Jack Antonoff, a close friend and creative collaborator of Taylor Swift, added a touch of humor to the ongoing situation surrounding Scooter Braun’s management as prominent artists continue to part ways with his company.
Jack Antonoff’s Witty Post on Scooter Braun
In a lighthearted move, Jack Antonoff, a member of Bleachers and known for his musical collaborations with Taylor Swift, shared a meme from the popular game The Sims on his Instagram Story. The meme depicted a female Sim character engrossed in a computer task while a baby Sim character lay on the floor, engulfed in flames. The accompanying text humorously read, “Not now, sweetie, mommy is trying to figure out why Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, and Idina Menzel just fired Scooter Braun as their manager.”
Celebrities Parting Ways with Scooter Braun
Recent times have seen a slew of prominent celebrities sever their professional ties with Scooter Braun’s management company, SB Projects. Notable departures include Demi Lovato and Idina Menzel, both of whom have chosen to move on from his management. Although rumors have circulated about Justin Bieber’s potential departure, his team has contradicted these claims. Similarly, speculation surrounds Ariana Grande seeking new management, though certain sources suggest these reports may not be entirely accurate and could be indicative of Braun adjusting his role.
The Taylor Swift vs. Scooter Braun Feud
The feud between Taylor Swift and Scooter Braun erupted when Braun acquired Taylor’s music masters from her former label, Big Machine Records. This acquisition stripped Taylor of control over her earlier works, sparking a public clash between the two. In response, Taylor announced her intention to re-record her previous albums to regain ownership. The conflict escalated as Taylor accused Braun and his associates of impeding her from performing her old songs and using her music without her consent. Swift embarked on the re-release of her albums and shared previously unreleased tracks, a strategic move to reclaim authority over her artistic output.
