Harry Styles On Taylor Swift: One Direction Star Avoids Breakup Drama, Says Taylor’s A Great Performer

Harry Styles had some polite words on Taylor Swift, deflecting questions about their failed relationship and instead praising her performance at the 2013 Grammy Awards.

The 19-year-old One Direction star talked with Capital FM about his split with Taylor Swift, speaking for the first time since their relationship ended early this year.

Though he had a chance to spill some dirt about the relationship that ended with a blowout fight while on a New Year’s Day vacation to the British Virgin Islands, Harry Styles was quiet on Taylor Swift gossip.

“I understand why people would want to know stuff like that, I get it. If someone does stuff like that then I want to know about it, too,” Harry Styles said about the interest in their relationship. “I guess it just kind of. . . It is what it is, I guess.”

In fact, Harry Styles said some good things about Taylor‘s performance at the Grammy’s, Just Jared noted.

“She’s a great performer and she always performs great. She’s always good on the stage. She’s been doing it a long time. She knows what she’s doing on stage. It was just another good Taylor Swift performance. It was good.”

There has been speculation that the short-lived relationship will become song fodder for Swift, who has used heartbreaks from John Mayer and Jake Gylenhaal to reportedly pen breakup songs. In fact, Hollywood Life reported that Taylor Swift has already written five breakup songs about Styles.

Though it sounds like fans of One Direction won’t be hearing any breakup songs from Harry Styles on Taylor Swift.
