The first trailer for Taylor Swift’s highly anticipated documentary Taylor Swift Miss Americana has been released.
In the trailer, Taylor opens up about her feelings before performing at the 2019 MTV VMAs. “Just gonna go have fun, no one out there in the audience actively hates me. Not get dead face. Ready, totally ready,” she says. “I feel really good about not feeling muzzled anymore. And it was my own doing,” she also says in the trailer.
Swift describes how throughout her career unnamed label executives have told her “a nice girl doesn’t force her opinions on people” and “a nice girl smiles and waves and says thank you,” which turned her into the person everyone else wanted her to be. Taylor says she spent time deconstructing “an entire belief system” in order to be reborn as a person who can be happy without worrying about what everyone else wants her to be.
The doc directed by Emmy winner Lana Wilson will hit select theaters and Netflix on January 31st after debuting at the Sundance Film Festival tonight.
