As I'm sure you know — because it feels like everyone in the world has watched it at this point — last week Taylor Swift's Reputation Stadium Tour movie dropped on Netflix. I'll let Ms Swift herself review it for you right now:
Stans of Taylor already know she basically spent the majority of 2018 travelling the world on said stadium tour, living her best life and breaking records left, right, and centre.
But that wasn't always the case. For the majority of 2016 and at least the first half of 2017, Taylor's reputation (lol) was less than stellar in the eyes of the public, thanks to an extremely under-the-radar (also lol) feud with the Kardashian-Wests.
It's fair to say Taylor turned the whole situation around with her Reputation era. She wiped all her social media accounts, ditched public appearances almost entirely, and used her concerts as an opportunity to speak directly to fans about her life rather than giving interviews to the media.
Obviously, the huge success of the Reputation Tour proved Taylor is still hugely loved and respected amongst her hardcore fans, but there was still some animosity towards her from people who never considered themselves fans in the first place.
But when the tour movie dropped on Netflix on New Year's Eve — and people were able to watch it without spending, like, a bunch of dollars on tickets — she acquired some brand new stans.
To be honest, it's hard to get through the whole two hours without bopping, crying, and bopping some more, so I don't blame them.
They're loving Taylor's uncanny ability to make you feel like she's talking directly to you, even though you're in a stadium full of 80,000 other people.
And totally relating to the speeches she makes at various points in the show.
In fact, people were realising they kind of only disliked Taylor because it seemed like everyone else did.
And that the way she handled the whole Kimye drama was actually kind of genius.
This really is the power of Taylor Swift.
Now, I'm going to watch the Reputation Tour for the millionth time in a row. And you should all join me!
