Harry Styles Quickly Shouts Out Ex Taylor Swift in Concert
Styles, who's on tour for his self-titled debut album, singled out a fan at a show earlier this week. And when he found out his superfan named Thea was turning 22, he began saying "I don’t know about…" before cutting himself off.
This, most fans inferred, was a reference to his ex Taylor Swift's song "22," which goes: "I don't know about you but I'm feeling 22 / Everything will be alright, if you keep me next to you."
And fans of both stars seemed to have a sense of humor about the moment. One wrote "How could he forget such an impactful queen" while another noted "HAYLOR ROSE."
Styles and Swift dated from 2012 until January 2013, and eventually split a few days after a New Year's Eve kiss upon a big-time fight along the British Virgin Islands. In June 2015, Swift basically admitted her song "Clean" was about Styles to Elle.
"'Clean' I wrote as I was walking out of Liberty in London. Someone I used to date—it hit me that I'd been in the same city as him for two weeks and I hadn't thought about it. When it did hit me, it was like, Oh, I hope he's doing well. And nothing else," she said. "And you know how it is when you're going through heartbreak. A heartbroken person is unlike any other person. Their time moves at a completely different pace than ours. It's this mental, physical, emotional ache and feeling so conflicted. Nothing distracts you from it."
