It was just more than a month ago that Harry Styles was helping then-girlfriend Taylor Swift celebrate her birthday with a quiet trip to rural northern England.

But now that he's single, the One Direction hunk opted for a less low-key celebration to mark his 19th birthday. And instead of hanging out with a girlfriend, he got up close and personal with a very, very different lady: a stripper.

Hitting a London club for a Friday night celebration with his friends, including bandmate Niall Horan, the racy rendezvous was a gift from Radio 1's DJ Nick "Grimmy" Grimshaw. And it was more ridiculous than racy, Styles tells the U.K.'s Sun.

"It was great," he said. "I was in stitches – it was really funny."



Added Horan on Twitter: "Was a right laugh."

In character as a cop, his birthday present gave him a lap dance, reports The Sun, before playfully arresting him. Adding to the hilarity: "The funniest part was that when she finished she said, 'I'm really sorry. I couldn't find my truncheon, so I had to bring my nunchucks.' That was a bit weird," he said.

But the festivities weren't quite as X-rated as it sounds. "She stripped down to her underwear," according to Styles, "but unfortunately there was a no-nudity policy in the bar."

The teen idol partied until 3 a.m. before heading to a friend's house. "Put it this way – it was a long day," he said. "We had two nights on the trot, but you have to on your birthday, don't you?"
