Los Angeles, Feb 27 (IANS) Singer Peter Andre, who became popular in his teens, sees elements of himself in teen sensation Harry Styles' personality.

"Harry Styles was in the papers last week after enjoying an all-night partying session that finished at 7 a.m. People seem worried that he's burning the candle at both ends, but let me tell you - I have been there, done that and I think it is totally normal for a kid of his age," quoted Andre as saying.

"I was 16 when I signed my first record deal, so I was younger than Harry when I started out. I was doing all-nighters until I was about 25 and thought nothing of it.

"Eventually, you grow out of it, and if anyone suggested doing that now, I would be like, 'No thanks, I am off to bed!'," said the 40-year-old.

Styles is associated with the One Direction band.
