Wise GuyHarry Styles on Music, Fans and Life Goals

Words by Rob Chilton

The ex-One Direction singer turned solo star ponders life’s big questions.

On Songwriting: 

“I find writing to be very therapeutic. It’s when I allow myself to be most vulnerable. It’s exciting to share a piece of me that I don’t feel like I’ve put out there before.”

On One Direction:

“I loved it. The band changed my life and gave me everything.”

On Goals:

“At the beginning, all I wanted was to be the grandad with the best stories and the best shelf of artefacts and bits and trinkets.”

On Filming Dunkirk:

“It was hard, man, physically really tough, I’d sleep really well at night, then get up and continue drowning.”

On Depth in Music:

“My favourite artists’ songs aren’t the ones where they’re talking about how great their life is. You want to know why they chose to be alone somewhere, that’s the stuff that makes you feel something. That’s way more interesting than them telling me they had champagne for dinner.”

On Female Fans:

“Who’s to say that young girls who like pop music have worse musical taste than a 30-year-old hipster guy? That’s not up to you to say. Teenage girl fans – they don’t lie. If they like you, they’re there.”

On Heroes:

“With an artist like Prince all you wanted to do was know more. That mystery is why those people are so magical.”

On The World:

“The state of the world at the moment, it’s a time when it’s easy to feel incredibly sad about a lot of things. It’s also nice sometimes to remember that while there’s a lot of bad stuff, there’s also a lot of amazing people doing amazing things in the world.”
