Above: Taylor Swift – New Romantics And The 1989 World Tour.

Taylor Swift made music news when she released the “New Romantics” music video. The music lyrics go “The best people in life are free,” but her music video was only available for a fee on Apple Music. Some Swifties felt it was unnecessary to pay for a music video, especially after they pay to support Taylor Swift in other ways such as when they purchase Taylor Swift music albums and Taylor Swift concert tickets.

Some Taylor Swift fans theorized the music video would eventually be released for free like the rest of her 1989 music videos, and they were right! The music video is like a beautiful love letter to everyone who supported Taylor Swift during her incredible and inspiring 1989 music tour.
