Calvin Harris can’t accept an award without someone making a Taylor Swift joke, apparently. When the DJ accepted the Future Icon Award at Caesar’s Palace anniversary gala Saturday night (August 6), host and comedian Howie Mandel made a Tay pun that’s Corny with a capital C.
“That’s a nice suit,” Mandel told Harris onstage. “Who’s your Taylor?” Ba dum tss!
Harris had the perfect response: “You got that prepared. You had that one ready.” He’s right. How long do you think Mandel had been waiting to crack that joke?
Then, in a move that would surely make Taylor proud, Harris changed the conversation to more important things, like his award. That was the reason he was onstage, after all.
“It’s an honor to be here,” he said. “I don’t do this thing that often. I don’t receive these kind of awards very often either. It’s a great honor to be here.”
