The 5 Gayest Things About One Direction's New Video


By Samantha Henderson

Gay or not, the boy band members showcase drag and stereotypes in the video for 'Best Song Ever'

One Direction has not exactly been impervious to the inevitable gay rumors that every boy band has faced. In fact, even in the past week they have managed to stir up more material for gay news stories than even Lance Bass did when he came out.

There has been the fan fiction featuring a romance between Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson, Styles's pro-gay response to the Westboro Baptist Church's homophobic protest of the band's concert, and let's not forget their fondess for twerking, Styles's planting a kiss on Zayn Malick's cheek in their perfume commercial, and Andy Cohen referring to them as "twinks." Even Lance Bass has said that, statistically speaking, one of the members is most likely gay (He would know). 

Whether or not there's any of the rumors, the band continues their group bromance and doesn't seem to care all that much what people say, so much so that in their newest video one of them Malick dons drag and Liam Payne takes a turn as a Richard Simmons-esque (Read: stereotypically gay) choreographer. They're not exactly complex or deep portrayals (Ok, not at all.), but there's something to be said for them not shying away from behavior that will definitely still draw rumors. 

And just so you won't miss one gay moment, here are the top five in the 6-minute video.
