For the second time in the span of about a week, Harry Styles is making comments about same-sex relationships that have us wondering if he isn’t really joking.
Either that, or clever Styles is pulling a Nick Jonas to hype up One Direction’s plethora of gay fans even more.
During an interview with the Sun on Sunday, One Direction began discussing with which celebrity single 1D member, Niall Horan, should hook up.
“Every new trip we say that Niall’s slept with a different celebrity. Who should it be this time?” One Direction member, Louis Tomlinson, said during the interview. Horan went with Rihanna, while Styles suggested Ariana Grande.
The Sun interviewer then suggested they pick a male suitor, which spurred Styles to tell Horan, “Hey, don’t knock it till you try it.”
Does that mean Styles has some past experiences not as widely publicized as his brief relationship with Taylor Swift? We’re thinking yes.
Styles also made headlines last week for saying that gender was “not that important” when picking a significant other.
Instead, Styles said he looked for a “sense of humor” and someone who is “nice to people.” So sweet!
Of course, Styles has been a long supporter of gay rights and has, naturally, been the center of some gay and bisexual rumors, but the singer just laughs them off.
“So you’re not bisexual?” British GQ pointedly asked Styles a few years back during an interview.
“Bisexual? Me? I don’t think so,” Styles responded. “I’m pretty sure I’m not.”
Hmm, that doesn’t sound like a very convincing answer to us. Sounds like someone is up for some exploration and we say more power to him. It’s great to see a guy who’s comfortable in his own skin.
On the flip side, we do think someone who is that comfortable in his own skin wouldn’t be shy to just admit that he also has a thing for dudes.
