Harry Styles’ Sophomore Album Is About “Having Sex And Feeling Sad”
Harry Styles covers the September issue of Rolling Stone and poses for a series of pics that capture his foppish charm. The 25-year-old also opened up about his long-awaited sophomore LP, saying: “It’s all about having sex and feeling sad.” He promises to be more honest than ever, a skill the Brit is learning as he gets older. “I will tell you that I can be really pathetic when I’m jealous,” Harry reveals. “Feeling happier than I’ve ever been, sadder than I’ve ever been, feeling sorry for myself… it feels really different to share that.”
Another key ingredient of album number two is magic mushrooms. “We’d do mushrooms, lie down on the grass, and listen to Paul McCartney’s Ram in the sunshine,” the superstar admits. “We’d just turn the speakers into the yard.” Inevitably, the conversation turned to One Direction and Harry is exceedingly kind. “When somebody gets out of a band, they go, ‘That wasn’t me. I was held back,'” he explains. “But it was me. And I don’t feel like I was held back at all. It was so much fun. If I didn’t enjoy it, I wouldn’t have done it. It’s not like I was tied to a radiator.”
Not that the “Sign Of The Times” hitmaker is itching for a reunion. “I don’t think I’d ever say I’d never do it again, because I don’t feel that way,” Harry muses. “If there’s a time when we all really want to do it, that’s the only time for us to do it, because I don’t think it should be about anything else other than the fact that we’re all like, ‘Hey, this was really fun. We should do this again.’ But until that time, I feel like I’m really enjoying making music and experimenting.” Read the full interview here.
