Us Weekly has the scoop.
“Bye-bye, bad blood! Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are texting again after their headline-making split in June, a source confirms.
‘It was a very brief, simple text exchange,’ the source tells Us. ‘They are going to run into each other around town and at events, and they need it to be cool. So if the media sees them in the same place, they won’t start freaking out.'”
The anonymous contacts insist the former couple “absolutely have no plans to get back together.” Should we believe them? After all, other so-called sources insisted that Swift was truly, madly, and deeply in love with Tom Hiddleston. That bizarre love affair began just within a breath of Swift’s break-up with Harris. Then it was over — after just three months of dating.
This public olive branch extension is the first of its kind for Taylor Swift. Typically, we only hear about Taylor and her exes when she lambasts them in her music. However, Calvin Harris might be a strong exception here.
Her early attempts to throw shade at the successful DJ backfired big-time. E! Online reports Harris was hurt by Swift’s quick rebound with Hiddleston. He also admitted during his epic Twitter rant to being upset by the accusations Swift’s reps made to People.
“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.”
It’s easy to argue that Calvin Harris had the strongest, most public reaction to Taylor Swift. And it’s also easy to argue that Taylor Swift realizes that the public will never be on her side if she attacks Harris in the future.
What does this mean? Well, it could be that Swift may have truly met her match in Harris. And when that happens, it’s really hard to do much better.
When you think about it, Calvin Harris is perfect for Taylor Swift in every possible way.
- They’re both tall, so Taylor doesn’t need to slouch.
- The two are passionate about their individual music careers.
- They’re both very successful and talented.
- They look amazing together!
Going from Calvin Harris to Tom Hiddleston was an absolute downgrade. Yes, Tom is beloved by fangirls the world over thanks to turn as Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, what exactly did he bring to the relationship with Taylor Swift in terms of star power?
What star quality he had died with that “I Love T.S.” shirt.

Tom Hiddleston wasn’t her equal at that point. He was a laughingstock, and the relationship made Taylor Swift look bad. That was hardly the case when Swift was with Harris. They were a visually appealing couple. It was always exciting to think of the chart-topping pop music they could one day make together.
With the two apparently on good terms, this could still happen at some point. Just look at the buzz Taylor and Calvin received from just texting each other!
This news also marks the first really positive publicity that Swift received since she brought an end to “Hiddleswift.” That’s not a coincidence. If Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris were to find a way back to each other romantically, it would generate huge publicity. Swift could certainly spin it as realizing what she had with Harris — and really wanting it back.
In any case, it’s hard not to “freak out” about Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris. Amid all the shocking breakups, it would be nice to have a shocking reconciliation.
