Taylor Swift Finally Allowed To Perform Her Old Songs At AMAs
She has been angry at Big Machine and Scooter Braun over ownership of the masters of her first 6 albums. The Lover songstress, also claimed last week, that BM was withholding permission for her to sing her old hits, but the label fired back saying she can perform anything she wants during a live broadcast.
TMZ sources said that wasn’t enough because Dick Clark Productions which produces the AMAs and rebroadcasts/repurposes the show, has to get permission from BM. Then on Monday, BM announced it worked out a licensing deal with Dick Clark Productions so Taylor could sing all her old songs.
Taylor’s people have complained that there couldn’t be an agreement without notifying her camp in writing of the licensing agreement. All these events occurred on Monday.
It is being said, that Taylor may not have enough time to incorporate the old songs in her performance, because such rehearsals take at least a month. However, being that she told her fans last Thursday she had been planning to perform her old songs, we can assume she rehearsed them, right?
Also, according to TMZ, Taylor wasn’t rehearsing in L.A. this past weekend. She was at her apartment in London so it would seem she’s locked and loaded.
