People Are Changing Their Minds About Taylor Swift After Watching Her Netflix Special And Honestly, It's About Time

Welcome to the fandom, new Swifties.

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:

Netflix /

Thank you, Taylor.

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.

E! /

If you don't know what happened by now, I'm sure you don't care and never will, but it basically involved some videos of a phone conversation between Kanye West and Taylor Swift, which were posted to Kim's Snapchat without Taylor's knowledge and resulted in the hashtag #TaylorSwiftIsOverParty trending worldwide.

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.

I disliked Taylor Swift when I was younger for whatever reason, it wasn’t even a valid reason. But i’m watching her netflix show and i’m in tears, she deserves so much respect, she’s such a performer, wow

Gosh im watching Taylor Swift Rep tour on Netflix... and I'm sorry for hating you for no fucking reason you are a talented Queen .dammm.

that taylor swift girl really snapped so hard like i’ve always hated her just cos she dated my boyfriend harry but dang gurl got some real talent and she’s really out here serving us major bops

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.

Ok I’m not exactly a Taylor Swift fan but I watched the Reputation tour on Netflix and it’s amazing? I don’t know what made me put it on but I had fun. 🐍

i'm not a fan of Taylor Swift's latest album but i cried three times during her Netflix show so really, who can tell at this point

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.

Watched @taylorswift13 Reputation film on Netflix yesterday. Wow, what a show and what a performer. It reinforced what I thought when I saw her live - huge venue but somehow she makes you feel she's singing directly to you.

(Or on your couch, not even in the stadium at all.)

And totally relating to the speeches she makes at various points in the show.

watching taylor swift’s reputation stadium tour on Netflix and she mentioned that when she writes a song, it’s usually her trying to get past something and understand something she’s going through... by writing about it – and I think I’ve never relate to anything more

In fact, people were realising they kind of only disliked Taylor because it seemed like everyone else did.

watching the entire world realize they hated taylor swift for literally no reason is something whoa

And that the way she handled the whole Kimye drama was actually kind of genius.

I’m watching Taylor Swift’s Reputation Stadium Tour on Netflix and I can’t help but get chills. That issue with Kanye West could have easily destroyed her (anyone’s, really) career, but she handled it so strategically then fucking rebranded. Taylor Swift is a genius 🐍

This really is the power of Taylor Swift.

So... give me shit if you want, but I watched the new Taylor Swift concert special on Netflix. And holy shit, it’s good. She’s honestly an amazing performer and stage presence. Seriously, if you don’t care about her, check this out because it was so enjoyable.

I somehow ended up watching Taylor Swift's reputation tour on Netflix and I have so much respect for her now..😭

Now, I'm going to watch the Reputation Tour for the millionth time in a row. And you should all join me!

See you at the TS7 tour, new Swifties!!!!!
