Harris is ready to introduce Swift to his family after just four months of dating. Sources:
They’re planning a trip to the UK with a few days in Scotland so she can meet his parents…This is the real thing. Taylor spent a long time being single, waiting for the right guy like him…Her parents love him. They think he’s the greatest.
Harris is allergic to Swift’s cats. The cats sleep in Swift’s bed, proving problematic for the relationship. Source:
When he stayed over at Taylor’s L.A. house . . . Calvin says he was up all night blowing his nose and complaining he couldn’t breathe. Apparently he’s allergic to the long fluffy hair on Taylor’s cats and they usually sleep in the bed so it’s everywhere.
Three years after the end of their romance, Swift has put Styles into the past. Source:
Taylor once thought she loved Harry, but since getting to know Calvin [Harris], she’s realised that Harry was never really more than a crush. The relationship was not nearly as serious as she thought it was at the time. Taylor was more than happy to delete Harry’s number. Calvin’s made her realize that boys like Harry are toxic for her and given her the confidence to cut him out of her life for good. She’s determined to show Calvin she’s serious about him and wants him to feel as secure as she does.

He wrote the song, he wrote the lyrics. So he’s got an amazing voice and he’s an amazing writer, which is like a golden combination. Like, you don’t really get that a lot. You get a lot of amazing singers who can’t really write. This guy does both.
Seacrest interviews Calvin Harris during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and asks him questions about how his music stays current.
You just need to listen to everything basically. I think people in the dance world can get insulated and just listen to dance music. The way that I was brought up is to just like listen to everything, embrace everything. I listen to every form of music, since you know, the 1960s. I get my influences from a lot of different places.
Seacrest interviews Harris during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him about how he feels writing songs for other artist.
I had two albums out before this last one I used to sing every single song and it wasn’t until maybe three, four years ago where I wanted to write songs for other people, like I wrote the Rihanna We Found Love song. And since then, I realized maybe I can use other people’s voices who are much better singers than me. And if I have a song that I think suits my voice or I don’t see anyone else singing it, I’ll just do it myself. I think the majority of people still don’t know it’s me who sings, which is completely fine. I’m good just being the producer guy.
