VoiceTaylor Swift is not staying silent over the sale of her masters to Scooter Braun.
In a scathing Tumblr post Sunday, the pop superstar wrote that she is sad and grossed out that her music catalog belongs to Braun, whom she accuses of subjecting her to years of incessant and manipulative bullying, referencing clashes with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
Taylor Swift vents over sale of her music catalog
“This is my worst case scenario,” Swift wrote on Tumblr.
Braun's Ithaca Holdings announced Sunday that it is acquiring Big Machine Label Group, which released all of Swift's studio albums and owns her masters. Swift said she learned of the sale Sunday.
Swift left Big Machine and signed with Universal Music Group in November because she said she knew that re-signing with the group that had managed her since she was 15 would only result in her not owning her future work.
“When I left my masters in (Big Machine Label Group founder Scott Borchetta's) hands, I made peace with the fact that eventually he would sell them,” she wrote. “Never in my worst nightmares did I imagine the buyer would be Scooter.”
She wrote that Braun had “stripped her” of her life's work and that she “wasn't given an opportunity to buy.”
“My musical legacy is about to lie in the hands of someone who tried to dismantle it,” she writes.
Representatives for Braun and Borchetta did not immediately respond to a request for comment about Swift's post.
