Harry Styles vs. Zayn Malik — PopCrush King of Young Hollywood (Round One)
There’s nothing like proving your loyalty, dedication and undying appreciation for celebrities than voting them the winner of a poll that they may never come to know they were ever involved in. But that’s the beauty of it all: You vote these strangers to the top, expecting nothing in return. That kind of love is just so selfless and pure, you know?
Now that we’ve officially crowned this year’s Beach Babe and Beach Hunk (Lady Gaga and Harry Styles, respectively), it’s time to move on to something even greater: King and Queen of Young Hollywood. From reality stars to pop acts to actors (oh my), we combed through the popular youths of the entertainment industry in an attempt to cover as much ground as possible. Now it’s up to you guys to decide: Which of these young people deserve to be named Hollywood royalty?
Harry Styles, in case you’re unaware, is your quintessential, top 40 pop-rocker, with long, greasy hair and jeans so tight you're not sure he even has feeling below the waist anymore. His average face warrants him physically attractive based on subconscious, evolutionary preferences, and he contributes a much needed edge (vocal-wise, anyway) to an otherwise Wonderbread boyband, with his throaty growls and slight rock intonation. The truth is, we'e never quite been able to pinpoint Harry's mass appeal (though we've tried). You might just say he's got that one thing.
Zayn Malik, meanwhile, is shrouded in an immaculate glow -- his face is so symmetrical you'd swear it was hand-crafted by the gods above themselves. His vocals, like his beauty, are largely unmatched, even if his incessant mumbling makes it seem like he has the same vocal coach as Ariana Grande sometimes. And while some One Direction fans may forever feel slighted by the fact that he quit the group in the middle of the world tour, Zayn is finally living his truth, #RealMusic and all.
Neither can live while the other survives, so cast your vote in the poll below. We'll reveal the winner of this round on August 24 at 5 PM. Get to voting! And if you haven't yet, place your votes in the other rounds for King of Young Hollywood.
