Green Bay Packers fan Harry Styles wins Album of the Year
At the 65th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, February 5, noted Green Bay Packers fan and English pop superstar Harry Styles was awarded the Grammy for Album of the Year.
Styles’ third solo studio album, “Harry’s House,” was released on May 20, 2022. For this work, Styles received significant acclaim from both critics and fans alike.
This culminated in the prestigious honor of winning the Grammy for Album of the Year, in addition to Best Pop Vocal Album.
While Harry Styles is best known for his phenomenal work as a solo artist, along with his time as a member of One Direction, Styles is in fact a longtime Packers fan.
Harry Styles Packers fan origin story
The megastar pop singer and actor admitted in a 2020 interview with NPR that he has a tattoo of the Packers logo on his left upper arm. Styles told the story of how he got a “G” logo on the inside of his arm, right above the elbow, after losing a wager with his friends.
"“We said, ‘If they win the game, then I’ll get a Packers tattoo. And if they don’t, I won’t.’ So, I think this was maybe 2012, maybe 2013, and I only had time the day before to go and get the tattoo. So I thought, ‘Oh, I’ll just get it because they’re going to win.’ So I got the tattoo, and then they lost. So yeah, now I have a Green Bay Packers tattoo.'”"
Harry Styles, a 29-year-old who was born in Redditch, England, then explained how he acquired his Packers fandom through a friend, who is from Wisconsin, that he met in Los Angeles when he first moved there.
He went on to detail about his formative experiences of watching some of their games and even playing games of “Madden” together. Styles, naturally, said he would always play as the Green Bay Packers.
Styles then added that he was attracted to the team through their community-oriented values, as the Packers are the only NFL team that is publicly owned by the fans. Lastly, Styles stated how this fandom was a seamless fit for him with his love of cheese.
Harry Styles to rep the Packers on his tour?
As Styles’ international “Love On Tour” continues through mid-July of this year, hopefully Styles takes some opportunity to publicly show off his Packers love to a global audience.
Meanwhile, with Green Bay coming off a disappointing 2022 season, Styles would hope that they find ways to improve their team and compete for a title next season.
In an ideal world, Styles will be celebrating more success at next year’s Grammy Awards as he awaits to cheer on his beloved team in the upcoming Super Bowl.
