Harry Styles nominated for Villain of the Year at NME Awards!
There’s no doubt some One Direction fans will be left with a bad taste in their mouths this week, as it has been announced that Harry Styles is up for Villain of the Year at the ‘NME Awards’!
The 1D heartthrob whose brief relationship with pop princess Taylor Swift recently came to an end, has been nominated in the category alongside rapper Azealia Banks, K-Pop King Psy, dubstep producer Skrillex, Fred Macpherson from Spector and British Prime Minister David Cameron.
But the NME Awards aren’t just about the negative nods, with most of the categories celebrating the entertainment industry’s most talented folk.
Aussie band Tame Impala has scored the highest number of nominations alongside The Rolling Stones, M.I.A and Haim, nabbing nods for Best Album, Best International Band, Best Track for ‘Elephant’ and Best Music Video for ‘Feels Like We Only Go Backwards.’
“The NME Awards is the highlight of the music calendar and the most Rock’n’roll party of the year, so it’s incredibly exciting to see such a wide range of artists nominated this time around,” said NME editor Mike Williams in a statement.
“Rightly so, all the early plaudits will go to Haim, Tame Impala, MIA and the legendary Rolling Stones who lead the way with four nominations each, but it's testament to the exquisite taste of the NME audience that artists as wide ranged as Frank Ocean, Jake Bugg, Pussy Riot and David Bowie are recognised too.
“To say it's shaping up to be a classic is a huge understatement!” Williams continued.
The ‘NME Awards’ are set to take place in London on February 27.
