Styles, Swift avoid run-in at event

Taylor Swift performed at the NRJ awards

Harry Styles and Taylor Swift avoided an awkward encounter by steering clear of each other at an awards bash in France.

The One Direction singer and the US pop star - who recently split following a brief romance - both attended the NRJ Awards in Cannes, but apparently timed their appearances to make sure they didn't bump into each other and trigger a "media circus".

A source told Us Weekly: "It was very carefully timed so they didn't do the carpet at the same time.

"Taylor didn't do any backstage interviews and didn't use a dressing room - she changed at the hotel because she didn't want to see Harry at any point."

The insider added: "Things were timed to keep them apart and for it to not become a big media circus."

However, although there were no embarrassing encounters, Harry, 18, did have to sit through Taylor's rendition of her hit song We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, which she performed at the ceremony.

The 23-year-old, who often mines her personal life for inspiration for her music, is thought to have penned the track about another of her former flames.

A reference from a powerful friend will help you get into an exclusive group or prestigious society. Your new friends and contacts might eventually be able to give you a helping hand professionally, but that's all in times to come.More
