He's going his own direction

We’ll always miss the One Direction boys as a group, but there’s no denying that since they’ve gone and followed their own directions, it’s been well and truly proven that each of them totally ~slay~ as a solo star, and according to Harry Styles, it’s also way less pressure working by yourself than with a group.

Speaking on his ahh-mazing new doco, Behind the Album, Haz spilled all his feels on making the new album.

“It just felt like there was no pressure at all. I think coming from 5 years of pressure, it was good, but it felt like pressure. It was amazing to just go polar opposite and have absolutely none.”

And while he’s totally loving doing his own thing, he revealed that he’ll always have a place in his heart for the band that got him to wear he is today.

“I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for that band… And I don’t feel like I have to apologise for that. I never felt like I was faking it.”

He also managed to throw some ever-so-sly shade at Zayn, after the Pillowtalk singer claimed after leaving 1D he ‘never wanted to be in the band’, saying,

“When you leave a band, a boy band, you feel you have to go in the complete other direction and say, ‘Don’t worry everyone, I hated it, it wasn’t me.’”
