Harry Styles just won everything.
The former One Direction singer defended his fanbase to Rolling Stone magazine, and his comments are so on point that you’re about to leap out of your chair with pride.
The interview was wide ranging, addressing everything from his youth to ex-Taylor Swift (he had nothing but nice things to say, BTW), but what everyone’s going to be talking about is his opinion on his fans.
This is direct from the original article: “Styles is aware that his largest audience so far has been young women. When asked if he spends pressure-filled evenings worried about proving credibility to an older crowd, Styles grows animated.
"’Who's to say that young girls who like pop music– short for popular, right?–have worse musical taste than a 30-year-old hipster guy? That's not up to you to say. Music is something that's always changing. There's no goal posts.’"
Now, if he just stopped there, he’d already have been a hero -- he didn't simply accept the reporter's judgement, he stood up for himself and his fans.
But he didn’t stop there. Not by a long shot. He went on to give a pump-up speech about young women that needs to be plastered on bedroom walls everywhere:
“'Young girls like the Beatles. You gonna tell me they're not serious? How can you say young girls don't get it? They're our future. Our future doctors, lawyers, mothers, presidents, they kind of keep the world going. Teenage-girl fans–they don't lie. If they like you, they're there. They don't act 'too cool.' They like you, and they tell you. Which is sick.'”
Excuse us while we stop drooling.
Obviously Our Lord and Savior Harry Styles is getting all the praise he deserves on social media:
Hopefully more people will finally see Harry for the legend he is after this quote!
