One Direction Outselling Bieber 10-1, 1D Comedy Television Show In Works + Harry Styles Googles The Band

OOne Direction are outselling Justin Bieber’s Dubai show by 10-1! Thousands of Dubai Directioners started queuing up for tickets, more than 14 hours in advance of them going on sale.

Thomas Ovesen, the operating officer of Done Events said: ‘It has just been incredible. The turnout was bigger than we had thought it would be. 1D’s show is by far the fastest-selling and most in-demand show that I’ve ever put on. Nothing has been as in-demand as this.

The One Direction sold twice as many tickets for Dubai, in only two hours, than Lil Bieby sold in an entire day. Harry Styles revealed to Very Magazine: ‘I Google [the whole band]. If there’s been something in a paper, I’ll Google it to look at the article online.

You have to think [what] people [say]. But you have to look after yourself, too. Otherwise you’d drive yourself crazy because you can’t please everyone. It doesn’t work! Discussions about another stadium tour next year are already on-going as well as their own television show.



Source told Daily Star: ‘A new TV show is also being discussed. At this stage the pilot sees them living in Los Angeles by the beach. Comedy writers will be working on it, so that it really gives all the boys a chance to shine and be a great advert for their new music.

The show will be peppered with guest cameos too. The plan is for the boys to see a pilot in the spring. No series has been commissioned yet and it is all very hush-hush.’

    I hope they don’t do that tv show, they’re singers not actors.

    • Duckyhoward15

      They always say that nothing happens just rumors :)

      • laura

        Thank god!
        If they would, they’d go on the same path as the Jonas Brothers and we all know how that went down. That being said, if it weren’t for Jonas, I’d totally suck at English right now haha

        • Marina And My Diamonds

          “the same path as the Jonas Brothers and we all know how that went down.”

          Smh! I still cry about this.

          • laura

            Me too… It’s all Bieber’s fault, that little prick.

        • Duckyhoward15

          Hahahha same , I started listening to english songs because of the Jonas bros

  • Smh

    So what lol? I don’t even like Bieber but I’d still rather pay to see him. He actually puts on a great show and is more a professional entertainer then all five of them who do dumb shit on stagetap each other asses or are just aawkwardly standing there with the most horrible stage presence. I just don’t see anything special in these guys their voices are nothing special either not to mention how childish their songs are to me personally. Just because they outsold Biebs there doesn’t mean shit. His tour was still better to me. Great energy and everything on point + he had a pre sale on these shows in Dubai they were selling the tickets differently. Even 5sos has a better performance and voices then 1D to me. Please directioners don’t kill me lol

    • Cali

      I agree with this. I saw one of their concert videos and I was bored as hell. But they’re in the same kind of market as bieber (teeny). If he doesn’t have a huge hit soon he’s gonna disappear for sure. And acts like them are gonna replace him.

    • jul

      you haven’t seen them live so…

    • Eva

      It is funny how many comments on the internet begin with “I don’t even like Bieber but…” user begins to defend said Bieber like their life depends on it.

      • Smh

        I don’t like him. Deal with it. I simply prefer him over them in everything. Is it illegal to say nice words about Bieber now? Pathetic. Get over yourself.

        • Eva

          Really? Mmmh…. Why so defensive?

          • Nina

            Better question is why do you care so much? People can say what they want without being judged by you. Nobody’s defensive they just think Justin Bieber is better that’s it. You always find something negative in everything.

          • Eva

            “People can say what they want without being judged by you. ”

            Doesn’t that include me as well?
            Either way, it is not a big deal, just a personal observation…

  • Angie.

    But their shows are boring as fuck -.-

  • anna

    im sick of the 1D and justin comparisons. its good 1D sold out a stadium really quickly, but that has nothing to do with justin.

  • http://zarriall-zombies.tumblr.com FuckHarry

    They better not do a tv show they don’t need it, and I hate when people compare them to JB like they might be the same age but they are different kind of performers like 1D sings, just messes around on stage, does funny and dumb things and that’s why their fans love them and justin sings/dances and puts on a good show from what I’ve heard.

    • Smh

      Justin seems to really take his entertainer image serious. From what I’ve seen when I went with my friends he really puts it in energy and hypes up the crowd but then gives great vocals on acoustic parts and gets more emotional while singing. I kinda prefer that other than messing around..I don’t like his behavior but his talent always surprised me. I just like what he offers in general more then 1D. I think his next album and tour will be even better and people will see the growth of him and his music.

      • http://zarriall-zombies.tumblr.com FuckHarry

        Yeah definetly justin is such a good performer and my cousin went to his concert and she said it was amazing and that’s good, personally I love that 1D doesn’t take it seriously and they are just having fun living their dream some people might hate it’s all on personal opinion. But we shouldn’t shit on one to bring up the other because they are both selling out shows and pretty much killing it in different ways.

  • ikeepempressedt

    well duh i mean they did replace him but jb is the better performer I’ll give him that…

    1D’s performances are always not that great. Like, not even Zayn’s vocals can save how lack luster their performances are.

    • laura

      I think the biggest problem with 1D is that they are a boyband but they can’t dance nor can they play instruments besides the occasional guitar strum. That’s why their performance are so dull, at least that’s what I think.

      • Tash

        Everytime I see Niall with a guitar, I want to take it & hit him with it. He needs to stop acting like he can play that thing. Learn privately then play it when you’re good. About a year ago I saw him try & teach the fans a song of theirs & he didn’t know what he was doing & they were so impressed :| It was only like 4 chords! I play the guitar better! And I’m crap! Hearing him sing & play ‘little things’, made me lose hope. It’s tragic that he’s a ‘professional’ musician. Louis can’t sing for shit either. I’d be pissed if I was an entertainer & had these guys beat me & sell more & all they do is walk back & forth aimlessly & do pervy idiotic things to each other with mediocre vocals & off the assembly line songs. Get the Janoskians some vocal lessons & they’d be on the same level as 1D.

        • laura

          I feel you! I never really understood why Louis and Niall got through, I didn’t even understand how Zayn got through tbh but at least he is slaying now with his vocals.
          I think they’re just very lucky that they started when the Jonas Brothers were coming to an end so they could take their place and they had even more luck because Bieber went on the wrong path. If they had started out two years earlier or if they had started out just now, they’d be irrelevant. But idk maybe that’s just me haha

  • lol

    both are terrible and suck tbh. i wouldnt pay shit to see 1d but justins shows do look a bit interesting. i wouldnt want to spend my money on him still, maybe if he wasnt a major asshole i would

  • imo

    Justin is a better performer, but his presentations looked robotic and impersonal on his last tour, except by the acoustic set. 1D has a better iteration with the audience although they lack everything else

  • Marina And My Diamonds

    In my opinion Justin’s music and performances are better than 1D (they’re messy on stage) but 1D’s image is intact.
    But to make it simple – it’s the cycle of teen girls.

    • Tash

      I still can’t figure out how they flew under the radar. Successful teen acts always get slaughtered by the media & public. But the media loves them & the public either like them or don’t care to hate them. It’s so weird. You can’t even attribute it to their branding or image. No one wins. If you’re good, they hate you. If you’re bad, they hate you. If you are ordinary, they hate you. But somewhere they escaped a lot of that scrutiny. Especially with the mediocre to bad music. They are even coming to South Africa! That’s how big they are. The only other teen star who came here was Bieber(he’s everywhere).

      • Nina

        I didn’t see TMZ make world wide headlines and millions of views on 1D smoking but when Bieber did it hell went down lol.

      • Marina And My Diamonds

        I think it has a lot to do with how Justin was portrayed. He was cute and his team made the mistake of trying to sell him to the public as this good wholesome act who makes no mistakes. I believe Justin is a sweetheart then his Dad fully came along and thus ass-hole Justin was created. When it comes to 1D they were pervy from the beginning.

        The only one who could sing was
        Liam – The voice.
        Harry and those curls, he was too cute – The looks.
        Zayn is who they tried to give the bad boy act to – The hot bad boy.
        Niall – The good wholesome lad with the guitar (he can barely play by the way.)
        And at last Louis – The goofy one.

        I found out about them from Tumblr, my timeline use to be filled with post about them so I finally looked them up. At the time they were still on X Factor. Later on when “WMYB” came out, there were many stories of them having frequent sex with fans (pictures to back it up), inviting them to hotels. They got drunk often, ran around tapping one another’s butts, etc. If you really look at it 1D was never a band for teeny girls. As you said, how they flew under the radar is a mystery.

        A lot of people hated Justin from the beginning so when he broke out of the image it gave those people who already hated him fuel. It’s like the public felt betrayed so they attacked him as well.

  • Emmy

    I can speak since I’ve seen 1D in concert. Something pretty obvious to me (for the last few years) is that Liam is clearly the best singer in the group, by a mile. I’m not sure if many people realize that his voice is pitch perfect, but also exquisitely trained. He doesn’t even use it to its fullest in 1D, but when I saw them perform, I could tell that he was holding back. As for the show itself — DULL. It felt so programmed and they looked exhausted. I actually feel ashamed for having spent money to see them last summer. I would buy tickets to a solo Liam show if the opportunity arises, but nothing else. His voice is smooth as butter and his vibrato has improved exponentially over the years. I think he should’ve been the one singing with Ariana Grande on Almost is Never Enough. IMO, he’s her male counterpart (vocally). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxIMJDGIuHw

    • jul

      zayn is better

      • Emmy

        Nope. Liam outsings them all. I’ve seen enough.

        • Marina And My Diamonds

          It’s true! Liam carried that band for a long while. Zayn use to be a mediocre singer just about better than Louis and Niall. Now all of a sudden fans are saying Zayn is the best singer in the group. I don’t know what’s wrong with their ears.

          • Tash

            I think people believe that because he always had a louder voice. Even when he was crap. So he comes in with that volume & serious face & posture & they get carried away. They also have been giving him the falsetto & the little riffs & runs. So it’s showing his ability. Lately Liam has kinda been pushed to the side & it’s the Harry show, with Zayn cameos. I won’t comment on the other two. I still don’t know how they made the band, let alone past the 1st round of X factor.

          • Emmy

            The management is clearly pushing Harry to the forefront and it’s quite tiring. I’m sick of hearing about his “relationships”. Liam has been pushed aside more than ever and I think he’s being too complacent. His vocals are stronger than ever, yet he’s singing the least. Louis and Niall… haha, what mediocre auditions. Zayn also had a bad one, at least he’s improved.

          • Emmy

            Absolutely, I actually think that the band was better when Liam led the vocals. It’s interesting that people are fooled by Zayn’s voice. He does all these riffs to hide the fact that his voice isn’t very strong.

    • Tash

      I still think Nathan Sykes is better than the whole of ‘The Wanted’ & ‘1D’. His tone & vocal acrobats takes serious skill.

      • Emmy

        Hm, I compared all the vocals. I have to disagree… for now because Liam has not had the opportunity to do any major vocal acrobatics. I can hear the technicality in his voice, but 1D’s songs have never allowed him to show it. His voice is actually oppressed. Nathan is definitely a strong singer though.

    • ikeepempressedt

      This is actually very fucking true. I hear all the time fans say that Zayn is going to be the JT of the group and I’m just like… have you seen the way Liam performs? He can definitely sing and I think he could probably dance if he was taught properly.

      • Tash

        If you recall, Zayn didn’t wanna go out & perform on the X factor, because he couldn’t dance & was embarrassed. Next JT?? These people who say this are possessed. Granted he can be trained even more & work with great producers. But he basically hides behind the other 4 & really can’t command the stage. He is not solo artist material.

        • ikeepempressedt

          EXACTLY. He just isn’t solo artist material. He’s too closed off, shy & skittish.

      • Emmy

        I’m counting down the days until Liam can sing on his own! I wouldn’t be surprised if he can dance. No one else in the group has Liam’s musical ear, that alone will take him far. I follow this tumblr that has a lot of great analysis of his voice. http://needsmoresarcasm.tumblr.com/

  • Duckyhoward15

    SOOOOOOOO PROUD OF THEM

  • Eva

    I have never been to any of their concerts (I am pretty proud of that fact) but I will go on a limb here and say One Direction is about to destroy Justin Bieber… which is expected as he basically destroyed The Jonas Brothers. This has been happening way before TJB, 1D and JB though.. So… Take a chill pill!

    • Lolingatyou

      I don’t really think so. Bieber is not easy to destroy like JoBro’s were ;) they were never on a level like Bieber got in just one year. With that being said, 1D can only use this year off while Bieber’s not doing anything and bragg around with their fans if they outsold him at few shows, because if Bieber gets his act together and comes back to the good old Justin, which is has a chance to, and comes back with a mature version of Believe/Journals he will swipe the floor with them. Specially since a lot of people ( age wise older ) gained respect for his music with Journals I am sure they would like his new material as well, not to mention if he prepares a tour like his last one, we all know he can out perform all 5 of them, he will be back on his game. 1D to me doesn’t show any maturity or growth with their music, Bieber on other hand surprised me with Believe and Journals, I could feel him growing and changing, he is taking more risks then them, while their music to me personally all sounds the same. Even his biggest hit ”Boyfriend” wasn’t just a typical pop song, it had that laid back beat that was stuck in my head. I don’t feel that with 1D not to mention their horrible performances and lack of stage presence which is important, I don’t even like their voices as much while JB with couple of his covers really did impress me with his vocals, he just needs better songs to show them off. I won’t write off Bieber so fast, he is unpredictable and more powerhouse to me.

      • Eva

        OK then…..

        • Pathetic

          I am just curious. You don’t like Ariana Grande’s perfect voice, you hate Miley’s music with a passion, you despise Lorde and you say you have never been to a Justin Bieber or 1 direction concert so I take it you do not like them too. You say you don’t like Selena for her music but only for unicef, you laugh at the jonas brothers and trash basically all the music or performances posted here especially Miley and Justin who you for some reason hate more than you hate Miley Cyrus. What DO YOU ACTUALLY LIKE? Are you here to just mock? What the fuck?

          • Tottally

            UPVOTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
            I swear she secretly loves Selena’s music but is too embarrassed to say it because she sucks so bad and yet she has the audacity to trash talk Miley and Justin when they are the spear headers of music in today’s society. There are people who have no taste in music and would blindly follow their idol and mock anyone who poses as a threat to their idol cough cough Selena Gomez.

          • Eva

            I honestly do not have time to post what is going through my mind right now. So…

          • Angie.

            She’s a typical blind selenator. It’s obvious from the always making excuses comments and hating on everyone except her. Meanwhile everyone else is better and slays Selena in many ways. Hatred on Bieber & Smiley is strong with Selena’s fans in denial.

          • HolyGround

            You hate on Selena too so stop trying to act like you’re so much better lol. You sound bitter…

          • Angie.

            I don’t like her. I don’t hate on her. Butthurt fan girl again. Disliking and hating is two different things get over yourself. I’m sure you got me mixed up with someone else. Since I haven’t even been on here for few months at all ;)))

          • HolyGround

            “I don’t hate on her” lmfao yes, you do? And the rest of the people-who-really-like-bieber-but-claim-not-to. I’m not even a huge fan of Selena, I think she’s gorgeous but I don’t think she’s all that talented. Sorry I definitely must’ve been confused since you and the other accounts are pretty much all the same. I just found it really funny how you attacked a person just because she doesn’t like Justin, Ariana or Miley. I get that you want to defend people who associate with justin but stop taking everything so seriously lol

          • HolyGround

            Uhh what the fuck she’s allowed to comment whatever she wants. Don’t talk about her secretly loving Selena when all you guys do is bash anyone who says anything bad about bieber and then claim you aren’t fans of his.

          • laura

            Since when is it a crime to dislike pop music? There is music out there other than the shit you hear on the radio jfc get your head out of your ass.
