A docuseries on Taylor Swift and Scooter Braun's legendary fight released on Friday, June 21. The two-part documentary titled 'Taylor Swift vs Scooter Braun: Bad Blood' brings together all the aspects of the pop star and her former manager's feud once and for all. The two episodes, titled 'Taylor's Version' and 'Scooter's Version' have intelligently put together the various facets of the bad blood brewing between the two individuals that stemmed in 2019 when Scott Borchetta sold his Big Machine Records to Braun, without allegedly allowing Swift to stake a claim on her own masters, per The Wrap.

Apart from that, the episode chronicled the singer's career through various high points of her life, including red carpet appearances, awards and social media posts.

Throughout the first episode, the document tried to successfully establish the fact that Swift's interaction with Kanye West during the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards actually fuelled whatever was to come later. During the award, as Swift was going to say her thank you speech, West interrupted her resulting in the subsequent battle that followed. Though it is not a secret, the documentary highlighted that Braun was West's manger till 2018. 

4. Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian's feud

Swift's feud with Kanye West led her to make another legendary enemy in the form of Kim Kardashian. After it was rumored that Kanye West got permission from Taylor Swift to call her "b***h" in his song 'Famous', Swift vehemently denied ever giving him permission. Later, Kim Kardahian published a clip through which she tried to prove that Swift gave them the permission, which ultimately led fans to call Swift a "snake". The episode showed the unedited clip where Swift allegedly says of the lyrics, “That’s not mean."

5. Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift

Justin Bieber is one of the most succesful finds of Scooter Braun. During the music manager's fight with Taylor Swift, Bieber took the side of his manager. The documentary focuses on how Bieber siding with Braun impacted Swift.

Only two songs are used in the docuseries - 'The Man' and 'Bad Blood'. 'Bad Blood' is used to show Swift's ever-changing friends group in the span of 2015. 

7. Taylor Swift's relationship with Scott Borchetta

Quite surprisingly, the docuseries says that Big Machine boss Scott Borchetta was actually in talks with Taylor Swift while selling her masters. This, however, goes against her narrative as Swift has always claimed that she was not allowed to claim her work. A legal document shown in the series says, “Taylor had every chance in the world to own not just her master recordings, but every video, photograph, everything associated to her career,” before adding, “She chose to leave.”

8. Taylor Swift's past enemies

The 'Bad Blood' docuseries quite aptly listed all the stars who spoke against the pop star during the feud. While Halsey and Kelly Clarkson are listed as the stars supporting her, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Calvin Harris, Joe Jonas, and other are shown to have antagonized her. 

9. Scott Swift had share in Big Machine Records

The series shows that Swift's father Scott Swift had 3% share in the Big Machine Records and thus when it was sold to Braun, he allegedly made $15.1 million. However, Taylor Swift's team denied the claim.
