Sheryl Crow has admitted she doesn't know why Taylor Swift kicked up such a fuss over the ownership of her masters during her Scooter Braun feud earlier this year.

During a recent visit to Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, a caller asked Sheryl Crow what she thought of the drama, considering she recently signed to the label herself. I live with my head in a big hole and I stay out of that world.

Her answer was a bit different from what you would expect, "As someone who's been in the music industry for three decades, it's not unusual for masters to change ownership numerous times". "So I don't know what the big stink was. I'm kind of out of the loop, so I don't really know".

The Soak Up the Sun singer confessed she doesn't understand "what the big stink was" about Taylor not owning her masters because "that's just the way the business goes"!

Swift was one of Big Machine's first signings when she was a teenager, but when music producer and manager Scooter Braun purchased the label in June, it gave him the masters for her first six albums, which she had been trying to buy back for years.

"I had to make the excruciating option to go away powering my past".

Its interesting, most artists like Sheryl have shown their support to Swift saying that artist's should have the right to own they own masters.

"I don't really care about owning my masters or not".

Hours after Swift said she was "grossed out" by Braun's acquisition of Big Machine Label Group and her catalog, Borchetta responded with his own lengthy statement on the label's website, essentially accusing Swift of bending the truth. And hers is 100 percent of it.

In an interview with CBS Sunday Morning, which aired last month, the Grammy victor, 29, said she first learned of the new partnership "when it was online" - at home and in the studio.

However, she added, 'Never in my worst nightmares did I imagine the buyer would be Scooter, ' adding that both Borchetta and Braun, 'knew what they were doing'.
