Taylor Swift: Miss Americana Netflix documentary gets release date

Pop star was recently announced as one of the headliners for Glastonbury Festival

Taylor Swift slams Scooter Brauns ‘poisonous male privilege’ in Billboard speech

Taylor Swift has revealed the release date for her forthcoming Netflix documentary Miss Americana.

The film, which was directed by Lana Wilson, will debut on the streaming service on 31 January, after making its official debut at this year's Sundance Film Festival on 23 January.

The news comes after it seemed uncertain whether the documentary would be released at all, after Swift became caught up in a feud with music manager Scooter Braun.

Braun, who manages artists including Justin Bieber, acquired the copyright to Swift's first six albums after buying her former record label, Big Machine Records.

He declined to license the music for use in the film – Swift also claimed he would only let her use her music if she agreed to stop talking about him in public.

Last month, Variety reported that the music rights had been cleared "in a timely manner".

Swift was recently announced as a headliner for the 50th anniversary of Glastonbury Festival.
