The 'Little Things' singer says he isn't exactly sure why he has been put up for the award.

One Direction's Harry Styles says he is hoping he wins NME's Villain Of The Year awards later this month (27th February).

The 'Live While We're Young' singer was nominated for the dubious distinction alongside Azealia Banks, PSY, Skrillex, Spector's Fred Macpherson and UK prime minister David Cameron, and says he doesn't mind if the UK publication names him the winner.

"I hope I win," Harry said during a press conference recently. "You've got to take the rough with the smooth.

"But I don't really feel like I've done anything that bad," Harry questioned. "Should be fun!"

The 'Little Things' singers are now preparing for their big performance at the BRIT Awards 2013 later this month, where they are set to perform their new single 'One Way Or Another'.

One Direction have also been nominated for Best British Group at this year's BRITs ceremony, while last month they walked away with the gong for Best International Group at the NRJ Awards in France.
