Rydel of R5 BANG Showbiz: ‘We were at the Teen Choice Awards and they sat in front of me. At one point in the show they were trying to get everyone to ‘twerk’ and Rocky stood up and ‘twerked’ right by Zayn’s head.’
Ross has become a heartthrob like Harry Styles but says he never set out to be a teen icon and would rather become the next Mick Jagger: ‘Don’t think of it like the Harry of the group, think of it like the Mick Jagger, like the frontman.
‘I don’t want to be in any way like a teen icon of any sort.. I don’t aim for that, it’s cool if they think I’m that, it just happens but it’s cool to be just a musician.’ R5 dream of being as successful as One Direction and would love to play huge stadiums one day.
‘I think they have amazingly well written songs, they seem like really cool dudes, they seem like they enjoy it which is a good thing and they seem like they want it.’ R5 have just finished the European leg of their ‘Louder’ World Tour but are hoping to return to the UK this summer.
