Ashton Kutcher, a Hollywood actor, recently revealed that he wanted to apologize to British pop sensation Harry Styles for something he said carelessly.
In the most recent “Explain This” episode of Esquire, the former “MTV: Punk’d” host recounted his favorite karaoke story, which also featured a cameo by none other than the “Don’t Worry Darling” actor.
Unfortunately, Ashton was unaware. To begin with.
Ashton told the story of a famous musician who hosted a karaoke party and happened to be his neighbor.
The singer then allegedly got up and performed a “out of this world bananas performance,” thinking at the time, “this is just so unfair.”
The “Just Like Love” star never mentioned any names, but the story got even better.
“Another kid gets up” and reportedly sings an ABBA song, leaving him speechless.
So, after “the kid” exited the stage, he and his wife Mila Kunis approached the young singer and exclaimed:
“‘Man, I got to tell you something, you’re a ringer. You’re like a karaoke ringer. You’re really good.'”
“The kid’s” response was reported:
“‘Thanks, man. I appreciate that.”
After that, he and Mila went to their friend and gushed about “the kid,” saying he was fantastic. But then their pal said:
“It’s Harry Styles!”
Ashton then had to inquire as to who that was, and Mila reportedly realized:
“It’s the guy in the boy band. He’s a professional singer.”
The dad-of-one confessed to Esquire:
“Oh my god, now I feel like a jerk. He’s a professional singer. And we’re trying to tell him he’s a good singer.”
“And I like feel so dumb. So I just really want to say, I’m sorry Harry Styles, but you’re really good at karaoke, man. Seriously, like really good.”
And it’s not just Ashton Kutcher who agrees; the singer-turned-actor is scheduled to perform at the 2023 Grammy Awards on February 5.
The “As It Was” singer is up for six awards, including Album of the Year and Song of the Year. Harry Styles has received his first nominations in the Big Four categories.
Harry Styles is performing at the Grammys for the first time in two years. He previously performed “Watermelon Sugar,” for which he received his first Grammy nomination for Best Pop Solo Performance.
