Justin Bieber Seems to Support Scooter Braun Again Amid Taylor Swift AMAs Battle

It looks like Justin Bieber is once again taking Scooter Braun‘s side in his manager’s ongoing battle with Taylor Swift over whether she’s allowed to perform her old songs during the American Music Awards or not.

The 25-year-old “Sorry” pop star posted a screenshot on his Instagram Story on Friday (November 15).

The screenshot is of a TMZ article, called “Taylor Swift Free To Play All Her Hits During AMAs … Big Machine Can’t Stop Her.”

In the article, Big Machine claims that “Taylor Swift can 100% perform all of her catalog, past and present, on the AMAs.”

This is in direct opposition to what Taylor Swift‘s publicist, Tree Paine, said in a statement earlier in the day, claiming that Scott “flatly denied the request.”

This also isn’t the first time Justin defended his manager in his ongoing dispute with Taylor.

Gigi Hadid, Halsey, & More Celebs Support Taylor Swift Amid Battle for Her Music

If you want to see Taylor Swift perform her old songs at the 2019 American Music Awards, you’re going to have to speak out and there are many celebs who are doing just that.

The 29-year-old singer is trying to get the rights to perform her own music live as she says that Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta are not allowing her to do so unless she agrees to their conditions. (If you didn’t know, they own the master recordings for her first six albums.)

Taylor says that the men are not letting her perform her old songs at the upcoming AMAs and they won’t let her use old performance footage in a planned Netflix documentary.

“Please let Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun know how you fell about this,” Taylor wrote in an open letter posted to social media on Thursday (November 14). “Scooter also manages several artists who I really believe care about other artists and their work. Please ask them for help with this – I’m hoping that maybe they can talk some sense into the men who are exercising tyrannical control over someone who just wants to play the music she wrote.”

Taylor‘s friends like Gigi Hadid and Halsey are among the stars who have shown support so far on social media. Read more tweets below!

Taylor Swift Needs Her Fans Help Amid Latest Battle with Scooter Braun & Scott Borchetta

Taylor Swift Needs Her Fans Help Amid Latest Battle with Scooter Braun & Scott Borchetta

Taylor Swift is calling on all Swifties to help her amid her latest battle with music mogul Scooter Braun and Big Machine’s Scott Borchetta, the men who own the master recordings for her first six albums.

You probably remember the feud that Taylor was in with the men over the summer and now it’s continuing because they allegedly won’t let her perform old music at the 2019 American Music Awards, where she’s being honored with the Artist of the Decade Award.

Taylor’s plans to perform a medley of her hits is currently in jeopardy as Scooter and Scott are supposedly using the performance as a means to get her to agree to things she doesn’t want to do.

In the open letter, Taylor also revealed that she has a Netflix documentary in the works and the duo also will not let her use “older music or performance footage for this project, even though there is no mention of either of them or Big Machine Records anywhere in the film.”

If you’re not fully aware of the situation, Taylor launched her career on Big Machine Records and the label owns the master recordings to all of the music featured on her first six albums. She decided to leave the label and release her new album Lover with Republic Records, where she will own her masters moving forward.

Big Machine was then bought by Scooter for $300 million earlier this year, which was Taylor‘s worst nightmare because she has felt bullied by him in the past. Read what she wrote in her open letter back in June about the situation.

Taylor is now asking her fans to let Scooter, Scott, and the other artists they work with (like Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, and Demi Lovato) “know how you feel about this.”

“I just want to be able to perform MY OWN music. That’s it. I’ve tried to work this out privately through my team but have not been able to resolve anything. Right now my performance at the AMA’s, the Netflix documentary, and any other recorded events I am planning to play until November of 2020 are a question mark. I love you guys and I thought you should know what’s been going on,” she concluded the letter.

Scooter Braun Addresses His Feud With Taylor Swift In New Podcast

Scooter Braun Addresses His Feud With Taylor Swift In New Podcast

Scooter Braun has opened up more about his ongoing feud with Taylor Swift in a new podcast.

Speaking on Tony Gonzalez’s Wide Open podcast, the music manager chatted about the famous feud and how he’s sticking to his guns.

If you recall, Scooter purchased Big Machine Label Group, which owns the masters to Taylor‘s first six albums. The purchase is something that Taylor called “her worst nightmare”.

Scooter received a ton of backlash from Taylor and her fans, but he’s sticking to his side of the story.

“You got to know your intention,” he shared. “I think you should have no regrets in life unless you do something with malicious intent. If I go through life with no malicious intent … hurt people hurt people. They’re going to project it onto you, they are going to say certain things.”

However, he’s not letting any online hate get to him: “I don’t really carry it. I used to get really angry, but now I am at a place where this is just an opportunity for me long-term to really truly show my truth.”

“It’s hard when you get attacked and it’s not based on any truth, but for that other person it may be based in truth but they don’t have all the information,” he explained. “And that’s why I am always open to communication and having a conversation with someone and saying, ‘Maybe this was a misunderstanding and I am happy to have the conversation with you.’ But not everybody is willing to do that and you can’t go through life thinking you’re going to be friends and everyone is going to like you.”

Scooter added, “I try to do the right thing. Not everyone is going to be happy with what you do. I think in the long-term, I’ve learned this over time, the truth always comes out. And I am confident in that.”

Taylor recently revealed that she will be re-recording her old songs.

Taylor Swift Talks About Scooter Braun Feud in Elvis Duran Interview

Taylor Swift is opening up about her feud with Scooter Braun and why she believes so strongly in artists owning their own music.

The 29-year-old singer was interview by radio host Elvis Duran on Friday morning (August 23) in New York City.

“It’s mine! She’s mine, fully mine,” Taylor said about owning the music on Lover. “I’m happy to take full ownership of this album. It’s not just from a business perspective, it’s like your heart belongs in that art you made. And the person who bought my art, he’s never made any art in his life, so he doesn’t know what it’s like. He could never understand that personal connection. When you make something and then someone buys it out from under you… I don’t think that a lot of people understand that’s how our business works. They think we own what we make.”

“I think it’s interesting to get that out there. There are so many people who want to be musicians and they need to learn these things because I didn’t know these things when I was a teenager,” she said.

If you weren’t aware, music mogul Scooter Braun purchased Taylor‘s previous label Big Machine Label Group for $300 million and he now owns her previous master recordings.
