A rep for One Direction was recently forced to shoot down rumors that Harry Styles was secretly planning a solo career and was already working on material: now the singer has done the same himself.
Responding to a tweet from a fan that asked, "is it true that you are thinking of going solo?" Harry tweeted, "No not at all, I missed a recording session that's why I was in the studio in LA catching up .x."
A British tabloid claimed Harry was in the studio in Hollywood, California, as recently as last week, recording several songs for a solo effort, but a rep told another tabloid, "Harry is not recording solo material. All of the band are working on tracks for their third album. Harry is putting together some ideas for the record. The boys sometimes work up ideas separately as well as working together, as they did last year."
In other Harry news, add Ke$ha's name to the endless list of ladies who are swooning over him. Speaking to Britain's Now magazine, Ke$ha admits, "I'm kind of a sucker for [British guys]. It's the accent. Harry Styles is pretty cute -- he looks like a young Mick Jagger." Ke$ha, of course, famously name-checked the iconic Rolling Stones frontman in her #1 hit "Tik Tok."
