However, Harry fans have slammed the singer saying it’s been done for publicity to promote her new single 'Harry' and the tattoo is fake. But Kelsy has hit back at critics saying: “It’s completely unrelated”.
In a new interview the singer has revealed the real reason behind the tat, saying: “I wear my heart on my cheek”
In the discussion with The Edge Afternoon Show, she emphasised she respected Harry and is a big fan of what he’s done for rock ‘n’ roll.
“I'm a big fan of Harry and I'm not afraid to express it and I honestly don't know how to do anything half-a**ed,” she confessed.

“As a fellow musician, I really respect what he’s doing for rock ‘n’ roll. I’m a female in the modern day movement of rock ‘n’ roll and he’s exposed the kids to sounds they might have not otherwise heard.” She continued.
“Because he came from the pop world and did a rock ‘n’ roll album, it’s opened doors for people like me. I really respect what he’s doing and love what he’s doing – and he’s nice to look at.”
However, Kelsy would not reveal whether the man himself had reached out to her privately.
