Harry Styles left red-faced after Nick Grimshaw quizzes him over Taylor Swift
HARRY STYLES was left with nowhere to hide after being probed about Taylor Swift on BBC Radio One.
The One Direction star was on Nick Grimshaw’s Breakfast Show to play his debut album when talk turned to his former flame.
Grimshaw decided to do Styles ‘a favour’ by addressing the rumours that his track Two Ghosts is about Swift, whom he dated briefly in 2012.
Grimshaw said: ‘You’re going to be asked about this, so I’m doing you a favour here. What is this song about? Don’t make me go to the lyrics.’
Visibly cringing, Harry said: ‘I think it’s pretty self-explanatory.’
He then turned to his publicist and begged: ‘Help me!’
Struggling to explain, Harry rambled: ‘I think it’s about, sometimes things change and you can do all of the same things and sometimes it’s just different, you know?’
Fans have remarked that Two Ghosts bears a striking resemblance to Taylor Swift’s hit Style. Both songs are about former lovers reuniting and Taylor even references her ‘red lip classic thing that you like’, which mirrors Harry’s ‘same lips red, same eyes blue’ lyric in Two Ghosts.
The comments came as Harry joined the presenter for the special Harry Styles Listening Party programme.
The hour-long slot played tracks from the album including Only Angel, Sweet Creature, Woman and Kiwi, which Harry described as one of his favourites.
Harry is currently touring around promoting the new album, and even dropped in to surprise fans at a film screening documenting the record’s creation.
Styles told fans before the 45-minute film aired that emergence of the documentary had been almost accidental.
‘This is a bit of a weird one because I had a friend with me filming a lot of stuff while I was writing the album and I didn’t really plan on doing anything with it and he was just there and it was very easy for him to be around and not feel like there was a big crew there.’
Speaking about the release of his eponymous debut album, Styles said: ‘I found this process of making the album very fun, it was one of the best times I’ve had in my life, it was an album that made me very happy to make and when it comes out tonight I hope you guys get a little bit of happiness.’
