Zayn Malik revealed to The Sun that he feels extra protective of 18-year-old Harry: 'He is the baby of the group but people seem to forget that because of the way that he is and that he is so charming. So it is a little bit upsetting sometimes if you see him with the weight of the world on his shoulders. It does annoy us a bit. He’s a young kid and people are just giving him grief for no reason
Zayn told Fabulous: '[I’ve smoked] since I was about 15. At the moment I’m probably on about eight or nine cigs a day, which I tell myself isn’t too many. I just don’t want it to affect my health. When I get older, I don’t want to be one of those dads that can’t jog through the park without running out of breath after ten minutes. It’s proving difficult.'
When Colin Farrell told Jonathan Ross his story about quitting it inspired Zayn: 'He wrote a letter to tobacco about a year and a half ago saying ‘it’s been great, thank you for being there through the good times and the bad, but someone else needs you,’ and then burnt the letter of the cooker and got rod of it. Hopefully I’ll stop too.'
Zayn Malik told The Sun that he was scared of Perrie Edwards' brother: 'I went up to meet her Mum and family the other month. I was a bit scared of her brother to be honest, he’s in the Navy. He’s a big bloke. I thought he was going to be a bit defensive of his sister but he was really cool.'
On missing out on important times of his sisters lives: 'It’s been really hard. Last weekend was the first time in six months that I’d been home. It’s pretty strange because you have images of people in your head when you left, then you just think they’re going to be the same when you come back, like time freezes. I have sisters and from the ages of 11 to 13, it’s a big change for girls.'
Harry Styles told The Sun: 'I do have a lot of fun but I’m not half as busy as I’m made out to be that’s for sure. I don’t want to be viewed as a womaniser or whatever. I don’t like going crazy crazy, I like having fun but it’s nice to wake up in your own bed, isn’t it?' Source told HEAT about Liam and Danielle's breakup:
'It’s not just Liam’s band commitments, Danielle has a busy work schedule as a dancer. She can’t just follow Liam around the globe. It didn’t seem as if they had a future. [Twitter hate] did get to her. It was a factor, she can’t help but take some of the things said to heart.'
Liam told The Sun that he worries about Zayn: 'We've (the band) had such a good laugh together and achieved so much together. We're definitely like brothers. The only person I really worry about is Zayn, because I don't think he's quite accustomed to all of this. He had a terrible time on Twitter.. I don't think he's quite adjusted to it yet. I'm sure he'll get it. He's my best mate. I've got to look out for him.'
Liam is NOT officially dating Leona Lewis. Source told Metro: 'To call it dating at the moment is a little far down the line. They've seen each other a few times.'More pix of Harry and Ed HERE!
Liam Payne revealed to TWIST about his worst kiss: 'I was about thirteen and the girl was a little bit weird. Itwas less of a kiss. She kind of just licked my face. It was a bit strange.
I was a bit of a naughty boy at school. I was often called into the headmistress ' office in the first few days. I used to have water fights in the toilets and climb on the roof to get the footballs back.
In junior high I tried out for the cross country running team and I came in first in the race. From then on I was training all the time and getting up at 6 AM to run for miles. At the age of 12 they put me in the school's under 18's team.'
Zayn Malik revealed: ' I was a bit of ahndful when I was a kid cause I was quite hyperactive. Even in the house my mum used to put me in my pram because I was so full-on! I felt like I didn't fit in at my first two school because I was the only mixed heritage kid in my class.
When my sister and I moved to a different school it was a lot more mixed so I felt like I fit in better. Also, all of the girls wanted to know who this new kid was and I becamse cool. I was about 12 or 13 when I started taking pride in my appearance. I'd get up a half hour earlier than my sister so I could doo my hair!'
Harry Styles has been picking up tips in the bedroom department from Fifty Shades of Grey. A female friend ‘forced’ him to read it. He told The Sun: ‘It seems interesting. I could probably learn from it, I don’t know. I feel like it’s an educational and interesting read.
I like having fun but it’s nice to just wake up in your own bed isn’t it? I think I’ve got my head screwed on. I do have a lot of fun but I’m not half as busy as I’m made out to be, that’s for sure. I’m doing stuff that every other 18-year-old lad is going but it gets written about.’
He can’t think about life post-One Direction because he sees his bandmates Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson as his ‘brothers. Naturally I wonder how long it will last. But we get on so well I can’t see us having a massive bust-up or anything like that.'
Louis Tomlinson Celebuzz interview: 'I will definitely defend our image. Obviously, I won’t stand for people saying things or writing things that aren’t true. I just think that’s disrespectful.'
Britain's Labour Party leader Ed Miliband said that after seeing a calendar One Direction on the wall of his secretary, he pointed to band member Harry Styles, 18, and casually remarked: ‘This guy’s a bonking machine.’
According to The Sun, the Harry's North London neighbors believe Dick Turpin's ghost has been seen inside the £3 million property which backs onto the pub that the outlaw and his mates used to drink at.
'The ghost of Turpin has been spotted in the window and according to legend you can hear the sounds of his horse Bess’s hooves. Locals say he used to hide in the courtyard next to the pub waiting for his victims to come down the road before robbing them.'
Louis told Fabulous when asked whether he's thankful that Harry's antics take the heat off him and the others: 'I don’t know about thankful. I feel sorry for him sometimes. I mean it can be quite intense but he knows when he’s going out to these places that sometimes these kinds of things happen. And yeah, it’s easier for the rest of us.'
The Wanted on comparison: 'I think there’ll always be that comparison with ‘This person said this, and this person from that band..’. There was that with N*Sync and The Backstreet Boys, and we just take the banter on the chin.' Would they be bigger without 1D? Tom Parker: 'It is true, it is true! It’s spot on. We probably would be bigger if it wasn’t for them, but it’s fine.'
One Direction have hired the bodyguard who tried to save Michael Jackson on the day he died. Alberto Alvarez, 36, worked for Michael and was present at Jackson's rented Los Angeles home on the morning of his death.
He told The People newspaper: 'I'm really excited. They're a great group of young men and they have great talent. I am proud to work for them. Working for the boys has pulled me through a terrible time. It really helped me cope with what happened three years ago when Michael died. I've been through the mill but I am coming out the other side..
The events of three years ago are less heavy on my mind. They won't ever go away but I do feel better. I started working as a bodyguard again last year. And working for One Direction, the biggest boyband in the world, is so exciting. I did some work for them in California last year and they liked me.'
TV Guide scans HERE! More interviews under!
Sunday Times interview: The only things they still have control of is their hair and sleeve-rolling. All crucial decisions here, 'What’s crucial?” asks Louis, 'come 100% down to us', he nods. He sits at the table while the others have their photographs taken. Behind him, Niall is half-naked. At any given point, one of them is half-naked. It’s like their clothes hate them.
I interview them one by one, grabbing them and shouting 'Sit' like puppies, whereupon they peer at the chair and say, 'This is very formal.' Upstairs they try on yet more padded jackets and skinny jeans, and gab about Perry and debate which tops are 'more Harry' or 'more Liam', even though all the tops are exactly the same, and they are too. Then they rush off for some sweets.
The publicist brings them two bags of Haribo at 5pm every day, and come and leave me bits of noninformation like doggy treats. It’s odd, like trying to interview milk. I get confused about which is which, and keep asking them about the wrong girlfriends. I still can’t guarantee I’ve matched the right quotes to the right boy, but Liam is definitely a bit angry and cried at the Katy Perry movie Part of Me and recently worried about having 'piss' flung at him,
Because Cher Lloyd had that at a festival. Niall is frightened of sushi and is 'too young' for a girlfriend, but weirdly too old for his hair, which has Shane Warne highlights and has been like that since he was 12, 'so I’m getting past it now'. He seems flustered by girls, 'I don’t want a girlfriend, man, not yet'. His ideal date 'would be a theme park', he says,
So he wouldn’t have to make conversation. 'Like, if you have dinner it’s awkward, and if you go to the cinema it’s been done a hundred times, so a theme park is a good way of not making it awkward.' Who gets the most girls? 'We wouldn’t ever objectify women, ever,' he says, solemnly. I explain the question isn’t about objectifying them, just fancying them. He thinks. 'Harry gets around, doesn’t he?'
Liam Payne, 19, is dating long term crush Leona Lewis, 27, reports The Mirror. eona, 27. Source: 'He is really excited about how things are going with Leona. As soon as the chance came to ask her out he grabbed it, and they really enjoyed their dates together.
Although they were in London they managed to stay out of the limelight and are really into each other.' The romance started this summer: 'Leona told how she enjoyed giving Liam advice about his career. It was all harmless fun at the time. But now Liam seems to have moved on to Leona. He is not at all bothered about the eight-year age gap.'
In September Liam described him as 'the sweetest boy'. She told Sugarscape: 'Basically, through my Twitter I was getting inundated with these girls telling me that I needed to follow Liam Payne, literally to the point where my Twitter wasn’t working, so I was forced to follow him.
Then I found out that he is a fan of mine and really likes my music. "I met him and he is just the sweetest boy, he is so lovely, so I’m really pleased that everyone got me to follow him!'
Liam touring strained his relationship with Danielle: 'Liam has jetted around the world with girls lusting after him. While he was never unfaithful, it was hard for Danielle to cope. She would have loved to have seen more of Liam, but his career had to come first. It’s sad they’ve had to part. But you could understand why a woman like Leona Lewis would be able to cope with Liam’s superstar status.'
Zayn Malik revealed to FABULOUS how racist, anti-Muslim remarks that he and his family were terrorist infuriated him: 'You can say whatever you want about me, I’m not really bothered. But when it starts to upset people I care about or I hear about it from my mum, then that’s a problem. Nasty things [were said] like I’m a terrorist, and this and that. How can you justify that? How can you call me that and get away with it?
My little cousin put up a family picture at Eid because she got a photo with Perrie and she was so happy about it. But then everybody just gave it to me double barrel. We live in 2012 and I thought we’d moved forward. If that was said to me on the street or if someone said it to me to my face or whatever then something could be done about it.'
