Directed by Grant Singer, the video sees the pop superstars enjoying the luxuries of celebrity - hotels, champagne, paparazzi - but knowing it's not enough when they are apart. It's classy and it's sexy, an elegant veil over the otherwise hair-raisingly erotic content of the film itself.

The news that Zayn Malik had left One Direction shook pop fans all across the world and devoted followers of the band have been left devastated that their once fabulous five have gone down to a frugal four.
One Direction: From five to four
However, 1D have proved that they’re ready to move on having made their first appearance without Zayn on James Corden’s Late Late Show in America.
After Louis and Zayn’s twitter spat the band are looking to move on with an awards show appearance.
One Direction will be appearing at next weekend’s Billboard Music Awards, in their first public outing since Zayn Malik quit the band back in March. Billboard have confirmed that Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Niall Horan will all be in attendance at the ceremony, where they will be presenting a trophy.
One Direction, now without Zayn Malik.
The group will surely be hoping to put recent dramas behind them with the appearance as they step out for the first time as a fourpiece. Last month former member Zayn Malik made his first public appearance since leaving the band, at the Asian Awards in London.
All it took was one very 'naughty boy' to start a boyband Twitter fight of epic proportions.
Mayweather vs Pacquiao might have been billed as the fight of the century last weekend, but don’t underestimate the drama which can occur when a former boyband member, his producer and his ex-bandmate get into a twitter spat. Yes just over a month after One Direction went from five to four, it appears the gloves are well and truly off between former member Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson.
Zayn announced his departure from the boyband back in March.
It all started on Wednesday afternoon, when producer Naughty Boy, who’s been working with Zayn on solo material, tweeted an pic of the pair using an image filter along with the caption, ‘Replace this’.
Malik's friend, producer Naughty Boy, also got involved in the social media spat on Wednesday.

If you got the chance to ask Stephen Hawking about anything, surely Zayn Malik would top the list?
We all know Stephen Hawking is a genius who can give us answers on some of the universe’s most mind-boggling questions. So what better person is there to ask about the most troubling and puzzling question of recent times, what is the cosmological effect of Zayn leaving One Direction?
Stephen Hawking may have just given million of One Directioners hope.
Professor Hawking was speaking at the Sydney Opera House on Saturday night via a 3D hologram projection from his actual location at Cambridge University in the U.K. During the talk Hawking answered questions from his daughter, journalist Lucy Hawking and physicist Paul Davies, as well as audience members at the Opera house.

After nearly a month of social media silence, former One Direction member Zayn Malik has tweeted for the first time since his departure from the group in the middle of the South East Asian leg of their world tour.
“Wanna say thanks to everyone that's been there for me over the last few weeks,” he wrote. “Love you all.. you know who you are x.” Nothing too profound or revelatory, but it’s a sign that the 22 year old is ready to re-engage with the world and, perhaps, some word of solo material.

The boys have given their first interview since the departure of Zayn Malik.
It’s been a tough couple of weeks for One Direction and the group’s legion of fans, but it seems the boys are beginning to come to terms with Zayn Malik's exit.

Will the world's cutest chimpanzee make you watch One Direction's new video?
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.
The 21 year-old singer reveals how the comedian congratulated One Direction for their performance at the Olympics closing ceremony in 2012.

Once again, One Direction have become front page news, but do people really find their recent drugs 'scandal' shocking?
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.
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.

A video of One Direction members Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson purportedly smoking weed has been leaked. Will it damage the band's reputation and popularity?
It’s the leaked video that everyone’s been talking about, but will JointGate damage One Direction’s pristine reputation? The boys have carved out a pretty clean cut image for themselves, could Louis and Zayn (now dubbed 'Zouis' by fans) have bought down the 1D Kingdom with a few little tokes?
First things first, what actually happened? Well, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson, who make up 2/5 of the world’s most successful boyband One Direction, were caught on tape alledgedly smoking cannabis in Peru. The leaked video, which was published by the MailOnline, was allegedly filmed on April 27 as the 1D singers were on their way to perform at the Estadio Nacional in Lima, Peru.

The One Direction star is seen puffing on a joint in Peru in a new video.
Louis Tomlinson of One Direction has come under fire for not only sharing a marijuana joint with fellow band member Zayn Malik but also using a shortened version of the N-word in the same leaked video. The new clip has sent shockwaves through One Direction's young fanbase as it presents a very different image to that of the usually squeaky clean singers.
Filmed in the car on the way to a recent concert in Peru, the clip shows Zayn and Louis joking around with members of their crew and passing around a joint which is referred to as "Mary Jane," a euphemism for weed. Feathers have also been ruffled by Louis' flippant attitude towards police that they pass and is heard referring to the law enforcers as the "po po."
Tomlinson is heard seeming to say "It's green only, n**" and blowing spoke whilst sharing the joint with the other passengers. A motorcycle police officer drives past and Louis says: "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."

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.

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.

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.

One Direction’s Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards of Little Mix haven’t enjoyed the most comfortable of month’s in their relationship, what with all those cheating allegations going on and all; however, it appeared that they were trying to get through it after the alleged wantaway Malik was spotted at Little Mix’s show in Liverpool over the weekend, suggesting that the pair are attempting to reconcile.
Malik has come under fire from Little Mix fans after Australian stripper Courtney Webb took her story to The Sun after allegedly bedding the One Direction man, who has been seeing Edwards for over a year. Protesting that she didn’t know he was, Webb at the time said “I’m not a One Direction fan, I don’t follow what they are up to. So when it clicked that he had a girlfriend I got more and more angry. I definitely don’t think it’s the first time he’s done this. I feel sorry for Perrie — she doesn’t know this is going on. It’s wrong and has to stop.”
The Daily Mirror were the ones who spotted Malik at the show at the weekend, safely away from Little Mix fans on the balcony. Bizarrely he gave a wave; we’re pretty sure he was receiving some alternate hand gestures back, not least because Webb, in her interview, went on to say “He just said, ‘Let’s chill in my room’. We sat on his bed and before I could even say anything he started snogging my face off, kissing me passionately. It just snowballed from there. We fooled around then had sex. It was amazing.” Eek.
The best romance ever to spring from the X Factor, One Direction's Zayn Malik and Little Mix's Perrie Edwards, had their foundations rocked last week when photos were revealed by an Australian stripper who claimed to have hooked-up with Malik, reported the Daily Mail. Despite neither Malik nor Edwards commenting on the photos and rumours that have gone along with them, they seem to be trying to make it work, as one happy-snapping 1D super-fan managed to get a photo of them holding hands, while walking in Cheshire.
Seen with a steely look on his face and dressed in a black sweater with an adorable bunny print he matched his girlfriend of a year well, as she donned a leather jacket and dark grey sweater underneath. Perrie has indirectly given away her feelings about the cheating rumours via twitter, as she re-tweeted a fan's post which read "I know you didn't cheat on [Perrie]".
The One Direction boys have pulled in a cool £100 million in less than two years in the job. The group actually finished fourth on The X Factor, though have become easily the most successful act to emerge from Simon Cowell’s reality singing contest.
Their earnings – revealed in a chapter of Tom Bower’s biography on Cowell – make the boy-band one of Britain’s most financially successful groups of all time. This figure actually relates how much the five lads have earned themselves, and is separate from the £200 million they’ve already netted for Cowell and bosses at Sony. Bower writes, “The songs, publishing, discs, DVDs, merchandising and endorsements brought in huge profits, with the five members of the group together estimated to have earned nearly £100million. Naturally, Sony and Syco raked in much more.” Though sell-outs tours have raked in millions, the majority of One Direction’s earnings come from huge endorsements and merchandising deals with Nokia phones, Pokemon games and Hasbro toys. This month, they became the global face of Pepsi in a deal worth £11 million – this sum is not included in Bower’s estimations. Crikes.
Unsurprisingly, the loveable scamps have already begun spending their fortune, with Louis Tomlinson recently shelling out £2.5 million on a luxury five-bed North London house, while Zayn Malik paid £2.2 million for a similar pad. Harry Styles opted for a property in swanky East London.
