In reality, Justin Bieber’s tour has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the dates being locked down for the summer of next year instead.
But the album comment is what bothered Swift’s fans the most as they saw it as Scooter tolling their idol.
One such fan commented: ‘don’t let this distract u from the fact that folklore is coming out tonight and that Taylor is artist of the decade, while user @afterglowbrandon shared with Scooter the dictionary meaning of “desperation,” as being “a state of despair, typically one which results in rash or extreme behavior.’ Yikes!
As for Taylor’s original post, it read: ‘Surprise. Tonight at midnight I’ll be releasing my 8th studio album, folklore; an entire brand new album of songs I’ve poured all of my whims, dreams, fears, and musings into.’
