    It's Apple

    Swift weighed in on Apple's decision not to pay artists during Apple Music's free three-month trial period: "I find it to be shocking, disappointing, and completely unlike this historically progressive and generous company." On Sunday night, Apple reversed course and said it will, in fact, be paying for the rights to stream music throughout the trial period.

    It's Greece

    Eurozone leaders are trying to reach a last-minute deal at an emergency summit today. If Greece fails to make the payment, it risks defaulting and possibly leaving the eurozone, the European Union’s monetary union of 19 countries using the euro. BuzzFeed News' Shyamantha Asokan takes a look at why Greece’s economy is such a mess and what both sides in the talks are demanding.

    It's "Inside Out"

    Its setting inside the mind of a 11-year-old girl is arguably the studio’s most conceptually daring to date — not to mention the fact that it is only Pixar’s second film ever with a female protagonist. It's an original film — in other words, it isn't a sequel, prequel, reboot, or adaptation of some other source material.
