The One Direction star admitted that he’s never felt the need to explain who he falls in love with.

Harry Styles has spoken about his sexuality in a new interview, saying that he has no reason to label himself.

The singer – who released his self-titled album last Friday – reiterated his longtime pro-LGBT belief that people should be allowed to be themselves without prejudice.

“It’s weird for me – everyone should just be who they want to be,” Harry told The Sun. “It’s tough to justify somebody having to answer to someone else about stuff like that.”

Harry praised fellow popstar Miley Cyrus for identifying as pansexual.

“Being in a creative field, it’s important to be progressive,” he said. “People doing stuff like that is great.”

That being said, Harry refused to label his own sexuality during the interview.

When asked if he’d ever considered a label, he replied: “No, I’ve never felt the need to really. No.

“I don’t feel like it’s something I’ve ever felt like I have to explain about myself.”

Last month, Harry once again lent his full support to equal rights, calling them “fundamental” rather than “political”.
