In case you forgot (though we鈥檙e not sure how you could), TONIGHT is the night when Harry Styles will begin his 鈥渞esidency鈥 for The Late Late Show With James Corden, centered on promoting his new album. With many speculating that the album is based on his short-lived, back-in-the-day relationship with Taylor Swift, excitement levels are high, indeed. Everything about the sitch is totally buzz-worthy, but there鈥檚 something else that folks are talking about when it comes to Mr. Styles (ASIDE from his killer, heel-friendly fashion sense, of course!): the unexpected announcement the 23-year-old just made about his sexuality.

Though he鈥檚 rumored to be seeing a new lady, Styles recently addressed questions about how he identifies when it comes to his sexual preference(s) during an interview with the UK鈥檚 Sun, and it wasn鈥檛 as cut and dry as you might expect. The 鈥淪ign of the Times鈥 singer admitted that he doesn鈥檛 feel the need to label himself. 鈥淣o, I鈥檝e never felt the need to really. No,鈥 he revealed. 鈥淚 don鈥檛 feel like it鈥檚 something I鈥檝e ever felt like I have to explain about myself.鈥

He added, 鈥淏eing in a creative field, it鈥檚 important to be 颅progressive. People doing stuff like that [i.e. Miley Cyrus opening up about being pansexual] is great鈥 everyone should just be who they want to be.鈥 The ex-1D-er continued, 鈥淚t鈥檚 tough to justify somebody having to answer to someone else about stuff like that.鈥

No need to justify, Harry; fans love ya the way you are!
