Pop singer-songwriter Troye Sivan recently appeared as a guest on Kiss FM UK, where he told a hilarious story about his run in with Grammy winning musician Harry Styles.

Sivan told the story of meeting the singer at a Grammys after party, and welcoming him into a conversation he was having with several other people. Styles then politely excused himself to go to the restroom, to which Sivan responded that he also had to go so they could walk there together. Months later, Sivan now reflects that the bathroom trip may have been awkward for Styles.

Social Media Reactions

Many found the story hilariously endearing. Styles’ major stage presence and fame has often left other celebrities star struck. Some now hope for a collaboration between the two musicians.

Others assured Sivan in the comments that Styles likely did not judge him for their interaction. The singer has long cultivated an accepting and welcoming environment at his shows for fans, and in interviews.


Sivan’s New Album

Sivan most recently appeared in HBO’s controversial series “The Idol”, playing creative director and silenced songster Xander. The show revolves around a pop star’s fall in with a cult leader after the death of her mother and several career scandals.

He released singles “Rush” and “Got Me Started” to thunderous praise, with his full length third album “Something To Give Each Other” dropping soon. Sivan has long been hailed as a queer icon in music. The singer is openly gay, and frequently references the LGBTQ+ icons that have inspired his music through homages in music videos, samples, and more.

His new album will detail his single era, and experiences with LGBTQ+ nightlife. Sivan has not shied away from collaborating with other artists, and will soon drop another music video for his upcoming track “One Of Your Girls” starring Ross Lynch. Lynch got his start on Disney Channel’s “Austin and Ally”, and continues to find success in his band, The Driver Era.


Fans appeared to quickly forget about the awkward Styles encounter amid the surprise collaboration news.

Others theorize that Troye will don drag for the video, as a feminine figure is seen without showing her face.

Meanwhile, some applauded Lynch’s appearance as a form of allyship, as today is National Coming Out Day. Lynch is straight, and was previously in a relationship with his “The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina” costar Jaz Sinclair for several years.

Styles is yet to comment on bathroomgate, but Sivan is just dancing right through it.

“Something To Give Each Other” Drops October 13, and no other featured artists have been announced at this time.
