After years of interrogation by nosy fans, Harry Styles is believed to have finally opened up about his rumored bisexuality.
On Sunday, the 24-year-old singer kicked off the European leg of his world tour in Basel, Switzerland, where he performed two unreleased records that were left off his solo debut album. One was an upbeat track called “Anna,” and the other was a moodier cut called “Medicine”; the latter of which is described as a “bisexual anthem” that has prompted more speculation about Styles’ personal life.
After footage of the performance surfaced online, people began to transcribe the lyrics from the videos. And it seems there is one particular verse that suggests Styles has had intimate relationships with both men and women.
“Tingle running through my blood, fingers to my toes / Tingle running through my bones / The boys and the girls are here I mess around a bit / And I'm okay with it,” he sings. “The boys and girls are here I'm messing around with them / And I'm okay with it.”
As previously mentioned, rumors of Styles’ sexuality have been circulating for years. Some fans have also claimed that the singer had a romantic relationship with his fellow One Direction member Louis Tomlinson; however, Styles has not opened up about his sexual identity.
“Being in a creative field, it’s important to be progressive. People doing stuff like that is great. […] 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,” he said before he was asked if he had labeled his sexuality. “No, I’ve never felt the need to really […] I don’t feel like it’s something I’ve ever felt like I have to explain about myself.”
And he’s right. He doesn’t owe anyone an explanation because, quite frankly, it’s nobody’s business. Twitter, however, DGAF about privacy and has been buzzing about his rumored sexuality for the past day. Check out some of the reactions below.
