This is not what he came for.

On Wednesday, news broke that Taylor Swift wrote her ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris’ hit, “This Is What You Came For,” so Harris took to Twitter to tell his side of the story. While he praised Swift as a lyricist and a singer, he said he found it “hurtful to me at this point that her and her team would go so far out of their way to try and make ME look bad at this stage though.”

He continued: “I figure if you’re happy in your new relationship you should focus on that instead of trying to tear your ex bf down for something to do. I know you’re off tour and you need someone new to try and bury like Katy ETC but I’m not that guy, sorry. I won’t allow it.”

Swift, who started dating Tom Hiddleston just a few weeks after her split with Harris in June, is not new to drama with ex-BFs, pop stars and ex-BF pop stars. Here are four other celebs with whom Swift has also had some “Bad Blood.”

Katy Perry

In his Wednesday Tweet storm, Harris directly called out Swift’s complicated relationship with Perry, saying that his ex had tried to “bury” her. Most of Perry and Swift’s supposedly long-running feud has played out through elusive quotes in magazine profiles and vague subtweets.

The same month that Swift explained the meaning of her song “Bad Blood” to Rolling Stone about a pop star friend who did something so horrible they became “straight-up enemies,” Perry tweeted: “Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing.”

In 2015, Swift finally addressed the feud – by not addressing it. “I’m not going to give them anything to write about,” she told The Telegraph. “I’m never going to talk about her in my interview. It’s not going to happen.”


After Harris’ most recent tweets about Swift trying to “bury” her, Perry only had this to say:

Shortly after, Perry retweeted a cryptic tweet from 2015, and it’s pretty clear she’s throwing shade.

John Mayer

On The Late Late Show in 2015, Mayer poked fun at his relationship with his ex. “You can see me at the Grammy Awards doing what I do best,” he said. “Being avoided by Taylor Swift.”

While Swift never confirmed her song “Dear John” was actually about her time dating Mayer, he told Rolling Stone that it made him feel “terrible.”

“Because I didn’t deserve it. I’m pretty good at taking accountability now, and I never did anything to deserve that. It was a really lousy thing for her to do.” (His 2013 song “Paper Doll” is allegedly about Swift – its lyrics include the line, “Someone’s gonna paint you another sky,” which seems to riff off of, “You paint me a blue sky and go back and turn it to rain,” a line from “Dear John.”)

Kanye West

On his latest album The Life of Pablo, West rapped, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why, I made that bitch famous.” The lyrics allude to the 2009 MTV VMA’s when West interrupted Swift’s Best Female Video acceptance speech to say that Beyoncé actually deserved the award.

Swift’s celebrity BFFs – including Jaime King and Gigi Hadid – instantly came to her defense.

Swift’s brother, Austin, also shared his reaction with fans, posting a video of him trashing his Yeezy 350 Boosts.

Swift and West had previously been on good terms, with the pop star telling Vanity Fair in August, “I feel like I wasn’t ready to be friends with him until I felt like he had some sort of respect for me, and he wasn’t ready to be friends with me until he had some sort of respect for me.”


In 2014, the DJ-producer tweeted, “Someone should make a kickstarted to get taylor swift a booty,” and some of his fans actually created a “Get Taylor Swift a Booty” fundraiser on a crowd-funding site. But when you mess with Swift, you mess with the squad – Lorde immediately jumped to Swift’s defense, tweeting, “@diplo we should do something about your tiny penis while we’re at it hm.” (The singer since deleted the tweet.)


Diplo has since said that his feud with Swift was “one of the biggest mistakes” of his career. In an interview with British GQ Style, he revealed why he’ll never cross her again.

“All I know is don’t ever get into a feud with Taylor Swift. She has like 50 million people that will die for her. You can’t step into that arena. That was something I was never prepared for one of the biggest makes of my career was definitely f–––ing with her.”
