Two weeks after Swift reacted to her “worst case scenario” of Braun agreeing to acquire Big Machine Label Group (and thus, Swift’s catalog), Clarkson took to Twitter to offer a suggestion to Swift that would allow her to “prove a point” in the wake of the development. Swift has voiced her dismay over Braun taking control of her masters in the new deal, and Clarkson addressed that by pushing her to re-record her previous work.
“U should go in & re-record all the songs that U don’t own the masters on,” she tweeted, and went on to encourage her to put a fresh spin on the material with “brand new art & some kind of incentive so fans will no longer buy the old versions.” She added that she’d “buy all of the new versions just to prove a point” herself.

@taylorswift13 just a thought, U should go in & re-record all the songs that U don’t own the masters on exactly how U did them but put brand new art & some kind of incentive so fans will no longer buy the old versions. I’d buy all of the new versions just to prove a point —-??
