Seeking solace: Taylor Swift, 30, shared a photo on social media sitting in an old-fashioned cabin, saying “not much is happening right now” after Scooter Braun sold the masters of his first six albums on Monday.
Sitting in the old-fashioned space on a small sofa, calm-looking Taylor rested her chin on her hand.
In the black-and-white photo, she was wearing a pair of jeans and a plaid sweater with her hair tied back.
Eagle eye fans rushed to connect the dots when they saw her caption, as the folk singer posted a selfie in April with the same caption before releasing her hit single vest.
This may be the way Taylor is annoyed that new music will be out soon.
After being a relative mother on social media after the daunting news of her sold-out masters, she was slowly coming back, although she was largely a MIA in the spotlight lately.
Opponents: Swift and Brown have been at loggerheads since 2019, after the longtime Bieber manager bought the rights to his masters last June, while subsequently trying to control his music catalog.
Speaking: Taylor turned to Twitter to explain her sale as she hit Brown and his heartless sale
Speaking about selling her old music, Swift said Brown’s team was trying to get her to sign an NDA banning her from talking badly about him, even though she had been at war for more than a year.
“So, I will have to sign a document that will silence me forever before I even have the opportunity to bid for my own work,” she said, while justifying the unusual nature of the contract.
“My legal team said it was absolutely NOT normal and they had never seen such an NDA be presented unless a prosecutor in an attack had to be silenced and paid,” she wrote.
Silent: “So, I’m going to have to sign a document that will silence me forever before I can even bid for my own work,” she tweeted as she recounted details of the sale.

She continued: “He would never even offer a price to my team. These recordings weren’t for sale to me, “while she said she knew about the sale of her early Brown albums to the Shamrock Holdings equity fund.
Claiming that this was the “second time” that her music had been sold “without her knowledge”, the Shamrock team was barred from contacting her prior to the sale at Brown’s request.

“My contract says that from November 2020 – so from next year – I can record albums from 1 to 5 again – I’m very excited about that. … I think artists deserve to own their work. I just feel very passionate about it, “she said in an interview with CBS in 2019.
Longtime manager Justin Bieber and Swift have been at loggerheads since 2019, after Brown bought his masters in an attempt to control his music catalog.
Subsequently, she tried to prevent her from performing at the American Music Awards in 2019, where she received the “Artist of the Decade” award, the founder of Brown and Big Label Records Scott Borcheta tried to prevent her from performing old songs.
Rewrite: Under his original contract, Taylor now has the right to rewrite all his old albums, as he strives to own all his music.

Swift was recently named songwriter at the second annual Apple Music Awards.
“I couldn’t reach out and touch someone’s hand in the front row, I couldn’t take pictures with fans, so that means a lot to me,” she said.
“My songwriting and the way fans react to the songs I write, and some back-and-forth dialogue, and that kind of emotional exchange, are what I feel really supports me this year,” she concluded.
Songwriter of the Year: This week she was named Apple Music Awards songwriter, “I couldn’t reach out and touch someone’s hand in the front row, I couldn’t shoot with fans, so that means a lot to me,” she said.
