Forget about the Zayn drama for a minute and turn your attention to Harry Styles, whose ears must’ve been burning during Ed’s recent interview with New Zealand radio station The Edge. While answering a bunch of fan-submitted questions, Ed answered one about “Little Things,” a song he wrote for 1D for their 2012 album Take Me Home.
“Was ‘Little Things’ written about One Direction’s little things?” Ed read aloud before laughing it off and reminding us all about a certain nude photo that made the rounds in 2012. The NSFW pic showed a guy who appeared to be Harry flashing his bod in front of a mirror. At the time, Harry adamantly denied it was him, but Ed is now telling a different story.
“Did you know Harry leaked that picture himself? He leaked his own picture...I think that’s amazing,” Ed spilled. “He was just like ‘no one knows, so I’m just gonna tell them.’”
WELP, they do now, Ed. Thanks for that!
The “Thinking Out Loud” singer-songwriter then got back to the question at hand, revealing that he definitely did NOT write “Little Things” about 1D’s...um...little things.
“[Harry] definitely hasn’t got a little thing, so no, I did not write ‘Little Things’ about little things,” he assured us.
So there we have it. Directioners, we’ll give you some time to process this information and plot out your 1D fan fiction accordingly.
