Taylor Swift makes millions upon millions every year, so it’s no surprise to see her name in the headlines, especially after her new album, 1989 just dropped this October.
But Swift has recently made the decision to pull herself out of Spotify, which means her music will no longer be available for streaming for the people who want to listen to it there. Her whole catalog is now off of the site, and she wasn’t expecting this large of a reaction, or much of a negative one, either. She talked about the incident when she sat down with The Hollywood Reporter.
“I didn’t think that it would be shocking to anyone,” Swift said. “With as many ways as artists are personalizing their musical distribution, it didn’t occur to me that this would be anything that anyone would talk about.”
After all the articles Dan Newlin keeps forwarding me, it sure seems like anything the new pop singer does ends up getting her name at the top of hundreds and articles and headlines.
Luckily for T-Swift, not all the comments made on her decision to remove herself from the popular online streaming option was all negative. She did end up getting a ton of support and respect from many other artists that are in the industry.
“I could never have expected so many text messages, emails and phone calls from other artists, writers and producers saying thank you,” she told The Hollywood Reporter.
