Harry Styles has admitted his reputation as a womanizer "can get annoying" because he says it gives girls the wrong impression about him as a person.
The One Direction heart throb is worried his high-profile love life runs the risk of giving potential girlfriends the wrong impression and insisted his romances aren't his biggest focus.
He said: "The only time [the interest] can get annoying is when you like someone but they're thinking, 'But I've seen him with all of these others'.
"It's OK. I get it. It's not something I complain about. if I looked at everything going on in my life and chose to focus on that then my priorities are in the wrong place."
Although he understands the speculation, the 'Best Song Ever' hitmaker admitted he is concerned with getting a reputation and doesn't want people to think he's a "d***head".
He told The Sun newspaper's Fabulous magazine: "Yeah. I don't want to be seen as a d***head.
"I don't worry about my mum because she gets it and she knows what I'm like. But I don't want other people to think I'm an arsehole."
Harry also tried to lay some of the rumours to rest by explaining his busy schedule with the band leaves him little time for romance.
He added: "I'm single at the moment and I haven't been mingling that much, either. Touring is so hard and it's hard to get to know someone in a day."
