Taylor Swift is SO grateful that Calvin Harris stood up for her against Zayn Malik, and she’s going to prove it to him in the best way she knows how — with a romantic love song!
Calvin Harris, 31, is TOTALLY Taylor Swift’s knight in shining armor! The “Bad Blood” singer has been working hard to write the ultimate love song for her man, and she finally got the inspiration she needed when he slammed Zayn Malik, 22, on Twitter in her defense, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned.
“Taylor wants to do something special for Calvin to show him how appreciative she is,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She’s been working on a love song for Calvin but couldn’t finish it. His heroics might have been just the inspiration she needed!”
It’s SO amazing to see Taylor in such a stable, mature relationship, and she is SO beyond grateful that the EDM producer went out of his way to defend her. “She’s incredibly touched that Clavin stuck his neck out there for her,” our insider adds. “He did it all on his own without Taylor saying anything. He knew the whole Spotify controversy is a real sensitive issue with her, and didn’t like Zayn stirring the pot. It’s made her fall more in love with him. She’s never had this kind of love and support in a relationship before.”
The battle between Calvin and Zayn started when Zayn retweeted a Twitter message calling Taylor out for not putting her music on Spotify. The tweet compared the 25-year-old’s decision to that of Miley Cyrus, who recently said she wanted to release her next album for free. “The difference is astounding,” the comparison tweet read.
But Calvin was NOT going to let the former One Direction boy bander get away with dissing his lady. “You’ve made your money? Cool…f*** the 99% of musicians who depend on these services to survive right? Yeah f*** em,” he wrote, before spewing into a long rant in defense of Taylor. But Zayn was quick to fire back. “ha you just made an absolute fool of yourself mate,” he wrote. “you clearly didn’t understand what I just said either. so I suggest you calm your knickers before them dentures fall out. Oh and I write my own s**t too d**khead.”
Oh man, this one definitely got pretty out of hand — but we can’t WAIT to hear the new music Taylor’s writing about it! Tell us, HollywoodLifers: What do you think of Calvin defending Taylor? Are you excited to hear her song for him?!
