Big Machine Fires Back at Taylor Swift, Claims Issue With AMAs “Does Not Exist”

Big Machine fired back at Taylor Swift on Friday after she accused her former label of blocking her from performing her old hits at the American Music Awards or using them in an upcoming Netflix doc. “At no point did we say Taylor could not perform on the AMAs or block her Netflix special. In fact, we do not have the right to keep her from performing live anywhere,” the company said in a statement. “Taylor, the narrative you have created does not exist. All we ask is to have a direct and honest conversation. When that happens, you will see there is nothing but respect, kindness and support waiting for you on the other side.” They also accused Swift of “contractually owing millions of dollars and multiple assets to our company, which is responsible for 120 hardworking employees who helped build her career,” and of making “a unilateral decision last night to enlist her fan base in a calculated manner that greatly affects the safety of our employees and their families.” Swift had claimed Thursday night on social media that “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.” She also said, “Scott and Scooter have declined the use of my older music or performance footage for [the Netflix] project.”
