Democratic lawmakers weighed in on the weekend controversy after Swift accused the founder of Big Machine Label Group Borchetta and his partner Braun, who purchased recordings of her first six studio albums for $ 300 million in July, from blocking her from performing of her music.

Swift claimed on Thursday that Borchetta and Braun had refused her permission to perform a planned medley of her biggest hits at the American Music Awards next Sunday, where she should receive Artist of the Decade, and permission to use her old songs two years in the making on a Netflix documentary.

She also called the Carlyle Group, the private equity company that allegedly invested in the Braun company, Ithaca Holdings, & # 39; which set up money for selling my music to these two men & # 39 ;.

Both Ocasio-Cortez and Warren seized the aspect of the private equity company to respond to Swift's claims.

The predatory practices of & # 39; private equity groups & # 39; millions of Americans have been actively hurting. Their leveraged buy-outs have destroyed the lives of store employees across the country and cut more than 1 million jobs. Now they are holding onto @ taylorswift13's own music. They must rule, & # 39; two-year freshman Rep Ocasio-Cortez Friday.

Warren joined the fight on Saturday and tweeted: & # 39; Unfortunately, @ taylorswift13 is one of many whose work has been threatened by a private equity firm.

Warren and Ocasio-Cortez are among the growing list of high-profile names who have spoken out in support of Swift after she made the last allegations in her escalating feud with Borchetta and Braun.

The star made headlines in the summer after Borchetta – who owns Swift's original Big Machine Label Group label – sold the rights to her earlier material to Braun, the powerhouse of the music company who also manages Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber.

Swift pulled the feud back into the public spotlight with her post on Thursday, entitled: & # 39; I don't know what else to do. & # 39;

In it she wrote: & # 39; Boys – It was recently announced that the American Music Awards will honor me with the Artist of the Decade Award during the ceremony this year.

& # 39; I intend to perform a medley of my hits throughout the decade of the show. Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun have now said that I cannot perform my old songs on television because they claim that this would re-record my music before I can next year.

& # 39; In addition – and this was not intended to tell you this news – Netflix has made a documentary about my life in the past few years. Scott and Scooter have refused the use of my older music or performance recordings for this project, although none of them is mentioned in the film or Big Machine Records. & # 39;

Swift decided by encouraging her fans to let & # 39; Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun know what you think about this & # 39 ;.

Various celebrities, including Gigi Hadid, Selena Gomez, Camila Cabello, Halsey and Lily Allen expressed their support when the hashtag #IStandWithTaylor went viral.

& # 39; Scott and Scooter, you know what to do, & # 39; tweeted Hadid Thursday. & # 39; Taylor and her fans deserve to celebrate the music !! & # 39;

On her Instagram story page, Halsey wrote a detailed piece about why she disagreed with the business tactics that Swift described.

& # 39; We are not just looking at a terrible business move (because someone would be encouraged to let Taylor perform her songs because it would be direct to rediscover a catalog that they are currently benefiting from ???) but this is just mean. & # 39; Halsey said. & # 39; This is punishment. This helps her to remain silent about things by dangling them above her head. & # 39;

The Without Me singer, who also sang Taylor & # 39; s Mean on her Instagram story, pointed to the lack of power in the situation between the artist and the executive.

& # 39; These people are protected because they evoke complicity in fear & # 39 ;, she said. & # 39; Trusting the illusion that people will not stand up for her. That the world will say that it is exaggerating. You bark the wrong tree.

& # 39; It is her grace and patience that currently make her the artist of the decade. & # 39;

Selena Gomez – who used to go out with Scooter & # 39; s customer Justin – said: & # 39; My heart is now so heavy.

& # 39; It makes me sick and extremely angry. (I don't mind if there can be retribution) this is my opinion. & # 39;

She further said: & # 39; this is greed, manipulation, power. & # 39;

Camila Cabello has also shared a long note. She said: & # 39; I can't wrap my head how this could happen. A record label may not do this to an artist … whatever must be done to remedy this situation must happen. & # 39;

Tinashe wrote in response to Swift's message: & # 39; F *** that. We are with you, "adding the situation: it really makes me really sick."

Singer Jordan Pruitt also joined the dispute and wondered if the business tactics that the men would use to suppress the outspoken artist were legitimate.

& # 39; The things that @scottborchetta + Scooter Braun continue to do to @ taylorswift13 are not only wrong, they must also be illegal! & # 39; she wrote. & # 39; You & # 39; men must focus your attention on things other than bullying the artist of this CENTURY. LEAVE TAYLOR ONLY. PERIOD &. # 39;

The Hills star Spencer Pratt apparently referred to the lack of more artists who deny the alleged actions of Braun and Borchetta: & # 39; & # 39;

The Echosmith group, actor Alan Cumming, actress Rachel Zegler and YouTuber Ricky Dillon were among those who supported the singer amidst the professional struggle.

Big Machine Label Group has said that the latest claims from Swift are based on & # 39; false information & # 39 ;.

The label was reportedly forced to close its Nashville headquarters early on Friday in the midst of & # 39; direct and hostile death threats to company employees & # 39 ;.

TMZ reported Thursday that Big Machine sources said that Scott and Scooter & # 39; have extended an olive branch to Taylor and have asked her to sit down with them and try to bury the ax & # 39 ;.

The source claimed: & # 39; she plainly refused, threatening if she didn't give her exactly what she wanted, she would go to the public and tell people to attack Big Machine as well as Scott and Scooter & # 39 ;.

The insider added that Swift & # 39; has admitted that it owes the label more than $ 7 million and has not paid more than a year & # 39 ;.

Allegedly they also claimed that they owed the label masters and video content.

DailyMail.com has contacted representatives for Braun and Borchetta, but did not receive an immediate response.
