Calvin Harris has been making headlines for his split with Taylor Swift and his social media presence. The Scottish DJ has been trying to stay low while working on his fitness and his music, but both the media and the fans seem more interested in what happened between him and the pop star.
Last week, it was reported that Calvin Harris, 32, unfollowed both Taylor Swift, 26, and her brother Austin Swift on Instagram. He also deleted the loving photos of the couple along with a tweet that read he had nothing but “love and respect” for his fellow artist. Now, just a week later, Harris has refollowed Taylor Swift and Austin Swift, along with his other famous ex-girlfriend, Rita Ora.

Fans have been wanting to know why Calvin decided to refollow Taylor on Instagram since it’s clear that the singer has already moved on with British actor Tom Hiddleston. Well, he’s now revealing the reason why in the comments section of Instagram.
He told one fan that he had no clue that Swift had someone else waiting in the wings. He may have also hinted that Swift’s sudden relationship with Hiddleston is somewhat PR related. Harris wrote, “she controlled the media and this situation, I had no idea what was going on. So that kind of makes it a lot worse from my perspective.”
When another fan asked him why he unfollowed and then refollowed her, he said simply because he can. Then, Calvin added, “I cared too much and then I didn’t care at all. I am a real person remember [?].”
The producer also insists that he’s “not jealous” of Taylor’s newfound relationship with Tom. He says that he’s finally “free” of the singer, and that he shouldn’t be upset over their split since “she’s def not sad” these days.
Then one fan summed it up for the others, “For all we know Taylor broke up with him to be with another man and that is quite upsetting. I would be hurt by that too. He’s not being mean. He deserves to feel free while he’s single and not feel jealous.”
Harris responded to the fan, writing, “you’re the only smart one at this point.”
“I almost f****** died!”

This isn’t the only social media rant that the hit maker has had in recent days. On Wednesday, June 22, Calvin took to social media to talk about the importance of leg day. It all started on Snapchat when Calvin shared a video of himself driving to the gym and talking about how he never skips a “leg day” workout.
“Leg day brings out the best in a man. Too many people neglect leg day,” he can be heard saying in the clip.
Then, Harris showed off his delicious leg day lunch and made time for a shirtless selfie. He also posted a screenshot of a text message conversation with an anonymous person on Instagram who interrupted his all-important leg day.
Then, Calvin took to Twitter to stress the importance of leg day once more.

Other than working out, Harris has been busy releasing new music. Last week, he dropped his new music video for his hit song “This Is What You Came For” featuring Rihanna. Harris just revealed that he’s planning to release a new song with Dizzee Rascal this coming Friday.
He’s also been back to work at his ongoing Las Vegas residency and partying the past few weekends with both fans and his close group of friends. Calvin was spotted at the Electric Daisy Carnival last weekend and having dinner with Frank Ocean in Malibu earlier this month. It looks like Calvin is more focused on his squad and his work while Taylor makes plenty of time for Tom.
