Harry Styles, ‘Taylor Swift Likes A Joke’

Harry Styles responds to Taylor Swift diss him in 2013 MTV VMAs acceptance speech. Taylor exclaimed: ‘I want to thank the person that inspired this song, he knows who he is! And now I’ve got one of these.”

Harry told EXTRA: ‘It’s alright, she likes a joke. I like a joke as much as the next guy, so it’s all good.’ When asked about the Taylor, Ed Sheeran photo at a VMA after party, Styles added: ‘Yeah, I went for a drink with Ed and some friends. It was good.’

While Harry has dismissed Swift’s actions, his bandmates Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan instead jumped to his defence, with Louis telling Us Weekly: ‘We were a bit confused. We thought she was actually calling out Niall [Horan], so the whole thing’s a bit confusing.’

Payne agreed with the reporter that Taylor’s remarks were ‘lame’, before adding: ‘I just thought it was a bit not needed. I mean, you just won an award. It’s like, ‘Concentrate on yourself!”
