By now, you've probably seen the photos of One Direction's Harry Styles celebrating his 19th birthday by getting a lap dance from a stripper in a London club. The unapologetic singer now has commented on the night, calling it "great," but complaining that the girl wasn't allowed to get naked for him.
Speaking to the British paper The Sun, Harry says that he was at the club with his 1D band mate Niall Horan and his pal Nick Grimshaw, a British deejay. "Grimmy said I had to sit there because he was bringing a cake," Harry tells the paper, referring to Grimshaw. "He started telling everyone to be quiet but I could see the cake in the kitchen and the candles weren’t lit, so I was like, ‘What’s going on?’"
He added, "Then Grimmy said, ‘Someone in here is underage’ and I saw a police hat bobbing through the crowd. I was like, ‘Oh no!’" But it turned out to be the stripper, who was dressed as a sexy policewoman. Sadly, the routine couldn't get really down and dirty, as Harry tells The Sun.
"She stripped down to her underwear but unfortunately there was a no-nudity policy in the bar," he explains. But even without the nudity, there was an awkward moment: Harry reveals, "A guy in our group came up and said, ‘I went to college with her!’”
Overall, Harry says of the evening, "I was in stitches, it was really funny. We had a great night." But now, he and 1D have to get down to business: their world tour kicks off in a couple of weeks.
"We have to knuckle down and work hard, make sure we get everything ready so it’s a good show," says Harry. "I want to focus on that, not chasing girls.”
