Calvin Harris Opens Up About His Breakup with Taylor Swift
It's been three months since Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift's breakup happened. Since then, Calvin has gone back to being the low-key music producer that he is while his ex-lady love faced a ton of controversies—a fight with KimYe, the revelation that she co-wrote Calvin's "This Is What You Came For," and the breakup with Tom Hiddleston.
But for the first time after "succumbing to pressure" via a series of tweets about Tay, Calvin spoke about his highly-publicized breakup with the music sensation. In the October issue of British GQ (via MTV.com), he said that they tried to keep their relationship out of the public eye as much as they can.
"It's very difficult when something I consider so personal plays out very publicly," he said in the interview. "The aftermath of the relationship was way more heavily publicised than 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."
Obviously, things got a little too intense once things came out. In Calvin's words, "all hell broke loose" and the pressure was clearly too much for him to handle. Looking back at his uncharacteristic Twitter outburst (now deleted, except for one tweet) when Tay's team revealed that she co-wrote the song, the DJ said that it really doesn't matter now.
"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," he said. "For both of us it was the wrong situation. It clearly wasn't right, so it ended..."
It's been great, TayVin, and we're glad you feel better now that you can talk about it.
