Taylor Swift has said her performance at the upcoming American Music Awards (AMAs) is in doubt because she is being barred from performing her own songs.

In a message to fans on social media, the singer said music managers Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta would not let her perform songs from her past albums, which they own the rights to.


I think the real issue here is one of brinkmanship, Taylor has enjoyed the trappings of mainstream success but seems to have put little thought into securing her position, the same thing happened to Paul mcCartney and he spent years trying to buy back the rights to his own works, it seems if you simply sign the first peice of recording industry paper in front of you promising vast wealth you only have yourself to blame , perhaps a smaller slice of the contractual pie offering a bigger slice of the overall ownership of the work is the more long term approach.

the loss of her music is not a loss at all... shes a plastic paid-for 'pop star' like many that have been forgotten before her... shes also a real bitch... ...yes i realize this is a messed up deal but that's what happens when you sell your body and soul to the music (especially pop music) industry....

Stripes how can you stand to read that fake news website  :shocked:

I wouldnt give Swift the time of day if I met her in the street but this statement from her copyright holder record label big machine makes it clear shes not being completely dishonest.

Quote
Big Machine’s owners expressed shock over her public statements, though they stopped short of denying the substance of her claims in a carefully worded statement of their own sent to media outlets.

“As Taylor Swift’s partner for over a decade, we were shocked to see her Tumblr statements yesterday based on false information. 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,” the company said.

Please note the use of weazel words contained in this statement.

They state they cant stop her performing live on any platform or show etc and yes thats the case if shes delivering NEW materials they dont own the rights to, so in part they are half honest, Pay further attention to the specific use of the word "LIVE" within this context, this in essence clearly indicates shes not to use any of the older NON-live materials such as stuff from her own back catalogue, this statement clearly shows the truth of the matter despite being crafted to mislead most non legally trained eyes.

Clearly they both need to get around the table and agree something and Its an own goal revenue wise in going public with a bog standard contractual dispute as this is but to move ahead both sides need to remain honest,
