Harry Styles finds only "good" things when he Googles himself.

The One Direction star has hordes of female fans and has been linked to the likes of Taylor Swift and Kendall Jenner. There's constant speculation about his love life, but the 20-year-old doesn't mind seeing what's written about him.

"I've done it once. It was good though," he grinned to British Very magazine when asked if he Googles himself.

"I Google [the band]. If there's been something in a paper, I'll Google it to look at the article online."

It's been a crazy time for Harry and his bandmates Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson since appearing on The X Factor UK in 2010. They're currently on their Where We Are Tour and have also announced a string of show dates in Australia and Asia for next year.

Harry revealed what his sudden rise to mega stardom has taught him.

"You have to think about people, but you have to look after yourself, too, otherwise you'd drive yourself crazy because you can't please everyone," he mused. "It doesn't work. There needs to be a point where you step back and do something for yourself. I've decided not to let other people's opinions change what I think."

The curly-haired star added that he feels lucky to be doing something he enjoys and that he's glad people "appreciate" his music.

"We feel so lucky to have such an amazing opportunity," he smiled.
