AceShowbiz - Is this Scooter Braun's way to address his ongoing drama with Taylor Swift? The music manager has recently joined the latest online trend of celebs transforming themselves into old people, but rather than his altered photo, people apparently took more attention to the caption that he wrote alongside the funny image.
"Last couple of weeks have really taken a toll on me," Scooter wrote on Instagram on Tuesday, July 16. While his celebrity friends, including Sam Smith and Tricky Stewart, poked fun at him in the comment section, a bunch of Taylor swift fans dragged him. Many of them said that karma had finally come to him after he bought their idol's master recordings.
One commented, "Its called karma hunty are u finally feeling it smh," while another said, "Karma coming for you and making you look like this in less than 3 years..." Someone else offered a lengthy comment that read, "God you are insufferable. You buyout an artist' work you had no part in creating and give her barely 2 days of notice and act like YOURE THE VICTIM? Even as a joke this is in poor taste. Ugh."
Last month, Taylor issued a lengthy statement slamming Scooter after he took ownership of her former record label Big Machine Music, which means that he will own her masters for each project released on her former label. Many celebrities have weighed in on the controversy and chosen their side, with singers such as Katy Perry, Halsey and Brendon Urie voicing their support for Taylor. Meanwhile, Justin Bieber and Demi Lovato defended Scooter.
The latest star to come to the entrepreneur's defense is Jermaine Dupri, who said that the country singer-turned-pop superstar shouldn't be miffed at Scooter for buying her former label and owning her masters. "It is a business deal where he got everybody's masters. She is just mad," he said. "It's not just her … he has other masters and, unfortunately, she was not privy to know the man that owned them was trying to sell them. That's the person she should be attacking."
