Harry Styles opened the Grammys 2021 with his song Watermelon Sugar, which went on to win an award for his efforts. Harry is believed to have been the subject of a song or two himself due to his early years in the spotlight. However, many have wondered whether his new-found songwriting abilities come from a very personal place.
Has Harry Styles written songs about ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift?
There have been rumours there is one song about Taylor Swift, but it was not Watermelon Sugar.
In fact, this song is on Harry’s first album, and is far closer to a ballad.
The song, Two Ghosts, references ‘same red lips, same eyes blue,’ suggesting the blue-eyed Taylor could be the subject.

He may have been looking back on the relationship in the song, but concludes: “We’re just two ghosts standing in the place of you and me.
“Trying to remember how it feels to have a heartbeat.”
After the album was released in 2017, questions were asked about the song, especially by Harry’s friend and BBC radio host Nick Grimshaw.
Harry told Nick the song was ‘pretty self-explanatory’ in a Radio One interview, but was begged for more answers.
In the end, Nick played the song, joking: “So here we go, the one about Taylor Swift.”
As this was said, Harry shouted “No!” from the studio, perhaps because he feared people would now know the truth behind the song.
Given Nick is a friend of Harry’s, it may be there was a confidence broken here, otherwise it may have been a playful jest between mates.
There have also been suggestions his ex-girlfriends Kendall Jenner and Camilla Rowe were included on his first album, though these have never been confirmed.
As for Taylor, however, she is fairly open about writing about former lovers, and Harry has now accepted he was the subject of a few of her tunes.
Speaking about Taylor’s songs with Howard Stern in 2020, Harry said: “I think about what it means to me to write a song about somebody else and for somebody else to do that, it’s like flattering.
“Even if the song isn’t that flattering, you still spent time on it.
“Using Taylor as an example, she’s a great songwriter. So at least they’re good songs.
“The only time you really think, ’is this song too personal?’ is if you think about, ‘is this going to be really annoying for the other person?’ Because I do [care].”
It is widely believed the songs Style and Out of the Woods are written about Harry Styles, and some even thought the catchy tune I Knew You Were Trouble was about the One Direction star.
But he echoed his sentiments about enjoying her songs in 2017 to Rolling Stone, saying: “I mean, I don’t know if they’re [Out of the Woods and Style] about me or not, but the issue is, she’s so good, they’re bloody everywhere.
“I write from my experiences; everyone does that. I’m lucky if everything [we went through] helped create those songs.
“That’s what hits your heart. That’s the stuff that’s hardest to say, and it’s the stuff I talk least about.
“That’s the part that’s about the two people. I’m never going to tell anybody everything…
“She doesn’t need me to tell her they’re great. They’re great songs… It’s the most amazing unspoken dialogue ever.”
