2022 is off to a rocky start for Harry Styles…morally speaking.
Sigh, let’s get back on track, shall we?
On January 12th, It was announced by his official headquarters accounts across social media that Harry Styles will be headlining the already sold-out Coachella festival on its big return from a two-year hiatus, which was brought on unexpectedly in 2020 as a result of the pandemic that mercilessly swept the globe.
Now in terms of there being an active covid threat, it remains a mystery why Coachella felt April 2022 was a safe time to return. New variants of the virus continue to emerge every few months, the latest being even more transmissible than the one that preceded it.
Although I suppose none of this variant nonsense truly matters when the elitists who once preached to us about how to live our lives at the start of the pandemic suddenly decided the virus is now irrelevant because they want to make money and have fun again.
Case and point: Harry Styles.
I’m old enough to remember a few finger-wagging “stay at home” messages from Harry himself, as well as this oh-so charitable 2020 t-shirt campaign he launched to prove how virtuous and giving he was at the start of the pandemic.
But it turns out he’s just another poser. Yet another sanctimonious Hollywood hypocrite creating rules for the public they don’t intend to adhere to themselves.
Harry’s hypocrisy would explain why he decided to hike it all the way to Italy over the holidays despite rising covid numbers (as a result of the new variants) and vacation with his entire family (and Weinstein’s bestie Olivia Wilde) instead of staying home in the UK, which would have served just as well if the virus was truly of concern to any of them.
Harry later proceeded to attend a packed and maskless New Year’s Eve party hosted by his bestie James Corden…
And well…we all know how that turned out:
Taking all of this covid variant talk into consideration, there is still a very real chance Coachella 2022 might be shelved again, and I can think of a few people who would be totally ecstatic about that coming to pass. Probably the thousands of non-US Love On Tour ticket holders Harry has neglected for years now, who purchased seats in 2019 to see him perform Fine Line live and have been abandoned in a concert-goer purgatory of sorts ever since.
Many ticketholders are reportedly stuck in this dreadful (and dare I say highly unethical) limbo where their shows have been postponed indefinitely, yet they are unable to receive refunds. Yikes! For many, depending on their local ticket distributors, they are allegedly unable to obtain a refund because the shows have not been officially “cancelled” yet, but at the same time there has been no further communication from Harry Styles or his team about what these abandoned fans can expect next.
This has been an ongoing issue for years, since the tickets originally went on sale in NOVEMBER 2019! The very least Harry and his moronic team can do is ADDRESS the flipping issue like professionals? Is that really too much to ask? Are you that busy, dude? Doing what, exactly? Dragging around sweaters to feed into your desperate PR ploy to garner more attention for your upcoming movie?
A film that also happens to feature the son (Nick Kroll) of Harvey Weinstein’s biggest henchman (Jules Kroll) whose firm unapologetically silenced and intimidated his most vocal victim. But Harry being buddy-buddy with this dude shouldn’t surprise any of us in the least, since he is openly dating Weinstein’s bestie Olivia Wilde, who was name-dropped in a Weinstein allegation years before the 2017 Ronan Farrow exposé dropped.
I digress. Back to the abandoned ticketholders!
These fans allegedly no longer have access to their own hard-earned money, while Harry gallivants around the world doing whatever his priviledged ass pleases, and marching to his own amoral tune. They have also been robbed of a Harry Styles live-show experience indefinitely (while watching the US fans be prioritized again and again) and stiffed for years by him and his team on social media, all of which is far more of an emotional blow than someone as seemingly heartless as Harry could ever begin to comprehend.
And all this despite him managing to complete the American leg of the tour and willfully signing on for several US festivals in the meantime. As can be expected, these non-US fans are rightfully irate and are done being given the cold-shoulder by Harry and his lousy HSHQ social media accounts. Imagine how disenchanted and hurt they are.
Now back to his controversial decision to headline Coachella:
It disturbs many of Harry’s fans that he has chosen to align himself with the infamously problematic festival attended yearly by none other than a bunch of drunk elitist posers and Californian wannabes, and whose owner Philip Anschutz has come under fire in the past for donating copious amounts of money to anti-LGBTQ and pro-gun organizations. This is all of course highly antithetical to Harry’s shiny new “queer-baiting” and “oh-so-kind” and “oh-so-anti-gun-violence” brand.
Even Harry’s good female friend Cara Delevingne somehow had the balls to call them out on this issue and take a firm, principled stance against attending the event, let alone headlining it!
But Harry’s sketchy anti-LGBTQ associations should come as a surprise to no one since:
1) He is dating an unapologetic transphobe in Olivia Wilde who makes many reckless and degrading remarks with regard to the LGBTQ community and has gotten away with it for years now.
Harry is also still following Bella Hadid on Instagram who is a proud homophobe apologist. She actively supports and posts praise on IG for a violent homophobe (Daniel Chetrit) who attacked Harry’s ex-bandmate Zayn Malik on the streets of NYC in June of 2021, calling him a “faggot” twice in a viral clip obtained by TMZ. And that was before her family later framed Zayn for harassment charges by barging into his home unannounced with hired security to make demands about his daughter.
A lot of what Harry has done (and several of the Hollywood entities he has associated himself with lately for personal gain) does not sit right with many of his most avid admirers. It is unfortunately beginning to demonstrate he is nothing more than a hypocrite at heart, who is repelling more and more of his own fans as the years progress. I dread to think where he will end up in five years if he continues down this crash course of moral corrosion and narcissistic self-destruction.
He seems to be on a massive power-trip and a perpetual lapse in good judgement, which resulted in him linking himself with someone as morally repugnant as Olivia Wilde, and abruptly ditching many of his loyal team members to opt for a more “diverse” look in 2021. Tokenism at its finest.
People of color are not virtue-signaling props to be employed at an artists’ convenience in a post-BLM-protests-society. Nor is it acceptable to use them as a justification (or a pretense to gain sympathy) for ditching and hurting people who have been loyal from Day One, and whose appearance in the end didn’t serve one’s political aims, such as Adam Prendergast. (Adam has been with Harry since the very early 1D days.)
Harry’s “Treat People With Kindness” brand at this point is nothing but a laughable scam.
Ya’ll zstans are so cringy and dumb and desperate to hop on any criticism of Harry to make Zayn look good. Your “golden boy” Zayn is sitting around with 4 harassment charges on probation and a tarnished legacy because of the underhanded ties he made and as karma for dogging Harry for years, and he can no longer receive professional accolades for burning professional bridges like a child. He will never be better than Harry in any way shape or form. They are both dumb and flawed, but Zayn is heartless narcissist whose actions helped create another heartless narcissist in Harry. Anyone trying to hold one over the other at this point is just a deluded stan and needs to stfu and stop clicking on my website.
It completely saddens my heart that this article even has to be written but we just cannot ignore what is going on with Harry. He has gone “Hollywood” and all of the fans that have helped him get there have been kicked to the side and left on the floor. It’s disgraceful in what he is doing.
Now I am seeing articles saying that Eros might get his own spin off- he literally was on the screen for 30 seconds at the very end of the frigging movie! It’s bloody ridiculous with all this fawning over him as if he has done something incredible, I can’t bear it.
For all of the 1 person who rightfully calls him out on his fake and hypocritical shit that he is doing, 10 people will defend and continue to support him no matter what he does or says. He knows this perfectly well, so he will continue doing what he is doing as he will have the back up of his fans/stans. But eventually if he carries on with alienating his fans and the general public, those 10 people will become 5, then eventually will become none. He is already sowing the seeds for his downfall, unfortunately it may take years but what you put out in the universe will come back to you.
The Coachella thing is pure elitist hypocrisy but the worst thing is not refunding people for tickets purchased in 2019 and not even having the decency to acknowledge those people. Postponed indefinitely is the equivalent of being canceled. If they did the right thing and canceled the concerts so people could get their money back, those people may have gone to new dates when they were scheduled but instead, they callously rip people off without a word. I don’t know about Europe and the UK, but we know from the situation in Australia that there’s no way concerts are happening any time in the foreseeable future. Harry is extremely wealthy. He can cancel so people get refunds and not even feel it. I hate to say it but it’s despicable to do this to fans.
i hated the bit about kicking team members to replace with random POC for image.
the tickets situation should be resolved before they star a new shows.
the Coachella owner is new questionable associate, why Harry just why???? he doesn’t care about his image???? don’t get it.
most celebrities have problematic side. but Harry is over doing it
That should read *a particular way and freely*
The Harry being ahead of the NFT game tweet had me rolling, thanks AD! 😀
I’ve been dragging my feet when it comes to losing hope – thinking that he’s still got some good inside him somewhere and hasn’t become completely self-absorbed and money-focused. But with lots of eye rolling and cringing going on when watching recent clips of him and seeing stuff like this continuing to happen, I’ve concluded that I am also disappointed and done with Mr. Harold until he, with his actions as well as his words, does better. I feel super bad for all the non-U.S. fans with ghost tickets, especially thinking about his choice to want to perform for people who only know Watermelon Sugar over them.
The repercussions were so negative that they(HSHQ) said about shows in South America in second semester.🙄
I don’t wanna go anymore…Not after all this bulshit!
I believe Harry meant every word of TPWK when he wrote it, but it’s so insincere.
This post was hard to read as I fear the Harry we once knew is gone for good.
I really dislike this version and will find it difficult to support what he does unless something dramatic happens. ☹
I blame ZAYN massively about Harry’s bad and horrible actions in our days, Harry he made it clear to Zayn how much he loves him, and ZAYN give him the biggest stab ever, by making Gigi the mother of his child, while Zarry could have had a family both of them via a surrogate. And after that Harry change and became the devil, who doesn’t care about anything again. To me his been taken advantage of, that is why his beyond cold now, including to that goat 🐐 olive oil. But still Harry could have done something about his relationship with ZAYN by telling the truth or even write a book, Am scared for him, to much money still no happiness in his life, he is damage, to a point of no return. On the other hand, he should no what is right and wrong in his Life, in that way no real excuse for Harry to behave like Dog and misbehave. We should realise, he should make mistakes, before he can learn his lesson after all his human, that includes Zayn also, without mistakes in your life, you can’t learn and became wiser tommorow.
Am giving them 5 years and by them, they will know what is real or none real. I will always love them, both. It’s good we tell them when they are going wrong.✌️✌️✌️✌️
This is hard to read. Yes return the cancelled tour tickets money. When singers get star treatment they get their hangers on stroking them telling them they can do no wrong , how it’s only a small section on their unhappy fans. Harry, wake up. Hollywood is not good for you. Remember that bakery?? Thanks AD it’s sure difficult to read. At this point he may be married to O and playing house having his son Ishmael!!
I never thought I’d write about Harry the way I’m doing lately. I have been following his career since 1D, he was always my number 1, sweet, talented, precious and broken many times. Now it’s hard for me to see the sparkle in her eyes. All of him is a character, dishonest, artificial and who disrespects who he was and struggled to be during Fine Line. Hearing those lyrics not only make me cry, they also make me angry, because what he wrote then clashes with what he does now.
I feel ripped off as a European fan, belittled. Harry will become a broken toy, another in Hollywood if he does not break with what surrounds him now, but perhaps this is what he wants, money, fame, power at the cost of losing himself along the way.
The girl in that tiktok …oh how much I agree with her like 💯…He . Is.A. Money . Making. Machine . His fans need to realise that soon ….And him using LGBTQ community is his day 1 pan to print more money …But fans get his attention in that way …and they becomes happy….But the truth is *He Is Using Fans*
I think I took all the criticism pretty superficially… but so many people seem to have been directly hit by Harry’s bad decision-making. And he is so cut off from his fans. It was not even him posting about Coachella … like he knew he will draw criticism. Harry is trying to dip his toes into too many things… I hope he doesn’t burn his feet that it makes him unable to even walk.
BTW, I had watched this review of Pleasing. I thought it was really unbiased and she made some really good points.
I hope he cleans up his mess soon.
The ‘I don’t use social media’ is getting old, I’m sure you can make a tweet or even get someone to make a tweet about the rest of the world’s tour situation without feeling its toxicity. Hshq is useless its just for posting things harry doesn’t want to post, no ones stupid its a image creation thing, harry’s a legend, a rare sight on the internet he doesn’t come and tell us to buy stuff, hshq does that he’s not like other artists who do that. But you can’t ignore the fact that social media has gotten you where you are, your fans for the past 11 yrs have gotten you here. I can understand the need to do better have a wilder appeal but he could have done that with his fans instead of abandoning them knowing full well they will still be just as supportive. It’s not like it takes much on his part he just had to press a couple buttons on a phone and that bate minimum work would be enough for the fans but alas.
Harry is Olivia’s B*tch he lost all his morality and dignity and self respect along the way. He just don’t care about anything anymore. He is losing fans, support faster than he can drop HS3, Everything that made Harry=Haz has been corrupted into This man that doesnt give 2 sh*ts about anything. He will be tarnished forever, because everything he does has a double meaning, his actions does not support his words. There must be honor in the words any one speaks.
I seriously can’t believe all of it, after doing an American Tour why does he have to do Coachella? He’s the one who began TPWK , and now he’s the one who’s being so inconsiderate towards people? Letting go of his crew is so unfair , when she said she wasn’t even told why she was being let go, that hurt. What even is he doing?! Forget about kindness , he’s hurting people on his road to , God knows where.😞
You are right on point ad,I’m really disappointed in him.
Saw some people defending him saying that we don’t own him and we should let him do whatever he wants and this must be a huge dream for him. So what about the fans who’ve been waiting to see him for 2 years? Who spent huge amounts of money to see him and and he refuses to acknowledge them? Yes, we don’t own him, yes, he can do whatever he wants, but the reason he can do whatever he wants is because of the fans. Who the hell is he without fans? “He’s a Grammy winning artist, you can’t control him”. Well, who tf streamed his music and supported him to make him even eligible to get that Grammy? It sure as hell wasn’t just one country (No shade to American fans, it’s not your fault). They’ve just been waiting on him for 2 whole years and, does he not owe them some answers? Where tf did your “TPWK” and Pride flag waving go when you were getting a shit load of money for performing at a festival owned by a homophobe? Where is Harry? I refuse to believe this is him.
Yes to all of this! But especially the mention of his new band members. I haven’t seen a lot of people address it but it’s glaringly obvious, tokenism at its finest. As with so many of his other public antics it was predicted by a lot of people because of course he needs to show how progressive he is and that’s the way to go about it smh
I just hope more people like Billy Porter will call him and his team out for their agenda when it comes to Gucci, so-called self-expression & queerness. I hate that Billy changed his statement slighlty because he was getting so much hate from H’s stans, he had ever right to say what he said, especially since Harry himself admitted that he doesn’t actually care about all of that.
Seeing everything in one place, the choices he’s made and the way he’s changed honestly just hurts.
Uuuuuf. This was hard to read, but again…We’ve been aware of his “God-Complex” wannabe shit since 2020 and it’s been getting clearer in 2021. Can’t believe he’s putting fans through all of this. Canceling the shows and giving refunds like Nialler did wouldn’t be so hard. And the fact that he’s headlining the very very problematic Coachella…it’s like he’s trying so hard to be this big relevant super star and trampling all of the core values poor Anne instilled in him from childhood. Now it’s just him pretending to be who he was. Tpwk is just a catch phrase now. He’s trying so hard to be “woke”. It’s just flat out disgusting at this point.
WOW!!! That was AWSOME AD!!! I feel like Harry is really focused on rebranding himself as an ASSHOLE.
From an Anon on the home page: “The amount of people who make excuses for H performing at Coachella like he “doesn’t have a say in it” so that he can never be held accountable for any career choices or that if people question his involvement they’re immediately “hating on him” is so frustrating. “If H doesn’t perform there for that reason he couldn’t perform other places because the owner owns more than just that festival”. Oh my, didn’t know it was so hard for a famous and ridiculously wealthy man to stand up for what he waves his flags about, for what he builds his image around and therefore makes money of. But then again he stays associated with a transphobe. Also saying that the US is just one country (so it’s ok to tour there) but Europe is made up of different countries makes no sense because covid doesn’t care about borders and others have managed to perform in Europe. The point is also rendered futile when H travels around Europe unnecessarily. But hey, the “larger community” ($$$) is way more important than the one he pretends to care about. Stans make me sick.”
From FineLine on the home page: “About Harry performing at Coachella. This person represents me…”
From Momo on the home page: “Practically every reply under that HSHQ tweet about Coachella is about disappointment in them not informing everyone who has had tickets for LOT since 2019 and are still waiting on confirmation about what’s happening, or disappointment in him headlining there due to the owner Philip Anschutz donating profits to anti-LGBT causes. I’m disappointed in all of this, he’s going against what he supposedly stands for, or used to stand for when he has agreed to perform there. All we are asking for is an update about European tour dates, is that so hard? I very much doubt HSHQ even reads any of the replies anyway. My disappointment and anger against H is growing daily.”
From AngieV on the home page: “I really don’t believe the H we knew is coming back. With every decision he makes, I lose more hope. Everything he does and the precious little he actually says, tells us that he doesn’t care. Just buy my stuff. If you’re extremely successful and there are no financial or career repercussions for your bad behavior, what can possibly motivate you to change? Even if he breaks up with cockburn, that doesn’t change what he has become and how he is treating fans. He’s so famous, bankable, and comes with a guaranteed fan base of millions, I don’t see what would inspire him or convict his conscience. He just doesn’t care.”
Is Harry even….let’s not say Harry….is his management team even reading these tweets or just carrying on with their motto “just ignore it!?” Does Harry even own a mobile?? Can’t he see these reactions from his fans? Is he really that blind or has he really gone far off from the reservation? I hope more tweets like these emerge. The fans are speaking up against the campaign Harry has started for himself. Atleast give the people a refund. He’s been holding on to that for 3 years!! If Niall can do it,so can he. If he can travel to Italy with that Banshee,advertise his merch and do pap walks,so why can’t he do the tour as well?? If he can’t,then give the people their hard earned money back which they spent on you to see your lazy a** perform!! Again AD love the research you’ve done on this!!! Keep it up!! 👍
