You really do know that something is a phenomenon when even members of One Direction are talking about it! That’s right, 50 Shades of Grey is making ripples in the life of one Mr Harry Styles. The 18 year old told The Sun newspaper that one of his female friends forced it upon him and made him read lines from it aloud. Oo-er missus.
Now Harry is not one to shy away from the ladies having recently been linked to Made In Chelsea’s Caggie Dunlop and supermodel du jour Cara Delevingne. Oh, and not forgetting of course his penchant for older women having dated 32-year old Caroline Flack and radio DJ Lucy Horobin. But the young whipper snapper obviously doesn’t consider himself to be an expert on matters of the heart saying about the book, ‘It seems interesting. I could probably learn from it, I don’t know. I feel like it’s an educational and interesting read.’
Now we’re not sure exactly which extracts Harry read but the youngest member of 1D is sure to get an education all right and maybe learn a little more than he bargained for. Red room of pain, anyone?!
Even so, he was very keen to set the record straight about his heart throb status saying, ‘I don’t want to be viewed as a womaniser or whatever.’ In which case Harry, you might want to be a little more selective about your reading material.
Still, the thought of this cheeky chappy with a whip in hand is certainly enough to make us blush…
