In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of Hits and Misses. This week, Angelina Jolie undergoes preventative double mastectomy procedure and Chris Brown is scaring the neighbourhood kids with his terrible art.
HIT: Angelina Jolie undergoes double mastectomy to lower her chances of getting cancer
She’s a heroine on and off screen! After discovering she had an 87% risk of breast cancer and a 50% risk of developing ovarian cancer, Angelina Jolie underwent a double mastectomy to reduce her chances of developing either. In an Op-Ed she wrote for the New York Times she wrote, “I want to encourage every woman, especially if you have a family history of breast or ovarian cancer, to seek out the information and medical experts who can help you through this aspect of your life, and to make your own informed choices.” Brad Pitt, of course, was beside her every step of the way saying that she is “absolutely heroic.”
MISS: Chris Brown scares the neighborhood kids with his crappy art
He can sing, he can dance, but Chris Brown CANNOT paint. The “celebrity” painted fang-bearing goblins outside of his Hollywood Hills home which are scaring the neighbourhood kids. As such, the “bad boy” has been ordered to take down the images within 30 days or else face a fine. While the $376 (USD) fine probably is chump change to him, do you think he’ll take them down out of respect? “”There are scarier creatures on Harry Potter,” he tweeted. “Get a … life!” So, no.
HIT: Gwyneth Paltrow (tries) to cover her tracks, says she was thrilled to be at the MET Ball
Weeks after teasing fans on Twitter with cryptic messages, One Direction have announced their 2014′s Where We Are Tour at a press conference at Wembley Stadium Thursday. Talk about a packed schedule as One Direction are already incredibly busy with their current 2013 world tour!
Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and Harry Styles are just as excited for their upcoming adventures as their loyal fans.
“We are ecstatic,” said Niall. “We have only been a band for three years and we’re already doing stadiums – including Wembley.”
Harry also chimed in and shared what fans can expect on the tour: “It’s important the fans and everyone who comes to see the show know it’s going to be much bigger and new songs. A completely different tour.” Bigger and different – well count me in!
They also took the opportunity to share some news on the new album, the one their pal, Ed Sheeran, said was already finished. Louis shared that the album would take the band in a, ahem, new direction (ZING!), “There will be a new album this year. It’s taken a slightly rockier tone.”
“We made it a lot more edgier,” added Liam.
The tour will take the boys all around the world, promising to hit up every country. It’s set to kick off in Latin America on April 25, 2014 and will continue on to Ireland and The U.K. Before you get your heads in tizzy, they have also promised a U.S. leg and I’m sure they wouldn’t forget about their Canadian fans. You can keep posted on all the upcoming dates HERE.
Well they weren’t kidding when they said they’d have a huge announcement. I don’t know about you but I need a lie down after all that.
Whether it’s in interviews or their tomfoolery behind the scenes, the boys in One Direction no doubt have loads of fun when they’re together. And even though choosing their best on-air moments is like choosing which member has the best hair, I took on the task and listed some of the funniest moments of the lads.
One Direction Get Pranked On Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway
In this prank the boys are led to believe that they are meeting two fans on a New Zealand morning show who couldn’t make it to their show in New York because their dog “Zayn” was hit by a car. The best part about this video is how Harry is pretty much the only one who is trying to help his fainting fan.
Louis and Zayn Prank Harry, Liam and Niall
How can we forget the time when Louis and Zayn pranked Niall, Liam and Harry at Nickoledeon by making them think they were going to deliver a baby? Again, can we just appreciate how concerned Harry is in this moment?
Come to think of it, if there’s anything to take away from these two pranks it’s that I hope Harry’s there in the case of an emergency.
Then there was the time they were briefly known as “Juan Direction” on SNL
Well, here’s some news that made it feel like it’s Christmas morning.
They may be on their Take Me Home world tour, but the boys of One Direction have also been working hard on their third album. They hope to have out by Christmas and it looks like they may just hit that goal.
In a recent interview with MTV, their ginger buddy, Ed Sheeran, let the cat out of the bag by claiming that the album is already finished! (Cue the squeals!) But if you were hoping for another Ed Sheeran/1D collaboration, you won’t find it on this next album. Deciding to keep his songs for himself this time around, Ed didn’t contribute anything.
“I haven’t done any songs on this one; I’ve actually kind of cut myself from giving any people songs at the moment, because I want to make my album,” he said. “Once my album’s done, then we’ll see. But their album is already finished.”
Ed has become One Direction’s biggest collaborator, having donated already three songs for their last couple of records, having written hits like “Moments” for Up All Night, “Over Again” and the swoon worthy “Little Things” for Take Me Home.
Ed or no Ed, this album is will be at the top of every Directioners’ Christmas list and have us dancing with joy. Yay!
Say what you will about the boys of One Direction, one thing’s for sure, they keep upping the adorable factor. Louis and Zayn are going to have one sweet ride during the American leg of their Take Me Home Tour as they might be seen rolling up in a real life version of Scooby-Doo‘s Mystery Machine.
There’s been talk of the boys putting down £70, 000, (roughly $109.9 thousand CAD) on the bus. It looks like it’s all finally coming together, and of course Louis had to share his excitement through Twitter.
Decked out in colours you can’t miss with “The Mystery Machine” painted in large orange lettering, you have to wonder if this a good idea. I mean the “mystery” is pretty much gone and I can just see the fans now on the look-out for a large turquoise van roaming the streets of their city this summer. Nonetheless, it’s pretty cool. Maybe they should go all out and drive around disguised as the characters.
The boys of One Direction have finally met their match as they helped to unveil their new Madame Tussauds wax figures on Thursday.
The boys got a little silly as they were posing with their wax counterparts in London, England with Liam Payne opting to pick the nose of his new friend.
The boys also tweeted this from their group account:
— One Direction (@onedirection) April 18, 2013
Directioners were left in a tizzy of emotions after they thought they heard One Direction’s Harry Styles mention ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift during his solo in “Little Things” during their Newcastle gig.
But before the “Haylor” bashing starts all over again, rest assured that this is all most likely either, a joke courtesy of his fellow bandmates, which wouldn’t be a first. Cue flashback of Harry getting pantsed onstage by Liam. There’s also a chance are it’s a complete misunderstanding, i.e. hearing ”Ted” and even “pet” instead.
So what do you hear when Harry sings “And I’m in love with you?” at the 1:40 mark?
If you’re the few Directioners and The Wanted fans who are casually scrolling through Twitter and Tumblr today and wondering, “Woah! What the heck happened last night?” Here is a full display of the Tom Parker and Louis Tomlinson Twitter fight of 2013.
Apparently Louis spoke some words about their rivals at a recent gig that Tom didn’t quite find amusing and which sparked this tweet:
Then Louis took a crack at the whole Max and Lindsay story
Then Liam decided to join on the fun:
The boys have been having a lot of fun with their latest album Take Me Home. After dressing up as sailors, surfer dudes, skiers and “Jail House” inmates for “Kiss You,” it’s no surprise that silliness ensued during filming. Showing some behind the scenes footage, the alternate video shows the guys cracking jokes and joking with one another in between shoots. One thing (no pun intended) is for sure, you’ll have as much fun watching it as they did filming it.
Animator Mark Parsons is back with a new instalment of the Adventurous Adventures of One Direction 2. YAY!
in his little intro before the actual video (which is dedicated to Zayn: “Ain’t nobody as dope as you”), Parsons explains the background of this new video. He received letter from two fans after his first AAoOD video asking him to pretty much animate a fanfic story line for them.
Well, lucky for the Natalie and Sarah (the two fans who wrote to Parsons) he did and they are now cartoon dating Niall and Harry.
To be fair, at the time of writing this, I only got through the beginning (the video is a half an hour long), but so far it’s pretty funny. I’d totally be friends with cartoon Harry. I also totally agree with cartoon Louis and Liam that the Louis doll is kind of scary. Here’s what doll Louis looks like in real life:
Anyways, make sure to tell us what you think!
WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW:
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Selena Gomez practically tells us who her favourite One Directioner is and Chris Brown gets into a fight with Frank Ocean.
HIT: Selena Gomez would kiss Zayn from One Direction
Single Selena Gomez recently dished to Extra! that she wouldn’t mind stealing a smooch from One Direction’s Zayn Malik. Doesn’t that sound like a great new relationship? She’s single, he’s s— oh, no. No, he is not single but I wouldn’t be surprise if he were currently headed for one considering his recently cheating scandal. Malik (who’s attached to pop star Perrie Edwards) had a one-night stand with a waitress. Oooooh! Can’t wait to see how this plays out!
MISS: Chris Brown and Frank Ocean got into a fight
Chris Brown can’t seem to stay out of trouble as the village idiot picked a fight with fellow Grammy nominee, Frank Ocean. The confrontation allegedly escalated when Ocean left Brown’s handshake hanging or over a parking space. Ocean and Brown acknowledged the scuffle on the Internet in their own respective ways. Ocean tweeted the incident and added, “”Cut my finger now I can’t play w/two hands at the Grammys,” while Brown practically compared himself to Jesus on the cross on Instagram. Brown has since made his account on the photo sharing website private and is currently under investigation. GO TEAM OCEAN!
HIT: Bradley Cooper took off his shirt at a spin class causing women to fall off their bikes
In his quest of perpetual handsomeness, current best actor nominee Bradley Cooper hit up a spin class in New York City for a quick work out and caused a lot of women to fall off their bikes. According to the New York Post, the actor tried to be incognito and wore a long sleeved shirt for most of the class until he decided to whip it off at the very end. The Post’s sources said at that point “girls were literally falling off their bikes,” but “he was super gracious” to the fans that had the courage to say hello after class. I hope someone took the opportunity to ask him out because he is single.

Once upon a time, there was this really beautiful man named Elvis who made his fans LITERALLY swoon when he performed. You might have heard of him. If not, that’s okay, because the modern-day swooners of our time have taken inspiration from Elvis’ “Jail House Rock” for their upcoming music video. Of course, I’m talking about One Direction.
The boy band has been teasing their fans for the past few days with snippets of their latest single “Kiss You.” Based on the footage from the Bring Me to 1D contest, the guys are seen doing strange things on a motorcycle, prancing around in a jail, and dancing on surf boards. This all makes sense.
In the meantime, whilst we wait anxiously for the full video to come out, the guys have blessed us with a convenient lyric video for the song. And I will be conveniently humming this to myself for the rest of my life in a non-apologetic manner.
Listen to “Kiss You” here:
So right now the interwebz is currently freaking out over NoPetsAllowd‘s mashup of Ke$ha’s “Die Young” and One Direction’s “Live While We’re Young.” The mashup is pretty genius — Ke$ha’s voice flows seamlessly with the guys’. It’s almost like they got together in the studio and made the mashup in perfect harmony. Can you imagine Ke$ha and the boys of 1D in the same room? Hairspray and glitter everywhere.
This mashup is so catchy that it might be (emphasis on might) better than the songs themselves. It’s basically impossible to get out of your head once you’ve heard it.
So I guess now we can add this mashup to the collection of Ke$ha-One Direction hybrids that have been circulating the internet, like SmadaLeinad‘s version. At some point our minds are going to melt from 1D-Ke$ha combinations. Just make a duet already.
Listen to the mashup here:
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:
Water park + Justin Bieber = Best music video ever?
After watching Justin Bieber’s new music video for “Beauty And A Beat” featuring Nicki Minaj, I couldn’t help but watch it over and over again! Seems like it payed off because yesterday VEVO tweeted: “24hr Record shattered w/ 10.6M VIEWS! No wonder @justinbieber is the biggest artist in the world!” [fuckyesjustinbieber]
My laptop is pretty much like my child. I use it on a daily basis and with that being said, I want to glitz it up with coloured keys. Has anyone else tried it? [italianluxury]
The boys are back on a whole new level
The Wanted released their new action packed video for “I Found You” and things get a little steamy for Nathan Sykes. The youngest member of the band, often refereed to as “Baby Nath” isn’t much of a baby anymore..and we like it. [madefornath]
But I can’t have just one…
Eekkk, Halloween is two weeks away, but you’ll definitely be seeing all kinds of chocolate, candy and decorations on the shelves. Just remember to buy an extra box and keep a hidden stash for all your cravings. [fallinlovewiththeseasons]
Do you approve?
Zayn Malik told Fabulous Mag, “At the moment I’m probably on about eight or nine cigs a day, which I tell myself isn’t too many. I just don’t want it to affect my health.” [niallersangel]
That awkward moment when… Read more…
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]
