Taylor Swift & Calvin Harris started texting again: will they get back together?


Taylor Swift has been pretty smart in the past month, hasn’t she? I mean, she’s given in to some bad instincts immediately following The Glorious Tiddlesplit of 2016, but after the first flurry of back-and-forth tabloid stories, she’s done well. She’s found a way to strike a balance between “hiding away until the craziness blows over” and “strutting around every day for the paparazzi.” She’s been visible, but it hasn’t been a constant barrage. She hasn’t said anything, but she’s not making a point to be “quiet” either. These are some photos of Tay-Tay out about in New York yesterday. This month has been a barrage of ‘90s fashion, and if Taylor is even climbing on the retro-flannel train, it might be time for me to invest in some of my favorite ‘90s flannel styles.

A few nights ago, Taylor did make a big show of going out with some friends: Cara Delevingne, Lorde and Jack Antonoff. It was a reminder that while Tay’s squad might not assemble to vanquish Tay’s enemies at this point, they still like her well enough to go out to dinner. I honestly thought Lorde and Tay had some kind of falling out, it seemed like they weren’t hanging out at all for months. But I guess they’re fine. You know who else is fine? Tay and Calvin Harris. Hm…

Satan’s gonna need a winter coat — Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are no longer at war after one of Hollywood’s nastiest breakups, and are firmly in the friend zone. Sources close to the former couple tell TMZ … shortly after Taylor and Tom Hiddleston broke up, Taylor and Calvin started texting and put an end to their drama.

It’s unclear who hit send first, but here’s what we do know — we’re told this is NOT a rekindling of the old fire. Also, they have NOT spoken on the phone or seen each other in person. It’s strictly text, but it’s been enough to erase the resentment that exploded after the June breakup … and that mess about who wrote “This Is What You Came For.”

There’s been buzz Calvin’s new single, “My Way,” is about getting over Taylor, but that had nothing to do with their decision to bury the hatchet. Besides, we’re told it’s really inspired by his old job at a grocery store. Nothing romantic … which is exactly how both sides describe the renewed friendship.

During the first blush of Tiddlebanging, when Taylor and her people were trying to destroy Calvin and Calvin was pushing back like a MF, I kept saying that it was a shame they were fighting – they really were perfect for each other in a lot of ways. Calvin still remains her longest relationship and arguably her most “mature.” Do I think that Taylor wants to get back with Calvin though? Eh. Probably not. And I doubt he wants to get back with her either. But my guess is that he was the one to text her first and he wanted to bury the hatchet.

    Katy Perry should be next.

    I’m dying for all them to do a song.

    • Sammy says:

      He has nothing to gain by texting her so she definitely texted first.

      • Brittney B. says:


        Other than the same gains he got from the relationship itself…? Like a hit song and a higher profile? He might thrive on drama and have his own connections, but she is still very powerful.

      • Samtha says:

        Eh, I believe he did. He’s the one who has seemed like he can’t let it (and her) go through this whole thing.

      • Annie says:

        Like he hasn’t had hit songs before her? Girl please brush up on your pop culture knowledge.

        I doubt he wants to get back with her. His ego was just bruised because she moved on so quickly and so publically. He has a huge ego, and is the sort of guy that doesn’t take light to cheating or even suspicion of cheating see the Rita ora. Eventually he mellows out, that’s what’s happening now imo.

  2. akua says:

    Please no, I can’t if two dying cats on my radio

  3. Drew says:

    Even though they were together for a year, I still didn’t see them as a couple.

  4. Jess says:

    I’ve said this before, but she’s been looking so young and healthy since she gained weight. It has done wonders to her. I really like how her body looks now.

    About Calvin, I believe it. They were together for 15 months, they probably would like to remember the good moments instead of the drama after the break up

  5. Deedee says:

    What are all those squiggles on her left forearm and hand. It looks like she has a worm infection.

  6. Becky says:

    If she was smart, she’d disappear for a while, i.e. not be papped, but she’s too much of a narcissist to do that.

    Another note; her hair looks awful in these pics and that cutoff shirt isn’t flattering.

  7. Nicole says:

    Lol at this point Taylor needs the good PR. And honestly the “bury the hatchet” looks good for CH esp after a Taylor tried to play him.
    I’m interested to see her next PR move

  8. lvw2 says:

    Oh for God’s sake!
    STAHP with this overly dramatic soap opera narrative with this girl….WOMAN!

  9. Locke Lamora says:

    As a proud lover of bobs and bangs, even I have to say, her hair looks awful. What are those bangs?

  10. Lora says:

    Yes, please get together again… gossipheaven

  11. cindy says:

    God I hope so. And than Katy can date him behind her back. Distract us from depressing brangelena/child abuse gossip (please?). DO IT.

  12. AlleyCat says:

    Taylor, if you have bangs, you need to straighten your hair. I can’t handle that atrocity on her head. I also really wish she would stop with the pap walks. Go away, let us miss you.

  13. Tiffany says:

    Swifty and Calvin, take one for the team. 2016 has been pretty crappy and some good old fashioned, petty gossip is needed. Come on. Come on.

  14. Kimma says:


  15. Lilacflowers says:

    I have been saying for months that they would be back together by Christmas

  16. Jasaga says:

    I don’t care about any of this. I am interested in Taylor Swift, however. For her music and art. I’m wondering what’s up next. Gossips isn’t for mature persons, imo.

  17. Max says:

    Too bad she can’t just date her narcissistic self and leave the rest of the world’s population in peace. Please just go away. She hangs on like a bad odor. Taylor should learn, if her enormous ego would ever let her- a little girl seeks revenge. a real woman moves on while karma does her dirty work… paybacks are hell and karma’s a bitch

  18. merlot says:

    Maybe he wants to not be in her bad books because he doesn’t want a ridiculous song written about him. The breakup was a PR disaster for both of them though so maybe they were advised to be seen to get along. Taylor was doing so well last year, she seemed to have moved on from a boy mad 15 year old in a woman’s body but it looked like she regressed this year. He was the cool superstar DJ/producer and he lost some street cred I imagine. Both need damage control.

  19. Pheadra says:

    She looks great other than the hair.. I can’t stand when my bangs look like that.

  20. Freddy Spaghetti says:

    I am so tired of people calling Taylor a narcissist. I grew up with one, and the way people toss the term around makes me very upset. Here’s an actual example of a narcissist celebrity: Lance Armstrong.

    • Becky says:

      I’m sorry you had to experience that.

      I’ve no doubt Armstrong is, narcissism is common in celebs because they’re attracted to the limelight. I don’t think anyone would know if Taylor actually had NPD, that would need to be assessed by a professional.

      The reason why she is described as a narcissist is because she displays the classic traits;

      Some characteristics which are obvious with her: constant need for attention, e.g. daily pap walks when she doesn’t have anything to promote (other artists don’t do this), exploitative with others (e.g. Kanye, her squad), averse to criticism, externalises blame/her need to be portrayed as the victim, lack of personal boundaries and dysfunctional relationships.

      • Freddy Spaghetti says:

        Becky, Taylor isn’t a narcissist because she gets papp’ed or because you think she has unhealthy relationships. You can call her one, and armchair diagnose all you want, but as someone who spent years with an actual narcissist, Taylor Swift is simply someone a lot of people don’t like. And again it’s really upsetting to see the term used as a description rather than the serious mental illness it is.

    • WeAreAllMadeOfStars says:

      Narcissist is a general term for a person who displays narcissistic traits. It existed way before the DSM diagnosis of NPD, and the terms are not interchangeable. Take a chill pill.

    • Bonzo says:

      Narcissism is a spectrum disorder and she definitely has some of the key traits, even if she doesn’t have the full-blown disorder on the extreme end.

    • eggy weggs says:

      So, Kanye bum-rushed a stage and demanded that another women be recognized for an award that was just warming in Taylor Swift’s hands; he constantly drops her name in a negative light; writes lyrics that say she would not be famous without him, and incites in incredibly petty feud that culminates in Swift now being referred to as a “snake emoji” … yet Taylor exploits HIM? Interesting.

      • Dara says:

        And when Taylor Swift herself got up on stage at the VMA’s in 2015 to present Kanye with his Vanguard award, said he was one of her favorite artists and “my friend”, she even quoted a few lines from their first VMA encounter in her own speech – just who exactly was exploiting their shared history in that moment?

      • bonzo says:


        And… let us not forget that Taylor took that moment back in 2009 to ensure that everyone saw her as the lily-white victim and Kanye as the horrible black man who tried to steal her spotlight. She came out of that more famous as many of us who don’t follow either, came to know about the incident. It was a PR win for her and lose for him. He apologized for it repeatedly, later, they supposedly made up and then he cleared the misogynistic lyrics with her on the phone call. She saw it as tongue-in-cheek and was in on the joke. Then she publicly shamed him at the Grammys, so naturally he defended himself and eventually Kim gave proof that Taylor had given her blessing for the lyrics.

        Taylor is just as guilty or more so for exploiting the “fued” for publicity.

      • virginfangirl says:

        But Kanye is a grade A jerk regardless.

  21. Lala says:

    Those damn shoes! Kill it with fire!

  22. Andrea says:

    I don’t know why, but I feel like they are suited for one another (both seem obsessed with fame and narcissists). Just get back together already!

  23. cherrypie says:

    I quite like her shoes…although it seems to be unpopular on this thread. I dunno, I like the idea of Calvin and Taylor together. Liked them as a couple so im not against the idea of them getting back together

  24. browniecakes says:

    Wasn’t she on tour for half of their relationship and that’s how they clocked in 15 months? A public facing music person would come closest to ‘getting’ her and her lifestyle I suppose.

    • Bonzo says:

      I’d clock it at 14 months since she was flirting with Hiddles a month before the breakup was announced. She was on tour for 7 of those months and by Feb the signs that they were having trouble were emerging. So, it only took about 4 months of “togetherness” before it was on shaky ground. March anniversary trip was the last ditch effort to save the dying romance and by end of April it was “over”. We just didn’t get the memo until beginning of June.

  25. Dlo says:

    All the money she has and look at that hair. It always looks damaged to me

  26. Pansy says:

    As one southern girl to another, Taylor you know you can’t have ANY wave in your hair in the south and have bangs. You’re acting like an amateur southerner.

  27. I Choose Me says:

    I like her whole outfit here including the shoes. That hair though. Wish she’s let her curls come out.

  28. Bread and Circuses says:

    Given I think Taylor only ditched Calvin to conjure up a bit PR relationship to distract the tabloids from Kim and Kanye being able to prove she lied, I think she’d be open to getting back together with Calvin, because he was NOT a PR relationship — just expendable.

    I don’t think Calvin should touch that idea with a ten-foot mike-stand, but declaring a truce would be good for both of them. They do work in the same industry.

  29. pcruz says:

    feral looking

  30. OTHER RENEE says:

    How on earth would anyone know that they are texting each other? Just another rumor for the gossip mills started by a tabloid.

  31. Ang says:

    Taylor Swift dates a few guys…breaks up with them…makes an album and repeats…of she needs more material she will “reconnect” with a previous guy…. Why guys keep dating her is a complete mystery…
