The renowned magazine said of its decision to make Taylor Swift top of the pops: “Swift isn’t merely the world’s favourite pop star, putting up sales numbers that are nearly unfathomable in the post-Napster age—she is also using her platform to make giant companies conform to her will.”
“After pulling her catalogue off Spotify last year, Swift wrote an open letter to Apple asking it to pay artists during the free-trial period of its new music service. She posted the note on Tumblr on a Sunday and the company complied within hours,” they continued.
Taylor beats star athlete Lebron James who finishes in sixth, Hilary Clinton who’s at number nine, Kimye who are twelfth and even Beyonce and Jay-Z who came in at number twenty-one.
Well done Taylor, we’re prouder than ever.
