Harry Styles has avoided using words like “heterosexual” to describe himself and has remained press-coy when talking about his own sexuality.
Last year, he released the song Medicine that sparked bisexual rumors with lyrics about
“messing around” with “boys and girls.”
And he’s said to stadiums full of fans,
“We’re all a little bit gay, aren’t we?”
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Styles is setting the record “straight” (ish) on all that bisexual stuff…
“I want to make people feel comfortable being whatever they want to be. Maybe at a show you can have a moment of knowing that you’re not alone.”
I can’t claim that I know what it’s like, because I don’t. So I’m not trying to say,
‘I understand what it’s like.’
I’m just trying to make people feel included and seen.”
It’s not about me trying to champion the cause, because I’m not the person to do that. It’s just about not ignoring it, I guess.”
Everyone in that room is on the same page and everyone knows what I stand for. I’m not saying I understand how it feels. I’m just trying to say,
‘I see you.’”
Hey, it doesn’t hurt anyone’s career these days to appeal to the LGBTQ community. The REAL truth? Well, that’s really none of our business, is it? And if you ask me, there are some people who EVERYBODY wants to get in bed with, so, why limit your audience?
