Swifties, we have an extremely significant issue to discuss involving the world’s current most beautiful couple, Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris. Ever since they debuted their picture-perfect coupledom, we’ve been caught up in their every move — the award show PDA, the giant swan floats, the boat dates...
But in a revelation that might disappoint some Tayvin fan fic authors, it appears we may be a little misguided about what their relationship is really like from the inside. At least, that’s the implication Selena Gomez just gave us.
Let’s back up a bit. In a new interview with New Zealand radio’s “The Edge Afternoons,” Selena was asked about her once-rumored boyfriend, Zedd. The “Good For You” singer took the opportunity to clear up rumors that their relationship was a publicity stunt, as Diplo insinuated last month.
“He said that was a joke,” Selena insisted, saying she spoke to Diplo about his comments. “I talked to him. He said it was a joke. It’s very interesting that Diplo would think he knew about my personal life, but he doesn’t.”
“I adore Anton a lot and I definitely had a thing with him, which was nice,” she added.
One of the radio hosts then asked Selena if Zedd would be embarrassed that she refers to him by his real name, Anton.
“I don’t know, maybe!” she admitted. “But I made this a deal. I said it to Calvin Harris too. I was like, ‘Look, you guys have two names. It really is frustrating. I need to know which name I should call you because I don’t know what is what. So I speak with the real names. Adam and Anton.”
The radio hosts were flabbergasted that Calvin Harris isn’t the Scottish DJ’s real name, and they asked Selena if they call him “Adam Harris.”
“No, I don’t think that’s his last name!” Selena said. “I don't know his last name.”
So. What we have here are a couple important revelations, but let’s clear the air first: Calvin Harris’ real name is, in fact, Adam Richard Wiles. The fact that Selena doesn’t know his real last name is a little disconcerting considering how close she and Taylor are, but that’s OK; it’s still a pretty new relationship.
The most important takeaway from Selena’s answer is that, because she calls Calvin “Adam,” Taylor probably does, too. And that means you will have to adjust your fan fiction and fan art accordingly as you muse about the sweet nothings Taylor and Calvin whisper to each other on the phone.
Also, does this mean we should re-dub their couple name “Taydam?” Or maybe “Tay-DAMN?!” Please let us know your thoughts in the comments.
