A couple of B-list celebrities forcing me to twerk in front of hundreds of teenagers sounds like a nightmare I would have. Weirdly, that might be something Harry Styles and I have in common.

The One Direction singer was a guest at last night’s Teen Choice Awards, safely ensconced in the audience after his band had opened the show, when hosts Darren Criss and Lucy Hale approached with a twerk request. Styles looked horrified, which made me respect him more than ever before, and muttered something about how he was wearing the wrong trousers, before he acquiesced and graced the world with the most diffident, British two seconds of twerking ever. Check it out.

Styles revealed some startling details about his sexual history in a candid interview with the British edition of GQ magazine, buckling under the interviewer’s questions about how many people he’s slept with. “It’s definitely less than 100,” Styles offers.

“I’m not doing this! You’re cornering me!” But he finally gives in, offering these details: “Two people. I’ve only ever had sex with two people. That’s my answer. Read from it what you will.” And if that’s not enough candor for one day, Styles addresses rumors that he’s bisexual. “Bisexual? Me? I don’t think so,” he says. “I’m pretty sure I’m not.”
