Calvin Harris Breaks His Silence On Breakup With Taylor Swift

Scottish DJ Calvin Harris didn't wait long before he spoke out about the end of his relationship with Taylor Swift.

The news broke yesterday and spawned a ton of irresponsible speculation. Both Swift and Harris have reputations as not being...amazing to break up with.

So what would the DJ say?

Would he slam Swift?

Would he make a joke about her new album's release date?

Would he drop a new track with Rihanna dissing Swift?

Um, none of the above.

That's incredibly mature. We hope that this leads to a Taylor Swift album of measured respect for her ex-lover. Even though that might be incredibly boring. But this is great. This is a much hipper version of conscious uncoupling. Hell, Swift even retweeted Harris' breakup tweet. That's beyond amicable.

Next up, Swift launches a lifestyle website and Calvin Harris starts fronting Coldplay.
