The 29-year-old singer/songwriter – who has just released her seventh studio album Lover – revealed that her public feud with Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West, which inspired many of the tracks on her sixth record ‘Reputation’, helped to make her stronger. Speaking to a radio Taylor said, one thing that the ‘Reputation’ era of my life did for me is that it taught me that I can live my life without public approval and still have a really wonderful life and still want to make music for my fans.
Taylor performed six tracks, London Boy, Lover, The Archer and You Need To Calm Down from her latest album, a cover of Phil Collins, Can’t Stop Loving You and ‘Holy Ground’ from her fifth album Red. And the updated version of ‘Holy Ground’ could give fans an insight into what they can expect when the star re-records her old albums after Scooter Braun acquired the rights to her masters when he bought Big Machine Records.
Speaking about her devastation at Scooter buying her old record label, she said, I choose to look now at the positives of going in and rerecording all my albums. I get to go back and revisit these moments of my life.. If you’re the writer of your own music, it’s the only way that your rights can’t be taken away from you in the music industry.
