Scooter Braun Didn't Want to Sign Demi Lovato At First

Demi Lovato and Scooter Braun are opening up about their partnership!

Last May, the 27-year-old entertainer signed with Scooter to be her new manager, and they recently dished on how it all went down.

“In the past, I projected my own abandonment issues onto other people, especially male figures that I looked up to as father figures,” Demi told Bustle about switching up her managers. “I had to reflect on, ‘What do I want my relationship with my manager to look like without enmeshing my own father issues onto him?’”

“I’ve been through that with Justin … I’ve been through that with Ariana, you know?” Scooter added about going through trauma and mental health struggles with artists. “I felt like, because I’ve been through that a couple of times with people who started off very young, I can understand [Demi’s] struggles a little bit.”

Scooter then revealed that during their first meeting, he was ready to not take her on.

“My intention was to be respectful and decline,” he said. “She was nervous … What I saw is that she needed someone who didn’t need her. And about halfway through the meeting, [my partner Allison Kaye and I] both looked at each other and instinctually kind of laughed. And then Allison texted me and goes, ‘You’re thinking the same thing I am.’ I knew I could help her. I knew Allison could help her. I knew that we were in a position, in our lives and our careers, that if Demi needed to take three years off, she can do that. And if Demi needs us to go and have an honest conversation and get her out of something, it doesn’t affect my reputation.”

“I was nervous because I wanted him to manage me so bad, and I was terrified of rejection,” Demi said. “Also, having gone through such a public overdose, I didn’t know if anyone would want to manage me after that.”

Watch Taylor Swift's Full Woman of the Decade Speech, in Which She Addressed Scooter Braun & More

Watch Taylor Swift's Full Woman of the Decade Speech, in Which She Addressed Scooter Braun & More

Taylor Swift is inspiring a lot of people with all of the things she said during her speech at Billboard’s Women in Music event on Thursday night (December 12) at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.

The newly 30-year-old singer was presented with the Woman of the Decade Award and she publicly addressed her feud with Scooter Braun and the “toxic male privilege” in the music industry.

During the speech, Taylor called out the “unregulated world of private equity coming in and buying our music as if it’s real estate—as if it’s an app or a shoe line.”

“This just happened to me without my approval, consultation, or consent. After I was denied the chance to purchase my music outright, my entire catalog was sold to Scooter Braun’s Ithaca Holdings in a deal that I’m told was funded by the Soros family, 23 Capital, and that Carlyle Group. Yet, to this day, none of these investors have bothered to contact me or my team directly, to perform their due diligence on their investment,” Taylor said. “On their investment in me. To ask how I might feel about the new owner of my art, the music I wrote, the videos I created, photos of me, my handwriting, my album designs.”

“And of course, Scooter never contacted me or my team to discuss it prior to the sale or even when it was announced. I’m fairly certain he knew exactly how I would feel about it, though, and let me just say that the definition of toxic male privilege in our industry is people saying ‘but he’s always been nice to me’ when I’m raising valid concerns about artists and their right to own their music. And of course he’s nice to you. If you’re in this room, you have something he needs,” Taylor added. “The fact is that private equity enabled this man to think, according to his own social media post, that he could ‘buy me.’ But I’m obviously not going willingly. Yet the most amazing thing was to discover that it would be the women in our industry who would have my back and show me the most vocal support at one of the most difficult times, and I will never, ever forget it. Like, ever.”

Taylor asked the people in the audience to “stand as an example for someone else in the next generation that loves the same thing that we love.”

She ended her speech by saying, “No matter what else enters the conversation we will always bring it back to music. As for me, lately I’ve been focusing less on what they say I can’t do and more on doing whatever the hell I want.”

Scooter Braun Breaks Social Media Silence on Taylor Swift Feud to Try & Make Peace

Scooter Braun Breaks Social Media Silence on Taylor Swift Feud to Try & Make Peace

Scooter Braun is speaking out on social media for the very first time about the Taylor Swift controversy and he has written her a lengthy open letter in which he is trying to make peace.

The music manager, who bought Taylor‘s former label Big Machine over the summer and now owns the rights to her master recordings, says that he didn’t plan on speaking out until his family began receiving death threats, which are seemingly from the singer’s fans.

Scooter says that he has been trying to get in touch with Taylor ever since her first open letter five months ago, but he hasn’t been able to get a hold of her. He wrote, “It almost feels as if you have no interest in ever resolving the conflict. At this point with safety becoming a concern I have no choice other than to publicly ask for us to come together and try to find a resolution. I have tried repeatedly through your representatives to achieve a solution but unfortunately here we are. This game of telephone isn’t working.”

In the letter, Scooter also confirmed that he believes Taylor should be able to perform her music at the AMAs.
