Taylor Swift Is Planning a 'Fierce, Empowering' AMAs Performance Amid Battle With Former Record Label (Report)

Taylor Swift is reportedly planning to do it big at the 2019 American Music Awards.

The 29-year-old singer-songwriter is plotting a “fierce show of female artistic strength and empowerment” sources told Page Six on Tuesday (November 19) amid her ongoing battle with Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta of her former label Big Machine Records regarding the use of her old recordings after their acquiring of her masters.

According to the report, she will “fight back against Braun in both her much-anticipated performance and in a speech,” and could even be joined by close friends including Selena Gomez, Kesha and Halsey.

Taylor will turn her AMA performance into a huge moment, and a powerful message. We are expecting to see artists such as Selena join her on stage as part of a fierce show of female artistic strength and empowerment. Then, when accepting her award, Taylor will likely make a statement about artists being able to own their masters, the music they created, and how she feels she has been treated by Scooter and Scott [Borchetta, the founder of Swift’s former label Big Machine],” the source went on to explain.

Taylor has not yet commented on her upcoming performance. There has been controversy over the last few days after Taylor Swift told fans that Big Machine was blocking her from performing her old music at the AMAs on November 24.
