“Taylor Swift opens up about eating disorder.”
It is arguably the most revealing part of Miss Americana, Taylor Swift’s Netflix documentary released last Friday. It’s the headline that circulated immediately after the film’s Sundance premiere, and the part mentioned in seemingly every review of the film since it started streaming.
In the documentary, the singer talks candidly about her relationship with her body and food during the 1989 era of her career. While on tour for that fifth studio album, she says she significantly restricted her food intake and exercised frequently. She maintained lists of what she ate and, at times, “stopped eating” altogether.
