CUPERTINO, CA -- She couldn't just shake it off. T Swizzle is apparently pretty swift when it comes to her bottom line. She just chewed-out Apple!

In an open letter to the company (which she posted online), the country turned pop star said her latest album wouldn't be available on their new streaming service because they weren't going to pay royalties during the free-trial period.

"We don't ask you for free I-phones. Please don't ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation..." is how she put it.

Well, not wanting bad blood, Apple responded with a tweet: "we hear you @Taylorswift13 and indie artists. Love, Apple." In other words, they are going to pay up.

It may be all a little perplexing, assuming Taylor’s finances are safe and sound, but it could be considered a service for less high-profile singers.
