411: Taylor Swift Accused of Cyberbullying, Walmart's Giant Black Friday Ad

Taylor Swift Accused of Cyberbullying

  • After putting out a plea to her fans to let “Big Machine Label Group, Scooter Braun & Scott Borchetta how you feel” regarding her claim they’re preventing her from performing some of her older songs at the AMAs…things took a turn
  • Big Machine employees got death threats. The Nashville headquarters closed on Friday at lunch out of an abundance of caution. There are rumors Scott Borchetta may file a cyber-bullying case against Taylor Swift.
  • For the record, BMLG is denying Taylor’s claims saying there’s no way they can prevent her from performing live anywhere and they insist that since her departure from Big Machine Label Group they “have continued to honor all of her requests to license her catalog to third parties as she promotes her current record in which we do not financially participate.”

  • Charlie's Angels had a rather embarrassing opening weekend only bringing in $8.6 million. The action flick remake, starring Kristen Stewart, was expected to earn $15 million.
