IT IS UNCLEAR WHETHER THERE IS NOW "MAD LOVE" BETWEEN THE PARTIES: So, Taylor Swift posted an open letter yesterday explaining why she was withholding 1989 from Apple Music's streaming service, most notably that during the three month free trial of the service, Apple was paying no royalties to performers or songwriters. Apple quickly responded by changing its policy, confirming in a series of tweets that "#AppleMusic will pay artist for streaming, even during customer’s free trial period." No word on if the album will make its way there yet, but, y'know, streamers gotta stream stream stream stream.
