Taylor Swift May Have Halted Scooter Braun's Plans to Run for Public Office

Scooter Braun just told British GQ that he once had political aspirations -- but it seems that he's crediting Taylor Swift with thwarting those plans before they even got off the ground.

"Public office is something I’ve thought about in the past, but only because I get very frustrated by a lack of leadership. The reason I have shied away from it is because I have young children and I have to be careful... Recently I was attacked very publicly by someone I don’t know, someone who refused to have a conversation with me, and I wish that person nothing but the best and hope that one day a dialogue is had, because I think it all could have been avoided with proper dialogue, but what it did teach me was that if my children were teenagers, if they were a little bit older, this could have been very hard for them. And I don’t know if I’m comfortable being in public office knowing the amount of ridicule and exposure you get and I don’t know if I want to put my children through that. So right now I’m trying to do the best I can from the private sector," Braun told the magazine.

So while Scooter didn't explicitly say Taylor's name, fans think it's pretty clear that he's talking about her, given how much their back-and-forth has been in the headlines lately. Taylor most recently called him out for "shameless greed in the age of coronavirus" for releasing an album of her live-recordings from 2008.

Ultimately, Swifties rallied and that album has only been purchased a handful of times.

What do you think about all of this?
