Calvin Harris Thanks ‘Superstar’ Rihanna As He Collects A 2016 VMA For ‘This Is What You Came For’
There was one person missing from his speech though...
However, though he did include a heartfelt thank you to Rihanna in his message, it seems the focus of his award has actually shifted onto a noticeable omission from his acceptance speech in the form of Taylor Swift, who co-wrote the track, originally under the pseudonym Nils Sjöberg.
Collecting his award via a video as he was unable to attend the awards in person, Calvin said: “Wow! Wow! First of all, I'm so sorry I can't be there, I have a show tonight in the UK or else I would definitely be there.
“MTV, this is crazy. I need to thank Rihanna from the bottom of my heart. You're a superstar, every time we work together you bring something magical to the project so thank you. Emil Nava the director you're a legend, you're my favorite man on earth, thank you for everything you've done for me.
“And everybody who supported this song, who watched the video, I love you so much. Thank you. This is amazing. I love you. Thank you, MTV.”
You can watch the 2016 MTV VMA pre-show Monday at 8pm on MTV UK before the main show kicks off at 9pm featuring performances from Rihanna, Britney Spears & G-Eazy, Ariana Grande & Nicki Minaj, The Chainsmokers & Halsey and more...
