The singer revealed that “never” speaking publicly about “life away from work” has become a positive part of his life in the public eye. “There’s always going to be a version of a narrative, and I think I just decided I wasn’t going to spend the time trying to correct it or redirect it in some way,” Harry told Rolling Stone in an August 2022 cover story.
“Sometimes people say, ‘You’ve only publicly been with women,’ and I don’t think I’ve publicly been with anyone,” he argued. “If someone takes a picture of you with someone, it doesn’t mean you’re choosing to have a public relationship or something.”

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,” Harry explained.
