Katy Perry hits out at Taylor Swift AGAIN

At the time, Swift said there was another female pop singer who stole some of her back-up dancers and "basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour".

Someone please procure industrial strength cutting pliers because if Katy Perry is chained to the rhythm, then the rest of us are chained to this endless pop music war she's waging with Taylor Swift.

Swift accused Spotify of devaluing artists by essentially giving music away for free, pointing to the platform's advertising-backed tier that gives access to non-subscribers.

A year later, an entirely different dispute, this time with Apple and its new-at-the-time Apple Music service, ended much differently.

Swift had initially threatened to boycott Apple Music over not paying artists for streams by listeners on three-month free trial periods.

Her latest single, Swish Swish, is a pretty brazen diss track directed in Swift's direction, and in interviews to accompany the album she hasn't been shy about discussing her beef with Swift.

Britain's snap election backfires on Prime Minister Theresa May
Mr James Morris, a pollster who used to work for Labour, credited Mr Corbyn's "disciplined populism" for the party's performance. The Tories campaigned against a "coalition of chaos" - but now it is they who lead exactly that.

In fact, Pence told the 12 NASA astronaut newcomers that they "may" return to the Moon or travel to Mars, not that they "will". That's more than double the previous record: 8,000 applied in 1978, when the space shuttles were close to launching.

Trump Praises Rep. Hensarling for Dodd-Frank Repeal
They promised us it would end "too big to fail" but instead it cynically codified "too big to fail" banks into law". The Financial Choice Act would allow the conditions for the next financial crisis to fester, Democrats say.

It hasn't been confirmed how long Taylor's music will stay on the streaming site.

So the question this morning is, why are Taylor Swift's albums now on Spotify?

A rep for Swift did not immediately return a call seeking comment. It meant that the millions of Spotify users and casual Taylor Swift fans who want to hear her music would have to buy, rather than stream, her albums.

Perhaps most importantly (intimations of dueling pop queen pettiness notwithstanding and not worth repeating), Swift hasn't released a record in some time.

The singer will also embark on her North American tour to promote her latest album. After the Recording Industry Association of America notified Swift's camp her song catalog was approaching 100 million certified units earlier this week, she made a decision to quickly pull the trigger, sources say. Valuable things should be paid for.
