Taylor Swift reveals how she has been spending quarantine

Taylor Swift has been listening to old music at home during quarantine.

The superstar had been set to close Glastonbury this summer as the headline performance during the 50th anniversary of the UK's biggest annual festival which has also been canceled due to the ongoing global COVID-19 crisis.

The 30-year-old singer revealed she has been taking some time to play old music and spending her days cooking and watching classic movies while the world has been advised to stay at home due to the global health crisis.

She told PEOPLE: "I love spending a full evening cooking a meal while sipping a glass of wine and listening to old music."

The star previously told SiriusXM: "A lot of people have been watching lots and lots of TV in this time of quarantine. I have actually been going back and watching old films that I hadn’t seen before.

"I went and watched – I actually hadn’t seen 'Rear Window' and if you haven’t seen that film go check it out. It’s got Grace Kelly, it’s phenomenal, it’s [by] [Alfred] Hitchcock."

Meanwhile, Swift spoke about Big Machine Records revealing they were releasing an album of live performances of her old songs.

The 'Lover' hitmaker has been embroiled in a public feud with her former record label boss after he sold Big Machine records to Scooter Braun and handed her master recordings with it, which he now has the rights to.

Swift has addressed the recent news that her old tracks are set to be rereleased on the new LP.

In a lengthy statement posted to her social media accounts, she shared: "I want to thank my fans for making me aware that my former record label is putting out an 'album' of live performances of mine tonight.

"This recording is from a 2008 radio show performance I did when I was 18. Big Machine has listed the date as a 2018 release but they're actually releasing it tonight at midnight.

"I'm always honest with you guys about this stuff so I just wanted to tell you that this release is not approved by me. It looks like Scooter Braun and his financial backers, 23 Capital, Alex Soros and the Soros family and The Carlyle Group have seen the latest balance sheets and realised  that paying $330 MILLION for my music wasn't exactly a wise choice and they need money."
