2. Harry Styles
From the package grabbing, bum cupping, cheek kissing, drag-dressing, bed-snuggling shenanigans, one might assume that One Direction is a band of gay men. But they’re not. They’re just five friends (now four, unfortunately) who are reveling in the loosening restrictions on platonic male intimacy.
But Harry Styles ups the ante a little bit, teasing his gay fans more than the other band members (especially Liam Payne, who has made rather unsavory remarks). In a 2013 interview with British GQ, Styles said that he doesn’t think he’s bisexual, he means he’s pretty sure he’s not. Of course, he means to say: “OH, GOD, NO!” but it sounds a little more titillating to leave the possibility of male attraction open, especially now that it’s fashionable to say that one can appreciate the beauty of the male form, etc.
