Today is Harry Styles' 22nd birthday, and just like any normal would do on his or her 22nd birthday, Styles celebrated by quoting Taylor Swift's jam "22." Specifically, he jotted down the line "I don't know about you, but I'm feeling 22" on Twitter and disseminated it to his 27.1 million followers. But unlike most normals, Harry Styles once dated Taylor Swift, and even inspired at least three of her songs on 1989. That leads to a very important question, Is that even chill?
For those of us who have never dated a person who wrote a song that's now synonymous with an entire year of life, it's hard to say. According to Harry, it's totally chill. For his fans, who have been busy responding entirely in all-caps, less so.
I don't know about you, but I'm feeling 22.— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) February 1, 2016
As of press time, Taylor Swift has yet to confirm whether it is in fact chill or not by tossing it a fave.
