Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift are two of the biggest names in music today.
Both boast millions of loyal fans, dominate the charts, and have released a number of successful albums throughout the course of their careers. Naturally, this success has led to extreme financial security.

Justin Bieber was discovered on YouTube back in 2007

When it became evident that it wasn’t happening, she parted ways with them in favor of Republic Records. However, she was devastated when she learned the Braun was the owner of masters, as she claimed that the executive had bullied her in the past.
