The One Direction guys have gotten plenty of awards and honors this year – but Harry Styles' newest achievement may be the most interesting. He's been named Rolling Stone magazine's "Boy of the Year of the Girl."

Huh? What? Admittedly, it took us a few re-reads of the title to understand what was going on. It's also Monday, so give us a break.

Rolling Stone calls Harry "more than a pop star"...and who are we to argue? The mag also claims "pop is a girl's world these days" and to rise to that challenge, the author notes that "Harry understands this, which is why he has become the Boy Who Matters. He knows he serves at the pleasure of a girl audience that absolutely cannot be bought, scammed, condescended to or taken for granted."

Rolling Stone makes a good point: "As far as pop is concerned, 2014 is the Year of the Girl, and Harry is the Boy of the Year of the Girl. Nobody else comes close."

This is where we would argue that collectively One Direction really fit the bill when it comes to successfully building a loyal female fanbase, but Rolling Stone singles out Harry because he checks off so many boxes: "from filthy fan-fiction to squeaky-clean teen dreams - the shiny and the sleazy, the romance and the raunch."
