LIAM PAYNE SPORTS A NEW BEARD – WHAT DO YOU THINK OF IT? #BEARDSANDBOTTOMS

Daddy Directioner Liam Payne shocked fans this weekend when the beginnings of a new beard were revealed on-stage in the US of A.
The picture below appeared on Twitter and shows the 19-year-old from Wolverhampton sporting a new crop of facial hair.
What do you think?
Love it or loathe it?

If the Payne’s bumfluff isn’t to your taste, then what about the Batman style goatee seen below (courtesy of @m3l4n1390).
We reckon he looks kinda cute.

Bumfluff or Batman though? We wanna know …  :) Comments below…

IF YOU WATCH ANY 1D CONCERT FAN VIDEOS – WATCH THESE – HQ HEAVEN :)


One Direction have just played two packed-to-the-rafters gigs in New York, at the Nikon Theater, and as usual we’ve got a bunch of great videos to share with you.
This first one is quite possibly the best quality fan video of 1D in concert that we’ve EVER SEEN.
The boys were sat down in the middle of the stage singing ‘Little Things’, and the lucky fan in question looks like she was about 3 feet away!
Lucky little thing ;)
So credit to Kayla Ruziak for recording this. Go visit her YouTube channel for more. Remember to change the video settings to 1080p for the best quality if your connection is fast enough.
Isn’t that just the best quality you’ve EVER SEEN?
Let’s watch a few more shall we ;)
Rock Me
Live While We’re Young
Back For You
Kiss You
And finally here’s the best bit of the show, the Twitter questions!
This time they’re asked:
  1. Do your best impression of a New Yorker
  2. If you were a kangaroo, what would you put in your pouch?
  3. Can you guys do the robot?
Excellent performance as always, our dearest One Direction.
So who’s next on the Take Me Home tour? It’s the lucky residents of East Rutherford in New Jersey, where 1D are playing at gig at the IZOD Center this Tuesday.
#TakeMeHomeTour

ONE DIRECTION HAVE THE MOST EXPENSIVE SUMMER TOUR TICKETS AROUND


Of the Top 50 US summer concerts this year, 34 are British bands. We are well and truly amongst the British Invasion 2.0.

The last time we saw the Brit’s being this influential in the US was way back in 1965 – largely considered the first of the so called British Invasions.
One Direction’s hugely successful arena tour which they are in the middle of has actually come in first as the most expensive average tickets.
At $674 for tickets at some locations, it is a really expensive way to see your favourite boys.
But of course there are some cities with significantly cheaper tickets, some coming in at $50 each.


Other expensive tickets include P!nk and Beyonce. But on certain occasions tickets can be as expensive as $1000 for 1D.
The other way you could see the lads if you are in the US, is wait for the tickets for the stadium tour to be released. They have double the capacity of arenas so that will likely mean much, much cheaper tickets.
The atmosphere will also be much crazier because only the elite of the elite could ever play a stadium effectively – the likes of Robbie Williams for example, have enjoyed tours of that scale.
Good luck Directioners, but don’t blow all your cash. There will be plenty more opportunities to see the boys!

TOP VIDEOS OF HARRY AND NIALL WALKING AROUND IN NEW YORK CITY!




You gotta love these guys.

Here’s Harry just casually strolling through the meat packing district, stopping for pictures with fans as well as signing autographs.
Can you imagine any other superstar doing the same thing?
Next, here’s our Hazza surrounded by fans as he attempts to get into a car – where unfortunately one of the girls falls over. Still, nice polite Harry helps the girl up and poses for a photo with her:
Next up, here’s a quick glimpse of Niall as he gets off the coach and heads straight into his hotel:
Finally, we go back to Mr Styles as he’s again filmed by StupidFamousPeople, who ask him to do a shout-out for them. Unsurprisingly, Harry laughs along with Justin and mutters “stupid famous people” under his breath.
1D are currently playing two killer gigs at the New York Nikon At Jones Beach Theater, with their second one tonight.
Harry we love you!

PICS: HARRY STYLES SHOPPING WITH JAMES CORDEN IN NYC

Harry Styles looked part of the family as he headed out on a shopping trip with James Corden, his wife and their son Max.

It seems that Harry and James are even closer than we ever thought, getting invited on family trips out.
They enjoyed a nice day out shopping in New York City together.
But, they weren’t without screaming girls… there for James Corden, obviously.
One Direction are currently embarking on their ‘Take Me Home’ tour USA leg, and have recently enjoyed a day off.
Harry chose to spend this day wisely, shopping with pals.
He didn’t go without his trademark hat though, accompanied by a plain white tee, an open-buttoned shirt and his forever reliable black skinny jeans.
But what really stood out were Hazza’s luminous green Nike running trainers.
The curly-haired heartthrob even showed off his soft side, as he assisted in folding up the push chair and helping it into the Corden’s car.
Awwww, isn’t he a sweetie!
Check out the pics:




BACKSTREET BOYS TELL ONE DIRECTION TO ‘HAVE FUN, IT’S A MARATHON NOT A SPRINT’


One Direction have pretty much taken over the world at the moment.
But back in the 1990′s the boyband crown was well and truly held by the Backstreet Boys, who were and probably are the biggest boy band ever after selling over 130  million records worldwide and had their first 7 albums top the charts in the US.
The band consisting of Brian, AJ, Nick, Howie and Kevin got together in 1993 released massive worldwide hits such as ‘I Want It That Way’ and ‘Everybody (Backstreets Back)’
After 20 years in the business, BSB have been honoured with a star on the Hollywood walk of fame, before they head out on their 12th tour.
The boy band veterans offered advice to One Direction in an interview with UK breakfast show Daybreak.
AJ said: “Enjoy it, that’s the most important thing is to have fun, stay on your own path and surround yourself with good important people, get a good lawyer just in case… you never know!”
While Brian added: “I would say pace yourself, it’s a marathon, it’s not a sprint.”
I’d take that advice boys! BSB definitely know what they’re on about, they’ve been around long enough!
Check out One Direction singing Backstreet Boys below!

Are you a fan of ‘old’ boy bands or do you just prefer One Direction?


*HOT* NIALL SHOWS OFF HIS BUFF BODY IN A VEST

Well well well, has somebody been working out? Looks like Niall’s been hitting the gym HARD!

In these brand new pics of hottie Niall Horan, he somehow seems to have gotten even hotter since we last saw him!
We’ve heard that the 1D boys have been put on a gruelling workout schedule, and seem to be taking it very serious.
It looks like it’s more than paying off for Niall, all those gym sessions and healthy eating, as he flexed his newly toned bod.
After a mammoth run of concerts in the USA, the boys finally got a night off.
Niall decided to spend his day relaxing in NYC, followed by a night on the tiles.
And obviously, wherever 1D are so are a mass of screaming girls and paparazzi, which is why we have these great shots of the blonde-haired heartthrob.
Nialler rocked the ‘chilled’ look on his night out, sporting a low-cut white vest, open-buttoned denim shirt and a pair of skinny jeans teamed with some white Nike Blazers.
VERY hot, indeed!

To help them get the bods that they were after, the boys brought in mixed martial artists Mark Jarvid and Jimmy Wallhead earlier this year, to help them shape up.
A source told The Sun: ‘It’s important the lads are in the best possible shape for these dates,’
‘Bosses don’t want half-measures. The boys spend a lot of time travelling and there can be a tendency to eat junk food and play a lot of video games.
‘Harry has really bulked up his arms, and Liam has a sturdy set of abs. Niall, Louis and Zayn have been working out with separate trainers and they’re getting into it, too.’
Well, thank you Mark and Jimmy, the boys are looking goooooooood!
Especially Niall of course ;)

We are over the moon. Congratulations to Nordoff Robbins on another amazing Silver Clef Awards. What an incredible charity, helping people with music therapy."?

One Direction’s Zayn Malik proves love for Perrie Edwards with new tattoo

Zayn Malik shows off his new inking of girlfriend Perrie Edwards…


He is one fifth of the biggest boy band on the planet, One Direction, but it’s clear that Zayn Malik only has eyes for girlfriend Perrie Edwards after showcasing pictures of a brand new tattoo.

Whilst on the current leg of their North American Take Me Home Tour with the band, Zayn is said to have made a pit stop at the Tattooed Heart Studios in Maryland, asking for an inking of his Little Mix girlfriend.

Zayn Malik is said to have walked in with design in hand while Perrie Edwards watched on as the inking took place. And it seems that the singer loves his beau's dressed-down style drawing Perrie in a casual jacket, peace logo t-shirt and jeans. The inking also shows Perrie's toned abs and long wavy locks, finishing off the look with her signature beanie hat.
ONE DIRECTION DO NAIL POLISH - FOR CHARITY
However Zayn isn’t the only member of One Direction to have undergone a new tattoo transformation as Louis Tomlinson reportedly also asked for a brand new design opting for a spiderweb, due to his love of Spider-Man.

1D3D: HARRY STYLES GRABBING ZAYNS CROTCH AND FLASHING HIS UNDIES

So, the full length trailer of “This Is Us” has been released and we literally cannot wait to see the whole thing.

From the small insights that we have seen in the past, this brand new clip really shows us what to expect.
But one thing that has certainly stood out for us lately, are the crazy things that boys seem to be up to.

Then images of Liam in his underwear surfaced and that was cemented when ANOTHER screen shot of him in his undies was shown in the trailer.
But the most striking thing that we saw was Harry who stripped off to his undies on stage!

That has also been floating around the net and many sources have been using it to push the new movie – which has a new song in the trailer by the way…
Skip to around 2 minutes and 40 seconds and you can hear it for yourselves!
But the newest thing that is hot off the press, is a photo of Harry grabbing Zayn’s…umm…private region?!



We knew the boys were close but didn’t realise they were getting THIS close!
What do you guys make of it?

PICS OF ZAYN AND LOUIS IN THE TATTOO PARLOUR

Zayn and Louis were pictured in a US tattoo parlour this week, topping up their ink, and trying their hardest to catch 1D’s leading tattoo dude Harry Styles.

Will they catch him?
Anyhow, it seems most of us are still getting over the fact that Zayn has had a tattoo of girlfriend PERRIE EDWARDS on his arm. Eek.
Louis:
“Hey Zayn, I’ve got a great idea. Why don’t you get a tat of Perrie on your arm – just to see what she says?”
Zayn:
“Don’t be stupid Louis, everyone knows that’s a definite no-no.”

Tattoo Parlour Guy:
“Guys, we’ve got a great discount on today for tattoos of peoples girlfriends. For just $50 you can get a big one on your arm.”
Zayn:
“Ey up that’s like well good! Let’s go for it!”

Louis meanwhile treated himself to a cute little rope on his wrist. Is this a tribute to that addictive ‘Cut The Rope’ game?
Maybe not.

We’re still waiting for little old Niall Horan to get his first tattoo, with the Irish dude being the only member of One Direction yet to get inked up.

Sometimes it’s good to see how far our lads have come, but here’s a video from 1D’s 2012 tour of the US where they paid tribute to the legendary Michael Jackson, singing ‘Man In The Mirror’ for a Twitter question.
The boys did their very best, but Zayn completely ruled at the end!
Watch below…
It’s pretty cool to look at all the styling and their haircuts – my how they’ve changed!
After resting yesterday, the lads are ready hit New York for a double bill tonight and tomorrow, playing gigs in Wantagh at the New York Nixon at Jones Beach Theater.
