Taylor Swift has posted a new statement, claiming that her legal wrangles with Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta are preventing her from performing her own music.
It's a day of mixed fortunes for the singer - new single 'Beautiful Ghosts' is online now, part of the soundtrack for the new film version of Cats.
Invited to perform at the American Music Awards, her planned performance intended to include some classic Taylor Swift hits.
Sadly, her ongoing legal difficulties with Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta are preventing this, and also impeding a new Netflix documentary.
She explains: "The message being sent to me is very clear. Basically, be a good little girl and shut up. Or you’ll be punished."
Taylor writes: "I feel very strongly that sharing what is happening to me could change the awareness level for other artists and potentially help them avoid a similar fate".
She finishes: "I just want to perform MY OWN music. That’s it."
Check out the statement below.
