On Thursday, Taylor's row bubbled over once again when she claimed Scooter and Scott Borchetta -- whom she accuses of buying her master recordings out from under her -- was barring her from performing her own songs.
The singer revealed she is set to perform a medley of her hits at the upcoming American Music Awards, but claimed much of her backlog is off-limits unless she agrees to an ultimatum: Don't re-record the masters, and stop bad-mouthing the pair in public. Big Machine Records have denied Swift's claims.
The battle between the artist and the recording company is nothing new, as Sedaka will attest.
The "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do" hitmaker fought for decades against RCA over ownership of his original hits. After taking meticulous care of his voice, the now 80-year-old managed to re-record all his late '50's/early '60s hits in 1991, note-for-note.
