When millions of teen girls cry at the sight of you, you get special privileges.
Like One Direction’s Harry Styles, who showed up near closing time at the Georgia Aquarium on Monday and was allowed to roam the park with some of his tour members after hours – free from the general public.
The British heartthrob and his entourage spent over an hour at the world’s largest aquarium on their day off before performing at Atlanta’s Gwinnett Center on Tuesday night. During a behind-the-scenes tour, they saw whale sharks and manta rays up close.
Styles also paid special attention to an Atlantic bottlenose dolphin named Shaka; he touched her, fed her fish and signaled her to do a jump with the assistance of a trainer.
Can’t you just hear the squeals from girls everywhere?
