DJ and producer Calvin Harris criticized his former girlfriend, pop star Taylor Swift, on social media on Wednesday, for making him “look bad” after People magazine revealed that Swift had written Harris’ latest hit song under a pseudonym.
The magazine reported that Swift had written the song “This is What You Came For,” under the pseudonym ‘Nils Sjoberg’ while the couple were dating. The report also added that Swift became upset over an interview in which Harris said he did not think he would work with her in the future.
A clearly upset Harris sent out a series of tweets directed at Swift.
And she sings on a little bit of it too 🙃Amazing lyric writer and she smashed it as usual https://t.co/vW3yGOIJit— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) July 13, 2016
Praising Swift’s lyric-writing talents, Harris claimed she had wanted to keep their collaboration secret.
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
He further accused Swift of painting him in a bad light.
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 demanded her to concentrate on her new relationship.
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
Harris also hinted at a long-speculated feud between Swift and pop star 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
Harris further asked her to focus on the positive aspects of her life.
Please focus on the positive aspects of YOUR life because you’ve earned a great one— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) July 13, 2016
The couple split last month after dating for more than a year. Swift, who was named 2016’s highest-earning celebrity by Forbes magazine this week, has recently been reportedly dating British actor Tom Hiddleston.
Representatives for Perry did not respond for comment.
