The ex-boyfriend of the singer seemed uninterested when Taylor's new video was showcased at the VMAs on Sunday
There is no doubt Taylor Swift is back but it seems not everyone is happy about it. The superstar singer unveiled the video to her latest song, Look What You Made Me Do, at the VMAs last night (Sun 27) but there was one person in the audience who seemed unimpressed: Taylor’s former boyfriend, Calvin Harris.
Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift have a complicated back story
As Swifty’s explosive new video hit the screens, all cameras were trained on the Scottish DJ who appeared to ignore the video and then decide not to clap at all after it had been completed in its entirety.

Another sensational Sunday evening from the VMAs.
The 2017 MTV VMAs rocked up this weekend with a number of special surprises, a big political agenda and a big win for Kendrick Lamar. There were some seriously spectacular performances, a few tear-jerking moments, but most of all it was an event of solidarity between everyone involved.
Kendrick Lamar wins big at the 2017 MTV VMAs
Kendrick Lamar was the big winner of the evening, with the video for his hit single 'Humble' (taken from this year's 'Damn' album) landing him Video of the Year as well as Best Hip Hop, Best Art Direction, Best Direction and Best Visual Effects.
She is not messing about with her new single from her upcoming album.
If you thought 'Bad Blood' was dark, Taylor Swift has just upped the ante with an even more deadly new single entitled 'Look What You Made Me Do' which is basically a veiled smackdown of Kanye West. It's also the first track from her long-awaited forthcoming album.

The 27-year-old proves she's not taking any more trash from anyone with 'Look What You Made Me Do'; a super sultry, drum heavy number which truly shows her transformation. To put it in her words: 'the old Taylor can't come to the phone right now/ Why?/ Oh 'cause she's dead!' It's the first single she's released since last year's 'I Don't Wanna Live Forever' with Zayn, which was recorded for the film 'Fifty Shades Darker'.

Perry explained to Ryan Seacrest how she'd put her feud with Calvin Harris to rest earlier this year.
32 year old Perry, the host of the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards, spoke about her various “falling outs” with Scottish producer Harris from about eight years ago when she had been beefing with his now-ex-girlfriend, Taylor Swift.
“We’d had little falling outs here and there. We’d had some public Twitter spats… Eight years or so had passed. It was time to put all that behind us,” she told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show on Wednesday (August 23rd).

'Reputation', Swift's sixth studio album, will be released on November 10th - with its first single available on Thursday!
Following her mysterious social media blackout that triggered mounting speculation, Taylor Swift has indeed confirmed the news her legions have fans have been waiting for – her new album, titled Reputation, will be released later this year on November 10th.
The 27 year old singer revealed via her Instagram account on Wednesday (August 23rd) that her sixth studio record will be released in a matter of months. Even better, the album’s first single will be released tomorrow evening (Thursday 24th), although the title of the song is not yet confirmed.
Appearing on her Instagram, the cover features a black-and-white photo of Swift in a shirt and with wet hair while standing in front a backdrop of fake newspaper headlines and articles, all containing just two words – 'Taylor Swift'.

Is this a clue that new music is on the way?
Taylor Swift fans everywhere are going crazy over speculation that she might finally have some new music on the way. The clues are that she's removed all her images and posts off social media and replaced them with a very strange video indeed. New single? Or just a fresh start?
Taylor Swift at the CMA Awards
Just why did the 27-year-old popstar wipe away her social media presence on Friday (August 18th 2017)? No posts remain visible to the public on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Tumblr - not even an identifying profile picture. She hasn't removed her handle altogether, however, and she has since left one post.
The undisclosed donation comes shortly after Swift prevailed in the groping court case against former DJ David Mueller.
Taylor Swift has delivered on her promise to donate money to help sexual assault survivors in the wake of the groping court case she won earlier this week, making what is described as a “generous” donation to Mariska Hargitay’s Joyful Heart Foundation.
The 27 year old pop megastar contributed an undisclosed amount of financial aid to the foundation, set up in 2004 by Mariska Hargitay, a ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’ actress and a close friend of Swift’s.
“Taylor is aware of the Joyful Heart Foundation and follows our work,” Joyful Heart Foundation’s CEO Maile M. Zambuto told The Huffington Post on Thursday (August 17th). “Her team got in touch with me and we talked a lot about her commitment, all along throughout this ordeal, to wanting to be of service to survivors.”
Calvin Harris has teamed up with pop royalty for his brand new album 'Funk Wave Bounces Vol 1', which lands on June 30.
Calvin Harris has been confirmed to perform at Rihanna's third Diamnond Ball alongside Kendrick Lamar.
The superstar DJ - who collaborated with the Bejan beauty on hits 'This Is What You Came For' and 'We Found Love' - has signed up to the charity fundraiser taking place at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City on September 14 in aid of the Clara Lionel Foundation.
Rihanna said in a statement: ''I'm ecstatic to add my longtime collaborator and friend Calvin Harris to the stellar line-up at this year's Diamond Ball. Calvin's music will bring the perfect mix of energy and excitement to the evening as we celebrate the Clara Lionel Foundation.''

Swift took to the stand on Thursday in court in Denver, Colorado to be cross-examined by David Mueller's attorney.
Taylor Swift has been widely praised for her testimony in court this week concerning allegations of sexual assault, with celebrities and publications noting how she dealt with being put on the stand in the civil trial in the court battle with ex-DJ David Mueller.
The 27 year old pop star launched a counter-suit in late 2015 after former country music DJ David Mueller sued her for claiming she fabricated allegations that he groped her backside during a photo op in 2013, which he says caused him to lose his $150k-per-year job at Denver-based KYGO-FM.
Testifying on Thursday (August 10th), Swift gave no grounds to Mueller’s lawyers whatsoever, according to reports from Billboard and multiple outlets.

The civil trial to resolve the 2015 suit and counter-suit between Swift and former DJ David Mueller, began in Colorado on Tuesday.
A former radio DJ who was sacked when he was accused of groping Taylor Swift before a concert has testified in court today, claiming that he may have touched the pop star’s ribs with a closed hand when he tried to jump into a photo with her, but insisted that he did not touch her backside as Swift had claimed.
27 year old Swift accuses former disc jockey David Mueller of slipping his hand up her dress as they posed at a photo op backstage at one of her concerts back in June 2013 at Denver’s Pepsi Center. Her legal representative claimed in an opening statement at a civil trial in Denver, Colorado on Tuesday (August 8th) that Mueller had “grabbed her rear end”, according to local reports.
Mr Mueller sued the singer in September 2015, calling her allegation false and that she had cost him his $150k-per-year job as a host at country music station KYGO-FM. He is seeking $3 million in damages.
Swifty and Scottish DJ Harris dated from March 2015 to June 2016
It was one of the biggest showbiz get togethers that was followed by millions of fans alike when Swifty and Calvin became a couple. The pair frolicked on inflatable swans, cooked, looked after Taylor’s cats and hung out in impossibly cute places looking impossibly adorable. But then the dream was over and the claws came out.
Taylor and Calvin's relationship ended acrimoniously
The pair split after just over a year together in June 2016 and mere weeks later Swifty was caught snogging British actor, Tom Hiddleston, before the social media backbiting began.
Swift ended her boycott of streaming services two weeks ago, and has made close to $400,000 since.
Most people would have thought that Taylor Swift’s return to Spotify was done just to troll her nemesis Katy Perry, but it actually seems to have been a savvy business move as well.
A new report indicates that the 27 year old pop star has earned just under $400,000 in the space of just a fortnight since her back catalogue came back to streaming services such as Spotify, Amazon Music and Pandora two weeks ago.
Much was made of the fact that Swift made the sudden decision to end her boycott of streaming services on the eve of her rival Katy Perry releasing her new record Witness on June 9th, but Billboard now claims that the two weeks since have seen TayTay earn $285,000 (£224,000) in streaming revenue and $59,000 (£46,000) in publishing royalties.

She had told The Guardian that being pals with TayTay was like being around someone with "very specific allergies".
The 20 year old New Zealand-born singer, who has just released her second album Melodrama, made the rather strange remark in a profile interview with The Guardian at the weekend. Quickly, she received a backlash from Swift’s fanbase who criticised her for the comments that Lorde now admits were “insensitive” – but she said that she hadn’t been addressing Swift directly.
“It's like having a friend with very specific allergies,” she had told the British newspaper in an article published on Saturday (June 17th).

Jack Antonoff hears a ''female voice'' in his head when he writes music.
The 33-year-old singer and songwriter - who is currently dating Lena Dunham - has admitted whenever he sits down to pen a anew track he will hear women play back the song in his head,.
The Bleachers frontman told the Metro newspaper: ''I grew up with only sisters and wen i write, I very much hear things in a female voice. Not to generalise but females are more honest and transparent. There's just a connection there.''

Swift's back catalogue had been suspended from streaming services back in late 2014.
Taylor Swift has decided to end her long-standing boycott of streaming services, announcing that her back catalogue of albums will return to services such as Spotify.
Swift made the decision to pull her entire discography from streaming services back in late 2014, citing the deleterious effect she felt that the streaming model was having on the music industry. However, her reversal comes reportedly as a thank-you to her fans after her most recent album 1989 passed the 10 million sales mark.
“In celebration of 1989 selling over 10 Million Albums Worldwide and the RIAA's 100 Million Song Certification announcement, Taylor wants to thank her fans by making her entire back catalog available to all streaming services tonight at midnight,” a Taylor Swift fan Instagram page announced on Thursday night (June 8th).
The singer has been friends with Swifty for a number of years
Ed Sheeran has lifted the lid on his friendship with songstress Taylor Swift and revealed that neither of them were the popular kids at school. The star - who currently holds the number one and two spots in the charts - said that now they are the popular kids, they have "taken it too far".

This is how the pair began their collaboration for 'Fifty Shades Darker'.
Zayn Malik has opened up about collaborating with his girlfriend's pal Taylor Swift on the new single 'I Don't Wanna Live Forever' from the soundtrack to 'Fifty Shades Darker', revealing that the popstar was eager to get on board after hearing the unfinished version.

It wasn't exactly difficult for Zayn to bring Taylor on board given that his supermodel girlfriend Gigi Hadid is a part of the 'Bad Blood' singer's squad (alongside the movie's star Dakota Johnson), but it seems she was more than enthusiastic about the project when the producer and Grammy-winning songwriter Jack Antonoff played her the semi-completed product.
He's not impressed with the singer owning up about Nils Sjöberg.
It's confirmed: Taylor Swift DID co-wrote the new Calvin Harris track 'This Is What You Came For' under the pseudonym Nils Sjöberg. Her team have just settled that bit of gossip, but Calvin is definitely not happy about it and has accused her of deliberately trying to make him look bad.
Taylor Swift DID help write 'This Is What You Came For'
Calvin released the single 'This Is What You Came For' featuring Rihanna earlier this year, while he was still dating Taylor, as part of his upcoming album project. Rumours arose recently that Taylor helped out on the track under a Scandinavian nom de plume, but Calvin has launched a scathing attack on Twitter amid a few backhanded compliments over the singer deciding to come clean about it all.
'25' sold more than Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber and Sam Smith put together in 2015 - despite only being on sale for the last five weeks of the year!
Confirming what we essentially already knew, Adele’s global domination is total, with the news that her latest album 25 outsold the rest of the top five bestsellers around the world put together in 2015.
The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI), a global body representing the music industry, reports that her long-awaited third album sold 17.4 million units in 2015, despite only coming out in late November. As a result, the organisation concludes that Adele has helped to reverse “two decades of almost uninterrupted decline” in the music business.

No one wants their old MySpace page dug up, not even Taylor Swift.
Taylor Swift’s alleged old MySpace page is doing the rounds again, seemingly showing the days before the singer had such a carefully crafted image. The posts, which are dated around 2005 and 2006, include some cringe-worthy photographs and a few f-bombs in the comments section.
Taylor Swift’s alleged old Myspace page has resurfaced.
In one comment Taylor reportedly writes: "Just a little reminder to you that, even though the semester may be over… I'm still quite obsessed with you. haha f**k sewing machines” (via The Mirror). In another she accuses her friends of posting ‘fugly’ pictures of her.

Going to Kesha's rescue has sealed it for us.
With everything from the Grammys to Kesha's court case hitting headlines, we've really been reminded of how much we love Taylor Swift. She's had her critics, who shame her for singing about her break-ups and for perhaps not being an intellectual, but none of that takes away from the fact that she's one of the coolest (and nicest!) popstars out there.

Looks like KanTay have broken friends again...
What is going on between Kanye West and Taylor Swift? We thought the pair had become buds since the notorious 2009 VMA incident, laughing off what had happened and even talking of working together. But now West has shaken things up again with a new song featuring explicit lyrics about her.
Kanye West says Swift is cool with his 'Famous' lyrics
While the rapper claims that he'd asked Swift's approval of the song and she gave him the go ahead, her rep has denied that any such conversation took place. And, let's be honest, it does seem unlikely that Swift would green light such a controversial song given her strong stance on feminism.
Perry's Prismatic world tour constituted the bulk of her earnings, which were just under $88 million in the 12-month period measured.
Katy Perry has edged out her fierce rival Taylor Swift to be named as the highest-earning female musician of 2015, with estimated income of $88 million in a 12-month period, according to the annual article by Forbes.
Perry’s Prismatic world tour accounted for the substantial part of her earnings, as she took approximately $1.3 million on every stop on the massive haul. Sponsorship deals tied in with the tour also added to this number, with deals with cosmetics brand Covergirl and fashion accessories company Claire’s as well as her fragrances released in conjunction with Coty.

Singer Jesse Braham argues that the lyrics to his song 'Haters Gone Hate' are substantively similar to the chorus of Swift's track 'Shake It Off'.
Taylor Swift is being sued for copyright infringement by a struggling musician, who claims that the superstar ripped off one of his songs for the lyrics of her mega-hit ‘Shake It Off’.
American R&B singer Jesse Braham alleges that Swift uses substantially the same 22-word phrase she uses in the chorus for her former Number 1 single ‘Shake It Off’ as he did for his 2013 song ‘Haters Gone Hate’. According to legal papers, Braham is claiming copyright infringement of the phrases “haters gone hate” and “playas gone play”, which also appear in Swift’s song.

The chart star has launched a lawsuit of her own after a former radio DJ said she falsely accused him of inappropriately touching her.
Taylor Swift has launched a lawsuit of her own in retaliation against the Denver radio DJ who sued her, after he claimed lost his job when she falsely claimed that he had groped her.
Former radio host David Mueller opened a lawsuit in a US district court in Denver in September this year, saying that he was falsely accused by a member of Swift’s security team of grabbing the singer’s buttocks during a photo meet-and-greet session backstage at the Pepsi Center in the city on June 2nd 2013.

'1989' has become just the fifth album in chart history to spend a whole year inside the U.S. Billboard Top Ten.
As if to illustrate perfectly the mega-stardom that Taylor Swift has enjoyed over the last 12 months, her smash hit album 1989 has become just the fifth record in history to spend an entire year inside the U.S. Top Ten.
Released on October 27th 2014, Swift’s fifth full-length album rocketed straight to Number 1 on its first week of release, selling an incredible 1.29 million copies in the process. Since then, it has enjoyed huge longevity and popularity, and becomes one of a very select few records to spend 52 consecutive weeks in the highest echelons of the Billboard Top 200.

Taylor Swift met 6-year-old Taylor Rayburn at her concert in Atlanta.
Yes, Taylor Swift has done it again. The 25-year-old ‘Shake It Off’ singer has taken the next step on the ladder to sainthood. There’s not a week goes by when we don’t hear of Swift’s generosity in giving to those less fortunate in health or wealth. She doesn’t quite have miraculous healing powers (not just yet anyway) but, earlier this week, Swift certainly put a smile on the face of a 6-year-old girl battling cancer.

The singer recently re-recorded Swift’s entire ‘1989’ album.
Ryan Adams has compared Taylor Swift to Shakespeare while describing the process of covering her 1989 album. Speaking to The Guardian, Adams opened up about his feelings towards Swift's music and revealed he’s actually been a fan of the singer for years.
Ryan Adams released his cover of Taylor Swift’s 1989 album last month.
Adams compared the process of working through Swift’s 1989 album to “being in Ghostbusters or something, and then all of a sudden I have to go do Shakespeare”. He went on to later defend Swift as one of the great modern songwriters adding, “Well, look, those songs are popular for a reason. She’s a popular artist for a reason.”
