As I’ve said before, the whole Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris relationship really weirds me out. I just don’t buy it and I cannot imagine them together. I know opposites attract, but these two aren’t just opposites, they’re from entirely different universes. And while I can imagine it being genuine from Taylor’s side, since she’s a bit of a hopeless romantic and needs material for her new album, for Calvin, it seems quite obvious that this is all about raising his own public profile, and that seems to be working swimmingly.
Here are some things that Calvin had to say in an interview with KISS FM (via the Daily Mail):
On how their relationship is going:
“It’s going absolutely fantastic. It’s interesting because obviously there’s different things written about it every day and even if we don’t do anything publicly for a while, someone will make something up.”
On whether or not he minds all the media attention:
“For me it could be a lot worse and I’d still be like insanely happy with her, so I’m good with it.”
On trying to convince us that he really likes hanging out with Taylor:
“There’s a whole bunch of times where we’ve been hanging out and nobody’s clocked it. It’s not like every single time we go out, we get a photograph taken of us.”
On coping with dating a bigger star than he is:
“It’s a lot but you’ve just got to take it how it is which is that it’s a news story that people read but it’s just not real life.”
Of course not! The press totally wouldn’t bother you if it’s what you’re seeking in the first place! I mean, could this asshole be full of more bologna if he tried? I can’t deal with him. Hopefully Taylor gets away soon.
