Because for Taylor, it wasn't about the money — it was about the principle.

"Grabbing a woman's rear end is an assault, and it's always wrong. Any woman — rich, poor, famous, or not — is entitled to have that not happen," her attorney said.

"Grabbing a woman's rear end is an assault, and it's always wrong. Any woman — rich, poor, famous, or not — is entitled to have that not happen," her attorney said.

TBH, we should have seen it coming since she hinted at it in the lyric video released last Friday.

It's a big, red one dollar bill!!!

Back in 2014, Taylor faced intense criticism after she pulled her music from Spotify, requiring listeners to purchase her music outright.

"Music is art, and art is important and rare. Important, rare things are valuable. Valuable things should be paid for," she wrote in The Wall Street Journal.

That decision, then, lead people to characterize her as money-hungry.

But Taylor's back, and she's reclaiming her ~reputation~. It looks like it's not ALL about the money after all.
