Wasn't sure that one liner was open for interpretation.
, let's go read on Taylor Swift and question everything we know about her shittiness because we are not 'educated' enough to post about her.
Also, in all seriousness, this debate was about Spotify and her relation to it. In all fairness, I don't think us not knowing about all her achievements that you went on about is at all relevant to the topic. So I was under the impression that as long as you know the general idea of her and what Spotify is, you are fully qualified to post in this topic, preferably without a teenage girl getting upset with you.
Yes please do read about her and tell me what is shitty about her at all. Are you serious? Where did you come from?
"he group praised Swift, 23, for being the youngest person ever to receive the Ripple of Hope Award from the Robert F. Kennedy Center for her charity work, for donating $4 million to the Country Hall of Fame Museum, and for her work with children who have cancer."
SO SHITTY SO SO SHITTY ENJOY THAT QUOTE
Either way, she's already a millionaire. Seems a bit greedy to be already be making a ton of money and then not make as much as you want to from a free streaming service that gives 70% of its profits back to the music industry and say, "Wah. I don't get enough. I'm taking my music off of here."
She said she made $500,000 from them in the past year. Even if Spotify isn't telling the truth, how is $500,000 a bad thing? She didn't have a new album out. It's not crazy to think that when you don't have any new music coming out then you probably won't make as much money as you would when you do.
I don't think there's a cap on stuff like this and I find some of this inherently sexist, honestly. It's the same shit as people saying that just because women make .96 to ever 1.00 that a man makes it isn't THAT big of a gap so we should just accept it. No equality is equality and fair pay is fair pay. If I were an artist who produced music and artwork I would want the most revenue I could get from it.
You don't need to have your music streaming on tons of services when there are so many. Other streaming services pay out more because really why should they have a large cut at all!?! They're not doing anything revolutionary.
If this were other forms of artwork I would NEVER expect a famous artist who paints masterpieces to take less for their work than they can get.
I would NEVER expect a regular Joe to get 30$/hour for his welding work when he can maximize his earnings by working at another shop and recieving 36$/hour. People are just mad because she's making millions while the average person can't break 50k a year. BOOHOO. Let's rip on a woman who is savvy enough to maximize her earnings.
That doesn't sound like 'an incorrect argument', that sounds like an opinion.

Thank you for playing.
