  • Taylor Swift Says Soros Family Funded Deal to Buy Her Music

    12/13/2019 12:31:21 PM PST · by Drew68 · 70 replies
    Pop superstar Taylor Swift slammed music industry manager Scooter Braun on Thursday after he reportedly bought the rights to her music with what she claims was funding from the family of left-wing billionaire George Soros. Swift made the remarks during her acceptance speech for Billboard’s Woman of the Decade award Thursday evening, calling out the “unregulated world of private equity coming in and buying our music as if it’s real estate — as if it’s an app or a shoe line.”Braun, 38, recently purchased the independent record label Big Machine and the master rights to Taylor’s first six albums, which...

    Kanye West tweeted a heavily marked-up bible verse on Sunday night, and fans could not help but notice he posted it right as Taylor Swift was winning the Artist of the Decade Award at the AMAs. The rapper has a complicated history with Swift and with award shows, but he is putting all of his focus and energy on his spirituality this days. Fans wondered what Sunday's selection was meant to say. West posted a picture of a bible page on Sunday night in the middle of the American Music Awards of 2019. The book was open to Daniel 3:27,...

    Justice for Taylor Swift! Yeah, now that's a cause that your average working American can get behind. And it is also a cause taken up by presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren which has resulted in widespread mockery. Okay, the mockery hasn't quite reached the levels inspired by the reaction to her hyping of a DNA test last year that revealed that Warren is maybe 1/1024 Native American but it is up there. Warren tweeted her support for Swift in the multi-millionaire's contractual dispute with other millionaires that we should somehow care about as reported by Variety on Saturday in, "Elizabeth Warren Backs...

    Pop superstar left-wing activist Taylor Swift has been accused of whipping up her fan base in a calculated way that is endangering the employees of her old recording label, which is currently embroiled in a bitter feud with the singer. Big Machine Records said that it was attempting to privately resolve its ongoing dispute when the singer decided on Thursday to air her grievances to her millions of social media followers. What followed is a war of words that has escalated to dramatic effect in less than a day. “Despite our persistent efforts to find a private and mutually satisfactory...

    Taylor Swift will be heading to the Middle Kingdom to kick off the biggest shopping event in the world next month. The 29 year old singer has been confirmed to perform at Alibaba’s 11.11 Countdown Gala at Shanghai's Mercedes-Benz Arena on November 10, per Alizila. Swift will be joined by a number of Chinese performers such as G.E.M., Hua Chenyu, Kana Hanazawa, Ju Jingyi, Li Ronghao, Luo Yunxi, Jackson Yee, Zhang Jie and Zhang Yixing. The news of Swift's confirmation comes as the Chinese government has come under fire over the country banning South Park following an episode that was...

    In a Rolling Stone interview, Taylor Swift said she has a newfound obsession with politics. “Really, I keep trying to learn as much as I can about politics, and it’s become something I’m now obsessed with, whereas before, I was living in this sort of political ambivalence because the person I voted for had always won,” Swift said. "We were in such an amazing time when Obama was president because foreign nations respected us. We were so excited to have this dignified person in the White House. I think a lot of people are like me, where they just didn’t...

    In May the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives passed sweeping new civil rights protections for LGBT Americans. The Republican-controlled Senate has yet to act, however, and supporters of the legislation - including pop star Taylor Swift - are getting frustrated. The Equality Act, as it's called, expands workplace, education and public accommodation protections that currently prohibit discrimination based on race, gender and disability to include sexual preference and gender identity. The federal law would nationalise legal safeguards that are currently afforded to varying extent in only 22 states and the District of Columbia. In the remaining states, it is legal for...

    The Chinese state propaganda outlet Global Times cited the words of pop superstar Taylor Swift in an attack on President Donald Trump on Monday after she accused him of “gaslighting” his opponents into questioning their own love for the country. In a piece titled “Why Are the Chinese Brushing Aside Trump’s Tweets?” opinion writer Mu Lu tries to downplay Beijing’s reported concern at Trump’s warnings against China last week, when he ordered American companies to immediately leave China and move their production back to the United States. “The vast amounts of money made and stolen by China from the United...

    Taylor Swift’s father deleted his personal Facebook account after the singer’s fans complained conservative-leaning memes were posted on his page. (snip) “The IRS has returned my tax return to me this year after I apparently answered one of the questions incorrectly… In response to the question, ‘Do you have anyone dependent on you?’ I wrote: ‘9.5 million illegal immigrants, 1.1 million crack heads, 3.4 million unemployable scroungers, 80,000 criminals in over 85 prisons plus 650 idiots in Washington’. The IRS stated the answer I gave was ‘unacceptable!’,” the meme stated. (snip) He also posted a meme mocking Sen. Elizabeth Warren...

    Country and pop singer superstar Taylor Swift vowed to become more political earlier this year, which left many "Swifties," as her fans are called, wondering how she would go about doing that. It turns out, being more political simply means kowtowing to the leftist mob and being anti-Trump and showing support for abortion. Ahead of her newly released album, Lover, Swift sat down with The Guardian to discuss her newfound political agenda. In short, she said she has become disillusioned with America and its values. This s particularly due to President Donald J. Trump and Republicans, she said. She claimed...

    To say that a highly-publicized Taylor Swift appearance on Fox’s 2019 Teen Choice Awards failed to save the award show from a ratings catastrophe would be quite the understatement. After hitting a record low in the ratings last year, the Teen Choice Awards collapsed Sunday night with a 28 percent freefall in total viewers and an incredible 50 percent drop in younger viewers, aged 18-49. Hoping to boost the night’s ratings, left-wing diva Taylor Swift landed the inaugural Icon Award. But Swift’s cynical move to embrace divisive politics has obviously dented her mass appeal and, by extension, her popularity. In...

    Pop superstar Taylor Swift has explained her decision not to endorse Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election, arguing that Donald Trump was successfully weaponizing the concept of “celebrity endorsements” and would portray the pair as “the two nasty women.” In a lengthy interview with Vogue, Swift admitted that she did not believe her endorsement would help Hillary’s campaign, despite widespread pressure on her to do so.

    Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris may have put the Taylor Swift block vote in jeopardy, thanks to holding a fundraiser at Swift archrival Scooter Braun’s home in Los Angeles on Saturday night. The Swifties recoiled at the news of the fundraiser at Braun’s Brentwood home. He’s been enmeshed in a feud with the singer over ownership of her back catalog, which he acquired by buying the Big Machine Record Group, which included her early albums. The singer’s fans have since demonized him, even though he insists he gave her opportunities to acquire the catalog. Braun is a longtime supporter of...

    The Cats movie released its official trailer on Thursday, which lead to wildly divisive reactions on social media as fans had their claws out, ready to tear this to shreds. Taylor Swift stars as Bombalurina, who is seen in her tight catsuit as she sprinkles cat nip on the floor, with a cast that includes James Cordon, Judi Dench, Jason Derulo, Idris Elba and Jennifer Hudson. Despite the star-studded cast, fans were sour on the bizarre look of the Broadway adaptation.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), a 2020 presidential candidate, on Thursday signed pop star Taylor Swift's petition asking for support for the Equality Act, which seeks to protect LGBTQ Americans from discrimination. "It’s 2019 and our LGBTQ+ friends continue to face discrimination at work, school, and in their communities," Warren said in a statement. "Enough is enough. I’m proud to represent Massachusetts in the Senate, a state that has led the nation in protecting and promoting equality. But there’s so much more work to be done. We can start by passing the Equality Act," she added. The Democratic-controlled House voted...

    Taylor Swift was once apolitical — famously so. That changed in October 2018 when she made a bold and rare move to support Democratic nominees in the midterm elections. At the stroke of midnight on June 1, 2019, which kicked off LGBTQ Pride Month, Swift released an open letter to one of her senators, Tennessee’s Lamar Alexander, in support of the Equality Act and in rejection of President Donald Trump’s stance on the matter. “I personally reject the President’s stance that his administration, ‘supports equal treatment of all,’ but that the Equality Act, ‘in its current form is filled with...

    Pop megastar Taylor Swift revealed in a recent interview that she has no plans to give up her political activism mere months after her failed effort to help elect former Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen (D) to the U.S. Senate. “I definitely think there are political undertones in the new music I made,” Taylor Swift told the German publication RTL. “I’m not planning to stop encouraging young people to vote and to try to get them to talk about what’s going on in our country. I think that’s one of the most important things I could do.” In October 2018, Swift...

I’m going to do more to help. We have a big race coming up next year," she wrote.
