Taylor Swift Opens Up About Eating Disorder In New Netflix Documentary
Miss Americana streams on Netflix on January 31st, and will show an honest look into the "Lover" musicians life in the spotlight, and just how one of the world's hottest pop star managed the pressures of fame.
After the gala screening in Utah, Miss Americana received a standing ovation
The new candid documentary follows Swift during a turbulent time in her life, after being denied Grammy award for Reputation.
Swift admits that it was not only a healing journey for her soul, but a political awakening as well.
She expresses regret that during the 2016 election, she was worried standing up against the political climate would alienate her fans. As time progressed, Swift endorsed the Democrats in the 2018 election, despite her publicist's warning.
Swift has also created LGBTQ+ awareness and showed support in her 2019 hit single, "You Need To Calm Down".
More tender moments in the film show her initial reactions to love interest Joe Alwyn.
To Swift, Alwyn came into her life at a perfect time.
"I was exercising a lot, but I also wasn't eating."
"I'd walk into a photo shoot and be in the dressing room and somebody who worked at a magazine would say, 'Oh, wow, this is so amazing that you can fit into the sample sizes. Usually we have to make alterations to the dresses, but we can take them right off the runway and put them on you!' And I looked at that as a pat on the head," Swift says in her Variety interview.
Swift also admits she was underfeeding herself to the point that during her 2015 tour, she felt she could have "passed out" during her shows.
Lately, Swift is practising self love and delicate care for her body by claiming, "It's better to think you look fat, than to look sick."
With her newest album Lover, with hits reaching no.1 on the charts, and a recent Artist of the Decade award, it is obvious that Swift is taking her awakening to a higher level, and allowing fans to join her on the ride.
