So what does that mean for the fan girls who have always been in a younger following bracket for Styles? When asked about the pressures of entering into an older demographic, the singer gets quite passionate about the subject and defends his beloved young fans.
“Who's to say that young girls who like pop music -- short for popular, right? -- have worse musical taste than a 30-year-old hipster guy,” Styles questioned. “That's not up to you to say. Music is something that's always changing. There's no goal posts. Young girls like the Beatles. You gonna tell me they're not serious?”
Always loyal to his fans, Styles continued on his tirade that his young fan base is much more than what people continue to see them.
“How can you say young girls don't get it?” Styles pointed out. “They're our future. Our future doctors, lawyers, mothers, presidents, they kind of keep the world going.”
Although Styles is entering into an older crowd with his new music, his credibility continues to be sought out by the very fans who started this journey with him and he’s totally cool with that. “Teenage-girl fans -- they don't lie. If they like you, they're there. They don't act 'too cool.' They like you, and they tell you. Which is sick."
