I’m not even going to pretend my Gryles feels aren’t off the chart but I also love the R1 Breakfast Show announcement because of what it says about Harry. The fact he’s speaking to people like Grimmy and Dermot who he’s known since the earliest days of 1D shows he’s loyal to his friends, he’s in control of the decisions being made and even if he might not be around as much he’s not going to forget the people who supported him when he wasn’t such a Big Deal. It’s like, his life has changed beyond recognition and he wears ridiculous shirts worth thousands of dollars, but he can still sit in the R1 studios after being smuggled in virtually incognito and chat to Grimmy on the radio, smiling like he’s always just been there dicking around with the microphones and doing links.
I love that. It also makes me genuinely think whatever we hear in the new single is going to be 100% authentic Harry.
