Justin Bieber Sides With Scooter Braun Amid Taylor Swift Feud
The "Sorry" singer confirmed his loyalty stands with his longtime manager after he shared a screenshot of a TMZ article with the headline: Taylor Swift Free to Play All Her Hits During AMAs... Big Machine Can't Stop Her."
Though Bieber didn't leave a comment or respond to the "Beautiful Ghosts" hitmaker's claims, he made it clear he supports Braun, Scott Borchetta and Big Machine. His reaction to the feud comes hours after his ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez, defended Swift in an emotional message posted to her Instagram Stories.
As previously reported, Swift published an open letter accusing her former label, Big Machine, of refusing to let her perform her old songs at the 2019 American Music Awards, in which she's set to receive the Artist of the Decade award. They also allegedly won't let her use her early music in an upcoming Netflix documentary.
Big Machine later released a statement of their own denying they ever blocked her from performing her old songs. They also accused her of spreading false information, owing the label millions of dollars and creating a narrative that does not exist. Swift's rep immediately refuted the company's claims by sharing a private email, which states Big Machine even refused to let the pop star perform her tracks at a recent event in China.
