It looks like Taylor Swift and Spotify will never get back together, as the singer negatively compared the Spotify’s response to her withdrawal of her albums last year to that of her recent criticism of Apple.
Taylor Swift explained that Apple treated her like a member of a creative community they actually cared about, after Apple changed its plans not to pay copyright owners for streams on its Apple Music service’s free trial because of Swift’s criticism. The singer pointed out that Apple, a multi-billion-dollar company, reacted to her criticism with humility, while Spotify, a start-up with no cash flow, reacted to it like a corporate machine.
In response, Spotify defended its “freemium” model and its support for content creators. Perhaps, Swift was referring to behind-the-scenes negotiations with the streaming service when talking about the corporate machine.
Today, Swift’s music is available on Apple Music and other streaming services that provide access to her albums only to paying users. There is still no Swift’s music on Spotify, and it seems likely to remain the case for some time.
The singer also admitted that she worries about the reaction of the public when commenting about digital music and artists’ rights. However, even before the first dispute with Spotify in 2014, Taylor made her views known – for instance, talking about the value of music in the streaming age for the Wall Street Journal a year ago. She explained that music is art, and is therefore valuable. This is why consumers should pay for it. At the time, Swift predicted that individual artists and their labels would once decide what an album’s price point is, hopefully not underestimating their works.

Kindly compare music of today's generation to the music of 1990's and you will know what art is.
|She is just a shill for the machine, they are the ones who send the trolls,they are the ones buying all the politicians for the agenda of there own. Dont you remember the amounts of bands that were broken up cause of labels? And because of the greed of the companys in particular. The artists will get paid one way or nother the corporate vampires however have no talents of worth except being greed driven backstabbers. Hmm I guess they also will get paid one way or another, they will become politicians.|
