Update: Katy Perry seems to have stepped into the ring to offer her opinion on Calvin Harris' allegations about Taylor Swift's sneaky intentions. On Wednesday afternoon, Harris said Swift's latest move — coming clean about having written "This Is What You Came For" — was really motivated by the singer's need for "someone new to try and bury like Katy ETC." Perry's response said more than her words ever could (or have in the past, especially given how poorly conceived her Twitter response to Swift was last time).

Calvin Harris didn't wake up this morning to be a pawn in any more of Taylor Swift's headline-grabbing games. In a series of messages posted to Twitter Wednesday afternoon, Harris responded to reports that Swift actually wrote his hit single "This Is What You Came For." After People reported that Swift wrote the track under the pseudonym Nils Sjoberg, Harris issued his official response: Isn't she busy selling the summer's steamiest fake romance? Swift's representatives confirmed to People that "This Is What You Came For" was supposed to be a secret collaboration between the couple. Online, Harris confirmed that Swift indeed wrote the track (and even contributed some vocals), but claimed that leaking her songwriting credit was a last-ditch about-face to make him look bad.
