In this weeks A-List Insider:

Taylor Swift takes on Apple, Kim Kardashian reveals the sex of her second child and Zayn Malik teams up with Krept and Konan.

Taylor Swift takes a bite out of Apple

When Taylor Swift is not busy making hits, she is changing the music game one Tumblr post at a time. The pop star recently called out Apple over its refusal to pay artists during free trials of its new Music streaming service and, guess what, they listened.

After the 25-year-old singer threatened to hold back her latest hit album, 1989, from the service in an open letter that went viral, the tech giant had a change of heart.

Apple Music has since reversed its payment policy and now plans to pay artists and labels during its three-month trial period.

Following her landmark victory, Swift took Twitter to thank both Apple and her supporters, telling her 59 million Twitter followers: I am elated and relieved. Thank you for your words of support today. They listened to us.

Proud boyfriend Calvin Harris responded to the news by tweeting: I just played a gig inside an owl and my girl just changed the entire music industry. What a day.

Now that, my friends, is power. Taylor 1, Apple 0.

Kim Kardashian expecting a boy

And over in the world of reality TV, Kim Kardashian has confirmed the sex of her second child. After weeks of speculation, the 34-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star confirmed rumours that she is indeed expecting a boy this time around.

She took to Twitter on Fathers Day to post a photo of her husband Kanye West reading to their daughter North West with the caption: Precious moments like this when we were traveling on tour with you are what I live for. Youre such a good daddy to North and you will be the best daddy to our new son too!

The real question is will West be changing any nappies?

Krept and Konan team up with Zayn Malik

And finally, UK rap duo Krept and Konan have revealed they have been busy in the studio with former One Direction star Zayn Malik.

During a recent interview with A-List, the stars said they teamed up with 22-year-old in 2014 before he quit One Direction in March and they even made a video to accompany the track.

We were just messing around one day and made the cover. I have a feeling the video will just get leaked somehow. Krept said.

The news comes just weeks Maliks cover of US hip-hop act Rae Sremmurds 2014 single No Type emerged online.
