Taylor Swift says she is being prevented by her former label, Big Machine Label Group, from singing most of her own songs at the upcoming American Music Awards show.
The pop star wrote on Twitter last week that Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun had told her she’s “not allowed to perform my old songs on television because they claim that would be re-recording my music before I’m allowed to next year.”
Swift also told her fans that she is also being blocked from using the songs in an upcoming Netflix documentary about her life.
However, Big Machine Label Group said it was “shocked” by Swift’s claim.
The label responded to Swift’s allegation with a detailed clarification, which said, “At no point did we say Taylor could not perform on the AMAs or block her Netflix special. In fact, we do not have the right to keep her from performing live anywhere”.
Big Machine insisted that Since Taylor’s decision to leave the label last fall, “we have continued to honor all of her requests to license her catalog to third parties as she promotes her current record in which we do not financially participate.”
“The narrative you have created does not exist,” it added.
