Queer Eye‘s Karamo Brown has spoken about introducing Harry Styles to the magic of Grindr.

Appearing on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Wednesday (July 31), the Queer Eye Fab Five opened up about their new-found friendship with the former One Direction singer.

Styles was spotted doing karaoke with the Queer Eye cast in Japan in February, where they were filming an upcoming spin-off.

Bobby Berk said: “Harry was absolutely lovely, super sweet guy, super chill… who else could you ask for as a better karaoke partner?”

Karamo Brown teased: “I can tell you this… one of the people that was with Bobby and I there, taught Harry, showed him Grindr.

“He had never seen Grindr before, it was his first time.

“It was kind of cute that this straight guy was like, there’s an app where you can just find a date? I thought it was really cute.”

Responding to the description of the ‘dating’ app, Tan France added: “A date? A ‘date’!”

Queer Eye Japan specials will celebrate different cultures

The four-episode Queer Eye: We’re in Japan! season will see the Fab Five forging relationships with people from different backgrounds and cultures.

It’s unclear whether Styles will have a cameo the show itself, or if he was simply dropping in on the cast while on tour.

However, Styles has made no secret of his active support of LGBT rights on his world tour, flying a rainbow flag prominently on stage at many of the stops.

He has also heavily hinted at his own fluid sexuality in his lyrics, making a high-profile donation to the UK’s oldest LGBT+ charity London Friend, which provides counselling and support to those in the queer community.

Speaking to PinkNews about the upcoming specials previously, Karamo Brown said: “You realise very quickly that if you give people the space and permission to express what they’re feeling, sometimes you don’t have to say the words.

“There were some times where I would literally just sit and look at someone, and they would tell me they had never had anyone looking at them in the eyes at all. It opened up a slew of great emotion that kept pouring out.

“I didn’t have any issue with the language barrier at all because the language that I was speaking with was love and empathy.”
