The performance was scheduled to be a melody of her greatest hits, however, Swift said on Thursday that the new owner of her older music, Scooter Braun, and the founder of her former record label Scott Borchetta, are preventing her from performing her older songs.
Swift said the duo are also preventing her older music from being used in a Netflix documentary that has been in production the past few years. Swift says that she will only be allowed to access her master recordings if she agrees to not record new, copycat versions of her old songs and stops mentioning Braun and Borchetta by name.
“The message being sent to me is very clear. Basically, be a good little girl and shut up. Or you’ll be punished. This is WRONG. Neither of these men had a hand in the writing of those songs, she said.
