Harry Styles Finally Opens Up About His Relationship With Taylor Swift: "Certain Things Don't Work Out"
2017 is just the gift that keeps on giving when it comes to Harry, isn't it?
Among all of the music, One Direction and Zayn chat, you'll find a large part of the dissertation worthy interview is about that one really quite public date he went on with Taylor in Central Park, and the chaos that ensued.
"When I see photos from that day," he says, "I think: Relationships are hard, at any age. And adding in that you don't really understand exactly how it works when you're 18, trying to navigate all that stuff didn't make it easier.
"I mean, you're a little bit awkward to begin with. You're on a date with someone you really like. It should be that simple, right? It was a learning experience for sure. But at the heart of it – I just wanted it to be a normal date."
UGH. But the interviewer doesn't stop there, bringing up the fact that both Out Of The Woods and Style are clearly about their time together, right?
"I mean, I don't know if they're about me or not ..." he says. "But the issue is, she's so good, they're bloody everywhere.""I write from my experiences; everyone does that. I'm lucky if everything [we went through] helped create those songs. That's what hits your heart. That's the stuff that's hardest to say, and it's the stuff I talk least about. That's the part that's about the two people. I'm never going to tell anybody everything."
Fine, we'll just imagine the rest. But did he ever TELL her he liked the songs?
"Yes and no," he says.. "She doesn't need me to tell her they're great. They're great songs ... It's the most amazing unspoken dialogue ever."
Only he didn't even stop there, as the interview gives him the chance to express what he'd say if he saw Swift today.
"Certain things don't work out. There's a lot of things that can be right, and it's still wrong. In writing songs about stuff like that, I like tipping a hat to the time together. You're celebrating the fact it was powerful and made you feel something, rather than 'this didn't work out, and that's bad.' And if you run into that person, maybe it's awkward, maybe you have to get drunk ... but you shared something. Meeting someone new, sharing those experiences, it's the best shit ever. So thank you."
We're flatlining at this point.
