The singer refused to label his sexuality when asked.

Harry Styles has refused to label his sexuality and gave blunt responses when an interviewer attempted to get him to define himself. In an interview, with The Guardian, the singer was probed on whether he identified as bisexual.

The singer said he wasn’t hiding anything from the public, saying: “It’s 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 [because] I don’t want to tell you.’ It’s not, ‘Oh, this is mine and it’s not yours.'”

When asked what it was, Harry responded by saying: “It’s who cares? Does that make sense? It’s just who cares?”

He continued, saying: “Am I sprinkling in nuggets of sexual ambiguity to try and be more interesting? No.”

And referencing the album’s sleeve, which has some colours similar to the bisexual and trans flags, he said: “In terms of how I wanna dress, and what the album sleeve’s gonna be, I tend to make decisions in terms of collaborators I want to work with.”

“I want things to look a certain way. Not because it makes me look gay, or it makes me look straight, or it makes me look bisexual, but because I think it looks cool.

“And more than that, I dunno, I just think sexuality’s something that’s fun. Honestly? I can’t say I’ve given it any more thought than that.”

He finished by saying: “What I would say, about the whole being-asked-about-my-sexuality thing – this is a job where you might get asked. And to complain about it, to say you hate it, and still do the job, that’s just silly.

“You respect that someone’s gonna ask. And you hope that they respect they might not get an answer.”
