Taylor Swift swiftly showed she can control pretty much everything.
Over the weekend, she wrote an open letter to Apple, criticizing them for refusing to pay artists to stream their music during the app’s free three-month trial period.
But the very next day it seems Swifty emerged victorious, when Apple announced it would, in fact, compensate musicians during that time.
And then, finally, on Thursday, T-Swizzle announced she will be streaming 1989 with the tech titan after all!
But, Twitter users are saying all the drama was resolved too quickly and too perfectly, prompting many to believe that the whole thing was just for some positive PR!
Ch-ch-check out what people are saying (below)!
Conspiracy Theory: Apple Music & Taylor Swift orchestrated this whole “open letter” drama as a publicity stunt.

I wonder how much Apple paid Taylor Swift for this ‘admirable’ but deeply cynical publicity stunt for both parties? 6 or 7 figures? VOTE NOW

The Taylor Swift stuff could actually be great for Apple. Lots of free publicity for a service that wasn’t making waves yet.

Congratulations to Apple & Taylor Swift on their mutually beneficial publicity stunt. The media have fallen Hook, Line & Sinker

The Taylor Swift/Apple thing totally feels like a publicity stunt. So mushy too.

But, just how is the pop diva reacting to this conspiracy theory? When she announced she’d be adding her album to Apple Music, she also explained:
In case you’re wondering if this is some exclusive deal like you’ve seen Apple do with other artists, it’s not.

However, some members of the Twitterverse don’t even think THAT statement is all it appears to be, either!
What do U guys think? Is Swifty being shifty? Or was her letter legit? SOUND OFF in the comments!
