After admitting that he finds singer/actor Harry Styles “hot,” High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, star Joshua Bassett is addressing his sexuality. Kind of. The 20-year-old told fans in a Tues. May 11 Twitter post that “My entire life people have told me my sexuality. People have shamed me for things they know nothing about.”
He also added, “it’s okay to still be figuring out who you are.” It has left fans confused, with one asking, “is he coming out or just showing support? I’m lost.” Joshua Bassett was previously linked in a supposed love triangle involving co-star Olivia Rodrigo, 18, and fellow Disney darling Sabrina Carpenter, 22.
The “hot Harry” controversy began in a May 10 interview with Clevver News, when Joshua Bassett said of Harry Styles, 27 that he’s a very classy man, just a nice guy who doesn’t say too much, but when he talks it matters, and is very cool. “Who doesn’t think Harry Styles is cool?” he said.
But then Joshua Bassett took it a step further with his compliments, saying “Also, he’s hot. He’s very charming too. He’s lots of things,” then caught himself and said half jokingly, “I guess this is also my coming-out video.”
