Harry Styles has a new website called Do You Know Who You Are and TPWK is all over it. What does TPWK mean though?

It's no secret that Harry Styles is a superstar. Between his One Direction days and his new single 'Lights Up', he wows us all time and time again. 'Lights Up' is already being hailed as a "bisexual anthem" and we cannot wait to find out what else the 25-year-old has in store for us with his next album. Speaking to Rolling Stone, Harry said that HS2 is "all about having sex and feeling sad". If 'Lights Up' is anything to go by, we think that Harry could release one of the best records of 2019.

Before dropping 'Lights Up', Harry put up an array of 'Do You Know Who You Are?' posters and billboards around the world with the initials 'TPWK' on them to tease the lyrics of the song. Harry also created a site called: doyouknowwhyyouare.com, which compliments you. All you have to do is fill in your name and then a pop up appears which says: "[YOUR NAME], you are [POSITIVE ADJECTIVE]. TPWK. Love, H." For example: "Harry Styles, you are speical. TPWK. Love, H."

Fans of Harry will already know that 'TPWK' is an acronym which stands for 'Treat People With Kindness'. It's a phrase that Harry has used for years now. During his first solo world tour, Harry sold merch with the phrase on them to raise money for local charities. You can still buy 'Treat People With Kindness' t-shirts from his store today. Harry often tweets the phrase from his account too. It's a common phrase but in recent years, it's become Harry's life mantra.

So there we have it. Treat people with kindness kids.
