In an interview with E News, the “Sign of the Times” singer finally opened up about his past relationship with Taylor Swift.
Styles talks about how when he began dating Swift he was only 18 and was still trying to navigate through relationships. If dating isn’t hard enough already, dating in the public eye can make any relationship tricky. The singer can google search an image from a second date he had with Swift, which is something most of us can’t do! It’s hard to have “normal” date when people are constantly taking photos of you.
I think the question most people wanted answered was does he think Taylor Swifts songs “Out of the Woods”, and “Style”, are about him. Although the singer didn’t confirm anything he did say this,
“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,” he says, adding, “I write from my experiences; everyone does that. I’m lucky if everything [we went through together] helped create those songs. That’s what hits your heart.”
Styles tried to avoid talking about the subject in too much depth but he did say that he doesn’t have any ill will against Taylor.
“In writing songs about stuff like that, I like tipping a hat to the time together. You’re celebrating the fact it was powerful and made you feel something, rather than ‘this didn’t work out, and that’s bad.”
Who thinks there will be a song “tipping a hat” to Swift on Harry’s upcoming self titled album?
His album is expected to be released May 12, 2017!
