Probably the headline you never expected to see: “Taylor Swift Calls Out George Soros.”

Has Taylor Swift become a Republican? Well, not exactly.

Apparently influencing politicians and trying to fundamental transform criminal justice by funding district attorney races across the country aren’t the only things Soros is involved in.

Swift blasted Soros and the Carlyle Group for what she claims is enabling the exploitation of her music.

Swift said Soros’ backing enabled music executive Scooter Braun to purchase the rights to her music catalog without her consent. That has prevented her from performing her own songs.

For example, she was unable to perform a selection of her songs at the American Music Awards because Braun wouldn’t allow it.

From Free Beacon:

“The fact is that private equity enabled this man to think, according to his own social media post, that he could ‘buy me.’ But I’m obviously not going willingly,” Swift said while accepting the Woman of the Decade award at Billboard’s “Women in Music” event.

“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 said.

“Yet to this day, none of these investors have bothered to contact me or my team directly to perform their due diligence on their investment, on their investment in me. To ask how I might feel about the new owner of my art, the music I wrote, the videos I created, photos of me, my handwriting, my album designs,” she continued.

Ironic that. Democrats have empowered this guy, he’s one of their biggest donors. And suddenly you found you don’t like what he’s doing? Join the rest of us.

As Free Beacon observes, Swift was basically apolitical up until 2018, when she came out and backed a Democratic Senate candidate against Sen. Marsha Blackburn in Tennessee. Blackburn won.

Swift said she would continue to fight to be able to get her rights to her music back.
