Taylor Swift wants to regain control of her old music catalog from Braun

More than 35,000 Taylor Swift fans have already signed a petition to let the megastar perform her old songs. Earlier this year, music mogul Scooter Braun, whom Swift describes as a “bully,” purchased the rights to Swift’s entire music catalog, including all of the songs on her first six albums.

A Taylor fan named Jade Rossi started a petition titled, “Let Taylor Swift perform/use HER art.”

“On Taylor Swift’s personal social pages, it has been made clear Scott Borchetta sold her work to Scooter Braun in a strange revenge tactic, and now they are quite literally holding HER artwork hostage. They refuse to let Taylor perform or use her music, the music she wrote, under any circumstances UNLESS she gives up the right to rerecord her old albums as well as stop using their names, which is gross and almost blackmail,” Rossi wrote. “Not allowing her to use her music in any projects is manipulative and power hungry, all over music SHE WROTE.”

The petition is available at Change.org, where fans can let the Carlyle Group, which now owns the rights to Taylor Swift’s music, “that we, as listeners and fans and consumers, will not stand for this.”

Meanwhile, Swift called out Scooter Braun on Twitter, posting a link to the petition with the headline, “Don’t know what else to do.”
