Calvin Harris Responds To Rita Ora ‘Teen Choice Awards’ Drama

Published: Wednesday 13th Aug 2014 by Sam

Calvin Harris is renown for his quietness. However, the hitmaker is refusing to stay silent regarding comments made by ex-girlfriend Rita Ora.

As widely reported over the weekend, the singer’s performance of ‘I Will Never Let You Down’ at the Teen Choice Awards was abrupt axed – with multiple sources stating that it was Harris (who produced the song) who exercised his right to block the performance.

23-year-old Ora confirmed the story as true during a recent interview with Ryan Seacrest. The result? Intense debate among the public about the right and wrongness  of her words and his actions.

It would appear all the hoopla has made for Harris to speak up and out to offer his take on the matter.

See what he had to say below…

Writing on Twitter today, he said:

      How do you know she sucks d**** for hits? Do you know her personally or just talking about what you hear in the media from hurt dudes she broke up with? Why are you so concerned about where her co-ochies been?

  2. CT August 13, 2014

    Bye rita! You done boo…

    • FAF August 13, 2014

      The single has already gone #1 in UK, though
      lmao that dated EDM mess wouldn’t have been successful in the US anyway

      • Memo August 13, 2014

        Now you reject her biggest hit, the reach!

  3. CATFISH CAREY August 13, 2014


  4. Beysus August 13, 2014

    Uh Oh… She should have performed something else like Black Widow 🙁

  5. Lana Tropicana August 13, 2014

    Yes Calvin! Just as I thought. Rita better mind he doesn’t expose her.

  6. BeySting August 13, 2014

    That’s what she gets for trying to make him look like the bad guy.

    • Fine Ass Lou August 13, 2014

      But he is the bad guy though. Now people in the industry are going to see him for the pettiness. That’s not how you do business period. Only a fool wouldn’t allow her to perform it especially when it’s a hit with his name on it. Ppl won’t want to work with someone like that

  7. Yea ok August 13, 2014

    Sam and company y’all can officially hang it up. It won’t happen for Rita here. Y’all think u can manipulate US readers and consumers with all your fluff. We see right through it and her. It is no coincidence all her ex have negative things to say about her. I said that something bad must have happened and look at what we have here. Calvin will always get my support. Bye Rita. If Rita is smart she will stop talking abojt this before she really gets exposed.

    • former rihanna stan August 13, 2014

      She is already happening in the USA. WE talk more about her than Ciara and and Brandy.

  8. Mark111 August 13, 2014

    Exposed! Hahahaha, Rob Fatdasian tried to tell us. Whora must have some whack good good. What she gonna do RitaTHOTs?

    • Childers August 13, 2014

      You’re a bottom, aren’t you Mark?

  9. CherylSoldierr August 13, 2014

    But this still makes him look really bitter. I wouldn’t want to work with him if I knew there was a chance he’d pull this sh!t. It’s not like rita is at Rihanna’s level where she can pay a performance like this dust. He’s thirty. He needs to grow up because I’m sure he’s cheated in the past

    • janet1814 August 13, 2014

      I don’t think that would worry most artists, as they’re not f**king for tracks like Rita…

    • Diamond Princess August 13, 2014

      I wouldn’t wanna work with him either! Like I said this stunt he pulled might make artists weary of him and wanting more control over their songs. If he can do that it won’t be long before all hurt dogs like him start pulling songs from artists because the artist hurt their little feelings!

  10. teee August 13, 2014

    Rita is a sl** but regardless of that Calvin looks very childish.

    • CherylSoldierr August 13, 2014

      Like what’s a “very good reason?” You cheated on me so I’m gonna try to ruin your career? Lmao

      • ~The Arcade~ August 13, 2014

        I see you always trying to defend her, she obviously has several flaws for people to always come for her neck, the way they do. Bottom line is she needs to close those legs, start WRITING AND PRODUCING her own materials to avoid stuff like this happening. Point blank!!

      • CherylSoldierr August 13, 2014

        Duh, but Calvin is looking like a bitter queen while rita is just using it for promo and paying the relationship dust.

      • janet1814 August 13, 2014

        Maybe she gave him an s** after cheating when they were supposed to be exclusive. Maybe she didn’t just cheat with a random but one of his closest friends. The fact is no one here knows what happened but she looks messy.

      • ~The Arcade~ August 13, 2014

        @janet1814 She sure does. smh

  11. Lindsay Lohan August 13, 2014

    I guess Calvin Harris is really mad.

  12. Stephy August 13, 2014

    Po’Thang, Calvin Harris is clocking her lil Oral S** whoring ass Tea.

  13. CherylSoldierr August 13, 2014

    Calvin is clockin her, but rita is promoting the hell out of this. She’s paying their relationship dust while Calvin stays bitter.

    • janet1814 August 13, 2014

      But he stays making hits while she can’t get her career off the ground…

  14. 2 girls 1 cup August 13, 2014

    this bottom femme queen should had just keep it cute, everybody knows rita ora is an undercover h0 nothing new there but he shouldn’t have mix work with personal hes a producer and he should know better that was a d*** move on calvin and hes coming off bitter while rita already moving on. GURL BYE!

  15. Blue August 13, 2014

    Here are the mistakes Rita made:
    1. One mixing business with pleasure
    2. Not getting the rights to do with the songs as she pleased
    3. Cheatig(or whatever she did that led to the break up.)
    4. When calvin blocked her from performing that one song she should have immediately gone amd performed whatever(you dont an album out or one that is going to be released soon so right now its all about promoting brand ora not the album)
    5. Confirming or denying the rumours…especially when you in the wrong.

  16. Blue August 13, 2014

    He gave those songs to his gf, to someone that loved and respected him. She betrayed that whichever way. And he made the choice not to be associated with her or her brand again and blocked her peforming his songs, its Ora and her camp that made this a big deal. He has been private about it till her interview.

  17. Blue August 13, 2014

    Say what you will about rihanna but she still performs disturbia even after everything that happened between her and chris, she still doing take care…she still gets love from chris and drake (writing songs about her and for her, attending her concert and liking pics of her) and matt has never said a bad thing about her.

  18. MISHKA August 13, 2014

    Rita, this guy helped you get a hit song, at last! You should have worked on your relationship and stayed with him for a whole another year just to show your appreciation. Because that little Roc Nation career of yours wasn’t going anywhere anyway.

    First Rob, now Calvin, I see there’s a pattern here. You IS trifling and you keep getting put on blast. Not a good look.

    OAN TGJ, can we talk about Love DollHouse a.k.a the new TLC? Those girls are on the rise!

  19. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! August 13, 2014

    On Monday, August 18th, Taylor will hold a worldwide live stream on Yahoo from New York City

    Everyone watch!!!!

  20. Diamond Princess August 13, 2014

    Again with the immaturity on this blog. “If someone hurts my feelings I have to hurt theirs back,” sooooo mature! How old is he? But I guess that doesn’t matter, with age doesn’t always come maturity. But the guys in the music industry are shady anyways. If you don’t give it up they make you feel like you can’t get anywhere. Idk Rita but I do know that the girl doesn’t dress sleazy or post naked pics on the internet or talk about s** in her music all the time like “other celebs” I know. People hate this girl so much why I don’t know. I guess people are threatened by her.

  21. Sass August 13, 2014

    Still petty. You talk about your ‘personal’ life being personal but then go ad fuel to the fire by doing that.

  22. Jose August 13, 2014

    Calvin wins lmao
    Epic way to get back at somebody lol

  23. DJY August 13, 2014

    You all are silly lambs, how can you defend or fight against the one or the other when you obviously weren’t there? please… stop believing all and anything, wake up.

  24. Kweli69j August 13, 2014

    Can we stop trying to make Rita Ora happen…. I’m sure she’s a nice girl but her music just isn’t good…. Like a Rihanna album filler song

  25. Real Talk August 13, 2014

    People are ridiculous commenting about her cheating or ho3ing around. Firstly what proof do you have? Secondly, if she was hiding something why would she even press everyone to ask him what his reason was. Calvin is so damn stuck up. He owes an explanation to fans as to why he didnt agree to let her perform.
    & there is no 1 side to story as she didn’t even say why he stopped her from performing it. If hes got a personal vendetta against her he should man up and sort it with her directly

    • Diamond Princess August 13, 2014

      Exactly! ALWAYS be professional. Pharrel said it best, there are plenty of talented producers on the planet. So when you’re given the opportunity to do something in this business you better produce, because the FANS make you. Say what you want about “Rita whora” as they call her, but that chick has a fan base. Pop stars always trump producers fame wise, so he might wanna check himself b/c unless these fools siding with him go out and support his music or music he produces for others, it won’t be long until he has a problem in the music industry. Hollywood is big but so small, never burn bridges!

  26. Sarah August 13, 2014

    I don’t see him disrespecting Rita..he simply addressed why he pulled the song from the show..Like Rita said..she had no idea why he did it..and like he said..he had a damn good reason

    • tits mcgee August 13, 2014

      What she said is to ask Calvin why he made
      the decision to pull the song. Then when
      Ryan asked her of she was surprised he did it
      she said ‘No’.

      She knows what is going on here, and he confirmed
      this is personal, so..

  27. RatedR August 13, 2014

    You Thirsty Stans Can Stop Using ROB as Reference when he clearly publicly stated that he Lied about all those accusations because she moved on . If this was anybody else y’all would be like she needs to sue or something but At the end of the day It looks petty and you shouldn’t let it come between someone’s career ; if he didn’t want her to have the song then he should have gave it to someone else .

    • Diamond Princess August 13, 2014

      Yea plus Rob is a lil b-i-t-c-h anyways! His own family thinks he’s a loser but don’t want anyone else to say it. Plus he cheated on Adriene Bailon so… Pot meet kettle.

  28. tits mcgee August 13, 2014

    What a mess! This is all entertaining, but dumb.

    Him responding makes him looks super bitter
    and pressed. We all caught the shade Calvin,
    no need to go on unless you spill all the tea.

    The only good is that he by implication just
    confirmed what we all have seen with this


    • Diamond Princess August 13, 2014

      Exactly! Known for his quietness but now he chooses to speak. Maybe b/c he knows what he did was wrong! People don’t feel the need to justify a situation unless they feel guilty. A hit DOG will hollier.

      • Diamond Princess August 13, 2014


  29. truth August 13, 2014

    Why no post about Ciara and Future breaking up ? Lol

  30. Blue August 13, 2014

    This is not petty as he has the legal right to decide who uses his music, she is just someone he doesnt want to. She decided to cancel the performance.

  31. Absolved August 13, 2014

    This is all so stupid. Him blocking her from performing that song at a nationally televised event was the ultimate “cutting off your own nose to spite your face” move. It would have given HIS song more exposure and HE would have reaped monetary reward from it. Just her performing the song would have given the publisher flat compensation. And if it spiked sales, that would have been even more money. What a fool.

    Anyway, Rita and Roc should take this as a lesson to not depend so heavily on cocky and overused songwriters who think that they’re the rock stars. It would be to everyone’s benefit if she from here on out started being at least a primary co-writer of her own music so that she can better control how it’s used. And when she does record a song written by someone else, she should stipulate in the contract that she has free reign to perform it whenever and wherever. Rita was a fool for allowing herself to just be a spokes-model for Calvin’s song. Next time demand more control over usage.

    • Diamond Princess August 13, 2014

      Totally agree she should use this as a learning experience going forward. She needs to sign a contract with writers to perform the song whenever she chooses. She needs to buy the rights or co write her songs. Honestly that song sucked but no one should be able to dictate when a singer performs a song the songwriter gave to them.

  32. cocobutta August 13, 2014

    He said f that and shaded himself cus he sure could have used her for the money as he gets the royalties of the song.

    The better it does the more money he makes.

    My tip wouldn’t been if u think she a h** then you be the pimp and get your Pebbles Reid coins off that track

    Maybe he doesn’t think US wont lap it up and cut his losses.

    • cocobutta August 13, 2014

      Wouldn’t smh meant would’ve

  33. Tisha August 13, 2014

    A DAMN good reason he said!


    Rita is a mess. Even when she falls flat on her face she thinks she can play innocent and try and cover her tracks. We KNOW boo boo, and unless you want Calvin to spill the tea you better keep your lips shut and start working your jaw somewhere else. Maybe you’ll find the right dck or pssy to write you a new album but I don’t see you escaping your own reptation.

    If she had her own music she wouldn’t have been clinging to this one single like a life preserver and have her new album so dependent on him. She knew he’d be the one to make her really break US markets and now she has nothing.

  34. TheOuyonB August 13, 2014

    It’s all just a ridiculous mess. Rita Ora’s name has been trashed in this industry since before people even knew she was actually a singer. She sings decent, but I have never heard anything from her worth my time or dollar. And for Calvin, maybe he won’t tell his side of the story because it will show that he was completely in his feelings. Blocking that performance really doesn’t do anything. These idiots need to learn to keep business and pleasure separate, regardless to what may transpire. He knew she was “loose” when he got with her and now he is acting surprised that she cheated. Overall, he is truly the dumb a** here and I’m disappointed. I actually like Calvin Harris, but this is truly silly.

  35. Tisha August 13, 2014

    Lol stans mad the man has standards and won’t let himself be anyone’s fool.

    If you’re willing to let someone do you dirty and then make money off your hard work then so be it. The world is full of a LOT of those people. All Calvin did was say, “You’re not gonna use my work after what you did.”

    RITA is the one who brought it up and tried to play coy. If he’s bitter, weak, lame and a p**** for cutting her off and letting her fend for herself then I have to side-eye what you all do in your romantic relationships and what kind of bullsht you expect your SO to support and forgive.

    Then again maybe some of you only switch when it’s a woman, then it’s “Get em girl! Don’t let him play you!”

    • Diamond Princess August 13, 2014

      I can’t believe you have my name b/c you’re a fool if you think he wouldn’t have gotten more money from the record, since he is the main songwriter. There are better ways to get back at a person that doesn’t involve screwing yourself business wise. If I had an ex that I worked with I wouldn’t let the deal fall through b/c I was mad they cheated on me. I would be a BOSS about it and continue to make money and then cut the person off professionally and personally. Idc how much money you have, why waste your time by putting in so much work only to not reap the benefits? People these days are very simple minded, fight over petty s-h-i-t instead of looking at the bigger picture. I guess that’s why there are more IGNORANT people in the world than INTELLIGENT. And there are more MILLIONAIRES than BILLIONAIRES.

      • Tisha August 13, 2014

        1. Calvin Harris has one of the best selling albums this year and is working with the most successful chart toppers writing for their songs/albums. The man makes BANK.

        2. If you let money rule your life it explains why you’re supporting Rita (the girl who’s nicknames are now Whora and Oral). Money isn’t worth the price of your soul or pride, but hey…if that’s called being a boss than Whora Oral has got some business advice for you girl.

        3. There’s also more PROSTITUTES than JOHNS, those who sell their bodies and souls to make a buck thinking it will fulfill them and those who’s rather lose some coins than support the guilty. Like I said it’s all about how you want to live your life, Calvin is doing just fine. Meanwhile Rita had to cancel a performance and scramble to re-record a new album when she’s already struggling. Seems to me the choices made and the results from them are easy to judge.

  36. former rihanna stan August 13, 2014

    Whatever. B*** hurt m***********.

  37. umm August 13, 2014

    I just think its a Lil funny how yall knw so much about Rita Ora s** life and can confirm who she had s** with better than probably her parents or close friends could. Anyway Calvin Harris also low key called Rihanna a how and said she kept coming on to him so y’all navis can stop co signing cuz dude ain’t fond of rih either. Regardless of their personal relationship or his rights to the song, it was a b**** move! If you give me the song to perform then that’s what I should be able to do even if we no longer are on good terms. Y’all need to stop getting into your feelings with this girl cause she ain’t done a damn thing to you but offer u a different choice in music. I have never seen her be rude, arrogant or be slutty so her PUBLIC image is clean.

    • former rihanna stan August 13, 2014

      He did not call rihanna a h**. He likes blondes and Rihanan tried to hit on him, but he shut her ugly flat nose, wife head ass down

  38. Mr.Amo.Marx August 13, 2014

    Why do you feel the need to defend when you dont know her either
