With all of us having spent the past few weeks in the throes of a second wave of Beatlemania by marking the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ first visit to the U.S., One Direction member Harry Styles hinted his group is in some ways on par with the Fab Four.
Styles told UK’s NME, “We all sat and watched the film of the Beatles arriving in America. And, to be honest, that really was like us. Stepping off the plane, the girls, the madness.”
Styles backtracked a bit, adding, “But none of us think we’re in the same league as them music-wise. We’d be total fools if we did. Fame-wise, it’s probably even bigger, but we don’t stand anywhere near them in terms of music.”
Well, at least he said that! LOL!
