Carmen read an article on Vox that Taylor Swift has just announced she’ll be re-recording '1989'. 

This comes after she lost all her masters to her then-manager, Scooter Braun.

Carmen has this theory that Taylor just wants to own her own music and not be in conflict with anyone trying to take away her music. 

"Like we have seen over the years, if you don't own it, then it's not fully yours. So with these artists, it's important to own your masters (music), as the bulk of your money is received from sales attached to the music," says Carmen.

According to Sky News, Britney went on to social media to explain to her fans how she couldn't do the relationship anymore and that the only way was to settle for a divorce. 

"Guys, what's going on with Britney? Like, she was at her prime back when she started off, and now it's like she's going backwards," says Carmen. 

Hopefully she gets back into her music again, as she just released a song with Will.I.Am called, 'Mind Your Business'.
