Panic! at the Disco frontman and “ME!” collaborator Brendon Urie is the latest to join Team Taylor over masters sale, calling Braun a “piece of s–t” and a “f–king a–hole.”
Scooter Braun is reportedly attempting to respond to Taylor Swift’s scathing attack after he wound up the custodian of the masters for her first six albums, but he has no intention of doing so publicly.
The music manager has also reportedly advised his clients, including Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato and Ariana Grande, to stay out of it, though that comes a little too late for some of them.
Swift effectively broke the internet on Sunday when she blasted Scott Borchetta, the owner of her former label Big Machine, for selling his company — which included those masters — to Scooter Braun’s company Ithaca Holdings for $300 million.
Among other things she accused him of bullying her over the span of years, attempting to dismantle her career and even orchestrating "revenge porn" in the form of Kanye West’s "Famous" video, which featured what appear to be naked wax dummies of various celebrities in bed with Kanye, including Swift.
Nevertheless, despite the venomous words from Swift and several celebrities who’ve come out in support of her, Braun reportedly only wants to speak with her privately, and attempted to reach out to her for just that purpose on Monday, according to People.
That didn’t stop his wife and several others from speaking out on his behalf, with Variety saying his wife Yael Cohen only felt obligated to do so for the safety of her children after she was "shocked and horrified" at the level of hate coming at them from Swifties.
In her own takedown, Cohen accused Swift of being the bully, writing, "The world has watched you collect and drop friends like wilted flowers."
Swift’s current friends have been quick to pile on Braun as well, with "ME!" collaborator and Panic! at the Disco frontman Brendon Urie the latest to join the battle. "I read Taylor’s statement and I was like, ‘That sounds about right, ya know; toxic dudes doing toxic bulls–t in this toxic industry," Urie said during a Twitch livestream.
According to The Daily Mail, Urie called Braun both a "piece of s–t" and a "f–king a–hole," while questioning the legality of selling her masters without proper notice.
"I stand with Taylor, of course. It’s a s–tshow to learn how awful people can be," he said. "Just for some profit … and maybe some clout."
