Oasis singer Noel Gallagher told GQ about One Direction: ‘F**king idiots. Bless ‘em. Bless ‘em, but f**k ‘em at the same time. Banal pop music, like One Direction, say.. what I think is, everybody’s winning out of it. One Direction aren’t working in the local f**king Costcutter, so they’re winning. The geezer who’s writing the f**king s**t tunes, he’s winning. He doesn’t even have to leave the studio. He’s got f**king new houses coming out of his ear holes.
The record company are winning, ‘cos they’re all getting their f**king bonuses at Christmas. The young 12-year-old girls are winning because one day they might actually grow up to give one of them a b**w j*b. They’re all winning. No-one’s losing! The only people who are losing are idiots like me at 9.30 in the morning when you’re trying to get the kids out the door for school, and they’re f**king murdering one of Blondie’s songs.’
Liam Payne revealed: ‘To be fair it has been quite difficult in Australia this time. In the grand scheme of things worldwide I have gone out a lot less in Australia than anywhere else. I tried to go shopping one day and literally within minutes there were 60 girls following me around the shops. If one picture of you gets Tweeted everyone knows exactly where you are and that’s you done for the day then you’re stuck with people following you around.
We are just normal lads, we do want our privacy sometimes just to throw a football around and let off a bit of steam, rather than constantly being in the public eye.’ Niall: ‘You have to look past it sometimes and just get out. There’s no point living like a prisoner in your hotel. Even if they are nice hotels.’ Harry: ‘I always feel kind of out of breath. We’ve just had a break. I was ill at home for the first five days. [I go to my mum's], where there’s tea on the table. When you’ve been away you appreciate it so much more.’
