What is Miss Americana Taylor Swift about?
Miss Americana starts off with the very first diary of Tailor Swift, which is an existing reflection of the singer’s life, dreams, aspirations, and hopes. Lana Wilson’s documentary begins from here — from the roots itself — and follows the journey of Swift – from the days she started writing songs to the recent era when she released her seventh album, Lover in 2019.
In this inspiring documentary, we see how a young girl achieved her dreams in such a short span of time. Now, she is just turning 30 and is still figuring out the other aspects of her life. However, she is already a star! But this film does not only focus on her stardom. It is a more insightful look into Swift’s personal struggles — also documenting her much-publicized political awakening in 2018.
From Swift’s own words, we get to know her better. She says that to gain popularity, one must work extremely hard. She also cites the example of the release of her 2017 album Reputation, which did not garner a favorable response. Swift tells in the movie that some celebrities get “frozen at the age they get famous—and that’s kinda what happened to me.”
Additionally, ‘Miss Americana’ lends an exclusive look into the behind-the-scenes songwriting clips she’s released in the past. Again, there’s also coverage of certain controversial moments — including Kanye West’s mic-snatching incident on-stage at the 2009 VMAs and Kim Kardashian’s 2016 Snapchat video, which again revived this squabble. We additionally get glimpses of the groping photo of Swift during her sexual assault case against a radio DJ, which was kept away from public eyes by the singer’s lawyers.
From Swift’s struggles with an eating disorder to her mother’s cancer diagnosis, the documentary covers it all. And if you are a fan of the star, you should definitely give it a watch.
