Recently, pop singer Taylor Swift has penned a depressive letter about Scooter Braun‘s Ithaca Holdings agreed to acquire Scott Borchetta‘s Big Machine Label Group in a giant industry deal. Because this new takeover means that Braun now owns the rights to all of Taylor Swift‘s pre-recorded music. She wrote a lengthy article on it. Taylor Swift said in one part of the statement. She wrote:
“Some fun facts about today’s news: I learned about Scooter Braun’s purchase of my masters as it was announced to the world. All I could think about was the incessant, manipulative bullying I’ve received at his hands for years.”

Singer Halsey also defended Taylor Swift against Scooter Braun after his manipulative bullying. ‘Nightmare’ singer wrote:
“Taylor Swift is a huge reason why I always insisted to write my own music. I believed if she did it (in a way that made my teeth ache like cold water and my heart swell and my eyes leak) than I should too. Cause that’s how to make someone feel. To drag it from the pits of your heart. To offer it on a platter and say ‘take some but take kindly.’ She deserves to own the painstaking labor of her heart.
It turns my guts that no matter how much power or success a woman has in this life, you are still susceptible to someone coming along and making you feel powerless out of spite. It speaks volumes to how far we have to come in the music industry
I truly hope that justice is served and my friend’s music will fall into the hands of a better human
I feel terrible for Taylor. This is the record business at its most ruthless and shady. She is genuinely one of the nicest people ever and does not deserve this. She should own her work. These people are soulless.”
