A Tough Situation

Taylor Swift made headlines again when she posted a lengthy statement on social media saying that Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta, the current and former bosses of Big Machine Records, were blocking her from playing her old songs that she recorded at the label during her upcoming AMA performance.

"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."

"The message being sent to me is very clear. Basically, be a good little girl and shut up. Or you'll be punished."

Coming To Her Friends' Defense

Some of Swift's celebrity friends came to her defense, and no one went to the mat harder for her than her best friend, Selena Gomez. She posted a lengthy tribute to her friend on social media.

My heart is so heavy right now. It makes me sick and extremely angry. (I don’t mind if there may be retaliation) this is my opinion. It’s greed, manipulation, and power. There is no heart or thought of anyone else. No respect for the words my friend has written since she was a 14-year-old in her bedroom.

You’ve robbed and crushed one of our best song writers of our time an opportunity to celebrate all of her music with her fans and the world.

I have known Taylor for 13 years. She is the most dedicated, fearless, fiesty [sic], strongest woman I’ve ever known. People can say bitch but what I’m saying to you is that’s called a woman with true identity and strength who takes no shit."

Memories From Long Ago

Gomez continued, bringing up a lovely story about listening to one of Swift's early albums and the joy that comes from making music.

"I listened to Fearless before it came out and I just remember us jumping on a bed and she was just sparkling. ✨ -so proud of her diary being read by the whole world. Nervous of people not liking it… but that became one of the biggest records - an album that saved so many young woman who felt alone.

Have a broken heart. Who were healing. Those who felt invisible. Gave a voice to those who didn’t know that they had one all along. Believing in dreams again. I continued to see how she has constantly challenged her self to create a beautiful life that belong to just her."

She Will Continue To Support Taylor

Gomez wrapped up her post by saying that Swift will always have her back, no matter what, and to let fans know that they will never stop fighting for their right to be heard.

"So I can tell you first hand the MOST important thing to Taylor is her family, love, her fans, and her MUSIC. I really hope there is a change of heart over this unfortunate situation.

Seeing my best friend (or any of my friends) be constantly pulled down is the worst feeling. Taylor fights. She will never stop fighting. People grow from choices. Some will stay exactly the same. I just want a change of heart. I love you."
