Taylor Swift Accused of Hypocrisy After Apple Music Letter

Taylor Swift looks flawless as she gets out of a car and heads to her private jet on Tuesday (June 23) in England.

The 25-year-old “Bad Blood” singer recently responded to a photographer who accused her of hypocrisy after she successfully wrote Apple a letter urging the company to pay musicians during a three-month free trial.

Freelance photographer Jason Sheldon took to his blog to criticize Taylor‘s image-licensing policy. “Like Apple, you can afford to pay for photographs so please stop forcing us to hand them over to you while you prevent us from publishing them more than once, ever.”

Taylor‘s rep told Business Insider that the contract “clearly states that any photographer shooting The 1989 World Tour has the opportunity for further use of said photographs with management’s approval.”

    Poor Taylor, leave her alone, of course she need the money that she’s asking for… How she’s going to pay the private plane fees?

    She’s coming across a bit like a cult leader..everyone better follow her. No one ever say anything against her…surrounds herself with empty headed models and pop stars who kiss her a$$. In what way has she changed the music industry. For those who aren’t drones the internet provides other avenues for you to find music you want to hear. And if you are tech savvy you’d know that.

    Wtf with the belt Taylor? Looks so stupid and it’s only to show off her waistline. Taylor, the world knows you’re very thin, no biggie to wear a loose fitting shirt.

  • Francesca Simoni

    she’s so greedy

  • Sofia

    So, where are the fans defending her actions? Aren’t photographers artists too? Or they are not worthy… smh

  • Ignii

    That guy is nothing but a jerk! What does he know about Taylor? She didn’t do that for herself!!! Don’t forget she was the most charitable person in 2012,2013,2014. Have a look at all the tweets from people who congratulate and thank her!

    I’m a photographer myself,but this guys sounds ridiculous now…
    If you are official photographer at event you pay licence and you sign agreement… read the small font always ;) After Hulk Beyonce’s photographs those type if publications will have to be approved,before published ;) Its all about the image. And at the end of the day YOU get paid by your agency you sell pictures to. So nope…not really as Apple ;)

    Am I the only one who finds it a little sketchy that in 1 day she was able to get a big name company to change its policies? I’ve never seen one person, celebrity or not, who writes a complaint and gets a company to change everything in one day ONE DAY.

    Who would think Taylor Swift would have this much clout. Something about this whole thing is extremely fishy.
