Biography

Harry Styles (born 01.02.1994) Harry Styles is an English singer from the boyband One Direction.

Childhood: Harry Styles was born in Evesham, Worcestershire, England and grew up in the village of Holmes Chapel in Cheshire. His parents are Anne Cox and Des Styles but they divorced when he was 7. He attended Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School and had a job at the W. Mandeville Bakery in the village when he was 16 before auditioning for the UK TV singing competition 'The X Factor'.

Musical career: Harry Styles was first in a band called White Eskimo with lead guitarist Haydn Morris, bass guitarist Nick Clough and drummer Will Sweeny and with whom he won a Battle of the Bands competition. Among his influences are Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Foster the People, Coldplay and Kings of Leon. He auditioned for 'The X Factor' in 2010 as a solo artist but, after failing to make it to the Judges Houses round, he was put together with other solo candidates Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson to make a new band for the Groups category at the suggestion of one of the judges Nicole Scherzinger. Harry was the band member who put forward the name 'One Direction' which was agreeable to the other members. One Direction came third place in the competition but were subsequently signed to mentor Simon Cowell's Syco Records anyway. Since forming, One Direction has won two BRIT awards, three Teen Choice awards and broke a Guinness World Record as the first British group in US chart history to open at number one in the US with a debut album after the release of 'Up All Night'.

Personal Life:  Harry Styles has had various high profile relationships and is known for dating women older than him. In 2011, he dated 'The Xtra Factor' host Caroline Flack who is 15 years his senior. Flack received many death threats from die hard One Direction fans as a result. In 2012, he began dating country pop singer Taylor Swift even spending New Year's Eve together. However, they split in January 2013. Harry has more than thirty tattoos on his body.

Harry Styles To Executive-Produce Sitcom Based On One Direction Days


Harry Styles One Direction

Harry Styles is to serve as executive producer on a new sitcom loosely based around the early days of his band One Direction, it has been confirmed.

Called ‘Happy Together’, the new show will be broadcast on CBS and will be based on a real-life period in Styles’ life, when he lived with a friend, Ben Winston, and his wife in a house in the suburbs of London, when One Direction was in its embryonic stages.

Styles originally said he'd be moving in for just a couple of weeks, with a house he wanted to move into nearby needing some work before he started living there, according to a Rolling Stone interview with Winston last year. However, the pop star ended up sleeping on a mattress in the attic for 20 months.

Children, Cupcakes And Canines: Harry Styles Drops The Video For 'Kiwi'


Harry Styles

While there's a real classic rock flavour to Harry Styles' latest single 'Kiwi', the new video for the track really couldn't be less rock and roll. Starring child actress Beau Gadsdon, it features one of the most innocent war games ever depicted in a music video.

Directed by filmmaking duo Us, the video sees a really serious bunch of children bringing along cupcakes for what you might initially think is a really intense bake sale in the school hall. However, it soon turns into a food fight of epic proportions; more like a baking battle, or cupcake carnage. Later Harry Styles arrives, wearing the exact same suit as one of the young girls (played by Beau Gadsdon from 'Rogue One' and 'The Crown'), flanked by an army of adorable pooches who make sure the sugary ammo doesn't go to waste.

Asda Bans Sale Of Kiwi Fruit To Under-25s Ahead Of Harry Styles Gig


Harry Styles

An Asda store in Manchester announced that it temporarily banned the sale of kiwi fruits to anybody under the age of 25, in a bizarre move motivated by Harry Styles.

The odd crackdown on the fruit came after the former One Direction singer was pelted onstage with them during a gig in London earlier this week when performing the song ‘Kiwi’.

In an effort to prevent the same thing from happening at last night’s gig in Manchester’s O2 Apollo, wary that Styles might get covered in the fruit or slip on pulp onstage, anybody who attempted to purchase kiwi fruits from the Hulme superstore nearby was asked for ID if they looked like they might be the correct demographic to be a Styles fan.
