Baby hitmaker Justin Bieber in a recently released video on YouTube claimed that both he and Taylor Swift are “cool” and all is well between them.
The Bieber-Swift feud, which started in July, was on the rise has lately and the statement has left both the Swifties and Beliebers perplexed.
The feud between the two singers began to raise its head when the Die in Your Arms singer mocked Swift for her comments on his manager Scooter Braun, accusing him of bullying. As the bubble of their feud was settling down, the recently married singer posted a video imitating Swift’s banana video, catching the attention and criticism from the fans of Swift.
In the video, Justin Bieber and his wife Hailey Baldwin can be seen driving to a recording studio. When asked about his relationship with Swift, Bieber said, “We’ve always been cool. I’m done with all that other stuff. Other people’s drama is not my drama.”
With “drama”, Bieber referred to his present stance on the controversy between Scooter Braun and Taylor Swift, in which Swift called out Braun for bullying on Tumblr. She said, “For years I asked, pleaded for a chance to own my work. All I could think about was the incessant, manipulative bullying I’ve received at his hands for years.”
“Now Scooter has stripped me of my life’s work, that I wasn’t given an opportunity to buy. Essentially, my musical legacy is about to lie in the hands of someone who tried to dismantle it. This is my worst case scenario. This is what happens when you sign a deal at 15,” she added.
In a lengthy post on Instagram, Justin Bieber came forward in support of Braun, heightening the Bieber-Swift feud. He wrote, “Scooter has had your back since the days you graciously let me open up for you. What were you trying to accomplish by posting that blog? seems to me like it was to get sympathy u also knew that in posting that your fans would go and bully scooter.”
While Bieber has claimed that both him and Swift “have always been cool,” there has been no comment from Swift on the statement that might indicate the feud has ended.
Apart from Bieber, Swift’s feud with Kanye West has also stirred some news and controversies lately, keeping the ME singer highlighted, even though she does not need a controversy to stay in the limelight especially after the success of her album “Lover”.
