Prior to his appearance at the BRIT Awards 2020 earlier this month, Harry Styles was reportedly held at knifepoint during a robbery in London. The musician and actor was robbed during a visit to Hampstead in London on Valentine’s Day, and thankfully he walked out of the situation unharmed. During an appearance on TODAY, Styles made his first public statement on the situation.
Styles was on the show to announce two Halloween shows at Madison Square Garden, but he also answered a question about the robbery. “I’m okay,” he simply replied when asked, before adding with a smile, “Thanks for asking.” Initial reports indicated that he “played it pretty cool” during the incident, “keeping himself and the guy calm and getting the situation over with.”
In the interview on TODAY, he also opened up about his appreciation for Lizzo. “I think she’s a great artist,” he added. “I think she’s someone who is just herself, and she makes amazing music and it’s feel good and I think that’s what a lot of people need right now.” When it comes to collaboration, he said it’s a “maybe.”
In addition to his fancy dress party shows on Oct. 30 and Oct. 31, Styles is expected to release the Dave Meyers-directed video for “Falling” this week.
