A week after Taylor Swift removes her entire catalog from online streaming service Spotify, the head of her label Big Machine, Scott Borchetta explains the move, Blabbermouth reported.

In an interview with Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx, Borchetta said the reason they pulled out the country-turned-pop star's music from Spotify is they "never wanted to embarrass a fan."

"If this fan went and purchased the record, CD, iTunes, wherever, and then their friends go 'why did you pay for it? It's free on Spotify,' we're being completely disrespectful to that superfan," he explained.

He added, "The problem we have with Spotify is they don't allow you to do anything with your music. They take it and they say...'give us everything that you have and we're going to do what we want with it.' And that doesn't work for us."

While they don't plan on putting Swift's music back on the service any time soon, Borchetta did mention that Spotify is "a good service," only "they're just gonna have to change their ways on how they do business."

Swift departed from the online streaming service a week after she dropped her latest album "1989." She explained her lack of faith in Spotify and the decision to pull out from the service in an interview with Yahoo Music on November 6.

"Spotify all feels to me a bit like a grand experiment. And I'm not willing to contribute my life's work to an experiment that I don't feel fairly compensates the writers, producers, and creators of this music. And I just don't agree with perpetuating the perception that music has no value and should be free," she said.

On November 3, the day Swift removed her catalog from the service, Spotify issued a statement on their official blog.

"We love Taylor Swift...We hope she'll change her mind and join us in building a new music economy that works for everyone," the statement read. "We believe fans should be able to listen to music wherever and whenever they want, and that artists have an absolute right to be paid for their work and protected from piracy."
