Swift claimed Thursday that a continuing dispute with her former music label had presented a new roadblock, having been told that they would not list many songs from their past at the upcoming American Music Awards or in an upcoming Netflix documentary to use their lives, which has been in production for several years.
Swift's revelation of this latest legal issue takes months after she publicly spoke about her displeasure at a deal in which music manager Scooter Braun took control of her old catalog after acquiring her former music label Big Machine Label Group.
"I've been planning to play a medley of my hits throughout the decade on the show, and Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun have now said that I can not perform my old songs on TV because they claim that's the case I have to re-record my music before I'm allowed to do it next year, "Swift wrote.
Braun's Ithaca Holdings acquired the Big Machine Label Group from founder Borchetta at the end of June. The deal, Billboard said, had a value of $ 300 million.
"Scott Bocchetta told my team that I can only use my music when I do the following things: If I agree to record no copied versions of my songs next year (which I am both legally) allowed and rejoiced me) and also told my team that I have to stop talking about him and Scooter Braun, "Swift wrote. "The message sent to me is very clear, basically be a good little girl and shut up or you'll be punished."
CNN has asked Braun for comment.
Swift said she believes that sharing her experience "could change the profile of other artists and possibly help them avoid a similar fate."
"It's WRONG … None of these guys had a hand writing these songs, they did not do anything to make the relationship I have to my fans, so I'm asking for your help here," she wrote. "Please let Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun know how you feel about them."
Swift had been signed to Big Machine from her self-titled debut album from 2006 to 2017 before moving to the Universal Music Group.
Swift claimed to have learned of the sale only when it became public, which was controversial by Jake Basden, senior vice president of communications at the Big Machine Label Group.
Basden told CNN at the time that Swift's father, Scott Swift, is a shareholder of Big Machine Records, and that on June 25, Basden first alerted all shareholders to the upcoming deal with Ithaca Holdings.
"Out of courtesy I sent a text message to Taylor personally at 9:06 pm on June 29 to inform her before the story was published on the morning of June 30 so she could hear it directly from me," Basden told CNN. "I really doubt she woke up with the news when everyone else did."
The public dispute that followed since the sale has caused both sides to find their defenders.
In an Instagram post, Justin Bieber, who is led by Braun, turned to Swift and said, "I'm sure Scooter and I would like to talk to you and resolve the conflicts, pain or feelings that are needed be addressed. " But he also has problems with Swift making the problem public. He said to do so "to make people hate on the scooter is not fair."
"What did you try to do by posting this blog, it seems to me that it was sympathetic, and you knew your fans would bully scooters," he wrote.
Braun's wife Yael Cohen also defended herself.
In her contribution on Thursday, Swift appealed to other Braun-led artists, "who in my opinion really care about other artists and their work."
"Please ask her for help, I hope she can give some meaning to those men who have tyrannical control over someone who just wants to play the music she has written," she said. "I especially ask for help from The Carlyle Group, which has raised money for the sale of my music to these two men."
Braun also directs Ariana Grande and the Zac Brown band.
"I just want to be able to perform MY OWN music, that's it, I tried to do it privately through my team, but I could not do anything to solve it," Swift added. "Right now, my appearance at the AMAs, the Netflix documentation, and all the other recorded events I want to play until November 2020 are a question mark."
