Taylor Swift Had To Call Out Scooter Braun And Scott Borchetta Once Again

Taylor Swift Called Out Scooter Braun And Scott Borchetta Yet Again Because She's ‘The Man’ They’ll Never Be

I write this post with intense rage toward Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun while blasting "The Man" by Taylor Swift.


Taylor Swift took to social media today to let everyone know what scum bags Borchetta and Braun are — just lately because we all already obviously knew that.

Taylor was planning to sing a mashup of her music (new and old) on stage at the American Music Awards as she is being recognized as the artist of the decade. The two men decided to ban Taylor from singing her old music that was produced under a previous label, Big Machine Records.

If you missed the drama back at the end of June 2019, you can read about it here, but this sentence from Taylor's blog post sums it up pretty well:

Some fun facts about today's news: I learned about Scooter Braun's purchase of my masters as it was announced to the world. All I could think about was the incessant, manipulative bullying I've received at his hands for years.

Scooter and Scott are now telling Taylor that if she sings her songs that they "technically" own that it would be violating their agreement by "re-recording" her music before she is allowed to next year.

Taylor has said it once, she's said it a hundred times, this music that they are withholding from her is the music that she started off singing as a young teenage girl. It's the music she grew up with, it's music she wrote herself, and it is music that they had absolutely nothing to do with beyond a contract.

If you aren't already fuming with rage, I don't know what's wrong with you.

After Taylor posted this to her social media today, there have been many artists showing her the support she deserves in saying that these men are doing this as a petty way to show the power they have over her. THIS IS BULLYING.

At this point, it's not about business for these men. It's not about contracts or loyalty, it's about power.

Taylor Swift is being honored as the artist of the decade and wanted to sing some of the music that got her to this award and they won't let her.

Not only is Taylor being told she cannot sing her old music, but she has also been ordered that she is forbidden from using her old music and performance videos in a Netflix documentary about her life that has been in the making for the past several years.

Scott Borchetta then told Taylor that she can have her music for the documentary if she doesn't re-record the music that they are keeping from her next year and she has to stop publicly mentioning Scott and Scooter's name in a negative way.

Clearly, Taylor is not down with these terms, and neither should she be.

These men have intentionally and cruelly manipulated Taylor Swift for years now and need to be stopped.

Taylor's success speaks for itself and these men are taking advantage of it for their own personal agendas and it's not OK.

As Taylor said in her post, let these men know how you feel so they can be stopped with their bullshit once and for all.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

This month, Black Lives Matter protests have taken place across the country following the police killing of George Floyd — which was ruled a homicide by multiple medical examiner reports — and Breonna Taylor, who was shot dead by police in her home.

The protests have been a powerful outcry of energy that has put the nation on notice. The time has come for racism to be dismantled in institutions like the police that many claim still upholds a culture of brute force and stereotyping people of color.

I, among hundreds of thousands of others across the globe, have participated in the peaceful protests against the attacks on civil rights at the hands of the police and under the command of our elected officials. This call to action is from the killing of George Floyd, 46, whose neck was knelt on by a white police officer for eight minutes and 46 seconds while Floyd was handcuffed and lying face down on the road.

To End Systemic Racism, Black People Need To Be Heard

We don't need you to feel sorry for us, we need you to empathize with us.

Lindsay Mogle

These past few weeks have been some of the toughest in my lifetime. Something needs to be done, people are still losing their lives because of the color of their skin. In order for change, I can't be quiet anymore. This isn't political, and this isn't just about how I'm feeling at this moment. We, the Black people in this country, need our voices to be heard and our messages finally understood, because this time needs to be different.

We Talked To BLM Organizer Tyrone Nance On The LA Protests And Systemic Racism

"As long as the breath flows out of my body I will continue to fight and advocate for all those who are marginalized and oppressed."

As the Black Lives Matter movement continues to march across the country to protest the unjust deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and others, many people are taking lead and using their voices to help spark systemic change.

These protests have sparked integral conversations across social media, in the national media, and have even started accelerating systemic change in many places. New York City is banning police restraints that choke people — even though the NYPD already have a ban in place.

Arizona Might Be America's Newest Swing State — And The Closest Of The 2020 Election

After the surprise win of Kyrsten Sinema in 2018, Arizona has been placed on several lists as a swing state.

Arizona has voted Republican in every Presidential election except one since 1952. But in recent years, the state has been trending more and more to the middle. For example, in 2016, then-candidate Donald Trump won the state by about four percentage points. Before then in 2012, Mitt Romney won the Grand Canyon State by nine percentage points. If you look at other high profile races, like our U.S. Senate seats, John McCain won his election in 2016 by almost 14 points. Two years ago, a Democrat, Kyrsten Sinema, beat Republican Martha McSally in a squeaker, by two percentage points.
