Harry Styles might have just come out as bisexual
Harry Styles has provoked an outpouring of enthusiasm from fans after lyrics in his new song seemed to reveal his bisexuality.
The former One Direction singer has spoken about his sexuality before, saying last year that he had “never felt the need” to label himself.
“It’s weird for me – everyone should just be who they want to be,” he said at the time.
“It’s tough to justify somebody having to answer to someone else about stuff like that.”
But the star now seems to have described his sexuality in clearer terms.
Styles’ lyrics for his new song, Medicine, have led his fans to explode with excitement and hail him as a bi icon.
Performing in Paris, the 24-year-old sang: “The boys and the girls are here, I mess around with them, and I’m okay with it.”
He followed up those sensational lines by singing: “I’m coming down, I figured out I kinda like it, and when I sleep I’m gonna dream of how you tasted”
Styles even appeared to use bisexual lighting for parts of the song.
He has also long been a supporter of LGBT rights, having performed with a rainbow flag draped over his microphone last year during his ongoing solo tour.
He even made a subtle jab at Donald Trump and his anti-trans policies in October, during his Washington DC concert – by waving a transgender flag.
And fans were delighted when the star kissed Late Late Show host James Cordenduring a festive edition of Carpool Karaoke.
But the reaction to that clip had nothing on this moment in history.
Firstly, America’s sweetheart, Olympic ice skater Adam Rippon, chimed in, saying: “And just like that, my skin is clear, my my vision is corrected, and I’m suddenly bisexual”.
A different fan wrote on Twitter: “i was absent for a while but i’m back just to say that medicine is a bi anthem and i love one (1) man, harry styles”.
Another said: “harry styles is bi, my 14 year old self can be laid to rest”.
“Harry Styles is the bi icon We want and We deserve,” another commented, which seems fair.
Some could not contain their joy to mere lowercase letters.
One wrote: “HARRY STYLES JUST CAME OUT AS BI IM LITERALLY IN TEARS I AM ON THE GROUND IM SO HAPPY THAT HE FEELS OKAY WITH SHARING WHO HE IS AND BEING WHO HE IS IM SKBBING”.
Another said: “UPDATE: MEDICINE BY HARRY STYLES IS A BI ANTHEM. I REPEAT. IT IS A BI ANTHEM. CONFIRMED. I STAN FOREVER.”
And one more said: “HARRY STYLES IS GIVING THE BI’S THE REPRESENTATION THEY DESERVE”.
The support for their new bi icon was heartwarming.
One told everyone: “harry styles is a bi icon and i’ll fight anyone who doesn’t agree”.
And above the fact that “Sir Isaac Newton was only 23 when he discovered the law of gravity,” one fan wrote: “Harry Styles was only 23 when he wrote the bi anthem Medicine”.
Can’t argue with that.
