  • The latest instalment will come with a new documentary series
  • HERE is the scoop

In the world of glitz, glamour, and occasional legal battles, the feud that shook the music industry to its core is about to get its own spotlight. 'Taylor Swift vs Scooter Braun: Bad Blood,' a gripping two-part documentary, is set to dive deep into the controversial clash between pop icon Taylor Swift and music mogul Scooter Braun.

The Feud of the Decade

This high-stakes drama, revolving around a jaw-dropping $300 million deal for Taylor's first six albums, promises to keep viewers on the edge of their seats.

When Scooter Braun snagged the rights to Taylor Swift's early discography, the music world was left reeling.

Swift, blindsided and furious, took to Tumblr, accusing Braun of "incessant, manipulative bullying." The "Shake It Off" singer's outcry was not just about the rights but the principle, claiming Braun and Big Machine owner Scott Borchetta were "controlling a woman who didn't want to be associated with them...forever."

'Taylor vs Scooter' isn't just a recount of the fallout; it's an exploration of the intricate dynamics at play. With insights from legal experts, journalists, and insiders, the docuseries promises a balanced view, dissecting the feud from both camps.

Braun, in a rare admission on the NPR podcast 'The Limits with Jay Williams,' expressed regret over his approach, learning a harsh lesson in humility and communication.

The entertainment executive responded to the controversy, telling Jay, "I learned an important lesson" from the purchase. 

Scooter's regrets

He appeared to be referring to Big Machine owner Scott Borchetta when he claimed, "When I did that deal, I was under a very strict NDA with the gentleman who owned it, and I couldn't tell any artist." 

"I was excited to work with every artist on the label. So when we finalized the deal, I started making phone calls to say, hey, I'm a part of this. And before I could even do that – I made four phone calls; I started to do those phone calls – all hell broke loose."

"So the regret I have there is that I made the assumption that everyone, once the deal was done, was going to have a conversation with me, see my intent, see my character and say, great, let's be in business together. And I made that assumption with people that I didn't know."

In the process of bearing his soul he also claimed he learned an important lesson from the controversy. "I can never make that assumption again. I can't put myself in a place of, you know, arrogance to think that someone would just be willing to have a conversation and be excited to work with me."

Not one to be silenced, Taylor Swift embarked on an ambitious journey to reclaim her music. By re-recording her first six albums, dubbed 'Taylor's Version,' Swift not only took control of her masters but also topped charts, proving her resilience and artistic integrity.

With four albums already released and two more to go, Swift's crusade is a testament to her relentless spirit and dedication to her craft.
