Taylor Swift returned to the spotlight once again on Wednesday as she took center stage to headline the inaugural Amazon Prime Day concert held in New York City.
During her performance, the 29-year-old singer donned a captivating purple bodysuit that accentuated her well-toned legs. The outfit was designed with long sleeves, while her signature long blonde hair was left to fall freely with fringes resting on her forehead. In addition to showcasing her incredible vocals, Taylor also played her famous pink guitar and belted out some of her greatest hits. During her introduction to the song Shake it Off, she sounded a cautionary note about the deceitful and dishonest people in the world.
Found the perfect outfit: During the performance, the individual, who is 29 years old, looked absolutely breathtaking in a purple bodysuit, complete with matching shorts and long sleeves.
Be cautious: During the introduction of her popular track Shake it Off, she gave a warning about the dishonest people in the world. The remark was seen by many as a jab at Justin Bieber’s manager, whom she publicly criticized at the end of the previous month. The pop star revealed that she found out through the press that Braun had obtained Big Machine Records, her recording label for over a decade, and thus her music catalog. She further accused him of “manipulative bullying,” resulting in a “he-said-she-said” public dispute. According to a source, Taylor has no regrets expressing her thoughts about Scooter obtaining her music catalog and wanted to share her truth with her fans. Although those on Scooter’s side have denied her claims of ignorance of the exchange, her attorney has recently reaffirmed that Scott Borchetta never granted Taylor Swift the opportunity to purchase her masters or the label directly with a check, as he is apparently now doing for others.
Some people interpreted this as a not-so-subtle criticism aimed at the manager of Justin Bieber, who was recently publicly called out by this person at the end of last month.
In a recent controversy, the singer/songwriter claimed that she found out through the press that Braun had bought her record label, Big Machine Records, along with her music catalog that she had been associated with for 12 years. She accused him of using manipulative tactics to bully her. Despite the back and forth accusations between the two parties, it seems like Taylor is having the last laugh as Forbes recently declared her the highest earning celebrity of 2018. Her Reputation tour was the highest grossing tour of all time, and her upcoming album Lover is expected to help her climb the list again next year. Taylor has already released two songs from the album, both of which have been successful on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. The first single, Me!, had the biggest jump ever on the charts, climbing from 100 to 2 in a single week.
