Video: Spotify board member Sean Parker talks Taylor Swift and Apple clash with Poppy Harlow

In an interview with CNN’s Poppy Harlow, Napster co-founder and Spotify board member Sean Parker talks about the recent Taylor Swift and Apple ‘clash.’

“Taylor is a bit of an anomaly in the music industry in the sense that she is still able to sell a lot of downloads. She’s still able to sell – in some parts of the country – CDs. She has a huge fan base, and she sort of defies gravity in the sense that very few artists have that kind of built-in fan base and will continue to buy their albums.”

When Harlow asked about Swift being on Spotify, Parker states:

“The interesting thing in looking at the numbers, there was no evidence in looking at the data, of a change in consumption or usage, when Taylor left the platform.  So even if you take out one, major, contemporary artist, it really doesn’t affect the overall usage.”

Harlow and Parker also discuss the future of music and subscription services.

“This is an industry that is going through an incredibly agonizing and long transition. It’s pretty clear at this point, that the subscription model has won and we see that now with Apple music.”

Rachel Nichols Talks to Jordan Spieth About US Open and Masters Wins

In an interview with CNN Sports Anchor Rachel Nichols, Jordan Spieth talks about what it was like to bring home the U.S. Open trophy to his Master’s Green Jacket.

“That was a really cool moment for me. You know, so much hard work for our team that went into both of those and to kind of have them both in my possession at once really put it all in perspective for me. And I had some goosebumps. It was awesome,” Spieth said. 

Spieth, the youngest person to win the U.S. Open since Bobby Jones in 1923, talks with Nichols in more detail about Sunday’s win and also looks ahead to St. Andrews and the possibility of making history by winning the Grand Slam.

“I think it’s more of a conversation if I can get three of them first. Winning two majors in your life is hard enough let alone winning the next two after winning two. I mean it’s just something that’s crazy to think about even though the questions are asked. But for me, it’s how can I focus on the Open championship.”
