Scooter Braun Denies Bullying Taylor Swift


In a recent interview, Scooter called their feud “confusing” and said Taylor’s reaction made him “sad.”

The media exec, who was recently named Variety’s music mogul of the year, told the magazine that the public feud with the singer-songwriter is “not based on anything factual.”

He continued that the feud, which stemmed from his 2019 acquisition of Big Machine Records and thus Swift’s masters, “seems very unfortunate.” He added that Swift’s reaction makes him “sad.”

After the acquisition, Scooter sold Taylor’s masters. She said her team tried to negotiate with Scooter but that his team was requiring her to sign an “ironclad” NDA, which was “not normal.”

In the interview, Scooter acknowledged the NDA, but did not respond to allegations by Taylor that it seemed the “master recordings were not for sale to [her].”

“I don’t know what story she was told. I asked for her to sit down with me several times, but she refused,” Braun told Variety. “I offered to sell her the catalog back and went under NDA, but her team refused…She and I only met briefly three or four times in the past, and all our interactions were really friendly and kind. I find her to be an incredibly talented artist and wish her nothing but the best.”

Braun said his characterization as a “bully” struck him as the “worst.” He continued, “I’m firmly against anyone ever being bullied. I always try to lead with appreciation and understanding. The one thing I’m proudest of in that moment was that my artists and team stood by me.”

In a Tumblr post, Taylor previously described Scooter as an “incessant, manipulative bullying” person who was “controlling.” She characterized the acquisition deal as her “worst case scenario.”

Elsewhere, Scooter suggested that Taylor’s accusations have created misconceptions about him.

“I think when you’re successful, you are misunderstood…There’s always going to be misconceptions because people want to see things the way they want to see them,” he told the outlet.

As much as I love their love, they are so rarely pictured together.

Emma and Dave were photographed at a Padres baseball game earlier this week, and the pics are adorable.

“La La Land…Naaahhhh… More like, Padre Land!” Mark Grant, TV color analyst for the San Diego Padres, posted a pic of himself with the couple. “Thanks to Emma Stone and her Husband David McCary for visiting us in the booth. It was truly a pleasure! Go Padres! #bestactress.”

Elizabeth Olsen Recalls Awful Game Of Thrones Audition


“It was awful. I didn’t get a callback.”

She’s known for playing Wanda in the Disney+ series WandaVision.

But before she was cast as the leading lady in the show, the actor auditioned for the iconic role of Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones.

During a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Olsen recalled her important HBO audition and revealed why she lost the role to actor Emilia Clarke.

“I auditioned for, like, the assistant to the casting director in a small room in New York with just a camera on me and them reading the script,” she recalled.

Olsen revealed that she read one of the most iconic speeches that Daenerys gave in the show for her audition, but sadly her performance wasn’t anywhere near where it needed to be.

“[I read] the Khaleesi speech when she comes out of the fire,” she said. “It was awful. I didn’t get a callback.”

The role ultimately went to Clarke, who was nominated for four Emmy Awards for her role as Khaleesi.

And since Olsen still snagged her exceptional WandaVision gig, I would say that everything happened for the best.
