Bringing the issues to a head is Swift's upcoming performance at the AMAs. Even so, rumor has it, if Swift does go through with her show, the presentation will be unforgettable.
Taylor Swift's former label Big Machine Records have made a formal statement regarding letting their artists perform and not require any sort of permission to do so. This includes the upcoming American Music Awards performances.
The animosity between Swift and the two replace companions dates relieve to June when Braun bought Borchetta's Large Machine label as fragment of a $300 million deal which involves the possession of the singer's six records - from her 2006 self-titled debut album through to 2017's "Popularity". For Swift's fans, that's fantastic.
A rep for Braun did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment. In a statement released Monday, Big Machine said its artists don't need to seek approval for live performances, contradicting Swift's initial statement.
Swift wouldn't be the first artist to record "forgeries" of their biggest hits: TLC, Prince and Def Leppard have all used the tactic to regain control of their music.

He has received better offers, for sure. "Robert's work is shown on the pitch and we're happy with it". The former Barcelona boss had left the role in June after 11 months in charge due to personal reasons.
Cardi B's carnivalesque performance of I Like It has racked up 28m views on YouTube alone, for example - making that platform more valuable to her as an artist than the TV broadcast itself.
But shortly thereafter, the producers distanced themselves from the situation, saying it was between Swift and her ex-label. She also said they were not allowing her to use the music in an in-the-works Netflix documentary. "However, despite our persistent efforts to find a private and mutually satisfactory solution, Taylor made a unilateral decision last night to enlist her fanbase in a calculated manner that greatly affects the safety of our employees and their families", the statement concluded.
Taylor Swift is not a victim of Big Machine; she is a cog in the system that churns out big time distractions, including Kanye West, Katy Perry, and Kim Kardashian.
Swift has been able to leverage her position in the music industry, for her personal benefit but also in a public way that raises the profile of the issue.
