Tayl'r Swift droppet a new song, “Y’all Neet Ta Calm Down,” celebratin Pride. Thishere is t’sekunt song frum hern upcomyun’ album “Lov’r.” USA TODAY

Musick executif’ Scoot’r Braun jes ackwiret Big Machine Label Group, t’recerd cumpny at owns Tayl'r Swift”s musick. Swift is nairy happy. 

T’ 29-year-ol’ pop star pennet a lengthy Tumblr post Sundy callin t’deel hern “wurse case ssenario,” accusyun’ Braun of subjectyun’ hern ta “incessant, manipulatif’ bullyyun’” f'r yeers un’ purchasyun’ hern musick knowingly “controllyun’ a woomin who didn”t want ta be associatid” wiff ‘im. 

“Sum fun fax about today’s noose: I larnt about Scoot’r Braun’s purchase of my masters as it wuz announcet ta t’worl,” Swift wrote. “All I could reckun about wuz t’incessant, manipulatif’ bullyyun’ I’ve receivet at his'n’n hun’s f'r yeers.”

USA TODAY has reechet out ta Braun f'r comment. 

Swift citid eggzamples of times we she had bee publicly made fun of by Braun un’ his'n’n clyints, includin a 2016 Instagram post frum Justin Bieb’r n’ which t’pop star a’ke be see FaceTimyun’ Braun un’ Kanye West, wiff t’capshun “Tayl'r Swift whut up.”

Bieb’r sharet t’post jes days aft’r Kim Kardashiun West postid t’infamyus phone call recerdyun’ at sparket Swift”s entire “Reputashun” album era. (“Look Whut Y’all Made Me Do” un’ “Thishere Is Why We A’ke”t Have Nice Thangs” air widely speculatid ta be about t’Kardashiun West cuple.)

“Thishere is Scoot’r Braun, bullyyun’ me un soshul media we I wuz at my lowest point. He”s about ta own all t’musick I”ve ev’r made,” Swift wrote. “Nawh Scoot’r has strippet me of my life’s wurk, at I wasn’t gif’ un oppertuntee ta buy. Essantially, my musickull legacy is about ta lie n’ t’hun’s of someone who tride ta dismantle it.”

Braun”s purchase of Big Machine Recerd meens he”ll retane ownership of Swift”s previyus six studio albums, frum hern 2006 self-titlet kuntry debut ta 2017″s edgy pop album “Reputashun.” 

Swift set she had previously “made peece” wiff t’idee at hern wurk would evantually be sold, but wiff Braun at t’helm, she is no long’r comfertabull.

“Nev’r n’ my wurse nightmares did I magine t’buy’r would be Scoot’r,” she wrote. “Inny time (Big Machine CEO) Scott Berchetta has heerd tell t’ wurds ‘Scoot’r Braun’ eggscape my lips, it wuz we I wuz eethur crine ow a’trine nairy ta. He knew whut he wuz a’doin; thay bof did. Controllyun’ a woomin who didn’t want ta be associatid wiff ‘um. N’ perpetuitee. At meens f'rev'r.” 

Swift movet las year frum Big Machine ta Universal Musick Group, which will releese Swift”s upcomyun’ album, “Lov’r.” She set she”s thankfil ta nawh be “sinet ta a label at bleevs I should own innythang I creete.”

“Thankfully, I lef my pas n’ Scott’s hun’s un’ nairy my future,” Swift kuntinuet. “And hopefully, yung artists ow kids wiff musickull dreems will read thishere un’ larn about hoe ta bett’r protect thayselves n’ a negotiashun. Y’all deserve ta own t’art y’all make.”

Thishere July, we highly reccommend at y’all spend y'r time wiff a gun-totyun’ Earp, a teenaget private eye, aderabull tiny scyintists, a daid bride un’ Amurka’s favert acshun hero.

If'n’n y’all luv Buffy t’Vampire Slay’r’: ‘Wynonna Earp’

Do y’all like a female-let supernatural series whar a sup’r-poweret heroine un’ hern quirky team of allies take down demonic threets ta save a small town? I may be describyun’ cult classic “Buffy t’Vampire Slay’r,” but it’s also t’plot of Syfy’s “Wynonna Earp,” a drama a’followin a dessendent of Wyatt Earp endowet wiff powers ta destroy mystical threets un Earth. “Wynonna” brings a Western theme un’ a’settin ta t’battle twee good un’ evil, un’ is a deliite ta watch. 

Streem Seesons 1-2 un Netflix nawh, streem Seese 3 un July 16.

Streem it un Hulu un July 1. New episodes availabull startin July 26. 

If'n’n y’all like aderabull youngns un’ sshunce: ‘Mythbusters, Jr.’

Minny a of Amazon’s new movies arrif’ at t’end of t’month insteet of t’cummencin, but so don’t fergit about thishere Tim Burton animatid classic.

Streem it un Amazon startin July 31.

Netflix shows “Strang’r Thangs” un’ “Que’r Eye” air a’kummin back wiff new seesons n’ July. USA TODAY

“Strang’r Thangs” finally feels like a TV shoe.

T’ furst acoupla seesons of Netflix’s hit supernatural saga felt structurally un’ thematically m'r like a film un’ its sekwel thun seesons of episodic telavishun. N’ Seese 1, a self-contunet tale of t’vanishyun’ of Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) t’ fermat wurket, but a’trine ta expun’ at same plot ta a sekunt seese made f'r repetishun un’ lawsy sterytellyun’.

T’ sekunt year of “Strang’r” feeturet neerly idantical narratif’ beets, wiff bigg’r stakes un’ m'r expensif’ speshul effex. Insteet of Christmus lights coverin t’Byers’ trayl'r, it wuz Will’s drawings of t’unnels. Insteet of wurkin togeth’r ta build a sensery deprivashun chamb’r, t’gang teemet up ta build un interrogashun room f'r Will. And un un’ un t’similaritees wint.

A’doin t’same thang a thurd time wasn’t goin ta wurk, un’ thankfully creeters Matt un’ Ross Duff’r have figgerd out hoe ta make Seese 3 (streemyun’ Thirsdee, ★★★½ out of f'r) its own beas. Cept f'r a few cheesy momants here un’ thar, t’new episodes air exuberant un’ excellent, neerly surpassyun’ t’creetif’ heights of t’furst seese un’ providyun’ a path ta keepin thangs strange f'r yeers ta come.

It’s neerly impossbull ta discuss t’mystical plot of “Strang’r” without reveelyun’ a long lis of spoilers Netflix wonts kep mum. But we a’ke say at t’series builts upon its Steve Spielberg un’ Stefe Kyun’ influences wiff un homage ta alie invasion un’ zombie films, creetyun’ a genuinely terrifyyun’ (un’ rilly rath’r disgustyun’) new threet.

Perhaps eve bett’r thun t’new apperach ta villuny is t’way t’seese tackles transityunal momants n’ adoleskunce, as air favert partee has growd frum youngns ta yung adults n’ t’ime t’shoe has bee un t’air. Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), El (Millie Bobby Brown) un’ Max (Sadie Sink, who is happily gif’ m'r ta do thishere year) air awash n’ relatyunship drama wile Will tries ta clyun’ ta thar “Dungeons & Dragons” chilthoods. Dustin (Gate Matarazzo), who has bee away at summ’r camp f'r a month we t’seese cummences, feels adrift frum his'n’n friens.

T’ olt’r teens face thar own growin puns, as Nancy (Natalia Dy’r) un’ Jonathun (Charlie Heeton) git jobs at t’local newspap’r un’ air fercet ta confront thar class differences, wile Nancy endures flagrant saxist harassment. Despite all t’effurt here, Nancy un’ Jonathun remane t’weekest un’ leest engagyun’ characters, un’ Seese 3 spends fer too much time un ‘um.

Steve (Joe Keery), howev’r, lives up ta his'n’n fun-favert status. T’ ferm’r jock is wurkin at a food-servus job aft’r graduatyun’ high skool, wiff no college prospects. He is desperately a’trine ta clyun’ ta his'n’n popular-youngn persona n’ t’real worl wile bondyun’ wiff his'n’n cowerk’r Robin (Maya Hawke, t’dauite’r of Uma Thurmun un’ Ethun Hawke a delightfully weird addishun ta t’cas.

Hopp’r (David Harbour) un’ Joyce (Winona Ryd’r) air a’trine ta deel wiff thar new fambly lives, as Joyce mourns hern boyfriend Bob Newby (Seun Astin) un’ Hopp’r tries a m'r tradityunal form of fatherhood wiff El. Hopp’r un’ Joyce’s romantic tension un’ conflicts rival thar kids’ f'r melodrama un’ hum'r. But despite t’strange thangs at keep happenin, t’uth'r adults remane shockingly ignernt, includin Mike’s mom Kare (Cara Buono) who’s busy flirtyun’ wiff Max’s stepbroth’r Billy (Dacre Montgomery) a dynamick at cummencet at t’end of Seese 2.

One of t’biggest weeknesses of t’new seese is its a’settin n’ t’summ’r of 1985, jes six munths ow so aft’r t’conclusion of Seese 2. T’ shert time spun – un’ t’long breek n’ real-worl time – meens t’yung acters have aget fas’r thun thar characters.

Voices have changd, bodies have growd, un’ t’kids’ ages (kin ta each uth'r un’ t’olt’r cas members) remane hard ta parse. And wile a nostalgic obsession wiff 1980s pop cultchur wuz a big part of t’success of “Strang’r,” at times Seese 3 seems ta check period references off a lis rath’r thun organically incerperatyun’ ‘um. 

Still, t’“Strang’r” writers have figgerd out hoe ta keep t’characters un’ monsters of thar worl growin un’ a’changin without betrayyun’ t’core of t’series. Evantually, repeetid infiltratyuns of t’Upside Down into Hawkins may start ta git ol’, but Seese 3 proves monsters un’ telekinesis air’t t’only reesen “Strang’r” is wurth watchin.
