Calvin Harris wants you to trash your home

Calvin HarrisCalvin Harris has been having fun with the press. He’s been running a competition to have him DJ at a house party in the future (details here), however the press have taken it completely the wrong way, slating him as irresponsible. Recently he posted a myspace bulletin:

GMTV wanted me to go on this morning to answer various probing mumsy questions but the label thought it would be a bad idea as i would be unable to cope with Ben Shepard’s tough line of questioning, which is a shame as that would have been a life ambition fufilled.

Anyway, they want me to do a video blog explaining how to ‘party responsibly’ in a most patronising tone, because apparently you don’t know that its a REALLY stupid idea to invite people you don’t know into your house for a party because i can GUARANTEE they will be pissing on your sofas and shitting in your cupboards within 5 minutes.

This just goes to show how alarmist some sections of our press can be (I’m looking at you, GMTV and Daily Mail!). He was never encouraging people to trash their homes, and plenty of other artists have played gigs in fans homes (indeed, there was a time when it was the in thing – Delays did it, and umpteen other bands have done it)

Said video is after the jump – its quite amusing, if you’re of a sensible disposition, and don’t take yourself too seriously.
