Taylor Swift just went up against the biggest company in the world and WON.
That's unheard of. No one has ever had that kind of star-power before. But now, Taylor Swift has it. Taylor was pissed that Apple thought it was going to get away with not paying the artists whose music would be played on their new music streaming service for the first three FREE trial month period. AKA BS. Taylor wasn't having any of that so instead of dismissing it since it really didn't hurt her either way, she pounced. Attacked politely. And claimed an utter victory! This will definitely go down in the history books!!!
So here's how the battle went down:
Swift tweets at Apple by attaching a letter of hers from Tumblr.
Taylor speaks politely and confidently ending with a snippy, "We don't ask you for free iPhones. Please don't ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation."
AND TAYLOR STRIKES AGAIN.
Not only does Taylor get an outpour of support from her millions of fans, but she also gets backing from major celebrities and recording studios. Like woah.
Taylor Swift then gets a personal call from the Apple VP himself as well as this personal tweet. And as the world watches...everyone gasps because for the first time in Apple's history...Apple loses.
TAYLOR FOR THE WIN.
The media is celebrating on every major platform known to man. Everyone's shocked she did it and it only took 48 hours. Insane.
Taylor attacked and conquered the most powerful company in the world by posting a message to Tumblr. She's stronger and more powerful than ever and now everyone knows it.
And Swift thinks to herself, "All in a day's work."
