Did Calvin Harris take a jab at Taylor Swift at the GQ Men of the Year Awards?

07 September 2016, 16:09

Los Angeles - Calvin Harris hinted about his break-up with Taylor Swift as he picked up his GQ award.

The 32-year-old DJ collected the Patron Solo Artist Of The Year Award at the GQ Men of the Year Awards 2016 on Tuesday night, and admitted he had "been through a lot" in the past year, which hinted at his split from the 26-year-old singer, which they confirmed in June, after 15 months together.

Speaking at the ceremony, the This Is What You Came For musician said: "I feel at 32 I'm nearing the end. Just kidding. This week 100 years ago was when I left Marks and Spencer Simply Food in Clapham South where I carried out such tasks as date-rotating sandwiches and moving the salmon. I'd like to dedicate this to my manager Mark Gillespie for being a fantastic man. We've been through a lot and discovered a lot this year."

The news of the Summer singer's thinly veiled jibe at the Taylor comes after it was reported she has split from her new beau Tom Hiddleston, 35.

As well as Calvin, several artists picked up accolades at the GQ Men of the Year Awards at the Tate Modern in London, including Aidan Turner, who won Best Actor and Bella Hadid who took home the award for Model of the Year.

Sir Michael Caine was awarded this year's Legend title, alongside comedian Billy Connolly who took home the Inspiration award.
