- Taylor Swift co-wrote Harris' latest track This Is What You Came For
- Initially she wanted it kept secret, hence the pseudonym, he tweeted
- You need someone new to bury like Katy but I'm not that guy, he said
Calvin on Wednesday denounced his ex-girlfriend as a bully after it was revealed that she co-wrote his recent hit This Is What You Came For, which features Rihanna on vocals.
Alluding to Taylor's blossoming romance with English actor Tom Hiddleston, Calvin Harris tweeted:
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— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) July 13, 2016
I wrote the music, produced the song, arranged it and cut the vocals though. And initially she wanted it kept secret, hence the pseudonym— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) July 13, 2016
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— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) July 13, 2016
He also hit a potential sore spot by referring to Taylor's famed 'bad blood' with fellow US pop superstar Katy Perry.
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— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) July 13, 2016
Please focus on the positive aspects of YOUR life because you've earned a great one— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) July 13, 2016
This Is What You Came For, featuring Calvin's signature house music sound with a tropical touch, was credited as written by him with Nils Sjoberg.
Several celebrity news outlets quoted Taylor's representatives as saying she actually co-wrote the song but did not want to be identified so their relationship would not overshadow the song.
The song may have triggered the break-up, gossip site TMZ said, as Taylor became angry when Calvin told an interviewer he had never discussed collaborating with his then-girlfriend.
They announced their break-up several days later. Calvin appeared polite at the time, saying "a huge amount of love and respect" remained between them.
Taylor has been spotted around the world with Tom in the past month. The theater actor went on to appear in Marvel Comics films such as Thor and The Avengers as well as Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris.
As for the real Nils Sjoberg, a man by the name who works at a hotel in Gothenburg, Sweden said that he had no problem with being credited on the song.
