Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift is being sued for copyright infringement by a struggling musician, who claims that the superstar ripped off one of his songs for the lyrics of her mega-hit ‘Shake It Off’.

American R&B singer Jesse Braham alleges that Swift uses substantially the same 22-word phrase she uses in the chorus for her former Number 1 single ‘Shake It Off’ as he did for his 2013 song ‘Haters Gone Hate’. According to legal papers, Braham is claiming copyright infringement of the phrases “haters gone hate” and “playas gone play”, which also appear in Swift’s song.

She doesn’t quite have miraculous healing powers (not just yet anyway) but, earlier this week, Swift certainly put a smile on the face of a 6-year-old girl battling cancer.

“I think I should take some time off,” she confessed in a new interview. “People might need a break from me. I'm going to hang out with friends. Write new music. Maybe not write new music. I don't know,” she said.

Taylor Swift may be the toast of pretty much the entire world right now, but there’s one person who definitely doesn’t want to be part of her “squad”. Fellow pop star Rihanna has said that she wouldn’t join the ‘Bad Blood’ singer on stage if she was asked, because to her it wouldn’t make sense.

Throughout her 1989 World Tour, Swift has attracted tons of headlines for bringing a huge array of female celebrities – plus Matt LeBlanc, for some reason - up on stage with her. “Please welcome to the stage…” has become one of the most parodied phrases of the summer, ending up in that hilarious viral video.

Taylor Swift vs Katy Perry round 458 (probably)! The ‘Shake It Off’ singer suspects that her nemesis Katy Perry is the mastermind behind Miley Cyrus’ recent criticisms of her.

Cyrus has recently spoken of her distaste for Tay’s ‘Bad Blood’ music video, criticising it for being “violent”, and has recently hinted that she and her current boyfriend Calvin Harris will be the prime targets of her upcoming MTV VMAs performance on August 30th.

Taylor Swift Relaxes Image Rights Restrictions After Open Letter By Photographer

Following a recent open letter by a British photographer, Taylor Swift has apparently relaxed restrictions on image rights at her live shows. The rules have apparently been renegotiated between Swift’s representatives and groups representing photographers and news agencies in the US.

Walsall-based freelance photographer Jason Sheldon posted an open letter on his personal blog back in June accusing Swift of “double standards” in her (eventually successful) dispute with Apple Music over the three-month trial period for their streaming service which meant that artists would not be paid royalties for their music.

Taylor Swift - Manchester Arena - June 24th 2015 Live Review


"Hello, I'm Taylor, and I love seeing a sold out Manchester Arena", called Taylor Swift as if the fifteen thousand people screeching from the stands didn't know who she was. For someone with seven Grammy Awards, Swift immediately came across as an incredibly humble performer. This could be one of the best things about her performance at Manchester Arena on Wednesday night - her vigorous determination and beaming smile showed that she wanted to be on stage as much as her fans did.

Taylor Swift - Manchester Arena - June 24th 2015 Live Review

Attracting fans of all ages from across the world, Swift was met with a tremendous applause and insanely strong reaction from the crowd as she launched straight into 'Welcome to New York'. It set the scene well; we were all there for an evening with Swift in the magical musical world she had created. "There's something else you should know about me", she said after her first song. "I was born in 1989!"

Stories about heartbreak, believing in yourself and (surprise, surprise) heartbreak again were honest, and moving. Her joyous and bubbly personality was heightened by moments where she played the wrong note on the piano (and informed everyone) and laughed when one of her backing dancers made a funny face at her from behind a clear screen. These minor moments humanised her performance, reminding the audience that the superstar on stage was a real person, not just a manufactured pop robot.

Throughout his lengthy and prestigious career, singer-songwriter James Taylor has achieved many great things, but a US Number One album has always eluded him: until today! Taylor’s 47 year wait for a Billboard chart topping LP came to an end this week as it was announced that his new effort Before This World had outsold all rivals.

According to Nielsen SoundScan, Taylor’s 17th studio album sold 97,000 copies in its first week of release to debut atop the Billboard 200, with 96,000 of those coming through actual album sales (as opposed to streaming or track equivalents).

Photographer Calls Out Taylor Swift For "Double Standards" In Apple Music Stance


Taylor Swift

A photographer has published an open letter accusing Taylor Swift of “double standards” in her hardline stance over the Apple Music streaming service.

Earlier on Monday (June 22nd), the pop star made headlines after a letter she addressed to Apple Music caused a U-turn in its policy. Swift had claimed that the company’s stance on withholding payments to artists during a three month trial period was “not fair”, and had threatened to prevent Apple from streaming her current smash hit album 1989.

Sheldon effectively argued that this stance was hypocritical because she does not play fair over image rights. “If you don't like being exploited, that's great - make a huge statement about it, and you'll have my support,” he wrote. “But how about making sure you're not guilty of the very same tactic before you have a pop at someone else?”

Taylor Swift has criticised Apple’s new streaming service ‘Apple Music’ in a lengthly open letter posted on the singer’s personal Tumblr page. In the letter Swift attacks Apple for its decision not to pay artists royalties during the three-month free trial of its new streaming service. It’s not the first time the singer has hit out against streaming companies as last year she famously pulled all of her music from Apple's rival Spotify.

Taylor SwiftDon’t expect to hear Taylor Swift’s 1989 on Apple Music anytime soon.

Swift begins the letter, titled ‘To Apple love Taylor’, by telling fans she wishes to explain why she’ll be holding back her million selling album, 1989, from Apple Music. “I’m sure you are aware that Apple Music will be offering a free three month trial to anyone who signs up for the service,” Swift begins.

Taylor Swift Snubbing Apple Music By Refusing To Let '1989' Be Available


Taylor Swift Apple

Taylor Swift is set to give a big snub to Apple Music when it launches officially at the end of the month, with reports emerging that the singer will not be making her current album 1989 available to the new streaming service.

Swift became the most prominent advocate of the non-Spotify model of music distribution at the end of the last year, when she removed her entire back catalogue from the streaming site just before the release of 1989. It didn’t seem to harm her sales – it has sold in excess of five million copies to date, making it the biggest selling album of 2014 and 2015 (so far).
