Everyone knows the guys from One Direction love a good joke. So taking their antics with them, the band recently caused some good-natured chaos in the studio of UK’s Real Radio.
With Louis Tomlinson repeatedly yelling, “What’s ya name and where ya from?! We’re the Wanted!”, Niall Horan on the other hand, tricked listeners into thinking they’ve won tickets to see Manchester United (they didn’t).
While it’s hard to keep up with what’s going on, it’s nice to see the boys actually taking a bit of time to sing a seemingly calm, acoustic version of their single ‘Live While We’re Young” at another radio station.
This of course, leads me to my next question. Which station got the better deal? Would you rather have the boys of 1D joke around with you or serenade you instead?
100.9 WNOU-FM, a pop radio station, took singer Chris Brown’s music off its playlist according to the Indianapolis Star. The station said they based their decision on “listener criticism of the singer after his arrest in connection with the assault of a woman.”
Similarly, Cleveland’s WAKS-FM 96.5 announced it took all of Brown’s songs off its on-air playlist until further notice according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
“After the alleged incident, the phones exploded. It’s all that people wanted to talk about. They were outraged at this alleged behavior and wondered why we were continuing to support his music. I agreed, and immediately pulled all Chris Brown songs from my show until this thing shakes out in the legal system.” WAKS-FM DJ Java Joel said in a press release.
The 19-year-old singer has also lost an endorsement deal with the Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company. Although Brown’s “Got Milk?” series was supposed to end this week, the company has released a statement saying it takes the allegations against the singer “very seriously.”
On Sunday, Brown was arrested and charged with allegedly making criminal threats on a women who is reported to be his girlfriend, singer Rihanna. Both singers pulled out of the Grammy awards a few hours before the live telecast on February 8.
