Taylor Swift's concert video is exclusive to Apple Music, streams for free starting December 20th
If you're a Taylor Swift fan, circle December 20th on your calendar. Next Sunday, the pop star's "1989 World Tour Live" video will be released as an exclusive by Apple Music. It was back during this past summer when Swift said that she would not let the yet-to-launch Apple Music stream any tunes from her chart-topping "1989" album. Swift was upset that Apple had decided not to pay artists, labels and producers for songs streamed during Apple Music subscribers' three-month free trials.

But Apple eventually caved, which resulted in Swift agreeing to give the tech titan the rights to stream her tunes on Apple Music. Now, Swift and Apple brass are the best of buddies. Talking about Apple's decision to pay royalties on songs played during three-month trials, the singer said that Apple "had shown such humility in what they did. So that’s how we get to (here)." In fact, an interview with the 26-year singer (today is her birthday) will be heard over Apple Music's Beats 1 "radio station" starting at 12 noon EST on Monday.

The concert footage was recorded on November 28th in Sydney, Australia, at the ANZ Stadium. Several big name guests will appear in the footage, including Mick Jagger and Justin Timberlake. Every song from "1989" will be played during the video. 76,000 fans packed the venue on the day that the concert was filmed. The video will be streamed to Apple Music subscribers for free, and will not be offered for sale.

It's like a huge cringe-filled publicity stunt and Swift is one of the biggest money-grabbing artists ever. "You just earned millions from this concert..." "Yes, but I want MOOAARRRR"

You can try as much as you want into wasting millions on crap like this Apple. Maybe and I say maybe you could invest some money into a small fraction of your tens of thousands of engineers, programmers, designers etc that you have to make the s**tty confusing mess that apple music is into something better.

No need... She's not an artist that loves singing for the sake of singing. Country is what she started with, seems like it didn't make much money so she changed her genre. You want to see real singers? Go to YouTube Mohogany sessions. There are even more of those channels.

As far I as I know, the girl has never been country. She's always been pop with her repetitive, mindless tunes. And don't get me started with her singing ability.

Her first album had a pinch of country...modern country maybe? It's not very poppy either.

she cares more about writing then about singing and thats why she started country.....as i know, she love making tunes then singing them.....and we can all agree her voice is the worst in business but she gets away with it by other features in songs
