One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles has insisted he”s not quite the bad boy that he is often portrayed.
“I don”t think I”ve done anything that bad, have I” he said. “I wouldn”t say villain. But I don”t know, we”ll see.” Harry was reacting after being nominated for a villain of the year award at this month”s NME awards.
“I think you”ve got to take the rough with the smooth, right,” he added. “You can’t complain.”
The 19-year-old has made headlines in the past for relationships with Xtra Factor presenter Caroline Flack, 32, and more recently, Taylor Swift. He and Taylor embarked on a short romance at the end of 2012, but called it quits just a few weeks later after a row while on holiday.
There has been speculation that he sent a thinly veiled Valentine”s message to Taylor by picking the country singer”s hit Love Story as one of 11 songs featured on One Direction”s Valentine’s Day playlist on Spotify. Taylor, recently alluded to their fling when she was on stage at the Grammys.
The singer was performing her single We are Never Ever Getting Back Together when she broke into a British accent and said “I”m busy opening up the Grammys – and we”re never, ever getting back together.”
Harry will be on stage this week. He and his bandmates Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson will perform their Red Nose Day single One Way or Another at the BRIT Awards on 20 February.
