The Internet had a field day when news broke that Taylor Swift and boyfriend Tom Hiddleston had broken up, this after just three months together. If one can recall, it was somewhere in June-July, barely two weeks after Swift dumped DJ boyfriend Calvin Harris, that she and Loki were spotted making out on the rocks, in all the right angles. Then, during her July 4 weekend star-studded bash, Hiddleston waded the ocean in a t-shirt that openly declared his love for Taylor, saying I *heart* TS. Of course, Robert Downey Jr. took a dig at his Avengers co-star by commenting that he was declaring his love for Tony Stark, Downey’s character in the hit Marvel franchise.
Swift fans were quick to dub the new in-love couple as #HiddleSwift and that seemed to have pissed off her former flame, Harris, real name Adam Wiles. He immediately took to Twitter to hurl accusations at his ex-girlfriend, saying she used their relationship for publicity and also that she should move on, instead of still trying to have anything to do with him after she clearly moved on with the Hollywood hunk. This outburst happened after Swift took credit for Harris’ song of the summer with Rihanna, This Is What You Came For. Under the pseudonym Nils Sjoberg, TS had actually been the lyricist and wanted to make that clear to the public.
At the same time as Calvin was going public with the bitter aftertaste in his mouth that was Taylor, Kanye West again decided to mock her in public, accompanied by his wife, Kim Kardashian. They released damning videos of Taylor of a conversation she had earlier denied being a part of, and Harris seemed to be taking Yeezy’s side in the matter. They even hung out together at JLo’s birthday bash for all the world to see.
But now, after Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston got done with each other, Calvin seems to have had a change of heart. In an interview with GQ, on which he is the cover story, he says: “It’s very difficult when something I consider so personal plays out very publicly. The aftermath of the relationship was way more heavily publicized in 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.”
He also added that “all hell broke loose” after their breakup and that what he had said on Twitter was a reaction to the craziness he was faced with. “Now I see that Twitter thing as a result of me succumbing to pressure. It took me a minute to realize that none of that matters. I’m a positive guy.”
