Swift V Scooter

Discovery+ has given fans a first look into the upcoming docu-series “Taylor Swift vs. Scooter Braun: Bad Blood”

This two-part series will delve into the highly publicised and controversial sale of Taylor Swift master recordings to Scooter Braun for $300 million.

At the time it ignited a feud that split fans and celebrities alike. 

Now, with detailed insider accounts, the two episodes will dissect the intense business clash between global superstar Taylor Swift and influential music executive, Scooter Braun.

The series presents two opposing narratives, challenging viewers to decide who was in the right and who ultimately emerged victorious.

The first episode features perspectives from Swift’s closest confidants, portraying her as a feminist icon and a gifted artist who is standing up against powerful men in the industry. 

They speak about her struggles against misogyny in both the media and the music business, and her determination to protect artistic integrity.

The second episode offers fans the opposite viewpoint, which suggests Swift was given the opportunity to purchase her masters but chose not to. 

Industry experts question whether Swift strategically manipulated the narrative of a deal she found unfavourable, encouraging her massive fanbase to fight against Braun.

One passionate fan describes the situation as “a betrayal of an artist and of a woman in a male-dominated world,” while another insists, “this was a business deal, not a bullying attack.” 

As a legal professional notes, Braun makes “no apologies for being a businessman,” while others argue that Swift “commanded an army and she’s the general”.

The trailer shows a striking characterisation of the feud as “Goliath vs. Goliath, a battle of Titans.” 

Viewers will soon be able  to watch and draw their own conclusions about this epic showdown.

The series premieres on Friday, June 21st, in the UK and Ireland.
