Billy Porter had a strong response to the 2020 Vogue Cover of Harry Styles, which showed the singer in a dress. Billy Porter has again criticized Harry and the magazine for putting the As It Was singer on the cover. In a new interview with The Telegraph, he said that Harry got the job because he is “white and he’s straight.” The 53-year-old Pose star has spoken out about the same problem before.
What Did Billy Porter Say About Harry Styles?
The debate about Harry Styles’ 2020 Vogue cover has come back up, and Billy Porter, who is known for his vocal views on how LGBTQ+ people are shown in media, has once again shared his thoughts. In an interview with The Telegraph, Porter criticized Styles and the magazine for what he sees as culture appropriation and using the LGBTQ+ community to make themselves look better.
Billy, who is publicly gay, told The Telegraph in a new interview, “It’s not Harry Styles’ fault that he’s white, cute, straight, and fits into the system that way. I call out to the guards. Non-binary, and so on and so on and so on. No. It doesn’t make me feel good. You or your people are using my group to make yourself look better. You didn’t have to give anything up.”
What Did Billy Porter Say About Anna Wintour?
Billy also said that he had talked to Anna Wintour, the editor of Vogue, who had called out to him about how to move the case forward. He said, “That b***h asked me at the end, ‘How can we do better?'” I was so surprised by what happened that I didn’t say what I should have. Use your power as Vogue to help the leaders of this effort to remove gender from fashion be heard.
This isn’t the first time Billy has said something about Harry’s cover of Vogue. He had already said that he was upset about the cover and that he was the one who changed the way people talked about fashion and had to fight his whole life to get where he is now. He later told Harry he was sorry for using his name. Billy looked great in a Christian Sirirano velvet suit gown at the 2019 Academy Awards.
Harry, meanwhile, was recently spotted at London’s National Theatre, where paparazzi caught him getting close to actor Taylor Russell, feeding rumors that they were dating. Neither one of them has talked about their alleged relationship.
Harry’s Love on Tour came to an end in Italy last month. He posted a behind-the-scenes film of the tour on Instagram with the words, “To the most inspiring people I know. For now, goodbye. Love On Tour for all time.”
Billy Porter Apologizes to Harry Styles
Billy Porter is apologizing to Harry Styles because he said the singer looked bad on the cover of Vogue in November 2020. In an interview with the Sunday Times last month, Porter was talking about the state of nonbinary fashion when he brought up the fact that Styles was the first solo guy to be on the cover of Vogue, and he was wearing a dress.
Porter told the Sunday Times in October, “I started the conversation about nonbinary fashion, but Vogue still put Harry Styles, a straight white man, in a dress on their cover for the first time.” Now, the star of Pose is explaining what he meant when he talked about Styles. Porter said sorry to the “Watermelon Sugar” singer about the attack last week when he was on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
“Harry Styles, the first thing I want to say is that I’m sorry I said your name,” he said. “It doesn’t involve you. This is not a talk about you.”
“The conversation is actually going deeper than that,” Porter said. “It’s about the ways people of color are oppressed and left out of the culture,” says the author.
