Have you ever dreamed of travelling with One Direction as a crew member on their current European tour? Well, now you can make your dreams into reality—kind of.
One Direction’s musical director Jonathan Shone tweeted a link to behind-the-scenes video of behind-the-scenes video containing footage of the tour’s crew hopping from city to city with the boys.
Shone tweeted the video on the last night of the tour:
Last night of the tour! getting ready!! great times. youtube.com/watch?v=EHWYkN…

The video is packed with fun silly moments and the crew hanging out with the members of the boy band.
The video makes you wish you had the job of this crew member who got to travel Europe with our favourite British boyband. Dreams can come true, right?
If you are going to watch any Harlem Shake video, it should be this one. While it’s least favourite viral trend, One Direction makes it bearable. Basically, One Direction can make just about anything cool.
It’s fun just to imagine how crazy Harry Style’s hair probably got after he did the “Harlem Shake.” The second best thing about this video, is this Directioner’s comment:
The guys of One Direction love to make silly faces, say ridiculous things, and most of all, show off the most endearing awkward dance moves. I think it’s time to copyright the dance moves of the “Kiss You” video, and give them official names. Lets start, shall we? (source)
The “sexy shimmy”
The “confused Rebecca Black”
The angry mashed potato
The “push away the fake snow”

Taylor Swift went on the most adorable date with One Direction barely a week into her rumoured relationship with Harry Styles. They all went to New York’s Hudson Hotel after 1D’s show at Madison Square Garden for KARAOKE!!
You’d think after singing all day they’d be sick of it by the evening (or at least want to preserve their voices) but we’re not complaining… We ARE, however, a little envious at the lucky crowd that got to witness the budding love of youth and get a free show from the singers. (I can’t imagine singing in front of them if I was there though!)
Some Directioners are already shipping Harry and Taylor (Haylor) but the 1D singer seems to be pretty happy. He tweeted about the night:
According to AZ Central, here’s what they sang:
“Islands in the Stream” — Taylor and Harry
“I Want It That Way” — One Direction full-band
“Ice Ice Baby” — Taylor & 1D Read more…
While One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful” tells you you’re GORG, their new track “Little Things” will make you believe it. In their new track they list all the quirky details about you they can’t get enough of you — probably the very things you don’t love about yourself.
They love the freckles on your cheeks, the crinkles by your eyes when you smile and the dimples in your back. ”I’m in love with you and all these little things,” they sing. Turns out, “One Thing” is composed of many “Little Things.”

In “awful” One Direction news, Liam Payne confirmed breaking up with his girlfriend of two years, Danielle Peazer. Rumours are flying about who Payne will date next, including fellow X-Factor singer Leona Lewis. Umm, I don’t want to break any more hearts there, but she might be a tad out of Liam’s age range (19 vs. 27? Likely).
The staff at ANDPOP are debating about who Liam should date next. We found some perfect candidates on Twitter — Liam himself even called them all “babes!”
Here are five 1D babes we think Liam could potentially date next:
Pure sadness. This Liam-lover opted out of talking to their potential hubby and did homework instead. We think that if they’re so dedicated to their studies, they’d be TOTALLY loyal to Liam.
Okay directioners, it’s official. Take deep breaths and prepare yourself for all this goodness. One Direction’s second album Take Me Home has an official release date —November 13 but if you haven’t already noticed, you’re looking at their new album artwork!
The boy’s new first single is titled “Live While We’re Young,” which we found out about in last week’s video announcement. You can officially store your own copy of the single on October 1 in Canada/US and September 30 in the UK. “Live While We’re Young” will premiere on radio stations worldwide starting Monday, September 24 so don’t forget to get those requests in — you’ll be able to jam out in your car. Duh.
During the major 1D announcement this morning, Niall said: “As you know, our new album is going to be called Take Me Home and it is available to pre-order from the 3rd of September at midnight.” We are totally looking forward what they have in store. They’ve been working with a handful of first-class producers and writers such as Rami Yacoub, Carl Falk and Savan Kotecha (wrote and produced “What Makes You Beautiful), Ed Sheeran, Dr. Luke and many more.
With the guys debut album Up All Night, and their second album now titled Take Me Home, fans couldn’t help but tweet the band some naughty suggestions. Really though, what do you expect from this fan base?
Watch the HUGE announcement here:
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Ryan Gosling is set to direct a film which he wrote and John Mayer ends it with Katy Perry via e-mail.
HIT: Ryan Gosling to direct his own film
He can sing, he can act and now he’ll direct his own film! Titled How to Catch a Monster, the flick will be lead by his Drive co-star Christina Hendricks. She’ll presumably play Billy, the single mother of two, who with her sons gets sucked into a fantasy underworld that they must escape from. Gosling also wrote the script and it’s scheduled to start filming next spring. Perfect Gosling is just perfect.
MISS: John Mayer dumped Katy Perry over e-mail
According to US Weekly, Perry found out her short summer fling with Mayer was over via e-mail. He probably thinks he’s hot shit because he cut his hair. I wouldn’t worry too much though, Perry fans. She’ll probably use this heartbreak to write another great hit.
HIT: Nick Jonas to co-judge with Demi Lovato on the X-Factor
I know the Jonas Brothers and Demi have always been on good terms ever since she and Joe split, but it’s always nice to see it reaffirmed. The youngest Jonas musician will be joining Demi on the X-Factor as a judge. While it’s not the American Idol gig he was reportedly looking for, X-Factor will at least deliver competition experience he was looking for.

It was a hard couple of days for Directioners, most commonly known as hard-core fan girls for One Direction. One of the members Zayn Malik had enough of the hate he’d been receiving online and decided to delete his Twitter account, which obviously caused one huge frenzy. The majority of the comments were based on his relationship with Perrie Edwards. Before he decided to leave, he sent out a message to his followers:
Instantly, 1D fans were trending messages for Zayn to come back. Thankfully he looked past all the negative tweets and realized that Directioners could not live through this “crisis.” Especially since more than half of them dedicate their whole life to the boys, which include tweeting the heart throb daily.
In better news, if you didn’t wake up extra early this morning to hear the boy’s big announcement, it’s that their new single “Live While We’re Young,” will be on presale at midnight. The song will be their first single off their new album coming out this November. By the looks of the video, they’re still goofing around and enjoying what they do best. Who knows, maybe their new song will sound a bit different from what they’ve done in the past to match their new looks. Are you excited?
Watch the video here:
With the help of Louis and Zayn of One Direction, the boys pranked their other band members: Harry, Niall, and Liam thinking that a Nickelodeon producer (who was actually an actor) was going into labour. Don’t worry peeps, her stomach was just a fake Hollywood-styled bump that looks totally believable! Before the prank started, Zayn told the cameras, “We’re going to have a bit of fun with it and try and see what their natural reactions are.”
Everything seemed to be cool until the woman was on the couch shouting, “Aghhh! I’m hurting, the baby is coming right now!” Harry Styles was the first to jump to the rescue. ”Why is no one here?” “Can we get some help?” Liam got on the phone with the actor’s “husband” while Louis ran off pretending to call his mom.
When the guys were told that they had just been pranked, Zayn and Louis jumped up for a high-five as the others looked very confused. It’s obvious to say Harry believed this whole thing the most out of the guys and we loved it! “I was actually thinking, this is gunna be a great press story; One Direction delivers baby,” said Harry.
Can we just take a moment to notice Niall who was on the other couch,with not a care in the world? Do you think he knew this was a prank to begin with?
Admit it. Of course you are a fan of One Direction. The Key of Awesome put together a hilarious parody of one of the hottest UK boy bands. You can’t turn on the radio without belting out, “Baby you light up my world like nobody else.” Deal with it.
The parody video looks very similar to the real version, from the beach scenery, the preppy outfits, catching their eye on a pretty girl and finishing off their look with the perfect hair (some involving wigs) because they weren’t born with those awesome locks. The only thing that can stir some things up are the lyrics. “Baby we make real bands go home and slit their wrists / We are the seventh sign of the apocalypse.” Now just because they were discovered on the X factor and put together by Simon Cowell…
We recently saw another parody of WMYB for grown-up teenage girls, but realistically they shouldn’t have to live in secrecy anymore. At least we know one of them doesn’t mind cougars.
“You don’t know, Oh oh. You don’t know we’re terrible”
Whether you’re too embarrassed to admit it or not, whenever One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful” comes on the radio, it is your JAM. Speakers up, windows down and singing your heart out. I mean, what’s better than a group of five hotties from the UK? Well unless you’ve got the, “I’m just too old for this” feeling. Basically if you feel like an outcast in their fandom, this song is probably perfect for you and will make you feel a little bit better about being a cougar.
Jest made a hilarious (but accurate) parody for “One Direction’s Song For Grown-Up Teenage Girls.” Some may argue and say that the average age of directioners are already in there teenage days but it’s okay for you older ones, no need to live in secrecy anymore.
The video starts off with a woman acting very hesitant on her laptop. She must of been on iTunes downloading their newest single or concert film. Then five look-a-like members of the band pop up. I gotta says, the wigs and suspenders really do it. The lyrics go on to: “Time to come clean, know what I mean/ You have the musical taste of a tween. It’s OK (oh-oh), it’s OK to like this song.”
If you’re a diehard fan and love them unironically like us, don’t miss their latest video diary. The boys also released a new video diary, capturing moments on set from photo shoots, red carpets, in the studio, horsing around and being the pranksters that they are.
When you’re a professional fangirl, you know EVERYTHING there is to know about your favourite artist or band. When it comes to One Direction fans, they even go as far as stalking them on their hotel floor and aren’t ashamed about it.
This guy quizzed some girls who were eagerly waiting in line for a sold out concert later that day. He thought it would be HILAR to ask them trivia questions, but the catch was to make sure he told them they were wrong. Of course, the girls were completely confident in their answers cause c’mon, who doesn’t know the exact time Harry Styles entered the world? Not only was he called “the worst fan ever,” he got tons of dirty looks and complaints! Don’t tell me!
There was lots of Twitter hate going down last night on Liam Payne’s girlfriend, dancer Danielle Peazer. It was coming from a select group of ‘fans’ who were sending Payne nasty messages on Twitter.
The 1D singer was disgusted by the comments about his girlfriend and responded with a tweet: ”Just as I start to like twitter again I see the nasty side of people who like to dislike somebody who makes me … Me.” He also wrote: ”#SometimesIHateTwitter when it becomes a place to abuse people who uve never met never did anything to you but you still choose to be cruel.”
He continued: “and to all those people who are going to be dicks and tweet her horrible stuff now just because i mentioned it… boring grow up.”
He mentioned he appreciates all the people who are nice to his girlfriend and that it makes him smile when Payne shares the nice messages people send her.
Eventually the hashtag #WeLoveDanielle started trending, hopefully making the conscience of those horrible jerks kick in.
People, online bullying — bullying of ANY form — is sooo uncool.
On to happier things. Let’s all salivate and watch Harry Styles shirt being ripped off by his bandmates around 2:09, during a Chicago show.
Watch it here:
One Direction stopped by the Today Show and revealed some very important information about who the most romantic member of the band is. I’m not all that surprised to hear it was a two way tie between Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson, who both unfortunately have GFs. Both Harry Styles and Louis chose Liam as the most romantic, while Zayn Malik and Liam voted for Louis. As for the indecisive Niall, he said either one of them.
Award for shyest member of the band went to Zayn Malik (d’aw) and Harry Styles is not surprisingly the biggest attention-whore.
I don’t think interviewer Jenna Bush Hager realized how envious all the screaming girls outside were of her, though she did start blushing when the guys joked she was a cougar.
Best moment of the interview (other than outing the romantics of the group) was when the band demonstrated their poor dance moves, which included the fist pump and something they cleverly dubbed the sprinkler.
Watch it here:
Pretty much everyone in the audience of One Direction’s new video for “More Than This” is blubbering, screaming, swaying their arms, having an emotional breakdown or all of the above. Probably because they believe the guys of One Direction are personally speaking to them when they sing: “Would you lay down in my arms and rescue me? / Cause we are, the same / You saved me, when you leave it scarred again.” SWOON.
One Direction’s new music video is taken directly from Up All Night: The Live Tour. Naturally, it starts out with the first-verse-man Liam Payne singing on a couch in a red velvet blazer. Then, each of his bandmates take their turn at serenading you — all with very serious faces. Well, love is a very serious subject for these guys.
What do you think of the video?
Watch it below:
We know the real reason you’re watching this promo for One Direction’s behind the scenes DVD (apart from your undying love) is to see Harry Styles strip down to his Tommy Hilfiger briefs. Come on don’t lie.
The teaser is for their upcoming “Up All Night — The Live Tour” DVD which is out on May 28. It captures intimate moments from their tour, including Harry running around backstage with his bandmates preparing for a show, in this case, that means shaving his legs. “No one wants to see that,” says Liam, though we’re sure you beg to differ. Meanwhile, Louis looks cozy in his fluffy moose slippers and plaid pyjamas.
Watch it here:
One Direction has definitely surpassed the requisites to achieve boy band legend status. Millions of Twitter followers: check. Number one album: check. Flashed by girls: check. Stalked: check, check, check.
But according to Paul McCartney, they haven’t achieved the success experienced by the Beatles… yet, at least.
“There are so many bands who all get called ‘the next Beatles.’ Suddenly it puts an awful lot of pressure on them to be the next Beatles,” he said on ITV’s Daybreak.
He added:”Oasis were ‘the next Beatles’ once if you remember. It’s a pressure, because suddenly you’ve got to live up to all the things that we did, and it was a different time. So let’s just call them ‘the next terrific band.’”
Do you agree or disagree? You’ll remember it wasn’t too long ago andPOP made the Beatles’ comparison in our interview with the guys. [Source]
