Take a look at Harry Styles' car! Boy band One Direction is apparently the next big thing in music (or maybe it's the current big thing?), and success is sitting well with at least one member of the band – singer Harry Styles was recently seen cruising around Los Angeles in a brand new Ferrari California convertible, which has a reported base price of around $200,000.
Harry Styles' car, the Ferrari California is a popular car of choice among sports car enthusiasts, and at least one fellow celebrity from the world of popular music – rapper Flo Rida also purchased one recently. However, in Flo's case, the car was just another addition to an impressive and growing collection of cars, whereas in Styles' case it's probably the first.
And it may be the last, if former member of N*Sync Lance Bass knows what he's talking about. In a recent interview, Bass offered some pointed advice to his spiritual boy band descendant: "Save your money." Bass was told about the photographs of Styles' driving around in a more than $200,000 car and his response that it is a "terrible investment" was almost immediate.
He may have a point – One Direction, the band that counts Harry Styles as one of its members, has only released one album so far, and as anyone who's paid attention to pop culture knows success in the field of teen-oriented pop music can be ephemeral and fleeting. Who knows how much longer One Direction will continue to be boy band success stories? Still, it seems obvious that questions like that one aren't bothering Styles, who's got the money to purchase a sports car with a price tag at almost a quarter of a million dollars. Well, if he can afford it, maybe it's not such a bad idea after all. And maybe he knows something Lance Bass doesn't?
