Taylor Swift is the first-ever women to receive the Woman of the Decade honour at the Billboard Women in Music event — and she slammed Scooter Braun in her speech. 

On Thursday evening, Swift wanted to weigh in on the situation between her and Braun since his public statement asking for a conversation between the pair.

The 30-year-old took her speech-time to issue an update, saying, “The definition of the toxic male privilege in our industry is people saying ‘But he’s always been nice to me,’ when I’m raising valid concerns about artists and their right to own their music … Of course he’s nice to you.

If you’re in this room, he has something that he needs. The fact is that private equity is what enabled this man to think, according to his own social media post, that he could ‘buy me,’ but I’m obviously not going willingly.”

She continued to share the status of their feud, saying, “Yet, to this day, none of these investors have ever bothered to contact me or my team directly, to perform their due diligence on their investment, on their investment in me, to ask how I might feel about the new owner of my art — the music I wrote, the videos I created, photos of me, my handwriting, my album designs … and of course, Scooter never contacted me or my team to discuss it prior to the sale, or even when it was announced.”

During an interview with Vogue in September, Taylor commented on the opportunity to purchase her masters, appearing to admit she passed on the chance, saying, “It was either investing in my past or my and other artists’ future, and I chose the future,”
