Life Taylor Swift and Scooter Braun again in the clinch By weekster Posted on November 17, 2019 2 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Taylor Swift (29) is not allowed to play her own music during a performance she will give at the American Music Awards later this month. According to the singer, Scooter Braun (38) and his business partner Scott Borchetta have forbidden her. “I just want to be able to play my own music” Scooter Braun, the manager of Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande, bought record label Big Machine Records in July, making him the owner of almost all of Taylor’s music. The singer claims that this is part of a many-year campaign campaign by Scooter. On Thursday evening, Taylor posted a long post on her social media, explaining that she wanted to perform a medley of her work during the AMAs, where she is honored with the Artist of the Decade Award. “This is just wrong. These men were not involved in writing those songs. I just want to be able to play my own music.” In the post, she asks fans to comment on the issue. “Scooter is also the manager of some artists I know they care about their peers. Please ask them for their help in this matter.” The 29-year-old says she’s on the clock to help others. “I share what happens to me because I think it will raise awareness among other musicians and save them the same fate. The message being sent is clear: be a good girl and shut up, otherwise you will be punished.” In the statement, the singer also announces that Netflix has been working on a documentary about her life for years. Her old music cannot be heard there either.
