DID TAYLOR SWIFT SUGGEST JUSTIN BIEBER CHEATED ON SELENA GOMEZ? – (07/02/2019)
Taylor Swift might have just confirmed that Justin Bieber cheated on Selena Gomez during their on-and-off again relationship.
Over the weekend, a huge feud erupted after Scooter Braun acquired Big Machine Label Group, which means all the music she wrote during her time at that music label is now owned by Scooter. Justin, while apologizing to Taylor on an Instagram post, defended his longtime manager. Now, Taylor is stoking the flames by liking a comment on Tumblr by one of her fans who suggested that Justin cheated on Selena.
“‘We haven’t gotten to communicate our differences.’ You cheated on her best friend and then publicly sided with the man who made revenge porn against her was she supposed to invite you over for tea??? F*** outta here,” one Tumblr user posted, citing a line from Justin’s post and referring to Kanye West’s “Famous” video. Later on, the Tumblr user posted a screen shot of Taylor liking the post. “Oh she’s MAD mad,” the social media user captioned the post. Selena just recently deleted the last remaining photo mentioning Justin from her Instagram.
Gomez herself has hinted that Bieber was unfaithful in their relationship, which ran on and off for nearly a decade. He’s now married to Hailey Baldwin.
“Funny how the ones that cheated multiple times, are pointing the finger at the ones that were forgiving and supportive,” Gomez wrote in an Instagram comment to Bieber back in 2016. And the year before this, Bieber suggested in an interview with i-D magazine that he cheated on Gomez. “You’re on the road. And there are beautiful women on the road. And you’re just getting yourself into trouble,” he said.
Meanwhile, Scooter Braun is hoping to open communication directly with Taylor Swift and has reportedly been trying to get in touch with her to have a private conversation. Scooter has not spoken out in response to Taylor’s scathing Tumblr post and sources say he won’t be making a public statement on the matter, according to JustJared.

BRENDON URIE SLAMS SCOOTER BRAUN – (07/02/2019)
Please note the following story and video contains language that could be considered offensive.
Taylor Swift’s “ME!” collaborator Brendon Urie has taken his pal’s side in her war of words with music mogul Scooter Braun, calling him “toxic” and a “piece of sh*t.”
The Panic! at the Disco star slammed the talent manager after Swift complained she felt “grossed out” knowing the music mogul – who she has accused of “bullying” her – now owns her master records after his takeover, and claimed she never got a chance to buy them herself.
Brendon said reading his friend’s statement “broke [his] heart,” and called the business deal “disgusting.” During a livestream on social media, the 32-year-old singer said: “This Scooter Braun sh*t, like what a piece of sh*t, right? 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.’ Toxic dudes doing toxic bullsh*t in this toxic industry.
“It’s disgusting, right? What a f*cking a**hole. I thought that was illegal, to do a business turn behind the people who write the stuff. 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. There’s gotta be a precedent for that.”
Former Big Machine Records boss Scott Borchetta has disputed Taylor account and said she was offered a new record deal which would have given her back all her “assets,” including the master recordings and implied she knew about the deal before it was announced, something which Taylor’s rep says wasn’t the case.

CARDI B’S ATTEMPT TO TRADEMARK ‘OKURRR’ DENIED BY U.S. PATENT OFFICE – (07/02/2019)
Looks like Cardi B won’t be trademarking her catch phrase, “Okurrr” after all. According to the New York Daily News, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office rejected her trademark for the phrase, which she applied for back in March to use on paper goods, such as cups and posters, and clothing, like T-shirts and undergarments.
The patent office is not allowing Cardi to register “Okurrr” because it is “commonplace term, message, or expression widely used by a variety of sources that merely conveys an ordinary, familiar, well-recognized concept or sentiment.”
They also said that the expression is “commonly used in the drag community and by celebrities as an alternate way of saying ‘OK’ or ‘something that is said to affirm when someone is being put in their place.’”
