Apparently, Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta are not in the same headspace over this Taylor Swift situation.
Taylor recently called out both Braun and Borchetta all over again when she claimed her former record Big Machine was not letting her perform her old songs at the AMAs. She is being honoured with Artist of the Decade and wanted to perform a medley of her old hits.
Braun purchased Swift’s catalogue of music from Big Machine’s Scott Borchetta for $300 million. However, Braun is not happy with Borchetta right now. A source told E!, “Scooter is frustrated because his name is being dragged in the mud. He doesn’t run Big Machine or have operational control of company. He hasn’t taken part in these negotiations.”
The source also added, “This fight with Taylor is not something Scooter agrees with.” Apparently, Braun has been trying to reach the 29 year old singer via call but she is not receiving his calls.
She said via social media, “Guys – It’s been announced recently that the American Music Awards will be honoring 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 be re-recording my music before I’m allowed to next year.”
She continued, “Scott Borchetta told my team that they’ll allow me to use my music only if I do these things: If I agree to not re-record copycat versions of my songs next year (which is something I’m both legally allowed to do and looking forward to) and also told my team that I need to stop talking about him and Scooter Braun.”
“I feel very strongly that sharing what is happening to me could change the awareness level for other artists and potentially help them avoid a similar fate. The message being sent to me is very clear. Basically, be a good little girl and shut up. Or you’ll be punished,” she continued.
Many artists have spoken up in support of Swift.
