Taylor Swift headlined the Amazon Prime Day Concert last night (July 10), and she used the opportunity to further shame Scooter Braun. As part of a $300-million deal, Braun now owns master recordings for six of Swift's albums.
Anticipation was high as fans waited excitedly to watch her perform. So, the Swifties took to Twitter after their leader may or may not have sent a subtle message to Braun during her Prime Day performance.
Lover, due out August 23, also includes the track "You Need to Calm Down", which she performed live for the first time on Wednesday night before closing the show with "Shake It Off" - perhaps a not-too-subtle nod at her ongoing public scuffle about the rights to her back music catalog. She pointed to her beef with Kanye over the infamous line from his song "Famous" as one of the instances where they've tried to humiliate her.
It's unclear if Taylor and Scooter have resolved their issues, but based on this concert, not so much.
"But I'm aware of the story of Taylor Swift and some idiot called f-ing Scooter".
Taylor Swift's die-hard fans were as loud as ever, erupting before she hit the stage at the Hammerstein Ballroom, chanting her name minutes before opened her set with a colorful performance of the song ME!
The pop star claims Braun - whose clients include Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande - bullied for her years and said she felt "sad" and "grossed out" that he now owns her music after buying the label she was signed to. "Love is so many different things, love is complexity, love is struggle, love is pain, love is joy, love is hope, and love is equality", she said, before performing her latest song, "You need to calm down", live for the first time.
