Harry Edward Styles was born on February 1 1994, in Redditch, Worcestershire, the son of Anne Cox (nÃ©e Selley) and Desmond "Des" Styles. He is descended from Norfolk farm labourers. At the age of 7 Harry's parents divorced and even though he maintained a good relationship with his father, Harry lived with his mother, and sister, Gemma Styles. Harry auditioned for British show, The X Factor (2004) in 2010 singing "Isn't She Lovely" by Stevie Wonder. He was sent through with all yes's and one no from Louis. He went through multiple rounds, until he was kicked off at Bootcamp. However, Simon Cowell believed that Harry could be brought back, and into a group. Simon then put Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, and Harry Styles into a group. Harry thought of the name "One Direction", and they first performed "Torn" at the Judges' house in Spain. In the end of the X-Factor, One Direction came in 3rd place. Even though the boys were upset, Simon talked to them saying Sony wanted to sign them for a deal the following morning. One Direction then put out their first album "Up All Night" that hit No. 1 in the charts in Australia, United Kingdom, and the United States. With their hit single, "What Makes You Beautiful", the members of One Direction are leaving girls across the world in tears speechless, at their charming looks, and unique personalities. Girls all over are falling head over heals for this British/Irish boy band, and are becoming severely popular.

I can see how you could get dragged into the bad stuff, but I've got good friends around me, good family. I think I've got my head screwed on.
A lot of the time, the way it's portrayed is that I only see women in a sexual way. But I grew up with just my mum and sister, so I respect women a lot.
You get moments all the time that kind of make you pinch yourself, some of them make you quite emotional. Winning a BRIT was a big moment because we were just so excited to be at the awards in the first place. Selling out Madison Square Garden was pretty amazing too. Then we woke to the news that our UK tour was sold out. It was crazy.
I'm quite old-fashioned. I like going out to dinner. You have the chance to talk to somebody and get to know them better.
I don't want to be viewed as a womanizer or whatever. I don't like going crazy crazy, I like having fun but it's nice to wake up in your own bed, isn't it?
He's a legend. He's incredible. David Bowie can do no wrong.
