Anchorman meets One Direction hysteria: what could possibly go wrong?
Paul Rudd kicked off his third go at hosting NBC's Saturday Night Live by ensuring that every 15 year-old pop music fangirl in the country was watching as he recited an opening monologue whilst being flanked by boyband One Direction. Rudd lamented that he had been overshadowed by previous musical guests Beyoncé and Paul McCartney only to be upstaged once again by the British fivesome.

"Don't worry Paul, we're not here to outshine you," Harry Styles reassured him. "Yeah, you do the comedy stuff and we'll stand back and blow kisses," Niall Horan added as the rest of the band looked on, presumably fighting back laughter.

The British actor was voted as the 'Sexiest Man Alive' by Glamour magazine
Henry Cavill has topped the latest poll by Glamour magazine to determine the '100 Sexiest Men Alive.' The Man of Steel actor took the top spot from four-time winner of the accolade Robert Pattinson, who after four consecutive years of being declared the world's biggest hunk, fell down to number two this year.
Henry Cavill is apparently the sexiest man alive
The Twilight-star has long been a favourite for the magazine when compiling their yearly list of sexiest men, but this year the spandex-wearing DC superhero Cavill proved too dashing to ignore, as he leaped to the top spot. Cavill was chosen as the sexiest man alive by the magazine on the back of his successful turn as Superman in the blockbuster Man of Steel, with his chiselled abs and facial features probably going some way towards securing his spot at the top of the poll too.

There was also Ron Burgundy, huge wins for Eminem and Katy Perry and a wardrobe malfunction from Iggy Azalia
Miley Cyrus was always going to star in the Monday morning gossip headlines when she was first announced as a performer at the 2013 MTV EMAs. The question was: what will she do? Besides 'twerking' with a dwarf during the award show's opening act - which included a rendition of her hit 'We Can't Stop' - there really wasn't that much to write home about regarding her performances. It was what she did to celebrate winning the Best Video award that won her the headlines.

Have the 1D boys delivered the "rockier" sound they promised on their new album? No, not really
Have the One Direction boys suddenly decided to commemorate Lady Diana, the People's Princess, to coincide with the release of the Naomi Watts-starring film, Diana? Unlikely, but the leak does seem to be rather well-timed.
A new One Direction Song Has Been Leaked.
The band have just landed in Australia for the down-under section of their tour after the recent box office success of their on the road documentary movie, This Is Us. The band may be strapped aboard a skyrocket to fame and fortune, but this didn't stop their new single 'Diana' being leaked over the weekend.

The Shamrock Parlour may be a favourite of David Beckham, but it has lost service from One Direction star Harry Styles - much to Freddy Negrete's despair.
One Direction singer Harry Styles has reportedly stopped visiting his Los Angeles tattoo artist, Freddy Negrete - much to the artist's surprise and devastation. The 19-year-old singer has attended the Shamrock Parlour (a favourite tattoo parlour of David Beckham) several times to be inked, yet it has emerged that he visited a different studio for the rose which was drawn onto his arm earlier in September, 2013.
Negrete spoke to 'The Daily Star' about his feelings of abandonment and betrayal, saying: ''Harry said he would be back. I did his first tattoo and a lot of them since, until the big one when he was here with [ex-girlfriend] Taylor Swift last year. I don't know why he's gone somewhere else now. I didn't do the rose. He didn't even get it here at the parlour. I don't know who did it.'' Negrete referred to Style's last visit in December 2012 with then-girlfriend, Taylor Swift, in which he got a large picture of a ship on his left arm.

Sienna Miller is not only everywhere at LFW, she's also been the next to share a smooch with the model Cara Delevingne.
Sienna Miller has made sure that everyone knows she's attended this year's London Fashion Week after she's been snapped left, right and centre at the heart of the style and action.
Sienna Caught The Pap's Attention In Her Furry Shrug.
Rocking a deep jade Burberry Prorsum shrug, Sienna arrived at the fashion house's Monday (16 Sept) show. Sienna's ties with the British fashion brand run deeper than her wardrobe: she's been the face of the brand this season, appearing in campaigns with her fiancé and the father of her daughter, Tom Sturridge.

Harry Styles has stolen the headlines so far at London Fashion Week
It seems as though London Fashion Week has been dominated by two characters: Cara Delevingne and Harry Styles. The latter isn't even anything to do with the thing, but he keeps turning up and stealing the headlines away from the various designers showing at this year's event.
Nick Grimshaw [L] and Harry Styles [R] At London Fashion Week on Tuesday
On Monday, Styles turned out to watch Delevingne on the catwalk and returned on Tuesday with his best pal Nick Grimshaw. The pair chatted away on the front row of the Fashion East show in the Topshop Show Space.
It's Liam's 20th and he's nothing but niceness.
Could Liam Payne, on his 20th birthday, be the most mature member of One Direction? After springing to his bandmate Harry Styles' defence after pop star Taylor Swift called him out in her VMAs acceptance speech, the singer has asked fans to donate to cancer charity Trekstock, if they'd like to give him a gift.
Liam Payne Hasn't Let Fame Turn Him Selfish.
This morning Liam greeted his fans by thanking them for the support in One Direction's short but stratospheric career. "Good morning everyone :) can't quite believe my life there's no bigger birthday present than what you've done for me in 3 years thank you xx," he wrote sweetly to the predictable storm of excited fan responses.
Filmmaker Spurlock (Super Size Me) is known for his investigative wit, but there's none of that in this on-message doc about the most successful boy band in history. Still, the fans won't be able to get enough of the backstage antics and lively performance clips. And those unfamiliar with One Direction will have fun too. Just don't expect to learn much about these five young men who continually say, "Back when we were little," even though they're still only 19-21 years old.
The filmmakers follow Niall, Zayn, Liam, Harry and Louis on their world tour, visiting four continents as they play nearly 130 concerts for their hysterical fans, who all seem to be pre-teen girls. As we see them larking around on-stage, in the wings and on their tour bus, we also get their back-story, as they auditioned individually for The X Factor in 2010 and were assembled as a group in a spontaneous decision by Cowell. Their global success is the result of a viral Twitter onslaught, and the fans also get their say on-screen, gushing with their love for these five skinny, mop-haired guys who have serious vocal talents but have yet to prove themselves as musicians.
While the film captures the boys' strong camaraderie, cheeky energy and constant pranks (including silly Jackass-style closing-credits clips), we never really learn much about them. There is no attempt to explore their off-stage identities, what they do in their down-time, their romantic lives or musical inspirations. Some depth is provided in interviews with their parents, who offer emotional insight into how fame has changed their families. Aside from some lively off-handed moments, their interviews feel carefully media-trained, and there's no commentary from anyone outside their inner circle. But they emerge as grounded, likeable young guys who know how lucky they are, so they're making the most of their success in the short time they have at the top.

Harry Styles is pleased his ex- girlfriend Taylor Swift is "a great songwriter" in case she chooses to immortalise their failed romance in her music. He discussed what sort of qualities he looks for in a girl and the difficulties of having relationships in the public eye.
Heartbreak is the most common theme in pop songs, especially when the lyrics are addressed to another famous ex. Harry Styles, the One Direction heartthrob, has said in an interview he expects his ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift to write songs about him. His pop group were interviewed by Us Weekly and Styles said "it would be hypocritical for me to say she couldn't do it because everybody writes songs based on personal experience." He, rather sensibly, accepts that in dating someone equally famous he is open to lyrical attacks. The 19-year-old also stated "I can't say I'd have dated someone less famous to avoid it."
Harry Styles at the New York premiere of One Direction's This Is Us.
However, there's still hope for the legions of One Direction fans who are not in the public eye. He claimed he considers dating everyone in the same was as "you like people for who they are, so I couldn't say I want to date someone less famous because of the hassle. You like who you like." Styles discussed what sort of girl he'd like to find. So if you have any of the following qualities, you may well be in for a chance: "someone with a cute laugh and a good smile"; "someone you can have fun with"; who enjoys "trying new things and going out new places."

Are Styles and Swift still into each other despite the multiple VMA disses? What really went on at the awards afterparty?
Anyone who saw footage of country singer Taylor Swift and One Direction's Harry Styles at the MTV video awards would never say that the former lovers still had lusty feelings for one another. The pair dated for a few months last winter and rumor has it that Taylor used the emotional fall-out from their January break-up to pen 'I Knew You Were Trouble' from her latest album, Red.
Did Harry Notice Taylor Shooting Daggers At Him For The Whole Evening?
The very same song was nominated, and won, the Best Female Video award at Sunday night's VMAs and Taylor made sure that, unlike Kanye West's notorious "Imma let you finish" moment, she managed to complete her acceptance speech unimpeded. However, this time Taylor's award acceptance made headlines for another reason.
Styles sat in the audience whilst Swift thanked the "person who inspired" her to write 'I Knew You Were Trouble.'
It's awkward enough having to run into an ex just once, let alone be in the same profession as them and see your relationship digested daily by the gossip press. Country pop singer Taylor Swift and One Direction's Harry Styles had to cross paths yet again at last night's MTV VMA awards ceremony in Brooklyn as the coveted 'moon men' awards were handed out for the year's best videos.
Taylor Stole The Evening's Style Awards In Hervé Leger.
There was a palpable tension in the room as both Swift and One Direction took home one award each. Taylor lifted the prize for 'Best Female Video' with 'I Knew You Were Trouble' and the One Direction boys were awarded 'Best Song of the Summer' for 'Best Song Ever.' Though there may have been no face-to-face interaction between Swift and Styles, who dated for several months last year, Swift's hackles were definitely raised as the cheeky British pop band were greeted with frenzied screams.
The two singers hooked up to sing a version of Goulding's track during Swift's recent sold-out performance at LA's Staple's Centre
As Taylor Swift continues her Red tour up and down the United States, so does her newfound tradition of bringing a little help on stage to treat her fans. At her show at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles, the pop-country star hooked up with UK pop sensation Ellie Goulding for a one off performance, with the two singing a version of 'Anything Could Happen' from Goulding's second album, Halcyon.
Swift played her 11th sold out show at the Staples Centre on Friday
As the Friday (August 23) show at the Staples Centre was drawing to an end, Taylor began introducing the Brit star to the unsuspecting audience. Previously during her tour, Swift has shared the stage with Carly Simon, indie duo Tegan & Sara and UK artist Cher Lloyd, and it's looking as though she has no plans to quit this Red-tradition any time soon.
One Direction is at the top, but Harry Styles himself might be on the rise on his own.
Clearly, One Direction are a phenomenon at present, but if you’re well versed in boyband history of the world, you’re aware that fame is always fleeting. So if we were to guess which one of the lads had the biggest chance of becoming the breakout star, the – for lack of a better term – Justin Timberlake of One Direction, we’d put our money on Harry Styles.
Are we seeing the familiar story unfold again?
For one thing, the young singer clearly enjoys the celebrity lifestyle and is already well versed in the art of making the gossip column on any given week. Lately, Harry’s exploits have been just that tiny bit scandalous, without spilling over into trainwreck territory. Take his appearance at the This Is Us premiere afterparty.

Gay or bisexual? The One Direction heart-throb says he's neither
Harry Styles has denied that he’s in a relationship with Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw. The pair have become very pally of late, attending parties together and the like, but Styles has moved to reassure his legions of fans that he is still in fact single, clearing up the bisexual rumour along the way by adding that he only has his eyes set on the ladies.
Asked if there was any truth to a possible romance between himself and Grimshaw, Styles said: “Oh, really? I didn’t even know. We’re not dating, no. We’re just friends.” And when asked whether or not he’s bisexual, Harry said: “Bisexual? Me? I don’t think so. I’m pretty sure I’m not.”
It doesn’t matter if he is or not, but we’re not sure he actually knows yet. Still, batting away rumours like this must get boring after a while, so he’s probably just having a little fun with it. “Some of them are funny. Some of them are ridiculous. Some of them are annoying,” he said of the constant stream of stories from the tabloids that seem to fixate on him.

Do the individual publishing deals suggest the boys are thinking about life after One Direction?
Ah, we was wondering when this was going to happen. One Direction have added a couple more million to their bank accounts, though this time they're thinking for themselves. Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne have signed SEPARATE publishing deals to cash in on all songs they have credits for writing.
It's a clear sign that the boys are beginning to look after their own interests following the phenomenal success of their first couple of years in the industry. The publishing deals are being overseen by Fingate, the company who also cash in on Elvis Presley's back catalogue as well as work by Britney Spears, Black Eyed Peas and Foo Fighters.
A source said: "This is a real statement of intent from the band. They have absolutely no intention of being spoon-fed pop puppets. They want to write and they want to earn as individuals." As well as the new deals, each of the five members have also invested in their own studio set-ups at home and have been attending writing sessions together after gigs. On their latest record Take Me Home, the band had three songs with individual writing credits while the others were penned by outsider songwriters. The group did not have a hand in writing the three biggest hits from the album, Live While We're Young, Kiss You and Little Things.

Harry Styles will be the best man at his mother's wedding on Saturday.
One Direction star Harry Styles will be the best man at his mother Anne Cox's wedding on Saturday. Harry's mother, 43, is set to marry her long-term partner Robin Twist, who helped bring up the pop star after his parents split when he was seven year's old, reports the Daily Record.
It should be a star-studded day, with all the members of One Direction attending. Anne even picked the date to fit with the boy-band's hectic touring schedule and guests were told to keep the details of the nuptials firmly under wraps to avoid any unwanted press attention. However, it is thought the event may be held somewhere close to their home in the north-west.
Office worker Anne, who divorced Harry's father Des, has always supported her son's ambitions to be a singer and the pair are believed to enjoy a hugely close relationship. Harry and the boys were invited to stay at Anne's bungalow for a week as they prepared for the live x factor finals in 2010. Though she eventually finished third, the group has since gone on to become the most successful British boy-band of all time, topping the charts on both sides of the Atlantic.

Harry Styles was met by a throng of female fans outside his Paris hotel on Monday.
One Direction singer Harry Styles was "nearly crushed to death" by a mob of screaming girls in Paris on Monday (April 29, 2013). The heartthrob was leaving Hotel Amour on Rue Navarin without proper security and was consequently pounced upon by a female crowd that went bananas, reports TMZ.com.
A couple of aides attempted to get Styles to his car, but the horde almost swallowed him whole and he lost his beanie hat in the process. One of Harry's minders struggles to wade through the crowds, before realising that he'd left the boy-bander behind and attempting to get back to the young star. It's absolute mayhem, and the hotel's nice roses take a bit of a beating too.

One Direction’s Harry Styles is famous for his way with women. He’s young, good-looking and rich, therefore he can pretty much have any girl he wants. Of course, having sampled people his own age, he’s heading to double it.
The lady in question is Rod Stewart’s daughter Kimberly Stewart. The starlet was mobbed by adoring fans – all to young for him – at a Los Angeles Airport after he had allegedly spent the night with the 33-year-old. A source close to Harry said: “He gets on well with many women, and it’s no secret that they are usually older than him. He was on holiday in LA and Rod asked him if he fancied a night out. He said yes right away and he and Kimberly got on very well indeed. The next morning they drove to a Starbucks together where Harry jumped out of the car to buy a coffee for himself and Kim – who was waiting for him,” the insider told the Daily Mirror. “He kept a straight face but looked a little pleased with himself.” The pair were on a night out at to see Rod, 68, play world-famous music venue Troubadour before heading to the Dan Tana restaurant in Beverly Hills.
So does this herald a new era of dating older women for Harry? At 19, he’s either mature beyond his years or rich beyond his years, and we’re pretty sure we know which one it is. Still, at least with the older woman, things can only go in one direction.

Niall Horan has apparently settled down with fellow Irish girl Zoe Whelan.
Niall Horan has gone and broken the little hearts of many, many One Direction fans this week, by hooking up with Irish model Zoe Whelan. The 19-year-old is said to have met Zoe backstage at one of the group's concerts and has been dating her for a number of months, according to The Sun.
"Niall has been secretly seeing Zoe for a couple of months after he met her backstage," an insider revealed. "She's a Dubliner but is based in London to work on her modelling career. Zoe's travelled all over the UK to meet up with Niall on the band's tour." Things appear to have got serious between the pair, and Horan took Zoe to meet the rest of his family at the wedding of his brother Greg in their hometown of Mullingar last month. "The biggest sign he's really serious about her is that he introduced her to his whole family at his brother's wedding," the insider added, "Zoe's the first girlfriend Niall has brought back to his hometown of Mullingar since making it big, so it was a big deal and the talk of his family at the wedding."
Niall is the latest One Direction member to enter into a serious relationship. Liam and Louis are thought to have steady girlfriends, though Zayn is on-and-off with Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards. Harry Styles is, well, Harry Styles.

An unusual mixture of celebrities, Harry Styles, Noel Gallagher and Miles Kane are spotted among revellers at London's Groucho Club.
What do you get when you cross Harry Styles with Noel Gallagher and Miles Kane? Well, if you'd attended the Groucho Club last night you might've got some idea as the three of them were spotted enjoying a few drinks at the private members club. Though we're still not sure if they even spoke to each other, the thought of them together is a little bizarre and not only because of the One Direction hunk being thrown into the mix, but also for High Flying Birds star Noel, who must've had the shock of his life when he spotted Miles Kane pulling up who bears a remarkable resemblance to Noel's estranged brother Liam Gallagher. The dapper suit and tie might've given the game away though, even if the hair is spot on.
One Direction spokespeople are frantically denying reports that Harry Styles is working on solo material with good pal Ed Sheeran.
One Direction representatives have been forced to deny that Harry Styles is preparing for life away from the band after reports over the weekend suggested the teen heartthrob had been working on solo material in the studio. The Brit boy-band star has reportedly written several of his own tunes and has laid numerous tracks down with an unknown producer.
A pal told the Daily Mirror, "He loves messing around with some of the new songs he's been working on. He's bounced some ideas off his friend Ed Sheeran and has already laid down some vocals." The pop pair are known to be close friends and it's not beyond the realms of possibility that Sheeran has written material for his camera-friendly buddy. However, a One Direction representative had an explanation for the whole thing, saying, "The boys are all working on the new 1D album together and sometimes sessions are recorded separately."
Styles' pal appeared convinced that the 19-year-old was in the studio to work on his own stuff. "Harry's priority is obviously still with 1D. But when he decides the time to go solo has arrived, he's likely to have a project raring to go," they added.

The Manchester United footballer Rio Ferdinand has struck up an unlikely friendship with 19 year-old Harry Styles
Harry Styles has got a new man in his life. Harry, 19, is often spotted out and about, socialising with older guys, like Nick Grimshaw and James Corden but it looks as though a brand new high-profile bromance is developing for young Harry. The One Direction singer spent much of his weekend hanging out with the Manchester United footballer Rio Ferdinand and there was a whole bunch of reciprocal backslapping going on, with Harry eating at Rio’s restaurant and watching Man U play Reading. Rio even went to a One Direction concert and managed to survive being in an arena full of screaming women.
Harry Styles, showing his love for Manchester United
Rio Ferdinand went to watch the boy band when their tour rolled into Manchester on Saturday and tweeted “Just at the 1Direction concert....ear drums are struggling...never heard so much screaming!! Aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh!!! Lads on fire!” Having survived the… er… experience, Rio got Harry a VIP ticket for the match and even kept his restaurant, Rosso open until 2am so that he and Harry could grab a meal together. To reciprocate the Twitter support, Harry posted a picture of himself wearing a Manchester United shirt with Rio’s surname on the back.
Is Harry Styles a 12 girls a night kind of guy?
Harry Styles has gone from being the adorable member of One Direction to a “sex mad” pop-star in no time at all. That’s according to a source who spoke to The Daily Star, at least, and Styles reportedly had a dozen girls waiting to spend the night with him...
The source said: "It's incredible, he seems to have at least three or four girls in his room every night. He’s totally out of control. Harry is totally brazen about it. He spots a girl he likes at a gig or when he’s out and about, goes right up to her and invites her to his hotel,” they added. “He's sex mad – it's no wonder Taylor Swift couldn’t keep up with him and things ended badly." One Direction are currently touring The U.K and Ireland, which, theoretically at least, gives the young womaniser a huge choice of girls. He showed this at a recent Belfast gig, giving his number to a fan in the crowd and inviting her back to his hotel room after the show. “He's had up to a dozen waiting on a single night. They all seem overjoyed to be invited back,” the source added. "The rest of the lads all hang out after gigs and watch movies or play their computer games. But Harry goes off with a harem of girls and you don’t see him until the next day."
It's been a rough week for Justin Bieber, though arguably a tougher couple of days for Ashton Kutcher, Jay-Z and company, who found their bank details leaked all over the internet.
Bieber Blues: What is happening to Justin Bieber? The former loveable scamp appears to have become a target for the tabloids, especially the British ones. He endured a torrid time in London before cancelling a show in Portugal, apparently owing to poor ticket sales. Is this a crisis?
Credit Check: Ever wondered how much Ashton Kutcher has in the bank? How about Jay-Z, Mel Gibson, Hillary Clinton, Arnold Schwarzenegger or even Joe Biden. Well, one hacker - seemingly based in Russia - has posted the financial details of the world's biggest stars onto a hastily made website. Some of the numbers are big. Huge, in fact.
Harry Styles gets a new tattoo
We like Harry Styles; we like One Direction – the little poppy scamps. But one think we can’t abide is Harry Styles’ choice of ink. And his latest – a pretty extravagant butterfly – has to be his worst yet. It’s just massive, and it’s right across his chest. Still, if he wants it removed, we reckon he can probably afford it.
A Tattoo based tweet got the boys in trouble, too. They posted: "Have a real #1D tattoo? Show us! Submit a 90 sec YouTube video to firstname.lastname@example.org and show us why you should be in the @1D3Dmovie!" This didn’t go down well, especially considering 99.99% of their fans are under 18, and therefore unable to get a tattoo within the confines of the law. Just in case you were wondering; we’re the 0.01%. Spokesman Simon Jones said in a statement: "This tweet was posted in error and has now been removed. One Direction do not want to encourage any of their fans to get 1D tattoos." The tweet wasn’t deleted in time though, and received thousands of retweets and screenshots before it disappeared. In less inky, and slightly more positive news, the One Direction boys have been handed waxy tribute at Madame Tussauds.

One Direction's Harry Styles has left fans deeply divided over his new tattoo.
Harry Styles is no stranger to body art, though his latest tattoo is his biggest and boldest yet. Tattoo artist Liam Sparkes posted a Flickr image on January 22, 2013, and although it Harry's face is not visible, a representative for the One Direction singer confirmed to E! Online that it's definitely him in the snap.
This time around, the tattoo is a large butterfly inked in the middle of his chest. It's all a bit weird looking to be fair. There's little wrong with the actual art, though it's RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE ON HIS CHEST. Anyway, it's no big deal to the young heartthrob, given that he's already got nearly 30 tattoos on his body, including a big black heart on his arm and two little birds on his chest. He also has a ship on his arm. One Twitter user appeared to get to the bottom of the latest tattoo, saying, "Butterflys in your stomach... I see what you did there," though we're not sure Styles will have been thinking of that. He'll take it though.
Another user said, "why doesnt he just tattoo "IM GAY" on his forehead," while one fan tweeted, "Did you guys see Harry Styles new body tattoo? Can't say its my fave... kind of resembles a giant moth :S"

LA's Shamrock tattoo parlour has inked some of the world's most famous people from Johnny Depp to David Beckham and Anjelina Jolie. While you'd think a pale, skinny teenager from the UK might not be the kind of clientele they're used to, when it's Harry Styles the expectations have to bend a little. Tattooist Freddy Negrete spoke to the Daily Star about Harry's likes, dislikes and all about his ex, Taylor Swift.
According to Freddy, it was pretty clear they weren't going to last: "Harry and Taylor didn't seem in love at all. There wasn't a sparkle in Harry's eye. They seemed more like friends. Harry wasn't in love and it wasn't serious for him. They weren't romantic at all." Some have speculated that he got his latest ship tattoo for Swift, but that's not true. Despite the country singer sitting in on the ink session what, Harry wanted was something to remind him of home. He told Freddy: "We're always on the road but my heart is at home and I want a ship.'"
Harry is a favourite customer of Shamrocks now and Freddy likes him a lot, saying "It's always fun. We have a great time. He's witty and I like that."

The One Direction fan who launched a shoe at Harry Styles has owned up
The evil culprit behind Harry Styles' shoe to the groin has finally owned up...and, er, it's a 14-year-old girl called Jade Anderson. Oh. Turns out the mystery assailant was nothing more than an over-excited One Direction fan who got so worked up about seeing her boys in action that she just had to launch her shoe in the direction of Harry's private parts.
Jade - who hails from East Kilbride - perhaps stupidly announced the news on Twitter, for all the 1D fans to read and sharpen their knives to.
"Tonight i threw my shoe and it hit harry in the balls then security came and took me out the concert then i got my shoe back hahahaha," Jade said on the micro-blogging site. However, security weren't going to kick her out simply because of some shoe-to-the-groin action and she was eventually allowed to return to the concert - just not within throwing distance. "The only reason the security let me back in is cos harry told them too," she added, before making a directly apologize to the 19-year-old. "harry_styles I'm the one that threw my shoe at you, i never meant to hurt you.Feel sooo ill now.

Harry Styles was hit in the groin by a flying shoe during a One Direction show in Glasgow.
Harry Styles was an unfortunate victim to the classic shoe-in-the-groin prank at a show in Glasgow on Tuesday night (February 26, 2013). Ok so it's not a well-known prank as such, but you get what happened: something through a shoe right at his groin, leaving the young boy-band star writhing in pain on the ground. The pain was too much for Styles, who attempted to retain his balance before giving in and hitting the deck.
"Man down! Man down!" shouted Liam Payne as he and Zayn Malik ran over to their bandmate's aid. After a couple of moments, poor old Harry was back on his feet and ready to restart the song, despite still looking in pain. It's not the first time the 19-year-old has been bruised during One Direction's current tour. During Sunday's show at the O2 Arena, he was punched in the groin by Liam, again dropping to his knees in pain.
The multi-million selling group kicked off their Take Me Home tour in London earlier this year and it's a long road ahead for the boys, visiting Europe, American, Mexico, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and Japan. We dread to think how much cash they're all going to make from this one. Let's call it an even £10 million each, sound fair?

Nick Grimshaw was accused of being still drunk when presenting his Radio 1 Breakfast Show this morning
Lily Allen suggested Nick Grimshaw was "still hammered" from the BRIT Awards during his hosting of the Radio 1 Breakfast Show this morning. The hungover DJ had spent all night partying with pal Harry Styles, firstly attending the awards show before heading to the Warner music after-party at The Savoy Hotel and the Universal bash at Soho House. Nick and Harry emerged from the DJ's house at 6am and jumped in a cab to the Radio 1 studio.
Grimshaw had managed to change into a comfortable t-shirt and jeans, though Harry was still wearing his party tuxedo from the evening before. As the comical show unfolded, Nick's pal Lil Allen tweeting him, "You sound hammered still," while one furious Twitter user said, "Having to turn off @R1Breakfast as listening to a drunk harry styles stumble through his performance is too cringey. Sort it out @grimmers." Another said, "Everyone is still very drunk this morning I the Breakfast Show. Please stop slurring your words boys. @grimmers @Harry_Styles."

Liam Payne dubbed 80's pop icon Boy George "weird" after a run-in at the Brits
The One Direction boys seemed in pretty high spirits at the BRIT Awards in London last night. There was Harry, dancing around the stage like a lunatic, Louis helping himself to the complimentary fizz, Zayn looking all mysterious and broody, and the little Irish fella was presumably just happy to be there. But what about Liam? Something appeared to have riled our Liam, and we may have found the answer. Ready for this? Deep breath.
80's pop star Boy George - who debuted a slimmer, altogether healthier look this week - was at the bash with his young niece, getting snaps with her favourite pop stars. Now, there appears to have been some confusion when the One Direction boys came there way. Later on Twitter, the Karma Chameleon hit-maker wrote, "Top marks to Harry Styles for stopping for a picture with my niece and B*llox's to Liam and the disrespectful w**ker of a minder!" adding, "Stars of the night, Harry Styles, Lana Del Rey, Jessie J. Too many drug f**ked twits to mention elsewhere! Emily Sande (sic) was great!" George later suggested Harry Styles would leave the band, saying, "You heard it here first!"
They grow up so fast, don’t they? Time was Harry Styles would get in the news for staying out after 9pm. Now he’s maturely responding to break up questions and giving us the lowdown on his pre-Brits jitters to Capital FM.
Asked about the situation with Taylor Swift, especially considering they’re both performing at The Brits tonight, Styles wouldn’t be drawn into making any silly comments. He just knows she’ll write the next best-selling hit about it if he does. "She's a great performer. She always performs great and she's always good on the stage," Styles says, expertly diverting the question towards Swift’s proficiency as a performer. "She's done it for a long time. She knows what she's doing on stage. It was just another good Taylor Swift performance. It was good." Harry was talking to Capital FM, who posted a picture of the star looking pretty comfortable in his grey sweats alongside presenter Max.
Conversation also drifted onto tonight’s performance of One Way or Another – the band’s charity single. "I'm a little bit tired," Harry admitted. "I couldn't sleep very well last night! I was really nervous," he continued, adding "I don't know [why], there was no one even in the room!" Styles also hinted at a surprise special guest. "Well, there's one dressing room that just says special guest,” he said, “which always makes everyone wonder"

Rita Ora Stayed The Night At Football Agent Dave Gardner's House
Rarely apart from her new best-bud Cara Delevingne, Rita Ora braved the photographers alone on Tuesday afternoon (February 19, 2013), emerging from the Notting Hill home of football agent Dave Gardner at 2pm following an all-night party.
We say all-nighter, though pals Delevingne and Harry Styles actually left the bash in the early hours. For whatever reason, Rita stayed the night, wearing the same clothes and shoes as the previous evening when finally emerging today. Looking a little sheepish, the Radioactive hitmaker kept her eyes firmly on the ground as she wandered down Gardner's grand looking steps and out into the street. A large pair of sunglasses shielded her face, though Rita was clearly lacking the vibrant makeup she had donned for the Dazed and Confused party at Café Royal on Monday night. She wore the same checked high-waisted trousers and long matching coat, though had swapped her pink crop top for a different tee.
Taylor Swift has reportedly got a member of The Lumineers in her sights after her split from One Direction's Harry Styles
Taylor Swift is already moving on from One Direction's Harry Styles, setting her sights on a member of country rockers The Lumineers. According to Hollywood Life.com, Taylor isn't bothered which one of the guys she dates, so long as they're a signed up member of the band, who were nominated for Best New Artist at the Grammy Awards 2013.
A source close to the 23-year-old revealed, "Taylor would love to date one one of the guys from The Lumineers. She's embarrassed about all of the Harry drama, and is definitely looking for someone who is more down-to-earth and away from the Hollywood lifestyle. She thinks they are all cute and talented, and she loves their album." Watch out guys! Taylor Swift is coming for you, and she usually doesn't take no for an answer. The source added, "Their country vibe is great and she thinks it would be a good mix."
So, Swift has put her next breakup song into motion, but who are The Lumineers and which member will feature heavily in the lyrics of Taylor's next album? The folk-rock quartet from Denver, Colorado, consists of Wesley Schultz, Jeremiah Fraites, Stelth Ulvang and Ben Wahamaki and female member Neyla Pekarek. Wesley and Jeremiah both have girlfriends, but Stelth and Ben may be available.

We all love One Direction, no, seriously we do, but how much do we really know about Harry Styles and the rest of the gang? Not nearly enough, according to the boys and their paymasters, which is why they’re releasing a behind the scenes documentary directed by, oddly, Super Size Me creator Morgan Spurlock. Now you can view the first trailer from the doc, titled 1D 3D.

They're the biggest boyband in the world since coming third in the seventh series of 'The X Factor' in 2011 and they've had two number one multi-platinum albums since their inception. One Direction are now here on the big screen in their first movie which chronicles their rollercoaster lives and dramatic pop career over the past year or so. We'll see the die hard devotion of their army of fans, how the boys feel about being away from their home and families all the time, how they've built such a strong, brotherly bond as a group and their general boyish shenanigans.

That is, of course, if you believe the Facebook scam that fooled many. "The famous singer Taylor Swift had her iPhone hacked Monday and a sex tape between her and former boyfriend Harry Styles has been leaked on the Internet," read a post on the social networking site. "Taylor's publicists are trying to take down all of the websites hosting it, but we found a working one! Watch the video before it's taken down!" It turns out any eager Facebooker who clicked on that link were redirected to sites asking for some personal details. That's when you KNOW it's a scam. Poor Swift, having her name used just to get clicks.
The celebrity sex tape, unfortunately, has become big business amongst the stars, with some even partaking in the video-naughty to boost their careers. That's what people like Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton have been accused of, given that their respective tapes are synonymous with their names. There isn't, we repeat, isn't a Taylor Swift sex tape, and we'd hedge our bets that the wholesome country pop star will never, ever, ever be subject to one.

Harry Styles just turned 19, despite having already experienced more than many 30 year olds (a fling with a model, a relationship with an international celebrity, world tours, and international stardom) and just in case he hadn't already been privy to a £100 strip tease from a stripper, Nick Grimshaw was on hand at Styles' birthday celebrations to sort that out, the Daily Mail reports.
Described by the Mail as a 'boozy party', Styles and pals Grimshaw, Miquita Oliver and Pixie Geldof (among 35 others) enjoyed plenty of beer, wine, margaritas, Jagerbombs and the obligatory celebratory champagne. Sometime during the evening a stripper was brought out for a £100 ten-minute strip tease especially for the birthday boy.
A source told the Mail that: "Nick seemed pretty pleased with himself when the stripper started her routine. He found it hilarious. Harry seemed embarrassed and didn't know where to look, but he took it in good spirit." But when Harry himself spoke of the situation to The Sun, he seemed to look upon the whole event more favourably, saying "I was in stitches, it was really funny... unfortunately there was a no nudity policy in the bar."
This lad looks like he's been celebrating his birthday in style. Harry Styles stepped out last week to ring in his 19th birthday and certainly didn't leave anything out on the streets of Soho as he and his crew partied until 4am, calling in around a number of the London area's trendiest hotspots. The One Direction member turned up with a lovely looking blonde lady, and left with her some hours later - though admittedly the pair of them weren't looking quite so lovely at that point.

What is it about London's Groucho Club that has celebrities returning week-in-week-out? Harry Styles, the youngest member of One Direction, turns 19-years-old today (January 31, 2013) and chose London's hippest venue as the place to party with ex-girlfriends Caroline Flack and Cara Devalinge and pals James Corden and Nick Grimshaw on Thursday evening. The boys had started the evening at a Mexican restaurant, but all roads led to London's most infamous hangout - an unassuming members' club in the heart of London's Soho district.
Caroline Flack turned up wearing a red fur jacket and some futuristic heels, while Cara opted for leather trousers and a striped jacket following an appearance at Burberry's bash at their flagship store in Regent Street. Harry and Caroline have been close since they dated for three-months when he was 17, with the Xtra Factor presenter describing him as "brilliant and so much fun." On Thursday, Styles opted for a weird looking shiny blazer, while Radio 1 breakfast DJ Grimshaw went for a fitted black jacket. In all fairness, Corden was probably the best dressed of the guys, in jeans, a shirt and smart sweater.
One Direction's resident lady's man, Harry Styles, is hard to keep up with when it comes to his never ending list of arm candy, so spare a thought for his mum the next time you're trying to recount his many liaisons, as she is kept firmly in the loop of all his romantic happenings.
Since he found fame on the X Factor with the rest of the 1D boys, it seems Harry has been determined to get it on with just about every woman he comes in contact with, with the media struggling to keep up with the lothario's ways. But as Harry told Metro this week, one person who knows exactly what's going on is his mum, as he told the paper, “I tell her everything and she knows the truth.”
Harry's most recent relationship was with fellow tween star, country/pop singer Taylor Swift, with the two splitting up earlier this year. True to form though, Swift wasn't one to hang about and already she's rumoured to be dating again, with Michael J Fox's son reportedly being the next person to be taken in by her southern charm. As for Harry, well we're sure he's not too hung up over the split too much either. That said, recent revelations have emerged that say the two are trying to patch up their failed relationship and are going to have one last go at making things work. Not to seem pessimistic or anything, but somehow we don't quite see the two getting back together again for good anytime soon. But hey, stranger things have happened.
"The NME Awards is the highlight of the music calendar and the most Rock'n'roll party of the year," says NME editor Mike Williams. He's not wrong, and this year's nominations, which have just been released, prove to make this year's party even better.
The bands to be most proud of their nominations this year are new-comers Haim and Tame Impala, both of which have never been nominated in the awards before. Haim's nominations are for 'Best New Band', 'Best Track', 'Best Music Video' and 'Best Twitter' for Alana Haim (@babyhaim). We're not entirely sure what makes a good Twitter, but we're sure she deserves it, mostly because she posted a photo of her kissing a trout. Tame Impala's nominations are for 'Best International Band', 'Best Album', 'Best Track' and 'Best Music Video'. Also with four nominations each are veterans The Rolling Stones, and controversial act, M.I.A.
This year's heroes and villains are an interesting bunch with Harry Styles and David Cameron undoubtedly leading the troupe for the villains, while Frank Ocean, Barack Obama and Pussy Riot are all up for the Hero award.
People have assumed everything, from the plausible – that Mr Styles simply wasn’t ready to commit to a relationship – to the rather ridiculous – that it was Swift’s love of antiques that drove off the One Direction singer. After the announcement that Taylor was back in the studio, anticipation was (and still is) high of a breakup song, scorning her latest boyfriend. And while the supposed leaked track turned out to be (unsurprisingly) a fake, there is one thing that is certain about the split – Harry isn’t taking any time to mourn the relationship.
After the breakup, Taylor flew to LA to get on with life, supposedly, but Harry preferred to stay on the holiday wavelength. He popped in on Richard Branson’s island retreat, Necker Island, where he supposedly partied the pain away alongside Branson and the rather beautiful TV presenter Hermione Way (if you haven’t heard the name, don’t worry, we hadn’t either). Sources, close to the 18-year-old One Directioner say that nothing happened between him and Miss Way, because it was so close to the split with Swift, but nevertheless, it seems like Harry isn’t exactly in a post-breakup slump. If he isn’t careful, he may as well find himself at the wrong end of one of Taylor’s scornful ballads. Well, those two are certainly never ever getting back together.
They packed in three holidays - Utah, England and the Caribbean - plus, two special events - Swift's Birthday and NYE. If they'd have stayed together undoubtedly every single waking second would have continued in one another's company. They'd have spent half their lives in the air flying to one another in a negotiation between their two tours and families. Luckily though, they broke up and now they both have tons of spare time. Swift has reportedly been in the studio singing about her newly broken heart. But what will Harry do? Holiday and party with the boys? Okay!
The Sun reports that Styles and new best pal Justin Bieber want to jet to Las Vegas together given that they're both now single. They've vacationed together before - their Utah vacay was an extended double date back when Biebz was with Selena Gomez, but that's up the spout now too.
Taylor Swift and Harry Styles seemed like one of the best couples to come out of pop-music since Justin and Britney, but it seems their good luck and talent couldn't keep them together and they split while on vacation last week. Reports say it was because Swift couldn't handle all the attention from other girls Harry gets, a fear that seems to be valid as he's been snapped with a new woman, Yahoo reports.
According to the website, Styles left a London flat with a blonde woman, who by the photos looks much older than him. They got straight into a waiting car, with Harry trying in vain to avoid the cameras. The blonde, in a navy sweater, leggings and a leather jacket, wasn't in the least camera shy. He looked pretty glum though, so while this girl could have been a new love interest, it's far more likely that she's just a friend.
Having spent two months (almost) solidly together 24/7 they're bound to miss one another. Luckily though, both Harry and Taylor have plenty to keep their minds off the other with busy schedules ahead. One Direction has just released the video for their next single 'Kiss You', and Swift is set to be performing at the Grammys this year, plus they're both going on tour.
