Kelly Clarkson Offers Advice To Taylor swift Among Record Label Drama

  • ICYMI: Taylor Swift is not happy with her former record label Big Machine for selling her masters to Scooter Braun, a celebrity manager who she says has bullied her and even enlisted the help of his celebrity clients to do so
  • Kelly Clarkson seems to be Team Taylor by offering some friendly advice over the weekend as she took to social media to offer up an alternative: “@taylorswift13 just a thought, you should go in and re-record all the songs that you don’t own the masters on exactly how you did them but put brand new art and some kind of incentive so fans will no longer buy the old versions,” Kelly shared. “I’d buy all of the new versions just to prove a point.”
