Now that Hiddleswift is over, I’m sure Calvin is doing some reflecting on the whole situation he had with Taylor Swift, though this interview with British GQ was done months before the breakup actually happened. In any case, Calvin’s always down to talk about his breakup, and is DEFINITELY down for doing a sexy photoshoot to pair it with. Here’s what he says about the two of them:
“It’s very difficult when something I consider so personal plays out very publicly,” he tells the mag. “The aftermath of the relationship was way more heavily publicized than 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.”
However, everything changed when they split:
“But when it ended, all hell broke loose,” he says. “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.”
“For both of us it was the wrong situation,” he adds. “It clearly wasn’t right, so it ended, but all of the stuff that happened afterwards…”
He trails off there, but admits the ensuing Twitter battle was the wrong way to go.
“It was completely the wrong instinct,” he adds [via The Sun]. “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.”

It’s actually a pretty candid interview, and this information seems pretty real to me. But I call BS on Calvin “not being good at being a celebrity.” Psshhht. Bet you arent’ saying that every time you flash your abs on instagram, bro.
