Everyone remembers that time Calvin Harris dragged his ex Taylor Swift on Twitter for rightfully taking credit for her own work. Okay, if you don't remember, we'll sum it up for you as quickly as dramatic Hollywood feuds can be summed up.
In May 2016, Taylor and Calvin called it quits after one year of dating. At the time, both tweeted that the split was amicable and that there was still respect between them.
Then, depending on whose camp you ask, Taylor's representatives either "responded to prying media questions" or "intentionally leaked" that she had written the lyrics to Calvin's song This Is What You Came For. Calvin did not appreciate Taylor's team revealing this information, as she had originally done the work under a pseudonym and he attacked her online for undermining him.
It's worth mentioning Taylor herself did not speak out about it, nor did her camp imply she had created the music. It's probably even more important to note that at this moment in time Taylor had "shocked" the world by moving on quickly with actor Tom Hiddleston. Just saying, this seemed to be a big part of the Twitter rant.
"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" was one of Calvin's standout quotes.
One year on, Calvin has made a surprising statement and spoken out about his "wrong" move.
"It was completely the wrong instinct," he says in a new interview with GQ. "I was protecting what I see as my one talent in the world being belittled. It felt like things were piling on top of me and that was when I snapped.
"It's very difficult when something I consider so personal plays out very publicly. The aftermath of the relationship was way more heavily publicised than the relationship itself," he continued. "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. But when it ended, all hell broke loose.
"Now I see that Twitter thing as a result of me succumbing to pressure. It took me a minute to realise that none of that matters. I'm a positive guy. For both of us it was the wrong situation. It clearly wasn't right, so it ended, but all of the stuff that happened afterwards..." and, as the reporter writes "the sentence drifts off into oblivion."
Snaps to Calvin for owning up to his mistake.
