A feud between the Mother Monster and DJ Calvin Harris, who has worked with artists such as Rihanna, Ne-Yo and Florence Welch, broke out via Twitter recently after an interview Calvin had with BBC Breakfast.

He told the host that he declined the opportunity to work with Lady Gaga on her music back in 2008, claiming that at the time he was just too busy with other projects. But it somehow came out that he wasn’t too impressed by her.

Although the Twitter battle was over in the matter of a few hours, it caused a lot of buzz among fans. So Calvin sat down with 92.3 NOW/New York’s Zann to clear the air.

“It all came from this thing four years ago… It was a remix request that her label sent me. I wasn’t in the studio at the time, so I said I couldn’t do it,” said Calvin.

“And then it came back last week,” continued Calvin. “[It was reported] that I said ‘no’ to a collaboration request, which wasn’t the case.”

Here’s how it all went down…

Clearly offended by what was reported, Gaga tweeted:

According to the Queen of Pop, she never even contacted the Scottish DJ to work on a collaboration…

But Calvin quickly explained the situation and apologized for the misunderstanding. Glad that the issue was resolved, Gaga also apologized and congratulated Calvin on his new album.

Glad that’s all cleared up. But more importantly, what does Calvin think of the new boy band craze re: The Wanted and One Direction?

“I’m into it. I’m glad that there’s two of them that’s British,” admits Calvin. “I think it’s strange how there wasn’t any boy bands for so long. Pretty much America was at the forefront of boy bands in the ’90s, with your *NSync and Backstreet Boys… and then they forgot that it made them a lot of money.”
