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 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.

Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson , Niall Horan - **Strictly embargoed until 00.01 BST Tuesday 1st September** One Direction today (Tuesday 1st September) premiered the action/1D film, 'Dear World Leaders', a three minute, one-of-a-kind emotive and powerful film composed of hundreds of fan submissions describing the world they want to live in. The film, in support of the action/1D campaign, directly calls on world leaders to listen to the changes they want to see made, to make the world a better place for this generation and the next. Harry Styles said: "We've been overwhelmed by the fans' response to action/1D. They continue to amaze us with their passion and dedication, and this film goes to show how engaged they are in the issues that affect them. It's been inspiring to see and hear what matters to them and the world they want to live in." Niall Horan said: "We've had fans from all over the world tell us what matters to them, from equal rights for all to the eradication of poverty, I really hope world leaders take notice of what we and our fans are saying. Hillary Clinton tweeted us her support of action/1D last month - I'm hoping President Obama watches it next!" One Direction is now calling on the public to share the 'Dear World Leaders' film on social media, alongside the hashtag #action1D. The film will also be broadcast in front of thousands of fans at each of the remaining legs of the band's On The Road Again Tour. One Direction launched the action/1D campaign on 8th July. Since then, nearly 80,000 submissions of photos and videos calling out for change were received from 172 countries. The hashtag #action1D has seen a reach of 2.5 billion so far, and trended worldwide on Twitter for 11 hours following the launch of the project in July. The action/1D campaign is part of action/2015, a global citizens' movement which is united by the idea that 2015 can be the year when the world can set the agenda to end extreme poverty, tackle inequality and climate change - but on - London, United Kingdom - Monday 31st August 2015
