‘Gossip Girl’ fame Blake Lively took to Instagram to share her thoughts on the powerful dynamic between women, days after she attended the premiere of ‘Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé‘. She particularly mentioned and praised Taylor Swift and Beyoncé in her post.
Taking to Instagram, the actress wrote in the caption, “When I grew up, women were always pit against one another. It took me until adulthood to see that the instinct for women to lift each other up to their highest potential is the norm, not the exception.“

“Most of my best friends are women who would’ve been packaged to me as threats or competition,” she wrote. “It’s our job to show younger generations the power in aligning rather than dividing,” she added.
Further lightening the tone of the post, she wrote, “All this to say, @beyonce and @taylorswift neither of you have to be threatened by my pop stardom. There’s space for us all.”
