After taking on the corporate titan that is Apple, forcing them to have a change of mind, Taylor Swift is seemingly unstoppable. The pop star wrote a stern but not-too-stern open letter which she posted to her Tumblr blog, where she called Apple out for not paying musicians royalties for the free trial period of the Apple Music streaming service.

“These are not the complaints of a spoiled, petulant child.” she wrote. “These are the echoed sentiments of every artist, writer and producer in my social circles who are afraid to speak up publicly because we admire and respect Apple so much. We simply do not respect this particular call.”

She iterated that it wasn’t all about her and other bigs stars either, but that she was looking out for the smaller artists who would be hit hard by not being paid for three months.

Everyone agreed she had a point, most importantly Apple’s senior vice president Eddy Cue agreed, tweeting his response before the internet outrage machine gave Apple too much negative PR.

Artists and musicians were quick to praise Swift’s actions, so well done Taylor. But now that she’s claimed victory against such a powerful force, the internet wants her to sort out all its, and the world’s, problems too.

Here are some of the people in need of Swift’s swift help.
