Taylor Swift has made it clear she doesn't support the business practices of current music streaming services.
And this is how these services fall apart...
Make some real music that isnt full of selfish, egotistical, lyrics and maybe I'll give a damn about your opinions Miss. Swift
Never cared for her music. The times I listened to it, I torrented them.
It's fine with me if all the services removed her music to save me a few bucks. She doesn't like it, so take her music off. In fact a lot of big artists seem to think they are too big for services, so remove them and let them see what happens when people no longer come across their music and smaller artists get more popular. It'd be so nice to have good music more up front and not have to shuffle through crap like "Shake It Off" to get to it.
Like it or not, she's one of the most popular artists right now. Her work alone no doubt pays the bills of many, many Apple employees. And no artist wants to be paid nothing to a third of a penny for people partaking of their work. And seriously, it really isn't Apple's place to stream content and pretend like they owe no one any royalties.
Good the less she is streamed , the quicker she might fade away . No more overproduced songs about each of her exes or rival songstresses Joke aside , i'm sure she'll enjoy being unpaid a whole year instead with people torrenting or streaming illegally her stuff .
Ok.. Say what you want about Taylor Swift... But you do realize she's the most powerful woman in music.
beyonce says hi. not that im a fan of either of their music.
Me either... But at the moment... Taylor Swift is the most powerful woman in music entertainment.
That form of media just isnt over valued like it used to be. Shes an idiot
Thing is, she will be paid, she quite clearly didnt read her contract or talked to her agent about this before she opened her mouth. Or better still, the whole story was made up. Everyday of our lifes the media are spinning bullcrap on a massive scale.
How are people giving Taylor hell for this? She is simply sticking up for artists that cannot survive without that income. Those artists don't have a voice, but Taylor uses her platform to help other artists. How would you like if you went to work and were told, "We just started a new program where we are offering our customers 3 months of free access. Because of this we are going to stop paying you while this free access is in affect." Art is work, you get paid for work. People that download everything and steal music, games and movies are just thieves. It's stealing.
