Harry Styles Philanthropy
In 2013 together with Liam Payne they partnered with Trekstock, a leading cancer charity to help raise money for cancer research. As ambassadors of the charity, the duo collaborated to offer the chance for one fan and a friend to win an evening out with them in return for a donation to the charity as part of an exclusive “#HangwithLiam&Harry” global campaign. They had originally set a goal of raising $500,000 and ultimately raised $784,984.

In 2015, during One Direction’s tour, Styles visited the Lalela Project in Cape Town, South Africa, where he spoke to the affected youth and offered them concert tickets.

Harry Styles Taylor Swift
Harry Styles and Taylor Swift dated from October 2012 to January 2013. It was rumored that Taylor Swift’s song ‘Style’ and ‘Out of the Woods’ were about Harry but during an interview Harry said he was not sure whether they were about him or not but said “but the issue is, she’s so good, they’re bloody everywhere.” He also added: “I’m lucky if everything [we went through] helped create those songs. That’s what hits your heart. That’s the stuff that’s hardest to say, and it’s the stuff I talk least about. That’s the part that’s about the two people. I’m never going to tell anybody everything.”
He also talked about their famous Central Park stroll which was their second date: “I think: Relationships are hard, at any age. And adding in that you don’t really understand exactly how it works when you’re 18, trying to navigate all that stuff didn’t make it easier. I mean, you’re a little bit awkward to begin with. You’re on a date with someone you really like. It should be that simple, right? It was a learning experience for sure. But at the heart of it – I just wanted it to be a normal date.”
Harry Styles Kendall
Harry Styles and Kendal Jenner were first rumored to be dating in November 2013 after they were photographed having dinner at Craig’s restaurant in West Hollywood and left in Harry’s car. At the time they were said to be just friends but in January 2014 they were spoted going out to dinner and hitting the slopes at Mammoth Mountain in California.
In December 2015 they were again spotted having dinner in Anguilla and again they were photographed getting cozy on a yacht in St. Barts. During an interview with Entertainment Tonight Khloe confirmed their relationship saying:
“They were hanging out together. Do I think they’re dating? Yes. I don’t know if they’re like boyfriend-girlfriend. Nowadays, I don’t know, people are weird with stuff. So I don’t know their ‘title,’. But I mean, they were in St. Barts together hanging out, so to me that’s dating. I would call that dating.”
In April 2016 they were spotted shopping in Los Angeles. In September 2016 they were again spotted on a dinner date at L.A. hot spot Tsabel. In July 2018 during Harry’s concert at the Forum in Inglewood, California Kendal was in attendance and cheered and sang along most of the songs.

Harry Styles Interview On His Self Titled Album
How did writing and recording in Jamaica influence the album?
Harry Styles: I went there because I didn’t want to be around distractions. The thing with being in London, or LA, or pretty much anywhere that you know people, is it’s tough, because you go into the studio for ten hours, and then, at some point, everyone has to eat, and you go home. I just wanted to really dive into it and immerse myself. It became this fluid thing that we were just doing all of the time, rather than going in from nine to five. I also didn’t want to be around people who might tell me what (the music) should sound like.
Was there added pressure in being the one who had final say?
Harry Styles: The guys that I was working with (the writers and producers Jeff Bhasker, Alex Salibian, Tyler Johnson and Kid Harpoon), we were kind of all working it out together. But in terms of choosing the songs and the track listing, it was probably time for me to have to make some decisions for myself and not be able to hide behind anyone else. As a person, too, probably. Everything, workwise, that I’d done since I was 16 was made in a democracy.
There aren’t a lot of mainstream pop stars going the rock route right now. Did that feel like a risk?
Harry Styles: That’s just what my references are. A lot of people, when they make music, they build a wall between them and fans. They think: “We’ll do this because people will get it.” I really wanted to make an album that I wanted to listen to. That was the only way I knew I wouldn’t look back on it and regret it. It was more, “What do I want to sit and listen to?” rather than, “How do I shake up compared to what’s on radio right now?”
There’s a handful of more 12A subject matter on the album. Was it liberating to be able to act your age?
Harry Styles: Starting out with no reference points for the actual sound, the only thing that I knew I wanted to be was honest. I didn’t want to sit and edit lyrics. In the times of going, “Oh, can I say that?” I wanted to be like, “Yeah, I can – because that’s what I wrote.”
On “From the Dining Table”, the opening line about masturbation is pretty raw…
Harry Styles: Is it?
Well, given how closely fans like to parse your every word, little things can create an uproar.
Harry Styles: I’ve never felt the need to explain myself in terms of my personal life. I very much feel like writing is the way you get to say what you want to say and be like, “That’s all I have to say on it.” With that one, I think it’s up to everyone’s interpretation, which is obviously an incredibly diplomatic answer. The line in particular, in context of the verse, paints the picture of the feeling that I was going at. It’s much more powerful when not taken simply as what it is. Was that an all right answer for that question? I think it was all right! I think we danced around that OK.
You’ve spoken with a real respect for the tastes of teenage girls, who have driven a lot of your popularity.
Harry Styles: When people have fans that are younger girls, people assume that their opinion on the music is tainted by desires that aren’t based around music. When, in fact, I believe that fans that I’ve had in the past, if anything, expect and demand more. Fans are usually the first people to tell you when stuff’s not good enough. And I just think it’s a little naive to just write off younger female fans, in particular, in the way people do. Like I’ve said, young girls were massive fans of the Beatles. It’s crazy to think that they’re not intelligent.
You were making this album in the time of Brexit, Black Lives Matter and Donald Trump. Did any of that outside chaos make it into the songwriting?
Harry Styles: 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. For example, “Sign of the Times”, for me, it’s looking at several different things. That’s me commenting on different things.
What kinds of things?
Harry Styles: Everything you were talking about – just the state of the world at the moment. It’s very much me looking at that. It’s a time when it’s very easy to feel incredibly sad about a lot of things. It’s also nice sometimes to remember that while there’s a lot of bad stuff, there’s also a lot of amazing people doing amazing things in the world.
