Taylor Swift has changed her argument.
In June, Taylor Swift made a HUGE deal for Big Machine Label Group Founder Scott Borchetta for selling her masters to mega-manager Scooter Braun.
She was claiming it “grossed” her out to see her life’s work owned by “someone who tried to dismantle” her legacy.
Borchetta took to his company’s website to share his truth by firing back at Swift by claiming she knew about the deal well in advance.
He even published texts the Swift allegedly sent explaining how grateful she was to have worked with Borchetta. And she says that she wanted to explore new opportunities with a new label. She then, signed with Universal Music Group.
According to Page Six Swift, had “months” to buy back her masters, but chose to “walk away” in favor of a new deal with Universal.
“In the entire time of negotiations, she never once reached out about wanting her masters,” our source said.
Now, in Taylor Swift’s Vogue September cover story, she appears to admit she didn’t try to buy them back.
“It was either investing in my past or my and other artists’ future, and I chose the future,” Taylor Swift told Vogue of the deal she struck with UMG. The writer noted that Swift’s “whole body slumps with a palpable heaviness” upon answering the question.
“It’s so strange trying to be self-aware when you’ve been cast as this always smiling, always happy ‘America’s sweetheart’ thing, and then having that taken away and realizing that it’s actually a great thing that it was taken away,” she told Vogue, “because that’s extremely limiting.”
She added, “We’re not going to go straight to gratitude with it. Ever. But we’re going to find positive aspects to it. We’re never going to write a thank-you note.”
