One Direction Harry Styles The Billboard Music Awards

It definitely wasn't the One Direction star in the photo.

When all you can think about is one band, you're probably going to see lookalikes everywhere. Unfortunately, that was the case for one excited One Direction fan who posted a photo on Twitter apparently showing the back of Harry Styles head on a bus.

The superfan posted a picture of a young man riding the bus in LA - who had his long hair pulled back, earphones in, apparently lost in his music and with what looks like a remarkably Styles-esque nose - accompanied by the caption 'Harry on a bus in LA!' As it turns out, the man was actually, well, we don't know. 'It actually wasn't me', Styles confessed in a red carpet interview ahead of the band's performance at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas.

Miguel Has A Problem. Singer Told NOT To Jump At Billboard Music Awards

By Michael West in Lifestyle / Showbiz on 05 June 2013

Miguel The Billboard Music Awards

Miguel apparently defied an order NOT to jump into the crowd at the Billboard Music Awards.

Miguel has potentially landed himself in an awful lot of trouble after it emerged he was ordered not to jump over the crowd during his performance at The Billboard Music Awards because producers deemed it too dangerous. Of course, the Latin star defied the order and lunged into the crowd, leg dropping a female fan who subsequently smashed her head against the stage.

Sources connected to the production of the annual awards show tell TMZ.com that Miguel approached producers before rehearsals and asked if he could try the jump. Producers shot down the idea, telling Miguel it was simply too dangerous.

Once show time came around, the singer ignored the order and attempted the jump, botching it completely and seriously injuring a fan. Now, the victim's lawyer says she may have suffered a brain injury as a result with a lawsuit expected to land on Miguel's doorstep in the near future.

Taylor Swift at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards

The 2013 Billboard Music Awards looked to be one of the most celeb-filled events of the year with some of the music industry's biggest stars making their glamorous arrivals.

'22' singer Taylor Swift clutched eight accolades to her chest as she posed on the red carpet having won Top Billboard 200 Album and Top Country Album for 'Red', Top Country Song with 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together', Top Artist, Top Female Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Digital Songs Artist and Top Country Artist. Carly Rae Jepsen was another young female star to land a prize winning Top Digital Song and Top Pop Song for her massive 2012 hit 'Call Me Maybe'. Queen of Pop Madonna scooped up three well deserved awards including Top Dance Album for 'MDNA', Top Dance Artist and Top Touring Artist after her controversial 'MDNA' tour which landed her amidst a handful of lawsuits. There was no sign of letting up on the controversial front either as she donned hotpants, suspenders and fishnets at the Billboard event. Top Streaming Artist, Top Rap Artist and Top Rap Album with 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded' went to Nicki Minaj while Top EDM Artist was none other than David Guetta who brought his wife Cathy Guetta along with him to the awards show.
