Justin Bieber has received messages of support from the likes of One Direction and Professor Green after his altercation with the paparazzi yesterday (8th March).
The ‘As Long As You Love Me’ singer was involved in an exchange of words outside his hotel before the incident took place, and Louis Tomlinson believes the press shouldn’t be so hard on the teen.
“Although I don’t know him personally, I do wish the press would take it easy on @justinbieber,” he wrote on his Twitter account. “really do empathise with him, I don’t see anything out of character in comparison to any other teenagers I know.”
Professor Green also logged onto his social networking account to offer his support to “team Bieber”.
“I’m team bieber on this one. You get the odd pap who’s alright – the rest are weirdos,” he wrote. “imagine having to deal with a******’s following you everywhere and constantly trying to bate you into a response. . .”
Ne-Yo also told Capital FM this week that being under the media spotlight can get overwhelming and he offered to help the singer overcome an issues in his personal life.
Meanwhile, despite collapsing on stage this week and facing a barrage of abuse for arriving two hours late to one show – Justin completed his O2 Arena residency last night.
The gig was watched by such stars as Jessie J , who was full of praise for the ‘Boyfriend’ singer.
Niall Horan’s bouncy bottom aside, One Direction certainly seem to have a bit of an obsession with tattoos at the moment and if these pics are to be believed, it looks like band member Harry Styles has added to the approximate 36321.45 inkings he’s already got with a huge butterfly across his stomach.
The Twitter spies have been out in force and after a bit of detective work, it seems like Harry might just have got himself a massive new tattoo that he’s been keeping to himself. Or at least to himself and anyone who has had the luck to see him topless recently.
Although the pic in question has no head on it, there are some tell tale extra nipples and a hint of a ship and a heart tattoo on the left arm that have got a lot of people wondering if this in fact Hazlan’s new tatt. Posted on the internet by tattoo artist Liam Sparkes, we wouldn’t be surprised if it is Harry – especially as he’s been spotted out in t-shirts designed by the tattooist before too.
Either way, it’s absolutely MASSIVE. And yes, that’s what she said. If it is Harry, he must have had it done since the Christmas hols as there was definitely no sign of a dirty great butterfly when he was off romping about with all four nipples out in the jaccuzzis of the Caribbean.
Getting a dirty great butterfly tattooed across your body is apparently symbolic of entering a new phase in your life. While you may want to read into this as having some deep and meaningful girl related message, we’d rather just assume it has something to do with Harry’s adoration for The Very Hungry Caterpillar as a child.
That books is the best.
Conor Maynard made a bit of a boo boo this evening, when he shared his Snapchat username with all of his 1,200,000 Twitter followers.
Snapchat is a photo messaging application and users can take photos, record videos, add text and drawings, and send them to a controlled list of recipients. It is usually seen as a private service, which users tend to avail of to share their media with a group of close friends and family but Conor seemed to misunderstand that when he signed up.
He tweeted his followers tonight saying:
“So are you meant to share your snapchat publicly it is it a private thing? I don’t get it…”
“Meh… snapchat: conorpmaynard”
However, within seconds thousands of fans were joining up and seeking out the young singer and his phone was going crazy with notifications from the app.
He seemed to panic as the craziness began and wrote:
“OH MY GOD WHAT HAVE I DONEEEEEEE”
“I THOUGHT IT WAS LIKE INSTAGRAM WHAT IS THIS MADNESSSSSSSSS”
Maynard then teased:
“Time to burn my phone and start a new life. Even the little snapchat ghost hates me right now. Hahaaa”
Louis Tomlinson thought the whole thing was pretty hilarious and tweeted his old pal saying:
“@ConorMaynard haha very clever Conor . I see what you’re doing there”
However, his message only made the craziness worse and Conor responded:
“@Louis_Tomlinson I am now full of deep regret and shame. My motherwould be so disappointed. Hahaa”
“@Louis_Tomlinson hahaa also your tweet has only directed more people to the madness… how could you.. I TRUSTED YOU!! hahaa”
Lou Lou replied:
“@ConorMaynard haha mate I’m sure you’re buzzing !!”
Conor may need to be careful as because of the ability for images to disappear within one second, many experts have expressed fears that Snapchat will become a popular vehicle for sexting. When searching “Snapchat” on Twitter, MSNBC found multiple tweets regarding the sexually-oriented use of Snapchat.
The One Direction lads brought a bit of fun to the stage last night when they performed in Belfast’s Odyssey Arena, when they performed the sassy Kelis song ‘Milkshake.’
During the Twitter questions section, which has previously seen them performing the Fresh Prince rap and doing the Inbetweeners dance, the lads took suggestions from their followers on possible songs they could showcase and yesterday this sexy rap track won the vote.
The song choice seemed to go down well with fans and one tweeted afterwards:
“They sang my milkshakes oh my god I cant stop laughing”
Another Directioner added:
“the highlight of the approximate 17 minutes i’ve been awake this morning has without a doubt been one direction singing kelis’ “milkshake”
A third posted:
“One direction singing ‘ my milkshake brings all the boys to the yard’ tonight might have been the best thing I have ever witnessed!”
You can catch the hilarious action in the clip below.
Meanwhile, we thought you might want to take a moment to check out this gorgeous picture of Liam Payne and spend a moment or two admiring his lovely hair.
Last September the 1D hunk shaved his head – we’re sure you remember – and for months he looked a little bit dodgy in the barnet department. Thankfully his locks are sprouting quickly and yesterday, before taking to the stage in Northern Ireland, he was pictured outside his plush hotel rocking a very noticeable – if still quite small – quiff.
Daddy Directioner might not have Harry’s lovely locks, but we still like them longer. No more shaving please Liam!
Harry Styles is back to doing what he does best, as reports emerge that the lothario’s attention was captured by a ‘Megan Fox lookalike’ during a One Direction gig.
Harry and his bandmates are busy travelling the globe with their epic Take Me Home world tour but work didn’t stop Hazza from being distracted by a pretty lady in the audience this week.
According to concert-goers, the star was mesmerised by a pretty fan at the group’s Belfast gig on Thursday night. Harry was reportedly so enamoured by the “Megan Fox lookalike” that he “immediately told his security men to get her number for him,” according to the Daily Star.
Twitter users seem to back up the story with fan Nicole Gilvar writing: “Yes harry did ask for a girls number behind us.. stappppp being jealous.” Amy Hartin added: “Omg I literally couldn’t believe it!!! He was watching her all night!!”
Away from the ladies, and Harry’s bromance with Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw has also been getting attention this week, despite their nine-year age gap the BFF’s certainly seem to have a lot of fun as they are always spotted on the London social scene together.
Comedian Russell Howard admitted he found it odd, as why an older man would want to be pals with a young teen. He told The Sun, “Like Nick is my age and Harry is about 18 and they play frisbee together – it’s really weird. “How have they become best buddies? I’d rather hang out with my mates and do gigs”.
Here at EntertainmentWise, we asked body language expert, Judi James, whether older stars find it hard to be friends, in terms of maturity and conversation, with younger celebs. James replied, “I think there’s generally going to be a lot in common, because celebritieshave the ego thing.”
Adding, “Whatever the age-gap is, they’ll know the same people, the same bands. And I think possibly for some of them, if they mix with their same age group they might not be as clued up with that type of conversation.”
The Wanted’s Siva Kaneswaran has insisted that things are back to being ‘civil’ between them and One Direction, after some heated words between the two boy bands.
Siva reveals that TW ran into One Direction whilst recording in the US recently and despite previous twitter battles and public insults the boybander insists things are fine:
“We have bumped into them over there. Funnily enough they were in the studio next to us rehearsing,” Siva tells OK!
“It was a long time ago now and that was the last time we saw them. But it was civil!” he added.
Despite the friendly terms Siva says fans shouldn’t expect a collaboration between the two Brit bands anytime soon! “They’ve got a different sound and a different image and we’re on a different path to them. But it’s one of those things, I mean look at Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block!”
Giving us all a bit of hope, the singer does say that things could change as the bands mature: “You never know, as you get older. But right now I don’t think that’s going to be possible,” he added.
Whilst TW may have patched things up with One Direction, a string of celebs have lined up to slam the boyband recently with Lost star Matthew Fox joining the likes of Boy George and Jake Bugg in crticising Harry Styles and co.
It feels like two minutes since One Direction put out their second studio album Take Me Home, but it seems that the boys are already hard at work on their third effort.
Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles and Zayn Malik worked with the boys from McFly on their recent collection, and it seems our favourite 00s quartet have been summoned in to create more tunes for them.
Niall tweeted: “Me, @dannymcFly and @tommcfly made a revelation today!”
Tom Fletcher also wrote: “Busy times. Spent the morning reading our book about dinosaur poop to a room of adults. Now off to Ireland to make some music with 1D.”
Time to get excited?
One Direction are currently on an almighty world tour, which will last for most of 2013, spanning over 100 shows.
You certainly can’t accuse them of putting their feet up…
Hurts star Adam Anderson has spoken out in support for One Direction after an increasing amount of criticism from fellow musicians in recent weeks.
The Manchester duo found themselves sat on the table next to One Direction at this year’s Brit Awards and Anderson feels the boyband ‘should be left alone’ after 18-year-old singer Jake Bugg said One Direction ‘must know they’re terrible’.
Speaking exclusively to Gigwise, Anderson says: “I think they seem like decent lads and they’re having fun. If you were 19 and in their position then you would have fun.
“I think they should be left alone really. It’s good for the equilibrium of pop to have boybands.”
Hurts know how it feels to have huge success outside of the UK after their debut album, Happiness saw them inside the top ten charts across Europe. Anderson believes it can only be a positive thing for the county to have artists that find success overseas.
He adds: “At the end of the day they [One Direction] are a big export for music in this country. If One Direction and Adele raise the profile for British acts then fair enough.”
Speaking of the criticism that this year’s Brit Awards receiving for being slightly on the boring side, Anderson feels that was just down to timing of different acts coming through.
He says: “I think there was an absence of a certain type of band which was the problem, but that’s just timing.
“It is what it is. It was still a good laugh and a good party afterwards. You make your own fun sometimes.”
Hurts’ second studio album, Exile will be released next week on 11 March 2013.
Noel Gallagher surprisingly has a clear conscious as, rather than feel guilty for snubbing One Direction at the 2013 BRIT Awards last month, the rocker says it was “the highlight” of his night.
While the High Flying Birds frontman once feuded with Blur rocker Damon Albarn, the pair found they had something in common when they both refused to greet One Direction at the BRITS in February after the young lads attempted to greet the rock heroes.
“We were both invited by War Child (this year) so we were sat on the same table,” Noel told Time Out Dubai of his encounter with Damon at the awards ceremony.
“And it turns out, after all these years, that we’re both actually really genial fellas. We got absolutely (drunk) and told One Direction to (go away) in unison, that was the highlight of the night.”
When quizzed on how 1D took the snub, Noel replied: “I don’t know, you better ask One Direction.”
It seems One Direction may have helped bridge the gap between the former sparring rockers as Noel recently revealed that he may perform with Damon at next year’s BRITS.
“I shared a table with Damon. I could see us collaborating in the future, why not? Maybe at next year’s Brits,” Noel told The Mirror.
With terrifying threats of shoes aimed at testicles and ex-girlfriends wielding heavy acoustic guitars, it’s pretty understandable that Harry Styles might want a little bit of extra security whilst he’s touring with One Direction. We’d be pretty scared too.
But it was a bit of a surprise a few days ago when it was reported that Hazlan was demanding ‘military style protection’ around him whilst they travelled the globe, to protect him from ‘gun maniacs’ and ‘Taylor Swift followers’. Alright Sassy Sasspot, calm yourself down.
A few day ago, an insider claimed to reveal to The Daily Star that “Harry [was] taking the situation very seriously.” They explained “He’s mentioned high security cars like the ones used by military top brass, plus a convoy. He also feels there are Taylor Swift followers out there who may hold a grudge against him.” But, hold yo’ horses. It’s been confirmed today that it was all a load of nonsense, so there’s a huge surprise
It’s all a load of old tosh, and Harry’s quite happy sticking to the protection of Daddy Directioner and the Sassquatch. According to Now magazine, a 1D spokesperson said the story is “complete rubbish”. So that puts an end to that one then, and we can all go back to chucking shoes at Curly Chops.
