  • Taylor Swift has responded to news that Scooter Braun sold her the master rights to her first six albums to an investment fund.
  • In a lengthy note to her fans, Swift says Braun wouldn't let her bid for her music until she signed "an ironclad NDA," barring her from saying a negative word about him ever again.
  • According to Swift, this kind of requirement is "NOT normal" and thusly, she believes Braun would have never sold her master recordings back to her.
  • She also confirmed that she knew about Braun's sale to Shamrock Holdings, but declined a partnership with the fund, due to Braun's ability to profit from the deal.
  • For "transparency and clarification," she even shared the letter she sent to Shamrock Holdings in October, in response to news that Braun planned to sell her masters.
  • "I have recently begun re-recording my older music and it has already proven to be both exciting and creatively fulfilling," she wrote. "I have plenty of surprises in store."
