Harry Styles gets art and financial advice from Jay-Z

Harry Styles appreciates art not just for its beauty but for its potential income. According to a Daily Star article published on Sunday, Feb. 16, the One Direction member recently made a huge art purchase as an investment.

Harry reportedly bought a painting by late Haitian-American artist Jean-Michel Basquiat at the auction house Christie’s last week for an astounding £2.8 million, which amounts to $4.7 million under the current exchange rate.

"Harry’s a big fan of art and sees it as a good way to make money. Rather than a splurge, he thinks it’s a smart investment. He already has an art collection worth about £150,000 [$250,406] but that’s nothing compared to this purchase," said a source.

“Harry’s really smart when it comes to money. He wants to invest his cash and Jay-Z advised him to buy art," added the source.

It was actually Jay-Z who introduced Harry to Jean-Michel's work.

Jay-Z has been in the industry for a very long time, is a successful businessman and entrepreneur, and seems like a responsible family man, so if Harry is getting advice from him and following it, his future looks secure. He certainly seems to be managing and using his money much better than fellow teen heartthrob Justin Bieber!

Do you think Harry Styles and the other One Direction guys are being smart with their money?
