But they are wearing matching print - just too much ;)

by Anonymousreply 302/19/2013

I don't think the shirt suits match, just compliment each other. Would be a bit weird to match unless it was a wedding?!

Just clearing throat and pretending I didn't come over all fan girlie in previous thread. Thanks for new thread OP. Mark Ronson was looking well in the pic with Nick.

It seems as though Cara isn't there so no cute coupley pics of the gorgeous girls tonight.

R5 Yeah, would have loved to have seen some C/R pictures!

Whats with examples arms? they are a completely different colour to his hands?!

by Anonymousreply 702/19/2013

R7 It is odd looking isn't it. I am assuming the hair on his arms is darkening them up somewhat and maybe deflecting the light a bit too or something.

by Anonymousreply 802/19/2013

H - I think it is just the way the camera flash is catching the hairs on his arms; they are not even the same colour as each other in the one of Nick kissing him! (Speaking of which someone has produced a manip of that, editing Example out, unfortunately his arms are still there, it is highly amusing).

by Anonymousreply 902/19/2013

I knew it wouldn't be long before somebody edited Example out of the picture!

Thanks for the new thread! I do feel a bit sorry for regular Dataloungers who clearly don't give a toss about Grimmy, but seeing as the threads are started by members I won't feel too bad :)

Wonder if we'll get any chat about this tomorrow morning? N seems to have reigned back the references to his real life dramatically so probably not too much. I did spot Finchy in the background of a pic though so could get something!

by Anonymousreply 1102/19/2013

oh I didn't see Fincham! I'll have to creep the pictures more than I am, very amused to come back from dinner to see all of you fangirling! I have such a big grin on my face too:)

I love that all these artists (Jessie Ware, Tom Odele etc) went to Nick's party and not the official one. Awesome that it's going to be an annual thing, it'll be nice to see in the years to come.

Just noticed that the Buddha bar tweeted Harry and asked if he was coming...made me giggle

by Anonymousreply 1302/19/2013

Louis really is a nasty piece of work, he sent a message to a fan calling her a loser because she tweeted something about Larry.

I really dislike him.

The pictures of Nick and Harry are lovely. Quite glad that Harry is distancing himself from the rest of the band.

by Anonymousreply 1902/19/2013

These photos are too much! Completely adorable, and the best we've seen of the two of them together :) It's so lovely to see how happy and relaxed they look, they're both beaming. The fact that they were sat beside each other and are in nearly EVERY photo together speaks volumes, I think. They were/are by each other's sides the whole night, it's very sweet to see.

I would love to see their photobooth pictures, like Henry's and the other group one.

Gosh, I love their friendship circle, everyone seems genuinely happy to be together and they always looks like they're having a ball together.

OR, instead of talking about Louis on this thread AGAIN, we can look at this picture of Harry arriving at Nick's party...with Nick's very distinctive (as it's the inverse of the pattern on Harry's shirt) suit in the corner.

As someone who doesn't talk about Louis here, I'm so tired of people making such a big deal about Louis being mentioned here. It is easy to skip a comment in a thread that you do not have any ownership of.

I'm going to make a comment about Louis that prolongs the discussion of Louis without contributing the picture.

by Anonymousreply 2802/20/2013

So someone, anyone, be kind enough and send the "loser" comment of this piece of shit called Louis! I'm really interested in this because the anon making the original comment about Louis wanted to highlight how noble and perfect and accomplished Nick is compared with the scumbag of Tomlinson.

by Anonymousreply 2902/20/2013

Did anyone see Louis flirting with that male interviewer in those gifs t'other day, lol! Brilliant.

I have not been here since the Harry's birthday threads, when C said she found out H/N were an item. That backed up my own views (also on Rita and Cara! Of course she took and left with her wife to the War Child gig and the press reported it was all about 'flirting with Harry' - fuck off OK! mag et al) and what C said was good enough for me.

It's great to see Harry and Nick obviously out and about together and enjoying their time. I think Harry brushes up very well and Nick can work suits like a goddesss. I sometimes wonder if these two shouldn't go into fashion design together! They seem to have that common thread (pun intended)...

by Anonymousreply 3002/20/2013

I'm pretty sure the person who brought up the "loser" message said Louis was a "piece of work", not a "piece of shit".

Thanks very much.

by Anonymousreply 3202/20/2013

I really like Harry and Nick together but is cristal clear they are platonic friends. No ounce of intimacy between them. If they were boyfriends we will see in their interaction because Harry is a very tactile person. And Grimmy cannot be more flirty with other men. Just look at the pictures from 2 days ago when he was riding very sugestively that guy in front of Groucho. And Harry is sleeping around, I doubt is Grimmy because there are many photos of him sporting bruises and love bites when in US or other places nowhere near Nick.

by Anonymousreply 3302/20/2013

Let's talk about the tweett of Harry from October whe he talks about couple tattoos, and what we saw next? Nick having couples tattoos with Harry. The birds, the ship/compass tattoos etc. Yes, they are in luuurve!!! Hello Louis!

by Anonymousreply 3402/20/2013

If anything I think more indicative of something going on that two people who are very very tactile with their friends have been quite careful to NOT be all over in each other in public pics.

Nick just rang his PR from Hackford and said that he snogged a popstar and it was caught of camera but said he couldn't say as he was in the office, and the PR said something along the lines of, "Do we know of this person? Have they been muted in the past?" He first guessed Frank Ocean mind you! hahahaha

Attempting to regain some semblance of debate. Call or Delete this am with Nick calling his publicist to say he'd snogged a popstar and got busted by paps. It sounded relatively genuine and he didnt sounds remotely surprised N had snogged someone (not H) - surely if they were in a committed relationship he'd be more surprised at the snogging someone else.

by Anonymousreply 4202/20/2013

I come here to read your thread for shits and giggle, but the 'piece of shit"comment really angered me. I like Grimmy and his friendship with Harry, plus the publicity bonus of the whole thing. But to say Grimmy is some kind of noble knight when all of us very well know how nasty and bitchy he is, while shitting all over Louis from thin air is just uncalled. Did you forgot his racial "blackfaced' party from 2 months ago? And for the record, Harry is fucking Louis, all the evidence is there.

by Anonymousreply 4302/20/2013

JJ: Don't think so. It's fairly well-known Grimmy kisses all of his friends. Also, i got the feeling that the publicist realized rigfht away he was on call or delete. The people he guessed on were not even remotley close to being real. Most of 'em weren't even in London.

by Anonymousreply 4402/20/2013

41, Eleanor is just like Taylor, publicity (Ö, look how cute they are, they are the best, just marry already" kind of thing). She isn't intimate with Louis, just like Harry isn't fuking Grimmy.

JJ- Call or Delete is pre recorded so there is always that. They can't cut stuff out.

Agree with Mimi, I don't think his Frank Ocean guess was remotely sincere, he definitely knew what was happening, I mean he's Nick's publicist, of course he's going to be more aware than most of Call or Delete. I do think Nick was probably poking fun or deliberately teasing by coming up with "snogged a popstar"

by Anonymousreply 4702/20/2013

R43 what are u talking about, Nick never called Louis a piece of shit.

by Anonymousreply 4802/20/2013

I am going to completely ignore the lunacy that is r43 (just came here to catch up with the lovely C) but all this snogging at parties and being busted, for gawd's sake, half of it's theatricals for show with Nick Grimshaw!

I would fully expect Harry and Nick (if in a committed partnership or an open one) to try and deflect and throw people off the scent. How does anyone know they don't have one another's blessing to mess about a bit because it actively takes the heat off them during these crazy times of speculation and being folllowed by paps?

Nobody knows the inner workings of any of these relationships. We're all sat here suffering from a dose of assumptions when we really know how their world operates. It might be very faithful (at present) but they might have to also get the press/people off their backs too. Or it might be more open.

Think how many made up stories any real partner of say, Harry, has to put up with about all his ficticious conquests. It's swings and roundabouts imo...

by Anonymousreply 4902/20/2013

Nick is trolling all the fandom with his supposed affair with Harry and there are some people naive enough to fall for this. Good publicity, he has a Tv show coming if I understand corectly. Meanwhile Harry is having his brains fucked by Louis daily.

Going back to the pictures from last night (to get the conversation back on topic) I will never get over how happy both Nick and Harry look when they're around eachother. And I'll also never get over how well harry just blends with all of Nicks friends.

Mimi and R47 - thanks for that I didn't pick up on his early awareness but am still half asleep.

R49 - fair points. Just sometimes find it hard that anyone could be that "planned" in their deflection etc but totally see your point.

Other sane posters - an interesting 12 hours!

The rest of you - you are absolutely bats**t but vaguely amusing to read for a couple of posts. Now toddle off back to tumblr and leave the adults to chat

by Anonymousreply 5402/20/2013

R49 - Nothing more sadly, as I haven't seen him since then, I may well see him at Easter though (his parents live near me) so if I do I will plainly question him further! N16 has heard from a photographer friend (actually it was slightly more complicated; people were labelled A,B,C and D) that they are a couple since then as well. (I think this was repeated in thread 5).

by Anonymousreply 5502/20/2013

R45, yeah it must really burn you Louis is still not man enough to take Harry out openly.

Which is what Nick Grimshaw does so well.

Not to mention Louis choosing to go to the sleazeball's party instead of Harry's- no matter what the sleazeball supposedly DM'd a fan (DMs are easy to fake, might I remind everyone) about Louis and Liam going to Harry's party before his. Paps were watching the Harry birthday bashes both nights, we would have gotten them leaving or entering EITHER of the parties.

by Anonymousreply 5702/20/2013

Louis and Harry, their couple tattoos, their flirting, the forbidden topic in the media today. But we have the shinning friendship of Gryles, they are in every paper lately, they are the ultimate soul mates, they are probably engaged by now but they don't have any sexual chemistry. Meanwhile Harry and Louis are flirting with each other like crazy, passing handjob, blowjob innuendos, Louis is sporting an erection after Harry whispers in his ear etc. If I was Grimmy and Harry will behave so open with one of his bandmate, I'd be worried.

And about Harry's birthday party, I don't remember anyone from his family being there. And please, don't came with the Gemma story, she wasn't there also.

by Anonymousreply 6402/20/2013

C, thanks for the update. I really wish we had somewhere to discuss this without it being derailed by Tumblr types who haven't hit maturity (or had a boyfriend) long enough to know one cannot make a relationship with someone one does not socialise with probably about 95% of the time.

I think Louis and Harry had puppylove to start with but it seems to me they've outgrown that, matured and moved off in different paths.

I'm just baffled by the more rabid Larry fans (and can only assume it's teen naivety and lack of understanding of adult males) that sit there desperate to want Harry to exist in some miserable, closeted bubble in which he is only allowed to see Louis, just so they can make animated gifs over it. Instead of wanting to see Harry happy and out there enjoying himself with Nick and friends, which he clearly OPTS to do voluntarily, instead of hanging out in toxic mist of depression/repression with the beloved Louis.

For me it's not about who's "best" together, who looks cuter together or who makes the bigger fucking heart-eyes (ffs!) at one-another, it's about people, possibly closeted people, being at least able to be semi-out or go out and enjoy themselves and spread their wings, make relationships outside of the band or their fans whiny, whingey expectations, and be as free as they can be, under difficult circumstances.

by Anonymousreply 6502/20/2013

And Harry leaving Ed house(or even staying with him) Tom Atkin house, or the fact that he lived with Louis for more than a year don't make you emotional?

by Anonymousreply 6602/20/2013

R59, how about get back to me when Saint Louis has the BOTTLE to a. be civil to fans b. not allow himself/his image/Twatter persona (yes you read right) to berate his friend and supposed bethrothed (because you guys thought Lary was married - fine, go bring us the public record) in the presses and bump his girlfriend up relentlessly (which must hurt you) c. takes Harry out openly and in a carefree way several nights on the trot to show he actively has time for Harry outside the odd game of football. Being on tour doesn't count because they are thrown together. Get back to me when they take a couples holiday off, etc.

That's the reality. End of.

by Anonymousreply 6902/20/2013

For r49, you talk about Harry and Grimmy being in a mature, real relationship, but Harry (when asked) refered to Nick like a good friend with whom he is having a laugh. And you see in their interactions that comitted partenership someone talked before? Nick himself called Harry a Z-celebrity on his list, but he is now claiming Harry as his one and only soul mate and is so manlyy, please let's be emotional together. Harry is 19 years old he isn't in realmature relationship with Grimmy, he likes to have fun (manly with his bandmate Louis).

LG, the last time I suggested the same you threw a dickie fit!]

[quote]An on topic aside. n said this morning he'd been piling on the pounds. But last nights pics seem to make him look as good as I've seen him.

I think it's possibly in areas we don't see. There were some beach pics of him from some time ago and his belly was god awful. I think he might have toned up since but it's probably mild flab with Grimmy in regions that fool the cameras. Overall he still comes across as slght and slim.

I don't think drink helps. Even wine. It all goes to the stomach on blokes and the hips and boobs on women. And he does seem to be a wine drinker. His skin looks pretty good and dropping the quiff on and off has made him look younger.

He really works suits, I've noticed. He's got a sort of charm that's a bit old school for stylish clothes and perhaps his overall look helps. He's quirky so mix and match from across different fashions styles work well for Grimmy I've thought.

Re: where/when the hell is he 'having fun with Louis' anywhere outside of being in front of a camera for band promo/touring - and in your head?

I don't operate Harry, Nick, or anoyone else. What I don't understand is your insistence Harry is not only creeping around in his free time with Louis when he clearly mostly (at least) is NOT but that he HAS to be, that he has no choices outside of your want of Louis. That is your fantasy, and very likely not Harry's or Louis' by now, if it ever was.

You just won't allow them choices or friends or potential partners outside of your Larry world.

For 74, yes he is, because the only things Gryles shippers have to sustain their teory is how much time Harry and Nick ar spending together, while Harry and Louis are never together outside their work. But you conveniently forget the swedish interview from November when Harry declared that when he wants to go outside without being spotted he can do without problem. Don't forget he flayed to US few times and nobody knew about this, or the two days disapparition 29-31 December last year.

That Grimmy is trolling the fandom with misleaded photos? That he continuously is making innuendos and speaking about Grimmy evenif he is known for his private romantic life?

R81, a Google group might be easier.

I wouldn't want to to be cliquey, just somewhee to discuss Breakfast Show, Nick and related without having to argue over Larry with these insufferable little tards demanding proof for something in their faces and giving nothing in return.

I apologise for arguing with them but it's been awhile and they just burn my fucking biscuits in light of so much Harry and Grimmy of late.

On a related note, I am sure it must have got picked up on but did anyone catch the Twitter thread about the girls seeing H/N in Nandos. Didn't say when but there was talk of an injunction as well. As I say I'm a tad out of date and have not kept up to the threads lately.

R71 - yup he works a suit well I think. And it sounded like last night was a success. He wasn't even the last to leave which is pretty impressive.

Not massively keen on H 's Burberry patterns and buttons to the neck but to each their own. Pixie I thought looked excellent last night too.

In the vain hopes of some peace- attention all you Louis and harry fans - this is not a Gryles thread. This is a gay gossip site with a thread where we like to discuss Nick G and his mates. H is incidental and only mentioned because he happens to be in lots of publicity, pap and fan shots with Nick. Honestly we don't think anything is going on and are just having some fun. I mean, be serious; why on earth would the worlds current A+++ boybander want to get physical with a guy who is only 1) host of GBs flagship radio show 2) one Of GQs Best Dressed and fashion icon 3) friends with some of the best selling artists in the world 4) member of Londons most exclusive private members bar 5) successful Awards show presenter and 6) has the freedom to roam London comfortable his sexuality isn't a secret.

by Anonymousreply 9002/20/2013

JJ, it's good to see them working suits. Harry makes me laugh because he looks like he should be in some period drama with a shotgun under his arm and an upper crust deestalker hat on. But he looks good. Makes him look a bit older.

They won't get much time to see one another once the tour kicks off (and madness begins again, oh...yay...oh no) so it looks as if they're really making the most while they can, which is great. I also liked how Pixie looked, she suits short hair.

It'd be fun to see if Harry and Nick move into any new projects together in future since they appear to have very similar interests. His shot at DJing was interesting but I think they could be quite the force on the scene if they turned their heads to something unique, in a true business sense. Hmmm...

R89 we have discussed what exactly injunctions can and can't do (contrary to the beliefs of certain people who cry PHOTOBAN~ or INJUNCTION to explain the lack of interaction of their "ship") ad nauseum on this thread, which you would know if you'd been around for more than spreading your knee-jerk reaction to last night's photos into places it's not wanted.

Things injunctions are: highly specific gagging orders on certain highly specific subjects being talked about in the press. Things they are not: anything else.

You can absolutely just do one. You don't even understand injunctions and are just hopping from one fangirl-ism to the next, trying to make something stick. It won't.

And another thing: nobody cares about your squeaks of protest. It's a Grimmy thread, stop using it as a Larry/Louis shrine and take that somewhere else! I'm gonna F and F you if you keep going off topic and forcing the conversation onto Louis. It's not fair, that's not what the thread is about.

Err, no.

For the person that asked. I'll find the Twitter thread about Nandos/injunction. Pay attention to the hashtags. It will clearly be of no use or interest to the Larry fangirl here so I expect she won't be sticking around.

JJ this wasn't a innocent Grimmy thred, never. People was interested in Harry and Nick posible hook-up, and were determined to prove the only person Grimmy is having sex with is Harry and nobody else, because you know, everything about them together scream sex-alert! People,study some body language, don't look at words, at Grimmy's very public innuendos (he will never do that to a boyfriend in public, he is too gentleman for this), it is banter between friends(Like the gay jokes Harry made with Ed Sheeran in Ed's tour diary, and nobody believe these two are fucking).

Here is the Twitter thread regarding a discussion about Nick and Harry/super injunction/Nandos from Feb 15, which could be remembered from October last year or any time really, because it doesn't state explicity when.

There's also a nice aside from a male and then the inevitable el thicko gatecrash from a Larry fanatic (sounding suspiciously like someone here).

As ever, take with a pinch of salt, keep an open mind but here it is. It's nice too:

Love this pic of Harry and Nick from the party.

Just going back to the clothing. Is Harry wearing a matching tie or is it part of the hang of the shirt? Because it almost looks like an inclusive tie and makes him look really smart.

by Anonymousreply 10702/20/2013

Nick makes very public innuendos about his relationship with Harry? LOL okay, I'll take this one down.

First of all, I'd like to know what Breakfast Show YOU'RE listening to or what interviews and articles YOU'RE reading because since around October, Nick's been very hesitant to mention Harry by name on his show at all. We get stories about his "friend" and only people who listen EVERY DAY, cross reference his tweets and the tweets of his coworkers (like Chris Stark) or tweets about sightings of H/N (like the Yo Sushi! lunch) would automatically assume those are about Harry.

Aside from those, Harry's only ever brought up by Matt Fincham, and usually via the Showbot feature. (One exception to this is when Nick surprised Matt with a call to Harry at like, 8 AM.)

Even on this morning's show, when discussing the party, FINCHY said "Harry Styles was there" and Nick said "Yeah, Harry Styles was there, (other celebrity) came," but he didn't mention Harry of his own volition.

When he's asked about Harry in interviews, he answers in one of three ways:

He completely shuts down like he did in the Fabulous interview

He reacts like he did in the recent Sugarscape video where he's visibly annoyed and gives very short answers until the subject changes.

OR he makes jokes like "I'll cry every day he's away," obviously over-the-top comments that will sound RIDICULOUS when printed. (Which they did.)

You're confusing ACTUAL Nick Grimshaw with the things tinhatters READ into Nick's comments.

Those comments read very differently to people outside of the fandom, people who don't frequent gossip sites like this, get their jollies from ~analyzing every piece of material about Harry Styles, 1D, or Nick Grimshaw, and people who listen to the radio or read gossip rags casually.

No worries r106. Another pic from the party I love is this one with Example, and I love Example.

Does anyone recall the comment about 'we all like men here' being made last year when Harry did karaoke with Example and Nick in the studio? It always struck me that everyone totally glossed over the fact Example was there too, even though that comment only exploded around Harry. Nice picture anyway:

Shipping is irrelevant because this is real life. In real life what matters is this: when two people spend time together and are clearly happy in each others company other people will notice. And want to show appreciation towards that. That is all. More on topic, there were SO many stylish people there last night. And from what Nick and Finchy and Coxy all were saying on the show this morning, everyone had a lovely time. Which is really all that should matter.

R108 you make your point beautifully, but you'll never get through to (sadly) teenage girls who can only see the 'beauty' of Louis and Harry in some chaste, doomed relationship that suits their font themes and x-rated shipping fantasies.

The fact someone is on here, constantly referring to 'Gryles' and 'ships' just proves this thread has been infiltrated by Tumblr cranks again.

To r110, thanks yes I think it is a onesie (awful term, lol!). It'd be cool if Nick and Harry ever did do something separate ortogether fashion-wise like a men's range. I dunno, I just think they're creative and the high-end fashion interest is there. They're always around those shows as well.

It is really odd that they would crop Nick out of photos from his own dinner/arriving or leaving that dinner.

by Anonymousreply 12102/20/2013

R118, I know. I'm just protective of Nick and very adverse to this idea that his entire career hinges on his attachment to Harry Styles, like he hasn't worked his (fine) hindquarters off to get where he is.

I'm exhausted by the notion that every single thing Nick has done with or regarding Harry has been a massive publicity scheme.

I legitimately cannot stand when these children come into this thread and start saying crap like they've been spewing ever since the pictures of Nick and Harry in coordinating clothes at Nick's massive dinner party sitting next to each other and shmoozing with guests together (like a couple) started cropping up.

Mostly it makes me sad for the actual people involved in this. Nick, whose friendship with Harry is "weird" because of his age and sexuality. Harry, who clearly CHOOSES to spend time with Nick and gets to see people's reaction to that. Not to mention Louis, who has to constantly protect his girlfriend from the shit his "fans" send her way.

by Anonymousreply 12202/20/2013

R114 et al - Just because someone said I was Harrick on the other thread (maybe that was you) doesn't mean I am. I actually really like her/his account, and visit it, but I'm 29, for god's sake, way past Tumblr.

Now plainly you are very threatened by the recent photographs of Nick and Harry, and realise that your dream of Harry and Louis publicly admitted their love for each other is just not going to happen, probably because it is not actually true, but don't think for one moment that posting rabid views on an adult gay forum thread is going to make any difference to how they live their lives or how we form our opinions.

Of course you have the option of continuing to post here but you really will just be ignored or insulted, and to be fair, most of us have been quite gentle in those insults so far, they will get worse, after all we know words that would quite frankly make Urban Dictionary blush.

R126 there are fifteen 600 comment threads dedicated to this relationship, and 6 600 comment threads dedicated to Nick Grimshaw, as well as the 100+ on this 7th thread already.

The varied conclusions (and they are varied- everything from people who believe they're in a committed relationship to a certain poster who thinks Harry's been hiding a relationship with Caroline Flack for a year and some change) we've reached on this thread are born of THOSE. I'm not going to summarize them for you because you don't actually CARE, you're just mad that Harry spends time with boys who aren't Louis.

by Anonymousreply 12902/20/2013

Why does everything rest on this so-called "sexual tension"? I don't see sexual tension between, say, Victoria and David Beckham in photos, but I don't doubt they are together (although I'm sure there are some that do ...). Same goes for, say, my best friend and their boyfriend. Most relationships don't remain static in a haze of tension - which is usually sexual attraction during the period of first meeting/dating - because they get used to each other. They don't see each other as sexual objects 24/7. They are used to each other's bodies and language and mannerisms, which turns into being comfortable with each other. Easy, relaxed body language - which is also to say of friends, I should point out - is a far better determiner of a pair's closeness, if they have known each other as long as say, N and H or H and L.

I'd actually find it very odd if two people who had known each other for around two years exhibited any kind of tension, because it wouldn't be entirely healthy.

I'm not saying this in favour of either pairing, just that this mythical constant sexual tension is both non-existant and, if it wasn't, would not indicate to me a close, loving or particularly healthy relationship. Occasional tension yes, but that is more likely in private moments or due to a reaction to something. Not just the presence of the other person.

As for the tension rubbish- I will repeat,1) absolutely no way savvy media types will give the game away when sober and aware of press 2) there is usually a marked lack of tension bettween people who acutally are having a physical relationship and have been together more than 3 months. DOesn't mean they are together, but absolutely doesn't mean they arent

by Anonymousreply 13402/20/2013

JJ - I wrote a long post that got swallowed basically reiterating what you say at point 2! I'd find it stranger if two people who had known each other for around two years exhibited prolonged tension between each other. People become comfortable around each other and know each other better as people, rather than as a potential fuck, to put it bluntly. Relaxed body language and ease is a far better indication of closeness, platonic or otherwise.

The house he was leaving was Dave Gardiner's, I think? Cara left earlier in the night, no mention of when Rita left. Don't know who else was there, maybe Jamie Hince and James Brown (lol!) from the photos in the cabs earlier.

by Anonymousreply 14002/20/2013

Okay, please bear with me, but one thought keeps recurring to me and that is Harry's extraordinary social rise in the last 12 months.

I'm trying to think of anyone in the past who has been this effective so quickly.

The Primrose Hill set are notoriously difficult to get close to and yet he appears to be slipping in with ease .... at 19....

And thats in addition to all the other groups he is reaching into. Really its quite extraordinary.

ITs taken years for N and co to reach the level of fame and notoriety they are at (possibly with the exception of Pixie due to family conncetions)

Nick has connections with all those people, Nick is the one who first brought Harry to any kind of Fashion Week event (although he probably befriended Harold Tillman through some other connection since Nick was saying it was weird they were friends), and Nick was obviously his in for the Primose Hill Gang. I know people go on about Harry brought so much publicity to Nick's show but in my opinion the connections that he's made through Nick are a lot more meaningful than Nick getting some extra One Direction fan listeners.

Was Nick the first to take him to a fashion show? I thought it was with James Cordon to Aquascutum (lucky bastard)? Which is where he's pictured with Harold Tillman.

Also Nick could like him as much as he likes; he may have introduced Harry to the PH set, but Harry must have crazy good social skills, or they wouldn't have time for him. Same goes for many of the people outside of Nick that he's befriended. I find it really interesting, myself, how he manages to settle himself into these social (and familial, in the Teasdales' case) settings. I'd be interested to meet him just to see what his manner is like and how he socialises exactly.

Look at his Philosophy night out - pictures with a Hilary Clinton ex-advisor and Jemima Khan; or his relationship with the filmakers (I forget thier names)

I can only assume his "personal presence" (psychology chat for charisma) is immense.

I am willing to bet he'll be babysitting the Beckhams and having a kickabout with David whilst talking fashion with Victoria before the Summer, the face of a fashion label before 2014 and Christ only knows what else...

Well I've always said I thought Harry was far more assertive and ambitious than he's perhaps seen, which would partly explain his meteoric social rise.

"Mark my words - Nick and Harry are more than friends, I heard that from one of their hangers-on!!"

"Poor Harry seems so smitten with him. I hope Nick doesn't end up making a fool of him because I have no doubt these 2 are together. I don't care how many fake PR relationships he's set up on.."

Re-listened to a clip of nick calling his publicist and noticed something that struck me earlier, but normally when they do Call or Delete they use a radio one phone or an anonymous phone don't they? Cause nick or the guest always has to say who it is or how they might not pick up an unknown number, they don't use their own phones, but the assistant who picked up and put him through knew who it was (called him Nick) without him saying anything. Could have recognized the voice in the few words he said i suppose but still interesting maybe.

Although talking of Harry's getting into Nick's set; have we ever seen him with Henry Holland, apart from the last night show? I don't know if it's just projecting, but I get this weird feeling Henry's not as keen. I don't know how I would know, though, other than that one time I've never seen them together and Henry's never mentioned him anywhere that I can think right now?

I'm only mentioning because Henry's one of Nick's best and oldest friends, by all accounts.

Daily Mail readers (hopefully) aren't Nick or Harry's target demographic and I'd hope neither care about the trollish and ignorant comments posted. Observations such as "weird" and "pa*do" are only more insulting, embarrassing and ignorant in the current climate. Only last week there was the scandal with the guy from Corrie and people think it's appropriate to throw these words around? For a nation apparently so obsessed with slamming down on this kind of crime, especially a certain sect (see also the hypocritical and sexist Sun), some people are far too free and easy making light of a very serious issue.

Hmm I don't get the feeling harry and henry would hang out withou nick, but he seemed nice enough towards harry on nick's last late time show? Very cute actually, they all seemed sort of doting on him, like they were letting him in on all this stuff about nick

by Anonymousreply 17502/20/2013

Henry is genuinely a very busy guy, I rarely see him out with Pixie, Gellz etc. Even Nick has said on the show that Henry rips into him when he rings him saying "i'm in work, as i have a normal job"

by Anonymousreply 17602/20/2013

Popping back in now the discussion seems to have calmed back down! I agree with R177 - I just don't think Henry has time, plus he's happily settled in a long term relationship, which does make one stop going out and partying quite as much.

Thanks to whomever also posted how many threads worth of this chat we've got through - wow, we could power our own forum! Who's looking forward to the Brits tonight? I think the chances of 1D winning are slim to none as it's an industry prize, not public vote. Hopefully that means they'll get even more smashed than last time and provide some entertainment. I can remember them from last year, before I really paid any attention to them - my friends and I found H shouting out Radio 1 over Capital etc. hilarious!

by Anonymousreply 17702/20/2013

I am very much looking forward to the Brits N16! Especially because the tables have so much booze and the celebs dont mind getting hammered and it makes great television. There seems to be a different drama every year.

I've never watched them before, but that sure sounds like fun!

by Anonymousreply 17902/20/2013

Unfortunately I am going to miss the Brits as I am out tonight. But yes I can remember H thanking R1 instead of Capital which was hilarious and if my memory serves me correctly resulted in 1D being banned from Capital's playlist which if true is even more hilarious. I agree, I cannot see 1D winning this year as it's voted for my industry.

On another note, thank heavens this thread has now died down again. Although the rants from fan-girl teens can be quite amusing as long as there are kept at a minimal.

As someone else said, I to believe N and H have tried to cram as much socialising together as possible in before H goes off on tour. I for one will miss the outings and the papped photos.

Talking of paparazzi, honestly, did they really camp out all night just to pap Cara, H and co leaving that house? I shouldn't laugh but Cara's little fall on the stairs reminds me of me at that age. Oh the memories.

Really thinking 1D might stand a chance tonight to be honest - not for Best Group but I've been thinking they might get Interational Success? That would be suited at least, and it's a smaller category anyway. Paloma made the comment about not thinking she's going to win cause she wasn't allowed to bring a guest and so far I know at least Harry's sister, Harry's mum, Louis's mum and Louis's girlfriend are all attending.

by Anonymousreply 18402/20/2013

R185 Global Success? Yeah - its interesting that its never been phrased like that before.

It used to be international breakthrough.

All three have been huge in US but I have a sneaky suspicion it might be the one award the panel could give 1D and still retain credibility as it is no reflection on their music, simply on their success and could take into account Tour and World Tour pre-sale?

Adele is a bigger artist in US in sales but hasnt toured and Mumford has predominantly dominated US only I think

by Anonymousreply 18502/20/2013

I'm not one to ever judge someone's behaviour as being indication of anything. (For example, even though Louis is camper than anything I would never have pegged him for gay etc. etc.) However, I think it's nice to see that when H is out and about on his own and not being styled, he has quite a 'flamboyant' dress sense and isn't afraid of print/colour/matchy matchy clothes! I'm sure this is N, Henry, Mark Ronson and others' influence. His other style is of course ripped skinny jeans and band tee shirts - ie mini Tom Atkin.

I just like that he wears non laddy clothes I suppose haha

I wonder if this is right?

It wouldn't be the first time Harry's nodded at Nick when on stage - my friend is in marketing and to go to 1D's i-tunes gig a while back and was stood/sat? right by where Nick was presenting from. She knew who Grim was but is no follower nor listens to his radio shows, and I got a text half way through asking me 'does Nick Grimshaw happen to know Harry Styles?' as Harry was constantly looking up to him, pulling faces at him, gesturing and threw the fake snowballs at him. My friend had no idea they were friends and was baffled by this behaviour ha. She said Nick grinned like 'an idiot' the whole way through.

I got told this story before I really became interested in the pair, and its what sparked my interest as well. Who knew what I was getting into following these two!

It seems as if Harry and Nick are being as free as they are able to be. Bit by bit maybe? That's my gut feel. Part of me knows there'll be the inevitable press encore of fantasy women in the wake of this. Part of me knows there'll be the inevitable womanising 'damage control', though someone rightly said there IS no 'damage' to control.

Part of me (the more positive part) really wonders now why the hell bother hiding it? They seem all but a very sweet couple. Why not just be fucking honest, forget possible injunctions and sneering, just have at it. Run it up the flagpole and see who salutes.

But I don't run their operations and PR. Sadly.

Any idea who this brunette is? She is in a few pictures with Harry and looks like she went back to Nick's flat with Jamie and Harry. And will likely be reported as Harry's next fling in the rags today.

Storing clothes at someone's house is a big step in a relationship and though it's probably a realistic measure they should take since friends or more their sleepovers have been starting rumors but they might not be ready for that conversation. Harry seems to have known he was going into the radio (Nick confirmed he had at least one guest for sure ahead of time and Harry said he had to be up at 5) so the smart thing to do would have left extra clothes at Nick's whether or not they're together.

And I'm sure they were both too drunk to get it up anyway so I'm sure they just continued the party till they had to leave for the show.

R302 - Perhaps though given that they knew they were photographed arriving early in the morning it was thought better not to change. After all Nick would have a lot of plain T shirts etc which wouldn't have been recognizable if he had wanted to.

R305 - Yes, Kate Hudson referred to having wide set eyes like Harry, so it would appear likely that Harry was with them at that point.

320 - I'm beginning to run out of reasons they couldn't be together. And I've been a big skeptic. They are always together at times a couple would be. Birthdays, Christmas, big events etc. There was no reason for Harry to stay with Nick last night or be on the radio. It was a big night, Harry could have been off networking or go home with the other boys. It's clear they have sleep overs, they keep letting slip. They may be best friends, I think they really are, but they are very attached. The radio this morning was full of suggestive comments, Nick said he saw Harry everyday, confirmed Harry was at Nicks at Christmas, said he found him attractive ... I could go on....

R320 I have thought they were a couple since Christmas. And nothing they have done in the last two months has dissuaded me. I think they are trying to cram in as much time together before H goes off on tour.

I never heard all of the breakfast show but from what I did hear I'd say they were a couple. The last set of pictures I have seen of both N and H in the taxi just shouts "We don't care" to me. I could be wrong and it could be just the fact that they were both still hammered from the night before but I don't think so.

It will be interesting to see H's PR's next move. Will they hook him up with some new female or just leave things in the hope that while he is away things die down. I'm hoping it's the latter because the press stories are getting to the ridiculous stage now.

On another note, it was interesting what Nick said during the handover with Sara Cox about going to 1D's arena show on Saturday. He asked if he could come along with her. Think it was his way of letting people know he would be there. (Could be tin-hatting on my part)just a thought though.

R323 I thought it sounded like he had a free pass to go to any of the 1D dates he wanted.That and the way Niall talked about him p-reviously (though given the job he doews I would imagine thats true of most gigs anyway)

Cant imagine he'd miss the first though and probably keen to have freinds of his own to go with.

It is still plausible we have seen nothing that says they couldnt just be super close best friends with boundary issues and a possible unrequited crush.

However I think its a relationship for myself now. Pretty sure H and N arent into labels etc but if they were I suspect lover/partner/boyfriend would be one of them.

Also don't like the insinuation that he wasn't doing his job properly. Sure it was more chatty chatty than usual, longer links. And sure he wasn't exactly sober. But BBCR1 didn't seem to care, the producer and the rest of the team were equally as drunk or hungover as Nick and his guest.

I listened back and enjoyed the show for sure (as well as their friendship/relationship/fbuddyship/ whateverthehell) but I'm gonna be honest they both really do themselves no favours. The press pretty much have free reign now I guess all they needed was an 'in'. I wonder if the other members get annoyed at Nick's involvement (attention grabbing) mostly resulting in negative headlines for Harry.. as it does reflect on the rest of the group in the end too. Louis makes it quite obvious he does.. I guess I just expected Nick to be more media savvy

R335 and he pretty much hand fed them one..

by Anonymousreply 33902/21/2013

Must be hard for Nick, he does love the attention yes (not that it's a bad thing) but imagine being in a relationship with one of the most lusted over boys in the world right now, you'd want to scream it from the rooftops! People can speculate about what they're doing, but at the end of the day it could just be all very innocent and they're just VERY good friends. (However I find this quite unlikely)

by Anonymousreply 34002/21/2013

R339 - I wonder if this is actually what they want though; they really have no need to actually say anything, but if it is implicitly known then it will be much easier for Harry to spend time with Nick on tour breaks, rather than having to hide the time they are spending together.

by Anonymousreply 34102/21/2013

Maybe, C. I really do hope they get to spend as much time together as possible...openly if they want to!

by Anonymousreply 34202/21/2013

I'm wondering the same thing, c. I mean with the amount of press coverage they're getting in the UK and the innuendo etc, it almost doesn't matter at this point. It would be a big deal in terms of 1D/globally/etc, but Nick isn't even know outside of the UK and their relationship definitely isn't getting talked about in US media and so on. So they can basically do whatever they want as long as they're not actually snogging in public and it won't make a difference.

by Anonymousreply 34302/21/2013

What exactly does it reflect on the group? Because Harry and Nick being a bit drunk early morning isn't really an issue (the majority of us have turned up to work worse for wear or just sobering up - I know I have); and it won't be for a fair amount of listeners. We've seen Harry and Zayn out drinking before; Louis clubbing; Liam at Funky Buddha; Niall outside a pub smoking. Their fans are under no illusions that they are sweet, straight edge boys; it's part of their appeal.

So what you're saying is reflecting badly, in my opinion, is the press coverage of their relationship or Nick himself and Harry by association. I doubt Nick asks the DM to call him weird, or creepy, or to imply it's not right; nor does he ask the commentors to reiterate that. This is all outside perception influenced by a borderline homophobic media.

I don't really see what right Louis (or any of the others) has to have a problem with Harry having a good friend who is older and therefore inciting this borderline homophobic reaction. He had no problem courting the same speculation with far more public innuendo and baiting with Harry himself. Quite rightly, he wanted to stop it when everything got too heavy and the fans reacted badly and disrepectfully. However, I don't see how it's any of his business to tell Harry not to act a certain way with his friends - and especially not with his boyfriend/partner/whatever, if that's the case. It's the media who create a bad vibe, not the relationship itself, and Harry's not asking for bad headlines. Being happy around someone shouldn't get them in the first place.

I doubt Louis really thinks N and H and all the publicity reflects badly on them, if anything the other boys sometimes seem quite relieved H gets most of the attention - let's be honest if any of the others really wanted to court attention and press it wouldn't be difficult for them to papped out and about like H is.

Sorry, N16, I should have been clear that I don't personally think that's the case with any of the group (and agree with what you say entirely about their being out of the press by choice) - I was more picking at the implication from fans/spectators who might have that view.

Despite the DM attitude being pretty gross I'm surprised again by how many of the comments are people saying it's obvious there's something going on. A few throwing out the "creepy" line as always (ugh) but the majority of the ones about H/N seem to be of the attitude "everyone knows why don't they come out it's not a big deal"

by Anonymousreply 35302/21/2013

I dont see why the rest of the band would be annoyed by Nick's presense? Everyone near the boys gets more attention than needed; their non famous girlfriends have over a million followers on twitter and are worshipped by certain fans,Ed Sheeran became mostly known(at least outside the UK)due to his 1D association/friendship with Harry and frankly i dont think H/N are overexposed,we get photos of them when they attend public events like it happens with any celebrities,it's not like the paps are documenting each of their movements,more like they are following Harry around and whoever he happens to be with gets papped too.

I "blame" today's innuendo on the fact that they were tired,hangover and probably havent slept at all,the previous times they were super careful as to what info they let slip out there.

I agree with JJ,it might as well be a very close flirty friendship,but personally i see them as a couple,i've changed my mind too many times but i think it's pretty clear now that what they have isnt just platonic.

Well February has certainly been an eventful month! I have always seen N & H as a mix of friendship & business with a dash of friends-with-benefits, but now even *I* am starting to wonder. They definitely seem more couple-y as of late, not just because of the time spent together because that means nothing to me... it's they way they are interacting with each other that has me now thinking that they might indeed be a couple.

What puzzles me is, if they are truly in a romantic relationship, how "in your face" they are being about it. Harry is the star of 1D so whether he likes it or not, he still needs to appear available to his young female fan base. Perhaps Harry is at the point where he just doesn't care anymore... he knows he is the star of 1D and that their handlers will clean up any messes he makes...because they have to, at least until the tour ends. And yes, Harry and Nick's actions *could* affect all of 1D, especially if it turns into some sort of scandal. What are your thoughts on all of this?

R356/360 the tweeter lives in NZ, has 2 followers and doesnt seem to be aware that Nick is out..? The tweets from actual industry people are probably the most interesting part of this thread though

Seems like people 'in-the-know' who know are much less careful about sharing it recently so I wonder if H & N are planning to go public.. or if everything's going to awkwardly backtrack like after all the clothes-sharing press? After today (and what the press already know and are sitting on) I think just letting it coast might be starting to diminish as an option so it really could go either way..

Absolutely loving all this, can't believe I listened to the whole show today, never done that before and then spent the day checking twitter and DL for more photos!

by Anonymousreply 36902/21/2013

I really don't know what their minders/producers are thinking right now because they must have known how people are going to talk about this. In some ways I feel like they just let Harry have this last hurrah before going on tour with the idea that it will all die down then and they'll pump another girl in down the line if rumours persist.

I do see that element of "don't care what people say" about them, but at the same time they cannot possibly want to be outed. They would be HOUNDED for months, stalked by paps, press would be insane, not to mention backlash for both 1D and BBC. I know they're going for open secret, but at the same time I'm so skeptical they would be THIS open. Then again, could just be carelessness following the Brits and an element of giddiness for everyone.

On another note, did anyone else think Harry sounded phenomenal singing last night? I know he's been a bit dodgy on live vocals before (though some could be attributed to his changing voice with puberty) but he really hit those notes last night; I was really impressed.

by Anonymousreply 37002/21/2013

Agree about them being hounded, lots, I think that's already evident in the pics we got of them at nick's - the facts that paps were camping right outside his house and on that balcony getting shots of them going into to the house. They're definitely a hot item right now and I think a lot of paps and publications are probably desperate to get something more concrete. That being said, I don't know if they would be hounded more or less if they were out - right now everyone wants to get the story and is tracking them every second but if it was out there and no longer secret there wouldn't be quite that sentiment, no?

by Anonymousreply 37102/21/2013

I think Harry and Grimmy will be outed only if they are caught snogging in public, because they did everything else (Christmas, birthdays, sleepovers, parties etc); the fans think they are just very good friends, and the papers make innuendos but don't have the right to out anyone.

by Anonymousreply 37302/21/2013

I go back and forth on whether or not they are a couple but if they are I don't think they will ever, ever be open about it. No way. BOTH their careers combined with Grimmy's utter reluctance to discuss his personal life. I think most of you on this thread are down to earth and sensible but expecting them to ever come out about this is dreaming imo.

Maybe a long time after the 1D bubble has burst and no one cares anymore it'll be hinted at. I'm talking years down the line.

It is interesting though how brazen they are being lately. Especially after they went through a phase a few months ago of being so covert about even hanging out together. There is a "just don't care anymore" vibe about them which is very nice to see.

Oh and I love Grimmy for doing the breakfast show he did today. Felt like being back in the 90s.

by Anonymousreply 37402/21/2013

Pringles, totally agree with you. I think we underestimate how big a deal it would be for Harry to come out while 1D is still at the top of their game, let alone to be in an out and proud relationship with a 28 year old BBCR1 DJ and host of the biggest radio show in the country. It would set a whole new precedent, and R372, yes, I agree the paps might have that mindset right now but if h/n came out as a couple they would also know how hungry the public would be for more pics. Everyone would be fascinated/confused by them (in some cases) and I think they would continue/increasing the stalking.

As well, we have discussed many times how ambitious both Harry and Nick are: I just can't see them willing to jepardize their ambitions, especially right now when they're both experiencing/getting to the best parts of their careers.

I think they'll just continue with doing what they want, be spotted at big events but being more on the DL outside of these and their PR relying on people thinking its a joke/too unbelievable to be true. My prediction is we'll never get a confirmation from them, but I would LOVE to be proved wrong-and in fact hope I am.

by Anonymousreply 37502/21/2013

The only thing that matters to me is that they can keep doing whatever it is that they're doing. I'd rather have them not confirm anything or have H not "out" if it meant they could keep seeing each other and enjoying each other's company like they're doing. Because no matter what anyone thinks of their relationship status it's obvious to anyone that they're happy when they're around each other.

by Anonymousreply 37702/21/2013

Hugely doubt they will ever come out as a couple, as there will never be a need or benefit without a smoking gun pic.

This is Max Clifford school of thought on coming out and prevalent. There is small chance post 1d Harry could do a Bowie and embrace being bi but the reveal of a relationship can only diminish fan base.

Uncertainty rules in PR sexual politics

by Anonymousreply 37802/21/2013

I agree Pringle, I think if they are together we're unlikely to find out for a long time, if ever. At present, maintaining Grimmy and the BBC's reputation, along with Harry's image being critical for 1D's success and his duty to the group should limit any explicit revelations.

On top of that, I doubt either has any desire to invite more scrutiny into their lives, as I've said before.

Whatever the true nature of their relationship, through their actions they've made it very clear they're extremely good friends who intend to spend a lot of time together. This message has been hammered home in time for the tour to begin so it won't be seen as odd for Grimmy to be hanging around, which has likely been the goal for a while.

MOC - if you'd like to talk about the impact Harry/Nick possibly being together could have on 1D, you could post in the old thread linked below and I'll reply there. It's the only general 1D thread I recall seeing. That applies to anyone wanting a bit of general 1D discussion now the tour's kicking off :).

by Anonymousreply 38302/21/2013

JJ I think 1D will be over in 3 to 5 years. 10+ years or never is the most realistic timeline to H coming out (if he ever does) in my opinion.

I reckon when they break up it won't be due to a single member quitting, more all of them being too tired and sick of being on constant tour. I think some of them are already feeling the strain, who wouldn't! That said I think Zayn should go solo post 1D, don't know if any of the others would be good enough. H has the charisma to be solo and Liam has a good enough voice, but I think only Zayn has the full popstar package, he's just got to get over his shyness!

To get back onto Grimmy chat, he's resurfaced on Twitter with a little shout out to the Brits. Reckon he's had a little nap :)

I still find strange that Harry and Grimmy don't mind about being seen like a couple by literally everyone in the UK showbussines and media. This only means they wants to come out as a couple. Otherwise I don't undestand the lack of reaction of Harry's management. I mean, don't you think they would have advise him to be a little discreet with this display of his love life? I think Harry wants to come out and he parades everywhere with his boyfriend with the blessing of his management company.

Grimmy at one point kept saying to Harry "your mouth isn't in the right place you need to move further up" and then giggle. It was just small innuendos like this. and also asking if it was too late to be in 1d's tour video "i think i deserve to be in it" again paraphrasing.

Yeah, I'm sorry but to me, those two are 100% together. And they seem to not be giving a single crap about what people think. Which is good. Unless we get a confirmation from them (which I doubt since they both are very secretive about their personal lives) or they plain get caught kissing, they're not going to be "out". Although that's pretty much what they're doing, being out without actually being out. I think considering their circumstances it's a good approach. Harry's leaving, things will get more calm, he's gonna start getting linked to every female on the face of the earth so they're just having as much fun as possible at the moment. What intrigues me is if their relationship (whether open or monogamous) will survive the time apart. Only time will tell.

The follow up photo is VERY suspect! I think 100% they are together, just keeping the debate alive before we all get accused of 'confirmation bias'. Wonder where LG is?

Loving the hand pics!

Going back to the idea of whether or not they will ever "come out" I have to say I agree 100% that I doubt they would do so anytime in the near future when they're both indeed at the highest points ever of their careers (and maybe still going higher!) However, what I worry about more is the idea of someone else giving it away? Not even necessarily them being maliciously "outed" but just, if this really is a thing that so many people know, the is basically common awareness or close to it, at least in certain parts of the industry and press, and surely among their fellow celebs, I wonder about people maybe taking jokes/etc a step too far, especially since Nick has to deal with both famous and non-famous people LIVE on air every day. There have definitely been times when Harry has come up that has seemed awkward, and I would say the Simon Amstell thing was probably the closest to uncomfortable territory with someone who probably does know "too much" so to speak.

I mean, depending on how legit this even this, if it is a thing known in certain circles, I wouldn't be surprised at all if it's ever something that Fincham addresses as a "do not bring up on air" topic, especially with how things are ramping up lately, but who knows. I just get the feeling that other celebs, who don't necessarily give a crap, making comments at some point soon that might take it too far.

I don't understand why everyone here seem to think Harry and Nick won't come out as a couple soon (by "soon" I mean in a few months, max a year). For me is very clear they did everything to make people believe they are an item.This and the lack of response from Harry's management. I mean, how will they explain Nick's visits on the 1D tour (and be sure there will be plenty of those if they want to keep their bond)?

R423 Well, from a business point of view them coming out would be a bad idea. But who knows? They might go punk rock on Harry's management, and the BBC, and just confirm it. It is a possibility.

by Anonymousreply 42602/21/2013

i think Nick and Harry are pulling a "glass closet",they are openly spending too much time together,being tactile with each other and acting couple-y but arent confirming nor denying the relationship.

It's such a shame that Harry has to go on tour really,maybe Modest is letting him do whatever he wants knowning that once the tour stars he and Nick wont be spending much time together so the speculations wont be as loud as they are now and the general public along with the young fans see Harry as straight and Nick as his good friend.

I also agree with Mimi in R377 ,whatever the nature of their relationship is,it's crystal clear that these two love spending time together and are extremely happy being in each other's company.

by Anonymousreply 42702/21/2013

Sometimes I get the vibe Harry isn't bothered about 1D anymore, I mean he's made so much money that could (if sensible) set him for life. He seems very much into the indie/alternative music scene and 1D is kind of restricting in that sense. Maybe he's just riding out the contract? He's surrounded by people who are open and confident in themselves it must be rubbing off on him.

by Anonymousreply 42802/21/2013

R429, I think he would be a lot more likely to leave if they weren't so close, which I genuinely believe they are. I mean, you can talk about "manufactured" bands as much as you want, but it doesn't take much to see that those boys lucked out and get along really well, and their families have become close too. I don't see Harry walking away from that soon. But I do agree he probably feels restricted, as his own music taste is farther and farther away from the type of music he's making. I remember someone pointing out that Nick commented on the show once something about "sometimes popstars don't even like their own albums" and I've always suspected he could have been referring to Harry - if it was meant with any seriousness, I don't see a popstar telling just anyone that, and Harry's the only one of Nick's music-y friends that would be in a situation where he's being made to push an image, etc, and not doing his own thing. Also it makes more sense that a popstar wouldn't like their own album if they were in a band rather than doing a solo thing. I mean, I'm not saying Harry hates everything with One Direction by any means, especially since he does seem to constantly try not to take everything for granted, and maybe he does genuinely like some of the tracks, but I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of their music isn't to his taste. I wonder if he was hoping they'd be able to branch out more with the second album instead of doing almost the exact same thing.

(Sorry, this post has taken quite a 1D tour. I guess in terms of Nick and Harry, I'm just pointing out that even if Harry isn't happy with One Direction musically, I don't see him totally breaking away from it - and the expectations/public image along with that - anytime soon, so I wouldn't hold my breath for that being something he'll do to come out.)

by Anonymousreply 42902/21/2013

R430 I've always been convinced he meant Tulisa.

by Anonymousreply 43002/21/2013

430 - I too always thought that comment about pop stars not liking their own album was about Harry. I personally get the impression Harry hates the music one direction have to put out. i'm sure he is very proud of the band, and the success they have with the music they produce but its clearly very far removed from anything Harry would like himself. Harry will be the Robbie Williams of the band for me, in terms of success and being famous, but I'm not 100% convinced his solo adventures will be necessarily in performing. He's is an unbelievable networker, I can imagine him having a lot of offers of various different things once 1D are done. Time will tell.

by Anonymousreply 43102/21/2013

About Harry's music tastes, I agree he does seem to love indie music. He is not the only one into another type of music. Zayn adores R&B, Louis has impecable musical taste. It is posible to make this kind of music while loving a total different genre.

by Anonymousreply 43202/21/2013

H - everything you said.

by Anonymousreply 43302/21/2013

I can't imagine Harry liking the music 1D are making but let's be real,they are a teen band with fanbase aged 10-18 max and the kind of music they make might be way far from Harry's taste (and i'm sure the other boys have different music preferences as well) but it's catchy and it sells and in the case of 1D that's what matters the most,and i can't see 1D changing their sound to be honest.

I too agree with everything H said.

R427 There is a general 1D thread here which is still open.

by Anonymousreply 43602/21/2013

I don't think (apart from Niall) that any of the boys would be fans of 1D if they weren't in it, but I don't think that means that they hate their own music or are not proud of it. I think they all prefer the second album to the first because they got more input.

I'm interested in what's going to happen in the aftermath of this 'hands' picture. The press have always printed a story about H the day after any twitter or tumblr 'storm', they obviously check both regularly. For example, H's visits to friends at Uni and the subsequent documentation of that on twitter always make the papers. This picture is a pap shot I think, so it'll definitely be shopped round the papers, and it's widely available now anyway. So my thinking is that if we don't see it reported anywhere at all, that would seem to be proof to me of a pay off, and therefore confirmation of the relationship.

I agree with those saying H's management and PR team have probably let up on him as te boys are going to be away for a long time soon and there'll be plenty of rumoured fan hook ups to keep everyone busy.

by Anonymousreply 43702/21/2013

N16, What do you think about the fact that none of the papers ran any of the "cozier" shots of H and N from H's birthday then? Those were pap shots too, could have been shopped around the same. Do you think they were paid off? (Not meaning to sound confrontational, mind you, just curious! I found that odd myself, but it made me suspect the hands pictures probably won't be put out. The news will be two days old tomorrow anyway, and surely One Direction starting tour will be more of a story?)

by Anonymousreply 43802/21/2013

I don't want to sound like a 'shipper' but this has really messed with my head, it feels so strange to be interested and root for a couple, and for them to actually be together?

I don't know, but it just feels really surreal.

And yes it's pretty certain in my mind that they are together, after last nights antics plus the industry tweets (the daily mail one was what swayed me on those being based on evidence rather than gossip), I couldn't be more sure without photo evidence

by Anonymousreply 43902/21/2013

R439 I think it must be a payoff - any red top in its right mind would kill for the traffic a pic like that would generate online surely? They wouldn't be breaking a code of ethics by posting the pics either, given that it wouldn't 'out them' in the way a pic of them kissing in a cab would. I'm suspicious they weren't posted, and that the cosier ones from last night weren't, although the DM did post the ones of them in a cab together with N looking like the cat that got the cream!

The hands pics are poor quality but just look at the terrible quality of the pics that were first published when Perrie was spotted outside Zayn's house. The whole thing is fishy.

I find it very interesting how things have changed now we have camera phones and Twitter. Definitely reckon Lance Bass would have been snapped with his PA in a compromising position back in the day!

I think most sceptics always assume there's "the gay one" in every boyband, and after seeing Harry and Nick's behaviour portrayed in the papers, Harry following Nick around like a puppy and Nick swooning on radio, I doubt many would be surprised if they come out. The general public wouldn't care enough to make a fuzz. Sure, they might get some hate due to the age difference but considering Harry's past "relationship" with Flack, the backslash wouldn't last long. The angry mob would mostly consist of 1D's and particularly Harry's younger fans, the more conservative and/or homophobic parents and the always scary "larry" shippers. And to be honest, I don't think it would be as bad as we think. This is all just personal opinion, of course.

by Anonymousreply 44902/21/2013

R450, I do genuinely feel that you're right about it not being THAT big a deal overall - in the UK. If One Direction were solely focused there, things would be completely different. But they've "cracked" America, they're putting so much effort into the fanbase they've cultivated there, and while the UK public are more than used to all the Styles/Grimshaw antics constantly in the papers, American audiences don't have a clue who Nick is (and a lot probably don't even know about the Caroline thing!) Boybanders might have stereotypes, but Harry is definitely the "womanizer", and the most he's ever been hyped up there was because of the TSwift stunt. I think it would be a HUGE deal over there, unfortunately.

by Anonymousreply 45002/21/2013

R450, Yeah there would be "Who's Nick Grimshaw?" articles like when he took over the Breakfast Show except 1000000000000000x worse if the context was "Harry Styles' secret gay lover" they were already predisposed to dislike. Obviously Nick has had to deal with bad comments in the press etc but I think that it would be a NIGHTMARE for him if this was public just because of One Direction's global reach (they didn't win that award for nothing). It's bad enough sudden attention any time of them gets a girlfriend, and there would be even more attention on Nick.

And like others have said, it's really strange to have been watching these people for so long, essentially 'shipping' them whilst trying to remain fairly sceptical and rational and then finding out there's actually a strong likelihood it's true. It's exciting!

by Anonymousreply 45402/21/2013

There is not a huge difference in the US and UK audience. That is a stereotype. Gross homophobia is a problem everywhere. Most young people in the US are not homophobic now. Their parents are often young enough now to be included in that. Only the very religious ones are an issue. The UK/European attitude that America is so much worse about all the isms is a bit much.

So, potentially it would not be a huge deal.

by Anonymousreply 45502/21/2013

R456, I'm not saying that there's a huge difference in terms of homopbia - I'm just saying that the gay rumours are a lot more prominent in the UK right now, people in the UK know who Nick is and know how close/always together the two of them are, would be less surprised by it. It would be a lot more unexpected in the US, and therefore a bigger deal, in my opinion at least. Ironically, the only thing that I've seen US media ever question Harry's sexuality over were those who thought "dating" Swift in itself was a giveaway. I guess what I'm saying though is that even just looking at something like Daily Mail comments, you can tell a lot of readership think there's something going on, but that line of thought isn't anywhere as prevalent in the US audiences, from what I've seen at least.

This was also a comment in the DM article in the "best rated" section with around 200 likes:

" I've heard in the industry it's known Harry and grimmy have been an item and his womanising ways are a cover up. Fast forward 20 years and we will see if he is still straight "

R456 I live in Canada and am exposed to a lot of US media, and I personally think it would be a HUGE deal in the media and not because there are more homophobic people etc. but just because like someone mentioned, it would come out of nowhere. Every radio station mentions the Harry womanizing stories, so much so that even my out of touch grandparents and mother know about him and Taylor S.

Our media is also a lot more broad, if that makes any sense. I feel like in the UK they have their own bubble and are much more connected almost? I feel like I'm not explaining myself properly and may be offending people, but I think like the media reaction would be a lot different over here.

The Louis tweet most likely refered to the article about Liam and Boy george. The two (Liam and Boy George) have had a rather heated argument on twitter today that Louis also weighed in on. So probably no relation to Harry and Grimmy.

by Anonymousreply 46402/21/2013

R460 - I haven't seen Louis's tweet but I think he is referring to the attached article which is pretty well just a hatchet job on James Corden, and anyone else the writer can think of. It contains the following:

"As for Corden’s “impromptu” snog with Radio One Breakfast Show host, Nick Grimshaw, I was minded of one of The Three Little Pigs getting jiggy with a fey Keith Richards."

I presume Keith Richards was chosen for his interest in drugs rather than fashion given the general tone of the article too. The comments are reassuringly very anti the Daily Mail for once.

Seriously don't know what Liam was thinking with his comments though; surely an explanation and an obviously insincere apology was the way to go.

Pretty sure Louis's tweet was about the general/Corden article, not the Liam thing - he seemed to be referring to the BRITs itself being an important night, made me think he must be talking about an article that bashed the whole ceremony, which that one does. Louis is good friends with Corden too so it makes sense he'd take a stab back at them.

No way should he have taken Boy George on, Liam just comes off as a total idiot. Then all the homophobic tweets from 1d fans.

Not exactly good publicity. Unfortunatly some of 1d are starting to look like arseholes.

Cocaine is an important part of a healthful night out. The toxicity levels could be much worse, the half life is relatively short, and for nonaddictive personalities responsible use is no more dangerous than most legal feel good potions.

R515 yes I'd rather assumed that. It's a shame when sarcasm has to be explained to posters, rather ruins the intended effect.

As for restricting behaviour to respect people who shouldn't be on here that's a ridiculous statement. Should TV channels not show sex post-watershed in ass kids haven't turned off?

Parents shouldn't allow their kids free reign on the internet if that's a concern (DL gets blocked by a lot if parent filters) AND If they are smart enough to find this thread they are probably smart enough to pick up on sarcasm/ be aware if the real world.

by Anonymousreply 52202/22/2013

I'm saying all this as someone who used it recreationally for a long time and never had issues with it: It's not good to binge all night on it with any regularity. We notice they both don't seem to sleep much. It can also make asthma worse, and Harry uses an inhaler and is always coughing lately. Some people should just try to stay away from it. I don't have a problem with it in general.

Anyway sorry, Nick and Harry etc...

by Anonymousreply 52302/22/2013

Nick also uses an inhaler.

by Anonymousreply 52402/22/2013

I think, at the moment, as the Breakfast show host that Nick won't be doing anything stronger than alcohol (at least when out); it would be just too much of a risk. It was noticeable that the tabloids all concentrated on how much they had had to drink and I don't think I saw any insinuations about anything else (apart from, I think, the Mirror referring to Jaime Winstone).

Given that they obviously can't say anything stronger that "bromance", even the Daily Star have gone with "Brit winner's 24hr bromance with DJ" for today's front page, which must frustrate them if they could try a different angle I think they might.

by Anonymousreply 52502/22/2013

Again, as someone who indulges, if you're responsible I don't see an issue; as long as you know your own limits and how addictive you are. I wouldn't recommend anyone under 18 going there though. And surround yourself with other responsible people. I agree that Nick is probably being very careful though and I didn't get much more than drunk from his show Thursday; Harry, too, I thought just seemed very pissed. He would have been far more energetic if anything else had been involved; and I imagine Nick's a whole other level on that stuff. The only indicator is that they were awake at all; but at that time of morning and if you can do it, it's not impossible without some help.

I can't work it out; their relaxed attitude this morning to the Star front page seems odd as surely everyone's going to read something into it. Just having the hint of "romance" would surely tip people off??

by Anonymousreply 52602/22/2013

I think that, for whatever reasons, they can't be outed in the press, so, to borrow the phrase someone used elegantly earlier, they are going for a "glass closet". The press can't really say anything more than they have, so no shocking headlines to go worldwide (I am presuming part of the problem is the Pepsi contract/US etc) but Nick and Harry can be together in public so long as they are "well behaved". To be honest, this would seem to work for all involved, so no downside really.

by Anonymousreply 52702/22/2013

But how do you explain the Metro article, C? Do you think because it was online and at the most low key time of the week, they could get away with it? I guess as we discussed at the time, the fact that Harry was neither in the headline nor the tags and there were no quotes etc... explains the lack of reaction. I'm still surprised about it till now though.

For anyone new, or just anyone who can't be bothered reading back through 20 odd threads, a genius fangirl on tumblr (with a bright future in research?!) has put together this timeline of N and H, dating back around a year. It clearly shows how when H is in the uk, he's pretty much with N 24/7

R529 - Yes, I agree the Metro article was in a way quite shocking, but buried online on a Friday afternoon meant it was done at the least likely time/place to get attention, which must have been intentional. They tweeted something leading yesterday as well, but it will be interesting if they ever commit a story to print; although if they haven't after the last couple of days one presumes they won't.

R533 - No subtly at all, just nothing direct, which I suppose covers them.

One wonders if there is anyone, who is interested in Nick and Harry in the UK (and of course isn't a Larry fan; apparently they were very pleased with the Larry hug at the table, but if you actually watch the clip Louis completely avoids looking at Harry the whole time; it's actually rather odd) who don't think they might be together now?

For me what's telling about the Metro situation is that that article was also put out after they had stopped tweeting for the day - there wasn't a single tweet that links to that article, although there have been several suggestive tweets since that link to less obvious articles.

Also, according to Twitter there was a mention of H and N on Loose Women just now? Apparently they talked about their bender and played a clip from the show or something, anyone see or hear anything more about that?

C/R537, depends how you define 'together' I suppose.

I still don't believe they are in an 'exclusive' relationship. Disregarding any other reasons for that view, it just doesn't seem practical?

Boy George's tweet was interesting. He's pretty outspoken but a nice chap by all accounts.

by Anonymousreply 54402/22/2013

R542 An overactive imagination and some of verbal interaction on the radio last year. Of course, it would be a similar pattern to an older/younger dymnamic so nothing that unusual

There has been some comment previously about N having an S/M history or preference too.

But as I said, mostly, my overactive imagination

R544 I agree, I just cant imagine a journo doing it just because they can. Someone somewhere must have a purpose, either to see if it goes unchallenged or to test the waters. And dammit I just want to know

I do agree that Metro must have a reason to post that article.

by Anonymousreply 54602/22/2013

LG, if Nick will visit Harry on tour it is fair to believe they are in an exclusive relationship. If we will not see them together at least 3-4 times per month, they probaly have an open relationship or are just fwb.

by Anonymousreply 54702/22/2013

R542 - I remember reading something absolutely ages ago (maybe around September) which was incoherent tumblr ranting by some madman/women that suggested Harry had left Louis for Nick as he (N) was a top and Harry was a power bottom.

Absolutely unjustified incoherent ranting with no background whatsoever but made me spit my coffee to hear some random who didnt even seem to know what the terms meant spouting that stuff.

And then as I think is understandable, I started to wonder what the dynamics were.

It was something in the Call or Delete and in the Frburary radio clip but for the life of me I cant remember what. Ill re-listen at some point to see if I can put my finger on it. AS I said, mostly an overactive imagination though

by Anonymousreply 54802/22/2013

LG - It was more a comment about the general public really, hence the "might". What I meant really was that anyone reading articles/looking at online photographs etc would probably have wondered if they were dating, even if they didn't come to the conclusion that they were.

R548 - Sadly I can't imagine we will hear too much about Nick's visits; he won't be hugely recognizable outside of the UK so the chance of Twitter sightings will be rather reduced.

I think it's possible he could visit regularly and still just be a f***buddy or best mate (if my mate was on a world tour in Europe I'd bag a free trip as regular as I could) and could also he could go and never be seen and therefore we'd never know (they could easily move Nick around in other countries without being seen)

Yeah, wondering about the dynamics is fun, but as we have little to go, you're right it's more imaginations than anything.

Anyway :).

C, maybe the UK tour will give us some sort of pattern and we can then extrapolate a bit for the rest of the tour? Of course it's logical that he'd maybe only travel outside the country once or twice or so if at all, but if he does attend a few concerts in the UK it might mean that he could also attend a few abroad. For European dates he could just travel for the weekend, but for anything else it would have to be during his holiday time. As for twitter sightings, yeah, unlikely but possible.

JJ it was I who said about N supposedly being into S&M, I was told this by my friend who has slept with a couple of guys who have also slept with him (way back in the day I might add) I don't know about dom/sub or anything heavy, I think it was more along the lines that he liked to be in charge basically.

That combined with him being a top and the stereotypes that stem from that, plus the dynamic between him and H (which I think is more H having a passive personality in general and being drawn to big characters - Louis, James Corden, Ben Winston) I can see why people might get that idea though.

I haven't brought it up since I initially shared it as I don't really want to be assuming things about anyone else's sex life and it's not my place to. Just making sure there aren't impressionable fans coming here who'll start squawking about N leading H round on a dog lead or anything extreme :) I know there have already been quite a few tumblr posts floating around claiming N is unsavoury and even that he is taking advantage of H when he's drunk which makes me so angry!

by Anonymousreply 55502/22/2013

Just realised that was all a bit incoherent - basically if someone takes charge or more of a lead in the bedroom I don't personally consider that to be akin to a Dom/sub relationship but yes, there are undertones. No one knows how things play out behind doors though, without being too personal my boyfriend and I have a power dynamic in public that is almost completely at odds with how we are privately - who knows!

by Anonymousreply 55602/22/2013

Never seen this website before, just saw the link on twitter. They are discussing them.

The pic was when N seemed to be at a house party after a few drinks. The pose was with a woman but suggesting he is a bottom. Could be just joking around but its they same sort of pic that a gay friend of mine has been known to pose in after he too has a few drinks also with woman. I could be wrong but if you add that to the tweets suggesting same. I can't remember who exactly wrote the tweets. Obvs not fans, seemedito be people who might know. Most suggesting what N was although one person said that H appeared to be that too.

by Anonymousreply 55702/22/2013

Thanks, N16. It was more about the dynamic really than any actual "activity." As you said it's about Harry and his passive personality and attraction to strong personalities, whether as friends or romantically. That is more where my curiosity lies, not the details.

For some reason I've got it in my head that Cowell sees Harry as a young version of himself, totally baseless of course, but I get such a strong feeling of that from these photos, especially as they are candids, he looks so genuinely fond, which I can't say I have seen often!

Would love to be a fly on the wall of a conversation between the two, suspect their main point of discussion would be world domination ;)

Add to that the great(but pretty unsubstantiated in any way) Simon rumours that get quoted on TV constantly (including by people he works with like Ant and Dec in banter) and those about Max Clifford teaching SC how to go undercover in the old days and actually I can see your point.

Mumford and Sons ignored them backstage and taunted them on stage, this Bugg called them teribble, just pathetic really.

It may be true, but I don't think it's particularly kind or classy to go around saying those things about other musicians. They may not write their own songs, but they do work hard and they have a fanbase and all their money for a reason. No, they're not the Beatles, but they themselves have agreed it's a silly comparison; and I don't suppose for a moment any of them would call themselves "rock stars". A simple "wouldn't really call them that" would suffice. But he'll get press out of it - a bit in the US - so he's not done himself any harm except for with the 1D fans.

Oasis used to do it; the last wave of indie rockers did it (The Enemy, I seem to remember, were fans of slagging off pop music); no surprise that a new wave's gonna give it a go.

On the other end of the scale, Liam Payne is really annoying and should have left Boy George well alone. He also had issue with the Empire State Building lot, didn't he? Wouldn't be surprised if it turns out he's secretly a bit of a prick, in comparison to his "adorable" image. The condescending tone of his Tweets really rankled me for some reason.

The problem is that unless 1D get better at pithy tweets they are just going to look childish; Liam's tweets to Boy George even contained at least two spelling errors (not to mention all of the other grammatical issues). Given how young they actually are I think it might be better if they just followed Harry's dignified silence.

I think Harry intentionally stays out of the drama,i mean he has to deal with all these ridiculous stories on the papers i cant imagine him wanting to get into twitter fights as well,and he maybe doesnt care to comment who knows.I'd like it if he commented on the womanizing rumors though,he did say in a couple of inteviews(i think one was with Fabulous back in September)that he isnt a womanizer and all but in most interviews he avoids the subject and politely gives vague replies.

Given their anti-online bullying stance I'd think them apparantly ganging up on Bugg is a bad move.

Also didnt Jake get set up with Cara for a night back during the Harry/Nick birthday show.

Can someone check his PR isnt Hackford Jones

On a different note i dont think Nick will follow Harry around on tour like some seem to believe; he has a demanding job and it's not like he can drop everything at any time and go visit Harry.If they dont come out as a couple,which they wont let's be honest,Nick's presence on tour will definitely raise eyebrows and there wont be an easy way to explain it.Maybe Nick will travel once or twice to see him on tour(possibly combining the trip with vacations on his time off)and they'll probably still be meeting each other during the UK tour but i highly doubt we'll hear about it.They clearly spend too much time together that we know nothing about and are good at covering it up.

Do you know that Liam is a teenager and Boy George is a grown ass 51 old man? Do you know that BG started the drama calling Liam names and practically lying about all the issue with the 1D boy? Go look at BG tweets. For two days he is in a ridiculous fight with teens on twitter, calling them idiots, pigs and all kind of offensive names. Yes Liam was overreacting but this guy is a disgrace. I am a very tenacious person and I'm very sad looking at Harry who let everyone trample him.

R597 You can probably tell by my former responses on here that I am not the biggest fan of either Tomlinson or Payne. And Horan is fast beginning to annoy me to. Okay, so J Buggs had a pop and they have every right to reply but in doing so they have just gotten Buggs even more publicity. I can see where Buggs would use 1D to get himself noticed. As someone said 1D are the biggest thing since sliced bread right now, therefore a pop at them is going to get noticed.

I have had time to go and read the Payne/Boy George tweets etc. Payne just comes across as someone who is annoyed that Boy George didn't know who he was.

In answer to another poster, on the subject of Louis Tomlinson addressing Larry on the 1D movie. Nothing would surprise me. I really do not like him. He just comes across as being vile and nasty. What I've heard about him really makes me dislike him even more. Don't want to go into it on here obviously.

On another note, don't know if that's N behind H. Would be nice if it was.
