Harry Styles knows he could eventually become another No. 1 hit in Taylor Swift’s catalog, but that’s okay with him. That’s just what artists do.
“It would be hypocritical for me to say she couldn’t do it because everybody writes songs based on personal experience,” the 19-year-old told Us Weekly. “I can’t say I’d have dated someone less famous to avoid it.”
“At least she’s a great songwriter!” he adds.
But Styles doesn’t seem to be worried about being turned into music, something that Swift has admitted to doing in the past. He also said he wouldn’t rule out dating another celeb, either.
“I think it’s people, you like people for who they are, so I couldn’t say I want to date someone less famous because of the hassle,” he said. “You like who you like.”
But keeping a relationship healthy when you’re in the spotlight is difficult, he said. “I think relationships are hard enough, so I think you have to completely ignore everything from outside.”
“When you’re in the opening stages of a relationship as it is, you’re still under the pressure of getting to know everything about a person. If you have a lot of people from outside telling you what it is and they don’t even know you, telling you what your relationship is, that’s weird. So I think you sort of have to block it out and just have the relationship rather than think — we’re having this relationship play out on magazine covers.”
Get a pen and paper ready, because this is what Harry Styles is looking for in a woman:
“Someone with a cute laugh and a good smile. Someone you can have fun with — I like someone who’s up for doing stuff in terms of like, trying new things and going out new places. Not just someone who does nothing and wants to sit around.”
