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.

Halsey Speaks Out in Support of Taylor Swift & Talks Record Labels

Halsey Speaks Out in Support of Taylor Swift & Talks Record Labels

Halsey has Taylor Swift‘s back regarding her battle with Scooter Braun, Scott Borchetta and Big Machine Label Group.

The 25-year-old “Graveyard” singer shared her thoughts after responding to independent singer Verite on her Twitter account on Friday (November 15).

“moral of the story: don’t sell ownership of your masters and still expect to have control of your work,” Verite wrote, which kicked off some debate on Twitter, including Halsey.

“Hey man. Good for you. But you don’t become Taylor Swift that way. It takes an army. Everyone wants a different career and a different path, 100% But insinuating she should have known or done better to reach her magnitude is negligent,” Halsey wrote in response.

“Ps. My first radio play, charting records, and extended play were all seen independent as well before I found a home at my label. I know both sides of this very well. artist trust labels. It’s supposed to be a healthy symbiosis. You have holidays with these people. dinners. deaths. Watch babies be born. They watch your lowest lows and highest highs. Sometimes things are unspoken. Legal doesn’t mean moral or ethical. You shouldn’t have to live in fear of protecting yourself from the people who are supposed to be on your side. And most young, wide eyed artists, don’t have the foresight to think they will need to. And it’s sad they would ever need to..That’s all I’m gonna say on that for now,” she went on to tweet.

Selena Gomez Sides With Taylor Swift Over Latest Music Battle with Scooter Braun

Selena Gomez Sides With Taylor Swift Over Latest Music Battle with Scooter Braun

Selena Gomez is supporting Taylor Swift 100% in her latest battle with Scooter Braun, Scott Borchetta and Big Machine Label Group.

In a new letter the 27-year-old singer shared to Instagram, she expresses her frustrations and stands by Taylor in the battle.

“My heart is so heavy right now,” Selena started. “It makes me sick and extremely angry. (I don’t mind if there may be retaliation) this is my opinion. It’s greed, manipulation and power. There is no heart or thought of anyone else’s. No respect for the words my friend has written since she was a 14 year old in her bedroom. You’ve robbed and crushed one of our best song writers of our time an opportunity to celebrate all of her music with fans and the world.”

She continues, calling out Scooter and Scott, “You’ve robbed and crushed one of our best song writers [sic] of our time an opportunity to celebrate all of her music with her fans and the world. I have known Taylor for 13 years. She is the most dedicated, fearless, fiesty [sic], strongest woman I’ve ever known. People can say b**** but what I’m saying to you is that’s called a woman with true identity and strength who takes no sh**.”

“I listened to fearless before it came out and I just remember us jumping on a bed and she was just sparkling. ✨ -so proud of her diary being read by the whole world. Nervous of people not liking it … but that became one of the biggest records – an album that saved so many young woman who felt alone. Have a broken heart. Who were healing. Those who felt invisible. Gave a voice to those who didn’t know that they had one all along. Believing in dreams again. I continued to see how she has constantly challenged her self to create a beautiful life that belong to just her. So I can tell you first hand the MOST important thing to Taylor is her family, love, her fans, and her MUSIC. I really hope there is a change of heart over this unfortunate situation.”

She concluded, “Seeing my best friend (or any of my friends) be constantly pulled down is the worst feeling. Taylor fights. She will never stop fighting. People grow from choices. Some will stay exactly the same. I just want a change of heart. I love you.”

Taylor Swift's Rep Hits Back at Record Label's Claims

Taylor Swift's Rep Hits Back at Record Label's Claims

Taylor Swift‘s representative is standing her ground.

After Big Machine Records responded to Taylor‘s original claim that her former label won’t let her perform old songs at the American Music Awards and in an upcoming Netflix documentary, Tree Paine issued a statement on Friday (November 15).

“The truth is, on October 28, 2019 at 5:17 p.m. the Vice President, Rights Management and Business Affairs from Big Machine Label Group sent Taylor Swift‘s team the following: ‘Please be advised that BMLG will not agree to issue licenses for existing recordings or waivers of its re-recording restrictions in connection with these two projects: The Netflix documentary and The Alibaba ‘Double Eleven’ event,” Tree said.

“To avoid an argument over rights, Taylor performed three songs off her new album Lover at the Double Eleven events as it was clear that Big Machine Label Group felt any televised performance of catalog songs violated her agreement,” the statement continues.

“In addition, yesterday Scott Borchetta, CEO and founder of Big Machine Label Group, flatly denied the request for both American Music Awards and Netflix. Please notice in Big Machine’s statement, they never actually deny either claim Taylor said last night in her post. Lastly, Big Machine is trying to deflect and make this about money by saying she owes them but, an independent, professional auditor has determined that Big Machine owes Taylor $7.9 million dollars of unpaid royalties over several years.”
