Fans of boy bands can be a little bit crazy, but Harry Styles proved it by talking about how once his own vomit turned up for sale on eBay back in 2014. The singer said that his vomit being for sale was a really good indication that he’d “made it” in the business.
“My mom actually sent me, like, an eBay link to my own puke, which was very interesting to receive on a Tuesday morning,” he told NPR during a radio interview.
The former One Direction crooner said that he had gone on a long hike and gotten ill. Afterward, a fan rushed to collect the vomit and sold it on eBay. It is unclear whether the sale actually went through, however, as it is illegal to send bodily fluids through the post. Furthermore, eBay has very strict rules regarding the sale of items that have been stained or rubbed with blood or any kind of bodily secretions.
Whoever collected the vomit also created a sign reading “Harry Styles Threw Up Here” with the date etched underneath, 10-12-14. Definitely a day to remember.
Harry Styles has recently launched a solo career after departing the iconic British boy band One Direction. His first single, “Sign of the Times,” got some rather harsh criticism from fellow musicians, especially Oasis band member Noel Gallagher.
He slammed Harry Styles’ new song in an interview with Absolute Radio.
“People of my age have let themselves go, they’re fat, balding idiots with fading tattoos. They sit in their garage and write shite like ‘Sign of the Times’ for Harry Styles. Which, quite frankly, my cat could have written in about 10 minutes!
“I don’t mind the song, my wife was falling over herself, ‘Have you heard Harry Styles’ new song? It’s like Prince’, I was like, ‘Without even hearing it, I can assure you it’s not like Prince!'”
His brother was less caustic about the former pop idol’s song.
“I don’t mind it, man. There’s some interesting bits in it. I mean, I don’t know how it f**king goes, but fair play to him. I’m sure, like, it’s a bigger f**king cost. I’ve got the weight of Oasis still hanging over me and I’m sure I’ll always be that guy from Oasis, so I’m sure he’s carrying an equal weight. If he wants to get out of that pop world and into something with a bit more substance I think that’s a good thing,” Liam Gallagher said.
Harry Styles hasn’t seemed to respond to his music being bashed and instead has been focusing on himself and doing a little charity work on the side. Styles recently phoned up one of the children who attended the Ariana Grande concert and is still in the hospital following the blast.
The young girl, Freya Lewis, had undergone a marathon surgery session to remove shrapnel from her body and had been staying in the pediatric ICU unit of the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.
Freya’s school posted a short blog post about the young girl getting a phone call from one of her favorite musicians.
“Firstly, Freya came around enough from sedation to look at her Dad, blow him a kiss and smile. Then Dad cried. ‘What could surpass that?’ I know you are thinking.
“Secondly, the phone rang, and it was Harry Styles. Freya woke up, Harry said he loved her, she said she loved him, then Dad said he loved him!!
“The PICU unit at Manchester Childrens Hospital has just been given a lift like you can not imagine!
“Harry, we salute you sir, Holmes Chapel [Lewis’s comprehensive school] is very proud of you!!!!”
