Kelly Clarkson has opened up about her viral tweet about Taylor Swift’s music, shedding light on how Taylor’s former music manager Scooter Braun reacted to her suggestion.
What did Clarkson say on the subject?
During an interview with Andy Cohen for a SiriusXM Town Hall special, The American Idol winner shared that Braun took offense at his tweet, which led him to contact his manager. However, Clarkson clarified that her tweet was not intended as a personal attack on Braun. She expressed her support for Swift’s decision to re-record her music and praised the immense support she received from her fans, as evidenced by her chart-topping success.
In 2019, when it was announced that Braun had acquired the rights to Swift’s first six albums through the acquisition of Big Machine Records, Clarkson took to Twitter with a suggestion for the Blank Space singer. She recommended that Swift re-record her songs, offering new artwork and incentives to encourage fans not to buy the original versions. It was a response to Swift’s public battle with Braun and her former record label.
