Taylor Swift Kicked Apple In The Dick

Apple, who made $182B last year, thought it would a good idea to not pay artists during the free three month trial period for their new music streaming service, Apple Music. Unfortunately, musicians aren’t Chinese children who you don’t have to pay to make iPhones, so the biggest musical artist in the world right now took issue with that. That artist being Taylor Swift, who didn’t have stationary and a quill nearby, so she wrote a really long open letter to Apple and posted it on the most Taylor Swift place imaginable: Tumblr  (read it here). And before Lena Dunham had a chance to print the post off and take it to Michael’s, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services, Eddy Cue (nice pun on the last name), tweeted “#AppleMusic will pay artist for streaming, even during customer’s free trial period“. In repsonse, Katy Perry is also considering writing a letter on MySpace to Napster.
