Over the past few weeks, Taylor Swift has been battling to hold rights to her music. Ever since she learned that Ithaca Holdings LLC acquired the Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta's Big Machine Label Group, Taylor has been constantly working toward owning her music. She took to Tumblr a few months ago to call Braun and left the music industry divided. The controversy escalated weeks before the American Music Awards 2019. She called out the company for not allowing her to perform her own songs at the awards show. The music label and Taylor's battle ended with Taylor attaining permission to perform her songs. 

Now, in a new interview with British Vogue, she touched upon the importance of writing your own songs and its connection to owning your work. The singer sat down to discuss the making of the Beautiful Ghosts song for her upcoming movie Cats, which was originally composed by Llyod in 1981 when she emphasised up ownership. 

While she did not elaborate or take names during the interview, she mildly reminded people that she hasn't forgotten about her battle. “I think [writing] is really important – also from the side of ownership over what you do and make. Even if you aren’t a natural writer, you should try to involve yourself in the messages you’re sending," Taylor said. 

Apart from referring to her controversy, Taylor also spoke about how every time she performs a song, the meaning differs. "I was really singing a lot at that point – I’d just come from a stadium tour, and then did Cats, which was all based on live performances – so a lot of that album is nearly whole takes. When you perform live, you’re narrating and you’re getting into the story and you’re making faces that are ugly and you’re putting a different meaning on a song every time you perform it," she added. 

Apart from her music, Taylor also spoke about the weirdness of cats. Read all about it here: Taylor Swift reveals if she will ever consider acting and why she loves the 'weirdness' around Cats
