Harry Styles released his debut, self-titled solo album May 12. In a recent interview with The Sun, the former One Direction star opened up about his lifestyle and the new album, yet remained ambiguous about his own sexual orientation.
The “Sign of the Times” singer told the interviewer artists like Miley Cyrus, who came out as pansexual in 2016, are inspirational for people in such a creative, progressive field.
“People doing stuff, like, that is great,” Styles said. “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 about his own sexuality, Styles explained has never felt the need to identify himself, remarking, “I don’t feel like it’s something I’ve ever felt like I have to explain about myself.”
The star didn’t reveal anything about his latest flame, Tess Ward, a chef who promotes the “Naked Diet.” Ward appeared in the crowd to watch Styles’ first solo performance at London’s The Garage Saturday night.
