Pop star Taylor Swift has revealed yet another breakup. This time, she used a British accent at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards during her performance of “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” The accent was seen by some as a snub to her British ex- boyfriend Harry Styles of pop boy band, One Direction. Styles has remained silent until now about the performance that purportedly mocked him.
In an interview with London’s Capital FM on February 17, Styles had kind words for his ex and her performance at the Grammys. “She’s a great performer and she always performs great. She’s always good on the stage. She’s been doing it a long time. She knows what she’s doing on stage. It was just another good Taylor Swift performance. It was good.”

Styles also talked about the attention he received from the way Swift handled their breakup.
“I understand why people would wanna know stuff like that, I get it. If someone does stuff like that then I wanna know about it, too. I guess it just kind of…it is what it is I guess.”
Styles told the London radio station that he is “good,” and he appears to be in high spirits. Us Weekly reports that he and a friend were partying on Valentine’s Day with co-eds at Leeds University. The after party continued at Mezz club where a local told Us Weekly that he happily posed for photos.
