One Direction

One Direction swiftly became one of the biggest boy bands of all time following their stint on The X Factor. Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik lives were transformed overnight.

Fans followed them everywhere they went, their songs took over the charts and their names were known all across the globe.

They were living the dream, but former member Liam Payne has now revealed it wasn’t all it fun and games.

In an interview with Men’s Health, the Strip That Down singer said he had to drink to cope with the sheer level of fame they were experiencing.

He explained that there were many moments when he couldn’t quite wrap his head around what was happening to him.

“When you’re doing hundreds and hundreds of [concerts] and it’s the same 22 songs at the same time every single day, even if you’re not happy, you’ve got to go out there,” he shared.

“It’s almost like putting the Disney costume on before you step up on stage and underneath the Disney costume I was pissed quite a lot of the time because there was no other way to get your head around what was going on. I mean it was fun. We had an absolute blast but there were certain parts of it where it just got a little bit toxic.”

“It’s difficult when you have the level of fame that we had in the band. There have been a lot of people in trouble with mental health that aren’t really getting the help that they need and I think that’s a bit of a problem in our industry.”

The singer admitted he never felt in control during his time in One Direction and that is something he continues to fight with.

“I still struggle with it now. I really struggle to say no because I don’t like to let people down. It’s in my nature,” the For You singer concluded.

Style is literally part of Harry's namesake, so it's no surprise the chap can seemingly pull off ANY item of clothing. Apparently pigs are accepted as his co-models now, alert the farmers.

The former One Direction band member has become immersed in the fashion world since going solo, and has now starred in three luxurious Gucci tailoring campaigns.

The latest campaign somehow proves that Harry Styles can make any prop fashion, even farm animals. A very lucky pig joined Harry on the photo-shoot in order to show off it's posing, we assume.

Styles recently made a splash at the Met Gala as the event co-chair, alongside Serena Williams and Anna Wintour. He showed up decked out in Gucci, with a nipple-freeing sheer black ruffle shirt and patent oxford heels.

Oh, he also accessorised with a pearl earring, because he's literally art. The Sweet Creature singer makes the latest Gucci images look like a modern-day Renaissance painting.

We WISH we were that pig. It's like Noah's Ark, but make it fashion.

In the previous two campaigns, Harry reinvented the word 'broody'; posing in an English fish and chip shop and Italian garden landscape. In the 2019 campaign, the settings play on the fashion house's eclectic aesthetic.

It's a good thing he's an actor as well as a musician. He looks like he's been left on hold in one of those images, who would put Harry Styles on hold? The neck? Someone call 911.

Gucci’s Pre-Fall 2019 men’s tailoring collection offers a whole new lens on formalwear. Creative director Alessandro Michele’s vision challenges how men wear the conventional suit, adding colour pops and modernity to the clothing.

Harry seems excellent at cradling small animals. We've never been jealous of a lamb before, but here we are.

This time, it's a pig and some office supplies that join him in front of the camera. His own style evolution is reflected in the imagery, with anticipation for his second solo album building and a new chapter of his life being written.

"It's time to try something new and hopefully shock and inspire in a different way," Lambert said. "I know the fans love his outfits, so hopefully they will love what’s to come."

The word that comes to mind is definitely: Extra.

One thing's for sure; Liam Payne doesn't waste any time when it comes to his romantic life.

He may have only split with Naomi Campbell this month after some outrageous Instagram flirting, but the former One Direction star has already been dining with another supermodel.

The 25-year-old singer was spotted heading in to a Berlin restaurant to meet Victoria's Secret Angel Stella Maxwell.  He's really punching above his weight there…

They apparently arrived at the Grill Royal separately but then sat beside each other at a table, and were later joined by more of their entourage.

An insider told The Sun: “They’re both ­similar ages and bonded over their experiences in showbiz.

“They were seen deep in thought at the dinner and were clearly ­having a good time. Who knows where this could lead?”

Stella Maxwell was dating Twilight actress Kristen Stewart until last December, and the 28-year-old bisexual actress is thought to be single currently.

The model and Payne both attended Coachella on the same weekend, so perhaps that's how they met?

The Strip That Down singer's brief romance with renowned veteran supermodel Naomi Campbell cooled down before the festival; it's claimed she "got bored of him". Ouch.

Liam commented; "Perfection in a person…don't give me those eyes," on Naomi's post, and it got even spicier from there. It was a lot.

We decided to investigate Harry Styles' net worth, instead of focusing on our own empty bank balance. It's somewhat cathartic.

The former star of One Direction has made a crazy amount of cash, and we decided to do some digging. For research purposes…

His infamous hair is earned him numerous endorsements, and the band itself made most of their earnings from their Pepsi days and touring.

While they may be on a very extended 'break', Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson became millionares after chugging out album after album in a short space of time.

First of all, 1D sales are beyond insane. According to RIAA, One Direction has sold $13.5 million in digital singles, which is basically in downloaded singles alone.

Their album sales are also on the high end of the spectrum; 2013’s Midnight Memories was that year’s best-selling album, selling a whopping 4 million copies worldwide.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by 1D (@one.direction.ph) on

Let's not forget the merch, shall we? Piles of cash came in from their 2014 Where We Are Tour in particular. It became the highest-grossing tour of the year with $290.2 million.

Their 2013 Take Me Home tour also made $114 million, and 2015’s On the Road Again Tour made $208 million. So they've got plenty to brag about.

Bear in mind, the money had to be divided in five as well as siphoned off to their management and those who worked on set and on tour with them. STILL, it's cold hard cash.

LOOK HOW CUTE THEY WERE:

Their merch strategy was out of this world; they could have sold a dirty old sock and fans would pay millions for it. You can still find merch of the bands actually..might get some more?

Their This Is Us movie earned a casual $8.9 million on its opening day alone, so there's that too. We confess, we went to see it, Twice.

One Direction also made sure to work with brands to get endorsements, such as Toyota and Pepsi.

Apart from all that coin he made in the infamous boy band, Harry also had his self-titled debut album and movie roles as part of his earnings.

His self-titled musical offering sold well, with one million copies being bought to be exact, and his solo tour making $62 million

His role in Dunkirk presumably paid well, and his modelling for GUCCI tailoring also gave him a handsome salary.

His L.A. home was only recently put on the market for $7.495 million, so he's got some money tied up in real estate property, and a $6.8 million NYC apartment, as well as his $3 million London home.

Which means…according to Celebrity Net Worth, our boy Harry has a total of $75 million to his name.

We just shed a single tear for the state of our financial independence…

Tributes have been pouring in for Louis Tomlinson’s 18-year-old sister Felicite who has tragically passed away.

The teenager was found dead at her home in London on Wednesday afternoon.

It is understood that the 18-year-old suffered a cardiac arrest at her flat in Earl's Court, west London.

The former One Direction singer is said to be heartbroken by the untimely loss of his little sister.

According to The Sun, the Back For You singer has been left "devastated and distraught" by the death of his sister.

Felicite was described as "lovable, caring, bright and beautiful".

Louis lost his mum Johannah to leukaemia in December 2016. She was only 43-years-old.

His fans have been paying tribute to Louis and his family who have experienced too much tragedy in the past few years.

One wrote: “Two years after the death of his mother, Louis Tomlinson’s 18 year old sister Felicite has died of an unexplained heart attack. This is horrendous. How much tragedy can one family take?”

Another said: “my heart is BROKEN for félicité and the Tomlinson family. She was such a beautiful, kind and courageous girl.”

“Félicité Tomlinson was a beautiful soul who was nothing but kind to others around her. We are absolutely devastated and heartbroken for the family and everyone who is suffering from her loss,” one wrote.

Louis has pulled out of tonight’s Comic Relief show due to the untimely passing of his sister.

Our thoughts are with Louis and his family during this harrowing time.

Have we all seen THAT insane Harry Styles face tattoo? The one that made everyone gasp out loud and question her sanity and life choices?

Singer Kelsy Karter got the attention she was looking for, but not from Harry himself though. Twitter users were quick to point out that the ink actually resembled Frankie Cocozza far more, but still.

As many of us have guessed, it has now been revealed that the tattoo was all a hoax in order for Kelsy to promote her new single, Harry. Yes, she's that dedicated to promotion.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Kelsy Karter (@kelsykarter) on

She's admitted the hoax was all for the sake of Harry Styles noticing her new song about him, and she has dropped a video explaining the whole fraud. 

She said she wanted to get the inking to ‘cut through the noise’ and get her music noticed by top music execs, and the general public. Oh, and it's dropped on Harry's 25th birthday. 

The New Zealand-born singer elaborated, saying she dedicated the song to the Kiwi artist after going through a rough patch last April;

"My dog Diva died. My relationship ended. And the last thing I wanted to do was write another sad song about it."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Kelsy Karter (@kelsykarter) on

Kelsy directed and produced the video for the One Direction hero for only $300, but didn't have the cash to promote the song;

"But how were we going to cut through the noise to get noticed? What would the rock legends that inspired me have done in 2019?" Celebrity tattooist Romeo Lacoste was enlisted for the sake of the tattoo, which was based on Harry's Rolling Stones cover.

The 25-year-old said Romeo traced the image and applied it to her face, and then used a special FX makeup artist.

She added; "‘BTW we know it looked ridiculous. That was the point.I had your attention." We were thinking that Romeo's talented skills needed to be brushed up…

Of course, the absurd inking went totally viral. Websites and news sites globally covered the tatt, and everyone was talking about it. TMZ wanted to chat to her, and she even considered reapplying the tattoo.

Because it's Harry's special birthday, Kelsy has made the choice to confess her fib.

"This has always been about rock ‘n’ roll. Harry is an anthem for the fans. The tattoo is gone. All that’s left is the music. Which is what my rockstar team and I had planned all along."

We have to respect her commitment, and the plan is pretty ingenious. The song is also a complete TUNE. We'd love to hear a comment from Harry on the matter though…

Harry Styles has an abundant of fans all around the world, each more dedicated than the next. Some send him gifts, some throw their underwear in his face at concerts, and some…get him tattooed on their face?

We're pretty sure that this girl is officially 'Harry's #1 Fan' by default after pulling this stunt. Kelsy Karter has made no secret of her love for the 24-year-old former One Direction singer.

The lad has been blazing a trail since the release of his massively popular debut album, and now Kelsy has decided it's time to show her (permanent) appreciation for Harry. We can only hope this is a hoax.

Kelsy got inked by Los-Angeles based tattoo artist Romeo Lacoste, who's quite the big deal in the celebrity body art scene. She shared the bizarre result on her social media accounts, tweeting the caption;

"Mama, look what I made me do." My mother would excommunicate me from the family if I pulled anything like this, let alone called her out in the caption…

Needless to say, fans had some pretty dramatic reactions. Mainly because the tattoo literally looks NOTHING like Harry Styles, no offence Mr Lacoste, but this isn't your best work in terms of facial twinning.

Hilariously, Frankie Cocozza realised how like the inking his own face looked, as opposed to the solo singer. He tweeted a reply to Kelsy, writing: "I'd love to send you a signed photo thanking you for the support. Get in touch mate x" GAS.

Kelsy's face appears slightly swollen and red, with Romeo posting a photo of her on his Instagram story saying; "I can’t believe Kelsy Karter got Harry Styles tattooed on her face." We can't either.

She recently tweeted: "It’s 2019 and Harry Styles is still the best looking human." Safe to say she'd be over the moon if he noticed her stunt. but the frontman has yet to comment.

Some fans are arguing that the tattoo is fake, but most of the comments are just the general public questioning her sanity. Which is semi-fair, to be honest. 

On 18 January she tweeted: "Finally know what I’m getting Harry for his birthday…" 

Well, this is one way to get his attention, we hope? Stay tuned to see if the singer ever comments on the matter, or if Kelsy reveals the inauthenticity of the inking. Pray it's fake, just pray.

2019 has already been a whirlwind. January is officially 51 weeks long, and the only thing keeping us entertained during this dark time are random AF celebrity couplings.

From the weirdness that was (possibly) Kate Beckinsale and Pete Davidson, now there rises a newer, just as odd pairing; Naomi Campbell and none other than LIAM PAYNE.

Christmas can be one of the greatest times of the year, but it is important for us to remember that it isn’t easy for everyone.

There are times when we fail to realise that some people may struggle with the constant cheer and merriment.

It can be one of the loneliest times of year, especially for people who have recently suffered a heartbreak.

Popstar Cheryl is believed to be dreading the holiday season this year following her split from One Direction beau Liam Payne.

The Fight For This Love songstress will be celebrating the holidays with her son Bear, whom she shares with the Familiar singer, and her mum.

According to Heat magazine, Cheryl is feeling rather nervous about her first Christmas as a single mum.

“Cheryl is trying to put on a brave face, but she’s really dreading being lonely this year. She’s really struggling at the moment, being on her own,” a source claimed.

The Love Made Me Do It singer prefers to be in a relationship and is really feeling that loneliness as Christmas approaches.

There’s no doubt Liam will be there on Christmas morning as the parents vowed to take their parenting responsibilities extremely seriously, no matter what.

The former X Factor judge and Liam Payne went their separate ways in July 2018, but they have both agreed that their son’s happiness will always be their number one priority, regardless of their relationship status.

We’re sure Bear will help wash his mum’s worries away this Christmas.
