The Grammys 2021 was a big night for Harry Styles. The singer did not only open the ceremony with his performance, but also picked up his first ever Grammy, for Best Pop Solo Performance for “Watermelon Sugar”.
While Olivia Wilde couldn’t make it to the show and celebrate beau Harry Styles’ victory in person, she made sure to offer her support via social media. That too in the most interesting and discrete way!
A few hours after Styles’ win, the actress-director took to her Instagram Stories and shared a photo of Paul McCartney biting into a slice of watermelon.
Fans were quick to speculate that the photo of the Beatles singer was an homage to Harry Styles’ “Watermelon Sugar”.
That’s not it, Olivia also paid tribute to Harry’s killer performance as she posted a photo of another rock and roll legend, Mick Jagger, on her Stories.
She shared a post of Mick Jagger performing on stage, wearing a leather jacket, scarf and no shirt. Harry donned a similar outfit at the Grammys and that this was a reference to his performance was a no brainer.
Besides winning big, Harry also created a major fashion moment with his feather boa, which fans just couldn’t get enough of. The “Sign Of The Times” singer truly was a star that evening.
Not just Olivia Wilde, Liam Payne also congratulated Harry Styles on Grammy win
Liam Payne also took to Instagram Stories to congratulate his “brother” Harry Styles on the massive win. The “Strip That Down” singer shared a meme of the former boy band, writing, “this did make me chuckle”.
“Congrats @hshq on your Grammy win,” Payne added under the meme. “What a huge moment, proud to be your brother.”
Liam Payne and Harry Styles have remained friends since the boy band split in 2015. The meme was seemingly a reference to how One Direction had never been nominated for a Grammy for any of their five albums.
In December, Styles opened up to Variety about being in the group and how everyone going their own way was a “next step in evolution.”
“When you look at the history of people coming out of bands and starting solo careers, they feel this need to apologize for being in the band. ‘Don’t worry, everyone, that wasn’t me! Now I get to do what I really want to do,’ he said.
“But we loved being in the band,” he added. “I think there’s a wont to pit people against each other. And I think it’s never been about that for us. It’s about a next step in evolution. The fact that we’ve all achieved different things outside of the band says a lot about how hard we worked in it.”
