So it’s Sunday evening and you’re catching up on gossip from Friday and Saturday, when suddenly! *dramatic pause* Taylor Swift has blessed the celebrity news cycle with a new
nemesis person to feud with. This time, it’s Scooter Braun, a.k.a. the guy who is basically responsible for launching Justin Bieber’s entire music career, but now Taylor apparently won’t talk to Scooter about any of it.
Not a music buff? Genuinely honest to God confused as to what is going on? Wondering why every celebrity is giving their unsolicited two cents about the situation? Don’t sweat it! Allow me to catch you up to speed real quick in case you were MIA: Taylor took to the deep dark web to make a Tumblr post (yes, it still exists) about Scooter Braun’s recent acquisition of her masters (the very first song recordings that all later copies are made from).
Taylor’s masters were made available for purchase when she left her longtime label, Big Machine Records, which housed all six of Taylor’s previous albums. And since Taylor really dislikes Scooter (she literally accused him of “incessant, manipulative bullying”), she is prettyyyyy pissed off about him acquiring her stuff, especially since it means that she probably won’t get to own any of her original music now. Which, let’s be honest, really sucks.
Since the Tumblr post seen around the world dropped, it now appears that Scooter has taken the steps to try and mend whatever friendship scraps they have left, if any. Smart on his part, because who would really want Swift as an enemy? According to Variety and The Blast, though, multiple sources report that Scooter wants to talk with Taylor one-on-one, but she’s allegedly denying his request. We stan the queen of all petty queens!
The Blast says that Scooter “reached out through mutual friends Monday morning to engage in a ‘mature and private’ phone call with Swift.” Sources close to the deal also stated that he wants to discuss why he chose to purchase her masters in the first place Apparently, “the main reason he purchased her catalogue is because he believes in her music and in her future.” Sure, Jan!
I don’t know about you, but I can literally hear the gears for TS8 already turning. Knowing Taylor, she’ll likely devote a few songs, if not an entire album, to this drama. Was Reputation not a success?
