When Harry Styles opened up about other artists' behavior

In a 2019 interview with The Guardian, Harry Styles spoke about people's behavior and how it's unnecessary to be rude.

The interviewer asked him about everything that comes with stardom and why wasn't Styles a complete nightmare for a human being by now? Although the As It Was singer is renowned in the music industry as a kind of medical freak, he has kept extraordinarily high levels of civility in his system.

Styles was flattered, as he said, "People who are successful and still nice When you meet successful artists who aren't kind, you wonder, ‘What's your excuse?’ Because I've met the other kind."


Styles had then finished reading Keith Richards' book as well as Elton John's. The intreviewer discussed whether extreme disobedience and artistic genius are mutually exclusive. Styles, who has just released his second solo album, Fine Line, with the penultimate track titled Treat People With Kindness, must hope not. To which Styles replied, "I just don't think you have to be a d**k to be a good artist. But, then, there are many good artists who are d**ks. So. Hmm. Perhaps I should start scaring babies in supermarkets?"
