Celebrities Are Thanking Taylor Swift For Taking A Stand Against Apple
You may have heard Taylor Swift penned an open letter to Apple about its intended treatment of musicians during the trial run of Apple Music.
Originally, the company did not plan on paying artists during the three-month period.
However, since Taylor wrote her letter, Apple changed its tune and decided to pay artists for any streaming of their music.
Naturally, many musicians are pleased with Apple's reversal, and they took to Twitter to thank TSwift for speaking up.
Here are some of the best responses from grateful musicians.
