One Direction Perfect
​Harry Styles speaks about One Direction's latest single PerfectSyco

Harry Styles has addressed speculation if One Direction's latest song was influenced by his past relationship with Taylor Swift. The British boy band recently released their fifth album, Made In The AM, and it is their first without former member Zayn Malik, who left the band in March this year.

The single Perfect was penned by Styles and Louis Tomlinson. The lyrics read: "If you're looking for someone to write your breakup songs about, baby, I'm perfect."

Entertainment Tonight's Samantha Harris asked the 21-year-old singer whether he was referring to the Bad Blood hitmaker. Styles replied: "Obviously, you write a lot of stuff from personal experience, but it doesn't necessarily have to be so literal. People can interpret a lot of different things in different ways. And I'm not going to tell someone it's not about what they think it's about, because I think the whole point is - it's about whatever it means to you."

It was previously revealed that the Red singer was single for a long time since splitting up with Styles. Swift, who has a history of dating high-profile celebrities including Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, John Mayer, Zac Efron and Conor Kennedy, split with Styles in January 2014, after dating for two months.

During an interview with Glamour UK magazine, the Shake It Off singer, who is dating Scottish singer/DJ Calvin Harris admitted that she does not find it easy having a boyfriend. She said: "There is no easy way for me to engage with romance. I'm really busy, so I can't. And it's a good thing that I feel really independent and I feel that my friends are all I need."

"It's kind of a sad way I got there, though, being shamed into it. What else is it when you have two boyfriends in one year and everyone's calling you boy crazy, making jokes about you at awards shows? That's public humiliation. And I don't think its fair," she added.
