ManCrush: Harry Styles – continuing to set the direction
We’re loving the new music from Harry Styles, and we’re loving his perspective on life.
“Am I sprinkling in nuggets of sexual ambiguity to try and be more interesting? No…” says Styles, in an interview with the Guardian. “In terms of how I wanna dress, and what the album sleeve’s gonna be, 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. And more than that, I dunno, I just think sexuality’s something that’s fun. Honestly? I can’t say I’ve given it any more thought than that.”
“What I would say, about the whole being-asked-about-my-sexuality thing – this is a job where you might get asked…” adds Styles. “And to complain about it, to say you hate it, and still do the job, that’s just silly. You respect that someone’s gonna ask. And you hope that they respect they might not get an answer.”
Now, giving us the collaboration we’ve been dreaming of, Harry joins Lizzo on stage for a rendition of Juice. No big deal.
