Taylor Swift Leans into Her Reputation, Performs Diss Tracks After Scooter Braun's Retirement

The 'Bad Blood' singer delivers a mashup of tracks from her infamous diss album 'Reputation' just after her industry foe, Scooter Braun, announced his retirement.

AceShowbiz - Taylor Swift made a bold statement at her surprise performance in Cardiff on Tuesday, June 18. The 34-year-old pop superstar mashed up two diss tracks, "I Forgot That You Existed" and "This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things," to the delight of her fans. As she sang the line "'Cause forgiveness is a nice thing to do,'" Swift erupted into laughter, with the crowd cheering her on.

Fans quickly shared clips of the moment on social media, noting that it coincided with the 43rd birthday of her longtime nemesis, Scooter Braun. Just hours earlier, Braun announced his retirement from music management, making Swift's performance seem all the more poignant.

Swift and Braun have been feuding since 2019, when Braun's company, HYBE, purchased Big Machine Label Group, which owned the master rights to Swift's first six albums. Swift slammed Braun and her former label head, Scott Borchetta, for manipulating and bullying her. She subsequently announced her plans to re-record her albums to regain control of her music.

In the years since, Swift has released several pointed lyrics believed to be inspired by her drama with Braun, most notably in songs like "Vigilante S***" and "Karma" from her 2022 album "Midnights."

In a statement announcing his retirement, Braun reflected on his 23-year career in music management, expressing gratitude for the opportunities he has been given. He stated that he will now prioritize his role as a father and CEO.

Swift's performance in Cardiff suggests that she is far from forgiving Braun. Her pointed mash-up of diss tracks serves as a reminder of their ongoing feud and her determination to reclaim her legacy.
