Taylor Swift Slams Scooter Braun’s
$300 Million Sale of Her Masters.
Scooter Braun has reportedly sold the master rights to
Taylor Swift’s first six albums for $300 million. .
Hours after the news broke, Swift took to social media
to reveal that she had attempted to negotiate with Braun
for the masters but never had a real chance.
According to Swift, she wasn’t even allowed to begin the purchase process unless she signed an “ironclad NDA” saying
she would never speak negatively about him again.
So I would have to sign a document that
would silence me forever before I could
even have a chance to bid on my own
work … These master recording were
not for sale to me. , Taylor Swift, via Twitter.
Swift then revealed that the company
that bought the masters, Shamrock Holdings, had
reached out for a potential partnership. .
She declined their offer upon realizing that the terms of
their purchase would continue to provide profit for Braun, something she referred to as a “non-starter.”.
I simply cannot in good conscience bring
myself to be involved in benefitting Scooter
Braun’s interest directly or indirectly … this
is a sacrifice I will have to make to keep
Scooter Braun out of my life. , Taylor Swift, via Twitter.
Swift ended her statement by saying she had
already begun “re-recording [her] older music” and that
she had “plenty of surprises” planned.
