Harry Styles Addresses Taylor Swift Romance For The First Time

'Certain things don’t work out. There’s a lot of things that can be right, and it’s still wrong.'

Harry Styles has broken his silence on his brief relationship with Taylor Swift, in a new interview to promote his forthcoming solo album.

The former One Direction singer was reported to be dating Taylor for a short spell at the end of 2012, after they were photographed together in London.

He is also thought to have inspired the lyrics to songs on her most recent album, ‘1989’, including ‘Out Of The Woods’, ‘I Know Places’ and, perhaps most significantly, ‘Style’.

Since breaking up with Harry, Taylor has dated DJ and music producer Calvin Harris and, more recently, ‘The Night Manager’ star Tom Hiddleston, who recently gave his side of their relationship in an interview similarly candid to Harry’s.

Meanwhile, Harry was thought to have alluded to his time with Taylor in the One Direction song ‘Perfect’, on which he is credited as a co-writer.
