While ditching out the allegations of a possible partnership with Swift, Mr. Garlinghouse Said,

Strictly rumors. There are lots of rumors and I’m hesitant to comment on any rumor, because if you comment on the false rumors then you have to comment on the true rumors. And so you just avoid all of them.
