Taylor Swift took to Twitter on Thursday to tell fans that her upcoming American Music Awards appearance and Netflix documentary may both be in jeopardy thanks to label nemeses Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta. "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," Swift tweeted in a lengthy statement. "Additionally...Netflix has created a documentary about my life for the past few years. Scott and Scooter have declined the use of my older music or performance footage for this project." She ends her post by asking fans to "let Scott Borhcetta and Scooter Braun know how you feel about this," as well as to reach out to artists who work with them. "Maybe they can talk some sense into the men who are exercising tyrannical control over someone who just wants to play the music," she wrote. Swift has been locked in a legal battle over her masters ever since Borchetta sold Big Machine to Braun this past summer. She's also said she plans to re-record her first six albums next year in order to regain control of them.
