The numbers don’t lie, Taylor Swift’s paycheck from Spotify is a lot less than the $ 6 million it’s promising.

Spotify, the world’s biggest subscription music streaming service, paid Swift less than $ 500,000 in the last 12 months for listening by its U.S. users, Scott Borchetta, CEO of Swift’s record label Big Machine, told Time magazine. Counting all listening worldwide, that number jumps to $ 2 million, Jonathan Prince, a Spotify spokesman, told Mashable.

That’s still a far cry from the $ 6 million a year that Spotify is on track to pay Swift and other big recording artists, CEO Daniel Ek said in a blog post on Tuesday. Read more…

The Italian newspaper La Repubblica reported one of the great recent discoveries in the art world last week. It claimed that 90-year-old Mina Gregori, one of the doyennes of Italian art history, had found the famously lost masterpiece of the Magdalene in Ecstasy in a European private collection outside Italy. If it is the real thing, its insurance value would be in excess of 20 million pounds ($ 32.3 million).

The painting is by the radically innovative early Baroque painter Caravaggio. It has previously only been known through several copies, at least one of which had been erroneously claimed as the original. It used to be thought that the picture was painted in 1606 just after Caravaggio had fled from Rome after killing a man in a brawl (or duel). But now the evidence suggests that he...

Mark Zuckerberg wants to do his part to help fight Ebola.

The Facebook cofounder and CEO announced Tuesday that he and his wife Priscilla are donating $ 25 million to the Centers for Disease Control Foundation to put an end to the Ebola outbreak.
