Real men, as D.H. Lawrence and Oliver Reed knew well, have no problem sitting around the house in the nude with their mates.
It don’t mean a thing other than, we’re chilling.
And if you have a problem with that well then, hey, better take a look at yourself, bro.
But still, the parents of tweeny 1D fans worldwide won't know quite what to make of this.
For Harry Styles’s cousin last night Instagrammed out a picture of the big-haired and adorably dopey boy band leader watching a boxing match on the telly with his mates and giving a Lennon-esque Peace sign—while in the Lennon-esque nude.
The picture features a strategically placed hand obscuring Mr. Styles’s private parts—but his growing collection of tattoos is well showcased. He looks a bit like B̶r̶a̶d̶ ̶P̶i̶t̶t̶ Guy Pearce in Memento at this stage.
Harry is the only one naked—he appears to be wearing nothing but a red headscarf.
The band are currently on home turf—hence the suburban setting for this surprisingly unsaucy snap—doing a series of live shows.
Of course, Harry might, like Tom Ford, just like hanging out in the altogether, or the nude photo may be an attempt to change the direction of the 1D conversation away from smoking marijuana and using offensive racial epithets.
One Direction’s Liam Payne has said the group has ‘a lot of growing up to do”, following his bandmates’ apparent use of illegal drugs.
After a video of Louis Tomlinson, 22, and Zayn Malik, 21, smoking a joint in Peru emerged, Payne tweeted: “I love my boys and maybe things have gone a little sideways I apologise for that.”
Just two weeks ago, the band was revealed to have been the richest boy band in music history, with a combined wealth of £70 million. The five members of One Direction were revealed in The Sunday Times to have individual fortunes of £14 million each ($23 million), occupying positions four to eight in the paper’s list of the richest British musicians under 30 years old.
