Taylor Swift just responded to her victory over Apple Music. I don’t think this is a pr stunt, as some have suggested. Apple really intended not to pay artists for 90 days for streaming. I don’t know why they created a situation where one artist, Taylor Swift, would bring them down. They didn’t listen to complaints from anyone else. But “1989” is selling after 8 months. Without it, they’d have been in a really sticky place to launch this week.
I am elated and relieved. Thank you for your words of support today. They listened to us.
