Taylor Swift begs for help as she reveals she’s ‘banned’ from performing her OWN songs putting AMA’s performance at risk

TAYLOR Swift begged fans for help on Thursday as she revealed she may not perform at the AMAs after being BANNED from singing her own songs.

Taylor, 29, said she may also have to put other projects – including a previously undisclosed Netflix doc – on hold because of a bitter row over her old hits.

She blasted: “Right now my performance at the AMAs, the Netflix documentary and any other recorded events I am planning to play until November 2020 are a question mark.”

Taylor said she had planned to play a medley of her hits when she’s named Artist of the Decade at the American Music Awards on November 24.

But the men who own the music, Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta of Nashville label Big Machine, are calling the TV performance an illegal re-recording – in breach of their copyright.

In an explosive statement on social media, the Bad Blood singer wrote: “I just want to be able to perform MY OWN music. That’s it.

“I’ve tried to work out this out privately through my team but have not been able to resolve anything.”

It’s the latest episode in an ongoing feud between Taylor and music manager Scooter Braun, who now controls the master recordings of her hit songs up to 2018.

He came into their possession after buying Borchetta’s Big Machine Label Group for $300million in June.

Taylor had been signed to the music firm until last year, when she switched over to The Universal Group to release her seventh album, Lover.

The $360million chart-topper has regularly spoken out about the aftermath of the buyout to call for greater rights for music artists.

She said she feels like the two men have treated her with disdain, effectively telling her to “be a good little girl and shut up – or you’ll be punished”.

Taylor also said in the posts that Borchetta has told her he will allow the projects to go ahead if she stops trashing the two men.

And he wants her to drop plans to record copycat versions of her older songs next year, she claimed.

Swift says she still plans to re-record the tracks and has the legal right to.

Braun, Borchetta and the AMAs have yet to comment on Taylor’s bombshell disclosures.

But a Big Machine insider told TMZ the company has tried repeatedly to reach out to the star so they can “bury the hatchet” – but she has refused, they claim.

And she apparently admits owning the company $7million, according to the source.

Taylor called on her legion of fans to put pressure on Braun and Borchetta to allow her performance and other projects to go forward.

That ignited social media, with the hashtags “IStandWithTaylor” and “FreeTaylor” trending worldwide on Twitter.

She also urged her fellow artists – including Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber, who are managed by Braun – to speak out.

Taylor said shes especially asking for help from the Carlyle Group – the private equity firm that financed the sale of her old record label.

The Netflix documentary, which has chronicled the last few years of her life, was previously unannounced.

Taylor said: “This isn’t the way I planned on telling you this news.”
