Throughout her entire career, Taylor Swift has always been open with her fans about her life.

But come to find out, she has had her secrets.

One of them getting much attention at the moment is her admission that she has, in fact, battled an eating disorder.

“I thought that I was supposed to feel like I was going to pass out at the end of a show, or in the middle of it,” Swift states in her new documentary Miss Americana, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on Thursday (Jan. 23.). “Now I realize, no, if you eat food, have energy, get stronger, you can do all these shows and not feel (enervated).”

And in an interview with Variety shortly after the film’s premiere, Swift talked about the revelation further, adding that she wasn’t entirely sure about how she felt going public with it.

“I didn’t know if I was going to feel comfortable with talking about body image and talking about the stuff I’ve gone through in terms of how unhealthy that’s been for me — my relationship with food and all that over the years,” she tells Variety. “But the way that Lana (Wilson, the film’s director) tells the story, it really makes sense.”

Miss Americana will debut in select theaters and on Netflix next Friday (Jan. 31.)
