AceShowbiz - Taylor Swift is currently embroiled in a war against Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta from her former label Big Machine Records whom she claimed banned her from performing her old hits on TV. Known for being close to Scooter, who is also his manager, now Justin Bieber has weighed in on the drama between the three former colleagues.
On Friday, November 15, Justin took to Instagram Stories to share a screenshot of an article written by TMZ. The article featured Big Machine Label's side of the story, in which an executive claims that "Taylor Swift can 100% perform all of her catalog, past and present, on the AMAs."
Justin didn't add any caption in his post, but it was safe to assume that he didn't try to hide the fact that he's on Scooter's side in this battle.
Prior to the "Love Yourself" singer, Selena Gomez shared her opinion on the drama. In her lengthy Instagram post, the "Lose You to Love Me" hitmaker said that the two men "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."
"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," she continued.
Calling the "Lover" songtress "the most dedicated, fearless, fiesty (sic), strongest woman I've ever known," Selena 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."
The drama started after Taylor claimed on Instagram that both Scooter and Scott barred her from singing her old songs as Scooter owned the singer's first six albums. The two music moguls, however, denied it and instead accused the singer of "owing millions of dollars and multiple assets to our company." They also said Taylor rejected "the invitations to speak" with them.
