- Singer Taylor Swift has reached out to her fans in her battle with Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta
- Borchetta is the founder of her old label, Big Machine Label Group, and Braun just bought the label
- The two men are not allowing her to perform her old songs for her Artist of the Decade performance
Briefly.co.za reported that Taylor is receiving the Artist of the Decade award at the American Music Awards taking place on 24 November.
They are also forbidding her to use her old songs or performances in her Netflix special.
Big Machine Label Group owns a grand total of six of Taylor's albums. That is a vast majority of the work she has done in her career.
Taylor reached out to her fans to explain the situation and ask for their assistance in an emotional post on Twitter.
She wrote, "I've been planning to perform a medley of my hits throughout the decade on the show.
"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."
Regarding the Netflix special, she said, "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."
She continued, "I just want to be able to perform MY OWN music. That's it."
She asked her fans to, "Please let Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun how you feel about this."
Her fans quickly rallied behind her with Perez Hilton even asking if it would be wrong to share Borchetta and Braun's phone numbers.
Others felt that she should let the situation go, as she is obligated to abide by the contract she signed.
The post has garnered almost 700 000 likes so far.
