Pharrell Williams Weighs in on Taylor Swift's Masters Battle With Scooter Braun

Pharrell Williams is weighing in.

The 47-year-old “Happy” music superstar spoke about Taylor Swift‘s ongoing battle with Scooter Braun over the rights to her masters in an interview with Variety.

“There’s no other industry out there in the world where a start-up gets off the ground and doesn’t own the trademark — it just doesn’t make sense. It may be legal, but it’s still a crime. If a bank walks away with ownership of a company and the trademark, how much should a creator really be participating? The artist should always have the lion’s share of their creation,” he said of the imperative for artists to retain rights of their music.

“It’s really unfortunate, you know. There was room for [Scooter] to make his acquisition because that’s just the way the business is, and I felt for [Taylor] and not being able to be in control of it. There’s a system in place that’s just all wrong. He’s a businessman and he also represents artists, so from his point of view he’s just making an acquisition of something that he felt would be a good investment. But the artist should have the opportunity [to retain ownership], and I don’t know whether she did or she didn’t,” he said.

“I just know that the system is wired in ways that is oftentimes not always fair to the creator. I think it should be the norm that the creators retain their rights.”

At the same time, it was recently revealed that Scooter Braun sold Taylor Swift‘s masters to another entity.

Taylor Swift's Fans Think There's a Scooter Braun Reference in New Commercial with Her Re-Recorded Music

Taylor Swift has released her first piece of re-recorded music in a new commercial that was created by her friend Ryan Reynolds. Fans think they’ve found a reference to Scooter Braun in the ad!

As you probably know by now, Taylor has been in a feud with Scooter after he purchased her former record label and then recently sold her masters for $300 million.

In the Match commercial, which features Taylor‘s re-recorded version of “Love Story,” a fallen scooter is seen next to a dumpster with the number “6″ on the wall next to it.

Taylor‘s fans think the “6″ refers to the six albums that she is re-recording after they were sold by Scooter - Taylor Swift, Fearless, Speak Now, Red, 1989, and reputation.

Read the open letter that Taylor wrote a couple weeks ago after it was announced that her masters were sold.
