Word of new Harry Styles material riled everyone up so much that we didn't seem to pay close attention to the lyrics to one of the new tracks, "Medicine," where the former One Direction-er makes a not so subtle reference to his long-rumored bisexuality.
Now, in our defense, Styles sort of mumbled the lyrics to "Medicine" during the premiere of the cut during his recent European show, but the words to the track were much more prominent in his second performance. "The boys and the girls are here, I mess around with them/ And I'm okay with it. I'm coming down/ I figured out I kinda like it, and when I sleep I'm gonna dream of how you tasted," he sings during the cut. Listen to a clip of the track below!
"Medicine" arrived alongside another new (old) song called "Anna" as treats for fans from the 24-year-old singer to commemorate the almost one-year anniversary of his self-titled debut LP. "Two years ago I started making my very first album on my own, and you've been incredible through that whole process," he said. "I want to thank you for your support. We wrote a lot of songs for the album, and we chose ten, and we've never played this one before."
Just last year, Styles made headlines for talking about gay rights, stressing that they're fundamental and not political. "That doesn't feel like politics to me. I think stuff like equality feels much more fundamental. I feel like everyone is equal. That doesn't feel like politics to me," the pop star explained during a TV interview.
