Like she's a goddamn fairy godmother.

So, Taylor Swift recently wrote about why her latest album, "1989", wouldn't be streaming on Apple's new music service - Apple Music.

In a post on her blog, Taylor explained she was taking a stand not just for herself, but also for indie artists.

"These are not the complaints of a spoiled, petulant child. These are the echoed sentiments of every artist, writer and producer in my social circles who are afraid to speak up publicly because we admire and respect Apple so much. We simply do not respect this particular call."

Today, Apple announced they would be paying artists for streaming, even during the customer's free trial period - which had been a concern for many musicians.
