Taylor Swift’s Entire Music Catalog Is Removed From Spotify: Morning Mix
Did You Hear?
:: Big Machine Label Group (a.k.a. Taylor Swift‘s record label) has swiped the singer’s entire discography from Spotify. The move was probably made to amp up her already-insane record sales, but the streaming service was none too pleased about the decision. In a statement, Spotify said: “We believe fans should be able to listen to music wherever and whenever they want, and that artists have an absolute right to be paid for their work and protected from piracy.” [Billboard]
:: Speaking of Taylor Swift, she recently announced her 2015 world tour in support of her 1989 LP. The UK dates suspiciously circle around the Glastonbury Festival next year, which leaves the media to speculate if the singer will be performing. Time will only tell! [Digital Spy]
:: As a follow-up to her first-ever men’s fragrance (Rouge Man) released in August, Rihanna will now have a new fragrance for her female fans. The singer announced the news of the Rouge Love perfume on Twitter, but no word yet when it will be available. [MTV News]
:: In weirder news, Ariana Grande called the police on a fan who was sending her a bevy of packages. The gifts included a 42-pound pumpkin, eight Yankee candles, an anklet from Kay Jewelers and more. The cops have warned the man (a 29-year-old named Tim Normandin from Lowell, MA) to back off the singer. And we agree — it’s just plain creepy. [TMZ]
