Taylor Swift has become a strong, independent woman and she’s no longer here to play. 

Having turned 30 at the end of last year, the “You Need to Calm Down” singer is starring in her own documentary about her life. The Netflix production offers an intimate look into the artist’s life and featured many moments on your, in the recording studio, and downtime with her family. 

The film is scheduled to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival next week, but we now have our first look thanks to the trailer. 

“Throughout my whole career, label executives would just say, ‘A nice girl doesn’t force their opinions on people. A nice girl smiles and waves and says ‘Thank you.’ I became the person everyone wanted me to be,” the Grammy winner says in the trailer. 

The clip demonstrates the transition which Swift has undergone since first hitting the scene as a country singer. “I feel really good about not feeling muzzled anymore,” she says, “and it was my own doing.”
