The Teen Choice Awards are bringing out everyone's drama-loving inner-teen.

Earlier this week, Rita Ora told Ryan Seacrest that she had to cancel her scheduled performance at the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday because her ex-boyfriend, Calvin Harris, wouldn't sign off on it. (He wrote and produced her song "I Will Never Let You Down," which is why we're talking about what he thinks about things.)

Naturally, Harris doesn't exactly see things the same way. Today he tweeted, "You'll only know 1 side of the story RE Teen choice awards because I choose not to talk to the papers about every aspect of my personal life. But just know I had a damn good reason."

Then -- in a move that would make any teen proud -- he ended his rebuttal with an emoji.

Hey, Calvin, have you by chance seen Ora's latest Kill Bill-inspired music video
