Taylor Swift's response to learning that the man who allegedly bullied her in the past had just bought all of her music material was immediate.

Taylor Swift, who has always stayed away from controversy, posted a story on her Instagram where you can see a capture of a video call made by Justin Bieber, Martin Garrix, Kanye West and the man in question, Scooter Braun.

The successful singer let her disgust show when she found out that much of the music she has made is going into the hands of someone who hates her.

"For years I asked and begged for the opportunity to own my own work. Instead I was given the chance to sign a new deal with Big Machine Records that ensured I earned one of my albums every time I turned in a new one. I had to make the decision to leave my past behind. The music I wrote on the floor of my room, videos I thought and paid for with the money I earned playing in bars, clubs and arenas, "says Taylor Swift in the letter she posted on Tumblr.

Scooter Braun would have bought the label called "Big Machine Records" which is the label that owns the music of Taylor Swift in its earliest stage. This label belonged (before being sold) to Scott Borchetta, the American businessman who discovered Taylor Swift in her early days and was sold to Scooter Braun for $300 million dollars.

"I found out today that Scooter Braun bought all my albums. All I can think about is the incessant and manipulative bullying I received at his hands," Swift says in the letter.

Taylor Swift had parted ways with Big Machine Records due to the label not allowing her to have 100% total control of her songs in any way. After several failed negotiation attempts, Swift then decided to give in and renounced all the music she had composed in her early days and much of her recent career, since Big Machine Records owns all her musical material from 2006 to 2017.

The problem does not end here... Swift not only denounced that Scooter Braun had bullied her, but also Justin Bieber, Kanye West and even Kim Kardashian.

"Like when Kim Kardashian orchestrated a leaked phone call and Scooter and her clients organized to bully me online. Or when her client Kanye West made a pornographic music video where my naked body can be seen out of revenge. Now Scooter has taken away my life's work, the one I never had a chance to buy. Essentially, my musical legacy is about to fall into the hands of someone trying to dismantle it," probably Taylor Swift's strongest statement in her letter.

Global trending topic

Taylor Swift is currently trending worldwide, many people are sending her their words of support through the hashtag #WeStandWithTaylor.

What do you think? Do you think it's right that record companies can do this with a person's work? Personally I think this is very serious, although it is true that many of today's singers do not care much about music and their main objective is money, some do. This is a common problem, young people who are talented but who are not careful when signing contracts, it happens in music, it happens in sports, it happens in any type of business. The house never loses.
