Guess it was only a matter of time until Calvin Harris weighed back in on Taylor Swift, right? Especially given yesterday’s rumored split with her also recently-new boyfriend Tom Hiddleston, now is a fitting time for the EDM producer to speak on his recent ex. Last time we heard from him on the matter he was ranting on Twitter about Taylor’s camp trying to “trash” him and revealed that Taylor had helped write his smash hit with Rihanna “This Is What You Came For.” Juicy!

Now, in a new interview for British GQ — for their Men of the Year feature no less — he seems to be regretting his outburst a bit.

“The aftermath of the relationship was way more heavily publicized than the relationship itself. When we were together, we were very careful for it not to be a media circus. She respected my feelings in that sense. I’m not good at being a celebrity. But when it ended, all hell broke loose. Now I see that Twitter thing as a result of me succumbing to pressure. It took me a minute to realize that none of that matters. I’m a positive guy. For both of us it was the wrong situation. It clearly wasn’t right, so it ended, but all of the stuff that happened afterwards…”

Honestly, who hasn’t been there during a breakup? Congrats to Calvin on his Solo Artist of the Year distinction from British GQ. He seems thrilled with the piece, which features him on the cover:
