FINAL Little Things promo under! Die Campbell told Vogue: ‘I tried to fancy them, really I did, but I just didn’t. They reminded me of my little sister’s friends. I hadn’t realised how big they were to be honest. I was perhaps the only female left under 25 who wasn’t aware of their superstardom status, but I’m much more of a fan now. They’re such sweet, nice boys and incredibly enthusiastic. They wanted to be famous and now that they are famous, you get the impression that they still love it, which is really nice to see.’
The others didn’t really say much to me, just Harry. He looks so young, but he’s so sweet. The hair was very prominent, it was swept back like lots of teenage boys’ wear it. The hair was impressive. He left me hanging at the end of the day though. We went to say goodbye and I gave him a kiss on the cheek, I went into the right and then to the left, like you do in fashion, the double kiss, and by the time I’d got round to the left, he’d disappeared. There was no serenade; no What Makes You Beautiful, nothing.’
Is she prepared for jealous fans? ‘As long as they don’t appear at my door with fire-lit torches, I reckon I can handle it. I don’t fancy any sort of witch hunt, it could be like the trials of Salem all over again.’ Niall on screaming: ‘I love it. I love the screaming. They love it, too: they’ve all got their tickets and they’ve been waiting a year or so to see you, so you’ve got to give it your best.’
Harry Styles on being a sex symbol: ‘You’re never going to get used to walking into a room and have people screaming at you. There’s a lot of things that come with the life you could get lost in. But you have to let it be what it is. I’ve learnt not to take everything too seriously. I like fashion. When I look back at the kind of stuff I wore on the X Factor, I laugh. There’s no excuse.
We want to gradually get more and more ‘live’ sounding. So this album is a lot less little synth sounds, more guitars and drums. It’s important to experiment with things, we want to move with the times, but keep true to ourselves.’
