Taylor Swift calls out GEORGE SOROS for investing into her music ‘without consent’
In a speech following her acceptance of the Billboard Woman of the Decade award on Thursday, Swift reignited her feud with investor Scooter Braun, who bought up Swift’s original record label – Big Machine Label Group – in a $300 million deal earlier this summer.
“After I was denied the chance to purchase my music outright, my entire catalog was sold to Scooter Braun’s Ithaca Holdings in a deal that I’m told was funded by the Soros family, 23 Capital and the Carlyle Group,” Swift told the Los Angeles crowd.

“This just happened to me without my approval, consultation or consent,” she said, blasting the “unregulated world of private equity coming in and buying our music as if it’s real estate, as if it’s an app or a shoe line.”
23 Capital is a financing firm backed by Soros Fund Management. Soros also invested $100 million in the Carlyle Group in 1993.Also on rt.com Trump is bad: Taylor Swift has a 'brave' 'political awakening'
Soros has funded a range of feminist and gender-related causes around the world, but the acquisition of her back catalog without consulting her, Swift said, is “the definition of toxic male privilege in our industry.”
@taylorswift13 do u realize that the party u follow (Dems) support the Soros globalist agenda? U not having the rights 2 your own music is just the tip of the iceberg. I sure don't want my rights taken away from me by those w/a globalist agenda which Democrats & RINOs support.— MMLW (@MMLW61) December 14, 2019
Soros’ involvement in the multimillion-dollar deal is unclear. It is also unclear why Swift would go after a man held in such high regard by her liberal peers. Soros funds Democratic politicians, judges, and district attorneys in the US, and bankrolls pro-immigration and open-borders causes in his native Europe. Swift, after being hounded by critics for remaining apolitical, emerged as a full-fledged liberal last year.
After Taylor Swift announced she will do everything in her power to see @realDonaldTrump doesnt get reelected, I wouldnt care if Soros took everything she had. Learning thru your pocket book is the best lesson possible https://t.co/v7zbNJIb8N— Trumps PR Man (@tomtomokie) December 14, 2019
Since endorsing two Democratic candidates in the 2018 midterms, Swift has attacked President Donald Trump for his supposed autocratic impulses, and vowed to “do everything I can” to stop him being re-elected next year.
or maybe that's the reason she "supporters" those movements?— LilRodneyDangerfield (@LilRodneyDanger) December 13, 2019
Soros shares Swift’s goals. However, their shared political beliefs evidently mattered less once Swift realized that Soros apparently loves cold, hard cash more than he loves his ideological bedfellows.Also on rt.com Soros gifts $5.1 million check to Democrats as he enters 2020 funding game
