One Direction perform an acoustic version ‘Steal My Girl’ for #1DFourHangout

one direction

One Direction are about to release another album, and this one is supposed to mark a change for the band from kiddy nonsense to grown men serious music stuff. If the lead single, ‘Steal My Girl’, is anything to go by, they do actually have more of a mature sound this time around and… I think I’m actually becoming a fan.

Granted, this acoustic version of the song is a bit weak, but they are decent enough singers and they have grown in that area. I just like the song, okay? However, I am confused by a few things:

1. What’s going on with Zayn’s hair?

2. What’s going on with Harry’s hair?

3. Why hasn’t Niall’s hair changed?

I think that’s pretty much it. Enjoy the video and try NOT to sing along. I dare you!

A popular Harry Styles fanfic to be released as an actual book

harry styles

There are so many amazing writers in the world who are slogging their guts out on a daily basis just to try and even get a literary agent to give them the time of day and read a piece of original fiction. It’s always been a tough business, but it’s gotten even harder in the past decade or so, since now even the book business refuses to go for original creative content and instead prefers to repurpose shitty pop culture pieces in book form.

That’s exactly what’s happening with a popular Harry Styles fanfic called After. The story has apparently been published on something called Wattpad, which is for aspiring writers, and has had over 800 million views, which is depressing / scary. Scarier still, major publishing house Simon & Schuster has picked up the story and it’s a six-figure deal for the author, Anna Todd, which basically makes me want to go smash myself through the nearest plate glass window.

According to Hypable, After is apparently about an 18-year-old college student called Tessa who gets good grades and is a good girl… until she mades a wild child named Harry, with too many tattoos and piercings, who “shatters her plans”. WHY GOD WHY? Harry’s name will apparently change in the published book version to save them from a potential lawsuit, but dear God, this is just dire. Todd has also apparently signed the world audio and movie rights to the “story”, as well.

You can read the first chapter of the story here, if you’re a masochist.

People are surprised that One Direction smokes weed

For some reason, there’s a massive uproar over the fact that One Direction members Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson were filmed joking about weed and actually smoking some before a concert in Peru last month. The video was leaked last night to the Daily Mail and is on the news EVERYWHERE (at least here in the UK), making me go –__– because… seriously? Why is this even news?

In the footage seen by MailOnline, band member Louis Tomlinson, 22, narrates from behind the camera, laughingly announcing, ‘So here we are, leaving Peru. Joint lit. Happy days!’

‘What do you think about that kind of content?’ he asks bandmate Zayn Malik, 21, who is alongside him in the SUV ferrying them to Peru’s Estadio Nacional in Lima where One Direction performed to a 40,000 capacity crowd on April 27 as part of their ‘Where We Are’ tour.

‘Very controversial,’ Zayn responds.

Driving into the sunlight from an underground parking lot, Louis says, ‘I want to light up,’ and a member of the team hands him a lighter and the flicker of a roll up being lit is caught on camera.

The sight of a police officer on a motorbike escorting them, is met with great excitement. Louis notes: ‘That’s the police. That’s the po po. One-nil.’ He coughs and a cloud of smoke, floats across the camera lens and Louis yells, ‘Smokescreen baby!’

Later in the video, Louis pans to a police motorcyclist just yards away. Louis giggles, ‘One nil b***h! Look at this b***h! He’s having a look. He’s thinking, “I’m sure I can smell an illegal substance in there.” And he’s hit the nail on the head.’

Right, so these guys are major corndogs who are still in the “Tee hee, marijuana is so cool and edgy!” phase of life. Who hasn’t been there? And who really cares? If you don’t think Harry Styles is snorting lines of white powder up his nose several times a day, you’re an idiot. Weed is the least of what these kids get up to, so why are we all clutching our pearls?

Here’s the video in question…

Chris Martin really loves One Direction

Look, One Direction has really catchy songs, okay? Just starting to type this article, I have ‘Story of My Life’ stuck in my head (and if you’ve ever heard it before, you probably do too, now) and I’m not ashamed to say I have the latest album in my iTunes. I’ve never listened to it, but I do own it and maybe I will one day! So what, who cares? Even Chris Martin loves them!

Here’s what the Coldplay frontman told BBC Radio 1′s Zane Lowe:

“I think One Direction are the biggest band in the world, their songs are great. I’m saying One Direction are brilliant and I’m not kidding.

“You know why? Because their songs are really good and I don’t think that any of them are going to go solo. I think they appreciate their chemistry from watching their movie… Harry [Styles] has come to a couple of our shows, I think I probably said the same thing about chemistry.”

Ha! He also claimed that he started questioning her sexuality because he was enamoured with Harry’s hair. Hilarious – especially because I still don’t understand how anyone finds Harry Styles remotely attractive, but perhaps I’m not the right audience. I still like the songs, though! Here – now you can partake with me (I love to torture you!!!):

One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson is a Professional Footballer

No, the above photo wasn’t taken in PE class or a Halloween party – One Direction singer Louis Tomlinson is actually playing football for a professional team. In particular, he made his debut for the Doncaster Rovers on Wednesday night in front of at least 5,000 1D fans… and some actual sports fans, one would assume. One Directioner even flew all the way from Michigan to see this bullshit, LOL.

Louis basically signed a non-contract contract with the Rovers last year as part of his charity work with Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice. If you don’t get it, don’t worry – no one does. What matters is that he got put in as a substitute at the 65th minute in the South Yorkshire derby fixture against Rotherham. He got to kick the ball around a little and even fell on his ass at one point and the game ended in a 0-0 draw. The end.

He was pretty stoked about it all, as evidenced by the tweets he posted after the game:


The funny thing is, having been to a football game in my time and being quite familiar with the fans who turn up, I guarantee you they were none too pleased with a bunch of screaming One Direction fans infiltrating their space. God, I’d have loved to have seen that.

Here’s Harry Styles’ Bare Ass, Peeing in the Bushes

harry styles ass

If you’ve ever wanted to see the junk in Harry Styles‘ trunk, here’s your chance. Apparently a few years back, Harry went out on the piss, as the English say, and needed to relieve himself. Instead of using a proper toilet or going somewhere discrete, Harry just shoved his pants ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE ANKLE (why? Is this seriously something men do?) and went for it.

Twitter user @JagChaggarTutis posted the photo and even tagged Harry in it, asking if the One Direction member (lol) had any recollection of the night in question, and while Harry didn’t respond directly, he did soon after tweet the following:


Of course, that then got Sir Mix-a-Lot involved and he was incredulous that the photo is even Harry (and it doesn’t look anything like him, to be fair) and then Mix promised a fan that he was trying to “limit the spreading”, which… let’s all just take it down a few notches.


In any case, now you’ve seen Harry Styles’ ass. I bet your life feels more complete now.
