I follow a few celebs on twitter – mainly because i like their music or whatever it is they do. Calvin Harris is one of those people, and tonight he’s really let rip at itv for making him do stupid things for TV. It involved trying (and failing) to open a jar of jam – and heres what he had to say about it
“ITS NOT THE EMBARRASSMENT OF NOT OPENING THE JAM, I HAVE COME TO TERMS WITH MY LACK OF UPPER BODY STRENGTH”
“ITS THE OVERWHELMING SADNESS I FEEL THAT SOMEBODY WHO MAKES TV THINKS THIS IS AN ACCEPTABLE AND ENTERTAINING FEATURE”
“ITS NOT. ITS SHITE. AND I WOULD LIKE TO PUBLICLY CALL FOR THE PEOPLE RESONSIBLE FOE THE ‘CAN YOU OPEN MY JAM? FEATURE TO PUBLICLY APOLOGISE”
“NOT TO ME, BUT TO ANY POTENTIAL VIEWER, FOR POTENTIALLY EXPOSING THEM TO THE WORST SHIT IMAGINEABLE ON TELEVISION. HEADS SHOULD ROLL”
Random – i know. But this seems to of caused a stir with people who follow him;
“Yeah a lot of people seem to have missed the point. I hate fucking twitter. I met Q-Tip. THERE IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT TO HEAR?!”
“See that’s the sort of thing I’m talking about. I DON’T EXPECT YOU TO LIKE MY MUSIC! ITS A MATTER OF TASTE! Don’t like it? PLEASE GO AWAY!”
Where you and i might rant about something on tv, or rant about something that has pissed us off – people like mr harris are in the public spotlight and anything they say can and will be used against them.
High profile people can easily slip up – just look at the Mi6 agent that put information and photos of him and his family on facebook. Not the brightest move, eh!
EDIT More upset fans! @calvinharris why u dont u go away ur a twat on twitter! Loser. – Oh dear :/
EDIT Just checked his account again, and he’s lost 10 followers in 2 minutes!
LAST EDIT He’s actually released a video called Jam TV – maybe its a way of him trying to make light of the situation?
