Taylor Swift Mocks Harry Styles: One Direction Member Told Not To Retaliate Against Grammys Diss (REPORT)

Taylor Swift openly mocked her ex-boyfriend Harry Styles at the 2013 Grammy Awards on Sunday night, but the One Direction member is being urged to prove he's more mature than the pop star and take the high road.

RadarOnline reports that the 19-year-old's bandmates have warned him that Swift was just trying to get him riled up, and that he shouldn't take her bait.

Swift dissed Styles in the middle of her Grammys performance by adding a British accent when she said, "So he calls me up and he's like, 'I still love you,' and I'm like, 'I'm sorry, I'm busy opening up the Grammys.'"

"The lads have told Harry to forget about retaliating, because it’s just not worth it,” a source close to the band told RadarOnline. “They’ve all advised him to be the bigger person and not to wash his dirty laundry in public – it’s just tacky and embarrassing."

It doesn't take much to prove you're more mature than Swift, and if Styles can keep his mouth shut he'll have more than proved he's not the one with sour grapes.

“It’s only Taylor now that seems to clinging on to their failed relationship, and Harry has been told to keep his thoughts private,” the source told the website.

The couple broke off their short-lived romance after a "blowup" fight while on vacation in the British Virgin Islands in early January, but Swift hasn't been able to let things go.

According to reports, Styles lived up to his reputation as a player and allegedly cheated on Swift, which has left the songstress unhappy, to say the least.
