I feel this deserves an explanation because Apple has been and will continue to be one of my best partners in selling music and creating ways for me to connect with my fans. I respect the company and the truly ingenious minds that have created a legacy based on innovation and pushing the right boundaries.</div> <div></div> <div>Im sure you are aware that Apple Music will be offering a free 3 month trial to anyone who signs up for the service. Im not sure you know that Apple Music will not be paying writers, producers, or artists for those three months. I find it to be shocking, disappointing, and completely unlike this historically progressive and generous company.</div> <div></div> <div>This is not about me. Thankfully I am on my fifth album and can support myself, my band, crew, and entire management team by playing live shows. This is about the new artist or band that has just released their first single and will not be paid for its success. This is about the young songwriter who just got his or her first cut and thought that the royalties from that would get them out of debt. This is about the producer who works tirelessly to innovate and create, just like the innovators and creators at Apple are pioneering in their fieldbut will not get paid for a quarter of a years worth of plays on his or her songs.</div> <div></div> <div>These are not the complaints of a spoiled, petulant child. These are the echoed sentiments of every artist, writer and producer in my social circles who are afraid to speak up publicly because we admire and respect Apple so much. We simply do not respect this particular call.</div> <div></div> <div>I realize that Apple is working towards a goal of paid streaming. I think that is beautiful progress. We know how astronomically successful Apple has been and we know that this incredible company has the money to pay artists, writers and producers for the 3 month trial period even if it is free for the fans trying it out.</div> <div></div> <div>Three months is a long time to go unpaid, and it is unfair to ask anyone to work for nothing. I say this with love, reverence, and admiration for everything else Apple has done. I hope that soon I can join them in the progression towards a streaming model that seems fair to those who create this music. I think this could be the platform that gets it right.</div> <div></div> <div>But I say to Apple with all due respect, its not too late to change this policy and change the minds of those in the music industry who will be deeply and gravely affected by this. We dont ask you for free iPhones. Please dont ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation.</div> <div></div> <div>Taylor</div> <div></div> <div></div> <p>From <a href="http://taylor-swift.groundctrl.net/">taylor-swift.groundctrl.net</a></p>Mon, 22 Jun 2015 11:21:00 -0700http://taylor-swift.groundctrl.net/news/251533Taylor Invites Special Guests to Detroit show<br /><img src="https://groundctrl.s3.amazonaws.com/clients/taylorswift/media/01/11/images/assets/medium.1PmMSIRjCkb5NfuVjDpANA8By-8sawO1SI5mW527V5M.jpg" /><br /><p>Fans attending<em>The 1989 World Tour</em>in Detroit got TWO special suprises on Saturday!</p> <p>Dan Reynolds from the GRAMMY Award winning band Imagine Dragons joined Taylor for a special duet performance of the hit song "Radioactive."</p> <p>Fellow "Bad Blood" co-stars and supermodels Gigi Hadid and Martha Hunt also joined Taylor onstage to hit the catwalk.</p> <p><em>Photo credit: Larry Busacca at Getty Images</em></p> <p>From <a href="http://taylor-swift.groundctrl.net/">taylor-swift.groundctrl.net</a></p>Mon, 01 Jun 2015 08:01:00 -0700http://taylor-swift.groundctrl.net/news/249593Taylor Notches Six Months at No. 1 on Billboard Artist 100<br /><img src="https://groundctrl.s3.amazonaws.com/clients/taylorswift/media/05/01/images/assets/medium.2aAT1DBxxHN9WUtHhuJ_kpdAHP1d-uabbrIQqTpDvKE.png" /><br /><p>Taylor notches six months at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Artist 100 chart!

People seem to love the album, and were all high-fiving each other, but I remember all the sit-downs in the conference rooms, where I would get kind of called in front of a group of people who have worked with me for years. They said, "Are you really sure you want to do this? Are you sure you want to call the album 1989? We think its a weird title. Are you sure you want to put an album cover out that has less than half of your face on it? Are you positive that you want to take a genre that you cemented yourself in, and switch to one that you are a newcomer to?" And answering all of those questions with "Yes, Im sure" really frustrated me at the time -- like, "Guys, dont you understand, this is what Im dying to do?"
