There’s been a lot of controversy surrounding Apple’s new streaming music service, Apple Music. More specifically, there’s been debate over the promised three month trial period. Why? Because it’s going to be free – not just for us, but for the artists supplying the music as well. And by that, we mean they’re giving it to us for free. Possibly not by choice.

Taylor Swift is not one to take such things lying down. The mega successful artist posted an open letter on her Tumblr page this weekend calling for Apple to properly compensate the artists and musicians featured on their new service.

What she said:

“I say to Apple with all due respect, it’s 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 don’t ask you for free iPhones. Please don’t ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation.”

What she meant to add:

OR ELSE I WILL SMITE YOU WITH MY LEGION OF SWIFTIES UNTIL YOU BEG FOR MERCY AND STEVE JOBS’ RESURRECTION.

Needless to say, Apple reversed their decision within hours.

And Calvin Harris was a happy boy about his girlfriend’s powers.

That’s a good boyfriend. We don’t foresee any songs about him streaming on Apple Music any time soon.
