Taylor Swift’s Rep Confirms She Wrote “This Is What You Came For”

It appears that Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift may have actually broken up over “This Is What You Came For,” because Tay’s rep confirms a part of the story- that Tay wrote the hit!

“Taylor Swift wrote “This Is What You Came For” under the pseudonym Nils Sjoberg,” the singer’s rep confirmed to People yesterday, after we learned via TMZ (and honestly, Calvin’s twitter feed) that Swift wrote the song but didn’t want it to be overshadowed by her relationship with Harris at the time.

After recording a full demo, they agreed to keep the collaboration on the down-low, but Swift was hurt after Harris did an interview and said he couldn’t foresee working with his then-girlfriend in the future.

“You know, we haven’t even spoken about it. I can’t see it happening though,” Harris told Ryan Seacrest while promoting the song. And then, she decided to do some “collaborating” with Tom Hiddleston.

A little shady of Calvin, but also, I’m SURE Tay is used to getting her way.

Calvin Harris Isn’t Going To Be Taylor’s Doormat. A BEEF IS ON!

Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris breakup over Thai massage parlor visits?

Can you smell the BEEF?!

Calvin Harris is up and ready to fight, because sources are saying that Taylor Swift wrote “This Is What You Came Forand dude will not have it!

Calvin reacted to the story that Taylor wrote the lyrics and recorded a demo of the song, which Calvin used to produce the final edit. He began admitting that Taylor is a great lyricist and helped out, but not to get the story twisted. He said that Taylor is an “Amazing lyric writer and she smashed it as usual.” But then came his true feelings: “I wrote the music, produced the song, arranged it and cut the vocals though. And initially she wanted it kept secret.”

During the Twitter rant, Calvin added that it was “hurtful” that Taylor and co. are trying to make him look bad, and suggested she focus on her new relationship, instead of attacking him.

And then…he referenced Tay’s famous beef with Katy Perry! COULD THIS GET ANY BETTER?!

Taylor Swift Wrote Calvin Harris’ “This Is What You Came For”

Taylor Swift Out And About In NYC

This ain’t over yet!

Apparently, Taylor Swift really is the creative brains behind Calvin Harris‘ hit “This is What You Came For,” and their relationship fell apart because he disrespected her when the song was released! WHAT.

Yes, not because of cheating, not because she was clingy or anything like that. NOW, the new rumors is that during Tay and Cal’s relationship, Taylor wrote the song and did a demo. She sent it to Calvin, who loved it. Then they did a full demo with Calvin’s beat and Taylor’s vocals and BAM, a song was born. So you see, it was Taylor and Calvin together (to say the LEAST) but both agreed it was a bad idea to let the world know they collaborated as a couple-it would overshadow the song. So Calvin released it and Taylor used the pseudonym Nils Sjoberg on the credits and to maintain publishing rights. Fast forward to present…

Calvin released the song with Rihanna and it became an instant hit. It’s been at #1 or #2 on the Dance/Electronic chart for 9 weeks, and is #5 on the Billboard 100.

The problem in the relationship came the day the song was released. Calvin appeared on Ryan Seacrest‘s radio show and Ryan asked, “Will you do a collaboration with your girlfriend?” Calvin responded, “You know we haven’t even spoken about it. I can’t see it happening though.”

We’re told Taylor was hurt and felt Calvin took it too far.

It was a quick downward spiral from that point. One source called it “the breaking point in the relationship.” The Met Gala was several days later, when Taylor danced with Tom Hiddleston.

BTW … Taylor has the right to prohibit Calvin from performing the song, but she hasn’t and doesn’t plan to exercise that right. Ironically, Calvin once wrote a song with then-GF Rita Ora and when they broke up he yanked her right to perform it.

As for why the squad is talking now … we’re told they’re sick of Calvin trashing Taylor and feel he should be thanking her for quietly giving him a smash hit.

No word from Taylor’s rep- but man, if this is true?! JUICY!

Amy Schumer Made A Couple Enemies On The Way To The Top

Stars Filming 'Inside Amy Schumer' In NYC

They can’t all be Jennifer Lawrences, can they?

Amy Schumer and Tig Notaro, are no longer friends because comedians are just like real people: fake, angry and wont to fracture their relationships in ways that can’t be repaired. And this is one such relationship. You may know Tig as a writer for Inside Amy Schumer, The Sarah Silverman Show and a pretty successful comedian in her own right. Tig Notaro got down deep about her fracture with Amy ina recent interview with The Guardian, and in case you couldn’t already have guessed, it was AWKS. Tig was asked about some comments Amy made about Tig to Vanity Fair back in 2012, and Amy was quoted as saying this about her “close friend” Tig:

“Looking masculine and being gay, the challenges of the road are 20 times harder for Tig than other female comedians. People fear what they don’t understand.

Fast forward 4 years later: they’re definitely neither “close” nor “friends” anymore. When asked if it was still true that it was 20 times harder for Tig than other female comedians, Tig responded with this:

Anger sparks in Notaro’s normally calm eyes. “I don’t know what she was talking about. It sounds like offensive nonsense to me. I find that so offensive and weird,” she says, looking down, trying to control her very audible irritation. “If you knew me well, you would never say that.”

And then Tig got even more pissed- not even calling Amy a friend.

“Ummm…” Notaro says, looking away. Did you just work with her? The atmosphere, previously relaxed, has palpably prickled. “I’ve worked with her. I worked with her for the first season [of Inside Amy Schumer]. Let’s leave it there,” Notaro says, closing down the subject.

(Via The Guardian)

Not too long after, Tig took a swipe at some “inauthentic” comedians who she claims tried to take care of her during her breast cancer struggle “just to look good.” Dang. You hear that, Amy?

This makes me really sad, because I like both of them so much. But I get it, crazy shizzz can go down in show business and in life (and with cancer in the mix? Who frigging knows).

Maybe they’ll make amends, someday?
