Harry Styles

Harry Styles is one-fifth of the British/Irish boyband One Direction that formed on the talent show The X Factor. One Direction's other members are Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne. They finished third on The X Factor, but went on to have massive success, reinvigorating the boy band genre and starting a British invasion in the U.S.

A few facts about Harry: He was born in Redditch, Worcestershire in England on Feb. 1, 1994. He became interested in singing at a young age and performed at various talent shows, singing competitions and even weddings. During secondary school, Harry was the lead singer of a band called White Eskimos and won a local Battle of the Bands competition with the group.

Known as the ladies' man of One Direction, Harry has been linked to many women, most notably Taylor Swift. The couple enjoyed a high profile romance in late 2012 before splitting.

One Direction, has released three albums: Up All Night, Take Me Home and Midnight Memories. The fourth album, appropriately titled Four, is set to be released Nov. 2014. The band's hit songs include "What Makes You Beautiful," "Kiss You," "Live While We’re Young," "Best Song Ever," "One Thing" and "Story of My Life."

1D fans call themselves Directioners and are known to write crazy fancitions and "dirty imagines," aka fantasies, about Harry on Tumblr. One author has even changed the fanfiction game by receiving a major book deal for her One Direction-inspired online story titled After featuring a main character named Harry.
