Taylor Swift says she plans to re-record her songs' masters

6 Comments

Taylor Swift plans to re-record her songs after her catalog was purchased by popular music manager Scooter Braun.

"CBS Sunday Morning" previewed some of its pre-taped interview with Swift. The reporter asks Swift if she would consider re-recording her songs in order to own the new versions, and Swift said, "Oh yeah." When asked if that was the plan, Swift replied with: "Yeah, absolutely."

In late June, Braun's Ithaca Holdings announced that it had acquired Big Machine Label Group, which was led by Scott Borchetta and home to Swift's first six albums, including the Grammy winners for album of the year, 2008's "Fearless" and 2014's "1989."

Swift said last November that she signed with Universal Music Group instead of staying at Big Machine because she knew that re-signing would only result in her not owning her future work.

Braun manages Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande.

The full interview will air Sunday on CBS at 9 a.m. Eastern.

Lots of artists say that. Wanna, gonna, don't. Besides, her music is dumb faceless pap anyway. Will anyone remember her in 30 years? I doubt it.

What she calls music, is just absolutely junk!

Three things:

1) Taylor Swift is ballsy. She took on Apple and won.

2) Taylor Swift is cute as hell.

3) Taylor Swift appears to be smart and independent. I like that in her.

'Cute as hell' doesn't make her a good artist.

Shania Twain is sexy as hell. She has a pretty face, jet back hair and such a body. But she can't sing to save her life, her music is junk and that CD of hers that sold over 10 zillion copies is absolutely wretched, godawful and unlistenable.

Is Taylor Swift 'smart and independent'? She doesn't know what she wants to be. She's done a disgraceful cover video of a rap song by T-Pain. Is she 'country' or 'pop'? I say it's generic garbage and I say the hell with it. It sucks big time.
