The 29-year-old singer wants to prevent Scooter Braun, who recently purchased her former record label Big Machine, from owning the rights to her master recordings of her first six albums.

She apparently disputed the "fair" part of his deal, saying "I left my past in Scott's hands and not my future". Never in my worst nightmares did I imagine the buyer would be Scooter. He knew what he was doing; they both did.

Swift first opened up about the acquisition in a lengthy Tumblr post in June, saying it made her "sad and grossed out".

Mr Braun manages Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande. "Since Taylor wrote her own songs, she owns her own publishing..." The ordeal dragged out for a couple of days, but somewhere in there, fans and friends of Swift's suggested she start over.

It's not clear how immediate this decision might have been, but the plan is one that fellow singer-songwriter Kelly Clarkson suggested on Twitter in the wake of the news of the sale. Determined to regain control of her music, Swift chose to re-record the songs - she hasn't specified how many - which would allow her to hold the new masters. When asked if that was the plan, she replied: "Yeah, absolutely".

Former Vice-President Biden has dropped his first television ad in Iowa, and it touches on his strongest selling point. Trump said on Sunday that "there's something going on at Fox" and that his "worst polls have always been from Fox".

She wouldn't be the first. In fact, it's common practice by record labels as they feel they're taking a risk in investing in new talent.

The new interview, which will air Sunday (August 25) at 9 a.m. ET on CBS, will show Swift at home and in the studio where she speaks about the Big Machine buyout, growing up in the music business, about her new music video and album.

As a songwriter, Taylor is in a unique position against other artists - leading fans to wonder why any of this is an issue at all, considering that, as a writer, she would own her music.

Starting on Friday, superfans will be bombarded with music and images from Lover.

Taylor confirms she plans to re-record her earlier songs, but an entertainment lawyer tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that it may not be as simple as it sounds.
