Harry Styles is Rolling Stone's first ever global cover star.  Harry discussed his tour, two new films, Olivia Wilde, sexuality and more.

Harry admitted he's 'had his own journey figuring out his sexuality'.

The singer and actor admits he's thinking about having children.

Harry discusses not wanting those close to him to get hurt because of fame, reveals he's in therapy and says he's looking forward to having a break so he can finally watch "Love Island".

He credits his stream of roommates — friends, collaborators — He says, “I really would’ve struggled if I’d done the whole thing by myself,” mirroring the “Harry, you’re no good alone” lyric from “As It Was.”

On therapy: “I committed to doing it once a week. I felt like I exercise every day and take care of my body, so why wouldn’t I do that with my mind?” One feeling he needed to shed was shame, the kind of shame that comes from having your sex life scrutinized while you’re still just trying to make sense of it. Over the years, he learned to stop apologizing for it. He learned he could be vulnerable in private while still protecting it from the public.

Harry points out how silly he finds some of the arguments about how he may identify to be (sexually): “Sometimes people say, ‘You’ve only publicly been with women,’ and I don’t think I’ve publicly been with anyone. If someone takes a picture of you with someone, it doesn’t mean you’re choosing to have a public relationship or something.”

On his fans: More intense and jarring was a corner of Styles’ fandom that has made fun of Olivia Wilde’s dancing or made lengthy Twitter threads and TikTok videos canceling her for bad or insensitive jokes made a decade ago. If Styles is already held up to a high standard, his potential partners are held to an unreachable one for some of his fans. Styles is not the most online person — he uses Instagram to look at plants and architecture posts, has never had the TikTok app, and calls Twitter “a sh*tstorm of people trying to be awful to people” — but he’s still aware of how those small, toxic corners of the internet are treating the people closest to him. “That obviously doesn’t make me feel good,” he says.

While Harry takes comfort in knowing his whole fandom is not like that, he still wonders about how to respond when the noise gets too loud. “It’s obviously a difficult feeling to feel like being close to me means you’re at the ransom of a corner of Twitter or something. I just wanted to sing. I didn’t want to get into it if I was going to hurt people like that.”
