Taylor traces her life story with New York gig

Grammy-winning pop superstar Taylor Swift used her songs to highlight various phases of her career at the Prime Day Concert here, from starting off as a country singer to getting inspired by things around her, to an apparent dig at American entrepreneur Scooter Braun, with whom her ongoing feud is only too well known, reports mid-day.

The live concert incidentally marked her first public appearance since she got embroiled in a battle with Braun over his purchase of Big Machine Records, a label through which she launched her career. As part of a $300-million deal, Braun now owns master recordings for six of Swift's albums.

Swift picked songs from the same catalogue for the Prime Day Concert, which was held on Wednesday here.

Anticipation was high as fans waited excitedly to watch her perform. They welcomed her with a loud cheer as she took to the stage with a bit of sparkle -- thanks to her purple-black sequined romper.

She opened her performance with Me! before taking the audience down memory lane with Blank space, Love story and "I knew you were trouble".

What stood out, though, was the bits of information she shared during her gig. She reminded the audience that she started off as a country singer before performing "Love story". She then expressed her love for New York before strumming her guitar for an acoustic version of "Welcome to New York", and also opened up about the complexities of love.
