One Direction's Harry Styles has admitted his reputation as a womaniser ''can get annoying'' because he says it gives girls the wrong impression about him as a person.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, the Best Song Ever hitmaker said: ''The only time [the interest] can get annoying is when you like someone but they're thinking, 'But I've seen him with all of these others'.

''It's OK. I get it. It's not something I complain about. if I looked at everything going on in my life and chose to focus on that then my priorities are in the wrong place.''

He added: ''Yeah. I don't want to be seen as a ********.

''I don't worry about my mum because she gets it and she knows what I'm like. But I don't want other people to think I'm an ********.''

Styles further explained that he is single, but hasn't been mingling as of late, adding: ''I'm single at the moment and I haven't been mingling that much, either. Touring is so hard and it's hard to get to know someone in a day.''
