Taylor Swift has been at war with Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun of Big Machine Records for the rights of his old music and now, he's opening up on the current situation more than ever! The singer mentioned that, if it had been announced beforehand, she would have paid a lot of money to buy the masters of her six albums.
As you will remember, Taylor previously went to Tumblr to inform the world that Scooter Braun had bought his old label and, with him, the masters of all his songs!
Taylor hit the man, saying he was "disgusted,quot; that he would do something like that with Borchetta's help.
Years For years I even asked for the opportunity to own my personal work. Instead, they gave me the opportunity to re-sign with Big Machine Records and & # 39; win & # 39; one album at a time, one for each new one he delivered. I walked away as I knew once I signed that contract, Scott Borchetta would. sell the label, selling me and my future & # 39 ;, explained Taylor.
And now, in an interview he gave Billboard, Taylor talked more about the musical battle.
He also stressed that he is trying to shed light on injustices in the industry so that things like that do not happen in the future to other artists.
Spent I spent ten years of my life trying to buy my teachers directly and they denied me that opportunity, and I just don't want that to happen to other artists if I can avoid it. I just want to at least raise your hand and say: & # 39; This is something that an artist should be able to win over the course of his deal, not as a renegotiation ploy, and something that artists should have the first right to refuse to buy . & # 39; & # 39;
The superstar even exclaimed that "God, I would have paid so much for them! Anything to own my job that was a real selling option, but they didn't give it to me."
