One Direction member Harry Styles has responded to an absurd hoax cover that mocked the National Examiner about an alleged affair with President Barack Obama. The hoax story first appeared in a doctored National Examiner cover that gained enough traction that reporters at the BBC Music Awards asked the star to clarify the hoax report.
The story’s title read “Obama had sex with THIS MAN” with an arrow pointed at the star.

Metro provided the real tabloid cover featuring President Barack Obama, and the only thing that was changed is the photo of the man, who is not Harry Styles.
According to E! the One Direction star was actually clueless about the hoax report.
“I honestly have no idea what you’re talking about. I’ve heard some good ones in my time, but that’s interesting.”
Styles wasn’t alone in addressing the bogus cover. Harry Styles’ band mates also got in on the fun.
Liam and Louis joked about the cover, with Liam saying, “Wow, it’s all getting a bit political!”
Louis responded, “So, does that give you some power in the White House then?”
Harry Styles is usually in the papers for his love life. Back in October, Hollywood Life ran a story that the singer can’t wait to have a serious girlfriend. With his last girlfriend being Taylor Swift, Styles is really to settle back down again.
According to a source, the singer is tired of hearing about him and Taylor, even though they’ve been over and done with for a while now.
“Harry keeps hearing people talk about him and Taylor and he hates it. The guys from One Direction are making fun of him about it as well and it’s making him feel uncomfortable, so he can’t wait until he has a serious girlfriend. It won’t be easy, but Harry feels it will get all the talk about him getting back together with Taylor or liking Taylor out of people’s minds.”

As the Inquisitr reported, fans really want Emma Watson and Harry Styles as an item after the two posed together at a recent awards ceremony. Maybe Styles will keep it in mind now that Watson is recently single?
