Harry Styles


If there's one direction Harry Styles swings, it's straight.

In an interview with his bandmates in the September issue of British GQ, the One Direction heartthrob laughed off a rumor that he and U.K. TV and radio host Nick Grimshaw were an item despite the former's reputation as being quite the ladies' man (as ex Taylor Swift can attest).

"Oh, really? I didn't even know. We're not dating, no. We're just friends," replied Styles.

"So you're not bisexual," asked the magazine.

"Bisexual? Me? I don't think so. I'm pretty sure I'm not," said the singer.

We're pretty sure his female fan base is happy to hear that.

Harry also sounded off on the constant gossip about his sex life and whether such rife speculation ever affects him.

"Some of [the rumors] are funny. Some of them are ridiculous. Some of them are annoying. I don't want to be one of those people that complains about the rumours," noted Styles. "I never like it when a celebrity goes on Twitter and says, 'This isn't true!' It is what it is; I tend not to do that."

Perhaps in a nod to his now-defunct and highly publicized relationship with Swift, Styles acknowledged that dating in the harsh glare of the media spotlight can sometimes be tough.

"The only time it gets really annoying is that if you get into a relationship and you get into a place where you really like someone and then things are being written in the papers that affect them and how they see you," he said. "Then it can get annoying."

As for his fellow 1D members, Niall Horan and Liam Payne also dished on how the boy-banders deal with the usual groupies and booze while on tour.

"We haven't been on the road long enough yet—ask me in a few months' time. All last year, we were touring in America so we were all under age, so we couldn't really party then, anyway," the crooner said.

Added Liam: "Groupies? We don't have time to party! I'm not even single. This sort of talk will get me in trouble."

The two claimed that work comes before play when it comes to One Direction. 

Said Niall: "We go back on the road straight after a show and we're gone. I wish we did have time for girls and parties but we don't."

"Maybe we need someone to schedule that in for us," joked Liam.

The hitmakers meanwhile are continuing to record their latest album while on the road and hinted that it'll have a more rock-oriented sound. No word yet on a release date.
