Was Taylor Swift really banned from playing her hits?

In her post, the singer urged fans to "let Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun know how you feel about this". This perturbed Swift for many reasons, most of all that Braun has connections to her famous enemy Kanye West, as well as other big pop stars. Meanwhile, TMZ thinks that there could be more drama to see when speeches are delivered because Scooter's loyal client, Ariana, is - like Taylor - up for artist of the year and favorite female pop/rock artist awards at the AMAs.

A single songs insider tells Web page Six, "Taylor will change her AMA efficiency into a substantial minute, and a strong concept".

The repercussions of Big Machine owning Swift's music erupted again last week, when Swift published an emotional plea to her fans on her social media accounts, asserting that Braun was not allowing her to perform her old songs live. On Thursday, Swift alleged that Big Machine had barred her from performing any of her old catalogue in her planned medley. Swift alleged that Big Machine never offered her the opportunity to buy the company or her masters.

Swift accused tune supervisor Braun of "incessant manipulative bullying" and claimed she turned into "unhappy and grossed out" when it emerged that Braun controlled her grasp records, sooner than he claimed that he had "no malicious intent" and "did every thing aboard".

They added that "recording artists do not need label approval" for live performances.

According to Swift, her former label, Big Machine Label Group, had denied her request to play some of her older songs at the AMA's. In Swift's newest album her song "The Man" talks about the double standard held against women in comparison to men.

Cardi B's carnivalesque performance of I Like It has racked up 28m views on YouTube alone, for example - making that platform more valuable to her as an artist than the TV broadcast itself.

In response, Big Machine Label Group released a statement saying, "At no point did we say Taylor could not perform on the AMAs or block her Netflix special".

Big Machine, which is based in Nashville, Tennessee then clarified that it had "informed" the production company of its licensing approval. She also said they were not allowing her to use the music in an in-the-works Netflix documentary.

Swift wouldn't be the first artist to record "forgeries" of their biggest hits: TLC, Prince and Def Leppard have all used the tactic to regain control of their music.
