One Direction's Harry Styles Addresses Bisexuality Rumors

Harry Styles GQ Cover
All five members of One Direction will be individually gracing their own cover of GQ's UK edition this upcoming September. To commemorate that fact, the boys were also interviewed by the magazine, and it was during that interview that Styles was asked point blank about his alleged bisexuality. According to GQ and E! News, rumor has had it for months now that Styles has been engaging in a relationship TV and radio host Nick Grimshaw. 

His answer? "Bisexual? Me? I don't think so. I'm pretty sure I'm not." He went on to say...

"Some of them are funny. Some of them are ridiculous. Some of them are annoying. I don't want to be one of those people that complains about the rumours. I never like it when a celebrity goes on Twitter and says, 'This isn't true!' It is what it is; I tend not to do that. The only time it gets really annoying is that if you get into a relationship and you get into a place where you really like someone and then things are being written in the papers that affect them and how they see you. Then it can get annoying."

One hopes that this isn't an instance where Styles finds the rumors to be "annoying". Otherwise, he might want to give a more committal response.

  1. Gays can never take no for an answer.

  2. Maybe he is straight. But if he weren't I highly doubt he would come forward with it. There's far too much money at stake and far too many people depending on that money for such a revelation to occur.

  3. I don't really think Harry being bi would hurt One Direction's bottom line at all - the band plays up homoeroticism like crazy and all their diehard fans fetishize homosexuality as it is. Girls could still imagine him falling for them. It's not as if he's gay like Louis obviously is lol

  4. To be fair, I'm pretty sure I'm not bisexual either.

  5. He doesn't owe anyone commitment .

  6. any straight guy would just state that fact; "i'm straight", and probably , since he's an entertainer go on to say how much he appreciates his gay fans etc. To me this is another non-denial denial. Sure he's not Bi, and as a gay man neither am I.

  7. Could we all *please* just agree that "boy bands" are pretty much the lowest common denominator when it comes to music, designed to appeal to peri-pubertal girls and a few gay boys of the same age, and there's nothing inherently interesting about them?

    OK, I take that back. From a sociological POV it's mildly interesting that this group tends to play at and hint homoeroticism to the degree they do. But perhaps that makes them even more acceptable because "teen idols" are supposed to be non-threatening sex objects who won't make demands on their female admirers, who aren't ready for sex.

    To me it's just depressing when adult gay men start idolizing them too.

  8. Harry has never inquired as to my sexuality and I don't care about his. Can't we get to a place where it doesn't matter?

  9. That's a question for the teenage One Direction fans, Terry. They're basically the ones driving the rumors.

    As for Harry, his gender neutral pronouns and basically dancing around calling himself straight are noted and obvious. He knows his truth. I don't consider that attractive to begin with, and I don't care what his orientation is, but you can best believe he would not come out if he is gay.

    And for the record, since I'm FORCED to keep seeing pictures and articles about these twits, I really fvcking HATE that swirly hairstyle of his!

  11. I find it insulting that this is a thing. Apparently if a celebrity shows signs of being anything other than straight then they're a circus freak. Look! A bisexual! That's newsworthy!

  12. Liberalism is about making bisexuality acceptable for women, not for men. It's based on the porn standard wherein all women are expected to be bisexual in order to be considered sexy by liberals. If a man says he's bisexual, the same liberals would consider him to not be as sexy as bisexual women.

    Why the double standard? Women. Women are sellers by nature. They will wh'ore out their sexuality (including acting bisexual even if they aren't) to men if there's a reward waiting for them. Such women consider bisexual men a threat because such men interfere with her ability to compete for the attention of reward-givers (ie men).

    Liberals can cope with the male homosexual act but only if it is segregated. Male bisexuality means de-segregation.Ultimately, it is women, the true beneficiaries of liberalism, who are the true enemy of the male homosexual act.

  13. Liberals are enemies of the de-segregated male homosexual act. Liberal women see such de-segregated acts as a threat to her ability to market herself to men.

  14. Towleroad wastes a lot of white ink on the subject.

  15. Anderson Cooper had it correct when he called the boys of One Direction twinks. That is why I enjoy them. As to if any of them are gay, bi or straight, I only really care about Liam. *evil grin*

    Also, we all know that Simon Cowel is stuck in the musical Stone Age when it comes to sexuality even if the fans of those groups are much more 21st Century in their views.

    It wouldn't hurt One Direction if any of them came out of the closet, but until that day, it is still nice to dream.

  16. "One hopes that this isn't an instance where Styles finds the rumors to be "annoying". Otherwise, he might want to give a more committal response. "

    I don't understsnd this commentary. I would agree that baseless rumors about being gay or bisexual are annoying. Imagine of some busybody at your office watercooler were constantly saying when someone leaves the room, "Did you see how John sat on the couch next to a man at the staff meeting? i'll bet he's bisexual... I saw Fred give a man a hug last week. I bet he's a gay!" L
    Those kind of rumors that make being gay or bi something scandalous are truly annoying.

    And as for saying something "more commutal," I completely disagree. I wish every straight celebrity would start answering as some of the more enlightened one do already. (Something like: "Who I date should not affect my career positively or negatively. I can play gay, straight or bi on stage and I shouldn't need to deny or clarify anything to get cast in a role.)

    To me that's classy. What I don't like is when an actor Tweets to the world something like "I want everyone to know I am absolutely NOT gay and NOT bisexual!"

  17. Isn't he the one that was dating the queen of the beards. 3 of those guys are totally gay.

  18. "One hopes that this isn't an instance where Styles finds the rumors to be "annoying". Otherwise, he might want to give a more committal response. "

    That's a horrible sentiment to express, and shame on you.

    No, I'm not being sassy - seriously, that's a gross and uncomfortable sentiment to try and pass off casually.

  19. Well, since he's only "pretty sure" he's not bi, I better help him figure it out once and for all. :-)

  20. my first thought was "who cares"
    but, then, after really thinking about it for a bit i thought "why is there black lint in my belly button? i haven't worn a black shirt in days!" and then i realized that it wasn't black lint, it was blue lint and it was from my towel, which is blue.
    and it also made me realize that there really isn't anything good to watch on television tuesday nights

  21. Women fear male bisexuality because it proves that men are superior to women.

    Posted by: Adam | Jul 31, 2013 4:30:49 AM

  22. oh my god lol I truly feel like a reality show about Adam moving back in with his mom would be the best thing to ever happen to my DVR, these mommy issues are SEVERE

    Posted by: JMC | Jul 31, 2013 4:49:54 AM

  23. JMC,

    Lol, you just don't want to admit that liberal women exploit the bisexual double standard to oppress male homosexuality. It's time to turn the screws on these liberal women - severely.

    Posted by: Adam | Jul 31, 2013 5:54:28 AM

  24. yeah yeah i know women are entirely to blame for our oppression despite the fact that we live in a patriarchal society, i've read your rants before lol

    Posted by: JMC | Jul 31, 2013 6:13:48 AM

  25. @ JMC Stop feeding the KKKonservative trolls. Towleroad better start moderating their comments because the KKKonservative anti-gay racists are out of hand and have made this site a garbage pit. That said,why does any grown adult gay man give a S*** about Harry Styles? Most of us know a gay guy when we see one. I doubt he's even really bisexual. So many youngsters in that industry try to play it off as if they are heterosexual but when they get older,what happens? They come out of the closet as *GAY*. Ricky Martin and Lance Bass for 2 examples of this. Let the little teen/tween bitches have him. It's not like they will ever have a chance with him anyway. Same goes for the Justin Bieber idiots.
