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.

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.

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…

So, while there may be no such thing as a free lunch, free coffee is a totally different story.

A brand new initiative is offering road users the chance to redeem a free hot drink – and all you have to do is leave your phone face down while you drive.

Toyota Ireland has today launched a genius new app called, “Face It Down”.

Available for iPhone and Android, the app is designed to save lives on Irish roads by allowing users to collect points for a complimentary hot drink at Topaz Re Store outlets nationwide.

In partnership with the RSA and Topaz, Toyota Ireland has developed the app in an effort to change driver behaviour and improve road safety for everyone.

The user must simply launch the app before starting their car, leave it face down, and earn points for every kilometre driven without picking up the phone.

Should the user pick up the phone while the vehicle is still moving, all points accumulated will be lost.

Once a driver has gathered 350 points, they will be able to trade them in for a hot drink of their choice at any participating Topaz Re Store.

Oh, and you'll get a bonus 250 points for completing your first successful journey.

Not convinced? We'll let Bressie take it from here. 

Moyagh Murdock, Chief Executive, Road Safety Authority highlighted the danger of using a mobile phone while driving, “Distracted driving could be a factor in as many 20-30% of all collisions in this country. However, the biggest distraction for drivers is the mobile.

“Despite the fact that using them when driving is killing people on Irish roads, rational, intelligent people continue to text, make phone calls, take selfies or update their social pages while driving. When you use your mobile behind the wheel, taking your mind and eyes off the road for just a split second can destroy everything forever. ”

“That’s why the RSA is fully supportive of the Face It Down campaign and commends Toyota for endeavouring to make a real difference to the lives of people in Ireland through safe, smart driving practices.”

Safer roads and free coffee? It's win-win!



In possibly one of the most terrifying cases of road rage, watch the shocking moment a rhino dove head first into a tourists car.

The footage was taken by another tourist in a car up front, where the rhino takes an unusual interest in the Toyota truck.

It is then seen going into a full-on sprint and ramming into the car full of scared tourists, and to be honest, if that was us we'd have a legit meltdown.

The footage was taken in Etosha National Park in Namibia, Africa, and believe us, it's super scary stuff.
