Taylor Swift has given a befitting reply to those who constantly ask women about starting their own family at the age of 25.

Speaking in an interview with People, the 29-year-old musician encouraged the young women to stand up to those who keep on asking them questions about raising a family in their mid-20s. The “Bad Blood” singer also shared that women need to be more empowered about such issues.  

Swift, who is one of the People of the Year 2019 recipients along with Michelle Obama, Jennifer Lopez, and Jennifer Aniston, revealed that she is not hesitant to stand up for herself in such situations and told other women to do the same. The “You Need To Calm Down” hitmaker also noted that it is “rude” to ask a woman, who has just turned 25, about taking a drastic decision like this at such a young age.

“The more women are able to voice their discomfort in social situations, the more it become the social norm that people who ask the questions at parties like ‘When are you going to start a family?’ to some as soon as they turn 25 are a bit rude,” Swift said.   

The “Cats” star also explained that women should know that they are more than “incubators” and people don’t need to ask such questions just because they are in their mid-20s and they are “female.”

During the interview, she also praised British actress Jameela Jamil for being an advocate of body neutrality. The songstress told the publication that there are certain parts of her brain that she doesn’t visit as often, like stressing about her body. At that exact moment, the ten-time Grammy award-winning artist stated that whenever she feels stressed about her body, she just reads some of Jamil’s quotes on body image and normal body weight.

“I really love that there are advocates out there in the world being very vocal about the fact that aging is not a slow march to irrelevancy, death, and decay,” Swift said.

In related news, a new documentary on Swift’s life is heading to Netflix next year. In a press release obtained by  E! News, the streaming giant announced that an original documentary, entitled “Taylor Swift: Miss Americana,” will be streaming live on its platform in the first half of 2020.

The documentary, which is directed by Lana Wilson, will be available on Netflix after having its premiere at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival in January.
