Taylor Swift says she plans to rerecord her music after failing to secure her original master recordings when talent manager Scooter Braun acquired Big Machine Records, her original label, in June. “This is my worst case scenario,” said Swift at the time. “This is what happens when you sign a deal at fifteen to someone for whom the term ‘loyalty’ is clearly just a contractual concept.” Braun’s wife, Yael, said Swift was given the chance to purchase her masters and was throwing a “temper tantrum.” (📸: Getty)
