Swift gets candid about the happenings behind the screen in her documentary. “Throughout my whole career label executives would just say: ‘A nice girl doesn’t force their opinions on people. A nice girl smiles and says and waves and says thank you.’ I became the person everyone wanted me to be.” Taylor said in an interview.
The film focuses on the juxtaposition in creating art against the issues faced by attaining global stardom. She is followed in her journey through stardom, pressure to be silent and finding her voice. Taylor disclosed her fear and people pleasing tendency that caged her in her “good girl” mould. She reminisced over the time when she at 22 years of age was lauded for staying quiet about politics!
Taylor Swift came out with her first political statement during the first midterm elections. She asked young people to go vote and even showed her support for Bernie Sanders! “To celebrate and not advocate felt wrong” the artist rightly said in an interview about her highly political documentary.
Last August she came out with her album called “Lover”, with the new album came new found perspectives on politics. In the album her tracks focused on issues like the elections and discrimination. She released a bashing track titled “You need to calm down” aimed at keeping the queerphobes at bay. The song topped the charts because of the inclusivity, love and acceptance it portrayed . Taylor has become a role model for many, with her brave acts of defiance.
In the documentary, she said she’ll focus on never being “Polite” again! YAS Queen! In 2020 we focus on drawing healthy boundaries that’ll help our growth! We can’t wait to watch the documentary !
