The Word: Harry Styles has had less sex than you think

Of all the tuneful, sweet-looking, floppy-haired boys in One Direction, Harry Styles’ hair is the very floppiest. So you’d think he’d get a lot of action. Not so, he says.

In an interview with GQ U.K. (via Celebitchy), Styles claimed he’d only ever gotten intimate with two people. “Two people. I’ve only ever had sex with two people. That’s my answer. Read from it what you will!”

OK, I guess I’ll read that it’s a totally normal and admirably restrained number for a boy of his age. Or that he’s lying. No judgment if he is. It would serve us nosy parkers right.

Styles also shot down rumors that he’s bisexual, saying, “I don’t think so. I’m pretty sure I’m not.”

Here’s a tip: If “One Direction” singer Liam Payne ever says to you, “Let me buy you a drink,” let him. Unless you’re his money manager.

Payne showed off his generosity in a big way at a party for his friend, Nigerian rapper Wizkid, when he reportedly bought his pal a bottle of Taste of Diamonds champagne that cost more than $1.5 million. The singer hasn’t commented, but an Instagram photo from designer Alexander Amosu shows him pouring the champagne for his pal.

According to the Daily Mail, Payne earned around $6.5 million this year, so he can afford to be generous – sort of. He probably shouldn’t go this big every weekend. Then again, I live in Manhattan, so a single drink is a third of my salary, too. Go for it, Liam. Live while you’re young.
