According to the legendary LGBT icon Boy George, one mate from One Direction might be gay while all of them are definitely bisexual.

In an interview with United Kingdom's Daily Star, the 52-year-old infamous androgynous weighed in on the British boy band's sexuality.




“The odds are one of One Direction must be gay," he said. "I think everyone is a bit bisexual deep down, so the odds are they are probably all bisexual. They’re rock stars so it’s what you’d expect, isn’t it? I’d be disappointed if they weren’t. Tattoos don’t make you butch. Look at me.”

George isn't the only one with this belief, former 'NSYNC member and gay advocate Lance Bass also thinks there is a homosexual amongst the 1D crew. Previously Bass was reported saying, "statistically speaking, one probably is [gay]."




George's statement is coming after Harry Styles was linked to bandmate Louis Tomlinson and openly gay Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw.




In the September 2013 issue of British GQ, Styles confronted the rumors when he said, "Bisexual? Me? I don't think so. I'm pretty sure I'm not."




George also admitted to not really carrying for One Direction after Liam Payne refused to take a picture with his niece at the BRIT Awards in February. This led to George having a war of words with Payne and 1D fans via Twitter.




“I wouldn’t know who One Direction were if they fell on my head,” George said. “I’m older than them, they should treat me with respect. I blocked all the band, I couldn’t be bothered to hear anything they said but I couldn’t help winding up their fans."




Despite almost being a senior citizen, George confessed the thrill he got out of going back and forth with 1D groupies on Twitter.




“One tweeted me saying: ‘My mum says you’re a horrible old has-been.’ I tweeted back saying: ‘Your mum’s probably an old, fat ugly b***h,'" George said. "I was having such a laugh, fighting with One Dir­ection’s fans all night. I did say some vile things, I had too much sugar. But I really enjoyed it.”
