The Cult of Harry Styles: Why Are We Obsessed With One Direction's Main Man?
Why does everybody love One Direction star Harry Styles so much?
Harry Styles can do no wrong. He may have been eliminated early from The X Factor when he auditioned as a solo artist back in 2010, but Simon and his cronies saw Harry’s potential and brought him back along with four other teenage boys to form a boyband. Can you guess who they went on to become?
Harry has gained a worldwide following
While they didn’t actually win The X Factor, One Direction have since topped a lot more charts and gained a lot more international success than the actual winner, Joe McElderry. But that’s not all they’ve gained. The 1D boys have formed a Bieleber-esque following of passionate and dedicated female fans around the globe, and none more so than Harry.
Harry has amassed an army of supporters and a little bit of a bad boy reputation to boot. While the other 1D boys are often photographed together or in Zayn’s case, with his Little Mix fiancee Perrie Edwards, Harry is often seen out and about without his band members and with a collection of celebrity mates we never knew he had. You’ll find Harry at the FROW (that’s the Front Row at fashion shows for those of you who aren’t obsessed with the runway) with actress Sienna Miller or hanging out in Las Vegas with Pixie Geldof and Alexa Chung.
Harry’s love life has definitely won some headlines, particularly since his relationship with TV presenter Caroline Flack, who is fifteen years older than the pop star. Fans were so outraged by their age gap that the One Direction magazine printed a ‘Caroline Flash Voodoo Doll‘, which encouraged readers to stick pins in a photograph of her. Harry has since gone on to have relationships with a string of famous women including American singer Taylor Swift, English supermodel Cara Delevingne and most recently model and Kardashian clan member, Kendall Jenner.
In 2013 Harry won the Male Hottie and Best Smile award at the Teen Choice Awards and the British Style Award at the British Fashion Awards. Along with the multiple number one’s he enjoys alongside his One Direction band mates, Harry looks set to rule the world. He’s even guest starred in Nickelodeon’s iCarly as well as the One Direction movie. Is there anything that this boy doesn’t do?
Harry has been linked romantically to Kendall Jenner
At Wednesday’s BRIT awards One Direction won awards for Best Video and Global Success, although for the latter award Harry had to rush on stage to join his bandmates as he claimed he was in the loo. It’s since surfaced that he may have actually been having a cheeky cig with good friend, Nick Grimshaw.
Harry wasn’t the only star of the night to get all caught up with Nick! For the time being, Harry looks set to go from strength to strength. His cheeky chappy ways and down-to-earth charisma are the ideal recipe for a superstar. 1D stars may get mad when people compare their idol to Mick Jagger, but when you think that Mick is still going strong 51 years after The Rolling Stones first started it’s not quite such a bad comparison, is it?
