Taylor Swift Says Scooter Braun, Scott Borchetta Are Blocking Her From Playing Old Hits at AMAs


Swift says in her posts that the Big Machine team told her she would be allowed the use of her old songs only if she agreed not to re-record them in the future — a non-starter for her, she says — and if she affirmed she would not speak negatively going forward.


Embedded in her plea to fans to make their feelings known to Braun and Borchetta is what might be referred to as burying the lead: Swift says Netflix has been working on a documentary about her for several years.


It’s a busy news day in Swift’s world: The skirmish with Borchetta and Braun almost overshadows the happier announcement made 10 hours previously that the original song she co-wrote with Andrew Lloyd Webber for the “Cats” film, “Beautiful Ghosts,” will appear on digital services at midnight.


Additionally — and this isn’t 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.


“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.
