Is Taylor Swift Launching Her Own Streaming Service?

Taylor Swift is certainly in an entrepreneurial state of mind these days. She recently launched her own DirecTV channel — where fans of the singer songwriter can watch unique Tay Tay videos. Now, it looks as if she is turning her eyes on the streaming world.
It has been reported that T-Swizzle has filed papers to form a website "featuring non-downloadable multi-media content in the nature of audio recordings," which sounds an awful lot like a streaming service. She is also planning on calling the service "Swifties."
When Apple Music originally launched, one of its biggest selling point was that it would be the only service where customers could stream Swift's tunes, but with this new proposal filed, we are unsure where Taylor's music will be available online in the future.
She is also looking to launch a line of music products, including guitars, guitar picks, guitar straps, and drumsticks. Her plans also include organizing retreats, educational camps, and self-guided online courses. At the moment it seems as if everything enterprising is within in Taylor's reach.
Despite Swift's recent beef with Kanye, it seems like the singer songwriter is more interested in emulating his boss/mentor Jay Z. And if Taylor is an empire state of mind, we certainly wouldn't recommend getting in the way.
