Taylor Swift's statement Scooter Brown and Scott Borchett by Big Machine blocking her from performing her own songs in the AMAs is a complete fabrication … according to the record company … who thinks she has made a calculated move to harm her people.
Big Machine says she was shocked by Taylor's comments Thursday and denies ever saying she couldn't participate in the show or block. her Netflix special. He adds … "In fact, we have no right to prevent her from performing live anywhere."
To be honest, Swift never said that BM was stopping her from performing … she specifically stated that she was keeping her from performing her own songs and using her own songs and frames to perform in a Netflix documentary .
Big Machine also claims that Taylor has been acknowledged to owe the company millions of dollars and says it is optimistic the two parties are working to resolve the problem.

Label added. .. "Taylor, the story you created does not exist."
Despite the denial of the Big Machine, Swift's friend Selena Gomez has a 100 percent back. Selena says she is "sick and extremely angry." over the situation and blames the label of "greed, manipulation and power."
Gomez tells BM … "You robbed and smashed one of our best songwriters of our time the opportunity to celebrate all your music with fans and around the world." She continues to praise Swift's character, talent and power. .. and says he knows Taylor won't stop fighting.
Halsey echoes many of the same thoughts, accusing BM of making a great business move and being vile and vindictive. She says the label deals with people who don't stick with Taylor … but says she's "barking at the wrong tree."
