So, Taylor Swift is using social media to extort Apple Music. Her issue is that Apple Music was going to offer her music (as well as other artists) for free for three months, in order to entice listeners to try the service.
Now, I would be compassionate if Taylor Swift was a starving artist. If she couldn’t eat for three months due to this. This clearly isn’t the case. From all appearances, Taylor is under zero financial duress. And the music in question is not unreleased tracks—this is existing work for which she has already earned a lot of money.
