Though she has kept a relatively low profile since the release of her latest album “Lover,” Taylor Swift is eagerly excited for the premiere of her upcoming Netflix documentary, "Taylor Swift: Miss Americana."
The film, however, which scored a prestige premiere spot when it aired at the Sundance Film festival on January 23, isn’t being passed off as just another doc with behind the scenes footage of a concert.
Instead, Taylor is using the streaming platform to uncover a gradual examination of how she found her political voice, while also laying importance on subjects such as LGBT equality and women’s rights.
'Taylor Swift: Miss Americana'
Fans shouldn’t fear because there’ll still be plenty of footage being shown from the singer’s Reputation stadium tour, but all in all, the documentary has a bigger message it wants to focus its attention on.
In one of the segments, Swift mentions how she quickly fell into a pattern of people-pleasing, further discussing how her ongoing feud with Kanye West drastically affected her mental well-being for years.
Apparently, though, it was the film’s director, Lana Wilson, who openly suggested for Taylor to talk about her feud with Kanye West.
Her Feud With Kanye Affected Her Health
She told Variety in a candid interview that it was a vital moment in the doc in learning what kind of an emotional roller coaster the former country star endured because of the rapper’s antics.
“With the 2009 VMAs, it surprised me that when she talked about how the whole crowd was booing, she thought that they were booing her, and how devastating that was,” she told the outlet.
"That was something I hadn’t thought about or heard before, and made it much more relatable and understandable to anyone.”
Taylor Shares Her Side
In 2009, at the MTV Video Music Awards, Kanye West interrupted Taylor’s speech after winning an award he felt should have been handed to Beyonce, who he said had “the best video of all-time.”
And in 2015, another feud erupted between the two when Kanye used a derogatory term when describing Swift in his song, “Famous.”
Kanye’s fans, however, are strongly under the impression that with the Christian path he’s chosen to take in his life, there’s little chance that the father-of-three would want to reignite any bad blood with Taylor at this point.
Will Kanye and Kim Respond?
But while Kanye may not be the one who'll want to clear his name upon the documentary’s release by the month's end, Kim Kardashian could very well want to address Taylor - as she has in the past - by giving her thoughts on what she's seen on social media.
Despite a number of headlines having emerged, concerning Kanye's feud with Taylor being discussed in the documentary, the Hollywood duo haven't said a word about it just yet.
Taylor Swift: Miss Americana premieres on January 31 only on Netflix.
