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.

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!
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Carrie Underwood supports gay marriage and Lindsay Lohan gets set to work with a porn star for an indie thriller.
HIT: One Direction write songs for their girlfriends
What use is your boyfriend if he has a sweet voice but won’t write any songs about you? Absolutely none. So it’s nice to see the boys of 1D put their talent to work. They’ve been busy penning song for their next album and it seems they’ve been inspired by homesickness and their girlfriends. The next time I go to the dentist, he’ll have a couple of cavities to fill because this is beyond sweet. Note: there are still a couple single 1D guys up for grabs.
MISS: Chris Brown wears gold fangs
After seeing pictures of this, British GQ was right to dub Brown the worst dressed celebrity. First of all, who even wears gold grills anymore? I thought all rappers got rid of those when Kanye started donning Louis Vuitton back in the early 2000s. Secondly, he’s a bit late on the Twilight vampire phase, isn’t he? (Yes, even I know Twilight vampires don’t have fangs. Gosh.)

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!?!

We’re totally not getting the logic behind this one. Justin Bieber won Villain of the Year at the 2012 Kerrang! Awards in London. He did pull out the Silence of the Lambs mask this week but despite that skulled covered he’s basically as gentlemanly as one can get.
Other people that were nominated for the award included Simon Cowell (okay we understand this one) Ronnie Radke of Falling in Reverse, Lou Reed and One Direction. One Direction is pretty much the epitome of buttoned-up prepsters with dimpled smiles and fluffy hair so we’re not sure how malicious they are.
I think they were a little off in this one.
I mean, look at him perform on Germany’s Next Top Model. He just wants to take care of you.
Here’s how to get a personal acknowledgement from One Direction’s Harry Styles. This girl was at a concert in Mexico and was getting CRUSHED by super fans who all wanted to get as close as humanly possible to the guys.
Harry’s super keen hero senses kicked in and he motioned to the girls to chill out, lest she gets hurt. LISTEN TO HARRY PEOPLE. He eventually knelt down, got the attention of a nearby security guard and told him to help her out. Niall looked at him after and said: ”Good job, mate.”
So basically, he did her a total solid, like a badass stepchild of Mick Jagger and Chuck Norris. We’re wondering if Harry is actually a singer or some type of Michael Bay action hero with keen observation skills.
Warning: we do not endorse getting the attention of 1D by getting crushed. Other ways to get their attention here.

In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Ryan Gosling is the perfect son at his mom’s grad and One Direction fans hide in the garbage for FOUR hours.
HIT: Ryan Gosling goes to mom’s graduation, brings Eva Mendes
Ryan Gosling continues to show the world just how perfect he is, by showing up at Brock University to watch his mom cross the stage to scoop up another degree. Gosling also brought girlfriend Eva Mendes for the occasion. He made an appearance at McMaster University last year, yelling, “love you, mom! You’re the best mom, ever!” as his mom picked up her a bachelor’s degree. He loves his mom, he saves journalists, and he stops fights. Perfection.
MISS: One Direction fans hide in garbage bins for four hours
My favourite thing about reading One Direction news is reading all batshit crazy stunts fans pull just to catch a glimpse of their idols. Take for instance, hiding in garbage bins for four hours (they were caught, Zayn told the The Mirror). Or, kayaking across a lake. Or, ripping clothes off of Niall and Liam, and starting a riot in New York. Teenage girls everywhere: control thy hormones.

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.

Origins: Essex, England
Real name: Oliver Stanley Murs

Style: The Silent Ninja
Skill level: Advanced
Description: Sneaking into their hotel room comes with the added risk of being busted by security, but the payoff is big. These fans snuck onto the hotel room floor roped off for One Direction and waited with their cameras like silent ninjas. They write on YouTube: “harry sounds pretty sloppy and apparently zayn was too. harry was in his boxers, riding on someones back down the hall while yelling something. best night of my life.” Apparently in the video Harry’s saying: “I got caught though, OLLY!” Whatever that means.
Name: The Chasers
Skill level: Novice
Description: If you’re a beginner, figure out where the band is doing their next book signing, wait till after the event and when you spot them RUN FOR YOUR LIFE. Here’s Zayn Malik riding on a golf cart at a signing in Chicago. She writes on YouTube: “This was a crazy experience and I just happened to be outside of the arena when they were(:”
Name: The Messenger
Skill level: Medium
Description : If you have a personal message for the guys, sit down with a piece of paper and a pen, and blubber out all your feelings. Then when you meet them in person you can hand them the note, just like these fans did for Zayn Malik in NYC. Zayn smiled and waved at these ladies. Just avoid excessive use of the word “love” and “marry me.”
Note: We do not endorse stalking One Direction.
