Fans of Harry Styles and his former band One Direction have their own speculations about the singer’s sexuality. Questions have been raised about whether or not Styles is as straight as he seems.
These questions particularly come from the “Larry” fanbase which consists of supporters of his alleged secret relationship with former bandmate Louis Tomlinson. On the other hand, some questions are raised by those who don’t quite understand the reasoning behind the singer’s sexually ambiguous way of dressing. And frankly, Styles is completely baffled.
The British singer addressed the questions during an interview with The Guardian. When asked about his reaction to the questions about his sexuality Styles answered:
“Um. I guess I have been asked? But, I dunno. Why?” The “Adore You” hitmaker is obviously confused by the need to ask the question at all.
“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: ooh this is mine and it’s not yours,” he explained. “It’s: who cares? Does that make sense? It’s just: who cares?,” he added.
As for his sense of style, the crooner explained that his fashion is influenced by his collaborators and not as a symbol of his sexuality.
“Am I sprinkling in nuggets of sexual ambiguity to try and be more interesting? No,” he told the publication. “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.”
