Todrick Hall took off his earrings and kicked off his heels in a public feud with entertainment mogul Scooter Braun.

Todrick, a well-known choreographer and singer, defended Taylor Swift in her dispute with Scooter over ownership of her back catalog.

Scooter incurred Taylor's wrath when he acquired her last six albums in a $300 million deal to buy her old record label, Big Machine Label Group.

Taylor was furious that she was not given the opportunity to buy her own catalog.

After news broke of the sale, Taylor lashed out at Scooter on Instagram, writing that she feels "betrayed" and "grossed out" by the sale. She claims he bullied her in the past when she argued with one of his clients, Kanye West, over his depiction of her as completely nude in his "Famous" music video.

"I stand with Taylor," singer Katy Perry wrote, adding: "Stay strong my friend."

Other stars, including Todrick Hall, took the opportunity to blast Scooter as a bully and homophobe.

"For those asking, I left Scooter Braun a long time ago," Todrick writes. "I am saddened by this news, but not shocked. He is an evil person who's only concern is his wealth and feeding his disgusting ego. I believe he is homophobic & I know from his own mouth that he is not a Swift fan.

"Also........ Men sending women in (their wives) to carry out their patriarchal bullshit is the worst form of feminist and human betrayal of all time - looking at you Yael and Hailey," he wrote, referring to Scooter's wife, Yael, and singer Demi Lovato.

Todrick added: "I would normally not say anything because I'm sure scooter will threaten me like he has before to keep me quiet, but guess what Scooter, nothing you can do to me would be worst than the 6 years of my life I can’t get back from when & I was ignored as your “artist”

He then addressed Demi Lovato, who is one of the artists on Scooter's roster. Demi weighed in after someone shared screenshots of Todrick's tweets on Instagram.

"Hey boo, idk [I don't know] you or anything and this isn't hate, but making claims that someone is homophobic is really serious. Please don't spread information that isn't true because I can guarantee you Scooter isn't. As a member of the LGBTQ+ community myself, he wouldn't have signed me if he was. No hate just trying to clear that up."

Todrick wasn't here for Demi calling him "boo".

"Dear Demi, first off... why did you delete your tweet? Secondly, I love you and listen to your music religiously, but thirdly, you cannot compare your experience to mine, especially with someone I was with for six years and you've only just signed with. PSA, Just because you have a black friend doesn't mean you can't still be racist. And just because you're not picketing against gay marriage doesn't mean you're not homophobic. I said what I said and I believe what I believe."

Then Todrick addressed Scooter directly for sending Demi to fight his battles.

"Also, stop using your one client who identifies as queer to stand up for you. There's no way Demi saw my tweet, that means someone from your team is reaching out to them, using them to defend you. Fight your own battles."

Scooter's most famous client, Justin Bieber, posted a throwback image of himself with Taylor on Instagram. Justin apologized for an old Instagram post the singer cited as evidence of Scooter's social media bullying, denying it had anything to do with his manager.

"I have dealt with bad people in this industry and Scooter is not one of them," Justin wrote. "Personally, I'm grateful he came into my life when he did. Please stop "dragging" people or bullying them. There's enough hate in this world as it is."

Big Machine's chief, has claimed Taylor knew about the deal before it went through, posting contractual documents as proof. He also noted that Taylor's dad sits on the board of Big Machine Label and he chose not to participate on a shareholder's conference call about Taylor's catalog last week.

Other stars have since weighed in, dragging Taylor for putting Scooter on blast.

A mess!

    What does Todrick sing/perform?

  • Jai

    So weird the guy bought rights to her music given bad history. Like that's extremely spiteful of him and former label. Seeing videos of artists talking about not having rights to music they write, produce and bring to life is so weird. Most recently I saw Ciara talk about finally having the rights to her own music finally after 15 years doing music. I remember TLC interview years ago talking about how they were only making 50 cents per album sold despite writing good chunk of music. This is an evil industry tbh. Regardless how I feel about an artist they should automatically have atleadt 40% stake in their catalogs atleast regardless if new or not. More if write down music or produce.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Chile...idc but since we got a whole dang post about this Mayo Madness.

    I cant believe anything Taylor says. Shes preven to be a bold face liar. I read that she or her management were notified before he did it. I mean that's the name of the game. And Todrick, you can defend Taylor but no one can defend Scooter? Stop it.

  • Nunya Business

    Todrick was on American Idol some years ago and he also has choreographed videos for Taylor and Beyonce. He's not exactly mainstream but he's done a few things. He is damn near beat friends with Taylor so I'm not shocked that he came to her defense here. Just doing what any other best friend would do, right or wrong. She'll reward him for his loyalty if people try to black ball him and everyone will forget about this in an hour.

  • Alextra Ballard


  • KneeSee

    I always side-eye ppl who only speak out against somebody in defense of a friend or relative. It seems like he's hitching a ride on Taylor's wagon.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    I don't like Taylor but dislike Scooter as well. Get him all the way together Todrick

  • Alextra Ballard

    Well Taylor ain’t to now I would’ve thought she’d have alla her shidt on lock. Her management team drop the ball

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Wait...Scooter Braun could afford to pay $300 million for a music catalog? I didn't know Scooter's money was long like that. Pretty impressive.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    I love Todrick, he made a video about Scooter a couple years ago called Blah Blah Blah, in regards to his shady ways. It's part of his video album, Straight out of Oz.

  • Kanyade
  • Zeta Aggie

    He could be repping a pool of investors. Never heard of the guy.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Those were my thoughts. I think he’s a part of a group.

  • Dowoop

    I came to write the exact same thing.

  • Dowoop

    They are not friends he doesn't owe her shit to tell her. Why isn't she upset with the people who sold it?

  • Li-Wright

    Take it to court. If Taylor thinks she was swindled or whatever, she can sue.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    You're right, he might be. But he's one of those behind the scenes dudes in the industry that a lot of people don't know of, but quietly makes a lot of money, and was the guy responsible for bringing Justin Bieber from Canada to the US to launch his career. .

  • WhoKnew

    The real question is with all of Taylor's tours how come her dollas weren't that long to purchase her own masters? Now she out chere talm bout she didn't know anything until it hit the news. I'm sorry when 3 board of directors come out and say that's BS typically that's smoke where there is fire because why would 3 people put their reputations on the line to call BS on her misinformation and as one board member cited her inability to read a contract.

  • Cricket404

    Watch his video album, Straight out of Oz, Papi is my favorite. It's on YouTube.

  • Zeta Aggie

    I thought Usher discovered Justin on youtube? Lol I’m so confused and too lazy to google.

  • Cricket404

    Watch Todrick Hall Blah Blah Blah, he told his Scooter story in his video album in 2016.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Scooter discovered him on Youtube, convinced his mother to let him come to Atlanta, and then introduced him to Usher.

  • KLo
  • Yup, I said it

    Black Men arent going to be exist in 25 yrs. The machine is trying to make them extinct. They started with making it normal for black women to be single heads of the household with all that " I'm strong, single independent, dont need a man crap." Then locking black men up for years at a time for dumb charges like weed and let them turn gay in prison. Now men are walking around like this. The few that know what's up get bashed and called toxic for speaking up.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    And they need to quit pulling THE HOMOPHOBIC AND BULLY CARD to gain public sympathy and empathy! Bye! Now but it back.. PAY HIM FOR YO CHIT if you want it!!

  • Renee26

    Taylor honey.... You're a slave... Your own daddy skipped the meeting to discuss your masters ? Ion think it was meant to be guh

  • Renee26

    So he took Beiber to the mall and got him in front of Usher? Or whomever the negro was that discovered Beibs

  • Navybeans95

    Say it louder for the ones in the back ....especially that part about single black women being head of household....smh

  • Cheese eggs

    Well if nothing else this should let up and coming artists know that show business is just that.....a business. If you go into to it LEARN ABOUT THE BUSINESS.

  • SandraRose

    She's saying she didn't know. And they didn't give her an opportunity to buy them.

  • Yup, I said it

    Looking like he dusted off his Comicin costume. They kiss up to white women so bad but I bet he'd be popping off at the mouth with black women with that "bitch this and how that" mess.

  • Junkanoo

    Todderick Hall never looks good in drag why he even bothers is beyond reason . I agree with Kneesee Todderick only found the courage to speak out against this guy in defense of Taylor Swift not in defense of himself ? I always wondered why I never liked Todderick when I first discovered his YouTube dance videos back in the day he's a bootlicking fool.

  • dontgetblocked

    Taylor Swift couldn't afford to buy her own catalog. It's about business. Paul McCartney couldn't afford to buy the Beatles catalog so his good friend Michael Jackson snatched it up. It ruined their friendship but left MJ's adopted children wealthy.

  • dontgetblocked

    Todrick Hal, this ain't your fight. You're worth around 3.5 million dollars..maybe. Taylor Swift is worth 400 million dollars. She doesn't need your help.

  • WhoKnew

    I heard that too but the board members are calling BS on that claim. One board member posted a text message showing TS had been texted with advance notice of the sale. Additionally, they said her deddy also knew and she still did not opt to purchase them.

    Think about it. She had years to make a bid to purchase those masters and didn't. Now that someone else has she's claiming that she wasn't given that option. TS is going to have to take this "L" cuz she sounds like she's lying. Something just doesn't compute with what she's saying.

  • Indies beauty

    Scooter tried it, "try again...trimesterrrrrr, Tryra banks" - Todrick In Mean Boys. Im just chuckling to myself, flashing back. His skits used to be hilarious

  • CardiB’sAbs

    I’m not fooling with you tonight ????


    Wow black LGBTQMNOPs always throwing race in their attention seeking shenanigans to claim trying to get credibility and relevance that the bedroom labels won't give .. Please leave black people out of this white folks dispute because so many black people in Music Have lost their MUSIC catalogs in faulty deals and by backstabbing record labels taking advantage of the creative, poor and desperate and did not get even as much as an honorable mention or even 1/16 of the hype of the talentless culture appropriator Taylor.

  • Dahl

    Dead at mayonnaise fight...???


    I am like who cares about Taylor maybe if she would have spent as much time handling her business as she did as appropriating other artists she would own her catalog.

  • Reenaface

    He had a short lived tv show on MTV. I never bothered to watch one episode.

  • Reenaface

    I mean I'm shocked at this revelation because for years the media ran with the narrative that she was so business savy smart when she pulled her music from Spotify for not paying their artists much money for streaming. It was such a defining moment? and she was supposed to lead the charge for other artists to follow her lead at the time.

  • Reenaface

    I only heard of Scooter Braun for being the one who called the ambulance for Kanye during his breakdown because Kanye was at his house when it happened. And then I saw him posed with Ariana Grande, I think he reps her too.

  • Jethro

  • Reenaface

    Yep. And you can thank groups like TLC and Destiny's Child for bringing in that "Independent Woman, No Scrubs, Bills, Bills, Bills" mantra.. Before that back in the 1990's we were still singing r&b love songs to each other.

  • angrysolo

    bye wig

  • Reenaface

    Kanye said he was able to buy his own masters but was told no. Where was Scooter at then, he's his manager.

  • Reenaface

    Let “them” fight their own ish.

  • stav

    Demi comes off as really young , naive, and inexperienced. We all work with people daily who are racist, bigots,etc. The fact that this Scooter man is working with you, means he saw doing so as a buisness opportunity. A person doesn’t have to like you or the way you live to make money off of you . Once she matures, hopefully she'll realize this, and being in Hollywood you'd think she'd know it already!

  • SandraRose

    Artists have to be on Michael Jackson's level to buy their own masters.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    I believe tod and taylor.
    I had the misfortune of waitressing for an event of scot way back in the day and he had katy perry there kissing her butt right around the time that her and tatlor were beefing. A beef mind you that everyone in hollywood knows scot started by repeating things he heard that taylor said about katy. Just because taylors a crying white bish doesnt mean that she cant be right. Team hall/swift.

    Don't forget the Spice Girls with all that girl power bff crap. Once Posh landed David Beckham's she said "screw dis single shiat." The rest of them followed suit got husbands and had babies and they ain't thinking about that group . they cant even leave their mens long enough to tour. The poor little chocolatey one is still trying be skrong and independant and look where it got her. She a baby momma, paying palimony to a blue eyed nigga she didn't even have kids with and had an open relationship and the negro still cheated. Destiny child did the same. They all,got,husbands and said this girl power single ladies shit is for the birds.

  • Reenaface

    Facts! But I thought Melanie B had a child with her husband Stephen Belafante, a girl I thought.

  • Reenaface

    You don't think that Kanye has MJ money though? I read where he's worth $130 million?????

  • Yup, I said it

    Probably, she's such a messy damn piece of a female I doubt it even matters,who the bio dad is. The kids where probably conceived during an orgy.

  • Solstice

    LMMFAO!!!!! Idk either ??????

  • Nunya Business

    I believe she was aware of it prior to the sale and is making a fuss now so that she can try and guilt them into giving her a portion of the catalog or trying to get them to allow her to purchase a portion of her catalog on the low. Maybe I'm wrong but I don't trust her very much, especially after Kim K exposed her for acting like she wasn't aware of Kanye's Famous song prior to it dropping. Kim K has receipts for that ass and good thing she did because Taylor tried it.

  • Mo Laughz

    Taylor should stop throwing a tantrum, a lot of prominent artist don't own their early work, the label made the initial investment on you and that is their return. If you want to do something about it devalue your early catalog by over-saturating the market with new material. If I was her I'd
    release two or three albums a year until no one cares about my old chit .

  • Mo Laughz

    Bc the masters alone weren't for sale. The only equity the company had were her Masters so they held on to the Masters in order to unload the entire company in a package deal. Just like Disney buying a part of fox to acquire marvel licensing rights.

  • MsPam

    Yawn, they all can go away.

  • Evillene

    If she had a right of first refusal to buy her own catalog, and didn't, I am done with her and her gay black lapdog.

    If she wasn't given a fair shot to buy her own catalog that is some completely wrong, lowdown industry bullsh*t that I wouldn't wish on anyone, even Taylor Swift.

  • MsPam

    Have you worked for any of these folks?! ?????

  • Cali

    Taylor helps his coins, he knows what he is doing.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Thing that kills me, is folks dont expect him to ride for his friend. Bc he is gay is irrelevant to me.

    Nobody ever says Da Brat shouldnt ride for Mariah. She gay too and that chick rides for Mimi every single time its warranted. I mean thats their job as a friend. Folks are strange.

    And the sooner blacks understand this the better off we will be!!!!
    not addressing this article at all I just happen to like that statement that you made.....
    People in general especially black people are always in their emotions about people outside of their race not liking them not understanding them the whole 9.....
    But if we understood how commerce works we use white people as well..... Actually the whole world does because minorities understand that we have to....
    And let's be honest how many of Us have friends outside of our race that we actually Like?
    Ask yourself one question,..?

    "Taylor was furious that she was not given the opportunity to buy her own catalog" y'all THIS is what it's all about. Taylor Swift obviously is low key not really respected in the backend of the music industry. She is a messy, bully at best. Todrick Hall, sorry...who? Scooter Braun got an opportunity to purchase a whole label which also included her publishing so he took it, the end. So was he supposed to just leave it on the table and give her an offer to buy her masters? That's was her problem and for her team to negotiate. She is one of the biggest bullies and liars in the industry and she is getting what she deserves. The fact that him and his family will eat off of her name for generations is amazing, well played.

    In my Ray via Jamie Fox voice. I Wanna own my masters. In my Tyler Perry B.E.T acceptance speech voice own your shit. Instead of buying all these expensive houses that you are never end you should have been saving up. Scooter lived in a condo for many years even during the height of beiber mania. Taking taxis or jumping on Marta to get to airport. Not town cars or limos. If I had the money i would buy it too....Hey scooter can Atlanta get a hockey team back? Thanks in advanced

  • Kayke

    So Taylor was talking shit about Katy and the problem is the person who let Katy know? If Taylor wasn’t talking shit no one would have anything to carry to anyone else. Nobody likes Taylor..... and all the folks talking about “I’m with Taylor” just want to see things made easier for those who have masters to obtain..... and all of them do, with the exception g Rihanna.
