She attacked and she conquered and now she's making her mark. Taylor Swift went up against the biggest tech company in the world, Apple. She claimed that it was ridiculous that they would not be paying artists royalties for the first three month trial period. But then Taylor sent a letter via Tumblr/Twitter and Apple changed their mind changing the policy. Everyone watched in awe that a pop star changed the face of music forever.
"Screaming, crying, perfect storms."
She made quite a stink on Apple getting hundreds of fans and artists to back her. Photographers were calling her a hypocrite yet she powered through remaining unscathed. So on Thursday, Taylor took to Twitter to tell that world that since Apple changed their mind, Taylor changed hers. Taylor's album '1989' will be on Apple Music which is not only beneficial for Taylor Swift but also for Apple Music as they try to dominate the streaming market.
"I can make all the tables turn."
With the announcement came a lot of backlash with fans demanding answers. With her success at tearing down the biggest tech company within a day by using social media, many believed it was all set up in the first place. It was a publicity stunt and exclusive deal to benefit both companies however Swift eased tensions saying nothing behind the scenes happened which we hope is true.
"Cause darling I'm a nightmare dressed like a day dream."
Eddy Cue, Apple's Senior Vice President tweeted back at Swift guaranteeing that the company would "always make sure that artists are paid." For Swift, this is a win-win.
"They'll tell you I'm insane."
Taylor is still currently on her 1989 tour. She just had shows in Glasgow, Scotland and Manchester, England attracting enormous loving crowds. Her tour is one of the most impressive tours to cross the globe and now she's one of the most powerful artists in the industry thanks to Apple. Keep the ball rolling Taylor...
