Rumor Has It
Harry Styles and One Direction bandmates turn down lucrative condom deal
Harry Styles and his One Direction buddies are taking a pass on a deal that would pay them bookoo bucks to be the "face of safe sex" in the U.S.
The British boy banders are happy to promote condom use, but feel their fan base is so young, it would not be an appropriate marketing strategy.
A source close to the band reportedly tells Ireland's Daily Star, "They are promoting dolls and games, so that's the age group who are buying."
While Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, and Harry are all of age, it's a good guess that most of their fans are not.
While Harry has been outspoken about his own condom use, Liam has told OK! magazine he shies away from the sexual association. "I wouldn't like to endorse condoms because of the jokes that would be made," Liam says.
