Calvin Harris thinks we need to put things in boxes to function as human beings

Calvin Harris has been talking pretty profoundly about the need we have as humans to pigeonhole things.
In a fairly lengthy interview with The Sun that covers Rihanna (obviously), back ache and his love of whisky, the ‘Love Souvenir’ hitmaker also had some words for people that claim he’s sold out by selling a song to Cheryl ‘Cheryl’ Cole.
“Those people that complain about me giving songs to Cheryl and that don’t know anything about what I’ve done before,” he said. “The first thing I ever did was a Kylie Minogue record, before anything by me came out.”
“I think people’s general character means they have to put things in boxes whether it’s music or the clothes they wear themselves,” he mused.
“In order to function as a human being you need to put things in boxes to realise who you are. I don’t think that’s ever going to change.”
So there you have it.
