Instant Follow Friday: Swooning Over Taylor Swift’s New Man, Calvin Harris

Yes, Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris Are Officially Dating
Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are officially a couple.

Calvin Harris: boyishly handsome and massively successful DJ, modern day Greek god, Taylor Swift’s new man, and the subject of this week’s Instant Follow Friday.

His Instagram is chock full of nights, parties, and people to remember, which gets us thinking: how did Taylor Swift, 25, manage to snag another dude so…well, cool?

The 31-year-old makes amazing music appropriate to play all day and all night long, and has a deep, sensuous voice like velvet (we wanna meet you in the summer, mister).

Not to mention Harris is an Armani Exchange underwear model and has an absurd number of photos on his Instagram with exotic animals (panda, koala, black bear, fox, owls – two of them). *Swoon*.

The key to our hearts being animals notwithstanding, Calvin Harris is a hottie with a body (hellooo, abs) and he knows it. He’s basically a better version of fellow DJ Diplo (and one need not try very hard), who his new lady pal Swift had a strange feud with earlier this year. Though admittedly both Diplo and Harris put out great music.

Harris and Swift haven’t been linked for very long; it was only yesterday that they were allegedly confirmed dating. And the pairing is a tad surprising. Harris’s image is totally different from Swift’s, and even he didn’t think he’d be interested in Swift back in November 2014 when he was asked whether or not he’d “swipe right.”

He had explained she was “the opposite of my type” and would “swipe left.” Ouch.

So who was the Scot linked to before Swift stole his heart? Well for one, this time last year Harris was dating another pop superstar: Rita Ora. They dated for about a year and had worked on her single “I Will Never Let You Down” together.

Afterwards, he dated the model who starred in his music video for “Blame” (feat. John Newman), Aarika Wolf. They dated several months and early March, it was revealed they had split around the time of the 2015 Brit Awards in February. That leaves a little window for the magic between him and Swift to happen.

Was it her dancing that caught his eye (well, definitely it caught his eye) and made him fall head over heels? Arguably no, so it must have been her raw musical talent and headstrong anti-music streaming service belief.

In this case, hopefully their union also has something to do with a musical collaboration, as it was with his past lovers. Harris and Swift truly could be a match made in musical heaven, if it were to work out.
