One Direction star Harry Styles has praises his ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift's songwriting abilities saying that if there must be songs written about him, he's glad they're good.

The star said when asked about Swift during a live streaming event with his bandmates yesterday, November 9, "I think we always say that we always write from personal experiences.

"So it would be hypocritical of us to be like 'you can't write songs'. And she's really good, they're great songs, so I'm lucky in that sense."

It has been speculated by fans of Swift and Styles online that her tracks I Knew You Were Trouble and Out Of The Woods are about their relationship.
