Harry Styles should treat Taylor Swift nicely, say locals from her hometown

London, Dec. 9 (ANI): One Direction's Harry Styles, who is dating Taylor Swift after hooking up with her at an 'X Factor' show last month, has been advised to treat her nicely by locals from the country singer's hometown of Hendersonville.

The loved-up singers have become one of the hottest couples in showbiz - and already have a Brangelina-style nickname - Haylor.

"My advice is for Harry to treat her nice. Taylor means a heck of a lot to this town and of course, everyone is very protective of her," the Sun quoted Local councillor Scott Sprouse as saying.

"She is a big star, a local girl and a role model to so many in Hendersonville. No one wants to see her hurt," he said.

His view is echoed by many others in the affluent, gun-loving town in the middle of rural Tennessee, where Swift's parents live.

A salesman at the popular firearms store Guns And Leather said: "Taylor deserves to be treated well and not messed around.

"She's our hometown girl and we don't want some hairy boyband singer messing with her," he said.

Joni Worsham, head teacher at Hendersonville High School, where Taylor studied for two years, said: "Taylor has a special place in the heart of the people in Hendersonville.

"She is very well respected and loved, and people only want the best for her.

"They would not want to see her hurt in any way by a relationship that went wrong," she said. (ANI)
