Harry Styles says Fifty Shades Of Grey is "educational"
The One Direction singer, who's currently single, had a flick through the racy bestseller at the request of a mate.
He told The Sun: "I haven’t bought it, but a female friend of mine was forcing me to read it out to her the other day.
“They were like, ‘Just borrow this,’ and I was like, ‘Hmmm’. It seems interesting. I could probably learn from it, I don’t know. I feel like it’s an educational and interesting read.”
Not a week goes by without 18-year-old Harry being linked to one gorgeous woman or another.
Since splitting from Caroline Flack, 32, back in January, he's rumoured to have hooked up with models Emma Ostilly, Cara Delevingne and Pixie Geldof, plus radio DJ Lucy Horobin and, most recently, Natalie Imbruglia.
Harry was rumoured to have got together with 37-year-old singer Natalie at comedian James Corden's wedding last month.
The pair were spotted "chatting and giggling" at the reception and reportedly headed back to their hotel together.
Harry admitted to Alan Carr on his show Chatty Man: “We'd never met before, and that was literally it. We had a drink.
"I guess we kinda left at the same time so it might have looked a bit dodgy."
Harry insists his “ladies' man” status is just the press getting carried away.
He added: “I don’t want to be viewed as a womaniser or whatever.
“I’m not quite as I’m made out to be. I have friends who are girls and sometimes even if I give them a lift home I’m ‘dating them’, or whatever. It’s fine, I have a lot of fun.
“I think that’s important. You don’t want to look back with any regrets, but at the same time if I met someone who I got on with and I liked then who knows?
“I don’t really want to say the names of people I might like - it wouldn’t be right.
“I know a lot of people are up for sitting down and going through who they have slept with. I know sometimes it might come across in the paper that I’m a bit like that, but I’m really not.”
