Harry Styles named NME’s ‘Villain of the Year’

Harry Styles

Maybe it’s because I grew up on Saturday morning cartoons, but I generally classify villains as anyone who can shoot lightning out of their fingers or can break Batman’s back. But NME just awarded One Direction star Harry Styles with the title of “Villain of the Year” so who knows? Maybe villains today just need to look like weird muppet babies and sing mediocre pop songs.

Did his breakup with country superstar Taylor Swift have something to do with the “Villain” win? “I don’t think I’ve done anything that bad, have I? I wouldn’t say villain,” Styles told the U.K.’s Metro after first being nominated. Nominations for the “Villain” award were selected following a reader vote, according to NME. The Villain of the Year award wasn’t the only blow to Styles’ ego on Wednesday. One Direction also managed to score the Worst Band of the Year award as well, MTV News notes.

Meanwhile, over at the Justice League …

Superman: Hey everyone, the only real superhero in this crap group is back!
Batman: Ass …
Wonder Woman: So, how’d it go?
Superman: I found Earth’s mightiest Villain, some kid named Harry Styles!
Green Lantern: Wait, a kid? Did he at least have any super powers?
Superman: He can control millions of stupid teenage girls using bland pop songs.
Batman: I don’t think he’s a Villain. I think they were just joking. What did you do to him anyway?
Superman: I threw a shoe at his junk.
Wonder Woman: You’re an asshole, Superman.
