Celebs are speaking out amid Taylor Swift's battle to obtain her album collection.

In case you missed it, the Grammy winner took to Tumblr on Sunday to react to the news that Scooter Braun (manager of Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato) had made a deal to acquire Big Machine Records, the label under which Swift released her first six award-winning albums. In her heartfelt post, Swift said she felt "sad and grossed out" by the move.

"For years I asked, pleaded for a chance to own my work. Instead I was given an opportunity to sign back up to Big Machine Records and 'earn' one album back at a time, one for every new one I turned in," Swift explained. "I walked away because I knew once I signed that contract, Scott Borchetta would sell the label, thereby selling me and my future. I had to make the excruciating choice to leave behind my past. Music I wrote on my bedroom floor and videos I dreamed up and paid for from the money I earned playing in bars, then clubs, then arenas, then stadiums."

"Some fun facts about today's news: I learned about Scooter Braun's purchase of my masters as it was announced to the world," she continued. "All I could think about was the incessant, manipulative bullying I've received at his hands for years."

Swift went on to add, "Thankfully, I am now signed to a label that believes I should own anything I create. Thankfully, I left my past in Scott's hands and not my future. And hopefully, young artists or kids with musical dreams will read this and learn about how to better protect themselves in a negotiation. You deserve to own the art you make."

Since Swift's post went up, stars like Halsey, Cara Delevingne, Brendon Urie and Bieber have spoken out about the news. Let's take a look at the celeb reactions to T.Swift's message.
