With a new album and a hit single under his belt, everyone wants to know even more about Harry Styles. With his One Direction days seemingly behind him for now, the singer is moving forward with a new sound and plenty of confidence in himself. However, it also seems as if everyone wants to know about more than just his music, they want to know about his sexuality as well.
According to E! News, in an interview that was published on May 14, Harry Styles was asked once more about his sexuality. This is certainly not the first time the topic has been raised, as back in 2013 he shot down rumors that he was bisexual. Now though it seems as if the singer has a bit more to say on the subject.
When asked about pop music and sexuality, with the example of Miley Cyrus having come out as pansexual a number of years back, Harry Styles said that because music is a creative industry, it is important to be progressive. People doing things like coming out is great he believes, and for him though it is all kind of weird because he feels that “everyone should just be who they want to be.”
In fact, the singer said that for him, it is tough to justify having to answer stuff like that. On top of these statements about sexuality within the music industry, Harry Styles also made it clear that he has never felt like he needed to define who he is and what his sexuality is for anyone. He feels that this is not something that he really needs to explain about himself. Instead, he simply is who he is.
Recently, Harry Styles took part in an interview in which he spoke out about LGBT rights and when asked about the politics of it he made it clear that he believes that it does not feel like it has anything to do with politics for him. Instead, he said that he believes that everyone should seen as equal and, “Stuff like equality feels much more fundamental.”
While he may not feel the need to define his sexuality for anyone, Harry Styles has also made it clear that he feels equality is a fundamental right and it does not matter what a person’s sexuality is. For now though, it seems as if the singer is perfectly happy in his own relationship, with Tess Ward, a chef he is currently dating. Even though he does not feel as if he needs to talk too much about his love life or his sexuality in order to make anyone else happy, it sounds like the singer is more than happy with who he is and the people in his life.
