It was the first time the Grammy award winning artist spoke publicly about struggling with disordered eating.

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 back seat during a car ride, ‘This scene always breaks my heart.’

Discussing her progress, Taylor noted in the outtake, ‘I don’t care as much if somebody points out that I have gained weight, it’s just something that makes my life better.’

Continuing to speak on her weight gain and improved self-confidence, she added, ‘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.’

And with retrospective insight, Swift admitted, ‘I would’ve defended [my eating disorder] to anyone who said, “I’m concerned about you.” 

‘I was like, “What are you talking about? Of course I eat. It’s perfectly normal — I just exercise a lot.” And I did exercise a lot — but I wasn’t eating.’

Swift, who built her career out of Nashville as a teen, lamented in the scene, ‘If you’re thin enough, then you don’t have that a** that everybody wants. 

‘But if you have enough weight on you to have an a**, then your stomach isn’t flat enough. It’s all just f****** impossible.’

Earlier in her career the Haus Labs founder also opened up about surviving bulimia and anorexia as a teen.

‘But today I join the BODY REVOLUTION. To Inspire Bravery. and BREED some m$therf*cking COMPASSION,’ she wrote on her site Little Monsters in 2013.
