One Direction’s Harry Styles: ‘I’m no cougar lover’

One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles has a reputation for romancing the older ladies following his fling with TV presenter Caroline Flack, but the curly haired hunk has insisted that he is no ‘cougar lover’.

Harry, who was recently linked to Inbetweeners star Emily Atack, has complained that he doesn’t like being known for romancing older women.

“I don’t know where the cougar thing came from to be honest,” he told Now Magazine. “I don’t know why people got that impression.”

Speaking of his reported budding romance with blonde Emily, coy Harry claimed there was no romance between them.

“I don’t know where anyone got the idea that she’s my girlfriend,” he revealed. “We’ve only met a couple of times, we’re friends. I didn’t even kiss her.”

The One Direction hottie is clearly enjoying the single life for now and it’s easy to see why. The boys are currently on tour in the US where the teen heartthrob has no shortage of offers from lovesick fans.

Speaking of the tour, Harry admitted that he had picked up some tips from Kanye West and Jay Z’s ‘Watch The Throne’ tour: “I went to see the Kanye West and Jay-Z show the other day and it was unbelievable. I think you can take tips from a gig like that,” he said. “I could try a leather kilt like Kanye. I’ll give it a go.”

Harry Styles in a leather skirt? That would be sure to make some headlines.

Finally! Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards Confirms Relationship With One Direction’s Zayn Malik

Little Mix star Perrie Edwards has finally confirmed she is in a relationship with One Direction's Zayn Malik, after months of speculation and denial.

The ‘Cannonball’ singer made the revelation on This Morning today and admitted that the two are “really happy” together.

The two young singers have been rumoured to be dating for several months, ever since Little Mix won The X Factor in 2011. And to show their fans they are serious, the couple shared a public kiss for the first time in front of the cameras.

“Obviously we are together and I think everyone knows that now,” Perrie told This Morning hosts Holly Willhoughby and Philip Schofield today. “I am really, really happy but I’m not going to get into details.”

The four-piece girl group went on to discuss the nature of being in a long distance relationship, with Zayn currently out in the US on tour with One Direction. Perrie said the nature of their jobs makes it easier to deal with: “You’re more understanding because you get it,” Perrie explained. “And it’s more exciting when you see each other.”

Little Mix are currently preparing to unveil their new single and album after the release of their first single ‘Cannonball’ back in December 2011. One Direction are out in America at present on their first US headline tour, and are set to continue the nationwide jaunt with a performance tonight (25th May) at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

He has become known for his love of older women, but One Direction's Harry Styles has started dating a girl much nearer his own age - 22 year old Inbetweeners star, Emily Atack.

Singer Harry, 18, and former Dancing On Ice star Emily have reportedly been seeing each other since the floppy haired heartthrob returned from Australia with One Direction. And in news that will break millions of girls hearts, friends of the singer said it is Harry’s first serious relationship since splitting from Caroline Flack.

At 22, the actress is still older than the teenager, but much closer to his age than Xtra Factor host  Caroline Flack, 32, who Harry previously dated. A source close to Harry told The Sunday Mirror: “They’re perfect for each other, they really are. They’ve been getting to know each other and keeping things quiet but they’re close. Harry has always had a crush on her and hoped he could get it ­together with her and they eventually did.’

Blonde Emily, who recently came tenth in FHM ­magazine’s Top 100 sexiest women in the world, tweeted two years ago: ‘Does Harry from One ­Direction HAVE to be 16?! Let’s pretend he’s 18 at least! Then there would only be One ­Direction he would be going… to the bedroom!’

But although pals say it is serious, One Direction are soon set to head off on a three-month tour of the US and, with 62 dates lined up across the states, the One Direction favourite will certainly be busy.

Harry was last spotted kissing Emma Ostilly, an aspiring model he was seeing while on tour in New Zealand. Emma was soon forced to shut down her Twitter page after she received a series of threats from One Direction fans.

One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson says emotional goodbye to girlfriend

Having enjoyed some time off from One Direction's hectic work schedule, Louis Tomlinson bids an emotional fairwell to girlfriend Eleanor Calder as he returns to the road.

For the single members of the band being on tour is a chance to mix with girls from all around the world, but for loved up Louis, saying hello to life on tour means saying goodbye to his gorgeous model girlfriend, Eleanor.

In what appeared to be a very emotional farewell, the One Direction singer and the 19-year-old brunette were seen holding hands and hugging before the singer boarded his plane. Eleanor helped the 20-year-oldheartthrob hold some of his luggage as they walked through the airport together. As they said their final goodbyes, the smitten couple were pictured sharing a kiss.

Last month Louis was forced to speak out and defend his love life after a vicious Twitter campaign to get him back with his ex-girlfriend went viral. The former X Factor star ended up on the receiving end of a bizarre online campaign, with fans telling him he should break up with Eleanor and get back with Hannah Walker, a primary school  teaching assistant in his hometown of Doncaster.

Louis told British newspaper the Daily Mail that he was deeply upset with the Twitter campaign and wanted to set the record straight. His spokesman added: ‘It’s upsetting for Louis and Eleanor when Twitter campaigns like this start. I know some of the fans will think it’s a bit of fun, but it’s unnecessary when they are both very happy together.’

Having settled the issue with his fans with regards to his relationship with his girlfriend, Louis was soon back to his smiley best when the band were greeted by some supporters at Heathrow airport. Used to sound of screaming fans, the boys looked calm and collected as they said their goodbyes and fooled around with members of their entourage.

Has Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards Deleted Twitter Due To Zayn Malik Relationship?
Has Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards Deleted Twitter Due To Zayn Malik Relationship?

It seems that any lady who is linked to one of the One Direction boys will be under fire from their dedicated fans.

It was reported earlier this week that Little Mix star Perrie Edwards had decided to delete her official Twitter account after receiving death threats and abuse from One Direction fans, but Perrie has allegedly left to join her bandmates on the group’s official page.

The ‘Cannonball’ singer has been romantically linked to the One Direction heartthrob since filming the video for a charity single during Perrie’s time on the X Factor last year. The pair enjoyed a cinema date on April 27, where they watched ‘Avengers Assemble’.

Zayn later tweeted the blonde singer, saying: “yeah tonight was fun lets do it again sometime ;) x x “

Later adding: “So happy to be going home missed every1 so much ! :) especially you ;) x x x x”

The One Direction star was spotted leaving Perrie’s London home one morning last week, suggesting they’d spent the night together. However, fans on Twitter have suggested Perrie actually left Twitter as part of a pact with the Little Mix girls, with user @1DsBromances explaining: “Perrie didn’t leave Twitter because of hate. Her and the rest of Little Mix deleted so no member had more followers than the other.”

In support of this, Jade and Leigh-Anne’s accounts have also been deleted, suggesting that Perrie left of her own accord. Little Mix's management refused to comment on the situation when contacted.

One Direction's Louis Tomlinson appears to have surprised his girlfriend, Eleanor Calder, shortly before she took an exam today.

The thoughtful singer obviously wanted to show his support to Eleanor, who’s currently in the grips of revision and tests at Manchester University.

Louis’ Mum, Johannah, has formed a close relationship with her sons girlfriend, and even sent her a message on social networking site, Twitter, which left followers in no doubt that Louis had suprised the pretty brunette. She wrote: ‘@EleanorJCalder I’m sure you will have done well today hun! Nice surprise to see your boyfriend before you went in? :) xxx,’

Johannah also reportedly gave the 19-year-old part-time model a ‘little charm’ as a good luck present before her exam.

And it didn’t stop there, heartthrob Louis also publicly wished her well on his Twitter page, tweeting: ‘Good luck to my lovely girlfriend @EleanorJCalder for her exam today!!’

20-year-old Louis has reportedly insured his bum, according to bandmate Harry Styles. According to the Daily Star, Harry spoke about it during a recent 1D band rehearsal, saying: “Louis has insured his bum just like J.Lo. We support him and so does his family.”

After enjoying a cinema date recently it appears that One Direction’s Zayn Malik and Little Mix star Perrie Edwards enjoyed a sleepover last week.

The pop duo were seen leaving her London home early in the morning last Wednesday suggesting they may well have spent the night together. Perrie, who has denied dating the boy band heartthrob in the past, was seen beaming at Zayn as the pair exited her house.

Meanwhile Zayn, 19, was all smiles as he was photographed heading to a car carrying a bright pink suitcase. Althought the pair weren’t holding hands, the sighting suggests the pair are more than just good friends.

Both Zayn and Perrie have remained tight-lipped about their blossoming romance but it appears they have been spending more and more time together in recent weeks. Late last month Perrie wrote on her Twitter: ‘Just went to see avengers assemble and it was #boring. Good night though! xD @zaynmalik.’

The One Direction singer later tweeted: ‘Yeah tonight was fun lets do it again sometime ;) x x’

Last December, Perrie came forward to deny reports that she was dating Zayn. The pair were linked when One Direction performed on The X Factor, which Little Mix won, back in November.

Talking about meeting Zayn and the former X Factor boy band, Perrie revealed: ‘They were so nice and gave us loads of advice. But right now I haven’t got the time for romance. It’s all about the music, the tour and then the album.’

Perrie later said: ‘Apparently we are dating. We met One Direction at the charity single and Jade is mates with them. We did text and I said thanks for the support. But, no, we didn’t kiss.’

One Direction heart-throb Niall Horan has reportedly got a beautiful new girlfriend, Ali McGinley. 

Pop star Niall, 18, hooked up with the brunette while he was home in Mullingar, Co Westmeath, over the weekend. And smitten Ali, 17, admitted yesterday: “He genuinely may be one of the nicest men I’ve ever met. We’re close.”

The pretty schoolgirl posed with What Makes You Beautiful singer Niall several times during his recent trip back home. One photo of the cute pair shows Niall kissing her on the cheek, and in another they’re cuddled up in a chair together.

Ali has since been subjected to vile abuse from jealous One Direction fans commenting on her blog. But there have also been messages of support left on her Tumblr site. One follower wrote: “hi, you’re BEAUTIFUL. And I’m so sorry you have to go through all of this s*** with Niall’s fans. Best of luck with all this.”

Ali wrote back: “Hello love! Thank you thank you, he’s rather the stunner, huh? haha.”

And when asked whether she is dating the teen star, Ali responded: “I can confirm that we’re both happy campers, nothing less nothing more x”.

A source revealed that sparks flew between the young pair straight away after they met while out and about in Mullingar. The insider said: “Ali and Niall are from the same town but didn’t really know one another until a few months ago. Ali attends school in Alexandra College in Dublin and wouldn’t have known Niall from when they were younger. He thinks she is gorgeous and she is pretty sweet on him too but Niall’s schedule means it would be pretty hard to have a relationship with anyone.”

Harry Styles flies to US for solo project without One Direction boys

If recent reports are to be believed, One Direction lathario Harry Styles is considering solo projects in the US.

Harry has reportedly flown to Los Angeles alone to pursue a ‘big solo project’, according to the Daily Star. It was first thought that Harry may have returned Stateside without Liam, Zayn, Louis and Niall to meet up with a girl, after he was spotted leaving LAX airport in a blacked-out car with a mystery blonde.

However, the Daily Star claims Harry has returned to the US in a bid to make it on his own, after catching the eye of a number of companies who all want to meet him. A source told the British tabloid: “Harry has stacks of fans in America, it’s safe to say they absolutely love him. He’s been offered a big solo project, so he flew out to Los Angeles without the rest of the boy band.”

The source continued: “He’s been in America filming something. It may have been an advert or a film – I can’t say exactly what – but it’s worth a lot of money. He’s a poster boy in the States. He has the perfect look – cute, British, well-spoken, and girls love his curly hair. He’s a corporate company’s dream and a vast number of American firms want a piece of him.”

“All sorts of companies are vying to have him promoting their products. His family have been joking he’ll be in the Rich List before long.”

In other related news, Harry’s mum, Anne Cox, has slammed rumours suggesting her son has been romancing numerous women, stating: “Harry hasn’t got a girlfriend at the moment, there isn’t anybody on the scene.”

One Direction’s Harry Styles says Louis Tomlinson has insured his bum, just like J.Lo!

One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles has told people that fellow band member, Louis Tomlinson, has insured his bottom.
 
According to the Daily Star, Harry spoke about it during a recent 1D band rehearsal, saying: “Louis has insured his bum just like J.Lo. We support him and so does his family.”

Louis Tomlinson added that their bodyguards have been doing their best to protect the lads, but ‘passionate’ fans have touched them ‘in some unusual places’. He said: “Some would call our fans crazy, but we feel they are passionate. Some of the lads have been touched in some unusual places.”

We’re sure Harry isn’t complaining, though, as he has repeatedly been linked to a string of gorgeous women, including presenter Caroline Flack and model Emma Ostilly. Cheeky Harry has also revealed recently how he likes his ladies to wear black underwear, saying: “I like my girlfriends to wear black lingerie.” Harry went on to reveal the kind of women he would date, and the type of women he would turn down.

The teenage heartthrob said that he would turn down Kylie Minogue and Madonna if either of them came on to him, then went on to reveal that he would be happy to date Angelina Jolie, Kate Moss or Kate Winslet.
One Direction’s Harry Styles: ‘Age is just a number’
One Direction’s Harry Styles: ‘Age is just a number’

One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles has revealed that he believes age is just a number. Unless a woman is over 43, in which case Harry believes they are too old. Maybe.

In an interview with Metro, Harry Styles explained that he’s happy to date women of any age, as long as they are not any older than his mum, Anne Cox, who iss 43. Harry told Metro: “[I wouldn’t date anyone] older than my mum, and she’s 43…”

However, contrary to this claim, he stated that he fancies Carol Vorderman, who’s 51, adding: “But really it comes down to what they’re like. Age is nothing but a number.”

Harry has been linked to a string of women since One Direction were thrown into the spotlight, the most recent being blonde ex-girlfriend Felicity Skinner. However, Felicity soon took to her Twitter site to dismiss the claims, tweeting Harry’s mother saying: “Anne can you tweet that there is nothing going on with me and Harry. Some fans seem to think were back together! Hope your well x.”

While Harry has been enjoying the attention being famous has bought him, bandmate Zayn Malik has been struggling with the spotlight.

One Direction get tips from Backstreet Boys & Harry has to move, again!
One Direction get tips from Backstreet Boys & Harry has to move, again!

One Direction heartthrob Niall Horan must have been wanting some tips when he went to see The Backstreet Boys performing in London.

The young Irish star met the older band backstage and asked them for advice on fame. The blonde singer tweeted: “Amazing night! Met the backstreet boys and new kids! Super nice guys! Got some good advice!”

Maybe the handsome Harry Styles should have paid the men a visit too and asked for some security tips, as it has been claimed today that he and his family have had to leave their home in Chesire for a while due to the legions of fans camped outside the residential property.

Curly haired Harry returned to the UK last week, after a long tour of America, Australia, New Zealand and Canada, and was keen to catch up with his mum and siblings in his family home. However, hundreds of girls were, as usual, waiting outside the house and making life unbearable for them and their neighbours. Sources claim the whole family were keen to get away from it all for a while.  

One told The Sun: “The family has moved out for a few days until Harry heads back south. It’s not fair for neighbours to have random girls standing outside their houses 24/7.”

Meanwhile, it has been claimed that Simon Cowell has ordered bodyguards to keep an even closer watch over the One Direction boys than usual when they return to America next month. Some of the band – Harry in particular – have quite the reputation for being ladies men and their management team are keen to keep their image clean cut.
