One Direction, ‘We Are Very Mischievous’


One Direction Mirror chat. Zayn: ‘We’re five normal lads & we are not ­massively ripped, we don’t have amazing bodies and we freely admit we can’t dance. We had a girl who flew from Australia to America on her birthday just to meet us at the airport. Now that’s utter dedication. It’s unbelievable really.’

Niall: ‘You start to recognise the same girls because they turn up ­wherever we are, although there have been a few new ones recently. I’ve noticed a load from France. Maybe it’s their school holidays or something. ..We like doing the same things as them. You know, just mucking around and having a laugh.

We’re not going to be doing ­massively choreographed dance routines and start walking around doing air grabs and all that other cheesy stuff. That’s going to make it easier for normal kids to relate to us as most people can’t dance and most people aren’t really muscly.‘ Louis: The worst thing anyone could say to us is that our songs are cheesy because the way we act as a group is far from cheesy, we are very mischievous. Most of my mates and me would usually go

out in indie bars and we never normally like ­mainstream music at all. But they have heard the new single and they said, ‘oh, I really like your song’, which is a real compliment. And If you look at someone like Olly Murs his target audience would be girls. But someone like Robbie ­Williams ­appealed to everyone. He’s a bit of a lad and he has written amazing songs so no matter who you are..’re going to have a good time listening. That’s the kind of idea we’ve had for our album. We know we are ­living the dream, I don’t know if it will ever properly sink in. It’s such a dramatic change from what our lives were before and I can’t see it ever getting normal.

When we go home to see friends, we are around people who aren’t living the same life as us, so it’s still weird. But if any of us does start to take themselves a bit too seriously they’ll be getting a slap from the rest of the band to keep him in check.’

    I might just be being biased, but from what I see they don’t seem fake at all. Especially in interviews, they seem like normal guys, not programmed like most celebrities.

  • Peekaboo

    um what ever…

  • UKnowULuvMe

    I don’t think like their music…I don’t think they’ll be a success in the US and if they are I don’t think they’ll last long. They may be popular in the UK, but I don’t know about here.But hey, I could be wrong. What do I know about popular music. Most of the music I enjoy isn’t popular.
