Fan Account Of The Week: @HSupdating
This week's featured fan account is dedicated to Harry Styles...
With his new single ‘Sign Of The Times’ taking over the world (and our lives) we caught up with the people who run this fan account to find out what it’s like following Mr Styles’ every move.
Read our interview with @HSupdating here…
WHO RUNS THE ACCOUNT?
The account is owned and managed by myself, Jada, and my friend Sam. We also have four co-owners (Lucia, Abby, Say, and Theresa) who help out as well.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A FAN OF HARRY STYLES?
I have been a fan of One Direction since the beginning of 2012. Everyone on the account became a fan around the same time if not before.
WHY ARE YOU A FAN OF HARRY STYLES?
We could list so many reasons why we are fans of Harry but I'll try to keep it brief. Besides the music, I definitely think that one of the main reasons we are a fan of Harry is his genuine kindness. He is truly a great person and has such a big heart. He treats others like no one else does and you never hear a bad word being spoken about him. His loyalty to the boys in the band and the fans is also very endearing. He truly cares so much about the fans and makes it known. We also admire his advocacy for the causes that he believes in and how he is not afraid, nor ashamed, to publicly support the causes he does.
HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU DEVOTE TO RUNNING THE ACCOUNT?
I'm not even sure if I could give you an exact estimate of how much time we dedicate to running HSUpdating. I can tell you it is A LOT of time though. We are always checking Twitter throughout the day and I always check it when I randomly wake up in the middle of the night as well. We are constantly on our phones checking for new updates. We try to make sure our followers are always up to date on Harry.
HAS HARRY STYLES EVER NOTICED THE ACCOUNT? RETWEETED? LIKED? IF SO, WHEN?
Harry's mom noticed our account back in 2016 and we never thought Harry would notice us but he did!! He liked one of our tweets about his birthday charity drive on February 3rd, 2017!
HOW DID THAT MAKE YOU FEEL?
I was the first one to realize he liked our tweet and I was shaking so bad. I wrote our account's group chat and we all just freaked out together! We were so happy because Harry isn't big on social media so to have him like one of our tweets so amazing! He has only liked 31 tweets and one of them is ours so we are extremely grateful for that.
HAVE YOU SEEN HIM PERFORM LIVE WITH ONE DIRECTION? IF SO, HOW MANY TIMES?
Fortunately we have all been lucky enough to see One Direction live at least once if not a number of times. We hope we will all get the chance to see solo Harry live as well!
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE SONG AND WHY?
This is the hardest question a fan of any artist could every be asked. I think my personal favourite is 'If I Could Fly'. It is so vocally mesmerising and I could listen to it on repeat and never get tired of it. There is a part in the song where each boy sings a line one after the other and I get chills every time that part comes on. Our favourite song from Harry as a solo Harry is obviously 'Sign Of The Times'!
WHAT MAKES HARRY STYLES DIFFERENT TO OTHER MALE SOLO ARTISTS?
Just as a performer in the band you could definitely tell he is one of a kind. The energy he gives while performing is unlike anything you will ever experience from another artist. Other than his performance aura I think the depth and passion he puts into the music he writes and performs sets him off from any other male artist around at the moment.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF 'SIGN OF THE TIMES' AND ARE YOU EXCITED FOR HIS DEBUT ALBUM?
We all really love the song! It is so different from what we are used to hearing from Harry but that's what makes it even better. He said himself that Sign Of The Times is the song he is most proud of writing. We can definitely understand why he is proud. We have always been excited for his album to come out but now that we've heard Sign Of The Times, our excitement has been taken to a whole different level. We are extremely excited to hear what awaits us on his album!
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF HARRY BRANCHING OFF INTO ACTING?
It definitely took some time to get used to the thought of Harry as an actor but we believe it is such a phenomenal opportunity and experience for him. He always puts his heart and so much effort into everything he does and judging by the Dunkirk trailer, he definitely didn't stop with acting. We are excited to see more of his acting skills when the movie is released.
ARE THERE OTHER HARRY STYLES FAN ACCOUNTS YOU FOLLOW AND RECOMMEND?
