      That Big Machine statement is good. I still feel that Taylor feels hurt, but she went for some other things trying to secure the best she can for herself and BM went and did the same. It's business people. It's ruthless. This should've been kept between themselves.

        Well she was 15 when she signed her first deal with them I believe?
        The big machine article has screenshots of negotiation points for a new contract and it looks like the new deal would've been that she owns all her masters, videos and photographs at once. I don't know what to believe anymore. Would be easier for me if she didn't put the Lover album promo in her statement... A mess

          I thought it was the german Scooter who purchased the rights. Would have been fun to see the Hi-NRG remixes of Taylor's songs

            Her parents and also they would have had a lawyer...

            this is not new.. news her now she is almost 30.

            She would have known better now moving forward.. everyone sacrifices something early in their career sometimes

                Sorry but it feels like she’s playing the media, saying things her fans expect her to say and acting like the little miss innocent she always tries to be. Taylor, you turn 30 in a few months. It’s time to grow up and stop playing the eternal victim.

                  Scooter's wife says Taylor was asked if wanted to buy her masters. If so, she should've bought them, she has loads of money, she can afford them.

                      I read something along the lines of the offer she had from Big Machine was that she would only get the rights to one master for each new album she put out or something weird like that.

                        I think the problem is they never offered her the masters only. She would've needed to renew her contract with them again. It's not like Scooter only bought her catalague, he had to buy the whole label. The label new that her songs were the thing that even made it worth anything.

                          Yes but in their statement, the said they offered her everything at once if she signed again.

                            Or maybe it because she wouldnt be able to afford to buy her masters outright so maybe that was a way to negotiate an equal payment out for her.

                            Taylor has money but she is NOT that rich though to be forking that money out

                              I think their statement is half true. I think Taylor's one is half true as well.

                              I think you need to combine the two and get the whole truth

                                  Perfectly legal and normal transaction, yet Taylor acts like a victim. Seems like that's her specialty (even to someone like me, who doesn't really follow news about her).

                                    Lol, Taylor girl. You're not the first artist who doesn't own the masters of your songs (and you won't be the last artist under those circumstances either). Stop playing the victim and picking up on stupid dramas every time you have a new album to release.

                                    Honestly this is just another situation where she wants to feel "special".

                                      Taylor is the bully here, she knew what she was doing with that post, trying to make herself look like a victim again, and those puppets that she has on speed dial to back her up... This woman is such a snake.

                                                Here's a good summary of what's happening so far.

                                                    I think she should have been offered to purchase her master's at a reasonable price, she's the only act that made the label be what it is. Of course, a business is a business and her master's are the label's selling point, but it's unethical when you put all the pieces together, specially to a man that has no ethical tactics. To each their own

                                                              Misogyny? In what way just because the record label ceo and Scooter happens to be men? If Scooter was a women, what would you have called this then? The whole problem is that Scooter and Taylor are not on good terms with eachother. But had Kim Kardashian bought the label, she wouldn't have been happy aswell. Nothing to do with gender.
