Now we understand why Taylor Swift doesn’t need Spotify: She may be looking to get in the business herself.

The “Red” singer very publicly yanked her music from that streaming service in 2014, presumably as “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” played in the background.

News Swift, whose last four albums have reached #1, has filed trademark applications for a platform called “Swifties.” This would enable Swift to start her own streaming service. Swift has been outspoken in support of artists getting paid for their music online, signing a petition for digital copyright reform along with other musicians including Carole King and Paul McCartney.
