Taylor Swift Praises Jameela Jamil For Supporting The ‘Body Neutrality’ Philosophy

Taylor Swift has thrown her support behind Jameela Jamil, taking the opportunity to praise The Good Place Star for her stance on the body neutrality movement.

Body neutrality, as distinct from body positivity, is a philosophy that encourages people to “stop focusing on their bodies and not judge others on their bodies either.”

Speaking with Zane Lowe on Beats 1, Swift praised the actress for being a driving force in spreading this particular idea, saying:

“Thank God we’ve had #MeToo movements and moments where we’re looking at ourselves as a society and we’re looking at internalized misogyny. We’re looking at the way we treat critiquing women’s bodies. We have amazing women out there like Jameela Jamil saying, ‘I’m not trying to spread body positivity. I’m trying to spread body neutrality where I can sit here and not think about what my body is looking like’.”

In the past, Jamil has criticised influencers like Khloe Kardashian for promoting diet detox teas, saying “I hope all these celebrities all shit their pants in public.” She has also criticised magazines for airbrushing photographs of her.

Earlier today, Yahoo News ran a piece around this topic with the headline “Taylor Swift Praises Kim Kardashian Critic Jameela Jamil …”, and Jamil blasted them for trying to drag Taylor’s old rival into the conversation for the sake of clicks.

“Guys … Kim has *nothing* to do with this,” she wrote in response. “Is there not a way to just leave it at one girl championing another girl, without somehow turning it into a high school cat fight? It’s such toxic messaging for and about girls.”
