Here’s why the Sunday Independent Life Magazine changed covers from the one that was reblogged earlier (blue suit):
They clearly think Harry Styles is going to be a big star. We had to be approved by his people to run today’s interview with him [NOTE: IT’S THE ROLLING STONE FEATURE, NOT AN EXCLUSIVE]. We were told it would have to be a cover feature, and we were told pictures would need to be run by them for approval.
Then it got a bit more surreal. We were told, in fact, that Harry’s people would not be approving any pictures we could source. So we said grand, could they give us pictures? Well no, because they don’t have any pictures they can give us. So it needs to be a cover and they won’t approve any pictures, but they have no pictures they can give us to use.
We are running the interview anyway because we think it’s a great read and we know a lot of you are interested in Harry. And sorry there aren’t more nice pictures. We had lots of nice ones to use, but they wouldn’t let us.
