Scooter Braun Opens Up About Taylor Swift Drama

Scooter Braun finally speaks out about the Taylor Swift scandal.

In an interview with Variety, Braun revealed how he really feels about the whole situation and being deemed as the villain.

The Drama

In 2019, Braun bought Big Machine for $300 million, which included the rights to the master recordings of Swift’s first six studio albums: “Taylor Swift,” “Fearless,” “Speak Now,” “Red,” “1989” and “Reputation.”

When Swift found out about the news, she shared her story via Tumblr that created a whirlwind of controversy that led to Justin Bieber backing Braun on Instagram.

Nevertheless, Braun still experienced major backlash from “Swifties” who relentlessly labeled him a “bully.”

Since then, the singer-songwriter announced that she is recreating her older albums as the re-recording restrictions expire.

Scooter Speaks Out

In a new interview with Variety, Braun reveals his side of the story and attempts to rectify the claims made against him.

“I regret and it makes me sad that Taylor had that reaction to the deal,” he said. “All of what happened has been very confusing and not based on anything factual. I don’t know what story she was told. I asked her to sit down with me several times, but she refused.”

He also corrected fans who deemed him a bully and stated that it really struck a nerve.

“The thing that struck me the worst is the word ‘bully,’” he said. “I’m firmly against anyone ever being bullied. I always try to lead with appreciation and understanding. The one thing I’m proudest of in that moment was that my artists and team stood by me. They know my character and my truth. That meant a lot to me. In the long run, I’m happy for my life’s work to be the legacy I leave behind.”

Braun acknowledges that open communication and understanding are important. The executive noted that he has no “Bad Blood” with Swift.

“She and I only met briefly three or four times in the past, and all of our interactions were really friendly and kind,” he said. “I find her to be an incredibly talented artist and wish her nothing but the best.”
