Scooter Braun guest starred in the Season 3 premiere of Bloomberg’s “Idea Generation” and was asked about his feud with Taylor Swift, among other topics.

Speaking with series host Noah Callahan-Bever, Braun talked about his purchase of Big Machine Records, as well as his thoughts on managers’ responsibilities, work/life balance and his relationships.

Asked about his back-and-forth with Swift, Braun didn’t mention her by name but said in the episode: “I choose to look at it as like, these moments that you think someone is attacking you or these moments you think are unfair, one you play a role in every one of these moments because you are part of the story. And two, you can choose to be angry, resentful, bitter, and actually become the story in your anger, or you can choose to say thank you for playing a role in my growth and move on.” 

“Idea Generation” has previously featured guests such as Dwyane Wade, Jessie Reyez, The Dream, Action Bronson and Marsai Martin.

The episode is currently up on YouTube and streams on the Bloomberg app, connected TV devices, Samsung TV Plus, LG Channels, Tubi, Vizio WatchFree+ and Bloomberg.com at 8:30 p.m. ET.
