Harry Styles Caused Chris Martin To Wonder If He’s Really Straight

martinI think One Direction are the biggest band in the world, their songs are great. I’m saying One Direction are brilliant and I’m not kidding. You know why? Because their songs are really good and I don’t think that any of them are going to go solo. I think they appreciate their chemistry from watching their movie… Harry has come to a couple of our shows, I think I probably said the same thing about chemistry. I can’t remember – I was too enamoured with his hair cut. I was like this, ‘I was pretty sure I was a straight guy before’ — I was having a hot flush.”

    Harry has some fierce eyebrows.

    Harry has some fierce eyebrows!

    It is perfectly normal for a straight guy to want to fu*k a cute young adult.

  • carey579

    If Chris finds Harry attractive then –

    He is definitely straight!

  • carey579

    First of all I hate this cliché ‘would go gay/lesbian/straight for’ thing but I think mostly it’s the personality of the sex that we are not sexually attracted to attracts us – if that makes sense.

    I find Keira Knightley terribly attractive – her personality – and I think I’d want to marry her if I was straight. But not many straight guys find her sexy as I’ve come to realise or not as much as the other curvy celebs.

    Or it’s all just a publicity stunt -__- One Direction sure has one of the best PR out there right?

  • Ridpathos

    Harry Styles… ew.

    Carey: I understand. I have straight crushes on Keira Knightley, Natalie Portman, and Angelina Jolie. They’re such beautiful women, but I don’t think I could be sexually aroused by them. But their personalities and beauty are so awesome that I really wish I could be in a relationship with them.

    And that is a black woman’s hairstyle from the 90s. Halle Berry even had it in “The Call”.

    I can’t wrap my mind around grown ass adults claiming to want to bang feminine little boys with female hairstyles. Ironically the feminine thing doesn’t work for any other ethnicity but white either. Everyone else just gets made fun of or their ass beat.

    Well after being married to Gwenyth Paltrow he is probably desperate for anything that doesn’t smell like smugness, Patchuli, Yoga Mats, and Vegan Soy Facial Scrub

    …meow, hiss, hiss rwooowwwwww…another example of how a perfectly charming appreciation of a good looking and talented young man by a famous contemporary is turned into a nasty slugfest by bitchy bloggers…get real lives…and more to the point, who cares what you think…

  • Zodinsbrother

    You know what really depresses me, it’s the degree to which gay people on LGBT sites have bought in to the homophobic stereotype that we have to be bitchy.

    There is nothing wrong with scepticism or even a little cynicism but this posturing ia absurd.

  • OrchidIslander

    Queerty “mitches” (thank you Kevin Hart!) doing everything they can to keep the old tired stereotypes alive and well. Never once in all your slamming of Harry did it occur to you that Chris Martin’s frank admission of same sex attraction was refreshing, open, honest and a benefit to us. It’s those kind of comments from secure in themselves celebrities that will help speed same-sex equality by not making it such a big deal.

    Unfortunately, the mitchiness and contempt that some gays reserve for for each other feels like the one step back after the two steps forward.

  • Doughosier

    Harry is a beauty, no doubt about that.

  • Billy Budd

    Guys, his comments were POSITIVE. You should be commending his attitude, whether he did it only for the press or got a real hard on for the boy.

  • Cam


    Well you obviously care what everybody else thinks since you came in here hysterically freaking out.

    If you didn’t care you wouldn’t have posted that response.

  • calista

    That’s an adorable picture of Harry from a couple of years ago, but you should really put up a more recent photo of him to illustrate why he’d turn a straight guy. He looks crazy hot these days.

  • BJ McFrisky

    I feel confident it was Gwyneth who drove him to appreciate young boys.
    Maybe in the future Martin will have a “conscious unattraction” to Styles.

  • Cam

    @BJ McFrisky:

    BJ, you and I agree on something. Please check the temperature in hell. ;)

  • tallskin2

    It’s a british thing, you yankees. You wouldn’t understand

    we brits are shagging each other all the damned time

  • rand503

    Please, you were not looking at his “haircut”. You’re looking at his hair, all luxurious and flowing.

    And I bet you wanted to run your hands through it!

  • MoufOfKhaos

    The one with absolutely no sex appeal from the group gets pushed the most by their PR :C

  • Mikah

    Yeah,Harry is a cutie.
