Taylor Swift Is 'Sad & Grossed Out' That Scooter Braun Bought Her Master Recordings

Taylor Swift is reacting to the news that Scooter Braun has purchased her former label Big Machine Label Group.

It was announced on Sunday morning (June 30) that the music manager had bought the company for $300 million, including all of the master recordings from artists, past and present.

All of Taylor‘s albums and master recordings up until her soon to be released album Lover, are owned by Big Machine, and now Scooter, and the singer took to her Tumblr page to share her disgust.

“For years I asked, pleaded for a chance to own my work. Instead I was given an opportunity to sign back up to Big Machine Records and ‘earn’ one album back at a time, one for every new one I turned in,” Taylor wrote. “I walked away because I knew once I signed that contract, Scott Borchetta would sell the label, thereby selling me and my future. I had to make the excruciating choice to leave behind my past. Music I wrote on my bedroom floor and videos I dreamed up and paid for from the money I earned playing in bars, then clubs, then arenas, then stadiums.”

“This is my worst case scenario. This is what happens when you sign a deal at fifteen to someone for whom the term ‘loyalty’ is clearly just a contractual concept. And when that man says ‘Music has value’, he means its value is beholden to men who had no part in creating it,” she added.
