Taylor Swift is featured in the September issue of Vanity Fair in a cover piece titled, "Taylor Swift Reveals How She Stood Up to Apple." In it, she revelaled that she was scared of a backlash against the open letter she wrote ciriticizing Apple for not paying royalties to music streamerd during an Apple Music trial period, and surprised at the warm reaction it received. My favorite line was, "Apple treated me like I was a voice of a creative community that they actually cared about. And I found it really ironic that the multi-billion-dollar company reacted to criticism with humility, and the start-up with no cash flow [Spotify] reacted to criticism like a corporate machine." It's a good read.
