Taylor Swift Comments on Not Streaming on Spotify

People thought Taylor Swift announcing that her album 1989 would be strictly pop back in August was shocking. When she decided not to stream her album on Spotify, the world was shocked again. Taylor was also shocked, by the reaction that is.

“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. But I could never have expected so many text messages, emails and phone calls from other artists, writers and producers saying thank you.”

Does that mean everyone else is giving way too much thought about this Spotify issue? Or is Taylor not know the importance of what she has really done? Let us know in the comments below.
