Taylor's just posted a statement to social media, detailing yet again how Scott and Scooter are absolute trash. In short, she is unable to perform a medley at the AMAs where she willl receive artist of the decade, and she is unable to use any old music in an upcoming Netflix documentary.

QUOTE
Guys - Itís been announced recently that the American Music Awards will be honoring me with the Artist of the Decade Award at this yearís ceremony. Iíve been planning to perform a medley of my hits throughout the decade on the show. Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun have now said that Iím not allowed to perform my old songs on television because they claim that would be re-recording my music before Iím allowed to next year. Additionally - and this isnít 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.
Scott Borchetta told my team that theyíll 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 Iím 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 youíll be punished.
This is WRONG. Neither of these men had a hand in the writing of those songs. They did nothing to create the relationship I have with my fans. So this is where Iím asking for your help.

Please let Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun know how you feel about this. Scooter also manages several artists who I really believe care about other artists and their work. Please ask them for help with this - Iím hoping that maybe they can talk some sense into the men who are exercising tyrannical control over someone who just wants to play the music she wrote. Iím especially asking for help from The Carlyle Group, who put up money for the sale of my music to these two men.
I just want to be able to perform MY OWN music. Thatís it. Iíve tried to work this out privately through my team but have not been able to resolve anything. Right now my performance at the AMAís, the Netflix documentary and any other recorded events I am planning to play until November of 2020 are a question mark.
I love you guys and I thought you should know whatís been going on.
Taylor

It's just f***ing awful, imagine building a legacy like Taylor's that's pretty much unparalleled, writing or co-writing ALL of it and you can't even perform what you want of YOUR art.

The fact they won't let her perform her own music that she herself wrote because if it's live it will be like she is re-recording the songs is just petty bullshit because in reality, they are two sexist arseholes who just want the girl to "do what we say and shut up"

The amount of females that are slamming Taylor on twitter is actually disgusting lmao.

Itís horrible how theyíre trying to control her the way that they are and I really hope more artists speak out because so many of her ďclose friendsĒ always seem to remain quiet.

This is such a wtf kind of story because I just think itís so wrong that this can actually happen!

Iíd understand it if Scott and Scooter had been a part of the writing process but itís shocking what theyíre doing! I hope Taylor can get her rights to her own music back and hopefully sheíll be able to perform at the event too! She deserves to own what sheís creating and a lot of people bashing her donít understand that sheís a VERY prominent writer / figure in everything she does, she doesnít rely on others input to get to where she is. One of the smartest women in the business for sure.

People are probably gonna call for my permaban for this but I think this is less of a gender issue (like what people seem to believe it is) and more that thereís ZERO LOGIC in Scott/Scooterís reasoning + this ideology that higher ups own all of an actís artistic property. Like sheís performing a medley for godís Sake. And thereís no confirmation of a studio version ever being recorded for said medley. So I donít get where the ďlive performance = youíre re-recording your musicĒ Logic is coming from. Thereís no need to be this territorial, like it ainít that deep drama.gif

And this is the guy who managed Ariana??? does not compute
