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?
I’m pretty sure the mark of a viral song these days is whether or not Barack Obama has covered it through baracksdubs. He already dubbed Carly Rae Jepsen, LMFAO and Justin Bieber so it’s natural he’d go for Brit boy band One Direction next.
Here he is singing “What Makes You Beautiful,” which makes us totally swoon. These are the words we always wished he would sing say to us.
While some indecisive people go back and forth in their head, debating about whether or not they should get a tattoo, Justin Bieber is all “I’m gonna get inked here, here and here. Then I’m gonna get MORE until it’s an entire sleeve.”
His newest tat is on the inner side of his right forearm and is the Japanese Kanji symbol for “music.” It coordinates pretty well with the tattoo on his right arm, which says the name of his third studio album “Believe.” JB also has a Jesus tattoo on his calf and Hebrew letters he got with his dad.
Next thing you know, JB will be covered head to toe, much to the chagrin of
Grandpa David Letterman, who voiced his disapproval in a recent interview.
Meanwhile, One Direction’s Harry Styles new tattoo was on display and it’s thought to be a letter “A” for his mom Anne. [This is the time where all the lovestruck fans bat their eyelashes.] Just like Bieber the tattoo is on his forearm.

This spectacular piano version of One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful” is brought to us by ThePianoGuys, who cram around a single Yamaha grand piano and make the song sound unrecognizable. We love One Direction’s upbeat version but this unbelievable cover really shows how one instrument can be used in so many ways. The five guys take turns pounding the keys, rapping on the side like a drum and playing the strings like a violin.
The idea came to them a couple months ago when they were all sitting around a piano, banging out a beat. They decided to create an arrangement and after going through a few song possibilities they landed on “What Makes You Beautiful.”
“We thought about the ramifications of taking on a teenybopper boy band tune as five middle-aged married guys who are desperately holding on to their hairlines,” they wrote on YouTube. “One of us even has a son older than the guys in One Direction (we won’t say who) : – ) BUT you know us — we love a good challenge!”
The guys filmed it at 2:30 in the morning and played until sunrise. We’re definitely hitting replay on this one. What do you think of it?
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!”
Writing stories about your favourite boy band can be taken as a high form of flattery. But when the two members happen to date in them, things can get pretty awkward.
During an interview with Tumblr, Louis Tomlinson opened up about the difficulties he faces with his public life when asked if he ever feels pressure to live up to the “characters” his fans create through fan-fiction. A popular topic surrounding these stories often include him and fellow member Harry Styles, dubbing the pairing as “Larry Stylinson.”
“This is a subject that was funny at first but now is actually hard to deal with as I am in a relationship,” said Tomlinson.
“Me and Harry are best friends, people look into our every move. It is actually affecting the way me and Harry are in public: We want to joke around but there seems to be a different rumour every time we do anything. I act the same way with Harry as I do any of the other boys and my childhood friend Stan.”
While I’m not a big reader of fan fictions, I can imagine how weird it can get when it involves you and a close, platonic friend in a romantic relationship. Let’s just hope these fans don’t mix up their imaginations with reality!!
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.
Relax, One Direction Fans! Liam’s not engaged! Despite the internet rumour mill’s buzzing, the 1D singer is not getting married to or moving in with girlfriend Danielle Peazer.
The rumours began after a fake instragram account posted a photo of the two with a caption alerting fans to some big, upcoming news for the couple. ”This is a fake account and the rumors are completely false,” Liam’s reps told MTV News. “They are not engaged or moving in together.”
I know there’s hasn’t been much since the boys finished their big tour, but don’t worry 1D fans, they’ll be back soon enough. Their next single may drop as early this fall. They also have a couple of tour dates here and there before setting off on a big world tour in 2013. Tumblr also has a feature running on their storyboard site on what it’s like to be a 1D fan so you can relieve all your favourite fandom moments together.
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?
Even if you’re not into chippy boy bands or One Direction singles you have to admit that their songs are pretty damn catchy and deep down you’re actually obsessed. No really, you are but just don’t want to admit it.
Still, it’s nice to hear interpretations of an original song. By changing the tempo and pitch, artists can change the vibe of a track entirely. Suddenly, you start liking a song you might not have listened to in the first place.
Here are three of our faves:
The preppy ladies from glee-style group CIMORELLI put a girly twist on their “One Thing” music video, filming it at the community playground. The neon-clad ladies are all sisters from California and took some visual inspiration from their little brothers. ADORBZ.

Justin Bieber is usually very polite in interviews. But during a talk with radio host Mojo from Mojo in the Morning, the singer lost his temper and hung up the phone when he was asked about his mother and One Direction.
Just as a normal interview would go, the chat appeared to be going well in the beginning. However, it started to go downhill when the singer was compared to Justin Timberlake.
Sounding unimpressed, Justin said, “Man that’s crazy ’cause our voices sound nothing alike. I mean, saying I sound like someone else is not really a compliment.”
Nonetheless, Justin and Mojo continue the conversation until Mojo made a cheeky joke about One Direction’s Harry Styles falling for the singer’s mom.
Sounding quite angry, Justin replies, “I think you should worry about me around your mom, bro.”
But wait for it.
This is when the conversation gets SUPER awkward. As Mojo went on to explain that his mother was dead, Justin ends up hanging up the phone. Soon after, his rep calls back to explain that Justin got upset and probably won’t be calling back.
While I can see why Justin would get upset, do you think he went a bit too far? He has gotten in a bit of trouble for his temper, but I really hope the fame hasn’t got to his head!
Listen to the interview here:
While a lot of girls are secretly wishing for the One Direction singer to father their babies, Harry Styles has been warned by his father not to get any girls pregnant.
In an interview with British People, Harry’s father Des Styles warned his son to protect himself while dating.
“I said to Harry, ‘Just make sure you don’t get anyone pregnant.’ If that were to happen, it would really screw things up big time. There’s nothing I can do to stop him doing things anyway. From a One Direction aspect, it wouldn’t be great for all sorts of reasons. Still, I don’t think it would bother him too much if he did get a girl pregnant. He would be a responsible parent and just get on with it.”
While it’s a good thing that Harry hasn’t gotten any pregnancy scares yet, I do have to warn him. Even though Justin Bieber didn’t have anything to do with Mariah Yeater, Harry could still be hit by a crazy fan claiming to be the mother of his child!
But on another note, do you think Harry Styles would make a good father?
Ladies and gents, better hide your mothers before Harry Styles can get to them.
Well, at least that’s what Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber plan on doing.
Revealing in an interview with The Mirror, Selena admitted that her boyfriend Justin told her he wants to keep the cougar-loving Harry away from their moms!
Seeing that Styles can have his pick on any lady, Gomez said she knows the One Direction crooner has his eye on the older women!!
“We know some beautiful young women in the industry who have major crushes on Harry,” she said.
“He could probably pretty much take his pick from the hottest young girls in Hollywood. But from what Justin has been telling me, it’s not the young girls he’s looking at! I guess you just can’t blame him when you see how hot women such as Cameron Diaz, Eva Longoria and Sofia Vergara look. Both me and Justin still have really hot mom sand Justin was like, ‘Harry might have become one of my best buddies, but with his record we need to keep him away from our mums.’”
Justin’s mom Pattie, 37, and Selena’s mom Mandy, 36, both had their famous children at young ages. Harry on the other hand, once dated TV personality Caroline Flack, who is 14 years his senior at the age of 32.
I’m sorry, but I find this piece of news hilarious and just a bit ridiculous. We all know Harry loves older women, but it’s not like he won’t date someone his own age!
Nice joke, Justin.
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:

If you’re the type of person that’s obsessed with pop songs or has a poor attention span then your head is pretty much going to explode when you hear this new “Pop Mash Up” by Vissagan Gopalakrishnan. The track remixes 40 pop songs into four minutes of bliss, including tracks by Rihanna, One Direction, Maroon 5 and Katy Perry.
While we’re happily doing the space hugger to this track, Gopalakrishnan is a bit of a pop music grouch: “I was listening to the radio when I realized I could mix every song I had just heard. Pop songs are so replaceable these days…”
Even if he was trying to prove the point that some pop music can sound formulaic, we still think it’s a solid mashup.
Did One Direction’s Harry Styles kiss Niall Horan? We answer this, talk about heroic stoners and get hypnotized by an excessively slow turtle eating a raspberry.
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.

Meet Keegan, Joshua and Connolly, a trio who want to meet their idols One Direction.
Hoping to get their video message out to Liam, Harry, Zayn, Niall and Louis these seven-year-old triplets present an awesome video of them lip-synching to “What Makes You Beautiful” and “One Thing.”
And because they’re already very connected, they have even started the Twitter hashtag #1DmeetLittle1D from their Twitter account @Little1D_KJC.
Oh, to be so young and networking on the internet already…
Uh…what? One Direction’s Zayn Malik is being under fire by an American blogger for exploiting his Muslim heritage.
According to The Sun, Debbie Schlussel has warned parents to “keep their daughters away” from the British boy band because she claims that Malik had posted tweets for fans about Ramadan and Allah.
“The scary thing is that millions of girls in America and around the world are infatuated with the members of One Direction, including Zayn. He knows the power he has over these mindless girls and is using that influence to preach the Islamic faith. It’s dangerous.”
Continuing her rant, she also said, “With the boy band One Direction, it’s all about pimping Islam amid the deceptive visage of angelic, effeminate boys in a band. Yup, for them there is definitely One Direction: facing Mecca.”
To see this being said is incredibly upsetting. Living in 2012, we should be learning to have more open minds about different religions and races. Not living in a world of fear and hate.
But while Malik hasn’t responded to these comments yet, American Muslim campaigner Wajahat Ali has come to support Zayn, saying it is “empowering” to have a Muslim in a popular boy band.
He said that even though conservative Muslims may disagree with Zayn’s actions (tattoos, ear piercings, smoking), he can “really help open those minds.”
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!
