On the heels ofTaylor Swift's breakup with Tom Hiddleston,another one of her exes—Calvin Harris—is speaking outagainabout hisrelationship with the "Blank Space" singer.If you remember,the Scottish DJ went on a pretty fieryTwitter rantagainst Swift in July after news broke she had a hand in his hit song "This Is What You Came For" (a fact that wassupposedto stay hush-hush).Harris addressed everything in that rant,from Swift's then-blossoming relationship with Hiddleston (howironic) to alluding that "Bad Blood" is about Katy Perry.He also included the upside-down smiley emoji,so you know he meant business.
But Harris' words about Swiftthistime around are slightly less toxic.(That doesn't make them any less telling,though.) In a new interview withBritish *GQ*,Harris (the magazine's new Solo Artist of the Year) opened up about how the media firestorm surrounding his breakup with Swift was too hot for him to handle.
"It's very difficult when something I consider so personal plays out very publicly," Harris told the glossy."The aftermath of the relationship was way more heavily publicized in the relationship itself.When we were together,we were very careful for it not to be a media circus.She respected my feelings in that sense.I'm not good at being a celebrity."
It was the breakup,which Harris described to BritishGQas "all hell" breaking loose,that led to his barrage of questionable tweets earlier this summer.So,how does he feel about those messages two months later?
"Now I see that Twitter thing as a result of me succumbing to pressure," he said."It took me a minute to realize that none of that matters.I'm a positive guy."
Here's hoping this ongoing Harris saga also leads to a Swiftpop smash in 2017.We need to dance after all of this drama.
