Taylor Swift fans and those going through a recent breakup will have to shell out some cash to listen to her tunes/partake in TSwift therapy. The cat-loving pop princess has decided to remove all of her albums from Spotify. Yep, you can't even listen to "Teardrops On My Guitar." The Verge is predicting that this is most likely an attempt to drive sales to her newest album 1989, which is already set to break some records. Spotify has responded with a playlist called While Taylor's Away, a hashtag, and a blogpost that manages to morph lyrics from multiple T. Swift songs into one semi-coherent sentence.
