Taylor Swift Slams Apple Music
Apple just announced Apple Music, a streaming service that would cost $9.99 a month after a three-month free trial. But during the free trial, artists, writers, and producers would NOT be paid, and Taylor Swift is NOT happy.
Newser reported that Taylor tweeted an open letter to Apple from her Tumblr account saying, "I find it to be shocking, disappointing, and completely unlike this historically progressive and generous company...three months is a long time to go unpaid, and it is unfair to ask anyone to work for nothing." She added that her new album 1989 wouldn't be on the service.
She said she isn't speaking up as a, "spoiled, petulant child," but for the smaller artists who are struggling to make ends meet.
