Was Taylor Swift’s Stand Against Apple a Publicity Stunt?
When Apple said it wasn’t going to pay artists during the three-month free trial of its new streaming service, TAYLOR SWIFT went all “Braveheart” on them. And they immediately gave in. And now, Taylor has agreed to let them stream her music.
Well, a lot of people think this was all too convenient. Especially since Taylor still doesn’t let streaming services like Spotify have her music . . . even though they’re basically the same thing.
So was this all a publicity stunt engineered by Taylor and Apple?
Also, TAYLOR SWIFT and CALVIN HARRIS have barely been together long enough to be a couple . . . although he IS watching her cats for her while she’s on tour. Still, they’ve just been named the highest-paid celebrity couple of the year.
“Forbes” magazine is releasing its list of the highest-paid celebrities next week, and as a preview, they announced the three highest-paid couples.
Taylor and Calvin took the top spot with $146 million . . . BEYONCÉ and JAY Z followed with $110.5 million . . . and MIRANDA LAMBERT and BLAKE SHELTON came in third with $57 million.
