Taylor Swift Defended The Value Of Albums At The American Music Awards
"Music should be consumed as albums."
Taylor Swift — the only artist to ever sell over 1 million copies of an album in a single week on three separate occasions — made a statement in defense of albums-as-art while accepting the Dick Clark Award For Excellence at the American Music Awards.
Music is art, and art is important and rare. Important, rare things are valuable. Valuable things should be paid for.
