Is Harry Styles’ new song Medicine really a bisexual anthem?

Steve Jennings

Fans seem to think so…

Harry Styles sent fans into meltdown mode last night with a performance of a brand new rock track titled Medicine, which seemingly hints at the star’s sexuality.

The British star performed the unreleased song on his debut tour, and has been hailed by fans as a “bisexual anthem” because of its lyrical content.

On Medicine, Harry sings, “Here to take my medicine, take my medicine, treat you like a gentleman.”

He also boasts about “messing around” with both sexes: “The boys and girls are here, I’m messing around with them, and I’m okay with it.”

Fans praised the track on Twitter, and were quick to proclaim the performance his official coming out.

Harry has addressed sexuality in the past.

During an interview with The Sun, he said: “It’s weird for me – everyone should just be who they want to be.”

“It’s tough to justify somebody having to answer to someone else about stuff like that.”

In the same interview, the singer-songwriter also refused to label his own sexuality.

When asked if he’d ever considered a label, he replied: “No, I’ve never felt the need to really. No. I don’t feel like it’s something I’ve ever felt like I have to explain about myself.”

Harry has always been a visible ally to the LGBT+ community, especially throughout his current world tour where he’s waved both Pride and trans flags on stage during his shows.

During a show in Sweden, he also decided to vocally lend his influence to inspire inclusivity.

“If you are black, if you are white, if you are gay, if you are straight, if you are transgender – whoever you are, whoever you want to be, I support you,” he told the screaming crowds.

“I love every single one of you.”

And last year during an interview on French television, Harry was asked about LGBT+ equality being political, and his response was perfect.

“That doesn’t feel like politics to me,” he said. “Stuff like equality feels much more fundamental. I feel like everyone is equal. That doesn’t feel like politics to me.”

Harry Styles’ current world tour is in support of his debut solo album, which reached No.1 in the UK and US earlier this year.
