One Direction Talks Groupies, Bisexual Rumors & New Album in British GQ
Here’s good news for female One Direction fans: Harry Styles isn’t dating a man. Here’s the bad news: the band isn’t really into the whole groupie scene.
One Direction graces the cover of British GQ, and inside, Harry is asked about a rumor that he’s actually dating one of his best male friends, British DJ Nick Grimshaw. “We’re not dating, no. We’re just friends,” says Harry. When the reporter responds, “So you’re not bisexual?” Harry replies, “Bisexual? Me? I don’t think so. I’m pretty sure I’m not.”
Commenting on the non-stop rumors about his love life, Harry adds, “Some of them are funny. Some of them are ridiculous. Some of them are annoying.” However, he says he’s not one for taking to Twitter to debunk the most out-there ones.
“I never like it when a celebrity goes on Twitter and says, ‘This isn’t true!,'” Harry tells GQ. “It is what it is; I tend not to do that. 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. Then it can get annoying.”
The other members of the band, meanwhile, tell GQ that contrary to popular opinion, their downtime on the road isn’t a non-stop groupie fest with hot and cold running girls.
“The type of girls that would sleep with you in a heartbeat aren’t the type of girls I’d want to take home anyway,” says Louis Tomlinson. “We go back on the road straight after a show and we’re gone,” adds Niall Horan. “I wish we did have time for girls and parties but we don’t.” And Liam Payne chimes in, “Maybe we need someone to schedule that in for us.”
It’s true that 1D doesn’t have much time for partying, since they’re not only on tour, but also recording their next album. “It’ll be a bit heavier. A bit rockier. A bit cooler,” predicts classic rock fan Niall, while Liam adds, “Consider this a warning: this is a new sound.”
