Taylor Swift accused Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta of blocking her from performing old songs at the AMAs
In a Thursday evening tweet, Taylor Swift revealed the latest plot twist in her feud with Scooter Braun a music mogul most frequently associated with Justin Bieber. Swif accused Braun and Scott Borchetta, who founded her former label Big Machine Records, of impeding her upcoming performance at the AMAs. Big Machine owns the masters of Swift's songs recorded before she made the switch to Universal Music Group last year. Braun acquired Big Machine Records earlier this year, along with a back catalog of Swift's music. She also wrote in the statement that Netflix was creating a documentary about her life, but claimed that Braun and Borchetta have "declined the use of my older music or performance footage for this project, even though there is no mention of either of them or Big Machine Records anywhere in the film." Swift decided to walk away from Big Machine after she wasn't able to buy back her records; instead she would have to "earn" them back one at a time for every future album she made. Swift announced this summer that she planned to re-record her albums in November of 2020 to regain ownership of her old music. The singer claimed that Braun and Borchetta would only allow her to use her music to perform at the AMAs and in the Netflix documentary if Swift agreed not to re-record versions of her songs and to "stop talking" about Borchetta and Braun. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Taylor Swift posted a lengthy statement on Twitter on Thursday adding a new plot twist in her feud with Scooter Braun, best known for managing Justin Bieber. She accused Braun and Scott Borchetta, who founded her former label Big Machine Records, of impeding her upcoming performance at the American Music Awards.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: A podiatrist explains heel spurs, the medical condition Trump said earned him a medical deferment from VietnamSee Also:Here's everyone who's running for president in 2020, and who has quit the raceSmartphones are getting weird again, and it could be a sign that the industry is on the brink of another huge changeFrom leech collectors to knocker-ups, here are 16 weird jobs that no longer exist

Everything you need to know about Motorola's new foldable Razr
Flip phones are back, baby. Motorola is reviving its most famous phone, the Razr, as a foldable smartphone with a flexible display. Not only is it surprisingly similar to the original, it might be the first foldable phone that's more than just a gimmick.  You taking notes, Samsung? The Razr won't go on sale until early next year, but but we managed to get some hands-on time earlier this week with Paris Hilton's future favorite phone. Here's what we know so far. It's not cheap While it's not as bad as Samsung's $2,000 Galaxy Fold, the new Razr does come with a hefty price tag. At $1,499, it might be a little easier to stomach compared to its foldable rival, but not by much. And if something were to happen to your new, smart Razr, like, say a crack in its foldable display, there's an additional wallet-gouging cost to replace it. But we'll get to that later.  Read more...More about Tech, Smartphones, Motorola, Razr, and Tech

San Diego's wonderful Mysterious Galaxy Books has lost its lease, needs a buyer ASAP to stay afloat
Mysterious Galaxy is a wonderful, longstanding science fiction bookstore, host to readings for the Clarion Workshop, designated bookseller for Comic-Con signings, and much more. And while the 27-year-old bookstore is profitable, with 5-10% year-on-year sales growth and mounting profits, it is still operating on thin enough margins that it is vulnerable to shocks, and now the store has lost its lease, a shock that has endangered the store's future. In an email to customers and stakeholders, owner Terry Gilman has offered the store for sale on a "turnkey" basis, seeking offers before November 20th. The store has 60 days to vacate its location and unless a new owner and location have been found by then, Southern California will lose one of its most storied, best independent bookstores, and science fiction and fantasy will lose one of its greatest, longest-standing genre bookstores. The staff of Mysterious Galaxy just received notice that they are losing their lease for their Balboa Avenue storefront, and will need to move in 60 days. It is with heavy hearts that we share that unless a new buyer and new location are found immediately, Mysterious Galaxy will be forced to close its doors. For nearly 27 years, Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore has been a vibrant part of the book community in San Diego, and a safe and welcoming place for those with a passion for books. The past several years have seen 5-10% growth in sales and increasing profits. The store's participation in regional and industry conventions, and its stellar in-store events, have earned it a special place in the hearts of authors and readers alike, and created a well-respected brand in Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, and Mystery praised throughout the publishing and bookselling industry.
