The 19-year-old recently confessed to locking lips with the “Teenage Dream” singer in an interview with British Cosmopolitan.
When asked about the sexiest woman he’s ever kissed, Horan recalled the smooch with Perry.
“It was amazing and very purple – she had purple lipstick on,” he says. “I don’t think there will ever be anything cooler than kissing her … until I marry her, maybe.”
After being awarded Ultimate Men at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year Awards 2012, Horan and the rest of One Direction – Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson – spoke about becoming a worldwide phenomenon, becoming men and the state of their love lives.
Styles – who is considered the ladies’ man of the group – feels “lucky to be in this position,” he says. “I’m not entitled to get annoyed. I’m not half as busy as they make me out to be,” he says. “A lot of the time, the way it’s portrayed is that I only see women in a sexual way. But I grew up with just my mum and sister, so I respect women a lot.”
