Taylor Swift’s public feud with music industry executives Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun carry oned Thursday when she claimed on social media they were “exercising tyrannical control” and blocking her from polish off her old music at the American Music Awards, where she will be honored with the Artist of the Decade Award on Nov. 24.

Swift addressed her devotees in a lengthy post titled: “Don’t know what else to do,” asking them to let Borchetta and Braun know how they manipulate about this:

“Guys — It’s been announced recently that the American Music Awards will be honoring me with the Artist of the Decade Accord at this year’s ceremony. I’ve been planning to perform a medley of my hits throughout the decade on the show. Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun demand now said that I’m not allowed to perform my old songs on television because they claim that would be re-recording my music in the future I’m allowed to next year.”

Swift also said in the post that Netflix had made a documentary about her passion and that Borchetta and Braun did not allow the use of her old songs for this project as well.

“Additionally — and this isn’t the way I had planned on telling you this good copy — Netflix has created a documentary about my life for the past few years,” Swift wrote. “Scott and Scooter have faded the use of my older music or performance footage for this project, even though there is no mention of either of them or Big Gadget Records anywhere in the film.”

In her statement, Swift said Borchetta told her team they would be allowed to use her music alone if she agreed to not re-record copycat versions of her songs next year — “which is something I’m both legally allowed to do and looking cheeky to,” she added. “The message being sent to me is very clear. Basically, be a good little girl and shut up. Or you’ll be punished.”

Taylor apostrophize b supplicated on her fans to help her, and signed off her post by saying: “I love you guys and I thought you should know what’s been successful on.”

“Scooter also manages several artists who I really believe care about other artists and their creation. Please ask them for help with this – I’m hoping that maybe they can talk some sense into the men who are burdening tyrannical control over someone who just wants to play the music she wrote. I’m especially asking for help from The Carlyle Assortment, who put up money for the sale of my music to these two men,” her statement said.

Borchetta and Braun’s representatives, and The Carlyle Group, did not immediately empathize with to a request for comment.

Back in July, Taylor Swift’s lawyer denied she was given an opportunity to buy back her masters from Big Appliance Label Group, as Borchetta has claimed.

The fight, which led to the #WeStandWithTaylor hashtag trending on Twitter, began when Braun’s company, Ithaca Holdings, divulged it will acquire Borchetta’s Big Machine Label Group. Swift began her career at the label, where she remained until she emblemed with Universal Music Group in Nov. 2018.

After the acquisition was announced, Swift took to Tumblr, calling the acquisition — which numbers the handing over of her first six albums — her “worst case scenario.”
