Will Calvin Harris Be At The Billboard Music Awards? His Accident Could Keep Him Away
Count this as one of the top things you never want to hear — that one of your favorite stars was involved in a car accident. If you haven't yet been made aware, that was unfortunately what happened to DJ Calvin Harris this weekend. But the good news is that while Harris was in a car crash, he wasn't gravely hurt. In fact, according to TMZ, while the accident caused him a facial laceration, he apparently went home from the hospital that very same night (albeit against the doctor's wishes). So, does that mean that Calvin Harris will be at the Billboard Music Awards like expected, or will he have to stay home?
Right now, it's unclear, and all things considered, Harris' recovery should be everyone's first priority. Award shows and appearances mean nothing if he isn't feeling his best. On early Saturday morning, the star's reps posted this on his Facebook page:
Adam's transport was involved in a collision this evening on the way to the airport. As a result he will be unable to perform at Omnia tonight. He has been examined by doctors and told to rest for a few days.
Take a deep breath and wipe that sweat off your brow. Rest assured that Harris' girlfriend Taylor Swift most likely rushed to deliver him some much needed TLC, or at the very least, sent him one of her famously thoughtful gifts in lieu of an appearance if she couldn't make it. What I'm trying to say here, aside from my own personal dreamed up Tayvin scenarios, is that I am sure that Harris is being taken care of.
Relationship talk aside, in terms of whether or not the star will attend the BBMAs, it's looking unlikely. Considering that his Omnia performance was canceled and that the accident only occurred on Friday night, it'd seem that according to his statement, he probably won't attend the Billboard Music Awards as he still might be resting. It makes a lot of sense, as whether he left the hospital or not, it doesn't mean he still doesn't require some recuperation time.
Of course, there's always the chance that Harris is feeling better than expected and decides to attend. Personally, I hope that's the case. It'd be nice to see him at the show, if for nothing else but to know that the DJ is doing OK and so that he can receive love and support from worried fans and colleagues.
