    • Variety magazine is reporting that Scooter Braun has sold the masters of Taylor’s first six albums to a private equity company called Shamrock Holdings.
    • He just acquired the catalog 17 months ago and reportedly got more than $300 million for it.
    • After news of the sale, Taylor tweeted that her team attempted to enter into negotiations with Braun to get the music back but she would have to sign a document that would silence her forever before she could even have a chance to bid on her own work and that he would never even quote her a price.
    • She also added, “I have recently begun re-recording my older music and it has already proven to be both exciting and creatively fulfilling. I have plenty of surprises in store.”
