“I want to express my heartfelt thanks to Scott Borchetta for believing in me as a 14-year-old and for guiding me through over a decade of work that I will always be proud of,” Swift wrote on Instagram. “I’m extremely grateful to get to do what I love, especially with the people I’ve been fortunate enough to work with.”
