Twittergem: Calvin Harris

Hang on, Calvin Harris is off again:

Imagine you just spent 2 years of your life making a record. on your own. every single day, long hours, working to get it sounding right

imagine the buzz of making something that you love, and after 2 years you finally have something you can't wait for other people to hear

And i can't ignore it, sorry, but it does affect me, + it is hurtful, + i know that it's exactly what i wanted it to be, and i'm proud of it

I'm a little lost as to why, if Harris holds reviewers in such low esteem and has a following who enjoys his work so much, that he's bothered by what they say.

It's Alexis Petridis' review in the Guardian Film & Music which Harris has gone out of his way to draw attention to.

We're just waiting for Harris to tweet that his girlfriend is fuming and that he only reads the gig guide.
