Taylor Swift Reminds Us There’s “Nothing Like Her” In Miss Americana

Taylor Swift Reminds Us There’s “Nothing Like Her” In Miss Americana

Taylor Swift opened herself up even more to us in her new documentary, Miss Americana, and we loved sharing the laughs, memories, and tears with the pop queen so much, you’ll have to pry the remote from our hands. 

Showing only on Netflix and in select theaters, Swift shows a side of herself most have never seen, an in-depth look and overview of her rise to fame and the many things she went through that made her into the strong, fierce songstress we have all grown to love. This documentary shows home footage, inner thoughts and behind the scenes of the life of Taylor Swift, some she thought would never even be shown to the world.

Taking us on a ride through her life in the public eye, her relationship with the media, her political views, and chats about her mother’s battle with cancer, this film shows Swift in a whole new light and reminds us exactly why we love her so much.

Opening with her piano and a cat, the scene sums up shows Swift in a vulnerable place. In an interview with The Wrap, Director Lana Wilson mentioned how much access she had to Swift to get the footage needed to complete the film, “No one has ever filmed her in the studio before, and the interview I did with her at the beginning was the first interview she’d done in three years, so it felt very raw and fresh.”

We even get a quick glance into Swift’s private romance with Joe Alwyn as they are shown cuddling after a concert, silhouettes in the grass and Swift serenading her ‘Lover.’ “We found a way to indicate the significance and the importance of her relationship in her life while respecting the privacy that she wanted to maintain with it,” said Wilson. 

With this documentary, we are taken on a journey of Swift’s self-acceptance, as she speaks on touchy subjects like too much dieting and how she had to shake the need to be loved by everyone. One of the biggest stands this film focused on was Taylor Swift’s political stance she took for the first time when she spoke openly on politics ahead of the mid-term elections.

Even though the election didn’t turn out as Swift had hoped, she was happy to know she empowered enough young voters that it made a dent in the number of signups to vote after her initial Instagram post.

I’m writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which I’ll be voting in the state of Tennessee. In the past I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now. I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country. I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent. I cannot vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love. Running for Senate in the state of Tennessee is a woman named Marsha Blackburn. As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn. Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me. She voted against equal pay for women. She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape. She believes businesses have a right to refuse service to gay couples. She also believes they should not have the right to marry. These are not MY Tennessee values. I will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives. Please, please educate yourself on the candidates running in your state and vote based on who most closely represents your values. For a lot of us, we may never find a candidate or party with whom we agree 100% on every issue, but we have to vote anyway. So many intelligent, thoughtful, self-possessed people have turned 18 in the past two years and now have the right and privilege to make their vote count. But first you need to register, which is quick and easy to do. October 9th is the LAST DAY to register to vote in the state of TN. Go to vote.org and you can find all the info. Happy Voting! 🗳😃🌈

Continuing to fuel that fire, an exclusive song, ‘Only the Young’ was featured in the documentary that gives people hope that there’s still time to make a difference.

Breaking down stereotypes and “shaking off” the haters, Taylor Swift is the perfect example of following one’s dream and telling your story. Known for stirring up trouble wherever she goes it’s really just a strong woman, putting her foot down and speaking up for herself.  This documentary was important to not only fans but also Swift to give herself even more of a voice and show everyone what she stands for and how great of a young woman she’s become.
