Harry Edward Styles (born 1 February 1994) is an English singer. His musical career began in 2010 as part of One Direction, a boy band formed on the British music competition series The X Factor after each member of the band had been eliminated from the solo contest. They became one of the best-selling boy groups of all time before going on an indefinite hiatus in 2016.

Styles released his self-titled debut solo album through Columbia Records in 2017. It debuted at number one in the UK and the US and was one of the world's top-ten best-selling albums of the year, while its lead single, "Sign of the Times", topped the UK Singles Chart. Styles' second album, Fine Line (2019), debuted atop the US Billboard 200 with the biggest ever first-week sales by an English male artist, and was the most recent album to be included in Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums of All Time" in 2020. Its fourth single, "Watermelon Sugar", topped the US Billboard Hot 100. Styles' third album, Harry's House (2022), broke several records and was widely acclaimed, receiving the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 2023. Its lead single, "As It Was", became the number-one song of 2022 globally according to Billboard.

Styles has received various accolades, including six Brit Awards, three Grammy Awards, an Ivor Novello Award, and three American Music Awards. His film roles include Dunkirk (2017), Don't Worry Darling (2022), and My Policeman (2022). Aside from music and acting, Styles is known for his flamboyant fashion. He is the first man to appear solo on the cover of Vogue.

Early life

Styles was born in Redditch, Worcestershire, England,[c][2] the son of landlady[3] Anne Twist (née Selley) and finance worker Desmond "Des" Styles.[4][5][6] When he was a child, he moved with his parents and older sister, Gemma, to the village of Holmes Chapel in Cheshire.[4] His parents divorced when he was seven years old. His mother later married business partner John Cox,[7] although they divorced years later. Through her subsequent marriage in 2013 to Robin Twist, who died of cancer in 2017,[8] Styles gained an older stepbrother named Mike and a stepsister named Amy.[8]

Styles said he had a "great childhood" and was always supported by his parents.[5] As a child, he sang covers on a karaoke machine he was given by his grandfather, and the first song he recorded was Elvis Presley's "The Girl of My Best Friend".[9] Styles attended the Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School,[10] where he was the lead singer for the band White Eskimo, which won a local Battle of the Bands competition.[10][11] At the age of 16, he worked part-time at the W. Mandeville Bakery in Holmes Chapel.[11]

Career

2010–2015: The X Factor and One Direction

Following a suggestion from his mother, on 11 April 2010, Styles auditioned as a solo contestant for the seventh series of the British televised singing competition The X Factor, singing a rendition of Train's "Hey, Soul Sister". After Simon Cowell suggested that the track was not right for him, he instead sang a rendition of Stevie Wonder's "Isn't She Lovely".[5][12] He advanced to bootcamp but failed to progress further. Four others in his age group who were also eliminated were put together to form a band in July 2010 to compete in the "Groups" category, mentored by Cowell.[13] The group consisting of Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Zayn Malik practised for two weeks;[14][15] Styles suggested the name One Direction to his bandmates, and they agreed to keep it.[16] They began to gain considerable popularity in the UK,[17] and within the first four weeks of the live shows, were Cowell's last act in the competition.[18] The group eventually reached the final of The X Factor and finished in third place.[19]

Styles during the Where We Are Tour in 2014

In January 2011, One Direction signed a recording contract with Cowell's label Syco Records.[20][21] Their UK number one debut single, "What Makes You Beautiful", and their debut studio album, Up All Night, were released later that year.[22][23] The album, which contained three songs co-written by Styles, made One Direction the first British group to have their debut album reach number one in the United States.[24][25] Their four succeeding studio albums—Take Me Home (2012), Midnight Memories (2013), Four (2014) and Made in the A.M. (2015)—all debuted at number one in the UK.[26] Midnight Memories was the world's best-selling album of 2013,[27] and its accompanying Where We Are Tour was the highest-grossing tour of 2014 and remains the highest-grossing tour of all time by a vocal group.[28] After the release of Four, One Direction became the only group in the 58-year history of the Billboard 200 albums chart to have their first four albums debut at number one.[29] The albums spawned a string of successful singles, including "Live While We're Young", "Little Things", "Best Song Ever", "Story of My Life", "Drag Me Down" and "History".[30][31][32] Styles also co-wrote the song "Just a Little Bit of Your Heart" for Ariana Grande's 2014 album My Everything.[33]

Not wanting to "exhaust" the fan base, upon Styles' suggestion, the band went on an indefinite hiatus in 2016, after completing promotional activities related to Made in the A.M.[5][34][35] Since their debut, One Direction have sold 70 million records worldwide, including 7.6 million albums and 26 million singles in the US, becoming one of the best-selling boy bands of all time.[31][36][37] The group amassed numerous accolades, including seven Brit Awards,[38] seven American Music Awards,[39] six Billboard Music Awards,[40] and four MTV Video Music Awards.[41] While Styles has been generally positive about his time in One Direction, he has revealed that the hyper-visibility he experienced while being in the band was not always easy to deal with.[42] Styles attributed his avoidance of social media to past pressure that he should be constantly accessible online.[42][43] He has spoken about being scared of saying the wrong things in interviews and of fear that not answering questions such as the number of people he slept with would cause journalists to leave the interview annoyed with him.[42] His contracts with One Direction contained "cleanliness clauses" which stated that they would be "null and void" if he did not obey them[...].[42] He expressed that he "burst into tears" when he signed a solo contract without these clauses because he felt "free."[42]

2016–2018: Harry Styles and Dunkirk

As a solo artist, Styles joined Jeffrey Azoff's Full Stop Management and talent agency CAA, signing a recording contract with Columbia Records in the first half of 2016.[44][45] Around this time, he also launched his own record label, Erskine Records.[44] Recording for Styles's debut album occurred throughout 2016 in Los Angeles, London and Port Antonio, Jamaica, where Styles and his collaborators had a two-month writing retreat in the autumn.[5] In March 2017, he announced that his first solo single, "Sign of the Times", would be released on 7 April.[46] The song peaked at number one on the UK Singles Chart and number four on the Billboard Hot 100.[47][48] A glam rock-influenced soft rock power ballad,[49][50] it drew comparisons to the work of David Bowie.[51] Rolling Stone ranked "Sign of the Times" as the best song of 2017.[52] Its music video featured Styles flying and walking on water[53][54] and won the Brit Award for British Video of the Year.[55] In April, Styles was a musical guest on Saturday Night Live in the US and made his debut televised solo performance in the UK on The Graham Norton Show.[56][57]

His self-titled debut album was released in May 2017,[58] whereupon it debuted at number one in several countries, including Australia, the UK and the US.[59] The record was influenced by 1970s soft rock and was described by Variety as a "classic cocktail of psychedelia, Britpop, and balladry".[60][61] It received generally favourable reviews from critics[62][63] and was included in several publications' lists of the best albums of 2017.[64][65][66] Harry Styles yielded two more singles, "Two Ghosts" and "Kiwi".[67][68] The film Harry Styles: Behind the Album, which documented the writing and recording process for the album, was released in May exclusively on Apple Music.[69] Styles embarked on his first headlining concert tour, Harry Styles: Live on Tour, from September 2017 through to July 2018, performing in North and South Americas, Europe, Asia, and Australia.[70][71] On tour he debuted two unreleased songs, 'Anna' and Medicine,"[72]

Styles made his feature film debut in Christopher Nolan's war film Dunkirk, in July 2017, playing a British soldier named Alex in the Dunkirk evacuation during World War II.[73] He appeared alongside an ensemble cast which included Fionn Whitehead, Tom Glynn-Carney, Jack Lowden, Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance, and Tom Hardy.[74] Styles won the part over "thousands of young men";[75] Nolan later admitted he was unaware of the extent of Styles' fame and that he was cast "because he fit the part wonderfully and truly earned a seat at the table".[76][77] The Daily Telegraph film critic Robbie Collin praised Styles for his "bright, convicted, and unexpectedly not-at-all-jarring performance".[78]

In November 2017, BBC One broadcast Harry Styles at the BBC, a one-hour television special presented by Nick Grimshaw.[79] Later that month, he performed at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show held in Shanghai.[80] At 2017 ARIA Music Awards, Styles received the Best International Artist award.[81] He guest-hosted The Late Late Show with James Corden in December.[82] Together with Jack Antonoff and Ilsey Juber, Styles co-wrote "Alfie's Song (Not So Typical Love Song)", performed by the band Bleachers, for the soundtrack of the film Love, Simon (2018).[83] He also served as an executive producer on the CBS sitcom Happy Together, which premiered in October 2018 and was inspired by his time living with television producer Ben Winston and his wife.[84] In 2018, Styles began modelling for the Italian fashion house Gucci, appearing in several campaigns for the brand.[85][86]

2019–2021: Fine Line

In July 2019, it was reported that Styles was in early talks to play Prince Eric in the live-action Disney film, The Little Mermaid.[87] However, he ultimately turned the part down for various reasons which included touring and wanting to pursue darker, non-musical roles.[88][89][90] The part ultimately went to Jonah Hauer-King.[91] "Lights Up", the lead single from Styles's second album, Fine Line, was released in October 2019, debuting at number three in the UK.[92][93] The song featured a "soft-touch re-entry into the pop slipstream", according to music writer Jon Caramanica.[94] Styles served as both host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live in November.[95] The second single preceding Fine Line, "Adore You", was released in December, peaking at number seven in the UK and at number six in the US.[96][97][98] That month, Styles again guest-hosted The Late Late Show with James Corden.[99]

Fine Line was released on 13 December. The album was recorded at the Shangri-La studio in Malibu, California with the same production team behind Styles's debut album and featured a similar sound to Harry Styles while also incorporating elements of funk and soul.[100][101] It received generally positive reviews from critics.[102] The album peaked at number two in the UK[103] and topped the US charts, breaking the record as the biggest sales debut from an English male artist in the US since Nielsen SoundScan began electronically tracking sales data in 1991.[104] Rolling Stone ranked it at number 491 in their 2020 list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time".[105] Five other singles, "Falling", "Watermelon Sugar", "Golden", "Treat People with Kindness" and the title track, were released from the album.[106] "Watermelon Sugar" became Styles's fourth UK top-ten single, peaking at number four,[107] as well as his first number-one single in the US.[108] A tour to support Fine Line, entitled Love On Tour, which was originally set to take place throughout 2020,[109] was postponed until 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[110][111]

At the 2020 Brit Awards, Styles was nominated for British Male Solo Artist and British Album of the Year.[112] In March 2020, he performed an NPR Tiny Desk concert,[113] and in July, he narrated a bedtime story titled Dream with Me for the relaxation app Calm.[114] Styles co-wrote the song 'Changes' for Cam's album The Otherside[115] Later that year, Styles won the Favorite Pop/Rock Album award for Fine Line at the 48th American Music Awards,[116] the Best International Artist award at the 34th ARIA Music Awards,[117] and the Chart Achievement Award at the 27th Billboard Music Awards.[118] He was also named Variety's Hitmaker of the Year.[119] At the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards in March 2021, he received three nominations for Best Pop Vocal Album (Fine Line), Best Pop Solo Performance ("Watermelon Sugar") and Best Music Video ("Adore You"), winning for Best Pop Solo Performance.[120][121] "Watermelon Sugar" also earned Styles his second Brit Award for British Single of the Year during the 2021 ceremony.[122] After previous postponement, Love On Tour kicked off on 4 September 2021 in Las Vegas.[123] At the 2021 Ivor Novello Awards, "Adore You" won the award for Most Performed Work.[124] Styles made a cameo appearance as Eros / Starfox, brother of Thanos, in the mid-credits scene of the Marvel Cinematic Universe superhero film Eternals, which was released in November 2021.[125] He launched his gender neutral skin and nail care brand, Pleasing, that month.[126]

2022–present: Harry's House and further acting roles

In 2022, Styles achieved critical and commercial success with his third album, Harry's House.[127] Its lead single "As It Was" debuted atop the UK and US charts, becoming his second solo number one single in both countries.[128][129][130] In the US, it became the fourth longest running number-one in the charts history at 15 weeks.[131] The album similarly debuted atop the UK and US charts.[132][133] During its release week, Styles occupied the top spot of the album and singles charts, in both the UK and US, with Harry's House and "As It Was", respectively.[134][135] With four tracks from the album concurrently charting within the US top 10, he became the first British solo artist to achieve this feat.[136] He headlined the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April.[137][138] In June, Styles and his song "Music for a Sushi Restaurant" were featured in a new AirPods commercial for Apple.[139] A music video for Harry's House second single "Late Night Talking" was released on 13 July.[140] Later that month, Harry's House was shortlisted for the Mercury Prize.[141] At the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards, Styles received three accolades, including Album of the Year for Harry's House.[142] Harry's House won Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album at the 65th Grammy Awards,[143] and British Album of the Year at 43rd Brit Awards.[144]

Styles auditioned for the role of Elvis Presley in Baz Luhrmann's musical biopic Elvis. Luhrmann stated that while "Harry is a really talented actor ... the real issue with Harry is, he's Harry Styles. He's already an icon."[145] Styles starred alongside Florence Pugh in the 2022 psychological thriller film Don't Worry Darling, directed by Olivia Wilde.[146][147] Having premiered at the 79th Venice International Film Festival, the film, as well as his performance, received mixed reviews.[148][149] Steph Green, writing for the BBC, noted that "Harry Styles doesn't feel up to the material here, with leaden line delivery and a lack of light and shade making his scenes opposite Pugh fall flat",[150] but some such as Owen Gleiberman were more positive of his performance, writing that "with his popping eyes, floppy shock of hair, and saturnine suaveness, he recalls the young Frank Sinatra as an actor."[151] Also in 2022, Styles starred alongside Emma Corrin in My Policeman, a film adaptation of the 2012 novel of the same name which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.[152][153] At the 2022 TIFF Tribute Awards, the main cast of the film were awarded the TIFF Tribute Award for Performance.[154] Despite this, reviews for the film and his performance were less positive, with Robert Daniels of Roger Ebert.com writing, "Here, Styles' inexperience as a leading man in a weepy British queer period piece is glaring".[155]

In August and September 2022, as part of his Love On Tour, Styles performed 15 sold-out shows at Madison Square Garden. To mark the achievement, a permanent banner was raised in his honor inside the venue. He became the third musical artist in history to have a banner raised at Madison Square Garden, following rock band Phish and artist Billy Joel.[156][157] In November 2022, Gucci released a collaborative collection between Alessandro Michele and Styles, titled "Gucci Ha Ha Ha".[158] At the American Music Awards of 2022, Styles won Favorite Male Pop Artist and Favorite Pop Song.[159] Love On Tour concluded in July 2023 as the then-fourth highest-grossing tour of all time, earning $617.3 million.[160]

Artistry

Musical style and influences

Artists such as David Bowie and Shania Twain have influenced Styles.

Styles's music has been described as pop, pop rock, rock, soft rock, Britpop, new wave, synth-pop and disco, with elements of folk.[161][162][163][164][61][165][166][167] The musical style on his debut solo album was called a "mish-mash of Los Angeles' style classic rock and ballads" by NME,[162] invoking an "intimately emotional Seventies soft-rock vibe" by Rolling Stone, and "synthesis[ing] influences from the last half-century of rock" by Time magazine.[168][169] It was influenced by the artists he grew up listening to, such as Pink Floyd, the Rolling Stones, the Beatles and Fleetwood Mac, as well as the songwriting of Harry Nilsson.[170][171] Styles praised Nilsson's lyrics as being "honest, and so good, and I think it's because he's never trying to sound clever."[171] His second solo album, Fine Line, was seen by NME to have taken, "this nostalgic sound [from his first record] and combined it with soaring pop sensibilities."[172]

Styles said "I think with music it's so important to evolve—and that extends to clothes and videos and all that stuff. That's why you look back at David Bowie with Ziggy Stardust or The Beatles and their different eras—that fearlessness is super inspiring."[173] While making Fine Line he said he kept watching a vintage Bowie clip on his phone, which he used as an inspiring pep talk.[174] He has also cited Freddie Mercury, Elvis Presley, and Paul McCartney (including his side project Wings) as influences, while mentioning Shania Twain as his main inspiration both musically and in fashion.[175][176][177] His favourite album is Astral Weeks by Northern Irish musician Van Morrison, which he called "completely perfect"; he also considers Etta James's album At Last! to be "perfect".[176] Upon listening to Pink Floyd's 1973 album The Dark Side of the Moon as a child, he said he "couldn't really get it, but I just remember being like—this is really fucking cool."[5] Joni Mitchell's 1971 album Blue inspired Styles to contact the album's dulcimer instrumentalist, with whom he worked on Fine Line.[176]

Stage performances

As a solo artist, Styles has chosen to tour as a rock artist with a backing band.[178] He plays acoustic guitar in addition to providing vocals.[179] Lead guitarist Mitch Rowland and drummer and vocalist Sarah Jones have toured with Styles both during Harry Styles: Live on Tour and Love on Tour.[180] Other members of his band have included the bassist/vocalist Elin Sandberg, pianist Niji Adeleye, percussionist and musical director Pauli Lovejoy, multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Ny Oh, bassist Adam Prendergast, pianist Yaffra, keyboardist/vocalist Claire Uchima, and guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist Charlotte Clark.[181] Jade Yamazaki Stewart from the Seattle Times said of the band, "[Love on Tour] felt more like a 1970s rock festival than a 21st-century arena show from an international pop star."[182]

Styles has been seen by critics to be an unusually energetic performer since at least 2015.[183] In a 2015 Rolling Stone review of One Direction's concert at MetLife Stadium, Rob Sheffield said, "It's like watching the footage of Secretariat running the Belmont Stakes in 1973 — he's 31 lengths ahead of the other horses, but he speeds up madly for the final stretch because he's so in love with being fast."[183] Styles does not party or ingest substances after his shows because he tries to approach performing like an athlete in order to give fans the best show possible.[184] Craig McLean described his onstage physicality for The Face in 2022 as, "stomping, head-banging exuberance" that is "impossible to resist."[185] His stage presence has been likened to that of Freddie Mercury and Mick Jagger,[185][186] while his charisma and playfulness prompted comparisons to Rod Stewart.[187]

Public image

Styles has been referred to as a pop icon[188][189][190] and a fashion icon.[191][192][193] He is considered among the most successful solo artists to emerge from a band.[194][195] Ben Beaumont-Thomas of The Guardian wrote that styles was "a star who has negotiated one of the most difficult transitions in music—from boyband to solo artist—with more panache than even successful forebears such as Justin Timberlake and Robbie Williams." [196] Singer-songwriter Stevie Nicks likened his album Fine Line to Fleetwood Mac's album Rumours and commented that she was inspired by him to write new music and poetry.[197] Forbes noted that with his third album, Harry's House, Styles had racked up more first-week vinyl sales than any previous musician.[198]

Styles inspires his fans to dress up for his concerts, leading Fashionista to call the shows "his fans' Met Gala". Their outfits often include sequins, pink cowboy hats and feather boas,[199][200] and have been featured in Vogue,[201] The New York Times[202] and The New Yorker.[203] Novels inspired by Styles include the After series, Grace and the Fever, and The Idea of You.[204][205][206] The After novels have been filmed,[207] and Anne Hathaway is cast in the upcoming film The Idea of You, an adaption of the novel.[208]

Since One Direction's early years, a group of shipping conspiracy theorist fans, often called "Larries", has been dedicated to proving that Styles and Louis Tomlinson, name blended as "Larry Stylinson", are secretly a couple that has been closeted by a homophobic music industry.[209][210][211] Academics Clare Southerton and Hannah McCann connect the fan group to phenomena like queer reading and slash fiction.[210][212] In 2016, the ship was labeled as "one of the largest elements of the One Direction fandom, which itself is one of the largest fandoms on the internet".[209] The theory, proliferated mainly on social media, has led to online bullying and harassment of Styles's and Tomlinson's friends, familes and girlfriends.[213][209]

Styles is one of the most-followed Twitter users, with over 38 million followers,[214] and has one of the most-followed Instagram accounts in the UK, with over 48 million followers.[215] He is also one of the most streamed artists of all time on Spotify;[216] his song "As It Was" was the most-streamed song of 2022.[217] His' fans are known as Harries.[218] Due to his popularity, he has often been a target of bottling,[219] and has frequently been hit in the groin.[220][221][222][223] He was named the second-most searched musician on Google in 2022, after Taylor Swift.[224] In 2023, it was announced that Texas State University would offer the course “Harry Styles and the Cult of Celebrity: Identity, the Internet and European Pop Culture”.[225] In 2022, Rolling Stone UK named Styles the 'new King of Pop', which drew criticism from Michael Jackson's fans and family members.[226]

Fashion

Styles wore skinny jeans, sheer blouses, floral prints, flamboyant suits and ankle boots while in One Direction.[227][228] Nicole Saunders of Billboard noted that his fashion had "blossomed from a teen wearing purple Jack Wills hoodies to a carefully executed blend of '70s rock with a glamorous magpie feel" over the course of the group's five-year stint.[229] Regarding Styles's time in One Direction, AllMusic writer Tim Sendra opined that his "charming persona and elastic vocals had him positioned as the Timberlake of the group."[230] Entertainment Weekly's Leah Greenblatt described him as "a dimpled, rakish prankster happy to wear the mantle of Class Clown".[231] During the band's 2014 Four era, Styles began collaborating with stylist Harry Lambert.[232] In 2016, he was featured in Another Man magazine,[233] after which Anne T. Donahue of The Guardian labelled him an "artthrob" who offers "something other than token shirtlessness" and telegraphs "an allegiance to the niche worlds of art and fashion rather than aiming for mainstream notoriety."[234] Billboard's Chris Payne opined that Styles' "vibe has always screamed rock star."[235]

As a solo artist, Styles has opted for "candyfloss" custom pink suits, sequined tops, printed satin flares and a Gucci-heavy aesthetic.[227] Vanity Fair's Erika Harwood stated that Styles went from "boy-bander" to "luxury suit connoisseur" in describing his change in style.[236] His style was noted as "flamboyant", "fashion-forward" and "fun".[237] Citing his use of the colour pink, Styles quoted English musician and The Clash's bassist Paul Simonon in a Rolling Stone interview: "Pink is the only true rock & roll colour."[5] Ann Powers of NPR wrote that his fashion recalls the Spice Girls' "theatrical parade through pop's sartorial heritage" and that he "comforts with fashion's way of telling stories through artful accessories."[164]

Gucci dress worn by Styles on the cover of Vogue on display at the V&A Museum

Styles began wearing sweater vests, baggy high-waisted pants and pearl necklaces in 2019,[238] which prompted Jacob Gallagher of The Wall Street Journal to call him the "popularizer of the manly pearl necklace."[239] Tom Lamont of The Guardian noted that some of Styles' fashion choices have contributed to "an important political discussion about gendered fashion."[240] In 2020, Styles became the first man to appear solo on the cover of Vogue, for its December issue.[241] Right-wing commentators criticised him for wearing a blue Gucci dress on the cover;[242][243] Candace Owens demanded that society must "Bring back manly men",[244] and Ben Shapiro of The Daily Wire called the cover "a referendum on masculinity for men to don floofy dresses."[245] Styles responded to the criticism by saying "To not wear [something] because it's females' clothing, you shut out a whole world of great clothes" and that "what's exciting about right now is you can wear what you like" as lines "are becoming more and more blurred."[246] The decision to wear a dress, combined with his refusal to label his sexuality, have opened him up to accusations of queerbaiting.[247] In 2022, the Gucci dress he wore on the cover of the magazine was incorporated into a V&A Museum exhibit called "Fashioning Masculinities: The Art of Menswear."[248] Several of Styles' other outfits have been displayed in museums, including a blue velvet suit in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and a leather suit in the Grammy Museum at L.A. Live.[249][250]

Styles frequently spotlights the work of small designers.[42][251][252][253][254][255] During lockdown, a JW Anderson cardigan that Styles wore in a 2020 rehearsal for Today went viral on TikTok as Anderson provided the pattern for free online.[256] The V&A Museum acquired the cardigan in November 2020, calling the viral craze a "cultural phenomenon that speaks to the power of creativity and social media in bringing people together in times of extreme adversity."[256]

Having won the British Style Award at the 2013 Fashion Awards,[257] Styles placed fourth on British GQ's 2018 list of 50 best-dressed men, in which fashion designer Michael Kors deemed him "the modern embodiment of British rocker style: edgy, flamboyant and worn with unapologetic swagger."[258] In 2020, he was voted GQ's "Most Stylish Man of the Year".[259] Styles was also ranked first and fifth on British Vogue's "The 50 Fittest Boys" list in 2016 and 2017, respectively,[260][261] and was voted the "Sexiest Male in Pop" for three consecutive years between 2016 and 2018 in a poll by British radio network Capital.[262][263][264] In 2020 he was named the most influential man in fashion.[265]

Personal life

Styles divides his time between two homes in North London. He previously lived above the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles[266] but sold his home there when he became "disillusioned" with the city.[267] He also owns a loft apartment in Manhattan.[268] At the beginning of his career, he lived in the attic of producer Ben Winston's home in Hampstead Heath, London, for 20 months while he looked for his own house.[5]

Styles believes in karma. When Chelsea Handler asked him if he believed in God, he said he considered himself "more spiritual than religious", and that it was "naïve to say nothing exists and there's nothing above us or more powerful than us."[269] In a 2020 interview with Vogue, he said that he practiced pilates and meditated daily.[270] He also attends therapy regularly.[42]

In the same interview, he said that he followed a pescatarian diet.[271] In 2022, when fans started throwing chicken nuggets on stage during a concert and chanted that he should eat one, he told them, "I don't eat chicken, sorry. I don't eat meat," earning him PETA's 2022 Best Viral Moment for Animals Award.[272] Styles confirmed in 2017 that he has polythelia, a condition where a person has more than two nipples.[273]

In May 2019, Styles was named second on the Sunday Times Rich List of musicians in the UK under 30, with an estimated net worth of £58 million; he was third on the previous year's list, with an estimated net worth of £50 million.[274][275] He maintained his second-place position in 2020 and 2021, with estimated net worths of £63 million and £75 million, respectively.[276][277] He topped the list in 2022 as the richest musician under 30 in the UK, with an estimated net worth of £100 million.[278] In 2023, he was estimated to be worth £150 million, and shared 13th position in a new list, "35 Richest People Under 35 in the UK".[279]

Tattoos

Styles is heavily tattooed, having got his first one at 18 years old; the most prominent is a large butterfly on his sternum.[280] He got tattooed on television as a dare on The Late Late Show with James Corden.[281] His tattoos include the Green Bay Packers logo,[282] swallows, "NY, LA, LDN", a padlock tattooed on him by Ed Sheeran, "never gonna dance again" (lyrics from the song "Careless Whisper" by George Michael), Brasil!, a naked mermaid, the cover art of the album The Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd, his parents' birth years and various other tattoos related to family members, and a tiny cross.[283]

Relationships

From November 2011 to January 2012, 17-year-old Styles dated television presenter Caroline Flack; their relationship stirred controversy, as she was 14 years older.[284] He briefly dated American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift later in 2012,[285] leading to fan and media speculation about them writing songs about each other after their breakup.[5] From 2017 to 2018, Styles was in a relationship with French-American model Camille Rowe, who inspired his 2019 album Fine Line.[286][287][288] From January 2021 to November 2022, he was in a relationship with actress and director Olivia Wilde.[289][290][291] Rolling Stone said in 2022 that "If Styles is already held up to a high standard, his potential partners are held to an unreachable one for some of his fans."[292]

Sexuality

Interviewed have repeatedly asked Styles about his sexual orientation since he was 19 years old.[42][240][293][294][295] When British GQ asked him in 2013 whether he was bisexual, he replied, "Bisexual? Me? I don't think so. I'm pretty sure I'm not."[293] In 2017, when asked if he labeled his sexuality, he said, "No, I've never felt the need to, really. I don't feel like it's something I've ever felt like I have to explain about myself."[296]

When The Guardian in 2019 questioned the authenticity of his flamboyant dressing style and his perceived sexual ambiguity, he said:

Am I sprinkling in nuggets of sexual ambiguity to try and be more interesting? No. ... In terms of how I wanna dress, and what the album sleeve's gonna be, I tend to make decisions in terms of collaborators I want to work with. I want things to look a certain way. Not because it makes me look gay, or it makes me look straight, or it makes me look bisexual, but because I think it looks cool. And more than that, I dunno, I just think sexuality's something that's fun. Honestly? I can't say I've given it any more thought than that.[240]

In a 2022 interview with Better Homes and Gardens, Styles said that the expectation that he should publicly label his sexual orientation was "outdated": "I've been really open with it with my friends, but that's my personal experience; it's mine . . . The whole point of where we should be heading, which is toward accepting everybody and being more open, is that it doesn't matter, and it's about not having to label everything, not having to clarify what boxes you're checking."[42]

Philanthropy and advocacy

In 2013, Styles and fellow One Direction member Liam Payne became ambassadors for the cancer charity Trekstock, raising over US$800,000 through the online fundraising platform Prizeo.[297][298] When the Westboro Baptist Church picketed a One Direction concert in 2013,[299] Styles spoke up on Twitter, responding that he "believes in equal rights for everyone".[299] In 2014, Styles joined LGBT rights charity Stonewall's #FirstSnog campaign in celebration of their 25th anniversary[300] and showed support for Michael Sam, the first openly gay player drafted by an NFL team, by wearing his jersey onstage during One Direction's concert in St. Louis.[301] Styles regularly waves pride flags thrown on stage by fans at concerts[302][303][304] and he assists fans with coming out publicly during sections of the show where he engages in banter with the audience.[305][306][307][308] LGBT fans have referred to Styles' concerts as "a safe space".[309] Some of his lesbian and bisexual fans have called him a "lesbian icon".[303][310] He received a Gay Times Honour for LGBTQ Advocate.[311]

In 2014, Styles endorsed Emma Watson's HeForShe gender equality campaign.[312] In 2015, he sponsored water wells in India via Drop4Drop in support of Life Water's World Water Day campaign.[313] The following year, he donated his hair to the UK charity Little Princess Trust, which supplies and funds wigs made of real hair to children who have hair loss as a result of illnesses.[314] In May 2017, to celebrate the release of his debut album, he played intimate shows at The Garage in London and at the Troubadour in Los Angeles, with all proceeds benefiting charities.[315] That October, he performed at CBS Radio's We Can Survive concert at the Hollywood Bowl for breast cancer awareness.[316] Styles's first tour raised US$1.2 million in charity donations from ticket sales, Live Nation's contributions, and GLSEN's Pride campaign toward 62 charities around the world, while his second tour raised US$1 million for its charity partners Physicians for Reproductive Health, Black Voters Matter and Choose Love, as well as local efforts including aid for food insecure families in need during the holidays. Both tours also promoted water conservation via recycling and reducing plastic water bottle usage.[317][318][319]

In 2018, his online store sold T-shirts with the slogan "Treat People with Kindness" in a rainbow print for Pride Month, with profits benefiting GLSEN.[320] That year, Styles also tweeted in support of the March for Our Lives petition,[321] and added "Black Lives Matter" and "End Gun Violence" stickers to his guitar.[322] Styles identifies as a feminist.[174] In December 2019, in response to an interview question about not using his influence more often to support specific causes, Styles stated:

Because of dilution. Because I'd prefer, when I say something, for people to think I mean it. To be honest, I'm still searching for that one thing, y'know. Something I can really stand up for, and get behind, and be like: This Is My Life Fight. There's a power to doing the one thing. You want your whole weight behind it.[240]

On the impact of events such as Brexit, the Black Lives Matter movement and Donald Trump's presidency on his song "Sign of the Times", he said that "We're in a difficult time, and I think we’ve been in many difficult times before. But we happen to be in a time where things happening around the world are absolutely impossible to ignore. I think it would’ve been strange to not acknowledge what was going on at all."[323] Styles leans to the political left, and he visited the House of Lords in 2016 to attend a debate on Brexit following an invitation by Labour peer Lord Winston.[324][325] Regarding Brexit, he stated that "anything that brings people together is better than things that pull people apart" and stated that it symbolises "the opposite of the world [he] would like to be in."[5][326]

In light of the murder of George Floyd in May 2020, Styles showed support for Black Lives Matter, urging fans to share and donate in support, and pledged to donate to a bail fund for arrested Black Lives Matter activists.[327][328] He attended a Los Angeles Black Lives Matter protest the following month.[329] Despite being a British citizen, Styles endorsed Joe Biden in the 2020 United States presidential election.[330] On 2 June 2022, Styles announced he was donating his appearance fee from Apple's AirPods' spatial audio campaign to the International Rescue Committee, a global humanitarian aid organization that is responding to the more than six million refugees being forced to flee Ukraine.[331]

Treat People with Kindness

"Treat People with Kindness", abbreviated to "TPWK", is a slogan used by Styles to promote his message of love, acceptance, and kindness to others.[332] He began using the slogan during his debut concert tour in 2017 on a badge on his guitar and tour merchandise, including Pride T-shirts sold to raise funds for GLSEN.[333][334] In a December 2019 interview, he said, "It was a pin I had on my guitar strap and we made T-shirts for it, then I saw a lot of T-shirts around. I'd be driving or something and see someone in one and I started feeling like, 'Oh this is a bit of a thing'". The initiative gave him the idea to write a song based on the slogan, the penultimate track on his second studio album, Fine Line.[335]

In October 2019, teaser posters including the phrase "Do you know who you are?" and the acronym "TPWK" were seen in London, Tokyo, Los Angeles, New York and Australia. Fans were able to connect the posters to Styles and his new album release because of the reference to his "Treat People with Kindness" motto.[336][337][338] At the same time, to mark World Mental Health Day, Styles launched a website bot called "Do You Know Who You Are?" that gave users positive randomised messages using words such as 'bright', 'determined', 'loving' and 'wonderful', and ending with "TPWK. LOVE, H".[338][339]
