When your high-profile relationship and even higher-profile split plays out in front of a global audience, you have to expect a certain type of fall-out.

And while there's no doubt Taylor Swift has come out of Tayvin saga a lot worse off than her former boyfriend, Calvin Harris, the Scottish DJ hasn't managed to escape ridicule entirely.

Upon accepting a Future Icon award in Las Vegas this weekend, the 32-year-old star was placed in a fairly awkward position when host Howie Mandel made reference to his world-famous ex-girlfriend.


Thank you Caesars for my Future Icon award!!!

Cracking the biggest Dad joke of all time, the America's Got Talent judge complimented the DJ's threads, saying: "That’s a nice suit. Who’s your tailor?"

Only delighted with himself and the audience's reaction, Howie then added: "See what I did?"

After laughing off the jibe with a fake chortle you reserve solely for moments like that, Calvin responded: "You got that prepared, you had that one ready."

In spite of Howie's remark, Calvin kept his composure before delivering a speech, and sharing the moment online for Instagram users.


An honor to meet a living legend!!!

"Thank you Caesars for my Future Icon award!!" he wrote alongside two photos of himself proudly clutching the award.

Nice try, Howie.


With everything that's been going on of late – Kim, Kanye, Calvin & Co. – understandably, Taylor Swift hasn't had much time to tend to her usually busy social media platforms.

However, she has now emerged from self-imposed digital exile, taking to Instagram to mark the 24th birthday of her BFF Selena Gomez.

Posting a throwback snap of the duo making a heart with their hands, the singer wrote: “Going through old pictures today, because @selenagomez just turned 24! 

“I can’t imagine my life without you, Selena. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!”

Selena has had her friend's back in recent weeks, as Ms Swift, 26, manages the fall-out from her Kimye feud, the breakdown of her relationship with Calvin Harris, and her new romance with Tom Hiddleston. 

And the birthday gal also took to Twitter today with a 26-second long acoustic-sounding snippet from a forthcoming song.

"Did this on my birthday… coming soon. Thank you so all the love. I love you guys, God bless," she wrote as she shared her new music.

Significantly, the unveiled lyrics sang: "The world can be a nasty place. You know it; I know it.

"Still you don't have to fall from grace. Put down the weapons you fight with."

Which, coincidently, we reckon sound mighty suitable for Ms Tay-Tay Swift.



We can't believe how long this Taylor-Calvin saga is going on for. It has to be one of the most explosive break-ups in Hollywood history, and just when you think it's going to calm down, it blows right back up again.

The singer has divided the Internet (and practically the world), and now many people are taking sides in this who-will-come-out-on-top battle.

Calvin Harris went on an explosive rant on Twitter yesterday, calling Taylor's team out for making him look bad. THEN Katy Perry joined in and our minds were blown.

Many celebs have taken sides, as well as… Jedward. The twins took to Twitter to tell their fans that they think Tay is ah-mazing and nobody should believe what's being said about her in the media:

Jedward met Taylor back in 2011 during her Dublin gig, and we'd say they still have a little soft spot for her.



It’s only been few hours since Calvin Harris launched a stream of Twitter abuse at his ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift and already singer Katy Perry has come up with the perfect response to the increasingly complicated situation.

While clarifying that Taylor did play an important part in the creation of This Is What You Came For, Calvin managed to have a sly dig at Hiddleswift and potentially re-ignite Taylor’s feud with Katy Perry.

It’s long been suspected that Roar singer Katy and the controversial Miss Swift don’t see eye to eye, but last year Taylor basically confirmed it when she revealed Bad Blood was inspired by a female artist who had stabbed her in the back.

And now Calvin has added major fuel to that fire by tweeting: “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.”

In a pretty smooth move Katy has since posted a caption-free gif which shows presidential candidate Hilary Clinton raising her eyebrows and shrugging her shoulders in what looks like amusement.

And on top of that, the star has retweeted her own tweet from May last year which says: "Time, the ultimate truth teller."

Oh, it is on!

Calvin Harris has taken to Twitter to confirm that his ex Taylor Swift did in fact play a part in the production of This Is What You Came for which he released with Rihanna earlier this year and the superstar DJ even managed to take a tidy shot at Hiddleswift while he was at it.

Today TMZ reported that back when Talvin was a thing the pair came up with the tune and recorded a demo of it on TayTay’s phone but later decided not to release it together, hence why Rihanna eventually appeared on the track.

And while Taylor was originally named as a co-writer in the credits, her name was later changed to Nils Sjoberg which is apparently her pseudonym.

With reports circulating that the song is what came between the couple and eventually propelled Taylor into the arms of Tom Hiddleston, Calvin has stepped up to put the record straight.

In a series of new tweets the Scottish DJ admits Taylor did play a role in the creation of the song and calls her an “amazing lyric writer” (sweet) before calling out Taylor’s team for trying to make him look bad with the story.

He wrote: “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.”

“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.”

Things then got real juicy when Calvin attacked the seemingly unbreakable Hiddleswift by tweeting: “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.”

“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.”  Oh, Calvin!

“Please focus on the positive aspects of YOUR life because you've earned a great one.”

“God bless everyone have a beautiful day.”

He finished the Twitter tirade with a link to the song in question in which he tagged Rihanna, not Taylor.

We think we need a little lie down after that.

They have denied rumours in the past, but now it has surfaced that Taylor Swift was the brains behind This Is What You Came For.

The track by Calvin Harris and Rihanna originally named Taylor as a co-writer, but the credit list later changed her name to Nils Sjoberg, which is believed to be Ms Swift's pseudonym.

However, now TMZ is reporting that is was the song that had Taylor and Calvin at "breaking point."


Biggest video in the world right now!!! 36m views in 5 days!!!!! Thank you so much @badgalriri

According to the site, while Tay Tay and Calvin were still dating, she came up with the song and did a demo on her phone.

Then after forwarding it to Calvin, the couple hit the studio and did a full demo with Taylor singing and Calvin on the beat. They later realised if they released it together, it would be more about them and not about the track.


This is what you came for. @gigihadid @lilyaldridge

So in the end, Calvin recorded it with Rihanna. However, on the day of the release, Calvin was interviewed by Ryan Seacrest, and when asked if he'd ever record with his then-girlfriend, Calvin said: "You know we haven't even spoken about it. I can't see it happening though."

TMZ claims that this was the "breaking point in the relationship," and that "Taylor was hurt and felt Calvin took it too far."

It was just days afterwards that Taylor was spotted dancing the night away with Tom Hiddleston at the Met Gala.

The website also alleges that Taylor's squad want to reveal the truth behind the track because "they're sick of Calvin trashing Taylor and feel he should be thanking her for quietly giving him a smash hit."



It appears Calvin Harris has a very strong rebound game.

When the pictures of his ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift, kissing British actor Tom Hiddleston surfaced, the DJ got back up on his feet and and made sure pictures of him dancing with hot girls were captured.

However, even though he's said since that he'll never date another celebrity, he was spotted giving X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger a lift home from a London night club.

The pair partied together over the weekend, however, sources tell TMZ that he just bumped into her on the night and offered her and her friends a lift home. What a gentleman!

It must have been a long night though, as it was bright when the DJ's car left Nicole to her door.

They would make such a hot couple, though, right?



This week, Calvin Harris announced that he was releasing a new track, and EVERYONE started to label it as his 'break-up' song.

The Internet has been swirling around major conspiracy theories over the past few weeks, so does this song tell us a bit more about the split?

Urmmm, kinda.

The single belongs to John Newman, but Calvin wrote and produced it. Throughout the track, John sings about his ex-flame and how their relationship has fizzled out. 

When first listening to the track, it's quite preppy and upbeat, but don't be fooled – Calvin is p*ssed, and we're going straight to the second verse for evidence.

"My heart speaks/ I ain't seen you or been with you for weeks/ But I see online that you've begun to be/ A good girl and take trips with your boyfriend/ Being attentive, continue to pretend."

OUCH. Now, we're totally over-analysing here BUT "continue to pretend" – does Calvin know the TayTo romance is fake?!

And, "You've begun to be a good girl" – Is Taylor really a mean girl?!

So. Many. Questions. And if you want to over-analyse the lyrics for yourself, you can find them here.

Have fun!



She might have him well beaten in the rebound stakes, but Calvin Harris seems to have smashed Taylor Swift’s chances of being the first ex to make music about their famous split.

According to TMZ, the Scottish DJ is working on a new track called Ole which is supposedly written from the perspective of TayTay’s new love Tom Hiddleston.

And if the lyrics are anything to go by, it seems Calvin is pretty convinced that TayTom were getting together before he and the Bad Blood singer officially ended their 15 month romance.

The song says: "I see online that you begun to be a good girl and take trips with your boyfriend.  Being attentive, continue to pretend."

"You've hidden my name in your phone so you can call me to tell me you've been going through hell.  Left him alone and you booked in a hotel."

And in a possible reference to Tom’s role as Loki in Thor: "Low key you won't tell none of your friends about me."


John Newman

TMZ’s sources say the Summer hitmaker has no bad feelings towards Tom as he believes the actor has been mesmerised by Taylor.

Although it has yet to be revealed when exactly the track will be released, it is said John Newman will be its featured singer as he and Calvin were spotted in Mexico together last week where the song’s video was shot.

The news comes almost two weeks after Calvin swayed from his original statement that his split with Taylor was filled with love and respect by telling an Instagram follower that his ex “controlled the media” and that he “had no idea what was going on”.

We wonder how easy it’ll be for Taylor to shake this one off.


Taylor Swift is the queen of serial dating in Hollywood, having sparked a new romance with English hottie, Tom Hiddleston. 

The Blank Space singer recently called it quits on a 15-month long relationship with DJ Calvin Harris, and is already back in love with a new man.

Almost like a dating chameleon, Taylor seems to re-vamp her personal style with every new fella she gets. 

Cutie pie

Ah, the early days. Back in 2008, Taylor dated boy-bander Joe Jonas, and embodied the concept of a pop princess.

Tay was always seen wearing precious pastel numbers, and always looked like the All American princess that she is.

High school sweetheart

When Tay Swift started dating Taylor Lautner in 2009, her style remained very sweet, and American.

She was seen donning more athletic looks, similar to those Taylor Lautner wore.

Dressing down

Taylor had a brief fling with actor, Jake Gyllenhaal in 2010, which saw her dressing down in a major way, and wearing a lot of dark blues JUST LIKE Jake. 


Darker times

Things changed for Taylor in 2009, when she started a fling with singer-songwriter (and professional bad boy) John Mayer.

Taylor ditched the pretty dresses that she had become known for, and began opting for darker silhouettes, perhaps to match John's #darksoul.

Political stance

Taylor dated political heir, Conor Kennedy for a few months in 2012, and totally embraced her inner Jackie O with midi skirts and floral prints.

Casual cool 

Moving on from the dark shades of John Mayer, T Swift dated our favourite One Direction boy, Harry Styles in 2012.

This relationship involved a laid back approach to style, with Tay seen rocking jeans, jackets and comfortable knitwear throughout.

Getting sexy

Taylor left her princess status behind her when she started dating Calvin Harris in 2015.

We saw daring hem lines, plunging necklines and general sassiness in her style. Taylor also got a major chop, ditching her long blond locks for a more grown up bob. 

Matchy matchy

Taylor's latest beau is English actor, and absolute BABE, Tom Hiddleston.

Nicknamed "Hiddleswift" by the media, the couple have been spotted wearing matching quilted jackets and jeans while out and about. 



To think that Calvin Harris and his former love Taylor Swift always seemed so perfectly in love.

But it seems the whole experience of dating one of the world's most famous women has put the Scottish DJ off celebrities for life.

That and he reckons the Trouble singer-songwriter – slim, blonde and tall – was never his type anyway.

In fact, sources close to him exclusively told TMZ that the 32-year-old is now after the polar opposite of Ms Swift: think a sultry, curvy brunette. 

The juicy deets? Well, they reckon that Calvin believes celebs are a narcissistic bunch, and all he wants is a normal girl. As for his type, he's thinking sexy Latina… a Sophia Vergara who is NOT famous.

The friends add that Mr Harris can't believe Tay-Tay dumped him so soon after his car accident.

He also says, according to the same sources, that the 26-year-old megastar was so obsessed with her life and career she felt put out whenever he had plans that conflicted with what she wanted him to do. 

So there you go!

We await Ms Swift's response…



Taylor Swift has never shied away from acknowledging that her turbulent love life is prime fodder for chat show hosts and stand-up comedians who appear fascinated by the fact the 26-year-old has – shock, horror – yet to settle down, get married and start a family.

And while the 'Taylor – Serial Dater' jokes fell by the wayside while she was dating Calvin Harris, it looks like they've come back ten-fold since she began getting cosy with Tom Hiddleston, and it doesn't look like U.S chat show host Wendy Williams is overly impressed.

Commenting on the unlikely new union, Wendy suggested that Taylor should be less open about her new relationship, beginning: "Apparently, they're getting serious."

"I know, it's only been three weeks. She's 26 – that's old enough to understand, like, you don't show your feelings on your sleeve in three weeks, you know," she added.

While we all know Tay's ex, Calvin, was less than impressed that the Bad Blood singer had already met Tom's mum when she reportedly refused to meet his, Wendy was more concerned that Taylor had introduced Tom to her own parents.

Suggesting that she'd send her parents into overdrive with the implications of her new romance, Wendy continued: "This is not good. First of all, you don't want your parents counting your number."

"And honey child … what you don't understand, whether you're a man or a woman – every time you bring someone home – your parents are like, 'That's number three," she opined while her audience laughed at the notion that Taylor had hired paps to take snaps of herself and Tom kissing at her home in Rhode Island.

And Taylor wasn't the only one in Wendy's firing line, with the popular host calling 35-year-old Tom 'opportunistic' for getting into a relationship with Taylor.

Jeez Wendy, how dya really feel?!
