Harry Styles

Right, so hear us out on this one.

Harry Styles is pretty famous, right?

He's young, good-looking and fairly recognisable wherever he goes.

So how could this 24-year-old have had a serious thing with a French-American model for twelve whole months and us not know anything about it?

More importantly, how did not one paparazzi nab more than one grainy, blurred photo of them leaving an apartment/with a jacket covering one of their heads while getting into a taxi?

I know that there are celeb couples who are extremely low-key.

They're rarely papped, they don't talk about them in interviews and you'd have to be Sherlcok f*cking Holmes to find a trace of their other half in their social media posts. 

But is that what happened here?

Basically, the nub and gist of it all is that Hazza has apparently parted ways with his missus of a year, 28-year-old Camille Rowe.

The sketchy timeline of their relationship goes as follows: they started dating last July, she met his fam in December,and they reportedly rang in 2018 together on New Year's Eve. Hmmm.

Look, I'm not saying it's a PR stunt (because, well, I can't hardly give Harry a ring and ask him, can I?) but it just seems a bit fishy tbh. 

Celeb journo Dan Wooton broke the story for The Sun and he says that Harry, ''called time on their romance just a fortnight after he completed his 89-date world tour.''

That's literally all he revealed so we don't have many hard and fast snippets to piece together. 

So, call me cynical but I just don't buy it.

Nevertheless, Harry, if you're reading this and ever need a shoulder to cry on, I probably (definitely) wouldn't say no.

You’ll be surprised by the number of movies that have actually been inspired by books, from Me Before You to Trainspotting. Some of the greatest big screen hits have been adapted from novels, and manage to do the book justice more often than not.

However, there’s something special about reading the story before seeing it unfold on the big screen. 

What I love about book to film adaptations is putting a face to the characters you’ve loved for so long. Yes, you may know how the film is going to end, but seeing those characters come to life in the cinema is such a special feeling. It also helps you connect with them more, because they’re no longer just descriptions on a page.

The familiarity of the story, the plot and the characters can also be a huge source of comfort for bookworms when watching their beloved tales on the big screen.

Today, I wanted to recommend a book that left me in floods of tears, but one I hold very close to my heart. It’s due to be made into a film in 2019, starring Elle Fanning, and you must read it before it’s cinematic release.

All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven:

What can I say about this book other than WOW. The young adult novel by the incredible Jennifer Niven is without a doubt one of the greatest books I’ve read. The way Jennifer writes about bipolar disorder, the importance of friendship and the fear of being judged is so striking.

 

A post shared by Jennifer Niven (@jenniferniven) on

All The Bright Places follows the lives of Theodore Finch and Violet Markey. Theodore aka Finch is completely fascinated with death. Suicide is always on his mind, but little things always stop him from killing himself.

Violet Markey is struggling with the untimely death of her sister. She spends her days daydreaming about the future and aches to escape her hometown so she can start her life all over again.

Violet and Finch meet on top of the ledge of the school’s bell tower. They quickly develop a friendship that finally lets them breathe for the first time and be who they’ve always wanted to be.

The pair decide to team up for a school project to discover the natural wonders’ of Indiana, but their wanderings teach them more about one another than their hometown.

Violet learns how to live in the moment through her friendship with Finch, but can her friendship keep him alive?

 

A post shared by Jennifer Niven (@jenniferniven) on

This novel will take hold of your heart from the very first page. The friendship between Finch and Violet is both mesmerising and heartbreaking. The constant discussion of mental health and suicide throughout this young adult novel is heavy, but necessary.

Author Jennifer Niven is in the pre-production stages of the movie, and is thankfully looking after the script.

 

A post shared by Jennifer Niven (@jenniferniven) on

Elle Fanning has been cast as Violet, and the producers have found their Finch. Harry Styles, Charlie Heaton and Cole Sprouse have all been rumoured to be playing Finch, so keep your eyes peeled, but in the meantime read this glorious novel, and make sure you have plenty of tissues beside you.

All The Bright Places is published by Penguin Books Ltd and is available to buy here.

Just when you thought the 1D lads had completely turned theirs backs on the band that shot them to fame, it's been revealed that Harry Styles will produce a brand new CBS sitcom inspired by his early years of fame. 

According to People, the sitcom will be called Happy Together and will tell the story of young pop star Felix Mallard who moves in with a married couple played by Damon Wayans Jr. and Amber Stevens West.

The plot is based on an actual period in Harry's life, when he lived with producer Ben Winston and his wife Meredith shortly after finding fame on The X-Factor

The living arrangement was only meant to last a few weeks, as Harry was waiting for work to be finished on his own house, however, the young star ended up living in the couple's home for 20 months. 

Speaking to Rolling Stone, Ben spoke highly of Harry, admitting he was absolutely "gutted" when he eventually moved out. 

"Those 20 months were when they went from being on a reality show, X Factor, to being the biggest-selling artists in the world," he said. 

"That period of time, he was living with us in the most mundane suburban situation. No one ever found out, really. Even when we went out for a meal, it's such a sweet family neighbourhood, no one dreamed it was actually him. But he made our house a home. And when he moved out, we were gutted."

Ben Winston and Harry Styles 

It's believed Harry will play a huge role as executive producer of the new sitcom, with leading actress Amber telling People "he's going to care about the stories that we're telling."

Happy Together is set to premiere on CBS in the autumn.

I can safely say that there was mass heart break when the One Direction lads decided to go their separate ways. 

However, I get such joy in knowing that they're all doing well. 

The star of the show? Harry Styles, who is taking to the stage tonight in Dublin for a sold out gig.

Yes, I will be in attendance, alongside thousands of other hardcore fans. 

Anyway, if you are heading to the gig tonight, there's a few things you should know.

Stage times.

So the doors of the Three Arena will open from 6.30pm. Mabel, the glorious support act, will take the stage around 8pm, with Mr Styles kicking off his performance at 9pm, all going well. These times are, of course, subject to change. 

How to get there.

There is parking available in the Point Village car-park, which can be prebooked on Ticketmaster, however concert-goers are encouraged to leave their cars at home and to use the red line Luas or use Dublin Bus. The 151 operates every 10 minutes during rush hour and it will drop you on Castleforbes Road, the closest stop to the venue.

Security.

Much like every other gig at the Three, all bags will be searched upon entry. Bottles, cans, selfie sticks, large umbrellas, iPads/tablets, video cameras, professional cameras, audio recording devices, Go-Pro, large posters (A3+), large flags on poles, belt chains, laser pointers and anything that can be deemed a weapon are prohibited.

Set list.

Now this one is a wild guess, but we're basically showing you what Harry played in Glasgow last week – how AMAZING does it look?

Congratulations are in order this morning as James Corden took to Twitter to celebrate the arrival of his third child with wife Julia Carey.

The British star, who is dad to six-year-old Max and three-year-old Carey, sounded utterly overwhelmed as he announced the family's newest addition to his legions of fans and followers.

"Today we welcomed a beautiful baby daughter into the world," he wrote in a post which has been liked more than 96,000 times in mere hours. 

"Both she and her mother are doing great. We can’t stop smiling. Thank you Harry for stepping in to host the show at 2 and a half hours notice!"

Interestingly, many of James' followers seemed more interested in which 'Harry' the chat show host was referring to, with many crossing their fingers for a certain Mr Styles.

"James, you can’t just tweet this without specifying which harry you’re talking about (it better be styles)," wrote one while another added: "It better be Mr.Harry Styles or I’m never talking to you again."

Thankfully, some Twitter users knew to focus on James' bigger announcement, with one writing: "Congrats James!!! I’m glad she’s healthy and everything went well."

"I’ve been basically crying all day, finally pulled myself together," James said in response to the family's latest arrival.

Twitter has been quick to respond to disturbing footage which emerged in the aftermath of Harry Styles' recent performance at the Hollywood Bowl.

The clip, which shows the 23-year old within arms reach of his audience, has caused a wave of outrage online after it was established that a fan groped Harry's crotch 

The singer abruptly returned to the centre of the stage after a sea of hands rushed out to the touch him, and many of his fans and followers have been quick to condemn the actions of those involved.

With the help of the #RespectHarry hashtag, social media users have discussed the double standards at play by those who have dismissed the incident.

"No one should be ever be touched in a sexual way without consent, no one. I’m deeply sorry that happened," wrote one member of the public.

"This is so disrespectful! You have absolutely no right to call yourself a 'fan' after this, it's so messed up," added another.

When Zayn Malik made the decision to leave One Direction back in 2015, fans were stunned that the Bradford-native would choose to turn his back on the biggest boyband in the world.

And while the singer insisted that he simply felt his time with the band had come to an end and a solo career beckoned, rumours have circulated in recent years that all was not well in the 1D camp in the months leading up to Zayn's departure.

Indeed, Louis Tomlinson recently revealed that his late mother had encouraged him to rebuild his friendship with Zayn following his shock departure, saying: "I can’t stand to hold a grudge with anyone. It doesn’t sit with me right."

"I would always see the good in Zayn and also watch him shoot himself in the foot with some of his decisions, but he’s just a little misunderstood," Louis added at the time.

However, it doesn't seem like Zayn shared the same friendship with other members of the group, telling Us Weekly that he didn't expect to see much of Harry after leaving the group.

Speaking of his former bandmates, he said: "We're in touch. Everything is on a civil level."

"It's not the way it used to be, obviously, because we were spending 24 hours a day in the band and now we're growing as individual men, but we still check in."

The 24-year-old singer then turned his attention to Harry, revealing: "To be honest, I never really spoke to Harry even when I was in the band. So I didn't really expect that much of a relationship with him."

We wonder what Harry would say about this one…

Harry Styles stepped in as a last minute replacement on BBC One's Live Lounge today, and of course, being the professional that he is, he absolutely killed it.

After the effects Hurricane Irma made it too difficult for The Killers to travel to Britain, the Sign of the Times singer was on hand to save the day.

Harry performed a number of songs from his debut solo album including his new single, Two Ghosts – a song many fans believe is about the singer's former flame, Taylor Swift.

And, as is typical of any Live Lounge session, he couldn't leave the studio without putting his own twist on one of his favourite tracks – Fleetwood Mac, The Chain.

A bold move to say the least, but we reckon he pulled it off. 

Revealing his reason behind the choice, Harry explained that he was “massive fan of them as a band and the music.”

When asked if Stevie Nicks would be happy with his cover of the 1977 hit, Harry replied: “We’ll find out.”

The star also reminisced about the first time he appeared on the legendary radio segment with former band, One Direction, saying how performing solo and just as fun as reforming with a group.

"It’s fun – and that [One Direction Live Lounge] was fun as well. Live Lounge is fun."

He really loves to maintain that air of mystery doesn't he?

Harry Styles looks set to follow in the footsteps of fellow musicians, Adele and Michael Bublé, as he sits down with his good friend and BBC Radio One DJ, Nick Grimshaw, for an exclusive one-off interview.

The former One Direction star turned solo artist and actor, will chat about his career to date, as well as his personal life in front of a live studio audience in Manchester this November. 

The Sign of the Times singer will also perform music from his solo album, including songs never played for a TV audience.

When asked about the 60-minute programme, host, Nick Grimshaw could hardly contain his excitement: “Harry is a great performer and full of so many wonderful stories about his extraordinary career, which he'll be sharing with us, I can't wait for this show!”

Guy Freeman of BBC Studios added: “These shows are all about creating a world in which superstars like Harry feel incredibly comfortable and alongside their brilliant, live performances, can simply have fun and enjoy revealing more of themselves to viewers than is ever normally possible.”

This type of programme has been hugely successful in the past with Adele's one-off feature even earning itself a BAFTA nomination.

Christopher Nolan's highly anticipated Dunkirk will hit Irish cinemas this Friday, July 21.

The critically acclaimed WWII drama features a stellar cast including Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Kenneth Branagh and of course, acting novice, Harry Styles.

The decision to cast the former One Direction member certainly raised a few eyebrows, however, the film's direction previously defended the move.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Christopher said: “As a director, I have to trust my instincts, my ability to figure out who's the right guy for the part. I'm not too worried about baggage.”

Harry plays the role of Alex, a junior soldiers trying to get home as the enemy forces close in, but it has now emerged that he had no idea what role he was reading for when he auditioned.

The Sign of the Times singer told the Press Association:  “We auditioned together and I was sitting in a cold, lonely room and Fionn came in from a set of something he was working on and there was one other person in there.”

“You had no idea what part you were auditioning for. We didn’t know how many parts there were and they kind of round robin-ed us a little bit, so we did everyone with everyone.”

Harry also admitted that his first day on set with Christopher Nolan was “pretty overwhelming.”

He added: “I think as much as you can imagine what something like that is going to look like, people don’t make that.”

“I don’t know in what other situation someone gets to do what he did so he was pretty amazing to be around.”

“At times the tide would go out and you could see ruins of some of the old boats that were out there and it was moments like that when everyone was aware of how special the place that we were was.”

Unfortunately, it looks like Harry's highly anticipated acting debut could also be the last time we see him on screen.

When asked if he would consider acting again, the star replied, “I might be one and done. I think I’m one and done, to be honest. I think so.”

Dunkirk is released in Irish cinemas on July 21.

Film buffs were baffled when it was revealed that Harry Styles had been cast in Christopher Nolan's highly anticipated, Dunkirk.

The former One Direction member had never acted in a major film before and many wondered if he was the right choice for the role.

Well, director Christopher Nolan has defended his casting, insisting that Harry is actually “perfect” for the position, saying that there were also “raised eyebrows” when he chose Heath Ledger to play the role of the Joker in The Dark Night.

“When I cast Heath Ledger as the Joker, it raised a lot of eyebrows and caused a lot of comment,” he told Entertainment Tonight.

“I have to trust my instincts, and Harry was perfect for this part.”

The filmmaker also claimed that he was not aware of the height of Harry's boyband fame when he cast him in the WWII action flick (though we're not quite sure if we believe that).

The 23-year-old singer plays a soldier in the film about the 1940 evacuation of Allied troops from French shores.

Christopher said it was the singer's charisma that secured him the role.

“I was new to Harry. I mean, I’ve heard his name from my kids, but I wasn’t really familiar with him.”

He added, “What I was seeing was a very charismatic guy who clearly had a truthfulness and a subtlety in his ability to perform as a film actor.”

Dunkirk, which premieres in London this Thursday, July 13, also stars, Cillian Murphy, Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh and Mark Rylance.
