Former One Direction singer Harry Styles spoke candidly about his ex releasing songs about him and their relationship in a now resurfaced interview.


Harry Styles is no stranger to having people write their true feelings about him and his ex-girlfriend certainly didn’t shy away from doing so.

The former One Direction heartthrob famously dated the country music songstress in 2012, which saw Harry take Taylor to his hometown of Holmes Chapel, Cheshire.

Since their relationship, fans have continued to believe that her hit singles Style and Out of the Woods are about the Cheshire lad and their relationship.


The Treat People With Kindness singer, 26, spoke to Howard Stern earlier this year about the records which are believed to be about him.

“I think about what it means to me to write a song about somebody else and for somebody else to do that, it’s like flattering, even if the song isn’t that flattering, you still spent time on it and ultimately, using Taylor as an example, she’s a great songwriter,” he said.

He went on to add: “So at least they’re good songs.”

Despite there being no bad blood between the hitmakers, he did admit he would be a little disheartened if an ex wrote a bad song about him.

“The only time you really think, ‘is this song too personal?’ is if you think about, ‘is this going to be really annoying for the other person?’ Because I do [care],” he admitted.


Speaking to Rolling Stone magazine in 2017, he said: “I’m lucky if everything [we went through] helped create those songs.

Fans have speculated around the identity of the mystery man in Taylor’s music thanks to the lyrics which include: “younger than exes but he acts like such a man,” with Harry notably being the youngest of her ex-lovers.

A lyric from Style says: “You’ve got that long hair slick back, white t-shirt,” a look Harry was famed for during his One Direction days.
