You might dish it out Calvin, but you clearly can't take it

Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris

I see Calvin Harris has broken his silence on the whole controversy over who really wrote his song featuring Rihanna, This is What You Came For.

Taylor Swift's involvement with the huge hit has long been rumoured, after she was originally listed as a co-writer on the Wikipedia entry for the track. The entry was then quickly changed to Nils Sjoberg - now confirmed to be Taylor's pseudonym.

Calvin sent out a string of tweets - clearly wanting to set the record straight by saying that he was the one who wrote the music, produced the song, arranged it and cut the vocals.

Bitter

While he admits Taylor also sang some of the lyrics and "smashed it as usual", it's clear that he's unimpressed with the timing of the reveal.

He wrote how it was "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".

In my opinion, if Calvin had left it there, he would have retained the moral high ground.

But instead he went on to say: "I figure if you're happy in your new relationship you should focus on that instead of trying to tear your ex down for something to do". He then dragged Katy Perry into it saying how "you need someone new to bury like Katy".

I can see where he's coming from and I believe the rumours that Taylor Swift is very controlling and manipulative when it comes to the media.

But I feel like while they're hugely entertaining, these tweets haven't phased Swift in the slightest.

Calvin just looks bitter.

Previously, I was always 'Team Calvin' because I felt like Taylor handled the situation pretty insensitively by moving on so quickly and so publicly with Tom Hiddleston.

But you have to bear in mind that you never really know what goes on behind closed doors.

I also feel like Calvin is having a taste of his own medicine now after he wrote a song with his ex-girlfriend Rita Ora, and then banned her from performing it after they split.

He's clearly no stranger to petty post break-up behaviour but he doesn't seem to handle it well when he's on the receiving end.
