One Direction’s Harry Styles Says He and Taylor Swift Are “Friends”
Recently, there have been rumors that there’s something going on between One Direction’s Harry Styles and Taylor Swift it all started when Taylor reportedly told Justin Bieber at the Kids Choice Awards that she had a crush on Harry. So, are they the next Justin and Selena? Well, no. At least, not yet.Harry says that he and Taylor have exchanged phone numbers, and says she’s “very talented.” The paper reports that Harry then “paused to choose his words carefully” before adding, “She’s very nice. We’re friends.”
Harry, who’s 18, famously has a thing for older women, and at 22, Taylor is definitely that. However, he seems to prefer women who are even older: his last girlfriend was 32, and he recently hit on ex-Bachelorette Jillian Harris, also 32.
One Direction’s Zayn Malik denied reports that Simon Cowell, who put the group together, had forbidden them from dating altogether. “Not true. It would have been a bit rough,” said Zayn. “We work hard and we play hard, so that would have been a bit rough.
We’re normal guys. If we find a girl attractive… if you meet a girl, you meet a girl. If you exchange numbers then…whatevs.” In that same interview, the group also addressed the recent lawsuit brought by a U.S. group also called One Direction. “We’re not changing our name,” insists Zayn. “We don’t know what’s going to happen but we’re not changing our name.”
