Here's what everyone's saying about Taylor Swift's new Netflix documentary

Taylor Swift is back and this time she’s streaming.

Swift's new documentary, entitled Miss Americana, is now on Netflix and follows the singer-songwriter over an eventful few years in her career. The film sees Swift open up about eating disorders, the perils of fame, her sexual assault trial and politics, and her fans were predictably obsessed.

It appears the most affecting moment in the film sees Swift learn that her album has been snubbed by the Grammys and, instead of sulking, vowing to follow it up with an even better record. That follow-up, Lover, was nominated this year.

Her relationship with actor Joe Alwyn also featured heavily and people were very into it.

The film shows Swift dealing with the aftermath of the pop star's public feud with Kanye West and how she coped with #TaylorSwiftIsOverParty trending worldwide after Kim Kardashian shared edited clips of a phone call between the paid. She says:

When people decided I was wicked and evil and conniving and not a good person, that was the one I couldn't really bounce back from, because my whole life was centred around it

Of the worldwide trend, Swift asks, "Do you know how many people have to be tweeting that they hate you for that to happen?"

The second half of the film concerns Swift's political beliefs and her decision to publicly endorse Democrat Phil Bredesen for Senate in 2018, no minor moment for a woman who came up through the country music scene in the Deep South.
