I can actually understand why Harry would want to use a pseudonym. Everything he touches right now is going to be seen through the ‘boybander’ goggles. Singled out for judgement and automatically discredited because he’s Harry Styles of One Direction. There are so-called music journalists who wouldn’t say something positive about any of the members of 1D and or their music if they wrote the greatest song in history. This way his songs could be judged on their own merit.
