It’s been more than a year since Calvin Harris’ break up with Taylor Swift, the DJ recently explained what caused him to go on an epic Twitter rant against his girlfriend after their split.
During a chat with British GQ, the “Slide” artist reflected on his brief feud with Swift after her team released a statement saying that Swift “wrote ‘This Is What You Came For’ under the pseudonym Nils Sjoberg.”
Harris, who called Swift out over the statement, told GQ that Twitter wasn’t the right way to express his feelings. “It was completely the wrong instinct,” he said.
“I was protecting what I see as my one talent in the world being belittled,” Harris explained.
The DJ revealed that part of his reaction was based on his personal life being publicly exposed. “It’s very difficult when something I consider so personal plays out very publicly. The aftermath of the relationship was way more heavily publicized than the relationship itself.”
