Louis Tomlinson had a hilarious response to news that a university is offering a Harry Styles course – saying it's not something he'd be interested in.
It was announced this week that Texas State University Honours College is to offer an academic course based on the One Direction star, entitled 'Harry Styles and the Cult of Celebrity: Identity, the Internet, and European Pop Culture'.
Harry's old bandmate Louis was quizzed about it when he was on Australian show The Project.

The interviewer quipped that the module should have been about Louis, but the singer replied: "Yeah, I don't really have any interest in having a course made about me, to be fair!
"But each to their own."
The interviewer joked that it was "a very strange thing not to be interested in".
And Louis shot back: "You sound very interested, to be fair, maybe you should sign up?"
Many fans suggested that Louis should have been asked solely about himself, not Harry, in his interview.
And they were tickled by the singer's response, with one tweeting: "LMAO."
Someone else said their "jaw dropped".
Another viewer tweeted: "Of all things you can ask Louis in an interview, you really have to mention the Harry Styles course? There's so many other things to talk about?!"
One said: "Bringing up the Harry course in Texas. Why? This has absolutely nothing to do with Louis and his music."

News of the course was announced on Twitter this week by Dr Louie Dean Valencia.
A description said it would focus on hitmaker Harry and popular European culture "to understand the cultural and political development of the modern celebrity as related to questions of gender and sexuality, race, class, nation and globalism, media, fashion, fan culture, internet culture, and consumerism".
It is due to start in the spring next year.
