Niall Horan: “Justin Bieber’s new single That Power with Will.i.am is a monster track”
One Direction star Niall Horan has given Justin Bieber’s new single with Will.i.am a glowing review.
The blond singer, 19, was listening to super-catchy song That Power last night and couldn’t resist sharing his thoughts with his 10,540,771 followers on Twitter.
‘@iamwill @justinbieber tuuuune dudes! Monster track ! #thatpower,’ he wrote.
It’s not the first time Niall – who’s busy touring the UK with 1D pals Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne – has voiced his love of the 19-year-old Canadian superstar’s music on the social networking site.
‘@justinbieber congrats bro! great album dude,’ Niall Tweeted in back in June.
One Direction’s Zayn Malik gets yet another tattoo!
If there’s one thing we know about the One Direction boys, it’s that they just love tattoos. Especially that Zayn Malik!
And now the 20-year-old’s gone and got another one. To add to his impressive collection of body art, that includes a yin-yang symbol on his left wrist, a microphone on his right forearm, and his Zap tattoo, which is also on his right forearm, Zayn’s just been inked up with a skull in a top hat, with horns, smoking a cigar.
Zayn popped down to Bob Done’s studio, Magnum Opus, in Brighton to have the new tattoo done on his left shoulder.
We’re not sure Zayn’s mum will be happy about her son’s new addition.
In January Zayn said that while 1D’s boss Simon Cowell hasn’t made his feelings known about the group’s body art, their mums think they’ve had too much ink done.
“Simon hasn’t said anything but our mums have been like ‘maybe you’re getting a bit too much,” he admitted.
Zayn’s bandmate Louis Tomlinson also got a new tattoo this week. Yesterday he tweeted a picture of his newly-inked ankles.
The wordy tattoo says, ‘The Rogue’.
This adds to his collection of, erm, rather random tats, which includes a coffee cup, a compass and the word ‘oops’.
These guys just can’t get enough, eh?
One Direction have premiered an alternate music video for their single Kiss You which features lots of behind the scenes antics from their shoot day.
Harry, Niall, Liam, Zayn and Louis seemed to have a blast on set of the video for their third single from their Take Me Home LP, evident in this brand new treat for all the Directioners out there.
Over the weekend 1D took home Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards for Favourite Music Group and for Favourite Song (What Makes You Beautiful) and the group recently hit the top spot in the UK and around the world with their Comic Relief single One Way Or Another (Teenage Kicks).
Niall Horan’s brother invites Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson & Zayn Malik to wedding!
The One Direction lads are currently enjoying a week off from touring and performing and most of the boys have headed home to see their friends and family during the break.
However, they could be reunited before their concert in Liverpool this Sunday as Niall Horan’s brother has invited all four of his sibling’s bandmates to his wedding in Mullingar.
Niall headed back to Ireland at the weekend and was hanging outwith some pals in Dublin yesterday, before travelling to Mullingar for the festivities. The 1D hunk will act as best man at the upcoming wedding and insiders say he’ll even sing a few songs for the guests.
Speaking to The Sun, Greg Horan revealed that he is elated that his younger brother will be able to share in his special day and explained:
“I’m thrilled Niall has a couple of days off and will be able to come home for it – it couldn’t happen without him.”
He also confirmed that he has invited Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik to share in his special day and added:
“I have asked the other lads in the band over too – we will have to wait and see if they are coming because they will just have a few days off.”
“It would be a bit of a laugh to get karaoke going in the evening. My parents are looking forward to it, and I know Niall is too.”
Having a famous sibling does have it’s downsides too though and it’s been reported that the Horan’s have been forced to hire extra security to keep Niall’s fans from gate crashing the wedding celebrations.
No doubts hundreds of local girls will be desperate to hear the blonde hunk giving his best man speech to assembled guests and it sounds like he’s been putting a lot of effort and thought into the role he will play on his brother’s big day.
“Niall’s excited for his best man duties,” an insider told the newspaper. “He’s been writing a speech and made sure he had time off from touring for the big day.
“After the ceremony Niall’s thinking about getting up on stage with his guitar and singing at the reception.”
Greg will marry fiancee Denise Kelly tomorrow at 1pm and it has been revealed that the wedding will be a family affair, with only 150 invited guests. Nialler’s mum can’t wait to have him home and told The Irish Independent:
“It’s great to have Niall back for a few days without having to work. The last time I saw him it was at the O2 and it was too short.”
Niall will be attending Greg’s wedding rehearsal this afternoon.
The O2 is supporting One Direction’s five-night run at the venue next month with a pop-up merchandise store.
Fans will be able to visit the store from Thursday (28 March) ahead of the band’s first gig on 1 April. The store will sell exclusive merchandise including onesies, hoodies, iPhone cases, jackets, nails, caps and dog tags. It is open until 28 April.
The opening day will include a competition with the first 100 fans to arrive dressed in onesies entered into a draw for tickets.
Two visitors, chosen via O2 Priority Moments, will get to choose ten free items from the store 30 minutes before it opens, and another 50 will be given early access.
In the lead up to the store opening life-size cut outs of the band will appear in various parts of The O2 and on social media platforms.
One Direction will be appearing at The O2 on 1,2,4,5 and 6 April.
5ive don’t think One Direction would be successful in America without Twitter
Earlier today we spent a fun half an hour hanging out with 5ive. It’s a tough job… etc.
They boys answered your questions, but also asked one of their own. And it was quite an interesting question.
Talking about social media – which wasn’t a big deal the first time 5ive were about – the boys suggested that One Direction wouldn’t be as famous without it,
“We didn’t have social media back in the day, we didn’t have Twitter, Facebook, web chatsnothing – we just turned up to places. Where as now you can be in room straight away with just one tweet,” said Scott.
Sean then asked, “Would One Direction be as big in America without Twitter that’s the question?
“No. They. Wouldn’t,” Scott answered.
“I’m not sure either,” added Sean. “We had to be there didn’t we? If we weren’t there we weren’t “there’”.
The boys do make an interesting point, but their comments are bound to get a few One Direction fans a little angry.
In fact we wouldn’t be surprised if 5ive were about to find out just what social networking can really do.
Scroll to the 29:00 minute mark to see 5ive talking about 1D.
He might be one fifth of the world’s biggest boyband, but when it comes to his tattoos – Louis Tomlinson’s priorities lie elsewhere.
The One Direction singer has paid tribute to his old band The Rogues with his latest inkings.
Louis’ girlfriend Eleanor Calder posted a picture of the new designs on Twitter, showing the word ‘The’ on one of Louis’ shins and ‘Rogue’ on the other.
In the frame, Louis is seen with rolled up trousers to show off the latest additions to his collection.
Eleanor also posted another shot of Louis on her Twitter, which appeared to show another new design on his chest as the singer strummed away at his guitar.
It is believed Louis had the new designs inked on his legs over the weekend, when he bumped into former The Voice contestant Bo Bruce at the tattoo parlour.
The new tattoos come less than a month after Louis’ latest design – a teacup on his right arm, referencing 1D’s hit song Little Things.
Louis and his One Direction bandmates are no strangers to the tattoo parlour, and have something of a competition to see who can collect the most random array of inkings.
In a recent interview with We Love Pop magazine, Zayn Malik said of his collection: ‘I want to fill my entire right arm up to my elbow. I’ve got loads of ideas.
‘I draw as well – I think I’m probably more addicted to coming up with ideas of what I can get tattooed rather than the actual tattoo!’
But One Direction’s love of tattoos landed them in hot water earlier this month, when they were forced to delete social media requests for fans to submit photos and footage of their tattoos after accusations they were encouraging their young fans to have body art.
On Saturday night, statues on their Facebook and Twitter pages asked for devotees with One Direction tattoos to share photos of them online.
As many of the boy band’s fans are under 18 – the legal age in the UK to have a tattoo – there were fears many would want to go under the needle in a bid to be noticed by their idols.
However, the controversial tweet and Facebook status were later removed.
The band’s spokesperson Simon Jones said at the time: ‘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.’
Niall Horan will be his brother’s best man at his wedding.
The One Direction star is set to return to his home town of Mullingar in Ireland for his elder sibling Greg’s impending nuptials to fiancée Denise, which are set to take place in the next few days, and his bandmates have also been invited.
A source told The Sun newspaper: “Niall’s excited for his best man duties. He’s been writing a speech and made sure he had time off from touring for the big day.
“After the ceremony Niall’s thinking about getting up on stage with his guitar and singing at the reception.”
Niall’s brother is thought to have hired extra security for the wedding in anticipation of excited fans hoping to catch a glimpse of the 19-year-old singer.
Meanwhile, the ‘Kiss You’ hitmaker sent fans into a frenzy on Twitter yesterday (24.03.13) as a shirtless picture of the star showing off his recently toned physique circulated amongst fans.
One tweeter said: “Niall Horan shirtless will be the death of me.
One Direction’s Niall Horan explains his Twitter absence
Niall Horan is normally the most prolific tweeter from One Direction, so we had wondered why he had been so quiet on the micro blogging site this week, thankfully all has now been revealed.
The 1D hunk apologised to his fans last night and revealed that he has been struggling to get connectivity on his mobile this week, as he performed in Birmingham, Nottingham and Sheffield as part of the band’s Take Me Home tour. They are three major cities with pretty good coverage, so we’re presuming it was a problem with his phone and not the network signal.
“I finally have signal ! I’ve had no phone signal all week! So annoying! How is everyone?”
Making the most of his time online, the ‘Little Things’ hitmaker also thanked his fans for voting for them recently and helping them pick up two Kids Choice Awards in LA at the weekend. He wrote:
“Wow! I can’t believe it! Sorry I’m late!
Thank you soo much for the KCA’S ! Wow!
So overwhelmed my it!
Thank you , thank you , thank you”
The One Direction boys will be enjoying a week off, starting last night and as we revealed Niall will be heading home to Ireland for his short holiday.
The Mullingar born singer will be attending his brother’s wedding, where he will take on the role of Best Man.
