Harry Styles only had nice things to say about ex Taylor Swift while speaking to Howard Stern on Monday.
While many of Swift's exes have spoken out about her using her romantic life for songwriting fodder, Mr. Styles said he was totally flattered by inspiring his former girlfriend's 'great' songwriting.
Asked how he felt about exes writing songs about him, he told Howard: 'I think about what it means to me to write a song about somebody else and for somebody else to do that, it’s like flattering.'

He went on, telling the shock jock: 'Even if the song isn’t that flattering, you still spent time on it and ultimately, using Taylor as an example, she’s a great songwriter. So at least they’re good songs.'
Harry continued: 'The only time you really think, "is this song too personal?" Is if you think about, "is this going to be really annoying for the other person?" Because I do [care].'
Harry and Taylor were linked from 2012 to 2013. He is largely believed to be the inspiration for her tracks Style and Out Of The Woods, both off of the album 1989.
