Harry Styles is basking in his own star power now that he’s going solo. The former One Direction member is already looking to release his first album, and his track Sign Of The Times is climbing the charts. And now, Harry Styles finds himself on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. It brings a flashback to the time Justin Timberlake made his first RS cover after leaving ‘NSync.
But what people really want to know about is Harry’s private life. He’s been spotted with a number of members from the Swift Squad in the past – including Taylor Swift herself – and Kendall Jenner. And speaking about Swift, was there ever a spark there? Back in 2012, Taylor and Harry were spotted taking a stroll through Central Park. The tabloids exploded with stories about their relationship. Was it true? Harry Styles speaks out: “When I see photos from that day I think: relationships are hard, at any age. And adding in that you don’t really understand exactly how it works when you’re eighteen; trying to navigate all that stuff didn’t make it easier. I mean, you’re a little bit awkward to begin with. You’re on a date with someone you really like. It should be that simple, right? It was a learning experience for me. But at the heart of it – I just wanted it to be a normal date.”
Well, if there’s one thing he’s learned it’s that Taylor Swift is one of the most famous faces in the world! Of course she’s going to be followed like a hawk wherever she goes. And when Swift released her album 1989, there were two tracks that stuck out like a sore thumb – Out Of The Woods and Style. Did they have anything to do with him?
“I mean, I don’t know if they’re about me or not. But the issue is, she’s so good, they’re bloody everywhere. I write from my experiences; everyone does that. That’s what hits your heart. That’s the stuff that’s hardest to say, and it’s the stuff I talk least about. That’s the part that’s about two people. I’m never going to tell anybody everything.”
Harry Styles’ first solo album will release on May 12, 2017.
