Poor Harry Styles. He just wants to commit to his new carefree rock god Jagger/Bowie hybrid persona, and no-one is letting him – not the fans losing it over missing out on tickets to his insanely small-venue Australian tour, not the news outlets chortling over his failed first stage dive, and definitely not the BBC.
In an interview with Radio 1, the 22-year-old just about melted out of his seat with embarrassment when the questions about that song started in.
You know which song we mean – the one fans have been minutely dissecting from a 30-second clip, the one with lyrics about “red lips” and “white shirts”, the one that’s pretty, pretty, pretty likely to be about Styles’ brief but intense relationship with one Taylor Swift.
But bless him, he just was not ready to give it away. And that’s fine by us, as the interview has given us this absolute corker of a diptych:
