She would defend herself if others made a comment about her thinning appearance. Swift said ‘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 also says, “You don’t ever say to yourself, ‘I have an eating disorder,’ but you know you’re making a list of everything that you put in your mouth that day and you know that’s probably not right, but then again there are so many diet blogs that tell you that’s what you should.”
