Blake Lively is showing love to Taylor Swift and Beyonce following the stars’ respective blockbuster tours and concert film openings.

On Saturday (Dec. 2), the Gossip Girl alum took to Instagram after she and Swift attended the London of premiere of Bey’s Renaissance: A Film By Beyoncé earlier in the week to share a strong message about female empowerment.

“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,” Lively captioned a photo gallery of herself at the opening. “Most of my best friends are women who would’ve been packaged to me as threats or competition. It’s our job to show younger generations the power in aligning rather than dividing.”

She jokingly added, “All this to say, @beyonce and @taylorswift neither of you have to be threatened by my pop stardom. There’s space for us all.”

The A Simple Favor actress’ heartfelt note arrives amid Swift and Beyonce’s record-breaking Eras and Renaissance tours, along with the debuts of their new concert films.

Lively’s post featured a carousel of snapshots from the London premiere of Beyoncé’s Renaissance concert film on Thursday (Nov. 30). One pic features the actress alongside Bey and another shows her posing with Swift.

A day earlier, Swift shared her own photos from the premiere, including an image of her standing alongside Beyonce. “Got invited to London by The Queen…✨👑✨ Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé is in theaters now!!” Swift captioned a series of photos.

Swift’s attendance at the London premiere arrived after Bey supported Tay at her Eras Tour film premiere in Los Angeles in October.

“I’m so glad I’ll never know what my life would’ve been like without @beyonce‘s influence,” Swift wrote after the event, sharing a gif of her and Bey posing in movie theater seats. “The way she’s taught me and every artist out here to break rules and defy industry norms.”
