What a wonderful way to round off an epic week!! As you’ve likely heard by now, the songstress accepted the Woman of the Decade award at Billboard’Women In Music event on Thursday night, and touched on far more than just music in her speech.

Describing the past ten years as “magnificent, happy, free, confused, sometimes lonely but mostly golden,” the Grammy Award winner acknowledged Braun’s deal to buy the rights to her master recordings which happened without her “approval, consultation, or consent.” She explained:

“Let me just say that the definition of the 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 rights to own their music. Of course he’s nice to you. If you’re in this room you have something he needs. The fact is that private equity enabled this man to think, according to his own social media post, that he could ‘buy me.’ I’m obviously not going willingly. Yet the most amazing thing was to discover that it would be the women in our industry who would have my back and show me the most vocal support at one of the most difficult times and I will never, ever forget it. Like ever.”

Here’s hoping 30 is your best year yet, Tay!!
