There’s apparently been some nastiness between Taylor Swift and her erstwhile recording company which has turned even more unpleasant since Swift egged her fans on to torment said record company.
I don’t claim to know all the ins and outs of this issue, but the rule of thumb in any imbroglio of this nature is that the money people (in this case the record company) are always going to try to screw the ideas people (that would be Swift, here); so the default position in all this would be to think, with lots of justification, that once again, the record industry is trying to chisel the artist. (Think of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s John Fogerty not able to perform Proud Mary for years because of the record company bastards and publishing deals.)
That said, however, this is the serial feuder and generally-spiteful Taylor Swift we’re talking about, so I think I’ll reserve judgment, just this once. Millionaires squabbling with millionaires:
