Calvin Harris supposedly felt uncomfortable with the prospect of his rumoured girlfriend Taylor Swift penning a tune about their romance.

The 25-year-old I Knew You Were Trouble singer and the 31-year-old Scottish music producer and DJ are rumoured to be dating each other.

Taylor is infamous for penning tunes about her romantic affairs, but apparently Calvin is completely uncomfortable with the prospect of their romance being memorialised in one of her future songs.

“It was the white elephant in the room, but it’s been on his mind, so he confronted her about it last week, telling her he doesn’t want her to do that to him,” a source told America’s OK! magazine. “[Calvin] doesn’t want to join the ranks of Swift refugee boyfriends who’ve been humiliated by one of her revenge songs.”

Taylor has dated numerous Hollywood heartthrobs in the past, including Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer and One Direction singer Harry Styles.

It’s claimed Calvin isn’t just concerned with his reputation; the DJ purportedly believes Taylor “demeans herself” by writing songs about her exes.

“He thinks she’s an incredible musician who should use her intellect and channel positive energy into her songwriting, versus mundane lyrics about boys,” the insider said.

Taylor slammed the media’s obsession with the source of inspiration for her songs as “sexist” during a previous interview with Australian radio station 2DayFM.

She also insisted her songwriting process is completely devoid of spite towards her exes.

“I’ve never thought about songwriting as a weapon,” Taylor explained to Vanity Fair previously. “I’ve only thought about it as a way to help me get through love and loss and sadness and loneliness and growing up.”
