Calvin Harris‘ newly announced forthcoming album Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 will feature a crazy amount of mainstream artists including Future, Travis Scott, Frank Ocean, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj and more — but his expected collab with Katy Perry is the one raising eyebrows!


There has been plenty of “Bad Blood” between her and the producer’s superstar ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift over the years. After much speculation, Swift called Perry out for being a “mean girl” in an interview with Rolling Stone.

“For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. She would come up to me at awards and say something and walk away, and I would think, Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?” said Swift.

Swift also accused Perry of swiping some of her dancers out from under her, nearly sabotaging a world tour. The pop-star-on-pop-star feud is so obvious that when Harris and Swift were conflicting over her credits on his smash hit “This Is What You Came For” ft. Rihanna, he even threw Perry’s name in the mix…

Hurtful to me at this point that her and her team would go so far out of their way to try and make ME look bad at this stage though

I figure if you’re happy in your new relationship you should focus on that instead of trying to tear your ex bf down for something to do

I know you’re off tour and you need someone new to try and bury like Katy ETC but I’m not that guy, sorry. I won’t allow it

Ouch.

Kinda makes us wonder if he really digs Katy Perry as an artist, or if this collaboration is just one big “F U” to Taylor Swift. Either way, it will probably sound great!
