Big Machine Label Group founder/president/ceo Scott Borchetta spoke with Billboard on the red carpet at the 2020 Billboard Power Event on Thursday (Jan. 23), discussing his partnership with Scooter Braun, why he is still rooting for Taylor Swift, and why transparency is important when it comes to awards shows.
Posed with the question of what his biggest power move of 2019 was, Borchetta tells Billboard that it was his new partnership with Scooter Braun and Ithaca Holdings, explaining, “We're having a great time and it's pretty powerful.”
Speaking of the controversy surrounding the partnership, Borchetta says that despite there being turmoil, the experience taught him who his friends are. “We've always had a tough skin, so there's a great balance in the universe, great things have happened,” he adds. “Every once in a while, you're gonna get hit, but we're rocking.”
