Taylor Swift sure does know how to hold a grudge. Over her short career, her famous feuds have been legendary – and have often led to some of her biggest hits!
Usually, the source of her scorn is a jilted lover, or a former friend who did her wrong. But the “Shake It Off” singer currently finds herself at odds with many of her superstar besties over the recent beef with music manager Scooter Braun, who managed to buy all of her master recordings.
“For years I asked, pleaded for a chance to own my work. Instead I was given an opportunity to sign back up to Big Machine Records and ‘earn’ one album back at a time, one for every new one I turned in,” she explained on Tumblr. “I walked away because I knew once I signed that contract, Scott Borchetta would sell the label, thereby selling me and my future I had to make the excruciating choice to leave behind my past.”
Swift shared that she learned of Braun’s acquisition along with the rest of the world and that it triggered thoughts of his “incessant, manipulative bullying” in past years.
But in a bit of a surprise, some of Hollywood’s biggest names, including some friends of Swift’s, came to Braun’s defense.
