Taylor Swift Says Scooter Braun Doesn't Understand Her Connection to Her Music

Taylor Swift sits down for an interview with Elvis Duran And The Morning Show on Friday morning (August 23) in New York City.

During the interview, the 29-year-old singer opened up about owning her master recordings for the first time with her album Lover.

“It’s mine! She’s mine, fully mine,” Taylor said. “I’m happy to take full ownership of this album. It’s not just from a business perspective, it’s like your heart belongs in that art you made. And the person who bought my art, he’s never made any art in his life, so he doesn’t know what it’s like. He could never understand that personal connection. When you make something and then someone buys it out from under you… I don’t think that a lot of people understand that’s how our business works. They think we own what we make.”

“I think it’s interesting to get that out there. There are so many people who want to be musicians and they need to learn these things because I didn’t know these things when I was a teenager,” she said.

If you weren’t aware, music mogul Scooter Braun purchased Taylor‘s previous label Big Machine Label Group for $300 million and he now owns her previous master recordings.
