Singer Taylor Swift called out billionaire financier George Soros in her ongoing feud with Scooter Braun during her Woman of the Decade award speech during Billboard’s 2019 Women in Music event.

Swift cited "toxic male privilege" in the music industry after she previously called out Braun after his company purchased Big Machine Label Group, alleging he tried to prevent her from performing at the American Music Awards.

In her speech, the singer called out George Soros, 23 Capital, and the Carlyle Group.

“This just happened to me without my approval, consultation or consent,” Swift said.

“After I was denied the chance to purchase my music outright, my entire catalog was sold to Scooter Braun’s Ithaca Holdings in a deal that I’m told was funded by the Soros family, 23 Capital and that Carlyle Group."

"Yet, to this day, none of these investors have bothered to contact me or my team directly — to perform their due diligence on their investment. On their investment in me."

"To ask how I might feel about the new owner of my art, the music I wrote, the videos I created, photos of me, my handwriting, my album designs.”

Swift continued:

“And of course, Scooter never contacted me or my team to discuss it prior to the sale or even when it was announced."

"I’m fairly certain he knew exactly how I would feel about it, though, and let me just say that the definition of toxic male privilege in our industry is people saying ‘but he’s always been nice to me’ when I’m raising valid concerns about artists and their right to own their music."

"And of course, he’s nice to you — if you’re in this room, you have something he needs.”

Anti Trump Swift said in May that her new album would have "political undertones."

The former country star's music will go in a more political direction even though dabbling in politics has done little for Swift's career in the past.

Swift declared that her new songs would feature "political undertones" in a post on Instagram that says she plans on urging her fans to register to vote and become politically engaged before the next election.

“I definitely think there are political undertones in the new music I made,” she said during an interview, according to Elle Magazine.
