One Direction Singer

Ferrari Was a RENTAL

EXCLUSIVE

0626_harry_styles_PCN2Lance Bass can save his financial advice for someone else -- because One Direction singer Harry Styles claims he didn't drop $200,000 on a brand new Ferrari ... he just rented it for a day.

TMZ posted the photo this morning -- showing 18-year-old Styles rolling around Hollywood in a brand new Ferrari California this weekend.

Former 'N Sync singer Lance Bass had some words for him too -- telling us last night, a Ferrari is a TERRIBLE investment at this stage in Styles' career. Lance said Styles should be focusing on saving his money, not throwing it away on cars.

But Lance wasted his breath -- because a rep for Styles tells us, the young singer is a whiz with his money ... and only rented the Ferrari for a few hours ... as a rare treat.

We're told the Ferrari cost Styles a few hundos at most ... which he can probably afford.

Looks like TMZ has failed to fact check their story again. The truth and TMZ are like oil and water. They did the same thing with NFL Giant Brandon Jacobs. For weeks, they called him a cheap skate for keeping some little boys allowance. But when Jacobs quietly showed up with his own child and took the boy & his brother out for a memorable day AND gave them autographed gear, I could not find a word of it here. I guess if it isn't a nasty or degrading, TMZ won't print it. Just make stuff up, like with this story.

As someone who worked with the old time boy bands nsync and BSB, I can tell you by the time you pay your management, agents, assistants, crew, then have to split what's left 5 ways, you don't have much.
And these new boy bands from England are not even close to be able to afford that kind of stuff. You have to sell LOTS of music before you bring home money. The record labels own until you pay them back all the money they forked out for you. You're looking at having two successful albums before you make money.

I mean that was kind of obvious that it was a rental. Why would he buy a car in america and fly it to every place they go on tour to and then bring it over to england and then have to change it and put the steering whell on the other side...

You guys are idiots. You first reported that the kid bought the car, then you shoved your idiot cameras into Lance Bass' face and said "What do you think of this boy band member buying this car?" (he clearly had not even heard about it, nor should he have since it's not news), and now that the story has changed, Lance Bass suddenly "wasted his breath". HE DIDN'T EVEN CARE OR KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT. YOU WERE THE ONES PRESENTING THE STORY AND THEN DEMANDING AN ON THE SPOT OPINION ABOUT IT. Oh my god you people make me want to rub my eyes with wasabi.

They won't rent you one for less than a day. You need to be over 25 and have some serious credit. Couple of hundred is total BS -- they charge more for a Hummer.

I* agree with Cashmack, rental companies require a driver to be 25 and a hefty deposit on high performance vehicles.

Lance Bass is a surprisingly level-headed person. His advice is dead-on... even if Harry Styles rented the stupid car.

He is going to be in for a big surprise when he gets a bill from the record company and that rental was charged to his advance!
