One Direction was taunting us everyday with the many countdowns to their new music video “Little Things” and my head was about to explode in anticipation. It’s finally here and #LittleThingsOnVEVO is already trending on Twitter.
The guys were pretty practical with the music video too, filming it in a recording studio as they casually sing and look adoringly into the camera. Overall, the video is pretty low key. It was shot in black and white and has a simple theme, which makes sense considering it’s a slower ballad. This way, we really get to focus on the message of the song (that you’re BEAUTIFUL) and their ridiculously good-looking profiles.
Also, how bout these gifs from magnificent-mofo, huh?

The December issue of Vogue U.K just got dreamier. The guys of One Direction are the stars of the issue, featuring supermodel Edie Campbell. Scratch that, the real stars of the photo shoot are the suits, ties, and varsity jackets that the guys wear.
We should give an epic slow clap to the stylist behind this genius wardrobe. It’s a cool change from the guys’ everyday outfits that are a bit on the preppy side. No matter what, they’ll always be beautiful.
Here are some photos from the Vogue U.K December issue:
These personalized varsity jackets have me swooning.
Let’s just appreciate Zayn’s “the think” pose. Honourable mention to Liam.
Niall. Fail. (I still love you.)
We know by now that directioners are
obsessed in love with One Direction’s latest single “Little Things,” but we didn’t think that these fans would produce such gold. The comments for the lyric video are absolutely hilarious. I thought my inner fangirl was bad until I read through the pages of comments. And by pages, I mean novel.
While it’s true that most of the comments are hilarious, a few are quite serious. I suggest that any 1D haters out there read through what the fans have to say. The message of the song has changed lives for the better. If that isn’t a reason to love One Direction, then I don’t know what is… other than Niall’s cute face.
Here are the 15 best reactions to the “Little Things” lyric video:
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Shailene Woodley might play the iconic Mary Jane Watson in the upcoming Amazing Spiderman sequel and Niall Horyn needs surgery after a brutal squirrel attack.
HIT: Shailene Woodley may join The Amazing Spiderman 2 cast as Mary Jane Watson
According to The Hollywood Reporter, actor Shailene Woodley has been offered to play the iconic redhead Mary Jane Watson in The Amazing Spiderman sequel. This may be the second best thing to happen to her this week after ABC announced they’ll be cancelling The Secret Life of an American Teenager. Since her stunning performance in the George Clooney film, The Descendants, proves she’ll be a worthy third piece in the romantic love triangle between Andrew Garfield’s web-slinging Peter Parker and Emma Stone’s brainy Gwen Stacey.
MISS: One Direction’s Niall Horan gets attacked by squirrels
One Direction’s Niall Horan recently been spotted on crutches. The 1D member told the U.K.’s the Sun Newspaper that the injury was the result of being attacked by a squirrel in a London park. Niall will reportedly have to undergo surgery to fix the ligaments he tore in his leg because of the furry attack. Niall’s injury just adds to my now rational fear of the urban creatures.
HIT: The Mythbusters prove that Jack Dawson didn’t have to die at the end of Titanic
The guys at Mythbusters have finally put the widely debated Titanic dilemma to a rest. Through the use of science, Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt Bukater could’ve lived happily ever after if only she made some room on that floating piece of wood. This startling revelation has 1) made me a smug person who wants to yell, “I TOLD YOU SO” to everyone who has ever disagreed with me, 2) given me another to cry at the end of the movie, and c) given me the conviction to boo at James Cameron if I ever come across the famous director.

Let’s face it. One Direction fans are extremely passionate.
Dubbing themselves Directioners and screaming at just the sound of 1D’s music, this fandom has even led trainee musicologist Josh Haddow to study what kind of person listens to a group of young men who sing incredibly catchy tunes.
And based on his research, it appears that fans are incredibly devoted. So much so, that they’re even willing to compare Zayn Malik to a religious figure like Ghandi.
But while Directioners appear to have good intentions, don’t EVEN DARE TO ASK about a romance between Harry and Louis. These fans are so defensive they will “literally punch you in the face” if you think it’s true.
I’m totally obsessed with One Direction too but I draw the line at wearing the band’s logo on my feet. These One Direction UGG boots are part of a new collection of 1D surf wear. The clothing line will also include flip-flops and shorts.
If your fangirl behaviour supersedes most others and you HAVE to have these boots for winter, they’re available at Between the Flags, a retailer in Australia. If you do buy them maybe you want to keep them on a shelf — a lot of fans might find them too precious to ruin!
Would you wear them?
I have to say One Direction’s “Live While We’re Young” music video is one of my FAVES so far. I love the empowering message of the song, plus the guys genuinely look like they’re having a good time as they usually do, playing outside with their friends (who are VERY lucky to have them).
Donned in preppy plaids, blazers and collared shirts, the guys mess around outside, running in plastic bubbles on the lake, driving fast in a giant jeep and dancing at a neon glowstick dance party.
I’m inclined to dance to the track stat but I’m at work and I don’t know how my co-workers will take to my intense hip thrusting. I’m sure they’d join in if the sound wasn’t blocked by my headphones.
Watch the video here:
Anyway, here are my favourite moments, presented in gifs:
Look how silly they are!!
Let’s just revel in their silliness for a second. The guys wake up in a giant tent with perfect bedhead and literally bust out of it onto the ground. But don’t worry, they won’t let the fall spoil their day. [1d-muses]
Do we need a reason to explain why this is our favourite gif? [niallhoranintanktops]

Simon Cowell did One Direction fans a total solid by telling Demi Lovato to keep her hands of Niall Horan, because 1) he’s “pure” and 2) he’s obviously OURS. I mean, the two would be adorable together but we’re still holding out for our chance with the Irish member of One Direction because it will happen, right? RIGHT?
While Demi assures him in this X-Factor promo that she’s not dating anyone for an entire year, Simon doesn’t seem to believe her.
Niall and Demi reignited rumors that they’re romantically involved, when they were spotted after this year’s VMAs at Harry Morton’s Pink Taco in Century City. Just before the awards show he told Access Hollywood that Lovato is his celebrity crush. This is the second time the pair have had to dodge rumors since they were rumored to be involved at the beginning of summer.
While we’d hate to see Niall go off the market, Demi and him see like a good match!
Watch it here:
Anyone who’s been following Justin Bieber’s Twitter feed (because DUH! who isn’t?!), has probably noticed the photo frenzy the singer has been going on for the last 24 hours. From making a return to Instagram to posting snapshots of moments in his life, it’s safe to say we all feel a little bit closer to the Biebs himself.
HURRAH! The Biebs has returned to Instagram!
While this photo is pretty standard in terms of Instagram photos, the teen singer was met with an overwhelming amount of comments saying “You’re back!!!!” after his six month hiatus from the photo-taking social network. But despite the fact that the Biebs is quite active on Twitter, it has been a painful time for all of us who have checked our Instagrams everyday for a possible Bieber update. But alas! He has returned!! It’s been way too long Justin Bieber. Never leave us again.
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:
There are a few things I can tell you after watching the One Direction promo for the VMAs. Most notable, is that it’s pretty darn cheesy, but cheesy in a good way. For one thing, a good portion of the ad is shot in slow motion, which allows your lingering gaze to settle on Harry’s messy-chic hair or consider Niall’s generally playful nature (jumping on Liam’s back, mock-punching Louis).
Then we get individual shots of each of them looking dashing enough to distract your eyes from the random, animated background behind them. The script isn’t all that engaging, but we’re like “kay whatever” because we’re not really watching for the script right?
One Direction will perform at the 2012 MTV VMAs on Sept. 6.

The JoBros are back
Kevin, Nick and Joe Jonas are coming back into our lives! Last night, the trio hit up their fans on Ustream where they gave them a sneak peek to their upcoming album as well as their new app you can download. Are you excited for their comeback or totally over them?
Niall Horan parties it up at V Fest
One Direction’s Niall Horan hit up V Fest, with his party pals while being slightly undercover with those shades. Seems like even though Caroline Flack’s romance with Harry Styles is over, there’s still some friendship going on with another member of 1D who joined along for the fun.
Demi turns the big 2-0!
Yesterday Ms. Demi Lovato turned 20-years-old. I don’t know about you, but it feels like forever until we finally get to watch X-Factor. I can’t wait to see how Demi interacts with Simon (we all know about Simon + Paula back in American Idol days). The 2 night X-Factor premiere starts September 12 & 13.
Snack time anyone? Read more…
It’s pretty much a given that the boys of One Direction are a handsome bunch. With hundreds of girls all over the world wanting to steal a hug or a kiss with the British lads, one would think the One Direction craze would never die down.
But what happens when the good-looking young men grow old…say 50 or 60 years later? Do you think they would age as gracefully as George Clooney?
While it would be weird to think so long down the road, I really couldn’t help but wonder how to boys would look as older men. So with the help of the internet and a photo transformer, I found some digitally altered photos of the boys looking very aged.
It’s amazing what being the girlfriend of a One Directioner can get you. Most girls get a cheesy card and a soft pat on the
head back for their 20th birthday — jewelry if they’re lucky. But Eleanor Calder (that’s the girlfriend of Louis Tomlinson FYI) got a personal birthday message from Rihanna.
Rihanna’s relaxing in the Mediterranean right now but she took a break from lounging on a yacht to sing “Happy Birthday” to the Manchester University student.
Calder also got a few tweets today from Louis and a One Direction bandmate. Check them out below:
Louis Tomlinson: “A very happy birthday to my lovely girlfriend @eleanorjcalder. Love you lots and lots ?#happybirthdayeleanor,”
Niall Horan: “Happy birthday @EleanorJCalder have fun!”
One Direction’s Niall Horan arrived at Dublin’s airport Monday, where he was (obviously) greeted by tons of fans. I could only imagine the excitement and fan-girling going on amongst all the girls, but maybe Niall’s comment went a little too far.
As he passed through the group of girls he said to them: “Remember the last time I walked out here? You shower of c**ts!” Wait, did we hear that right? Celebs, let alone anyone these days should know that pretty much everyone owns a camera phone that can easily capture the moment. Being a teen heartthrob, millions of girls look up to you and can take anything you say completely literal. After Niall’s comment, he seemed to be completely cheerful, happily wishing one of the girls a happy birthday on camera, followed by a thumbs up!
It wasn’t long before the video went viral and there was mixed feelings all over Twitter. Niall tweeted: “really sorry if I caused any offence. It was just banter with fans who I think of more as mates.” He also said in another tweet: “but I understand that it’s not a word I should be using at all.”
We want to hear from you directioners, do you take offence to Niall’s comment or do you think it was out of humour from a slang term?
We already know One Direction’s Niall Horan is a little Irish stud because there’s photo and video proof of him acting all Doc Hollywood (before he moved to the humble small town) to the lucky ladies he meets. Niall was no different in a recent interview with radio host Kristin on The Bert Show.
The duo looked quite cozy, finding any way possible to hand hug and lock eyes. I’m sure he made her ovaries explode when he romantically kissed her hand like a right old gentlemen, except not really, because he’s a little young for her. Still, when given the opportunity to dispel the rumour of their soon-to-be romance, Niall flatly refused, insisting he has the hots for the
flight attendant radio host.
Rumours Niall and pal Harry Styles were able to dispel: that they are dead because, duh, they’re sitting right there so they’re obviously okay.
The duo also talked about the strangest things their fans have thrown on stage. Niall nearly broke his collarbone when a fan whipped an iPhone at him. Upon further inspection the guys realized it had a key and lude note attached to it. Still, I think Harry takes the win: one fan threw an unopened tampon right in his face. What the what?
Niall flirts with Kristin:

Most One Directioner’s have zoned-out daydreams about kissing their favourite member of the band, but recently the guys have taken to smooching each other. We’re not complaining, but we do feel semi-bad for Louis Tomlinson who’s been left out of all the kiss-fests so far.
First Zayn Malik laid a sloppy one on Liam Payne on the set of their “One Thing” video, causing the poor unsuspecting guy to jokingly faint of happiness (we would too — but for real).
Now Harry’s all up on Niall. Check them out singing “What Makes You Beautiful” around 0:35 when Harry shares the intimate moment with his bandmate — though to us it KINDA looks like he’s just whispering something. Apparently Larry Stylinson is so yesterday and it’s all about Narry now.
Was it a case of mistaken identity? Was that kiss actually meant for Louis the whole time? Harry’s got a lot of questions to answer.

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!
We’ve finally solved the eternal mystery of what in the world is cuter than the guys of One Direction. It was a seemingly puzzling riddle with an easy solution: One Direction as les babies. Look how ADORBZ they are. But quick question: why are both Liam Payne and Niall Horan holding toy guns? They’re like baby snipers.
Anyway, here are some other adorable baby photos of celebs like Robert Pattinson, Drake and Usher. Who do you think is the cutest?

Niall Horan doesn’t just have the sniffles. He’s SMOTHERED with a cold. In these extreme cases, resort to the German remedy: deep tissue massage, chamomile tea, spiced rum and bed. We’ll do him a solid and help with the first part.
Ummm why are the bristles of my toothbrush wet? Wtf used my toothbrush while I was sleeping!?!
