Original post, 6/24: When Taylor Swift isn't rocking sold-out concerts, fine-tuning her army of Hollywood friends (opens in new tab)paying off her fans' student loans (opens in new tab), and revamping the term "cat lady" one adorable Instagram post at a time (opens in new tab), she's taking on big companies and changing the music industry (opens in new tab) for the betterment of her fellow artists.

But is it all too good to be true?

Some skeptics are claiming that Taylor Swift v Apple (opens in new tab) went *so* well, it had to be a PR stunt. Their reasoning? 1) Taylor Swift comes out as a hero 2) Apple looks like they're playing ball and are totally on board with artists' welfare.

To which we say: 1) When did everyone become an expert in PR tactics? 2) Even if true—um, artists get paid and no one got hurt, so...what's the big deal?
