Taylor Swift has had a stressful time recently...
All the way back in 2008, Taylor Swift signed a 10-year deal with a record company called Big Machine.
Last year, she left Big Machine (and founder, Scott Borchetta) and signed with Republic Records.
The problems started over the weekend when it was announced that Big Machine was being purchased.half of country music.
So basically, Taylor owns all of her music going forward, but Big Machine owns all the music she put out before 2019.
Everything changed when it was announced that Big Machine was being bought by Scooter Braun's company, Ithaca Holdings.Tumblr.
Here's what she had to say:
"All I could think about was the incessant, manipulative bullying I’ve received at his hands for years."revenge porn music video which strips my body naked. Now Scooter has stripped me of my life’s work, that I wasn’t given an opportunity to buy. Essentially, my musical legacy is about to lie in the hands of someone who tried to dismantle it."
"This is my worst-case scenario."
"When I left my masters in Scott’s hands, I made peace with the fact that eventually he would sell them."
"Controlling a woman who didn’t want to be associated with them. In perpetuity. That means forever. "
"You deserve to own the art you make."
Okay, so that's already a lot.
So Taylor feels wronged by Scooter's clients and feels like he orchestrated a lot of the drama in her life.

Starting with Justin Bieber. And his apology/defense is a long one.
What were you trying to accomplish by posting that blog?
It seems like they're both hurting in their own ways.
But Taylor's friends also had her back.

It was a messy period for the music industry.
Even though the album got mixed reactions, she was proud.
But recently, things took a devastating turn...
Her mom has been diagnosed with a brain tumor.

In an emotional interview with Variety, she revealed this:

"And the symptoms of what a person goes through when they have a brain tumor is nothing like what we've ever been through with her cancer before. So it's just been a really hard time for us as a family."
This forced her to limit her upcoming tour dates.

"Everyone loves their mom... Everyone's got an important mom..."

Andrea Swift previously kicked cancer's butt.

She wanted you to know why she may not be at as many shows this tour. She's got an important battle to fight."
But she has now relapsed.

"It's taught me that there are real problems and then there's everything else. My mom's cancer is a real problem. I used to be so anxious about daily ups and downs. I give all of my worry, stress, and prayers to real problems now."
It's a very difficult time for the singer.
