'I'd give it my best': Harry Styles open to becoming New Zealand's next Prime Minister

Harry Styles has revealed he is open to becoming New Zealand's next Prime Minister on The Project on Wednesday night. 

Styles joined the programme to discuss his upcoming New Zealand tour. On Tuesday he announced he would be bringing his Love On Tour to the country in November where he will play one gig at Spark Arena in Auckland.

Styles said while he is excited to come back to New Zealand, he's not sure he had "the quips" to become our next Prime Minister.

"I would never miss you off. I've been lucky enough to come to New Zealand a few times over the years and it's always been amazing and I've always had a great time doing the shows there so I'm excited to be coming back."

Styles first found fame on the X Factor UK when he was part of boyband One Direction. The band went on to release four number one albums, sell 50 million records and win 200 music awards before going on an indefinite hiatus in 2016.

Since then Styles has been releasing his own music including a new solo album Fine Line which has broken sales records around the world.

But he doesn't think his next gig could be the Prime Minister of New Zealand.

When asked by host Jeremy Corbett, he said it would be quite an "undertaking".

"I don't know if I'd have the quips for it but I'd give it my best." 

In the interview Styles also said he was willing to give hosting The Project a try while he's over here.

"I'm big into the hosting now and I'm trying to add another string to my bow. So yeah, if you'd have me that would be wonderful," he said.
