We guess it's like actors being called by their character's name, so it's not really a surprise we suppose, but apparently Calvin Harris hates being called by his stage name.
It's all sweet when he's behind the decks, but at all other times he wants you to call him by his actual name - Adam Wiles.
“No one calls me Calvin. It’s horrible and it’s not my name,” the producer said in a recent interview, “At the start of my career [when] people were meeting me for the first time, I let it slide. It was sort of a nickname,” Wiles added.
But as time went on, Wiles realised that if he let it slide it would hold. He eventually put his foot down to being called Calvin off stage when his girlfriend started calling him by his DJ name.
"I was like, ‘I’m sorry this is ridiculous. You’re speaking to my alter ego. Since that day I’ve been like, ‘I don’t care if you think it’s a nickname or anything, it’s not my name.'"
Noted. So if you're ever lucky enough to meet the star, just be very careful to call him Adam instead of Calvin as to not piss him off. You're welcome.
