This was at the Orange Bowl. The reporter was doing a story on Taylor and asked Ana specifically about Taylor's weight/fitness, which is an awkward question to answer for a 14 year-old who probably hasn't been media trained.
yes but it's good for drama
ofc the reporter fished on konjuh, though to reply to the next poster, i don't think second language had anything to do with it, "lose weight" and "get fit" is pretty straightforward, especially in the whole coherent quote
i do think she was very honest and probably quite true in her words though
