Taylor Swift Fans Think “Cassandra” Is About Her Scooter Braun Feud

Taylor Swift Fans Think "Cassandra" Is About Her Scooter Braun Feud

In 2021, he told Variety that he tried to meet with Taylor “several times, but she refused” as he claimed that their feud is “not based on anything factual.” Sources added to BuzzFeed that he tried to sell Taylor her masters back, but she and her team refused a meeting.

In October 2020 — just over a year after buying Big Machine Records — Scooter sold the masters to Taylor’s catalog, including all associated videos and artwork, to Shamrock Holdings for more than $300 million.

The following month, Taylor issued a statement alleging that her and Scooter’s respective teams had been in negotiations for her to regain ownership of the masters, claiming: “Scooter’s team wanted me to sign an ironclad NDA stating I would never say another word about Scooter Braun unless it was positive.”

Taylor added that Shamrock Holdings contacted her team after buying her masters from Scooter’s company, and that she was “hopeful and open to the possibility of a partnership” with them. Unfortunately, she was dismayed to learn that the terms of Scooter’s sale meant that his company would continue to profit from her work. 

“As soon as we started communication with Shamrock, I learned that under their terms Scooter Braun will continue to profit off my old musical catalog for many years,” Taylor explained. “I was hopeful and open to the possibility of a partnership with Shamrock, but Scooter’s participation is a non-starter for me.”
