Harry Styles and Kendall Jenner have always had amazing chemistry, and although there has never been an official announcement from either camp that, yes, they were a couple, the rumours of a romance have been swirling for years. And the two of them make it so easy to speculate, especially when they flirt and giggle so unabashedly in front of everyone, as they did Tuesday night on The Late Late Show With James Corden (weeknights at 12:37ET on CTV).
Harry was filling in as guest host for his old friend James Corden, and decided to treat Kendall to a game of “Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts.” We’ll never understand why celebrities keep agreeing to sit before the Lazy Susan of exquisite torture like this (a salmon smoothie? A giant water scorpion? Cod sperm?), but agree to it they do. For once, the grossness of this game took a backseat to the undeniable chemistry between Harry and Kendall that positively sizzled. We all actually forgot about the nauseating nibbles when Kendall looked Harry dead in the eyes and said, “I’m dying to know this. Which songs on your last album were about me?”
Gasping with embarrassment, Harry immediately clasped his hand over his eyes. We’ll take that to mean all of them, Mr. Styles.
Harry, clearly mortified at the prospect of having to reveal to his (alleged) former flame all the heartfelt lines he sang about her, decided to go in one direction and one direction only: eating cod sperm. The man even bibbed himself and took both utensils firmly in hand. He may have hesitated a bit to whine, “What are we doing?!” He also reminded us of his comedic chops as he pondered, “To spit or swallow, that is the question.”
This amazing moment in Harry-Kendall ‘shipping was bookended by a gaggle of other delightfully fun and flirty moments, like when Kendall hesitated to admit which star had slid into her Insta DMs, Harry, in the voice of a jealous boyfriend, bellowed, “WHO IS HE?” Or when Kendall began to ask a question about his former 1D bandmates and Harry reacted by downing a giant water scorpion. Why are these two not together?
A few years ago, Harry gave an interview to Rolling Stone where he talked about dedicating his last album to a former girlfriend, but he stopped short of naming her, despite the rumours that it was Kendall. Saying the album was a tribute to an unnamed ex, he explained, “Sometimes you want to tip the hat, and sometimes you just want to give them the whole cap… and hope they know it’s just for them.” Rumours of Harry and Kendall canoodling have been around since 2013 when they were first spotted together, and reignited again in 2016. Earlier this year, they were photographed together at the Met Gala, laughing and beaming at each other, and a few eyebrows were raised. Are they or aren’t they?
At this point, who knows? Maybe making each other down bull penis and cod sperm will be the trick that makes them official, and we would be so here for it.
