So is he out? Outed?

This is the biggest development of the story yet.

The first fully out teenage pop sensation. Sounds good to me.

He did say he had a dinner tonight, didn't sound like just a get together with friends so I imagine he's elsewhere. Still curious about his vague tomorrow night plans too. What is going on

by Anonymousreply 802/15/2013

Oh primetime was kind to us today...

Yeah, a lot of people seem to be taking it as a joke...which is odd to me. I mean it might be but it really isn't written that way...and surely people must consider the possibility at least of it being serious.

I'd love to know that about the meeting too, C.

by Anonymousreply 902/15/2013

R4 - Do you mean the attached; I am losing track a little, they seem to have published so many about Harry in the last couple of days. The article itself just says that he didn't let Taylor ruin his Valentine's Day. Of course it is written by someone else. They really do need to co-ordinate themselves a little better.

[quote] Radio 1 DJ comfort too as he spent the most romantic day of the year without his lover Harry Styles.

[quote] Grimshaw, meanwhile, was likely to be nursing a broken heart last night as he gets ready for his One Direction lover embarking on the band’s eight-month world tour. The 28-year-old breakfast host recently spoke of his dread at being without the 19-year-old.

Thanks again, C. I don't actually see a just looks like Harry is waving and it is a bit of a blur. I think the person who took it would probably have mentioned if he was smoking right then. I only wonder because of that video of him with an inhaler, which makes me doubt he'd smoke? Who knows though.

by Anonymousreply 3902/15/2013

The girl's father arranged for H to appear at the party tonight so probably a paid gig.

by Anonymousreply 4002/15/2013

LG - Not really; Friday afternoon is known to be the classic time to drop a story that you don't want to be especially talked about and the writer tagged it with James Arthur's, Rita Ora's and Nick's names but noticeable not Harry's, so it is not going to show up on anyone's google alerts.

One wonders if it was preplanned to test the waters. It seems to have come out of nowhere given their normal stories about Harry.

by Anonymousreply 4102/15/2013

Sorry maybe i was assuming he was smoking. I saw pic on FB could be a blur or cigarette and you might be right in it could be either persons hand. Just thought with him not smiling and stood in doorway.Nick has an inhaler has asthma and he smokes.

No problem, R42. I was just curious.

I can definitely see it as being a test, C. That is interesting about it not being tagged with Harry's name and published at this low-key time of week.

R42 if it's the picture of him standing by the door earlier today, I saw a clearer picture, it just shows him waving, his other hand is in his pocket.

by Anonymousreply 4502/15/2013

C, the article is very odd. Repeatedly mentioning the term 'lover' and in neither a properly serious nor jokey tone?

It only went up a few hours ago. I assumed it was published at 2.59pm as written at the top of the piece but apparently not.

It does suggest they is no injunction though?

The pictures in the article do come up in a search of both their names at about the time mentioned

by Anonymousreply 4902/15/2013

LG - Not sure about the injunction; someone posted a link to an article about them at the near the end of the previous thread, and made the following comment:

"There is some interesting information here on "interim non-disclosure orders" : By definition they are time-restricted and it seems that for the Internet contempt proceedings are rare, as online publication is apparently not considered as serious or something because it does not have the same permanency and credibility as a newspaper publication and will not be on a database"

So I think a website, even attached to a newspaper, could get away with it.

by Anonymousreply 5002/15/2013

I'm not sure what to think of it! I don't work in showbiz or journalism/pr so I don't know how it works but it seems major to me?! Like, the metro is the free paper everyone reads on the tube in the morning - I can't understand why more people aren't mentioning it? I suppose they are assuming it to be so blatant it's a joke.

The main thing I find strange though is the word 'lover' being used so many times. I can't think of a time I've ever referred to a partner, however casual, in that way. Why not use 'partner'? or 'boyfriend'?

It already was on tumblr actually, R52. That is where I saw it first a few hours ago.

by Anonymousreply 5502/15/2013

N16 - It was posted too late to make any of today's print editions and there won't be another actual print copy of the Metro until Monday and I would be very surprised if it's in that. So really it is just those who look at the website on a Friday evening, which can't be very many.

by Anonymousreply 5602/15/2013

I did a twitter search on the actual URL of the article to see how many people were talking about it and there actually aren't that many results. The oldest tweet is from 10 hours ago so the article has been up a while.

by Anonymousreply 5702/15/2013

The use of the word lover must be intentional, it's the only way they describe Harry in the whole article, whereas James Arthur is called "rumoured new man" and that they "fueled rumours that they are more than just friends". I think it is to leave absolutely no dispute in what she is saying.

I find it more weird that the article was preceded (not directly) by articles about Harry/Taylor and followed by the same.

by Anonymousreply 6402/15/2013

ahhh thanks c - well it really has been buried then - in 5 years of reading the hard copy almost every day I've never been on the metro website. I can't see it getting much traffic at all (comparative to other news outlets) The apparent lack of reaction is very interesting. I wonder if any other site will run with it now. Doubtful, as there are no direct quotes.

by Anonymousreply 6502/15/2013

It would be hard for any other news outlet to build on this as the story is not what The Metro reported on (Ora & N consoling one another etc..) but rather the way in which they reported it?

The Metro piece itself is now the 'news'

by Anonymousreply 6602/15/2013

N16 - Yes, that's what makes me wonder if it was pre-planned, not to mention you would have to be pretty mean to out him on the day that their Comic Relief single was released otherwise.

(It also might possibly explain Nick's very strange mood this morning on his show, which even he kept commenting on; he was very hyper).

I have a hard time beleiving it could have been planned, because I can't really see 1D's PR even considering a coming out for Harry right now. That said, I think the fact that this appeared so soon after Harry's birthday supports this theory a bit (as in, waiting till he's 19 so it sounds less "scandalous").

by Anonymousreply 7202/15/2013

R71 I agree with c. I think they are trying to gage the reaction.

FWB? Or as in a relationship?

by Anonymousreply 7802/15/2013

The whole thing seems so inconsequential...which is really amazingly great! I think that if this was testing the waters, it couldn't have gone any better. This is what they wanted.

by Anonymousreply 7902/16/2013

I can't help but think it was meant to be taken as a joke, though; simply because "lover" is such an odd choice of word, not one you read very often in the press ...

Also the complete lack of reaction doesn't suggest to me that this is a "test gone well", more that no one else has read anything into it. I highly doubt this is testing the waters for a "coming out" at the BRITs ...

by Anonymousreply 8002/16/2013

R80 - I agree it is very odd, especially if it is preplanned; why go with the Metro? I can't imagine there will be any PDA at the Brit's either!

The strange thing is that it's written as a straight showbiz gossip piece, the quote from Nick is given as if it was serious (she cut the bit at the end about candles etc which made it obvious he was joking) and she had no need to mention Harry at all given that it's mainly about Rita Ora. I am not particularly puzzled by the use of the word "lover" I think it was the quickest way for her to make her point, but I am surprised that both the Metro and Syco etc have let the article stand. I don't suppose we will ever really understand her motivation. It's certainly not being picked up on though.

Probably because Harry's name isn't in the headline

by Anonymousreply 8602/16/2013

Yeah exactly there are two names in the headline and neither are Harry OR Nick, no one would think it has anything to do with them. I did raise an eyebrow at them not tagging Harry too. The article comes up fairly low on the list after some other not-as-recent ones if you do a news search for harry styles nick grimshaw, but I doubt anyone would stumble on it if they were just interested in Harry. I'm really surprised there hadn't been more fuss on tumblr or twitter or stuff like that, but it just seems like the people who care are talking amongst themselves and the people who would freak out mostly haven't seen it.

I thought Ian was gay because of some comments the whole breakfast crew was making a couple of months ago after a date of his. They were teasing him about being sore/limping/exhausted and being up all night. They made a gay sex innuendo that I've totally forgot now. I remember being really surprised how blatant they were being but no one ever really commented on it. This was before people started speculating about Ian/Aimee.

No idea why L Girl is always so insistant that Harry isn't Nick's type.

Whether they're together or not - Nick likes young twinky models (which Harry classifies as) and has admitted in the past that he finds Harry attractive (pre being friends with him even)

Him and Derek are friends and if there was anything more with Derek (who I think is straight?) he would be the exception to Nick's type.

by Anonymousreply 13202/16/2013

And Nick snogged Aimee on holiday - there's a picture - so I'm guessing that's what he was referring to.

by Anonymousreply 13302/16/2013


Yeah, whether he and Harry are together or not, I don't think there's any question that Nick finds him attractive and has done for a while.

by Anonymousreply 13402/16/2013

R132, some guy commented that masculine is his type (based on his last bf) and that matches HH who I read he saw for a bit (might be rubbish) and Nicolo IMO.

It's irrelevant anyway. If 1D's camp are seemingly fine with The Metro publishing articles referring to H as N's lover, that suggests to me there is no injunction and no secret relationship in need of hiding.

Unpopular opinion I know, but that's how I see it.

by Anonymousreply 13502/16/2013

Nicolo masculine? Yeah right.

And as stated, Nick has said he finds Harry attractive so it doesn't matter what Nick's type is.

1D wouldn't want articles with Harry being referred to as Nick's lover whether or not they're true. There's enough rumors already that this article should cause concern. That's what makes it so odd.

Does this mean you're actually leaving for good LG? Farewell!

by Anonymousreply 13602/16/2013

LG - It's not so much it's an unpopular opinion, it's just a slightly odd one.

One imagines the 1D camp are not "fine" with the article but do you really honestly think they are in a position to sue for libel.

I am seriously being to wonder if instead of your self-professed dislike of Caroline Flack, you do indeed want Harry to be in a relationship with her. For someone who apparently liked the idea of Nick/Harry until recently your last comment does sound rather bitter.

R136, nope.

LG - nothing wring with an unpopular opinion. If no one took that position we wouldn't have a thread worth debating.

For what it's worth, for the first time I am comfortable they are sleeping together without any real doubt.

Lover is a classic word used in UK media when a publication is sure of a physical relationship.(but possibly unsure of emotional tie (eg boyfriend)

They know something. Whether its a PR test or a leak I don't know

by Anonymousreply 13902/16/2013

That is an interesting differentiation, JJ. You could be onto least in terms of what is known to the media. They may have to wait for either Harry or Nick to comment (that may take a while, haha) before being able to say there is an emotional relationship as well.

by Anonymousreply 14002/16/2013

Derek Balasberg is gay, he had a longterm boyfriend though I've no idea if they're still together. FB thing is likely a joke - she's probably just his hag.

Oh and the pic of Nick kissing Aimee is from 2011 if it's the one I'm thinking of.

And yes Nick made it clear he fancied H numerous times before they even became friends so I'm not sure why people are still debating that!? The argument over what Nick's type is has been done to death anyway. LG when you say stuff like you think Nicolo is masculine I really do wonder if you are on the wind up.

C, sorry, I didn't mean to sound bitter. I just can't help but wonder if we are all being played? (H once said that the key to privacy was to put out lots of conflicting rumours to confuse everyone)

As for CF & H. I'm her age and have a nephew H's age. Consequently, was appalled by their 'thing'. Perhaps that's why I appear preoccupied with that angle.

JJ, you were always a bit of a sceptic if I recall? Your change of heart does sway me slightly.

It won't let me post the link but I don't think Derek B was on their holiday this year, there's a Harpar's Bazarre article that talks about his holiday with Alexa being before that, then Alexa going away with a different group for New Year (including Nick).

Pringle, I meant masculine in relation to H (who looks considerably younger and feminine IMO)

by Anonymousreply 14602/16/2013


I don't think it's anything as cynical as being played (at least not by Nick and Harry). I think they're just getting on with their lives as they want to and mostly ignoring how it's interpreted. Neither of them strike me as people who let the media and public perception dictate how they behave, unless forced to do so by their respective jobs of course. Nick rarely comments directly on media stories about himself and Harry certainly doesn't.

by Anonymousreply 14702/16/2013

Hey LG

Never a sceptic but always have believed that in all relationships there can be layers, confusion, one way feelings and friendships with odd boundaries.

Add to this a massive media interest, a 19 year old and a group of people with conflicting interests it's hard to tell. (2 PR companies, agents, a major record label and the differing moralities of US, worldwide and UK)

In addition there's the female married DJ before CF and I was unsure.

Now though, I am sure the use of word is not accidental and I am absolutely sure there is no managerial benefit to a N/H relationship sexually (though a BFF ha huge benefits for all)

by Anonymousreply 14802/16/2013

LG - To be completely honest, I really don't think there was a thing between Harry and Caroline at all. But regardless of my opinion if you look at the similarities between the timings, and the media reporting with his relationship with Taylor with that of Caroline it really looks suspicious regardless of whether you think he is gay or not.

I don't think we are being played; N16 and I have personal accounts, there are so many random tweets of sightings etc, and many which just seem to refer to them as a couple - such as the earlier one from a fashion girl lamenting that Harry wasn't with Nick, without even mentioning yesterday's article (and lets face it, she is not going to want to lose her job over something like that, and if she is publishing lies the Metro are not going to be happy as they are not really a tabloid). And finally, why would it help for anyone to think erroneously that Nick and Harry were romantically involved; from a marketing point of view it's seriously not good for either of them.

by Anonymousreply 14902/16/2013

JJ, sorry, 'open minded' is probably more appropriate than 'sceptical'!

C, don't get me wrong, what you say sounds reasonable. There are just a few things that make it less clear cut for me.

by Anonymousreply 15002/16/2013

LG - no worries an for what it's worth I have a controversial view too.

Whilst it is hugely unlikely to me that CF an NG could both have some reality I do not discount altogether.

Stranger things have happened with my friends when we were younger.

My overriding feeling though is that were this non-famous people and instead people who were friends of friends, I wouldn't doubt they were sleeping together.

D Blasberg is gay and a horrid social climber who pimps out male models who have no recourse. He also has the professional skills of a senior newspaper editor (if we are talking about a senior in high school).

Nick is so far above that, it's not even funny.

by Anonymousreply 15302/16/2013

LG, I appreciate that the H/C was odd for you because of how you personally related to the age difference but that doesn't mean there was anything wrong with it for them, people get on differently, and I'm not really comfortable with age difference bashing. Nick is only a few years younger than C, to be fair. Your dislike of the H/C situation and of her particularly because of it being so-called inappropriate has always rubbed me the wrong way more so than your bringing her up and questioning things. It's one thing to speculate etc but let's not casually assume there was anything inappropriate about H and C having a relationship if they did.

by Anonymousreply 15402/16/2013

C, I agree about the reporter not wanting to lose her job over something like that. It might just be a tabloid but you still have to be able to back it up or at least claim it was from "sources" if you're printing outright lies, which is usually the strategy used, but this article didn't mention any sources and didn't even couch it with "alleged". Absolutely no way do I think they would sue for libel, because that would just draw more attention and let's face it more lies have been printed about H before and he's hardly commented. I'm surprised I haven't seen anything interesting between tweeted at the journalist who wrote the article, comments from others and so on.

by Anonymousreply 15602/16/2013

R154 I agree. To go with the comparison anyway, Nick has a niece only a year younger than H, so. Relationships with people of the same age can obviously be different depending on the person. H surrounds himself with people older than him and seems to have a lot of genuine/equal friendships with older people, he definitely seems mature for his age, or an "old soul"

R154, you're right. It's just an opinion. But one I'm sticking to vehemently based on personal values.

by Anonymousreply 15902/16/2013

R158 I always suspected that too, especially because I noticed Nick was particularly quiet about his vacation before he left and then the first couple of days there (social media-wise). I think it's plausible to think Harry might have gone to PR for a couple days before heading to the Virgin Islands to sell "Haylor". Harry was MIA before the vacation and everyone just assumed he was with Cal, but I remember there being rumours about him in PR (and they were based on airport spottings I believe, not just speculation). Again, I could be wrong and like you said, we'll never know.

by Anonymousreply 16002/16/2013

LG - No one is against you having, and expressing, a personal opinion, what is perhaps a little tiring at times is that as soon as you see a tweet that links Nick in anyway to another person, be it someone he has known for years as a friend, someone who is straight, or in a long term relationship, or someone he apparently has just had a brief conversation with, you appear to comment that plainly he can't be involved with Harry because of his interest in this other person. It is quite normal to talk to friends, colleagues, strangers etc and even flirt with them without it in anyway being relevant to your relationship with a significant other.

For example he (according to a tweet) is going to Henry Holland's after show party, there will be a lot of models there and no doubt he will talk to a lot of them and probably be photographed with them too but this does not really mean anything more than that he, like many people in media, is sociable.

Anyway, I don't want you to feel I am getting at you, because I am not trying to, and if this sounds as if I am, my apologies, I am just not expressing myself very well, which is my problem, not yours.

In response to the the thing about Harry being spotted in PR - him, Cal, and Jen were spotted flying OUT of PR at the end of their trip. Which suggests the possibility that they flew into the area via PR. And since they had obviously chartered a yacht at some point they could have been anywhere before stopping in Virgin Gorda.

R165 - Don't think he arrived with them though, as seem I remember Cal tweeting something about their first morning there and that was after Harry was already there with Taylor.

R164 - I agree it's a possibility but given that he appears to be staying with Nick a lot, and both N16 and I were told they were a couple, along with quite a few of the tweets mentioning this it looks as if it may be something more exclusive at the moment. There have also been nothing to suggest they are actually seeing anyone else either.

I also think we would be seeing some tweets at least if they were hooking up with anyone else at the moment.

It looks like 1D were still in Yorkshire earlier tonight. Have no idea if they are coming back to London tonight or tomorrow. They had been rumoured to be coming back yesterday but that obviously wasn't the case.

Not sure when the Brits rehearsal is for 1D, read something about that today but the article mentioned TS and H being kept apart therefore I didn't bother reading it.

On another note. I agree with whoever thought H and N possibly met up in PR. I'm of the opinion that it could have been possible.

by Anonymousreply 17902/16/2013

Looked it up a bit, Harry wasn't spotted until dinnertime on January 3 when he showed up on the Virgin Islands (That's when the first pic of him and Taylor got put up on twitter). So he was missing from the evening of NYE after the public Times Square kiss until then. Same with Taylor I believe.

So he might have just got a connecting flight then.

I mean I imagine he'll go to some UK dates and they've been hinting around the European leg enough it might happen but whereas the other boys can fly their girlfriends out when they're in NA, I doubt that's going to happen with Nick, also cause he's so damn busy too! Maybe a weekend but who knows. Either way it's a long time to go not seeing each other that's a pretty serious commitment

The football jerseys were not from Harry. He supports the Packers and would not have purchased an opposing team's jerseys.

And is obviously trying to start rumors about her "relationship" with Harry.

So far she's just verified every rumor - it's easy to say everything is true because then if something gets proved true then she's right. It's harder to prove something isn't true.

Haylor was obviously false and she was wrong about that but she can easily back track and say that she just meant they hooked up once or twice during the PR thing.

My parents told me I need to get counseling over my 1D obsession. LOL. I can't help it. They are the hottest most gorgeous men who ever stalked the planet. They are so nice, sweet and loveable. My every waking thought is on them. I dream about them at night. My mom says it's not normal to be obsessed about celebs. I think it is normal. I am going through exactly the same thing, no sleep, worry, fatigue, anxiety. I'm a wreck over the personal lives of total strangers (even though I feel closer to them than family). My ex dropped me because he said I cared more about people Ii would never meet than I did about him. He was right. Harry and Grimmy are my life.

by Anonymousreply 24402/18/2013

R239 there have been more positive stories about him but I suspect that might be due to an increased focus on Taylor and the antics of Zayn?

I agree that I don't think N or H will ever say anything about it. Both are notoriously tight lipped about things they want to keep hidden. I don't think it's fair on either of them to expect such statements.

by Anonymousreply 24502/18/2013

244, your parents are totally right, if you are so invested in Harry/Grimmy as a couple I'm afraid you will be disapointed. They don't look like a couple, maybe fwb type of friends. Harry seems also interested in his bandmate Louis and these two look like they were/are intimate (all the signs are there).

by Anonymousreply 24602/18/2013

I actually am considering counseling. I think about Harry and Louis constantly. I can't sleep due to worry about whether they are happy or wondering if their relationship will work out in the long run. I think I need help. I can't function at school and my parents are about to ban everything related to One Direction from the house. I am 19, I think they are going overbored.

by Anonymousreply 24802/18/2013

I'm 99% sold on Harry and Nick being together, but I really don't think Harry and Louis have anything going on. At most, I believe they might have fooled around in the past, but the "sexual tension" between them is the same between all the boys in the band. If you look at the "larry" tag on tumblr with a bunch of slowed down gifs and cleverly edited footage, you might think there's something there. In fact, if you go to every pairing's tag on tumblr you might end up thinking they're all real. I did believe for while there was something more between H and L, but then I went and look at the actual footage and pictures of them interacting with each other and with the other boys and the only thing that's clear to me, is that 1D is just five boys who are distinctly close and who are not shy about showing physical affection to each other.

by Anonymousreply 24902/18/2013

R233 If Nick was so creepy I don't think Harry's mother and sister would be so friendly with him, do you? He is well liked by his colleagues and indeed by most people who meet him. Either you are a Moyles fan, a Larry shipper or are homophobic and don't like the fact that Harry Styles has gay mates.

by Anonymousreply 26502/18/2013

Famous amongst a small sector of 1D fans outside of the UK is different to actually being famous outside of the UK - he'd never get reported on singularly or for the sake of himself, and barely does because of Harry anyway. He gets reported on in the UK because he's a household name.

He does nothing in the US, having his name known over there (or most other countries) doesn't really have any impact, positive or negative. Listeners elsewhere don't get counted because they're not license payers.

Nick's not even famous outside of the UK except for a horde of fangirls who keep tabs on him because he's a ~threat to their precious LARRY or want to see him boning Harry Styles.

Metro article re:lover dropped then suddenly they get to talk to Harry direct. Maybe a coincidence.

I am becoming more suspicious rather than less and imagine there is every possibility that IF they are seeing each other they are deliberately staying out of the way and regrouping whilst working out how to handle everything.

Alternatively, of course, they could have fallen out or broken up, these things do happen........

by Anonymousreply 28002/18/2013

R279 Doubt they fell out/ broke up (if they are indeed together) judging from Nick's giggly attitude when One Direction and Harry were mentioned on the show today.

They were a question on showquizness today- question being "what have 1D been told to tone down by their management" with the answer being "womanizing". There was lots of dead air and stifled laughter when they were mentioned, especially when a caller made a comment on how you "only really think about Harry when you think of 1D". Matt Fincham cut in to say something along the lines of "Nick, after you" and then there was more dead air and Nick giggling and changing the subject.

Another caller brought up Nick going on tour with One Direction, which was also met with giggles.

I think it is highly likely that after the Metro outing it has been suggested that they don't go out of their way to be seen together in public. They probably will be at the Brits, but then it would be odd if they weren't.

lots / R281 - The third question on Showquizness this morning was highly amusing (I am still amazed that they have not had any real problems with callers mentioning Harry and Nick on air) and certainly did nothing to dispell from the fact that they are a couple.

The Grazia interview which was linked to earlier was only from last night and given that Harry was saying that he wanted Nick to help him with his DJ'ing (I love the fact that he chose the one hobby Nick could openly be seen helping him with; what better excuse to be together publicly) so I don't any there has been any chance of a falling out, just perhaps a little prudence.

Just had a listen of the show this morning. Nick was on great form. Yes agreed I think we discount a break up for the moment, judgin by the amount of hilarity (IF they are together)

Seems like normal service is resumed.

by Anonymousreply 28902/18/2013

R287 I'm not surprised he didn't go the Burbery show, the boys had at least some time off yesterday (as Louis was at the Topshop show with his gf, Liam was apparently at the zoo and Niall was hanging out with his hairdresser-though was later song writing with a member of the vaccines)and with the Brits and their tour right around the corner I assume they are extremely busy rehearsing.

I think they just had a break to eat and play playstation, but I am very skeptical that they had the day off (or enough time for Harry to go to the fashion show).

Nick was at his friend Ashley's fashion show, though I have yet to see any pics.

by Anonymousreply 29002/18/2013

I don't see any fall out between Harry and Nick. When they are together we normaly see them (Harry's two days very public birthday anyone?) or hear about them (usually Nick, his friends and fans who spott them inform us on twitter). When they are together we know. But Harry was in Yorkshire for more than a week, is normal we didn't hear about them. What caution, what hiding, Harry and Nick are a very open talking from what I saw. And imo they are not in an exclusive relationship, they seems more like FWB.

by Anonymousreply 29102/18/2013

I appreciate it was a big weekend for Nick but its unlike him to cancel on someone, in my view. The supposed DJ battle last night became a one man affair and I could imagine a deliberate attempt to calm things with the printed press.

From what limited amount I have heard from this am's breakfast show, Nick was attempting, at least a little to slow the H and 1d references but Showbot struck.

FYI I imagine showbot to be at least somewhat prepped the working day before.

by Anonymousreply 29202/18/2013

R291 - Not too sure how you would know if they were spending time at their own or friend's houses, but regardless of that, given that one presumes they don't generally go out of their way to be seen getting off in public one wonders how people know that they are in private unless they do obviously appear to be a couple.

For me, it's tweets like the attached which really don't go along with FWB idea.

JJ - Yes, Matt Fincham was away this weekend, so it would have been Friday (and before the Metro article).

Nick said on the show today that there was a celebrity in the studio with him. He said that's why they were worried when Tina said the cameras flashed on for a minute.

He then went on to say that it was a duo but had just mentioned it being one person a few times before he said it was a duo.

Any idea who it could have been? Harry? If they were supposed to DJ together and Nick dropped because of the article and Harry left soon after the DJ set was done then it would make sense for him to go to Nick's after. Plus he said his friend said it was alright if he wore the same shirt from the night before.

MyDaily accounts Harry being very pally with Dominic Jones ('playfighting' she calls it); I think he's friends with a few more fashion people and not through Nick. Isn't he sort of friends with the head of the fashion council? I'm sure he's close to people other than the band, Ed and Nick's friends, without needing them as a connection.

I've never got a vibe off of JC ... And he's obviously happily married now. Suppose it might well be true though.

I know that people have gone off him a bit recently, but he is Nick's friend and I doubt he'd ever push anything that far - no further than Nick pushes things with everyone else.

I had hoped Harry might be at Tom Ford, but it seems not. Is there anyone he's likely to take time out to see tomorrow? I suppose if they're rehearsing it's not possible.

It has people young and older paying attention to the band.

I'm not sure if 1D would have ever really hit the fame that they did without selling that sort of media image. I really think that 1D is much more about the image and the relationships than the music.

There are pictures of Harry leaving directly from the building so paps were clearly waiting, wasn't exactly a secret back exit. Why would she want to avoid being seen with H? Many reasons, not sure why you're asking this.

I don't mean to poke holes in everything you're saying, and of course he could have been hooking up with her, but it's all very weak evidence.

LG.. U are willing to believe some source that said they saw the girl all over Harry but ur not willing to believe people who put their names to it saying they have seen Harry and Nick all over each other.. I dont know what going on in ur mind but it makes no sense.

by Anonymousreply 33502/18/2013

I think it is a little strange that N didn't DJ with H after all there were several tweets before the event saying they would both be attending. I didn't know about the joint DJing till the article by Grazia. Obviously H's explanation of getting up early would have always been the case. So it appears something made N not do the DJing last night.

LG is trolling again...

Why take tiny, isolated snippets about a possible hook-up and spin them into a new conflicting theory unless you get a kick out of it?

We may take tiny snippets, but the vast amount of them is how we build our picture.

by Anonymousreply 33802/18/2013

To be fair, LG I think you may be trolling with that comment, I have just read the article and comments and this is the full line :

"Mystery woman is Billie JD Porter. She was all over Harry last night but he just seemed a bit embarrassed to be honest."

So perhaps not someone he was going home with.

In addition the Daily Mail describe Nick as "the main man in his life" which for DM is really quite a statement (I still have no idea where there dislike of him comes from), and four of the comments reference this (with added LOLS).

I've attached it in case anyone actually wants to read it.

R335, simply trying to remain open-minded.

L Girl, I would take your opinions more seriously if you didn't completely believe everything printed in the daily mail. or the comments below the daily mail. You flat out refuse to believe tweets or anything linking Harry to Nick at this point, yet you'll happily believe the shit posted in the mail/sun/mirror and even worse, believe the comments of those posting below. Complete double standards. You cannot take those any more seriously than a tweet. Its frankly annoying. You also, for example, took the view that as far as you were concerned the fact Caroline went to Harry's bday party as proof they were still together. Yet you dismiss every single time Harry and Nick are together as any kind of proof. Again, double standards. This is what annoys people. Bring in your differing views, but you cannot double standard the 'evidence' people bring to the Harry and Nick table. and thats what you are doing. I'm willing to bet if Harry and Nick left by the back door and in separate cabs a la yesterday, you would says its cos they are 'just mates', they happened to leave at the same time and were going to separate houses.

LG - It's not to do with sharing my level of certainty; I would not expect you, or anyone else, to (apart from N16 who is in a similar position). It is about jumping on every photograph of Harry with a woman/girl who is not obviously a fan and immediately posting that he is plainly involved with them. (And in a thread about Nick rather than Harry).

There have been no tweets or comments or anything else that links him to anyone but Nick (we will discount Louis for the sake of this conversation as that is different) for months. Given how "tweet-happy" everyone is how would this possibly be the case given that girls even tweet when Harry has kissed their friends on the cheek or met him in a Starbucks.

I don't think anyone minds your questioning, a lot of other people are as well, but I am unsure of what the "everything opposing" (rather than apposing? as in against rather than next to?) Nick and Harry is. I am not aware of anything which as been seen to actually show that they are not together; apart of course from PR stories in the press, and even then, when they could, they slipped in comments about Nick.

I'm also fairly certain at some point you mentioned 'case closed' about Flack and Harry due to her attendance at something with Harry recently, and that it had convinced you. You say you have reasons but you'll never explain them other than 'things in the press' which none of us have ever seen or your colleagues. I understand people want to keep fairly secretive about their work on here, but N16, C and others have given as much 'proof' as they can or at least stories from their colleagues.

I find it very odd that L Girl, who once so staunchly defended the Nick and Harry theory with the many tweets from "media insiders" and "people who would know", now takes her lead from Daily Mail commenters. If this was just about what you'd heard from your colleagues re: Flack then I would understand; however, it seems like you have suddenly turned to believe about every woman Harry is linked to by the press. Stories which, in the past, you readily dismissed. You also fail to hear or see the full story before you jump in the deep end saying it's most likely a hook up.

Each to their own, but your turn around is fairly astounding.

Personally I'll wait until there is clear proof Harry is with anyone, before saying it's "case closed" or whatever. Male or female. Right now evidence points most clearly to Nick. I thought his comment to Grazia about it not being "weird" was actually very defensive; but that could be defensive of any form of relationship which is being questioned quite like theirs.

And quite frankly I don't think there is any clear or overwhelming proof that he is seeing any woman at all right now. Billie, Caroline, Eve ... There is no woman, other than the very clearly platonic Lou (or Sam), his old school friends or his mother and sister who he has been spotted with. And he is spotted almost anywhere he goes - especially when it's with a girl/woman. I find it hard to believe he could be successfully hiding a relationship.

As many have said, he may also simply be single. And possibly not even playing the field.

by Anonymousreply 36902/18/2013

R368 Haha wouldn't that be great!

To add to my previous comment, it's no wonder he's defensive - just seen a tweet saying Nick is a "pa*do" for hanging out with Harry. Ridiculous and inaccurate; offensive; libelous really. It's shameful that people can make this accusations on such a public forum, when they are clearly so uneducated and being almost wilfully ignorant. I also think it's very disrespectful to actual victims of sexual abuse, but that's another discussion, really.

When people have these reactions, in the current social climate (read: the BBC's current social situation), is it any wonder that a couple with an age difference where one is younger would feel the need to hide? The implications on Harry's career aside, I imagine that IF something is happening, it would be incredibly precarious for Nick to be open about it.

A real shame, when for many straight couples with the same or larger age gap; or for any couple where theage gap is the same (or greater), but the younger is just that bit older; you don't get this kind of prejudice or name calling.

I think even just one year for Harry would make a difference, but he's in a situation where many people still see him as the baby-faced little boy who auditioned for X Factor, or the young looking seventeen year old who alledgedly slept with Flack. (And I have never felt that their age difference is really an issue, more that I don't like the woman and don't see how they are compatible; they seem like very different people, different interests, different social set.)

by Anonymousreply 37002/18/2013

Because I knew nothing about N or H before I stumbled on the early October threads in Datalounge - I spent a few evenings watching YouTube vids of the progression of 1D as a group on The X Factor from 2010-11(?). There was a silly filler scenario of young Harry and a bevy of women (contestants?) on the show who ALL thought they were 'dating' Harry. Boy, was he in trouble.

I am so sure that he is tired of being papped and written about with whoever he is standing by or exiting a building in camera viewfinder range. If there was, in fact, a request by their management to all 1D members to tone down the womanizing, I think he is more than willing to follow that and is probably relieved after the last couple of years of media gossip of him and women.

If he was changing tables to escape attention of admirers and being 'embarrassed' by anyone 'hanging all over him' then he is trying to limit this media attention.

by Anonymousreply 37102/18/2013

C, yes I meant 'apposing'

To be clear, I have no 'proof' of anything and have never claimed to. If I had, I wouldn't still be discussing the subject. All I have is personal interpretation of info available to all and a chat with colleagues who claim to have heard nothing (That's all I mean when I refer to 'evidence' it's not something I can prove)

Clearly, the above is not enough to conclude anything. Even if I think I'm sure of something (CF) something else will come along and change my mind. My general uncertainty on this subject means it takes very little to sway me so i react quickly (maybe too quickly)

That said, since xmas, I've noticed a number of things (all mentioned before) that have lead me to question H&N in terms of a relationship. Consequently, I most likely pick up on things that confirm that view (albeit subconsciously) as that's where my head is on the subject.

I'm not asking anyone else to agree with me. It's just my view, take it of leave it.

I mean the article about Rita for gods sake, they've been friends for months.

C, I would have to look into UK law more to be sure but generally online publications can definitely be subject to the same legal ramifications as print publications. They could be charged with libel over anything printed and I would imagine they're definitely subject to injunctions as well. The bit from that article about injunctions that said it was harder to hold online stuff accountable was referring more to stuff like Twitter, or online users spreading information (possibly anonymously) but an actual news source would still be expected to follow injunctions rules, as far as I know. Although that just surprises me more because I definitely would have thought there was an injunction around them from the way papers were behaving and the numerous references to it. I suppose it's possible the metro broke the injunction but they could definitely be held liable if that's the case. What's interesting in this case is that the parties involved may not want to charge or say anything because it would draw attention they don't want. Alternatively the Metro might have thought that the as revenue they'd get from hits (it was their top viewed story that day after all) would be worth whatever fallout they might incur, but I don't know enough to compare that.

by Anonymousreply 39902/19/2013

Yeah, I agree, R399. I don't think websites that are part of well-known mainstream media can get away with breaking a n injunction. So either there isn't/wasn't one or it has lapsed. As for libel, they must be really sure of themselves and as you said "management" making a fuss about it would draw attention to it, particularly if it is in fact true and they can't actually sue.

My minimal legal knowledge:

Injunctions have to be vey specific about what they can and cannot include. For example they may be restricted from publishing pics within 100m of their homes or using language that implies a physical relationship. It will be for a fixed period and could be applied for a renewal with different restrictions.

All media could be prosecuted but ultimately it's the fear of litigation that restricts printed press. Most websites have no money so aren't as worried and the PR of sueing a member of general public (eg twitter outing) would be disastrous.

Super injunctions restrict people from reporting on the existance of any injunction.

This tends to only restrict professional media as people oh find out about a super-j when they infringe it. So the person with injunction can decide if it's worth telling a publication or not.

Every paper has a legal department and is likely if there were a injunction in place - articles will have to be Pre-checked for infringement.

Can any journos let me know if this is correct?

Despite all this I doubt one is in place. Too messy and even withiut one press will still be fearful of implying something that can't be proven. Being a couple or in a relationship can't be proven. They need a snogging pic or similar (see portia de Rossi outing)

by Anonymousreply 41002/19/2013

So if is not any superinjunction in place, can we say those tweets claiming it is one are bulshitt, and in fact maybe all this Harry and Grimmy are a couple OMG!!!" may be a big lie? I don't think Harry wants to come out right not, he is under contract to looks straight. I think Grimmy is trolling us, like the morning he instagrammed a photo of him with a unknown male in bed, very well knowing the fans will think of Harry. Even if we later find out that Harry was in Ghana in that particular day. Or the instagramed photo of Grimmy with his legs on someone knees, who supposed was Harry (even if the unknown legs were too thick or short to be H and we know that evening he spent his time with Teasdales).

I think it is possible that there was an injunction at some point or people were told there was one to try and prevent them from saying anything. The idea that someone from Nick or Harry's circle, including them, is spreading this for fun is just not logical. Not everyone who has said they know that Harry and Nick are together has said anything about an fact very few have. I mean even C said the person saying there was an injunction was not that certain of it. I think the media would be reluctant to out Harry/them as a couple regardless and metro really is an exception for whatever reason.

by Anonymousreply 41302/19/2013

O,I don't believe for a second Nick didn't know what people will think when he took those pictures. He is too smart, I don't think we should suspect him of naivete. He is a very good friend of Harry, I don't think he will encourage such speculation of a relationship if it is real. He will keep his mouth shut (because he is known to be a very private guy about his romantic life) and be discret about them. I think Nick use this as publicity, this ambiguity is good for him and his show (they share the same PR team after all).

by Anonymousreply 41402/19/2013

R414, 411, I don't think N posted those pics to deliberately 'troll' but I would agree with the rest of your posts. It was those pics that started the doubt in my mind re H&N.

And don't forget the instagramed picture on Christmas day at Nick's house whith just some arms who conveniently displayed "Things I can't" tattoo of Harry. It was Aimee who took the photo but I bet with Nick's approval.

by Anonymousreply 41602/19/2013

I don't think at this point Nick is at all playing that card, maye sometimes on the radio but I am doubtful he is being purposely ambiguous with his Instagram photos. I don't think he is that obsessed with what we're all speculating on and is just doing what he wants (within reason).

by Anonymousreply 41702/19/2013

LOLLLLLLL, Nick is a very practical person, he wants his show to succeed, of course he wants to be in papers, to be talked, so his frienship with Harry is a big help. Bonus the ambiguity of a romantic involvement.

by Anonymousreply 41802/19/2013

Given that R411/R414/R416 used the line

"I don't think Harry wants to come out right not, he is under contract to looks straight."

I think it is entirely possible that they are a Larry shipper, and not perhaps someone who has an interest in Nick at all.....

by Anonymousreply 41902/19/2013

The rumors of an injunction could have just been an easy way to explain "nothing big will make it to the press" without going into detail about the relationship between tabloids and PR teams or the fincial incentive of posting continuous Harry/Girl articles versus one BIG time story of Harry/Nick or the tricky legal/moral issue of outing someone in the press (you'd need facts and pics)

The instagram pics in bed could easily have just been friends (even if it was Harry they could still just be friendly) and as stated before: the legs aren't actually too thick or short and Harry easily could have met up with Sam after. I'm not saying that it is Harry just that it's possible.

by Anonymousreply 42002/19/2013

Could it be possible that Harry's pr team have asked/persuaded the media not to run any big 'shock horror Harry's gay' stories but not said anything about quietly mentioning/suggesting things, so as to slowly let more people catch on so he can come out of the closet without too much fuss?

Meanwhile they can continue to run all their womaniser stories and cash in on that, win win situation really

My comment that it was "entirely possible" that you were "Larry shipper" was based on the fact that you apparently, from your comments, believe that Harry is gay but are seemingly rather against him having a relationship with Nick. Now, obviously, since you have put me right, I can tell you don't believe in Louis and Harry's' mutual adoration, but you can see it was an easy mistake to make.

Well I suppose make of these pictures what you will. However, I would say that for someone with a boyfriend she's very forward. Then again, in a loud club setting, you're going to lean close into someone to talk. I wonder if they've just met, for how she's touching him? Perhaps not, if, as someone says, she's friends with Sam T. People seemed very adamant she's taken though.

C, you know, till Christmas I believed Harry and Nick were having sex (as fwb or a couple). But the obvious publicity of their relationship, the misleading instagramed photos, the very public display of their friendship on those two days of birthday party, the innuendos and the countinuously mention of Harry by Nick in his show, and many other things, make me to reconsider my thinking. What really shocked me is H/N very suspiciuos behaviour on bday party; when drunk you don't have many inhibitions,they didn't show any kind of intimacy normal for two people fucking (and there are about 1 thousand photos from that day).

Hmm, see I think if you were Harry Styles, you would still be careful when drunk in a public place. Or he at least was surrounded by slightly less drunk people who were watching out for him. Nick being one of them. I think the hug pics we have from them are as close as we'll ever see them, friends or more, and was fuelled by alcohol, I doubt they'd have hugged otherwise in view of paps or certainly hidden paps as the photos are from a distance. I can quite imagine Harry being pulled back from Nick by friends Being reminded. If they are indeed together.

Just out of curiosity N16, have you ever bumped into Billie around London?

by Anonymousreply 44702/19/2013

R438 - Fair enough. I don't really agree with you over the instagram photos. The one with the ring was posted when Nick knew it was obvious Harry was in Africa, the one with the "legs" really could be any of his friends as there is nothing really identifiable about the other person and the one taken at Christmas was posted by Aimee and not him.

As to the birthday photographs, the early ones show them hugging when they are sober, but there is nothing to really indicate that Nick was actually drunk that evening. By the time Harry was, he was being "wrangled" by Theo and being kept away from Nick; although apparently according to an eye-witness at the time he was making a rush for the car which Nick was in when the minder grabbed him.

I don't think Nick has increased his actual mentions of Harry; all of those recently have been made initially by someone else, and he certainly is not making any innuendo about him; that's all down to the papers, and neither of them have any control over them.

I think the difference is that they have both largely been in London for the last month or so which was not the case for the last couple of months of 2012, especially when Harry was tied up with Haylor, and have just been seeing each other more often. After the week in the summer when they were together constantly, this has been positively restrained; particularly during the last couple of days when Nick has cancelled his planned appearences at events Harry has attended.

The article speculating over H and N is interesting but tbh I think there'll always be rumblings about them and they'll never admit it until 1D is over, or they break up, or if they stay together for years and decide to get married etc. Think the last option is completely unlikely but I'm not one for doom and gloom :)

Maybe not a full on injunction, but it is noteworthy that the only articles speculating on h/n have been on American websites. Unless the British rags have more respect for not outing celebs? Like I've said before I signed off, I think at the very least there is a "gentleman's agreement" with the British press to not report on it.

Also nothing that dodgy about the Celeb Juice comment. Absolutely in the mood of the show and NG has been vocal on his 1D crush.

Far more weird for me was Russell Howards well-documented speculation on the oddity of the relationship and the way the press covered his comments

The Sun and Gordon Smart was the originator I think with the Mail and Now covering his comments (as did many others and the online world too)

by Anonymousreply 47702/19/2013

I think Harry's comment the other day about how there was nothing "weird" about his relationship with Nick and how they were both "equally stupid" or something had a lot to do with that Russel Howard article. To me it sounded like he was referring to the criticism over the age gap, like he was trying to say they were both equals.

by Anonymousreply 47802/19/2013

JJ - Oh yes, although to be fair to Russell Howard, the comments were made on Richard Herring's Leicester Square Theatre podcast which doesn't exactly have a huge number of listeners, so I don't think he himself was expecting his comments to be picked up upon.

Gordon Smart on the other hand would have had to have taken notes from the audio as there is no published script, so he was seriously seeking out specific material.

R478 - Yes, I agree, it did sound as if he was emphasizing that they were equals; which is understandable however one views their "friendship".

Whilst Im a fan of these two (I am I promise-even get up early on occasion to listen to R1), I have no sympathy and I cannot stand how the press is effectively allowing these games as it makes for webhits. (This is true of all the celeb fodder)

They are both actively (and quite within their rights) courting this fame, the Instagram, twitter, radio mentions, the fashion week, the Public birthday parties. All of it.

Both have reputations for being really good guys but that doesnt mean they aren't ferociously ambitious.

I doubt its that calculated but it absolutely is intentional to court this much press. NOw they just have to work out how close they can sail to the edge before backing off.

The reason I am interested is that unlike most media staged relationships this has an element of real and an element of smarter than the average celeb about it.

My frustration is that the press dont seem to be interested in finding out the real story. (on any of these people)

This thread isn't about Harry and Louis, oh god, this is going to go on for ages. Harry spends a lot of his time with Nick, including staying over at Nick's, and Louis is spending a lot of time with his girlfriend. I'm sure they're still very close friends, but they've definitely made the decision to not be as public with their friendship after the rumors got out of control, so it's impossible to know how much time they spend together when they aren't with Nick/Eleanor, so this discussion can really only go in circles.

But yeah, it's pretty clear that Harry spends a lot more of his time time with Nick than Louis or Ed/anyone else that was mentioned, and they've definitely settled into various domestic behaviour which is why some people do think they might be more than FWB and an actual relationship. IMO, Nick's involvement in Harry's bday, and even their tactile behaviour there, did seem a lot more couple-y than friends.

HI R492

FIrstly, I have no interest at all in other relationships of Harry so its very difficult for me to say the differences. This is not meant disrespectfully , I just have minimal info.

What I am certain of is that for me, (and I cant talk for anyone else) I hvae no interest in looking for an "air" of romance/intimacy as I think that tends to be the realms of tumblr gifs and classic McFly gaybaiting and also sometimes unconsummated relationships (see most great screen couplings and the tension that goes once they were known to be physical together)

I will concede though that nothing particularly in their conversations on radio seems to convey a sense of intimacy and that were they together in May, Call or Delete is a very odd thing to do to a friend"

However, I have the word of two friends of friends working in press now that the press believe they are sleeping together (though one does not speculate whether he is gay particularly and think its more a "try everything" phase)

I think they're abnormally close to each others families, family and lives to be friends for adults (BUT concede Nick is like that with lots of people and Harry is young and in a big city and clearly "collects" friends all over)

But mostly, I studied history for 15 years and like to think I know a little about source evaluation and research. Some of the tweets are relevant. Some of the newspapers use of words is deliberately tasting the water.

I realise I sound like a twat, but my interest is as much about the media obssession with celebs and their relationships, the utter homophobia of hollywood and the press; and the idea that gay and bisexual people choose to stay in the closet for purely business decisions meaning young people have less role models to follow and older people like my parents think that noone they like is gay on TV!

I am still in two minds about whether its a flirty friendship with business benefits that got out of a hand or a relationship with business benefits that is carefully managed just on the boil.

And now reflecting what I've written in the last 3 hours I am going to put my head in the oven as I have been sucked in once again to the madness. Apologies for cloggin up the thread with my ramblings

Lots, by your logic everything that are played in front of papps are real. So Harry was fucking Taylor when he was seen doing the "walks of shame" from her hotel in NY then. Good one. And I simply asked what is the difference between H/Ed or H/Louis and the H/N saga (must be something special who prove two people are having sex with each other) , not to speak about Louis.

In the last two months, seriously? He was out to lunch with Nick the day he arrived back in the UK in mid-January, he stayed over later that same week, he was over the night they were baking together and presumably stayed over, if you can take some of Nick's comments about a male friend staying over than that adds even more nights (even if Harry is only some of those mentions), there have been multiple days when he's been wearing Nick's clothes, Nick was up for pretty much 48 hours over the span of Harry's birthday partying, which included Harry staying over at his the first night and the two of them presumably staying at Nick's the second night (he mentioned the after party being there), and then since then Harry was out of town for 8 or 9 days in Yorkshire and only got back on Sunday. Since then they haven't been out in public, presumably since attention is ramping up around them so much, but Nick has again referenced a male friend being at his place which may or may not be Harry, judging on past mentions. I'm not saying that every mention is automatically Harry, but considering that that is the way he references Harry time and time again, and it has been proven to be Harry time and time again, I do think it's worth noting, especially when he specifies that the friend is male, since the vast vast majority of his close friends that frequently stay over are female.

Also, not true about Harry living with Louis til September 2012. I know there are various arguments about the exact dates, but Harry bought his own place in the summer and definitely was staying over at Nick's even more frequently then (no, I'm not going to go back and figure out dates for you, but it was definitely frequent, plus they were spending multiple days at a time together constantly, Harry was driving Nick to work, etc.) Nick has also been making references to "a friend" staying over, or staying with "a friend" that was proven to be Harry since as far back as that too.

by Anonymousreply 50302/19/2013

Sorry, I'm one of the most vehement "this is not a Louis" thread people here, but I cannot STAND when this crap happens.

Harry and Louis haven't been seen together outside of work events in months. Not so much as a casual lunch or a fan picture has been unearthed.

Your ship has sunk, and if you're not interested in NICK GRIMSHAW or his varied friends (which includes Harry to a LARGE degree), you need to leave this goddamn thread.

by Anonymousreply 50402/19/2013

JJ I rarely post here but I have found your posts interesting. I get totally bored by the thread sometimes as I am mostly interested in Nick and his entourage of celeb friends and am also hugely cynical about any press coverage and how news is is manipulated. I don't believe anything unless it comes directly from the mouths of he people involved and then realise that editing can twist things enormously.

Exactly, R503

by Anonymousreply 50602/19/2013

Love this bit JJ: 'I am still in two minds about whether its a flirty friendship with business benefits that got out of a hand or a relationship with business benefits that is carefully managed just on the boil.'

Sums up my opinion entirely!

It is certainly interesting and entertaining to watch!

by Anonymousreply 50702/19/2013

R502 Well you clearly missed my point but I don't think anyone is interested in this thread becoming some big argument so I'll leave it there. I assure you I didn't intend to "bring lies or hate" to the table.

RE the dinner tonight, seen some rumours on twitter about Harry attending. It's at a hotel, I'll try to find the links again.

by Anonymousreply 50802/19/2013

I'm starting to think a lot of people here are strange to say the least. Now I'm a Larry shipper. Please, I'm far from one, I want to know what make Harry/Nick relationship special, different from other type of relationship Harry is having (and I will let Louis outside, because everybody here will try to tell me they are no longer friends, they are enemies, they never are papped together OMG, their mothers was forced by management to tweett each other sweet things yesterday, somebody put a pistol to all Harrys family's temple to came to Louis select party etc), so I will use the Harry/Tom Atkin one (or maybe you will consider me a Hatkin sipper now!!!!)

by Anonymousreply 50902/19/2013

JJ, I agree with pretty much everything you've said.

by Anonymousreply 51002/19/2013

I can't really imagine him not attending...that would be suspicious in itself. Thanks, lots.

by Anonymousreply 51102/19/2013

Thanks R505

Two final points. Please learn to use google:

1) Harry lived with Louis in a aprtment in the same block as the others till Feb 2012. When he turned 18. It is unlikley he would be able to get a lease on his own. He bought a place in East London near Lou Teasdale. Autumn 2012 he bought a much bigger place nearish Nick in the borders of Golders Green/Hampstead I believe

2) Harry and Louis were spotted playing football with some friends a couple of weeks back. Yes they were filmed for documentary but they appeared to be the only 1D boys there.

Life is rarely about certainties or absolutes. I imagine the trueth lies somewhere in betweeen. And I understand the mainstream media play the games. But for people like Holy Moly, Perez Hilton etc to sell out too just pi**** me off.

by Anonymousreply 51202/19/2013

JJ, I'm not the Larry shipper (I wrote R503 about Harry and Louis not living together long before September 2012) BUT I follow One Direction and I know that there's room for confusion about exactly when Harry moved out, it's not as simple as the news stories. The flat was put up for sale in February but the boys did an interview in Australia in April 2012 where Harry discussed living with Louis and it was definitely still the current situation. I imagine they moved out when they got back from that tour (so more like April/May 2012). Which isn't really important, but it does show why there's rightfully some confusion.

by Anonymousreply 51302/19/2013

Well, Perez sold out a while back, I think and didn't Holy Moly have the whole beard joke with Union J? I don't know much about them, so I have no idea what else they say/write the rest of the time about Harry.

I do wish it was possible to avoid all this crap, but I can't blame Harry and Nick for this at the moment. I really don't know how free Harry is to be openly with Nick, if there is a relationship to be open about and I think there is. Nick by extension would not be able to do anything about this...yet.

by Anonymousreply 51402/19/2013

R514, Yeah Jamie East from Holy Moly made the joke with Union J about Harry having a beard. Larry shippers went crazy but I definitely think that was a reference to Harry and Nick.

by Anonymousreply 51502/19/2013

I agree, R515!

Lots, any idea when the dinner is taking place?

by Anonymousreply 51602/19/2013

I find East some thing of a prat and will say anything to be controversial. I don't believe he knows anything one way or another but will use current gossip to stir things up.

Doubt this is really relevant, don't know anything about the guy, but he's tweeted about H/N before, although idk if he ever labelled them "boyfriend"

by Anonymousreply 51902/19/2013

Scope here for an interesting discussion about press reporting and manipulation. Not really fodder for a gossip thread though.

by Anonymousreply 52002/19/2013

Well, that's two people talking about a boyfriend today. Thanks, R519.

by Anonymousreply 52102/19/2013

R509 I agree that it worthwhile to look at what makes Nick and Harry's friendship different than the ones Harry has with his other friends like Cal, Gabe, Tom, Louis, Ed etc. It seems like Harry spends a lot of his spare time with Nick, but of course that would be more publicized than the others for different reasons (some are not famous, others more low-key, like Ed, and Louis because of the rumours).

One example of what sets them apart is the tweets with info from industry insiders that are clearly not meant for public viewing (they seem unaware that people would use twitter search and think their conversations are just between them and their 100 or so followers).

by Anonymousreply 52202/19/2013

Fair point re: housing situation, thanks for correction :)

As to "freedom"Im so easily sucked in but need to respond lol! Of course he is free. He can pick up a phone or laptop anytime he wants and say - this is the reality.

He is lucky not to live in a country where people have freedom of speech and sexuality enshrined by law.

If he signed a contract then that was his choice. Contrary to popular belief it is in the record labels interests to be straight about the deal. He wanted this. Add to that that he subscribes to the Moss, Jagger world of Never Complain, Never Explain PR philosophy.

But I will say, if he is gay and he is staying quiet for his career but is out to all friends and family and aquaintances then that is sad for the millions of kids out there who's lives he could influence by raising the profile of successful gay/bi teens.

If he isn't, then bless him- he is just a very smart very gay friendly boy with an eclectic group of mates.

Now back to Grimshaw- anyone have any idea of who the slew of models he bedded were)

by Anonymousreply 52302/19/2013

First tweet about the dinner. No idea if Harry is there.

by Anonymousreply 52402/19/2013

You can fuck almost any model you want if you have the connections that Nick has. People will have sex for nothing, so why wouldn't they lower their standards for a little gain.

by Anonymousreply 52502/19/2013

R516 Sorry, no idea when it starts, am still searching twitter. It's probably already started, maybe even finished, as it's already 9:30 pm in London.

Regarding that tweet someone posted, if you look at his twitter page it seems very sketchy. He is posting mostly gossip but is tagging lots of things as #gay when it doesn't seem relevant, has awkward spelling and punctuation errors etc.

by Anonymousreply 52602/19/2013

Fair enough, JJ. He is free, haha! He may have signed a contract before he ever thought he'd be in this mess and getting out of it might be a daunting prospect, if he even wants to. So you're right of course, it is a choice, but I would not dare put myself in his shoes. I have NO IDEA what kind of pressure that would be...assuming of course there is something he would like to share, and again, I do believe that.

I agree that it would be great if he were able to be a role model, but again, it is not my place to judge.

Ooooh, he does, JJ? It all keeps coming back to Metro at the moment, haha.

by Anonymousreply 53202/19/2013

JJ, whoah really?? I didn't even know that. He's definitely tweeted about them multiple times before, I had no idea who he was though. I don't have links right now to the old tweets (though I'm pretty sure most were discussed here), but I took screen shots of some of them, and they included:

"Nick Grimshaw spotted with Harry 1D .. he must be so happy over split #gays #onedirection #radio1 #bbcradio #gossip #onedirection" on January 10th

"Harry 1D ditches Ms Swift .. free now to finally come out & live whgile your young #id #onedirection #gays #harrystyles"

and "Nick Grimshaw of R1 is planning to keep a low profile on his 1D Harry obsession" wise given the climate #id #gays #radio1 #radio"

(both the latter tweets were a few days before I think)

The "boyfriend" thing is definitely new in his tweets then, if he went along with the Swift stuff.

by Anonymousreply 53302/19/2013

Oh, btw, JJ, I did not mean to imply you were judging, or shouldn't, just that I'd rather not.

by Anonymousreply 53402/19/2013

R527 I assume you are referring to H? If so, then I assume he signed that contract when he was sixteen and even may have had to have someone sign it for him. Not sure of the legalities of contracts where sixteen year old's are concerned.

I could of course be totally wrong, it was just a thought.

by Anonymousreply 53502/19/2013

So the dinner definitely seems like more of a private thing then an event, if it's just Nick's annual thing he does with friends (which is also the impression I got when he brought it up on the radio).

I had not considered that, R535. Thanks for pointing it out.

Seems like the official pre-Brits dinner party is at Buddha Bar in Knightsbridge (NOT the club funky Buddha). I think it is just starting as they are RTing people saying they are on their way. No mention of Harry or Nick that I can see yet.

Their twitter is here:

Yeah, R536. That could potentially mean Harry being there without us finding out.

R538, thanks! So the party is from 7pm-1am, it says. Interesting that it does seem like an official pre-BRITS party, although the other girl was referencing it as Nick's annual dinner - maybe he just normally has the same-ish group at a table? I spy Pixie, her bf, and Alexa in the picture (and is that Example at the end?)

Maybe he books a room/section and then they move out into the main party (which is sponsered, so must be official)? If they go to the main party I imagine there'll be pap pics or ones taken by the restaurant itself.

by Anonymousreply 54502/19/2013

R527 - took no offence at all!

Think it's likely his parents would have co-signed. But either we think H is mature enough to be in a relationshio with a 28 year old or he isn't. And Also, they all re-signed (rather than resigned! Lol)- before Christmas.

Finally, I urge you all to follow that twitter account. The guy used to write blinds and gossip bullet points for the metro. Not sure if he still does. Reads like an aged desperado losing his looks and spouting vitriol at everyone younger and better looking. He is/was infamously inaccurate at the metro, or even better, weeks past the in saying stuff.

But he appears to be having a meltdown with his online bank and life in general.. Kids this is what happens when your media career goes wrong.

I'm glad, JJ. Of course, I think he is mature enough. I just have no clue about contract legalities, haha. It makes sense that he would have resigned at 18 though, you're right, so that argument can probably be ignored.

I thought you'd said he was accurate...oh well seems he's accurate enough this time given that he's only saying what so many others are, haha.
