When One Direction's Harry Styles went out with songstress Taylor Swift, he knew she had a reputation for slamming her exes in her music. Now, the boy band star says he's prepared for her to write a song about the demise of their relationship.
"It would be hypocritical for me to say she couldn't do it," Styles told Us Weekly. "Everybody writes songs based on personal experiences."
The 19-year-old heartthrob explains that he has no regrets about dating Swift, even though their union only lasted a few months. "I can't say I'd have dated someone less famous to avoid it," he said to the magazine.
Swift, 23, is notorious for slamming exes like Joe Jonas, Jake Gyllenhaal and John Mayer in her songs, though she has never explicitly stated that the tunes were about her famous ex-boyfriends.
Styles jokes that he expects some rough treatment from the pop star, but gives her props, saying "at least she's a great songwriter."
The "What Makes You Beautiful" singer told Us Weekly that having a relationship is hard enough, and the pressures of fame only add to it. "When you're in the opening stages of a relationship as it is, you're still under the pressure of getting to know everything about a person," Styles said.
"If you have a lot of people from outside telling you what it is and they don't even know you, telling you what your relationship is, that's weird. So I think you sort of have to block it out and just have the relationship rather than think -- we're having this relationship play out on magazine covers."
Styles reportedly had any footage including Swift removed from his band's documentary film "One Direction: This is Us," which hits theaters on Aug. 30.
