Big news from Us Weekly, who are reporting that Taylor Swift calls Calvin Harris not by his stage name (yes, that is a stage name), but by his real name, Adam. 

“Taylor always calls Calvin by his birth name, Adam, and never Calvin in private,” a source close to the couple told the magazine, adding that Swift is "head over heels.” and "hasn't been in love like this before!"

Great, so happy for you, Taylor. But let's get back to the whole name thing. Calvin Harris is a stage name. The 31-year-old DJ was born Adam Wiles, but he adopted a stage name that he thought sounded more "racially ambiguous." No, really.  

 "My first single was more of a soul track, and I thought Calvin Harris sounded a bit more racially ambiguous," he told Digital Spy in 2009. "I thought people might not know if I was black or not. After that, I was stuck with it."

Can't make this stuff up.
