The singer then recalled being praised for fitting into sample sizes on other magazine shoots and viewing that as a “pat on the head”.

“You register that enough times, and you just start to accommodate everything towards praise and punishment, including your own body,” she said.

Back in 2014, Gaga praised Swift for her authenticity during an interview with Howard Stern after an interaction they had at the American Music Awards.

Gaga recalled not believing Swift who said she loved the songs ARTPOP and Applause until a friend called from a set where Swift was “blasting” the songs.

“And I said to myself, ‘I like this girl.’ You know why? Because she said the same thing to my face that she said behind my back.”
