Harry Styles poses shirtless on the Rolling Stone cover and fans are getting hot and bothered

There's no doubt that Harry Styles has plenty of fans out there who admire his good looks. After all, you don't get to be a superstar and a member of one direction without being something of a heartthrob, but Harry is probably one of the most lusted-after celebs of all time.

Not only that, but his physical appearance is accentuated by a peerless sense of style and coordination. He really knows how to dress. But this week it was a picture of him in a significant state of undress that whipped social media users up into a frenzy and left them hot under the collar.

The thirst trap first reared its head on Twitter, when the music and general pop culture magazine Rolling Stone posted a picture from the cover of its latest issue, in which Harry was very much prominent. Not only that, but Mr Styles was also shirtless, which left a lot of commentators pretty dang hot and bothered. The issue is due to be released on September 3, and it's clear that plenty of his fans are absolutely clamouring to read a copy.

In a previous interview with the magazine back in 2017, Styles commented on his decision to leave the band that made him a household name and go solo, stating: "I wanted to step up. There were songs I wanted to write and record, and not just have it be ‘Here’s a demo I wrote.’ Every decision I’ve made since I was 16 was made in a democracy. I felt like it was time to make a decision about the future."

He added: "I like to separate my personal life and work. It helps, I think, for me to compartmentalize. It’s not about trying to make my career longer like I’m trying to be this ‘mysterious character,’ because I’m not. When I go home, I feel like the same person I was at school. You can’t expect to keep that if you show everything. "

This isn't the only bit of Harry-related news we've reported on lately. In fact, up until recently, Styles was rumoured to be playing the part of Prince Eric in the Disney live-action remake of The Little Mermaid.
