Taylor Swift pal Brendon Urie calls Scooter Braun a ‘f***ing a**hole’

Taylor Swift’s ME! collaborator Brendon Urie calls Scooter Braun a ‘f***ing a**hole’ and ‘piece of s***’

Suffice to say, Brendon Urie is on Team Taylor.

Urie, who performed alongside Taylor Swift on the hit single ME!, ripped Scooter Braun as a ‘f***ing a**hole’ and ‘piece of s***’ in the wake of Swift’s public statement opposed to the sale of her material to the music manager’s company Ithaca Holdings, which she described as her ‘worst case scenario’ on her Tumblr blog on Sunday.

The 32-year-old musical artist, in a livestream on Twitch, held nothing back against the music industry executive, who manages such stars as Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato.

Got her back: Brendon Urie, 32, who performed alongside Taylor Swift on the hit single ME!, ripped Scooter Braun as a ‘f***ing a**hole’ and ‘piece of s***’ on Monday in the wake of Swift’s public statement opposed to the sale of her material to the music exec

‘This Scooter Braun s**t, like what a piece of s**t, right?’ he said. You guys know about this dude? It just like broke my heart, I read Taylor’s statement and I was like, “That sounds about right, ya know:” Toxic dudes doing toxic bulls**t in this toxic industry.’

The Panic! At The Disco performer characterized the sale of Swift’s catalog by her former label Big Machine Label Group to Braun ‘disgusting,’ calling Braun ‘a f***ing asshole.’

The St. George, Utah native questioned the legality of the purchase by Braun, who will now control Swift’s catalog.

‘I thought that was illegal – to do a business turn behind the people who wrote the stuff,’ said Urie. ‘Like you can’t do it without their knowledge. There’s a certain amount of time legally that you have to let the people know … like there’s gotta be a precedent for that – not toxic masculinity … I stand with Taylor, of course: It’s a sh**show to learn how awful people can be … just for some profit … and maybe some clout.’

His view: The singer said the instance is one of ‘toxic dudes doing toxic bulls**t in this toxic industry’

Puzzled: Urie said he questioned the legality of the sale of Swift’s work 

In business: Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun were snapped last week in in Montecito, California putting the finishing touches on the $300 million deal 

Urie is one of many entertainers to come to publicly pledge his support for the 29-year-old singer-songwriter, joining a group that includes other notable names such as Halsey, Iggy Azalea and Cara Delevingne.

Speaking on social media in defense of Braun included his wife Yael Cohen, Bieber and Lovato.

Swift took to the blog to decry the deal, saying that Braun has been ‘manipulative’ in ‘bullying’ her for years – including her 2016 imbroglio with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

Outspoken: Urie said, ‘I stand with Taylor, of course: It’s a sh*tshow to learn how awful people can be’

Swift squad: Urie is one of many entertainers to come to publicly pledge his support for the 29-year-old singer-songwriter

‘My musical legacy,’ she wrote, ‘is about to lie in the hands of someone who tried to dismantle it.’

Swift claimed learned of the deal when it was publicly announced earlier Sunday, an idea Big Machine Label Group’s Scott Borchetta said he was skeptical of: In a blog he posted, Borchetta said he reached out to Swift prior to the sale; and that her father was aware of what had happened days prior to the transaction being finalized.

‘I truly doubt that she “woke up to the news when everyone else did,”‘ said Borchetta, who also indicated that Swift had the opportunity to own her own material should she had stayed with his label instead of signing with Universal Music Group last fall.

‘What a f***ing finish that is’: Spurs fans will love Jermaine Jenas’ reaction to Dele Alli’s amazing lob

The England midfielder doubled Spurs' lead at The Emirates Stadium with a delightful goal after Harry Kane's through pass, to confirm the 2-0 win.

Victory sets up a two-legged last four clash with Chelsea for a place in the final at Wembley as Mauricio Pochettino eyes his first major trophy.

It was Tottenham's first win at Arsenal since 2010 and came after Unai Emery's side came from behind to prevail 4-2 in their Premier League encounter earlier this month.

And the extra special result was particularly enjoyed by Jenas, who documented his reaction during a flurry of posts to his Instagram story.

The BBC and BT Pundit made over 200 appearances for Tottenham during eight seasons at the club and was part of the last squad to win a major trophy, when they scooped the Carabao Cup in 2008.

Son Heung-Min put the visitors into a half-time lead which was cemented thanks to Alli's cute finish just prior to the hour mark after substitute Kane's chipped pass – which followed his assist in the weekend win over Burnley.

Jenas reacted: "Man like Dele. Another assist from H [Kane], another assist.

"It’s beautiful, stop it. You can’t keep giving assists like this Harry, oh my God. Oh my God."

Additional footage captured during 22-year-old Alli's goal showed Jenas running around in celebration and shouting "what a f***ing goal that is".


On Twitter, the ex-England international added: "That's just ridiculous."

Alli's contribution was later overshadowed after a bottle thrown from an Arsenal fan struck him on the head.

The Gunners, Metropolitan Police and The Football Association are all investigating the incident which is the latest intervention from a supporter in recent weeks.

Pochettino was relieved that Alli was left unhurt and called on Arsenal to take action against the offending supporter.

He told the media: "I saw it and it was lucky that it wasn’t a big issue.

"We play a derby and we hate each other in a good way but it is in a bad way when you go to damage some people or an opponent. It is only one stupid person who made a mistake.

"I respect the Arsenal fans. For one [fan], you cannot talk about everyone.

“I hope that Arsenal take responsibility and, through the cameras, they can identify [who it was] because it wasn’t a problem but it could have been a big problem, some big issue and how are we going to fix it?”

Gabby Allen 'feels sick' that she had sex with Marcel Somerville hours after he cheated on her and slams 'f***ing joker' Dan Osborne as she denies sleeping with him behind his wife's back

The Love Island beauty was left heartbroken in April when she discovered the Blazin' Squad star had been sneaking off to have sex with another woman while they were on holiday together, with Gabby only finding out about the affair two months later.

And while four months have passed, Gabby admitted the thought of Marcel's cheating still makes her blood run cold – especially since she suspects she was intimate with him just hours after he was unfaithful.

Marcel had picked up the other woman after an argument led to Gabby making an early return to their hotel room.

She told new! magazine: "He came back to me that day. Ugh, it makes me feel sick, because we probably had sex the morning after. I hope he had a shower in between."

But Marcel dug the knife in further when he accused her of cheating with ex Towie star Dan Osborne in June, after pictured emerged of the pair on a yacht with friends.

She said: "All of a sudden Marcel is like, 'Someone told me you and Dan were shagging the whole time.' The first thing I said was, 'I can't even consider that you would think that's true!' Dan's married and his baby was about to be born."

Asked if she would ever consider a romantic relationship with the personal trainer in light of his split from Jacqueline Jossa, Gabby insisted she had no interest.

She slammed: "Oh my God, no! He's a f***ing joker since he's become single. I keep reading about him in the press. It's like, mate, sort it out. He's still married!"

Despite her disdain, Gabby will be forced to get up close and personal with Dan when they enter the Celebrity Big Brother house on Thursday night.

The Sun Online has exclusively revealed many of this year's big names including Roxanne Pallet, Ryan Thomas and Kirstie Alley.

The show’s "Eye of the Storm" theme is focused on redemption, and all of the celebrities will be asking viewers for forgiveness for past scandals.
