Fixes fan’s grammar

Music Performance

At a concert in Philadelphia, Styles motions for a fan’s banner reading ‘Hi Harry. Your so nice’ to be handed to him. He takes out a pen and adds the missing apostrophe and letter ‘e’ to make it ‘You’re so nice’. He then holds up the corrected sign to show fans.

Thank you for signing my poster and correcting my grammar!!

Styles ‘never more than a crush’


Three years after the end of their romance, Swift has put Styles into the past. Source:

Taylor once thought she loved Harry, but since getting to know Calvin [Harris], she’s realised that Harry was never really more than a crush. The relationship was not nearly as serious as she thought it was at the time. Taylor was more than happy to delete Harry’s number. Calvin’s made her realize that boys like Harry are toxic for her and given her the confidence to cut him out of her life for good. She’s determined to show Calvin she’s serious about him and wants him to feel as secure as she does.

Jack Whitehall: Styles’ Hair Smells Like Sex

TV host Jack Whitehall tells Heat magazine that he met Harry at James Cordon’s wedding.

I was a bit drunk and I grabbed him and I sort of hugged him, smelled his hair and then one of his management ushered me away. But I got a picture and that’s all that counted. His hair smells like the first leaves of autumn, that really fresh smell. And sex.
