And we couldn’t agree more
Jennifer Lawrence has got a lot of time for Taylor Swift – which obviously, we totally agree with, because Taylor is all types of brilliant.
But imagine being so close to Taylor that you could phone her up and call her a “badass bitch”? Obviously, that’s something that we want to do, too…
Jen was speaking to Extra at Comic-Con when she was asked about winning the “gender wage gap fight”.
That was a reference to the one tiny weeny time that Jen called out her bosses after it emerged in leaked emails that she was being paid less than her male co-stars on American Hustle – which she was nominated for an Oscar for.
Jen then asked for a pay rise in line with the men – and is now commanding £13 million per film. Go Jen!
Jen previously said: “If you’re doing the same job, you should be compensated and treated in the same way.”
But Jen was modest about her achievement – and even name-checked Taylor for her recent calling out of Apple Music.
“Taylor Swift is a badass,” she said. “That letter that she wrote about Apple, I texted her and was like, ‘You is a badass bitch.’ She’s awesome.”
Jen was referencing Taylor’s groundbreaking open letter to Apple – who had initially refused to pay artists for the first three months of its new music streaming service.
“These are not the complaints of a spoiled, petulant child… these are the echoed sentiments of every artist, writer and producer in my social circles who are afraid to speak up publicly because we admire and respect Apple so much.
“Please don’t ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation.”
The music giant then backed down and agreed to pay artists for their music straight from the word go on their new service.
Amazing work, ladies.
