Rolling Stone: Warren backs Taylor Swift

In pop culture, Taylor Swift v Scooter Braun is big news.

A Elizabeth Warren Comes to Taylor Swift’s Defense

Senator and presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren came to the defense of songstress Taylor Swift, who is engaged in a bitter battle with her former record label headed by Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta over ownership and rights to her old albums. Swift released a statement earlier this week saying the label was trying to stop her from performing her songs at the upcoming American Music Awards. According to Swift, she is “not allowed to perform my old songs on television because they claim that would be re-recording my music before I’m allowed to next year.”

On Saturday afternoon, Warren quote tweeted Swift’s statement and said that Swift’s work was being “threatened by a private equity firm,” adding that she has a plan to address this very issue.

Warren’s plan to address private equity firms is part of the “economic patriotism” plank of her campaign. “To raise wages, help small businesses, and spur economic growth, we need to shut down the Wall Street giveaways and rein in the financial industry so it stops sucking money out of the rest of the economy,” she wrote in a Medium post outlining her plan to end private equity’s “stranglehold” on the economy and jobs. Warren also proposed legislation, the Stop Wall Street Looting Act of 2019, that would fundamentally change how private equity can buy and sell other companies.

Earlier this week, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez also came to Swift’s defense and maligned private equity firms, saying on Twitter, “Private equity groups’ predatory practices actively hurt millions of Americans… They need to be reigned in.”
