Watch: Taylor Swift Slams ‘Toxic’ Scooter Braun at Billboard’s Women in Music Event

Published: Friday 13th Dec 2019 by Rashad

On the eve of her 30th birthday, Taylor Swift couldn’t say goodbye to her 20’s without taking one more jab at former business partner Scooter Braun.

Embroiled in a highly publicized spat with the entertainment mogul since losing the rights to her master recordings to him (click here to read more), the Grammy winner – who was being recognized with ‘Woman of the Decade’ honors at Thursday’s Billboard Women in Music soiree (December 12) – opted not to mince words when she took to the event’s stage to accept the award.

After delivering an impassioned plea to women to fight for equality in their respective professions, the ‘Shake It Off’ hitmaker homed in on her battle with Braun:

“Let me just say that the definition of the toxic male privilege in our industry is people saying, ‘Well, he’s always been nice to me’ when I’m raising valid concerns about artists and their rights to own their music. Of course he’s nice to you. If you’re in this room you have something he needs. The fact is that private equity enabled this man to think, according to his own social media post, that he could ‘buy me.’ I’m obviously not going willingly.”

That’s not all she said.  Look inside for more:

    Sneaky ass b****. “Best revenge is your paper” does not apply to your victim noises during acceptance speeches for pity awards given to you facetiously by the same men you’re attempting to devalue. YOUR MEDIOCRITY IS SHOWING.

    Girl!!! Pulling the victim card will be what ends your career. Going into your thirties still crying over everything?!

    Damn at this point I’m team scooter and team Kanye and team Katy. And I can’t stand those people but Taylor just keeps becoming more unlikable

    how is Taylor pulling the victim card when its her music lol

    • only facts December 13, 2019

      Because she keeps mentioning it. Either fight in in court and try to raise the money to buy your music back, or stop talking about it and re-record your albums. The audience didn’t even clap for her. People are over her being the victim and she’s ruining her career. “Poor me”. B*tch, what about all of the underprivileged people in the world fighting poverty, hunger, etc. Some people don’t even have clean water. Yet here she is making millions off of being a victim for the last 10+ years.

      OVER IT!

        i feel she is genuine and trying to help the future generation of artist…she is Taylor Swift, blonde blue eyed white….if she can’t get respect from the executives in the business who can? i am totally here for her trying to ignite change in the industry. she knows she has white privalage, she knows she is rich, she knows she is powerful, so for her she has to be thinking damn what is everyone else going through. she has the acclaim and sales she is at a point in her career where she has nothing else to prove…so why not stand up and fight. kuddos for her foreal.

    I know it sucks to be her, but she is upset because basically she made a bad legal decision. Male privilege is a problem, but I can’t take her seriously since white privilege is the foundation of her career.

    Go away!!!! Ugh

    She’s starting to seem like the white Monique. Something about those sagittarius

    • Hfh December 14, 2019

      sagittarius fights for whats right! Im not a fan of her but that’s her music! If someone would have done that to Beyonce the backlash was 100% harsher!

    I know this site covers musicians of all races but I think I’m going to stop giving this dusty blog traffic. If the owner is truly black I don’t think he would continue to crank out stories of a known racist. Let’s stop supporting blogs, vlogs, podcasts, and businesses that promote racists. I’ll be spreading this comment across multiple articles. I like that this site posts multiple articles in a day but we can all find a different blog that does that. I like hip hop dx and I’m sure its other blogs that post just as much as TGJ. Let’s take our traffic elsewhere since TGJ supports known racists regarding Camila Cabello.
