Well I’m ashamed to admit that after watching the embarrassing snooze-fest that is known as the BRIT awards that I can totally see what all the tweens and women in their thirties see in the fop-haired 19-year-old.
Put simply: ‘would.
Harry spent most of the evening being the butt of jokes over his relationship with Taylor Swift right from when oh-so-predictably the camera cut to him the second his ex fling walked on to the stage at the start of the show.
But he showed that he’s a straight A student and had paid attention in media training classes and clapped politely, handling it all with class and dignity and taking all the jokes in his stride – something his former shag Swifter would do well to learn from.
Funny-as-a-heart-attack presenter James Cordon made several digs at Harry’s love of older women saying: ”Sharon Osbourne’s here, Annie Lennox is here, who’ve you got your eye on?” – leading the Wand Erection singer to hide his face behind his programme.
And, when irritating-as-nails-down-a-chalkboard James introduced Radio One DJ Nick Grimshaw he made another dig at Harry, saying: “It’s the guy who bought Harry Styles a stripper for his 19th birthday. It was the first time Harry had seen a woman fully clothed for at least a minute.”
When the plastic face formerly known as Sharon Osbourne appeared on stage to present the BRIT for International Female, she teased: ’Where is that little Harry Potter? Has he got his little magic stick here tonight – that’s his willy!’
But best dig of the night was from Robbie Williams who said after Taylor performed that he thinks she’s ’really fit’ before adding in reference to her 13 or so ex celebrity boyfriends: ‘It will be my go soon.’
Snort! If only they’d panned to Taylor’s reaction backstage. She was probably nodding in agreement and adding Rob’s name to a long list she carries in her handbag.
But in a true show of class and civility when asked about Taylor at the Sony party at the London Arts Club, Harry (who had his mum Anne Cox in tow as his date) said: ‘I thought her performance was really good, she looked great.’
You see Taylor? It’s really that easy to move on from a 3 minute fling with your pride and reputation in one piece.
