Harry Styles says it’s “outdated” to ask him to label his sexuality
Harry Styles has discussed his sexuality in a new interview, saying it’s “outdated” to have to put a label on it.Styles’ sexuality has been a big talking point for fans, and around the release of his self-titled debut album in 2017, he somewhat evasively addressed the rumours for the first time, saying he “never felt the need” to label his sexuality.The following year, he shared a new track called ‘Medicine’ on which he sings: “The boys and the girls are in, I’ll mess around with them, and I’m OK with it.”In a new interview with Better Homes & Gardens, Styles discussed the conversation around his sexuality, saying: “I’ve been really open with it with my friends, but that’s my personal experience; it’s mine.“The whole point of where we should be heading, which is toward accepting everybody and being more open, is that it doesn’t matter,” he added, “and it’s about not having to label everything, not having to clarify what boxes you’re checking.”In a 2019 interview with The Guardian, Styles said it was “not like I’m sitting on an answer, and protecting it, and holding it back. It’s not a case of: ‘I’m not telling you ’cause I don’t want to tell you.’ It’s not: ‘Ooh, this is mine and it’s not yours.’ It’s: ‘Who cares?’ Does that make sense? It’s just: ‘Who cares?'”Styles is set to release his forthcoming third album, ‘Harry’s House’, on May 20.
