It's easy to get distracted by all of the drama and controversy that has surrounded Taylor Swift in recent months, but it's important to acknowledge her success.
The "You Need to Calm Down" singer unleashed a devastating attack from the music industry in a long speech, and part of what she says she has endured as a woman who found "success beyond the comfort level of people".
Billionaire investors like George Soros are getting dragged into the vicious battle between pop star Taylor Swift and manager-to-the-stars Scooter Braun, who recently bought the rights to her old music.
'I spent ten years of my life trying to purchase my masters outright and was denied that opportunity, and I just do not want that to happen to other artists if I can help it.
While Taylor sought to buy the recordings from her former label, Braun refused, and she now plans to re-record her first six albums in the near future. On their investment in me. "The music I wrote, the videos I created, photos of me, my handwriting, my album designs".
"And of course he's nice to you - if you're in this room, you have something he needs".
"I will never stop until I find and I see the same number of women as men in the studio", she said.
The "Lover" singer added: "I know that it seems like I'm very loud about this, but it's because someone has to be".
Over the past year, Swift has repeatedly expressed her devotion to liberal politics, so it's surprising that she would go after a leftwing billionaire who has funded countless high-profile Democratic political campaigns. She also revealed the one thing she is most excited when it comes to entering her 30s.
Swift blamed an "antiquated contractual system" for the obstacles faced by musicians. "Ariana Grande got the award that I'm getting right now a year ago, and two weeks ago I realised that's the award I'm getting - and that really freaked me out". Then, on her actual birthday (December 13), she took the stage at Madison Square Garden during the 2019 Jingle Ball where the crowd serenaded her with "Happy Birthday".
