The Taylor Swift / Calvin Harris saga hasn’t gone away you know
Just because Kim and Kanye are sucking all the publicity back in their direction doesn’t mean we should forget about the Calvin feud

Right folks, this week is a Taylor Swift special. Since we last reported that herself and Calvin Harris broke up, things have taken a turn. Onwards!
So to recap: Taylor deleted all Instagram pics featuring Calvin, and Calvin did the same.
Then last week, Taylor’s team confirmed to People magazine that, actually, she had written Calvin’s current song This Is What You Came For under a pseudonym: Nils Sjoberg. She even sings on the track too (listen for the ‘you’ that’s pitched a bit lower).
Next up, Calvin
After Taylor’s team confirmed that Taylor had written This Is What You Came For, he unleashed a stream of tweets. Initially, he praised Taylor’s lyrics and skill, but then went on: “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. 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.”
To make things stranger, Jedward shared their thoughts on the whole situation by tweeting: Keep your creativity flowing @taylorswift13 and never stop dreaming your wildest dreams. All the misconceptions about @taylorswift13 are stupid and created by people with no respect, she’s a lot more then what’s put out there. Keep listening to your dearest friends @taylorswift13 cause they know you best and stay away from the tangled web of bad blood.”
And Then over the weekend, Taylor and Kanye locked heads once more. Summation: Did Kanye run that “bitch” line by Taylor or not? Kanye says yes – and he has the voice recording to prove it. Taylor says no, and says the voice recording proves it
Track of the week
5SOS - Girls Talk Boys
This track from the Ghostbusters soundtrack is unashamedly funky and we are 100 per cent here for it. Syncopated and sexier than 5SOS have been before, the bass line pushes their advances forward until the bridge pulls back, transforming all of an sudden, into an intimate moment. It wasn’t a come-on at all, it was a nervous first-time boyfriend seeking re-assurance. More of this please.
