10 Reasons Why Harry Styles Should Go Solo

Happy birthday, Harry Styles! You’re 21 today, an event truly worth celebrating here in the U.S. You can now buy yourself a drink at a bar. You can now buy us drinks at a bar. Screw drinks, let’s pop bottles of champagne. Hell, you can even start your solo career! That’s right. We said it.

There are plenty of rumors surrounding Harry Style’s potential solo career, but so far they remain just rumors. Arguments abound on both sides—should he stay? should he go?—but when it comes to reasons why Harry should pursue a solo career, we’ve already got ten.

Parks and Recreation’s Ben Schwartz barely knows who One D is, but he does at least know Harry Styles’ name. Watch Schwartz try —and fail— to name the other four members of the boy band.

He doesn’t need help working a camera.

The camera loves Harry, and if this photo proves anything, it’s that Harry loves the camera right back. He doesn’t need the rest of One Direction to help him work the camera— Harry can do it all by himself. All the better for the future press photos promoting his solo career.

 

He’s hotter than Zayn.

Eeny, meeny, miny, HARRY. Sorry, Zayn Malik. We adore your voluminous hair, the boyish twinkle in your eyes, and the way you emanate a puppy yearning for love, but we’re going with Harry on this one. Not only does he have looks, Harry possesses a devilish charm that not only adds mystery to his aura, it makes him a classic bad boy. #SexyStyles4Lyfe

 

Simon Cowell predicted it.

Cowell told Daily Star last year that he sees One Direction eventually becoming Five Directions. “Bands don’t stay together forever,” he said. “I think they will make at least two more albums together, and they are in the middle of one right now.” When asked if he thought Harry would leave later that year, Cowell responded, “I don’t think that is going to happen for a while.” So, you’re saying there’s a chance, Cowell?

He has more Twitter followers than One Direction.

Social media is a great indicator of an artist’s popularity. If Harry is single-handedly beating out One Direction for Twitter followers now, think of the spike in tweetybirds he’d see if he broke from the group.

 

Ditto for Instagram.

Not surprising, but true.

 

He has everyone else’s parts covered.
