Taylor Swift Confirms She Secretly Wrote Song, Calvin Harris Angrily RespondsPublished on July 13, 2016.
Things are getting nasty between Taylor Swift and her ex, Calvin Harris.
Earlier today we reported that Taylor had secretly penned Calvin’s “This Is What You Came For,” and that their collaboration caused relationship problems. The couple recorded a professional demo with Taylor on vocals and Calvin doing the beats. Despite their excitement, they agreed that the success of the song would be overshadowed by their relationship. Taylor secured the publishing rights under the pseudonym Nils Sjoberg, and Calvin produced a new version with Rihanna.
Today a representative for Taylor confirmed that she wrote the song, stating: “Taylor Swift wrote This Is What You Came For under the pseudonym Nils Sjoberg.”
Calvin took to Twitter to respond to the statement in order to give his version of events. But what started out as a confirmation regarding the collaboration quickly turned negative.
In response to the news of Taylor’s involvement on the song, Calvin tweeted, “And she sings on a little bit of it too. Amazing lyric writer and she smashed it as usual.”
“I wrote the music, produced the song, arranged it and cut the vocals though. And initially she wanted it kept secret, hence the pseudonym,” he continued.
Calvin should have left the conversation there, but like many things on social media, he went too far. “Hurtful to me at this point that her and her team would go so far out of their way to try and make ME look bad at this stage though,” he wrote.
In an attempt to slam Taylor’s new relationship with actor Tom Hiddleston, Calvin added, “I figure if you’re happy in your new relationship you should focus on that instead of trying to tear your ex bf down for something to do.”
Referencing Taylor’s public feud with Katy Perry, Calvin tweeted, “I know you’re off tour and you need someone new to try and bury like Katy ETC but I’m not that guy, sorry. I won’t allow it.”
“Please focus on the positive aspects of YOUR life because you’ve earned a great one.” As if trying to make his comments sound less harsh, he signed off by writing, “God bless everyone have a beautiful day.”
We can’t wait to see how Taylor responds to Calvin’s angry tweets!
