30-year-old ‘Shake It Off’ songstress Taylor Swift is openly addressing foe Scooter Braun and calling out “toxic male privilege” in the music industry!

While accepting the Woman of the Decade Award at Billboard’s ‘Women In Music’ event, Swift called out the “unregulated world of private equity coming in and buying our music as if it’s real estate—as if it’s an app or a shoe line.”

She added: “And of course, Scooter never contacted me or my team to discuss it prior to the sale or even when it was announced. I’m fairly certain he knew exactly how I would feel about it, though, and let me just say that the definition of 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. And of course he’s nice to you. If you’re in this room, you have something he needs. The fact is that private equity enabled this man to think, according to his own social media post, that he could ‘buy me.’ But I’m obviously not going willingly. Yet the most amazing thing was to discover that it would be the women in our industry who would have my back and show me the most vocal support at one of the most difficult times, and I will never, ever forget it. Like, ever.” Swift then asked attendees to “stand as an example for someone else in the next generation that loves the same thing that we love.” She finally concluded with: “No matter what else enters the conversation we will always bring it back to music. As for me, lately I’ve been focusing less on what they say I can’t do and more on doing whatever the hell I want.” Watch her full speech below and let us know what you think: DO YOU THINK SHE’S RIGHT? DO YOU THINK SCOOTER BRAUN IS A BAD MAN?

Lynne Spears Files Motion to Be Included in Decisions About Britney Spears’ Finances

Lynne Spears, 65, just filed a motion asking for her to be included in decisions relating to her famous daughter Britney Spears' finances. Lynne filed documents with the Los Angeles County Courts specifying that she wishes to be included in "special notice" of "all matters" relating to Britney's trust. The 'SJB Revocable Trust' was setup by Britney in 2004 to protect her millions as well as to setup her kids for the future. The trust was meant to "hold and manage her material financial assets during her lifetime, and provide distribution of those assets upon her death." In 2008 Britney was put under a conservatorship due to mental health issues and was removed as a trustee from the trust, with courts appointing temporary successors. Many of Britney's fans have questioned her conservatorship and even started the #FreeBritney movement...maybe Lynne's responding.
