Taylor Swift took to social media recently to reveal that Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta, under their label Big Machine Records had stopped the songstress from performing her hits at the AMAs 2019, where she was going to be honoured with the Artist of The Decade award. While a joint statement by the label states that they have done no such thing and that T-Swift can perform her old hits, Scooter has mostly been keeping mum on the issues with Taylor. Untill now!

Justin Bieber's manager recently attended the 2019 Entertainment Industry Conference and addressed the controversy that has yet again divided the music industry. While Swift's name was not mentioned even once, it was obvious who his remarks were hinted at. "When there’s a lot of things being said and a lot of different opinions, yet the principals haven’t had a chance to speak to each other, there’s a lot of confusion," Braun began and added, "I don’t like anybody doing it, and if that means that I’ve got to be the bad guy longer, I’ll be the bad guy longer, but I’m not going to participate." Furthermore, Scooter pointed out that the problems between the two parties can be discussed more privately, behind closed doors as well.

While he can handle the criticism, Braun believes when there's death threats, offices being called and people being threatened then, it's gotten out of hand. He reiterates that people need to come together and have a conversation instead.

Scooter credits his true friends for sticking by him whilst also calling out the fake ones for kicking you when there is a little dent in the armor. "The truth is, I have no ill will for anybody. And the moment people want to have a conversation with me, I’m ready to have that conversation, and I’m not going to add to the narrative. I disagree with it, but I’m not going to add to the narrative. I just want to fix things and set a better example for people," he added.

"People are allowed to grow as human beings. They’re allowed to have conversations. They’re allowed to change their mind. They’re allowed to go from not liking to each other to liking each other, and vice versa. But you don’t find that out just yelling at each other. You find that out by showing each other respect and having a conversation," Braun shared.

The plot thickens!
