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?

So this video is pretty cute, if you like the whole ADORBZ One Direction boy band thing combined with a cute kid and two fans asking them questions. Which, of course, we DO. Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan sat down with a couple students courtesy of Z100 for an interview.
The three lucky ladies got to go right up close to the guys and shoot through a list of questions prepared by them, their friends and in one case one of their dads.
Niall talked about how the guys still get stage fright, not really before the show, but when they’re walking to the stage. ”Sometimes it’s quite a long walk from our dressing room so you can hear the crowd screaming and stuff and you get that butterflies in your stomach kind of feeling,” he said.
Louis also offered a not so relevant but totally fascinating point during one of the questions: ”We’re going to get a dog on the tour,” he said. “That has no relevancy to the question but we’re trying to persuade our amangement that we’re allowed to have a dog on tour with us.”
Also, watch out for 1:11 when Niall gives the most adorable smile of life.

Why does everyone insist on declaring their allegiance to either The Wanted or One Direction like it’s a pivotal rule of fandom? Can’t opposing boy bands and their fans just chill out, have dance offs to weird mashups and reward each other with dimpled smiles and pats on the back when one band is successful? Apparently, NOPE.
During an interview with Much Music, the guys of One Direction were asked to clear up a rumour that’s on everyone’s mind. Are they collaborating with
arch nemesis The Wanted?
Well, that’s a tricky question. Three of the guys said it was real while one said it was a rumour. So we’re not really sure what the actual answer is. Though personally, I’d love it if The Wanted popped out of the fog during one of 1D’s concerts and started some epic boy band duet.
Another question that’s on our minds: if you guys really don’t have a problem with each other, why don’t you hang out so the media can squash the rumour? Well, I can think of a million reasons: the dudes are all so busy travelling, touring, recording and aswering questions about opposing boy bands. Louis recommended the interviewer go ask The Wanted why they haven’t hung out but apparently their management FORBIDS interviewers from asking about that no-no topic.
I still feel like I’m missing part of the puzzle. Either that, or the guys are just so tired of questions about The Wanted that there’s nothing left to say.
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:
Harry Styles and Zayn Malik played Confession with Juice and revealed something embarrassing about themselves. Before you watch the videos, see if you can guess which statements below are true. I won’t ruin the answer, but I think the guys are just being cheeky.
1) … kisses every member of the band before they go to bed at night.
2) … doesn’t have any nipples.
3) … originally auditioned for The Wanted
1) … stole his look off Siva from The Wanted.
2) … is just a stage name. His real name is Lionel.
3) … has a crush on Caroline Flack.
Here are some things you might not have known about One Direction, revealed on Australia’s The Project.
1) Louis rejected a spontaneous kiss from a male reporter who approached him, grabbed his face and tried to lean in. “That was quite strange,” he said, demonstrating how he pushed the guy away.
2) Liam and Louis both have girlfriends, but the ladies are NOT under protective custody even though you’d think the entire world is jealous and plotting revenge.
3) If the guys were in a post-apocalyptic arena, the person they’d LEAST like to kill is Niall, which actually doesn’t surprise me at all. “I think he’d just like, curl up,” said Zayn.
4) One of Liam’s turtles ate the other turtles foot. He leads a crazy life.
5) Harry Styles was groped by the Today Show’s Karl Stefanovic and felt
Watch the interview below:
The Taylor Swift and Harry Styles dating rumor started after an interview in which 1D rib their bandmate about the country singer. Turns out, they exchanged numbers after meeting at the Kids Choice Awards in the U.S. ”We met in American and she’s very nice.” But he kept relatively mum when the Herald Sun interviewer prodded for more.
Styles and his bandmate Zayn Malik were both interviewed while in Sydney, Australia, where the clear focus was on dating.
Styles admitted in the interview that he has a thing for older woman. First there was Caroline Flack, the Xtra Factor co-host he dated, who happens to be 14 years older than him. Reportedly, when he was in Australia he was turned down by an engaged journalist named Elle Halliwell, who’s seven years older. Then this whole Taylor Swift thing? Well, she’s technically his senior too, even though she’s only 22.
Luckily for Styles, Simon Cowell didn’t impose a “love ban” on the members of the group. He and Malik made sure to shoot down those rumors.
“Not true. It would have been a bit rough,” Malik said. “We work hard and we play hard, so that would have been a bit rough.
”We’re normal guys. If we find a girl attractive… if you meet a girl you meet a girl. If you exchange numbers then whatevs..”
And as for the name change? The two guys say they’re not really sure what’s happening but they refuse to change the name One Direction just because another band in the U.S. has the same title.
“We’re not changing our name. We don’t know what’s going to happen but we’re not changing our name.” [Source]
Watch the interview below:
Usually when you’re asked to impersonate a friend it doesn’t go so well. You exaggerate their most defining characteristics and someone’s feelings get hurt. But the guys of One Direction have a pretty good sense of humor about it all and apparently love to make fun of each other’s accents.
During a show in Sydney Australia, they took a break from their set to answer questions. They answered a Twitter question from ForeverYoungg: “Your best impersonations of each other? .”
Everyone really wanted to impersonate Zayn (easy target?) but here’s how it went down: Niall imitates Louis, Zayn imitates Harry, Louis imitates Zayn, Liam imitates Niall. My fave is the impersonation of Harry, which pokes fun at his “I grew up in a bakery and now I’m auditioning” endearing story.
Watch the imitations below… if you can hear above the screaming.
One Direction’s Liam Payne shared his number one tip for prospective singers: don’t forget the lyrics. It sounds simple, but when you’re in front of 28,000 people that’s the main thing that’s running through your mind.
In a solo interview with VEVO, Payne said he originally tried out for X Factor at age 14, because his dad inspired him too. Though Simon Cowell said he was too young, he knew his hobby was turning into something more serious. Thankfully Simon was wrong, can you imagine anyone else as first verse-man?
Watch the interview here:
A half-eaten piece of toast rejected by One Direction’s Niall Horan attracted almost $100,000 in online bids. The band was being interviewed on Australia’s Sunrise yesterday where they tasted a bunch of local foods. Niall Horan tried a Vegemite spread for the first time but was utterly unimpressed and spat it out.
He told his Twitter followers: ”Can clearly say vegemite is horrible! Like tryin new stuff though.”
The broadcaster then auctioned off the other piece of the toast for the Australian charity YoungCare. It’s a nice thought and the money is definitely worth sending to charity, but is it really worth a gnarled piece of toast that will probably go mouldy in a week? Also, what do you actually DO with leftover toast? Eat it? Cryogenically freeze it?
