With the release of her anger-filled single Look What You Made Me Do, Taylor Swift reportedly feel the complete opposite with her new beau, Joe Alwyn.
Everyone is surely going nuts with all the shade and diss her new song has, but she is probably having a good time with her cool new boyfriend now. According to People, Taytay has found a new inspiration in Joe and that the couple is “very happy together”.
As the sources would say, “Her decision to keep her relationship with Joe quiet is making her happy.” They have been getting to know each other slowly without any pressure. For the past few months, the two has spent more time together while Swift flies back and forth from U.S. to Joe’s place at U.K.
Joe Alwyn is a well-known British actor, in fact, he is currently filming his upcoming movie The Favourite.
According to the report, Joe is indeed very happy spending time at home with the Wildest Dreams singer. “they seem to be on the same page. Joe is getting to know Taylor’s parents and everyone likes him. He is very supportive of her work,” the source added.
The two started in disguise, unlike any other Taylor Swift’s romance. Joe and the popstar were first linked in May which reports bannered Taylor spending days in London with a wig to cover up herself.
It was Taylor’s decision to keep her relationship with the 26-year-old actor as a secret. “She barely told any of her friends. [Taylor] got buried in media being on top of her life during the last relationship, so she tried everything in her power to not have that happen again. She worked very closely with her security team and management to make sure her life going forward was private. All of that madness really affected her,” reports said.
Despite the nasty rumors that revolve around Taylor Swift and her new found love, let’s all wish her the best. She deserves it. Everyone deserves it. Hmm, but are we going to hear a new song coming out soon about this new lover, once this relationship won’t work out? Let’s wait for it people!
What do you think, guys? Isn’t Taylor and Joe a cute couple?
After Taylor Swift was criticized by a photographer for being a hypocrite in her letter to Apple, she suddenly started crediting photos in her Social Media accounts.
It all started with Taylor’s open letter to Apple
On June 21, 2015, Taylor Swift made a post on Tumblr entitled “To Apple, Love Taylor.” In the open letter, Taylor explained why she was withdrawing her album 1989 from their music streaming service Apple Music. She said she finds it “shocking, disappointing, and completely unlike this historically progressive and generous company” to not pay writers on the first three months of service.
Taylor also said three months is “a long time to go unpaid.” She also insisted that she wrote the letter in order to speak up for other writers who are gravely affected by the said policy.
Taylor then ended her post with a remark saying that Apple should compensate writers because consumers pay for their iPhones.
“But I say to Apple with all due respect, it’s not too late to change this policy and change the minds of those in the music industry who will be deeply and gravely affected by this. We don’t ask you for free iPhones. Please don’t ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation.”
Apple changes their policy
According to Fox News, on June 22, 2015, Apple changed its policy and said that they will pay royalties for streaming services during the three-month free trial period. Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president, said they needed to make a change.
When I woke up this morning and I saw Taylor’s note that she had written, it really solidified that we needed to make a change
A photographer reveals Taylor’s ‘hypocrisy’
Jason Sheldon, a professional music photographer, wrote “An Open Response to Taylor Swift’s Rant Against Apple” in Junction10. In the said letter, Jason replied in detail about Taylor’s rants. He first agreed with Taylor that companies should not exploit artists. He then pointed out Taylor’s statement that her rants are clearly not about other artists but were all for her own interest.
In the paragraph where Taylor said that her sentiments “were not of a spoiled, petulant child, and that her sentiments were of every artist, writer or producer”, Jason said his sentiments were also of other professional photographers who are afraid to speak up. He also pointed out that not every photographer has the security Taylor Swift has to be able to speak up about her rants.
For every artist that is in a secure enough financial and influential position to stand up against the likes of Apple without having to worry that Apple will publicly block your ability to earn a living from their iTunes market place, there are hundreds of professional concert photographers who don’t enjoy that security.
Jason also posted a contract of a photo policy that reveals a “complete right grab” which allows her management to use any photos taken during her concert. He said to Taylor that she was not any different from Apple and that she should also change the unfair policy.
“With all due respect to you, too, Taylor, you can do the right thing and change your photo policy. Photographers don’t ask for your music for free. Please don’t ask us to provide you with your marketing material for free. Time to stop being ‘Mean.’”
Another photographer leaks the contract that Taylor Swift can destroy equipment of resistant photographers
Joel Goodman, also a professional photographer, leaked a contract which reveals that Taylor Swift can destroy the equipment of resistent photographers.

On June 23, 2015, Taylor’s spokesperson from the UK released a statement that the agreement had been misrepresented. It was also stated the claim that the copyright of the photographs does not transfer the copyright away from any photographer.
Taylor ‘steals’ from a photgrapher

I got out my paints for the first time in a while today and made you something I really really really really hope you like it. I’m not a good painter but I think you’re so beautiful and positive, even though you’re dealing with the stress life brings, so I wanted to make you something.”
