Cara Delevingne has praised Taylor Swift’s “relentless, endless fire” for fighting back against Scooter Braun’s purchase of her old music.

Cara Delevingne is a firm believer in female solidarity, and her actions prove it.

Earlier this year the actress and model chose to speak out against R Kelly following the release of the Surviving R Kelly documentary, using her platform to support the women who were victims of his “emotional and physical abuse”. 

And now, Cara Delevingne has shown her support for women again, praising the actions of her close friend and world-famous singer, Taylor Swift.

Following Swift’s announcement that she was planning to re-record her past songs in light of the news that music mogul Scooter Braun had bought the rights to her last six albums, Delevingne was quick to share her praise of Swift in an empowering and optimistic statement.

Walking the red carpet at the premiere for her new Amazon Prime Video series Carnival Row, Delevingne used the spotlight to praise Swift’s bravery in standing up to Braun, whom Swift had previously described a “manipulative bully”.

“She’s one of those women who is just relentless, endless fire, not biting to draw blood, but biting when you need to bite.” Delevingne told Entertainment Tonight. “You need to stand up for yourself… you’re defending yourself and being who you are and that’s what I love about her.

“That’s what I’ll always respect about her, that innate strength and wisdom,” she continued. “If you’re an artist and you make things, it’s yours at the end of the day, so own it.”

The news that Swift would re-record all of her past music came in a preview of a pre-recorded interview Swift has done with CBS Sunday Morning, which is set to air this weekend. 

Asked whether she would be re-recording the songs so she could own the newer versions, Swift said, “Oh yeah,” adding that it was “absolutely” the plan. Fellow singer Kelly Clarkson previously urged Swift to re-record her music, saying she would buy all of her new versions “just to prove a point”.

This isn’t the first time Delevingne has stood up for Swift during her high-profile feud with Scooter Braun. She previously defended Swift on an Instagram post made by Justin Beiber in the original masters purchase announcement, which accused Swift of using her situation to “get sympathy”.

“I wish you spent less time sticking up for men and more time trying to understand women and respecting their valid reactions,” she wrote. “As a married man, you should be lifting women up instead of tearing them down because you are threatened.”

Swift’s latest album, Lover, is set to come out tomorrow (23 August), and is the first to be released outside her old record label.
