Harry Styles, J Balvin and More: Watch the Variety Hitmakers Program

At the end of a year that was far from ordinary, Variety‘s Hitmakers program brought together some of music’s biggest stars to virtually celebrate their accomplishments.

Harry Styles was named Hitmaker of the Year, and was presented the award by comedian Nick Kroll, who co-stars with him in the upcoming film “Don’t Worry Darling.”

“I have gotten to know Harry over the last couple months making the film ‘Don’t Worry Darling,’ and I’ve learned that Harry is not only an incredible musician and a very, very good actor, but he’s a genuinely good dude,” Kroll said. “He brings coffee and donuts to meetings every morning and sent me flowers on my wedding night. And now, he’s in a throuple with me and my new wife! He’s a very generous lover, and folks, he is a manly man if I’ve ever met one.”

Styles humbly accepted the award, calling it

Harry Styles Shares A Behind-The-Scenes Look At His ‘Golden’ Video

About a year ago, “Golden” opened Harry Styles’ latest album, Fine Line. Many months later, the track is his latest single, as he dropped a video for it in October. Now he has given fans who want more just that by releasing a behind-the-scenes clip about the making of the video.

It shows typical on-set sort of things, like Styles talking with crew members, getting ready to shoot, alternate angles of scenes that appear in the finish product, and Styles just enjoying the process of making the picturesque visual.

Around a year ago, Styles gave Apple Music’s Zane Lowe a behind-the-scenes look at how the song was written, saying of that day:

“We were all sat in the kitchen at [Rick Rubin’s recording studio] Shangri-La, having dinner, and we played it on one guitar while everyone sang around the table. It just felt really good. Part of the thing

Harry Styles Says One Direction Don’t Compare Themselves to Each Other

Just because Harry Styles is enjoying a thriving solo career, what with the massive success of his most recent album, Fine Line, and his appearance on the cover of Vogue, doesn’t mean he doesn’t look back on his time as part of One Direction fondly — and he wants to make sure everyone knows that the band does not embarrass him.

Harry snagged the cover of Variety, where he was named Hitmaker of the Year, and opened up about how 1D impacted his solo journey and that of his bandmates, who have all had solo success of their own since Zayn Malik’s departure and 1D’s hiatus. 

“When you look at the history of people coming out of bands and starting solo careers, they feel this need to apologize for being in the band. ‘Don’t worry, everyone, that wasn’t me! Now I get to do what I really want

Harry Styles, seen here at The BRIT Awards 2020 at The O2 Arena on February 18, 2020 in London, has fond memories of his One Direction days.

“When you look at the history of people coming out of bands and starting solo careers, they feel this need to apologize for being in the band. ‘Don’t worry, everyone, that wasn’t me! Now I get to do what I really want to do.’ But we loved being in the band,” the “Watermelon Sugar” singer said in an interview with Variety.

He added that though some may have the general desire to “pit people against each other,” he prefers expressions of gratitude.

“It’s about a next step in

Harry Styles mocks conservative political pundit over Vogue cover criticism

Pop superstar Harry Styles has brushed off criticism of his gender-defying Vogue magazine cover by mocking a comment made by conservative political pundit Candace Owens.

The Watermelon Sugar hitmaker made history last month (November 2020) by becoming the first male to grace the front of the fashion bible solo, but his decision to embrace his feminine side by posing in a Gucci ball gown for the groundbreaking cover drew harsh remarks from some critics, including Owens, who demanded, “Bring back manly men.”

On Wednesday (December 2, 2020), Styles poked fun at the uproar on Instagram by sharing a picture of himself wearing a powder blue suit with a ruffled shirt while eating a banana, from his new interview with Variety, and used Owens’ same words as his caption.

He also addressed the backlash in the magazine itself, insisting he is really enjoying experimenting with gender-fluid fashion.

Harry Styles’s New Movie Look Has Don Draper Shaking

Harry Styles can pull off just about any look, his epic collection of dandy suits and the Gucci dress he sports on the cover of Vogue this month being two prime examples. The singer has proven that he is a true fashion chameleon, and his wardrobe choices just keep getting better and better. For his latest vibe, he’s channelling the 1950s for a movie role. 

Styles is currently shooting his new film, Don’t Worry Darling, in Palm Springs, California. It’s a thriller centered on an “unhappy housewife,” played by Florence Pugh, during the era (a mysterious plot, I know). Yesterday, we got a first glimpse at Styles’s character in the movie—and more specifically, his character’s sharp, retro style. It serves us Manhattan-drinking, briefcase-carrying, ’50s husband realness. Mad Men’s Don Draper is shaking! Let’s take a closer look, shall we?

It’s a decidedly more clean-cut look than

Harry Styles Claps Back at Candace Owens Over His ‘Vogue’ Cover

Treat people with kindness! Harry Styles clapped back at Candace Owens after the conservative author criticized him for wearing a dress on his historic Vogue cover.

“Bring back manly men,” the Grammy nominee, 26, wrote via Instagram on Wednesday, December 2, alongside a photo of him eating a banana in a frilly pale blue suit.

Styles also discussed the drama in Variety’s Hitmakers issue, which was published on Wednesday and named him Hitmaker of the Year.

“To not wear [something] because it’s females’ clothing, you shut out a whole world of great clothes,” he said. “And I think what’s exciting about right now is you can wear what you like. It doesn’t have to be X or Y. Those lines are becoming more and more blurred.”

The “Watermelon Sugar” singer’s response came weeks after he became the first-ever man to

Harry Styles: Hitmaker of the Year Reflects on Isolation and His Muses

“We’ll dance again,” Harry Styles coos, the Los Angeles sunshine peeking through his pandemic-shaggy hair just so. The singer, songwriter and actor — beloved and critically acclaimed thanks to his life-affirming year-old album, “Fine Line” — is lamenting that his Variety Hitmaker of the Year cover conversation has to be conducted over Zoom rather than in person. Even via videoconference, the Brit is effortlessly charming, as anyone who’s come within earshot of him would attest, but it quickly becomes clear that beneath that genial smile is a well-honed media strategy.

To wit: In an interview that appears a few days later announcing his investment in a new arena in his native Manchester (more on that in a bit), he repeats the refrain — “There will be a time we dance again”— referencing a much-needed return to live music and the promise of some 4,000 jobs for residents.

Nick Kroll got some helpful direction from Harry Styles on popping the question

With the fourth season of his Emmy-winning, so-filthy-its-brilliant animated series Big Mouth hitting Netflix this Friday, co-creator and co-star Nick Kroll did the socially distanced late-night rounds with Jimmy Fallon on Monday’s Tonight Show. Showing a clip from the upcoming season’s continuing hormonal, stickily autobiographical misadventures of the show’s eminently relatable middle school misfits, Kroll explained that its season-opening summer camp setting drew on some harsh realities from his time at a disturbingly similar Maine sleepaway destination. Such as having your at-home best friend (John Mulaney’s Andrew) and your camp best friend (played by guest star Seth Rogen) decide they like hanging out with each other more than with you. Noting that Rogen (whose real-life best friend and writing partner is Evan Goldberg) and Kroll (real-life best friend and writing partner, Adam Goldberg), plays a gruff-voiced kid named Seth Goldberg in the show, Kroll cited The Bible (citation needed)
