On Sunday November 9 during a ‘Google Hangout’, Harry Styles was asked by his friend Ben Winston what it was like to be the speculative subject of Taylor Swift songs like “Out of the Woods,” “Style,” and others. Harry answered,
We write from personal experience, I think everyone does. So it would be hypocritical of us to be like, ‘Oh, you can’t write about us.’
Taylor and Harry dated in 2012. Taylor had confessed to ‘Rolling Stone’ magazine that her relationship and breakup with Harry was the bases for much of the material for her hugely successful new album, ‘1989’.
Taylor told ‘Rolling Stone’ magazine that her second single from ‘1989, “Out of the Woods,” was a look back at an anxiety-riddled relationship. Taylor said:
Every day was a struggle. Forget making plans for life – we were just trying to make it to next week.
Harry actually praised Taylor for her talent saying,
She’s really good, so… they’re good songs. So I’m really lucky in that sense.
Sounds to us like Harry Styles has a lot of respect for Taylor Swift and her enormous talent for expressing her feelings through her music.
