About

Taylor Swift is an American singer-songwriter who is known for her best-selling country pop songs and a massive fan following among the tween and teen demographics. On the web, the pop star has been often discussed on celebrity gossip and entertainment news sites, mainly due to her high-profile relationships, while being targeted by trolls and anti-fans seeking to taint her innocent public image.

Online History

In early 2002, Swift's family launched her official home page on TaylorSwift.com[1], hosting MP3 files of Swift singing cover songs and information about upcoming performances. By age 12, Swift began writing her own songs and within two years, Swift and her family had moved from their home in Pennsylvania to Nashville, Tennessee so she could pursue a music career. She released her self-titled debut album[2] in 2006 when she was 16, which has since been certified Gold in the UK, Platinum in Australia and Canada and 5x Platinum in the United States. Of the album’s 11 songs, Swift wrote three of them herself, including the third single “Our Song” (shown below), whose music video has been viewed nearly 70.7 million times on YouTube.



In November 2007, a Facebook fan page[5] was created for Swift, gaining more than 49.5 million likes as of October 2013. TaylorFan.org[7], the first major fan site for her music, was launched in April 2008. Swift's official VEVO YouTube channel[6] was launched on May 11th, 2009, attracting more than 6.2 million subscribers and 1.7 billion views, averaging nearly 1.1 million views per day as of October 2013. In February 2010, one of the first single topic Tumblr blogs[9] dedicated to sharing photos of the singer daily was created, followed by the launch of a fan-made subreddit[8] that March.

Open Letter to Apple

On June 21st, 2015, Swift posted an open letter to Apple on Tumblr[26] about why she would be withholding her album 1989 from their upcoming music streaming service Apple Music. In the letter, Swift criticizes the company for refusing to pay artists for music streamed during the planned free trial period (shown below).


taylorswift Follow To Apple, Love Taylor I write this to explain why l'll be holding back my album, 1989, from the new streaming service, Apple Music. I feel this deserves an explanation because Apple has been and will continue to be one of my best partners in selling music and creating ways for me to connect with my fans. I respect the company and the truly ingenious minds that have created a legacy based on innovation and pushing the right boundaries I'm sure you are aware that Apple Music will be offering a free 3 month trial to anyone who signs up for the service. I'm not sure you know that Apple Music will not be paying writers, producers, or artists for those three months. I find it to be shocking, disappointing, and completely unlike this historically progressive and generous company This is not about me. Thankfully I am on my fifth album and can support myself my band, crew, and entire management team by playing live shows. This is about the new artist or band that has just released their first single and will not be paid for its success. This is about the young songwriter who just got his or her first cut and thought that the royalties from that would get them out of debt. This is about the producer who works tirelessly to innovate and create, just like the innovators and creators at Apple are pioneering in their field...but will not get paid for a quarter of a year's worth of plays on his or her songs These are not the complaints of a spoiled, petulant child. These are the echoed sentiments of every artist, writer and producer in my social circles who are afraid to speak up publicly because we admire and respect Apple so much. We simply do not respect this particular call I realize that Apple is working towards a goal of paid streaming. I think that is beautiful progress. We know how astronomically successful Apple has been and we know that this incredible company has the money to pay artists, writers and producers for the 3 month trial period... even if it is free for the fans trying it out. Three months is a long time to go unpaid, and it is unfair to ask anyone to work for nothing. I say this with love, reverence, and admiration for everything else Apple has done. I hope that soon I can join them in the progression towards a streaming model that seems fair to those who create this music. I think this could be the platfom that gets it right. But I say to Apple with all due respect, it's not too late to change this policy and change the minds of those in the music industry who will be deeply and gravely affected by this. We don't ask you for free iPhones. Please don't ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation. Taylor 75,305 notes

That morning, the Tumblr post reached the front page of the /r/Music[32] subreddit. Several hours later, Apple senior vice president of Internet Software and Services Eddy Cue posted a tweet[27] announcing the company had reversed its decision and would pay artists for all music streamed during the free trial (shown below, left). Additionally, Cue tweeted[28] an acknowledgement to Swift's and indie artist's concerns (shown below, right).

Also on June 21st, the photography blog Junction10 Photography[33] published an "open response" to Swift, accusing the pop star of hypocrisy for making photographers sign away the rights to their work. In the coming days, many news outlets published articles about open letter, including The Daily What,[34] BBC,[35] The New York Times,[36] CNN,[37] Forbes,[38] The Guardian,[39] Time[40] and Wired.[41]

Feud With Nicki Minaj

After MTV announced the nominations for their annual Video Music Awards in July 2015, which included Swifts video for "Bad Blood" for Music Video of the Year, rapper Nicki Minaj posted a series of tweets criticizing the award ceremony for nominating videos featuring "women with very slim bodies." The tweets resulting in a short Twitter feud between Minaj and Swift, in which Swift later apologized for misinterpreting Minaj's intention.

Groping Trial

In June 2013, Disc Jockey David Mueller allegedly physically assaulted Taylor Swift by reaching under her skirt and grabbing her buttocks during a meet-and-greet photo op. Mueller first sued the singer in 2015 on the basis of slander and for getting him fired from his job at KYGO. Swift quickly counter-sued, stating that Mueller had physically assaulted her while they were posing for a photo and also denied her involvement in his firing.

The incident first received public attention when Taylor Swift was dismissed from Jury duty August 2016, after she said she was unable to be an impartial jury member in an aggravated rape, kidnapping and domestic abuse trial due to her own experience with sexual harassment.

The Mueller v. Swift trial began on August 7th, 2017, with testimonies from both Swift and Mueller. Mueller denied groping her and sued for 3 million in damages while Swift counter sued for sexual assault and a symbolic $1 in damages in the civil suit.

The meet and greet photo of Taylor Swift, David Mueller, and his then girlfriend from 2013 leaked on October 2016 and is a key evidential piece in the trial. In the photo, Mueller’s hand appears to be under her skirt where he allegedly groped her.

On August 10th, 2017, Swift testified and said “he was in the process of grabbing my ass, yes.” when asked about the photo in her testimony. Swift continued describing the incident in her testimony saying "He latched onto my bare ass cheek, and I lurched away uncomfortably.” "The first few milliseconds I thought it was a mistake, but his hand would not let go of my ass cheek." "It was a definite grab. A very long grab.” said the pop star. Swift’s bodyguard and photographer were key witnesses in the trial, saying they saw Mueller touch her inappropriately.



Verdict

On August 14th, 2017, Swift won her $1 countersuit against David Mueller in the Denver, Colorado federal court. Swift issued the following statement after winning, “I want to thank Judge William J. Martinez and the jury for their careful consideration, my attorneys Doug Baldridge, Danielle Foley, Jay schaudies and Katie Wright for fighting for me and anyone who feels silenced by a sexual assault, and especially anyone who offered their support throughout this four-year ordeal and two-year long trial process.” Swift continued, “I acknowledge the privilege that I benefit from in life, in society and in my ability to shoulder the enormous cost of defending myself in a trial like this. My hope is to help those whose voices should also be heard. Therefore, I will be making donations in the near future to multiple organizations that help sexual assault victims defend themselves."

Swift received overwhelming support on social media with fans praising her for speaking up against sexual assault. Swift hopes the trial “serves as an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts” On twitter, celebrities including Kesha, Nelly Furtado, and James Corden shared supportive messages to the pop star.

Political Endorsements

On October 7th, 2018, Swift posted to Instagram announcing that she would be voting for Democrats Phil Bresden for Senator and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives. She stated that while she has been "reluctant" to voice her political opinions in the past, "several events in (her) life and in the world in the past two years" caused her to feel "very differently about that now." She also stated:

I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country. I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent.

The post gained over 1.5 million likes in less than 24 hours.[56] The post was covered by multiple media outlets, including Huffington Post,[57] NBC News,[58] and Washington Post.[59] Many compared the statement to Kanye West's recent political support of Donald Trump.
