Lena Dunham defended Taylor Swift’s decision to refrain from political activism in this month’s issue of Rolling Stone, per Mediaite.
Swift has come under fire for refusing to speak out against President Trump and not participating in the Women’s March on Washington.
Check it out:
I just think everyone has to do it their way. When I was lesser known, I was like, “Who could not share their opinion?” Then I found out that when you talk about politics, people straight up tweet you the floor plan of your house and say they’re coming to your house. You have to f*cking watch it because people are nuts.
Dunham expressed admiration for her friend:
She’s truly just an artist who has to make things to survive. I guess that’s what we have most in common. And she’s never not making music. If people know about it or they don’t, she’s never not making music, and that’s like, something that I’ve really watched with a lot of admiration. Because she’s been put through the ringer, and she’s continued to make her work. People who understand how to protect themselves but aren’t so beaten down that they can’t be creative – that to me is the greatest.
Kudos to Dunham on these comments. Here’s one thing everyone can agree on.
