Harry Styles is setting the record straight on whether or not One Direction's "Perfect" is about Taylor Swift. You don't think he's just going to cop to the whole thing being Tay-centric now, did you?

Instead, Harry says he writes "from personal experience," but that a song isn't "necessarily about a person."

In the USA Today Weekend Extra, Harry explained that "Perfect" is about "not taking (relationships) too serious and just enjoying what you have on that night."

When asked specifically about the speculation that "Perfect" is a response to Taylor's "Style" and "Out of the Woods," he said, "I don't really read it," adding, "I'm never going to tell someone what it means to them, because there's a lot of songs where I feel something completely different from what the writer intended me to feel. It's obviously funny to see, but it's up to everybody's individual interpretation."

Oh, Harry. Such a diplomatic answer.

He also said, "It doesn't always have to be so literal, in that you say, 'This is a love song about a girl I used to see'...Not every love song is necessarily about a person. It could be about a place or time or something where it touched you and you feel you can personify that in a song."

So, it's a little bit about dating Taylor, right? Ah, keep 'em guessing, Harry!
