‘Taylor Swift: Miss Americana’ Reveals What She Was Always Afraid to Say

Taylor Swift revealed that public opinion about her body led her to an eating disorder.

"It's not good for me to see pictures of myself every day", claimed the vocalist.

"I watched the Netflix Brené Brown special episode about shame because I read a lot of her books because I run into shame from time to time", Swift says.

In the film, Taylor admitted that in the past, she'd see "a picture of me where I feel like I looked like my tummy was too big, or... someone said that I looked pregnant ... and that'll just trigger me to just starve a little bit - just stop eating". "✌️Friday calmness✌️", captioned Taylor for this radiant selfie posted to her Instagram back in June.

It is the first time that Swift has talked candidly about her experiences with an eating disorder.

"As well as the headline was similar to'Pregnant at 18?' And it was since I'd worn something which made my lower belly look not horizontal". If I was given a punishment, I would record it as bad.

"And after that I would certainly stroll right into a photoshoot as well as be in the clothing area as well as someone that operated at a publication would certainly claim, 'Oh, wow, this is so wonderful that you can fit into the sample sizes".

Massive explosion rips through Houston building, shock waves felt across city
Police described the incident as a "building explosion" and warned all traffic to avoid the area in the northwest of the city. The Houston Fire Department says one person was taken from the area of the explosion to a nearby hospital .


"And I looked at that as a pat on the head", she told Variety. "So I merely registered that as a punishment", Taylor reveals.

Taylor Swift didn't mention Scooter Braun once in her new documentary, "Miss Americana," which saw its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on Thursday night. I'm not as articulate as I needs to be about this subject as a result of there are such a lot of individuals who may discuss it in a greater method.

We imagine she'll be delivering another inspiring message for her Swifties and fellow celebs who are battling the same issues.

Miss Americana debuts on Netflix on January 31 while Crip Camp streams in March. Because I choose and choose now, for the most part, what matters to me. "Now I understand that no, if you eat food, have energy, become stronger, you can do all these shows and not feel excited". She also says that she's OK with "the fact that I'm a size 6 instead of a size double-zero". I think a lot of us push the boundaries of dieting, but taking it too far can be really unsafe.

Through the interviews and behind-the-scenes footage, a theme emerged: Swift reflecting on her need for approval from an audience, and how that need for years kept her from saying what was really on her mind. Swift even let Wilson film in the recording studio, something she never allowed before. Obviously, you can't help but think about a similar fallout to what happened when the Dixie Chicks made their comment about then-president George W. Bush. "The means she mentions body photo, it's almost like she talks in a hook", said Swift.

After a standing ovation, Swift turned to Wilson and said, "So I've never done this before". I was surprised, of course. "If you reviewed her quotes concerning females as well as body photo as well as aging as well as the manner in which females are dealt with in our market as well as depicted in the media, I promise the means she talks resembles verses, as well as it obtains stuck in my head as well as it soothes me down. But I wasn't eating".
