Taylor Swift Back On Spotify? Her Label Boss Explains What It Would Take For Her Return

Taylor Swift looks like she’s literally glowing in her white jacket while out with friends on Wednesday evening (February 4) in Los Angeles.

Recently, the 25-year-old pop singer’s label boss, Scott Borchetta, opened up more about her controversial departure from Spotify.

“[Taylor's catalog] is arguably the most important current catalog there is,” Scott told The Hollywood Reporter. “When I went to her and said I want to pull the whole thing, she was completely in. Would I have done it if she didn’t want to? No. We want to make sure that the songwriters [and] publishers have a voice in this, that everybody has some acknowledgement of who is being affected by this system, and she was the loudest megaphone.”

He continued, explaining that in order for her to return to Spotify, it would need to be “a company that understands the different needs” they have.

    Is she dating Hozier now?

    This is one annoying bitch. And not as sweet as she likes you to believe she is.

  • Lee

    Ppl like her are greedy but in order to hide the fact, they spew all this BS about “artistic rights”.

  • kellyf

    The most important catalogue there is? She certainly thinks highly of herself. Hers isn’t even close to being the most important one – as evidenced by the fact that no one has talked about the fact that she left in months.

  • Teni Eliza

    This proves she’s in the business solely for the money and fame, and not to actually spread her “art”. This whole thing is ridiculous. The girl has several million dollar homes and everything else others would sell their souls for, yet she won’t allow fans to stream her music because she’s not getting paid enough. It’s ridiculous.

  • AlarTruve

    Not her words… Grasp harder.

  • AlarTruve

    Music industry is 100% behind Taylor and her decision. It takes big names to take a stand and its great that Taylor took it. Spotify will be forced to give in soon (with Jay Z getting into streaming business and he has the clout to pull in big names)) and offer songwriters better deals for their work.

  • Sandy McFarlane

    the bitch better not!!!!!!

  • kellyf

    I never said she said them, but her label boss’ words represent her attitude towards it. That’s not grasping. The music industry might be behind her, as you say, but tell me, which one of her 5 mansions do you think she goes to when she’s feeling down about the fact that people struggling to get by aren’t having to pay even more of their hard earned dollars to make her wealthier than she already is? Yes, millionaire Taylor and the millionaire industry execs… they are the true victims here.

  • bbm

    she loves those sandals! (me too)

  • WWilson

    Why is Taylor trying to hide? It looks like she got caught with a new boyfriend and doesn’t want to be seen??

  • Lou Vasquez

    Spotify is doing just fine with out her and every one all ready knows what greedy record labels like Big Machine Records and greedy artist like Taylor Swift need and want which is more money then any one else.

  • AlarTruve

    This is not about her. She has the power to speak for smaller artists who are robbed royally by entitled folks like you.

  • AlarTruve

    And people who think they have the right for free music are not greedy? Lmao.

  • kellyf

    Advocating for cash-strapped consumers makes me entitled… that’s laughable. There are certainly cash-strapped artists too, but they’re dying to get their music on places like Spotify and Pandora because the exposure is massively valuable for them. And Taylor Swift didn’t pull her catalogue for them, she pulled it because she was unhappy with what SHE was getting. Everyone deserves their fair share, but the assertion that Taylor Swift is the victim is absurd because she’s still a millionaire and if she demands more, she and her people know that companies like Spotify are never just going to eat the difference – it’s a cost that is going to be handed directly to consumers who are already shelling out a ton of their hard earned dollars to cushion Swift’s already overflowing pockets. I mean, honestly.

  • Lou Vasquez

    I will say something nice about Taylor Swift I do like her skirts getting shorter and shorter especially this peace of rag she has on in these pictures. Nice and slutty!!

  • Sarah-Julia Karbowniczek

    spotify isn’t a free service – either you pay with a subscription or you pay by listening to radio spots…

  • Lou Vasquez

    I was hoping they where taking her too jail for brain washing all her Cult followers aka Swifties into buying so many albums!!

  • http://lizadequilla.blogspot.com/ Liza Dequilla

    Definitely! I love her music but I don’t like people who plays both sides.

    Maybe she realized that her “royalty” decreased after pulling out. Meh.

  • http://lizadequilla.blogspot.com/ Liza Dequilla

    I really hated back then when she said music should not be for free. like seriously????

  • Ignii

    She is right!!!! She does that not only for her but for smaller artists. On the photos here she is with Hozier and trying to hide under a hoodie.

  • Brian Green

    Yes and she got caught. Nice how she tried to hide her face. Normaly she likes to pose for the paps. Hozier, James Bay, Borns or Matt Healy. She test many long hair guys to find the perfect boyfriend to show it puplic.

  • Brian Green

    I think she will give her music to the streaming service of Jay-Z for a good price!

  • Brian Green

    Yes it’s sad that her fans are so brainwashed because Taylor is just a big liar. For her just counts $$$$.

  • Brian Green

    Yes she gets more and more slutty and that’s sad. But her long hair lovers like this.

  • Ignii

    It’s Hozier!

  • Ignii

    She remains the best!

  • Lou Vasquez

    Funny how Taylor is trying to cover her face yet she has a big old smile on her face this girl is so egotistical she thinks she’s smarter then the media!! She thought everyone in the media would jump at the fact that she was out with Hozier!! Sorry Taylor everyone all ready knows you are a Lesbian and if this guy hasn’t figured it out sorry to burst your bubble but if you are trying to get some your just wasting your time.

  • Ignii

    The haters are gonna hate hate hate….
