Taylor Swift opens up about her reputation, songwriting process in new Netflix special


Are you ready for it?

Taylor Swift gifts her fans with an up close and personal look at her wildly successful Reputation stadium tour in a new Netflix concert special that started streaming on New Year’s Eve.

“Taylor Swift Reputation Stadium Tour” offers a thrifty opportunity for Swift superfans to bask in the experience of a live show without handing over a pretty penny. Despite being billed as a documentary, Swift’s special is a standard concert movie that offers insights into her audience interactions and behind-the-scenes footage of the superstar preparing for the tour.

The concert film, which was recorded in Dallas on the last night of Swift’s U.S. tour, starts with people reading headlines about the Grammy Award-winning singer, referencing everything from her infamous beefs (“13 celebs have issues with Taylor Swift”) to her sexual assault case against a radio DJ (“Taylor Swift takes the stand in court today”).

As Swift’s reputation is called into question, the singer appears on stage in a black sequined bodysuit to open her concert with “Ready for It?” and “I Did Something Bad.”

The film shows Swift dancing her way through hits like “Look What You Made Me Do” (featuring a video appearance from comedian Tiffany Haddish), “Blank Space” and a “Shake It Off” collab with Camila Cabello and Charli XCX. The singer executes a flawless set, despite having a “tiny, minuscule cold,” even pausing between songs to blow her nose.
