Calvin Harris Apparently Grew a Beard to Win a Grammy & I'm Confused

Calvin Harris went on a Twitter rant on Tuesday night, explaining his unsuccessful attempt at impressing the Recording Academy by growing a beard

Apparently thinking that sporting some facial hair would make the Recording Academy take him more seriously, the music artist hoped that it would have won him a Producer of the Year award. 

Mentioning that the beard seemed to be working as he'd hoped by gaining him a nomination — but it didn't pull through in the long run. 

Concluding the wistful climax of his sad tweets with, "A big ol beard can only take you so far," Harris stated in another tweet that he's moving forward with the rest of the year. 

I'm truly at a loss for words. Is he talking in code? Does this all tie back to Taylor Swift somehow? Someone please help.
