Harry Styles: Singer Opens Up About Famous Flings, Honest New LP
One Direction's Harry Styles goes deep on love, family and his heartfelt new solo debut in our revealing feature.

January 2016. There’s a bench at the top of Primrose Hill, in London, that looks out over the skyline of the city. If you’d passed by it one winter night, you might have seen him sitting there. A lanky guy in a wool hat, overcoat and jogging pants, hands thrust deep into his pockets. Harry Styles had a lot on his mind. He had spent five years as the buoyant fan favorite in One Direction; now, an uncertain future stretched out in front of him. The band had announced an indefinite hiatus. The white noise of adulation was gone, replaced by the hushed sound of the city below.

The fame visited upon Harry Styles in his years with One D was a special kind of mania. With a self-effacing smile, a hint of darkness and the hair invariably described as “tousled,” he became a canvas onto which millions of fans pitched their hopes and dreams. Hell, when he pulled over to the side of the 101 freeway in L.A. and discreetly threw up, the spot became a fan shrine. It’s said the puke was even sold on eBay like pieces of the Berlin Wall. Paul McCartney has interviewed him. Then there was the unauthorized fan-fiction series featuring a punky, sexed-up version of “Harry Styles.” A billion readers followed his virtual exploits. (“Didn’t read it,” comments the nonfiction Styles, “but I hope he gets more than me.”)

But at the height of One D–mania, Styles took a step back. For many, 2016 was a year of lost musical heroes and a toxic new world order. For Styles, it was a search for a new identity that began on that bench overlooking London. What would a solo Harry Styles sound like? A plan came into focus. A song cycle about women and relationships. Ten songs. More of a rock sound. A bold single-color cover to match the working title: Pink. (He quotes the Clash’s Paul Simonon: “Pink is the only true rock & roll colour.”) Many of the details would change over the coming year – including the title, which would end up as Harry Styles – but one word stuck in his head.

Cat Whispering 101

People talk about “cat whispering” as though befriending cats is some mystical in-born talent, but really, the secret to cat whispering is to stop whispering and start listening to the cat.

If you want to expand a cat’s boundaries, you have to push them slowly and watch the cat for any sign of discomfort, e.g. wide eyes, unblinking eye contact, tense body. (That’s also a list of things you need to not do lest the cat think you are uncomfortable and therefore unpredictable.) If the cat starts looking uncomfy, stop what you’re doing. Don’t backpedal – this can be alarming if it’s sudden, and you still want to be making progress – just don’t push any further. So if you’re petting the cat and it tenses up when you get near its face, don’t retract your hand; keep petting the cat, but don’t try to pet its head again. 

Recognizing discomfort in cats takes some practice, so if you overstep your bounds and the cat lashes out, back off calmly and let it have whatever space it needs. Chances are it will come back after it’s had a few minutes to chill, or will settle at a distance that feels safer. Don’t push any more that day.

This approach teaches the cat that you’re going to respect its boundaries – that you’ll listen when it tells you “no” – and that you’re not going to react badly when it asserts those boundaries. That establishes trust. Once the cat knows it can trust you, it will be a lot more open to unfamiliar things because it knows you won’t abruptly push it way out of its comfort zone.

And then congrats, you have “whispered” a cat! You are now a cat whisperer. Please use these powers only for good and share pictures of all the cool cats you meet.

The songs range from full-on rock (“Kiwi”) to intricate psychedelic pop (“Meet Me in the Hallway”) to the outright confessional (“Ever Since New York,” a desperate meditation on loss and longing). The lyrics are full of details and references – secrets whispered between friends, doomed declarations of love, empty swimming pools – sure to set fans scrambling for the facts behind the mystery.

Gemini things

Over the years I have observed many things about Geminis (being a Gemini myself and being friends with a few) here is a list of things I noticed that we all do

Get attached very quickly but go into denial about it

Overthink even the smallest of things

Ungodly blunt

Sharp mouths that only come out when they are done with someone’s bullshit

Masters at hiding their feelings

When they work themselves up they tend to hyperventilate

Very protective

Fans of the silent treatment or short answers when mad

Do not open up until they are 100% sure they are comfortable with you

Observers that understand everything but are sometimes the densest people in the room

If you like them you have to tell them they will not get it

They won’t admit it but they like to be cuddled and loved in excessive amounts

Geminis are NOT two faced. They simply see both sides of the situation

They are actually very sensitive and things you say will hurt them

If you wrong a Gemini they will never forget it

They will stand up for what they believe in

They don’t know when to pick their battles

They hate slow thing and are distracted easily

Once they fall in love that’s it, there is no going back until something truly horrific happens

They have problems expressing themselves

A Gemini isn’t used to hearing positive things about themselves. They almost constantly bring themselves down mentally

Geminis constantly shower people with affection and positive things but don’t understand how people can do the same for them

They give out mixed signals without realizing it

They often are mistaken for having mood swings. They actually change mental directions so fast people mistake them as mood changes

Once a Gemini stops caring about you; you’ve lost them for good.

They notice little things

They love to laugh and have the most obnoxious laughs out there

Death glares that can kill

Best way to their heart: make them laugh

Dating wise: are attracted to people who can handle themselves

Will not be controlled

Likes deep conversations

Have problems sleeping

When in a relationship they love the late night talks, secret whispers or just conversations with their partner in general
