'Taylor Swift: Miss Americana': New Documentary to Give 'Intimate' Look Into Swift's

In January 2020, an all-new Taylor Swift documentary will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. No exact release date has been revealed. Produced by Tremolo Production, the documentary is directed by Lana Wilson (The Departure) with Morgan Neville, Caitrin Rogers and Christine O'Malley serving as producers.

Taylor Swift shakes off negativity for her upcoming 30th birthday.

This is an important conflict to have in today's music industry because it is rare for the artists to be able to own their own masters.

Prior to the official announcement of the documentary, Swift said last month that her former record label Big Machine Records (BMLG) had obstructed her plans to release the Netflix Special (among others), claiming that ultimately it was "tyrannical" control over her by forbidding her to use the songs she wrote and recorded with the label. Swift further said that she was barred from using the songs in the documentary or even performing a medley of her songs at the 2019 American Music Awards (though she ultimately did).

Unfortunately, due to her ongoing struggling battle with Scooter Braun and Big Machine Label, Swift had no choice but to break the news to fans earlier this year in a not-so-pleasant way.

The next morning, the BMLG issued a statement rejecting Swift's allegations.

"There are certain parts of my brain that I don't visit as often, like stressing out about my body, stressing out about being on trend, stressing out about people thinking I'm cool, stressing out about people thinking really anything about me", Swift told People in an interview published on Thursday, Dec. 5. One source reported that "the clearances were granted on time". She explained, "She talks about how we should just be not so much body-positive, but body-neutral". Though male artists are rarely criticized for writing break-up songs, Swift's frequent discussions of her romantic triumphs and pitfalls in her lyrics made her a target for derision by Twitter and real-life critics alike.

Actress Jameela Jamil is one person that Swift is inspired by, as she noted, "I really love that there are advocates out there in the world being very vocal about the fact that aging is not a slow march to irrelevancy, death and decay".
