Kelly Clarkson tweeted her support for Taylor Swift amidst the pop star’s feud with Hollywood manager Scooter Braun and offered Swift a suggestion.
Clarkson suggested that Swift re-record the songs she doesn’t own the masters for, then use new art and an incentive to get her fans to purchase the new recordings. Clarkson also said she would buy the new versions if given the opportunity.
@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 ????????♀️

On June 30, Swift posted an open letter on Tumblr saying she felt “sad and grossed out” by her “worst case scenario,” after Hollywood manager Scooter Braun purchased Big Machine Records. The reported $300 million sale gave Braun access to Swift’s entire discography before her 2017 album “Reputation.”
The letter spawned a tidal wave of celebrity responses, with infighting between Swift’s allies and her opposition. Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato, and Sia defended Braun, while Brendon Urie, Todrick Hall, Halsey, and now Clarkson supported Swift.
In an Instagram post, Braun’s wife accused Swift of lying, claiming that the pop star was actually informed ahead of the acquisition, despite a Tumblr post claiming that she had learned of it “as it was announced to the world,” and that she “passed” on the opportunity to own her music.
Swift’s lawyer then released a statement July 2 saying that she was never given the opportunity to buy her master recordings or Big Machine Records “outright with a check.”
With over 86,000 likes and plenty of positive responses from Swift’s fans, Clarkson’s suggestion to re-record her music made an impact in the Swift fandom and beyond.
Swift did not immediately publicly respond to Clarkson’s tweet.
