Taylor Swift: Miss Americana

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

Taylor Swift is opening up in this revealing documentary, which follows the singer through the last few years of personal and professional turmoil in her life, during which she learned to “embrace her role not only as a songwriter and performer, but as a woman harnessing the full power of her voice,” according to the film’s official synopsis. The doc, which is directed by nonfiction filmmaker Lana Wilson, first debuted at the Sundance Film Festival to mostly positive reviews. In EW’s A- review, critic Leah Greenblatt notes, “It all feels appropriately intimate and on brand, a smartly calibrated glimpse into the 24-7 terrarium of modern fame. What takes Americana beyond a string of charming anecdotes though, are the revelations that make up much of the second half — most notably her poignant acknowledgment of a previously undisclosed eating disorder, and her choice, after years of increasingly conspicuous silence, to finally speak out about her political views during the 2018 midterms.” Come for the adorable cats, stay for the revelations about one of the world’s biggest pop stars. —Lauren Huff

Super Bowl LIV

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 6:30 p.m. on Fox

No matter which team wins, this year’s Big Game will be a historic Super Bowl — partially because the San Francisco 49ers could clinch a record-tying sixth championship, while the Kansas City Chiefs could win their first Super Bowl in 50 years. (Also because the New England Patriots aren’t in contention for the first time since 2016.) But mostly because Jennifer Lopez and Shakira will take the stage for the halftime show, with a performance that the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer promises will be “representing the Latinos who have struggled so much in the U.S. and who I think are going to find an important space now, feeling represented on that very important stage.” Tune in to see that, Demi Lovato performing the national anthem, another star-studded roster of commercials, and, oh yeah, a football game. —Tyler Aquilina
