Instead I was given an opportunity to sign back up to Big Machine Records and ‘earn’ one album back at a time, one for every new one I turned in,” Swift told her fans in the message “I walked away because I knew once I signed that contract, Scott Borchetta would sell the label, thereby selling me and my future I had to make the excruciating choice to leave behind my past. Music I wrote on my bedroom floor and videos I dreamed up and paid for from the money I earned playing in bars, then clubs, then arenas, then stadiums ” Ahead of the 2019 American Music Awards, where Swift is set to received the Artist of the Decade Award, the singer took to social media to reveal that she’s being blocked from performing her old hit songs “Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun have now said that I’m not allowed to perform my old songs on television because they claim that would be re-recording my music before I’m allowed to next year,” Swift wrote “Additionally – and this isn’t the way I had planned on telling you this news – Netflix has created a documentary about my life for the past few years Scott and Scooter have declined the use of my older music or performance footage for this project, even though there is no mention of either of them or Big Machine Records anywhere in the film ” People close to the show are telling E!
