So Why Does Spotify Pay Its Artists So Poorly If The Average Employee Salary Is $168,747?!

Filed under: Music MinuteBusiness Blitz

This is NOT music to our ears…

Remember how Taylor Swift, Adele, and a bunch of other artists removed their music from Spotify because the streaming service was paying its artists too poorly?

Well, as it turns out, while the musicians are suffering financially, Spotify's employees are living quite nicely thanks to an insanely high average salary — $168,747 a year, to be exact!

The Stockholm-based company released its annual report this week, which indicated that since business began booming back in 2010, employee paychecks have increased 152 percent while Spotify itself has reportedly lost a staggering $188.7 million!!!

So this raises the question: if the people running the show are getting paid so handsomely, why are the people actually making the music making no money??

We guess Taylor was right all along…

Do U think Spotify should allocate more of its money to the artists??

Justin Bieber Proves He's A Swiftie By Singing Along To Taylor Swift's Teardrops On My Guitar! Watch!

no title

Selena Gomez must have quite conflicting feelings about this…

While Justin Bieber didn't have the best time at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, it looks like he had a much more enjoyable Monday all thanks to Taylor Swift.

After winning Top Male Artist and Top Social Media Artist at the Las Vegas-based event, the 22-year-old decided to relax in his car listening to some T.Swift music late Monday night.

However, The Biebs wasn't about to be a casual fan and listen to something obvious like Blank Space or New Romantics… he threw it way back to 2007 with Tay Tay's Teardrops on My Guitar!

Justin shared a rather adorable video to Instagram of himself singing along to the country song, and while he may only know the chorus, we're sure Taylor was flattered.

Now when will Taylor cover Baby??

Julia Roberts and Ellen DeGeneres have more in common than you might think!

Not only are they both A-list celebrities, but they're both officially in Taylor Swift's squad!!

Father John Misty Took LSD At A Taylor Swift Concert — And Things Got 'Disturbing' & 'Dangerous'!

Filed under: DrugsMusic MinuteTaylor Swift

no title

Good luck shaking off this drug trip!

Taylor Swift's squeaky clean image means we don't usually get to write too many headlines featuring her name and "LSD," but we'll gladly take the opportunity to share this fascinating story.

Music aficionados are probably familiar with Father John Misty's indie rock quirks, but he really outdid himself with his latest outing.

Video: T.Swift's New Romantics Video Is Totally For The Fans

That's because the 34-year-old musician took acid at a 1989 concert in Australia back in December and is only just now sharing the story in Rolling Stone magazine.

And while Shake It Off and New Romantics may be super fun on the radio, FJM had a slightly more "dangerous" and "disturbing" experience, saying:

Taylor Swift Drops Her New Romantics Music Video — Watch!

Filed under: Music MinuteTaylor Swift

Don't get us wrong: we're huge Swifties… but this seems rather lazy.

Taylor Swift announced at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday that she would be taking a short break from music, and it looks like she's making good on that promise.

That's because the 26-year-old dropped the music video for her latest single New Romantics on Wednesday, but we're not sure you could even call it that.

Video: Taylor Full On Faceplants On The Treadmill For Apple Music

Instead of teaming up with award-winning director Joseph Kahn like she had with all the other songs off 1989, Tay Tay instead just did a voiceover on top of footage she pulled from her concert in Vancouver.

While we're not the most impressed, we bet her diehard fans are still gonna love it!
