Taylor Swift has a long list of ex-boyfriends, and it looks like they're all coming out against her. Just a day after John Mayer allegedly dissed the songstress on her 27th birthday, Calvin Harris has allegedly dissed her on Instagram.
According to Hollywood Life, Calvin Harris could have possibly shaded the singer-songwriter on social media. The DJ took to Instagram on Wednesday, Dec. 14, to post a graphic about his Spotify streaming stats for the year 2016.
"In 2016, 83.9 million Spotify listeners streamed 10,089 years of Calvin Harris," the post read. In the caption, he wrote, "2017 I'm going for 20,000 years thank you for your support."Swift notoriously pulled her music from Spotify in November 2014. She also penned an op-ed article she wrote for The Wall Street Journal explaining why she decided to leave her music catalog from the popular streaming service.
"Music is changing so quickly, and the landscape of the music industry itself is changing so quickly, that everything new, like Spotify, all feels to me a bit like a grand experiment," the singer wrote.
Fans were upset that they couldn't listen to Swift's music on the streaming service. It hasn't stopped some from calling her "greedy." Swift has since switched over to Apple Music after posting an open letter to Apple on her Tumblr blog, explaining why she didn't make her latest album, 1989, available on the new streaming service, Apple Music. Her issue was about Apple's decision to not pay its musicians, labels, or producers any royalties during Apple Music's three-month free trial, reports Stereogum.
"This is not about me. Thankfully I am on my fifth album and can support myself, my band, crew, and entire management team by playing live shows. This is about the new artist or band that has just released their first single and will not be paid for its success. This is about the young songwriter who just got his or her first cut and thought that the royalties from that would get them out of debt. This is about the producer who works tirelessly to innovate and create, just like the innovators and creators at Apple are pioneering in their field…but will not get paid for a quarter of a year's worth of plays on his or her songs."So, what does Calvin Harris' Instagram post have to do with Taylor Swift? Since Swift is team Apple Music these days, it's clear that Harris is staying loyal to Spotify. While Harris has defended Swift in the past when other musicians criticized her for her actions, it looks like he has changed his mind about music and streaming services.
This comes after Swift's other ex-boyfriend John Mayer allegedly dissed the singer on Twitter, reports Us Weekly. On Tuesday, Dec. 13 – which also happens to be Swift's birthday – he tweeted that the date is the "lamest day of the year."
The musician caught heat with Swift's fans when he posted the original tweet, "Tuesday, December 13 may be the lamest day of the year, conceptually," but later deleted the tweet.
"NOPE. No. Nuh-uh," Mayer wrote after Swift's fans came for him for the tweet.
"People I am 39. I am deleting those tweets. Come right at me for doing so. Absolutely no shade."He also added a heart emoji at the end of his message to prove that he has no bad blood with the singer.
That hasn't stopped Swift's fans from attacking Mayer with tweets and messages. On Wednesday, Dec. 14, he took to Twitter with another message, "Looks like I shouldn't have deleted this tweet…"
Mayer and Swift dated back in 2009, but then things took a dark turn. Swift released the track "Dear John" that was rumored to be directed at the singer-songwriter. Years later, Mayer released his response to her song in the track "Paper Dolls."
