The 23 year old star aired his grievances on Twitter, where he vented: “Is bad mouthing The X Factor the only way The Voice knows how to promo their show? #everyyear.” Later, he said: "it's like Accrington Stanley trying to compete with Real Madrid.”

We never thought we'd be going 'Awwwwww!' while looking at pictures of One Direction, but the hairy co-star of their forthcoming new music video 'Steal My Girl' is killing us with unwavering cuteness. Those easily overwhelmed, look away now.

It was surprising, not to mention mildly amusing, when it was announced that Danny DeVito would be making an appearance in the video - it made us, admittedly, a little bit curious. But now that we've seen the other special guest on the set, a sunglasses-wearing chimpanzee, we're eager to see him in action.

One Direction's Drug Scandal: Is Smoking Marijuana Considered Shocking Anymore?


One Direction Louis Tomlinson Zayn Malik Liam Payne Harry Styles Niall Horan Simon Cowell Miley Cyrus

Being caught with a joint is really nothing new in the world of pop, especially amongst those aggressively seeking a change of image that will subsequently add a semblance of ‘edge’ to their persona. For child stars especially, in attempts to free themselves from their enforced clean-cut youth and iconic childhood roles, to indulge in the smoking of marijuana is the go-to method of both distancing oneself from the past and declaring oneself as a fully independent adult.

One Direction
The group have come under fire from the tabloids for Zayn and Louis' actions.

The celebrity world abounds with examples of such exploits. Remember the media storm over Justin Bieber’s incident with a “suspicious cigarette” or Miley Cyrus’ bong exploits, which have now evolved into her free and consistent utilization of marijuana symbolism? The celebrity media loves a scandal more than a Republican loves his right to bear firearms, but whilst the current One Direction drug ‘scandal’ has rather predictably been plastered all over the tabloid’s front pages, the majority of the public greets it with a collective shrug of the shoulders. They are, after all, adolescents- the prime age for indulging in experimentation with illicit substances and activities. Most adults will have indulged in similar instances of experimentation with an array substances at a similar age to these patchy-bearded pop stars. In terms of the pop world, this particular act has been seen many times before; so many times, in fact, that the whole ‘rebellion’ phase is part and parcel of the child actor discourse. Some take it just a little too far, and the ensuing descent into drugs has unfortunately claimed the lives of many of Hollywood’s exploited youngsters.

So, Are One Direction Splitting Up?


One Direction Harry Styles Liam Payne

One Direction may have walked away with their fourth BRIT award on Wednesday (this time the award acknowledged their Global Success) but that hasn’t stopped talk of One Direction splitting up. 1D was formed in 2010 after they finished third in the seventh series of The X Factor and have since gone on to achieve worldwide fame, as well as accumulating an extremely spirited and vocal bunch of fans along the way. Their three albums have broken all sorts of records and have topped global charts so the last thing that anybody expected was the shocking revelation that they may have come to the end of the line (note educated reference to ultimate 1990’s boy band lyric).

The rumours that One Direction are splitting up began when member Liam Payne revealed that the award ceremony last Wednesday marked the first time that band members had seen in each other for three months. Fans flew into a panic that their favourite bunch of cheeky chaps are apparently not in as close contact as they would like the believe, fueling rumours that if the boys haven’t been in touch perhaps they are on rocky ground.

One Direction: This Is Us Review


Good

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.

Beginning Of The End? One Direction Sign INDIVIDUAL Publishing Deals


One Direction Harry Styles Louis Tomlinson Niall Horan Zayn Malik Liam Payne Britney Spears Black Eyed Peas Foo Fighters Elvis Presley

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.

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!"

Liam Payne Ditches The Turkey In Favour Of Christmas Curry


Liam Payne Harry Styles One Direction

One Direction's Liam Payne said "to hell with tradition" and ditched the customary christmas turkey this year, going out for a Christmas curry with his family instead. Don't worry about the multi-millionaire's wallet though, because he had his parents pay for the meal (it is Christmas after all).

The 19-year-old boyband star went out, for the second year in a row apparently, to the local tandoori restaurant with his parents Geoff and Karen and sisters Nicola and Ruth in his native Wolverhampton to chow down on shish kebabs, naan bread and chicken tikka bhuna, rather than pigs in blankets, stuffing and roast vegetables. We're not entirely sure which meal option we would opt for ourselves, come to think of it.

Speaking to The Mirror, the restaurant's manager Jay Uddin said Liam always sticks to his favourite curry, and is something of a regular at the Penn Tandoori. He said, “He (Liam) pre-booked about two weeks in advance for the dinner and they came last Christmas as well, so it’s become a bit of a tradition with them now. Liam’s a regular and he used to visit the restaurant lots with his parents before he became famous. He loves his chicken tikka bhuna."

Harry Styles' Unfinished Tattoo: 'Things I C***'?


Harry Styles One Direction Louis Tomlinson Liam Payne

Harry Styles' might want to book his tattoo appointments for times that fit his schedule, as walking around with unfinished ink is just not cool, especially when it looks like he's got 'Things I C***' written on his arm.

The One Directioner was papped landing in L.A with his One Direction cronies, and some eagle eyed cameraman got a nifty close up of his latest - and unfinished - ink, and is it just us or does it contain a rather unsavoury profanity? Most outlets say the ink reads 'Things I can' and 'Things I can't' on Hazza's left and right forearm. But the latter looks suspiciously like the C-word. You need to get those tats finished before you show them off Harry; can't and c*** are too similar! During an appearance on Irish chat show, The Late Late Show, Harry revealed that he had been to the tattoo parlour that same day but refused to show them off as they were still bandaged up. He also declined to say what the tattoos actually meant, but his band mate Nial Horan quickly said: "It's a London thing," the Daily Mail reported.

The Ex-X-factor boys are in Los Angeles to perform on the U.S version of the show that made them famous. They're also set to meet up with Ellen DeGeneres on her show before Harry comes back to Dublin to get that tattoo finished up!
