Miss Americana


Taylor Swift? Documentary? Sus puro drama na naman yan.

Aba, dyan ka nagkakamali.

https://www.netflix.com/title/81028336

Ipinapakita dito kung gaano siya kagaling as an artist (kung paano niya nabubuo yung mga kanta niya), yung mga pinagdaanan niya for the past 13 years, atbp.


“A nice girl doesn’t force their opinions on people, a nice girl smiles and waves and says thank you, a nice girl doesn’t make people feel uncomfortable with her views. I was so obsessed with not getting in trouble, I’m just not going to do anything that anyone can say anything about.”

“We’re people who got into this line of work because we wanted people to like us, ‘cause we were intrinsically insecure, because we liked the sound of people clapping ’cause it made us forget how much we feel like we’re not good enough.”

Doon mo marerealize yung other side of the coin. Kung paano siya na-label-an as ‘pavictim’. She was slut-shamed. Sexually assaulted. Ang dami niyang pinagdaanan nitong mga nakaraang taon. Kung bakit siya napa-Look What You Made Me Do. Doon mo maa-appreciate na reputation is the best album talaga lol

And then yung Clean, nagkaroon ng bagong meaning sakin. Nakaka-goosebumps.


It’s not just about her story. It is also about ours.

Kung paano niya nilabag yung stereotype na, ang babae, hindi dapat nagpapahayag ng kanilang politikal na opinyon. “People don’t want to hear my political views—they just want to hear me sing songs about breakups.” Parang ang laki ng epekto sa midterm elections sa US magmula nung nagvoice out siya. Nakakatakot kasi pwedeng-pwedeng masira ang pangalan niya once na mag-state siya na against siya sa pangulo. Pero alam mo sabi niya? I don’t care.

Hence, there was only the young. SANA MAGAWA DIN TO NG PILIPINAS ANO. SANA MAGKAROON DIN NG MALAKING EPEKTO O IMPLUWENSIYA ANG KABATAAN SA POLITIKAL NA ESTADO NG ATING BANSA. Hindi yung masyado pa rin tayong tradisyunal na nagpapauto sa mga matatandang politiko na to. O ano, after 4 years, nagsisisi na ba kayo sa mga inihalal nyo?

“They aren’t gonna help us
Too busy helping themselves
They aren’t gonna change this
We gotta do it ourselves”

In general, ipinapakita ng dokumentaryong ito ang sitwasyon ng babae sa ating lipunan. Hindi sa feminist ako ah, pero di ba sana nakikita nyo yon. Hindi ako bias na porke fan ako, ganito ang reviews ko bla bla. This film teaches us to speak up for what we believe. 


“We do exist in this society where women in entertainment are discarded in an elephant graveyard by the time they’re 35. Everyone’s a shiny, new toy, for like, two years. The female artists that I know of have reinvented themselves 20 times more than the male artists. They have to… Or else you’re out of a job. Constantly having to reinvent, constantly finding new facets of yourself that people find to be shiny. Be new to us, be young to us, but only in a new way and only in the way we want. And reinvent yourself, but only in a way that we find to be equally comforting but also a challenge for you. Live out a narrative that we find to be interesting enough to entertain us, but not so crazy that it makes us uncomfortable.”


Standing broad-shouldered next to her was a love that was really something, not just the idea of something.

“I also was falling in love with someone who had a really wonderfully normal, balanced, grounded life. And we decided together that we wanted our relationship to be private. I wasn’t happy in the way that I’d been trained to be happy. It was happiness without anyone else’s input. It was just, we were happy.”


I NEED TO BE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF HISTORY.

Malaki ang impluwensiya ni Taylor Swift sa buhay ko hahahaha, hindi dahil sa breakup songs niya ah, pero yung mga kanta niya ay sumasalamin din sa takbo ng buhay ko. #reputation

 

Ah basta panoorin mo na lang.

Tapos na ako sa chapter na mina-manipulate ng lalaki ang buhay ko. I stepped up on my own.
