Taylor Swift who has initially called Scooter Braun a “manipulative bully” and that claimed she was “grossed out” out after the music manager acquired the masters to her first six albums in June of 2019. Taylor has now accused Scooter and Big Machine Label Group’s founder/Taylor’s former label boss, Scott Borchetta, of banning her from performing a medley of her OG hits at the AMAs.
Taylor in a tweet wrote, “Guys — it’s been announced recently that the American Music Awards will be honouring me with the Artist of the Decade Award at this year’s ceremony. I’ve been planning to perform a medley of my hits throughout the decade on the show. Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun have now said that I’m not allowed to perform my old songs on television because they claim that would bere-recording my music before I’m allowed to next year.”
Taylor was signed onto Big Machine Records when she was just 15 but left them in 2018, only to join Republic Records and Universal Music Group. Tayor also further stated “Additionally – and this isn’t the way I had planned on telling you this news — Netflix has created a documentary about my life for the past few years. Scott and Scooter have declined the use of my older music or performance footage for this project, even though there is no mention of either of them or Big Machine Records anywhere in the film.”
