Shade Alert! During a playful interview with CapitalFM, One Direction’s Niall Horan decided to diss Harry Styles’ ex, Taylor Swift. When asked who he liked better, Niall picked Tay’s bitter enemy, Katy Perry, instead of her! Click to watch!
Sorry, Taylor Swift, 25. Niall Horan, 22, may not have meant to drag her down but there’s may be some bad blood between Taylor and the One Direction member. Niall was forced to choose between Taylor and her arch rival, Katy Perry, 30. Turns out, it wasn’t that hard of a decision for him!
Perhaps Niall just likes Katy’s music better or he may have been showing solidarity for Harry Styles when he made his decision. CapitalFM caught up with the boys while backstage at the O2 arena, right before they kicked off the UK leg of their On The Road Again tour. The band still had time to play a round of “One Direction In One Minute,” where each member is asked an unusual question. When it was Niall’s turn, he was asked “Katy Perry or Taylor Swift.” It took him less than three seconds to decide.
“Katy P,” he said, looking pretty confident in his choice. While that may be a tough decision for most anyone, Niall made it look easy. He might have been sticking up for Harry, who is one of Taylor’s many famous exes.
Niall might have also been showing gratitude to Katy. She was the swing vote that kept him on X Factor, reports J-14. If Katy didn’t show support for Niall, he may not have gone on to join the biggest band of the world, so perhaps he was being thankful?
Oddly enough, Niall actually covered one of Taylor’s songs during a One Direction concert. While on stage during the last American show on their OTRA tour, Niall decided to celebrate his birthday a day early. He grabbed a guitar and figured he’d say good-bye to being 21 by singing Taylor’s “22.” Hmm. Singing Taylor’s song and then picking her rival over her? Seems very shady, Niall.
What do you think about Niall’s choice, HollywoodLifers? Do you think he was being shady or being honest?
