original weight. So don’t worry, everything’s fine.”
