Nadia explained to BuzzFeed News: “When I read [the negative comments], I sort of laughed. Some said “I hate when people are trying to be just like their idols, be yourself!” Well, I’m not trying to be anyone but myself. I didn’t put on a blonde wig and go out and buy her exact outfit. I made it work with what I had. And what I had was just me. And that’s something to be proud of. I’m not a size double zero. I’m a size 8. And that’s OK with me. Because I think what people need to understand is that the size of clothing I am, doesn’t have anything to do with the size of my heart and all the compassion in it.”
Nadia told BuzzFeed she was lucky to have a lot of Swifties come to her defense: “That’s what’s so great about Taylor. She sets an example for her fans, and always has. The best thing to be in life is yourself and if someone has a problem with that, it’s a reflection of them not you.”
