Fans have been obsessed with Harry Styles since he took the public stage. Once a X factor contestant, he became an incredibly successful member of the boy band One Direction. But there’s more to Styles than that makes people love him so much.
The 28-year-old recently opened up about his success as a solo artist. He discussed Harry’s house, his latest album, due out in May 2022, and the creative process behind his magic. Styles also revealed the secret behind his seemingly positive attitude.
Harry Styles Talks Harry’s House
Harry Styles’ talent and charm endeared him to an entire generation. Is the “As It Was” singer really as sweet and upbeat as fans make him out to be?
The Brit gave an exclusive interview to Better Homes & Gardens to talk about it Harry’s house and how he went through a reset to create this new style and sound. The interviewer, Lou Stoppard, wanted to know firsthand if Styles is as charming as he looks. “No one who pretends can be that cute,” Stoppard thought, asking Styles if he was “really nice, normal, and wholesome”?
Almost everyone who meets or interviews Styles will point out how polite and easygoing he is. It’s hard not to love the charm and almost naïve enthusiasm he embodies in every engagement, from talk show sit-downs to stage performances.
During that interview, Styles revealed his secret to staying positive and how he faces an ongoing struggle to be liked.
The Secret Behind Harry Styles’ Positive Attitude
Styles has been busy despite the coronavirus pandemic closing everyone in place. In 2019 he released his second solo album, fine line, which of course everyone liked. The “Watermelon Sugar” singer has since followed up with live shows. He got to work Harry’s housean album inspired by the lockdown epiphany he thinks everyone is likely to have had in 2020.
But when asked about his positivity, he admits it’s a work in progress. Styles said, “My producer keeps asking me when I have my big breakdown.” He went on to describe his humble childhood and early expectations of success.
Styles has gone far beyond what he envisioned himself saying, “Everything else was a bonus.” He lives his life recognizing how fortunate he is to have had his big breaks.
The “Sign of the Times” singer struggles with the same fears most people have, which is the need to keep getting bigger and better. With each new success, Styles often worries about how he’s going to pull off the next big thing. Styles told Better Homes & Gardens, “There were so many years” where they were “terrified” it was all going to end. His anxiety came from not necessarily understanding who he was unless he was musically creative. But for him, the secret lies in how to “keep it going” and learn to “make it grow.”
How Styles deals with the need to be liked
The Web Capitals says Harry Styles is endearing because of his style, talent and charismatic humor. But fans might love him for bringing such an authentic perspective on his successes and challenges. He’s personable and, based on this interview, struggles with another common pain point that he probably shares with many of his fans: the need to be liked.
Styles’ therapist helped him uncover this need to be liked. And he points out that after dealing with “cheater syndrome” over the years, he expected someone to come and “pat him on the back” to say, “You are now ready.”
The “Fine Line” singer said the time he’s been in lockdown during the pandemic has forced him to reconcile those thoughts and internal dialogue. He realized how much of what he did was based on a need for approval.
Since then, Styles has strived to enjoy things as they come and “be in the moment.” He swims to find clarity and seeks to improve his belonging and peace. It is this self-reflective journey that inspires Harry’s house but probably it will continue to be his mantra in life that moves forward.
