Harry Styles reveals he’s “never felt the need to label” his sexuality
Harry Styles has opened up about his sexuality, admitting he has “never felt the need to label it”.
The former One Direction singer has made headlines for his high profile relationships, having dated the likes of Taylor Swift and Caroline Flack in the past.
However, Harry has always rejected pressures to publicly define his sexuality and has now claimed “everyone should just be who they want to be”.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, the “Sign of the Times” singer praised Miley Cyrus for the way she has spoken out about her own sexuality.
He said: “Being in a creative field, it’s important to be progressive. People doing stuff like that is great.
“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.”
When asked if he has ever labelled his own sexuality, Harry confessed: “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.”
The singer did not give much away when it came to his previous girlfriends, but he did suggest that he has stayed amicable with his former flames. He said: “Everyone should be friends, right?”
Last week, Nick Grimshaw well and truly stitched up his guest when Harry appeared on the BBC Radio 1 breakfast show to promote his debut album.
Nick gave Radio 1 listeners a preview of some of the tracks from the star’s album, including his new song “Two Ghosts”. It has been suspected the tune refers to Harry’s ex Taylor and Grimmy didn’t waste any time on addressing the rumours.

The host asked if the track was about anyone in particular, to which Harry replied: “I think it’s pretty self explanatory.”
He then turned to his rep and squeaked: “Help me Jeffrey!”
But Grimmy wasn’t letting him off the hook that easy. As the song began to play, Nick said: “Here’s the one about Taylor Swift,” to which Harry gasped in horror and cried: “Oh NO!”
He then joked about going to Radio 1’s rival station, saying: “I’m going to Capital.”
