Harry ‘1D Not In Same League As Beatles’

Harry Styles revealed to EVENT Magazine: ‘We all sat and watched the film of them arriving in America.. And to be honest, that really was like us. Stepping off the plane, the girls, the madness. It was exactly the same as when we got there, just 50 years earlier.

But none of us think we’re in the same league as them music-wise. We’d be total fools if we did. Fame-wise, it’s probably even bigger, but we don’t stand anywhere near them in terms of music.’ Do YOU think One Direction are the new Beatles?

    Maybe, but I doubt it. Manufactured bands like that never last long and tbh, with all the bands x-factor is shitting out I wouldn’t be surprised if the little girls run to another band in 6 years or so.

    from his twitter, Harry seems like a guy who listens to oldies and indie song. Why is he becoming a pop tart artists instead? Something about that is making him something he doesn’t want to be. Can’t wait for him to make his own music he likes, that will make him last longer in the industry.

      You’re generalizing. Have you take a shot at listening to their new album? Probably 2 or 3 out of the 18 tracks are to be considered pop. Most of the tracks came out folk-ish and indie to crowds. Listen to Something Great or Happily, which Harry wrote.

    I think people should really respect him for saying that. A lot of people keep assuming that One Direction thinks they are better than the Beatles, but it just isn’t the case. It is the fame that is the same, not the music. Harry expresses that very clearly here.

    1D is better

    At least he admits they aren’t as musically talented as them
