Selena Gomez has posted an emotional statement about her best friend, Taylor Swift.
Today, Taylor revealed that she is “blocked” from performing any of her music that was released before 2018, as the rights to the master recordings are now owned by Scooter Braun, who bought them when acquiring the record label Big Machine Records from Scott Borchetta.
Selena jumped to her best friend’s defense, saying that she is sickened by the actions of the record bosses.

“My heart is so heavy right now. It makes me sick and extremely angry. (I don’t mind if there may be retaliation) this is my opinion,” she wrote in a lengthy Instagram post.
“It’s greed, manipulation and power. There is no heart or thought of anyone elses. No respect the words my friend has written since she was a 14 year old in her bedroom”.
“You’ve robbed and crushed one of our best song writers of our time an opportunity to celebrate all of her music with fans and the world.”
Speaking about Taylor’s second album, Fearless, which was released in 2008, Selena revealed:
“I listed to Fearless before it came out and I just remember us jumping on a bed and she was just sparkling. So proud of her diary being read by the whole world.”
“So I can tell you first hand the MOST important thing to Taylor if her family, love, her fans and her MUSIC. I really hope there is a change of heart over this unfortunate situation.”
“See my best friend (or any of my friends) be constantly pulled down is the worst feeling. Taylor fights. She will never stop fighting. People grow from choices. Some will stay exactly the same. I just want a change of heart. I love you.”
Taylor claimed that the record boss was preventing her from performing her desired AMA’s set and impacting her not-yet-released Netflix documentary.
