Original story: Well, this is getting intense. After claims that Taylor Swift was actually the one to pen (opens in new tab) "This Is What You Came For"—that catchy summer tune by Calvin Harris and Rihanna—Harris just went on a clarification rant on Twitter, sending a few select tweets directed right at Swift that address, uh, some broader issues.

So what we know now:
1. Calvin Harris is *not* happy with the idea that the mastermind behind his song was Taylor Swift. (Even if she did actually write the lyrics ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.)
2. He feels she's behind the news, in an attempt to "bury him."
3. There might be some credence to the theory that "Bad Blood" was about Katy Perry...?
4. If Taylor responds to all this, we're willing to bet it's going to be clever, cheeky, and in the form of a Tom Hiddleston tank top.
