Calvin Harris speaks!

While the Scottish DJ has teased his true feelings about his split from Taylor Swift these last few months, the This Is What You Came For artist has finally opened up about his VERY public breakup. Bless!

For a candid chat with GQ, the industry vet shared:

“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.”

Fair, fair! Not to mention, Harris is vehement he and Taylor NEVER wanted the extra attention that came with their romance. On his relationship with Taylor, Calvin continued:

“When we were together, we were very careful for it not to be a media circus. She respected my feelings in that sense.”

Well that’s good to hear! Nonetheless, it seems Calvin is still not thrilled with his love life being covered in the press. In fact, the music producer may’ve touched on his ended romance with the Blank Space singer during his speech at the GQ Men of the Year event in London.

Thankfully, one fan captured the speech and shared it on Instagram (below).

Despite being annoyed with the press, Calvin isn’t necessarily pleased with how he handled the split on Twitter. In case you forgot, Harris called out his former flame after her involvement on his latest single was revealed. He relayed to the magazine:

“It was completely the wrong instinct. I was protecting what I see as my one talent in the world being belittled. It felt like things were piling on top of me and that was when I snapped. I’m not good at being a celebrity, but when it ended, all hell broke loose. 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.”

Huh. Ironically, this candor about the fall of Tayvin comes right after Miz Swift and latest beau Tom Hiddleston called it quits on their relationship. Oof!

We mean, it probably helps that Calvin has reportedly moved on with Eiza González. Nothing like a new love to get over an old one, right? LOLz!
