Taylor Swift's Miss Americana documentary is incredible. Here's everything you need to know about it...
Taylor Swift dropped her Miss Americana documentary on Netflix on 31 January, six months before her 8th studio album, 'Folklore'.
The film gives a behind-the-scenes look into the ‘Lover’ singer’s life, million dollar career, and position as a role model.

Here's everything you need to know about it...
In the trailer, the clip opens with Taylor saying: "Throughout my whole career, label executives would just say, ‘a nice girl doesn’t force their opinions on people, a nice girl smiles and waves and says thank you’. I became the person everyone wanted me to be."
We then see a string of news reports slating her figure, her group of friends, and her dating history before she talks about taking a break from the spotlight for a whole year, which she thought "was what people wanted.
"I had to de-construct an entire belief system, toss it out and reject it."
From the trailer we see how Taylor moved on to find happiness 'without anyone else's input,' breaking her silence on politics and writing music such as her huge hit 'Me!' which she dropped in April 2019.

Miss Americana made its debut at the Sundance Film Festival. It was released on Netflix in January 2020 and is available to watch now.
Amid her ongoing feud with Scooter Braun last year, Taylor said in an impassioned statement shared on Twitter the music mogul and Scott Borchetta had allegedly “declined the use of my older music or performance footage for this project even though there is no mention of them or Big Machine Records anywhere in the film”.
Scott and Scooter became embroiled in a feud with Taylor after purchasing Big Machine Records, which she used to be signed to.
However, Variety reported that the rights to use her old hits had been cleared 'within a timely manner'.
