The contrast between these two posts...oh, no, Taylor, just no!
Correct me if I’m wrong because I don’t know which red carpet this is from (edit: it says AMA’s right behind her, I’m a dummy) but is this what she wore to get what amounts to a lifetime achievement award?
Yeah, she doesn't seem okay. She cited family health as the reason she's not doing a huge tour for her latest album. She and her mother are really close, and if it turns out her mother's cancer came back and is terminal - well, there are better ways to deal with awful feelings, but this coping method is understandable, especially if paired with depression meds.Correct me if I’m wrong because I don’t know which red carpet this is from (edit: it says AMA’s right behind her, I’m a dummy) but is this what she wore to get what amounts to a lifetime achievement award?
Didn’t the AMA’s give her “Artist of the Decade”? Regardless of whether or not this is her (horrible) outfit on that particular evening, wouldn’t you put in some sort of effort to look impressive if you were going to be honored with Artist of the Decade? It just blows my mind how you could rest on your laurels for so long, and not even this achievement could break you from your complacency in your newfound average and unmotivated state.
I imagine she must have serious depression. I don’t like to speculate about things like that, and if she does, I hope her struggles with such a heavy condition ease. But I can’t imagine another explanation.
Agree but where does she actually say that in this article? All she said was that she tries to avoid thinking negatively about her body. She's hardly obese (I am terrible at guessing BMIs but I think she'd be BMI 24-25 max, which while fat within our standards, is still medically "healthy"). I don't pay too much attention to her but I don't remember her saying anything along the lines of she's "sooo much happier at a heavier weight" or even really explicitly addressing her weight gain (feel free to correct me if I am wrong). TBH, I agree with what she is saying in regards to avoiding negative thoughts about herself, including her weight. We're all different, but I am definitely a glass half-full kind of girl, and when I focus too much on the negatives about myself, it's hard not to feel depressed and unmotivated.I get very annoyed when people who gain weight try to justify it by saying they were unhappy before, like so many celebrities and social media people always have to make a video or a post addressing their weight gain.The musical icon dished to People that she's ready to 'toss out things' that don't serve her soul, including any opposing thoughts on her body.www.dailymail.co.uk
Wanting to look and feel good and thus being mindful of what you're putting in to your body doesn't automatically mean that you were restricting, underrating, unhealthy etc.
Yes of course, I definitely agree that it's good to not be negative about yourself.TBH, I agree with what she is saying in regards to avoiding negative thoughts about herself, including her weight
The close ups of her face in this video remind me of being in a heavier weight and immediately seeing it from a thicker neck and rounder face... Jawline just kind of non-existent and what left of it melts to the shorter looking neckI usually wouldn’t subject you all to an image like this but in this video it looks like she’s eaten the skinnier version of herself...
This, exactly. The people who are truly happy in themselves, and make the choice to let their body go rather than control it, don’t promote it at others’ expense. If she were truly comfortable with herself, she would simply be - not project insecurity by purporting that the opposite choice (cultivating an image and curating your body’s aesthetic) is absurd and unthinkable.What grinded my gears though was around 2:10 mark she spoke in a way that can be interpreted in a mocking, projecting way; ''I'm a woman, not a coat-hanger and I need to be healthy and take pleasure in food and not use my body in as exercise of control'', so maybe she's had a share of problems with body-image; however I'm a woman not a coat hanger set the tone to sound kinda ... bitter. Yeah she should take care of herself but since she seems to feel bad for gaining I hope she wouldn't take the route of shaming women who are still thin (healthy or not). Makes one seems reeaaallyyy jealous and catty and not in an ok way especially when she used to be somewhat thin too and according to her words, even worked for it.
You’re kinder than I.She seems sweet enough though and she rocks that nude, off-white blouse.
