Taylor Swift's Joke About Her 'Slappable Face' In Miss Americana Documentary Breaks Fans' Hearts

Excuse Me, I Love You (2020)

It's the tour documentary everyone is waiting for after hearing Netflix and Youtube were locked in a bidding war for Ariana Grande's 2019 Sweetener World Tour film, Excuse Me, I Love You, which arrives on December 21st.

Netflix eventually won, having forked out millions for the honour, and the doc will follow Ariana on her mammoth 101 date tour across North America and Europe, with the actual show performances focussed on a London concert.

Miss Americana 2020

Taylor Swift’s 2020 'Miss Americana' documentary gives fans a glimpse into her crazy life and features backstage and onstage concert footage from the ‘Reputation’ era.

Blackpink: Light Up the Sky

Another 2020 addition to Netflix's extensive pop star doc genre, Blackpink's flick tells the story of South Korean girl group, their rise to fame, global stardom and their journey to being the first ever K-pop group to play at Coachella in 2019.

It's a seriously interesting watch and hugely informative on way the K-pop industry works, intensely training young hopefuls for years before debuting them in bands to the music industry and world.

Gaga: Five Foot Two

Lady Gaga promised viewers ‘unfiltered, behind-the-scenes access to a year in her life, and that’s what we got in ‘Gaga: Five Foot Two’.

The documentary ‘introduces the woman behind the performer, the costumes, the glitz and the glamour’ and chronicles the events around the production of her fifth studio album ‘Joanne’ and her halftime performance at Super Bowl LI.

Katy Perry: Part Of Me

Released in 2012, ‘Katy Perry: Part of Me’ follows the pop star on her 124-date sold-out California Dreams tour and features interviews with family members and friends.

We also see the breakdown of her marriage to Russel Brand, which is pretty heartbreaking to watch. Russell filed for divorce while she was still on the tour, just 14 months after they tied the knot.

In one scene filmed shortly after their split, Katy says: “I’m a romantic and I believe in the whole fairytale.

“Love is a dream but the reality is making it work. I did everything I could - but its still failed.”

The pop star documentaries came thick and fast in 2020, thankfully, as we've never spent so much time at home and with any luck, we can try to remember what going to a concert is like through our TV screen.

Shawn's arrived in November which followed him on his 2018 world tour, spending time with his family, creating his fourth album and what everyone was looking for- his love story blossoming with Camila Cabello.
