Harry Styles turned 22 yesterday and he did something that made us feel happy, free, confused and lonely at the same time.

"I don't know about you, but I'm feeling 22," he tweeted. For those of you not aware of the gravity of this tweet, it's the first line of the chorus to 22, a song by Harry's ex Taylor Swift (who's Taylor Swift anyway, ew?).

A little history: Harry and Taylor had a short-lived relationship that ended early 2013. They never really became friends again or anything, but in the rare occasion that they bumped into each other, they reportedly maintained cordial demeanours (the place was probably too crowded for them to be able to share any noticeable awkwardness anyway).

Needless to say, Harry's use of Taylor's lyrics makes the whole situation miserable and magical. However, we can't help but wonder if he celebrated his birthday with more than just one line from the song. Tell us, Harry. Did you dress up like a hipster? Did you have breakfast at midnight? Did you sleep? Did you just keep dancing?

Lest he invites the Internet to lose its shit, he would've probably kept all this away from social media and prying eyes, so until photos of a One Direction slumber party surface, we'll be here, making fun of our exes in honour of the song. Oh, and happy belated birthday, Harry!
