The Taylor Swift and Harry Styles dating rumor started after an interview in which 1D rib their bandmate about the country singer. Turns out, they exchanged numbers after meeting at the Kids Choice Awards in the U.S. ”We met in American and she’s very nice.” But he kept relatively mum when the Herald Sun interviewer prodded for more.
Styles and his bandmate Zayn Malik were both interviewed while in Sydney, Australia, where the clear focus was on dating.
Styles admitted in the interview that he has a thing for older woman. First there was Caroline Flack, the Xtra Factor co-host he dated, who happens to be 14 years older than him. Reportedly, when he was in Australia he was turned down by an engaged journalist named Elle Halliwell, who’s seven years older. Then this whole Taylor Swift thing? Well, she’s technically his senior too, even though she’s only 22.
Luckily for Styles, Simon Cowell didn’t impose a “love ban” on the members of the group. He and Malik made sure to shoot down those rumors.
“Not true. It would have been a bit rough,” Malik said. “We work hard and we play hard, so that would have been a bit rough.
”We’re normal guys. If we find a girl attractive… if you meet a girl you meet a girl. If you exchange numbers then whatevs..”
And as for the name change? The two guys say they’re not really sure what’s happening but they refuse to change the name One Direction just because another band in the U.S. has the same title.
“We’re not changing our name. We don’t know what’s going to happen but we’re not changing our name.” [Source]
