Sonnyboy: Harry Styles

Harry Styles rose to fame as a member of the boy band One Direction. Today he is arguably one of the most popular male pop stars in the world, a modern sex symbol and a stylish dandy. A visit to "Harry's House", although this is to be understood in a more figurative sense.

Is there anything Harry Styles can't do? He acts in Hollywood blockbusters, the Brit even made it onto the cover of "Vogue" as the first solo man. In a dress, mind you. His new album, Harry’s House, was just released this May. And in case you’ve ever wondered what the twenty-eight-year-old has always wanted to say to Billie Eilish – you’ll find the answer here.

Harry Styles about . . .

. . . his time after One Direction

For a long time, I didn’t really know who I was. And I didn’t want to be defined by what I do all the time. But I had to ask myself, “If this ends, am I going to be good at handling it?” But I think it gave me an opportunity to get comfortable with who I am and get to know that person a little bit more. Putting out the first single from this album was far and away the most relaxed I’ve ever felt putting anything out. I no longer feel like my overall happiness is dependent on whether a song goes here or goes there.

. . . Billie Eilish

I definitely had a really big moment when Billie Eilish first blew up. When I was in One Direction, we were just really young – and it was fun and exciting. But I had this moment where I saw her do this at such a young age where I felt like, “I’m not that young anymore.” That was the moment in which I thought, “Okay. I should really think about who I want to be as a musician.” I think we’ve run into each other a couple of times since then, and though I’m incredibly thankful to her, I’ve never actually told her.

. . . the new album

At first I thought, “It’d be really fun to make an album called Harry’s House.” And as I started making the album, I realized it wasn’t about the geographical location. It’s much more of an internal thing. It took on this whole new meaning and it was more about spending a day in my house. “What do I go through? What do I feel?”
