There’s a feud between Singapore and neighboring government officials — and it’s all down to Taylor Swift.

Ahead of the pop star’s six sold-out shows in the city-state, which kick off on Saturday, a lawmaker in the Philippines has criticized the exclusive deal that Singaporean authorities reportedly brokered with her to ensure that she wouldn’t take The Eras Tour to other territories in the region.

On Wednesday, Philippines representative Joey Salceda called on the Philippines’ Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) to protest against the grant the Singapore government authorized in exchange for Swift agreeing not to perform elsewhere in Southeast Asia during her sold-out world tour, local media reported.

“Some $3 million in grants were allegedly given by the Singapore government to AEG to host the concert in Singapore. The catch was that they do not host it elsewhere in the region,” Salceda said, according to The Straits Times.
