Yesterday it was being reported that Calvin Harris had pulled out his emotions journal and written a song slapping back at Taylor Swift for maybe-cheating on him with Tom Hiddleston. I guess Calvin Harris really wanted to be the Taylor Swift of this bland love triangle. Calvin released said song, “Olé“, earlier today on iTunes (which you can listen to here). As it turns out, it might not be the epic clap-back people thought it was.
A Taylor Swift source, which may or may not be one of Taylor Swift’s cats doing some damage control for their human while she’s off living that photo op life, tells UsWeekly that there’s no way it’s about Tom Hiddleston. Originally the rumor was that “Olé” was sung from Tom’s perspective. But the source says that’s just an assumption, and that people are only doing that to “get attention for a song.” Getting attention for a song by letting people assume it’s about someone specific? Taylor would know nothing about that.
However, this might not be a case of Taylor sticking her fingers in her ears and going “Lalalala that song isn’t about me.” A source from Calvin’s side confirms that “Olé” was recorded by John Newman months ago. Okay, but how many months? Two months?
If “Olé” didn’t open with the words “Low-key“, maybe it might not have been so obvious. Without that maybe-reference to Loki, it’s pretty much just a song about some girl who is sneaking around on her boyfriend. So maybe it isn’t actually about Taylor Swift? I guess we’ll just have to wait for the music video. “Sources” can deny it’s about Taylor and Tom all they want. But if that music video features two people in matching navy jackets posing hard for the cameras, then Calvin is so busted.
Speaking of matching, here’s Land’s End Barbie and Ken arriving in Gold Coast, Australia today. They’re supposedly there so Tom can start filming Thor: Ragnarok. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before they’re “caught” doing something totally subtle, like riding hand-in-hand down the beach on the back of a kangaroo or something.
