Harry Styles says Billie Eilish “broke the spell” of him feeling lost as a young artist

Harry Styles has opened up about transitioning from a teen star in a boyband into a career musician on his own path, explaining that he found solace in seeing the way Billie Eilish approached her own sudden rise to pop stardom.Ahead of his hotly anticipated third album, ‘Harry’s House’, landing on Friday (May 20), Styles sat down with Zane Lowe for a 78-minute chat about the album’s inception, touring, Style’s creative process and his maturation as both an artist and a person away from the spotlight. Eilish came up towards the end of the interview, when Styles spoke candidly about how his artistry now compares to the way he approached it in the early days of One Direction’s split.He explained: “I definitely had a really big moment, I think, when Billie Eilish kind of first blew up.

I think being in the band, I’d always felt like … it was fun and exciting because we were young. And I had a moment, seeing her do this at such a young age, where I felt like, ‘I’m not that young anymore.’ “For a while, it was like, ‘How do you play that game, of like, remaining exciting?’ And I just had a moment where I felt like, ‘OK, we’re not the same thing.’ And in the same vein of, like, ‘You’re not always going to be the kind of young thing,’ I was like, ‘OK, I would really like to think about who I would like to be as a musician.’”Styles went on to say that although he and Eilish had “[run] into each other a couple of times” over the last few years, he’s not told her personally about how she inspires him.

Dani Dyer's footballer boyfriend Jarrod Bowen 'to pop the question this summer'
Love Island star Dani Dyer is set to become engaged as her boyfriend Jarrod Bowen has reportedly splashed out on a ring.The mum-of-one, 25, confirmed her romance with the also 25-year-old West Ham footballer in October.Following rumours that the pair are soon planning to walk down the aisle, it's thought Jarrod has asked his beau's famous father Danny Dyer for her hand in marriage.The football star currently plays in the Premier League, which is due to end this month, leaving him with "time off" to spend with Dani.A source told The Sun: "The pair have lots planned for the summer, but Dani doesn’t know about one very special thing he has in mind."They are so loved up and everyone in the family is a big fan of Jarrod – particularly dad Danny."Jarrod and Danny are really close and he’s already asked him if he can marry her."It's the happy ending Dani deserves and everyone is over the moon."The rumoured engagement plans follow Dani hinting at tying the knot with Jarrod several times previously.Earlier this month, the reality star teased that marriage was on the cards as she shared a loved-up snap of herself with Jarrod.She captioned the image: "You and me forever," which sparked engagement claims amongst fans.Dani's relationship has also received praise from her dad and EastEnders star, Danny.Speaking on the Sorted with the Dyers podcast earlier this year, the Mean Machine actor, 44, confessed to being "more in love" with Jarrod than Dani.

Ed Sheeran helped Tom Parker with medical bills during brain cancer treatment
Ed Sheeran helped to pay for some of the medical treatment that late Wanted star Tom Parker received during his time battling brain cancer.Parker told fans in October, 2020 that he had been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour, and after 18 months of fighting the disease, he died this past March.“It is with the heaviest of hearts that we confirm Tom passed away peacefully earlier today with all of his family by his side,” the singer’s wife, Kelsey, wrote in a post on her Instagram page.In his posthumous autobiography, Hope, which is due to be released on May 26, Parker reveals that Sheeran helped pay for some of his medical bills while undergoing treatment for the cancer.“Pretty much from the moment I was diagnosed, Ed Sheeran reached out to me with an offer to do anything he could to help,” Parker writes in excerpts from the book which were published by The Sun today (May 14).Parker goes on to call Sheeran “a very special man” and adds that the ‘Shape Of You’ hitmaker will “probably be mad” that he’s revealing how he “helped out” with his medical bills when Parker was seeking other treatment options alongside private immunotherapy.“He didn’t need to do any of that, but my wife Kelsey and I are so grateful to him for his support. It meant the world,” Parker writes in his upcoming book.At the time of Parker’s passing, Sheeran paid tribute on Instagram writing: “So sad to hear of Tom’s passing.

Corrie’s Fiz ‘in danger’ as fans twig harrowing Pat Phelan link to Phill’s new house
Coronation Street's Fiz Stape could be in more danger than she has been since marrying serial killer John Stape, at least where fans are concerned.Worried viewers are now convinced they’ve spotted a harrowing twist about the house Fiz recently moved into with her new beau Phill, after separating from fiancé Tyrone Dobbs.But Fiz might soon be wishing she’d stayed with Tyrone after all despite his affair with Alina Pop, because fans now think the house she’s moved into was owned by the notorious murderer Pat Phelan.Even creepier, they think it’s the same location Pat held Andy Carver hostage for months before finally killing him - adding him to a long list of victims including Michael Rodwell, Luke Britton and Vinny Ashford.Fans were stunned at the time when Andy - who was presumed dead already - showed up with a full beard, held hostage in a grotty basement with nothing but a mattress and chains securing him to the wall to keep him company.Despite numerous escape attempts, Pat finally killed him before he could get away.Taking to Facebook, fans have predicted danger for Fiz - just days after Phill’s connection to another infamous serial killer, John Stape, was confirmed by spoilers.One of Phill’s pals is the very lawyer who prosecuted Fiz when she was accused of conspiracy to murder - though she was eventually freed after an appeal.An eagle-eyed fan said on Facebook: “Corrie - Fiz’s house, was that the house Phelan was working on and where he kept Andy tied up and as a hostage?”Another theorised: “I thought it was the same house as John Stape held Rosie Webster hostage - plus Rosie is coming back!”Someone else couldn’t help joking: “Maybe it’s their go to house for hostage situations, doesn’t bode well for Fiz!”“You know,
