Niall Horan Finally Admits There’s No One Direction Reunion In Sight

Niall Horan Finally Admits There's No One Direction Reunion In Sight billboard magazine featureNiall Horan covers the latest issue of Billboard. The Irish singer-songwriter opened up about his solo career, which is just beginning. He also dished on that One Direction reunion that seems a little open ended.

“I told my ­managers from the start: When One Direction comes knocking, fook what I’m doing. I don’t give a shit if I sold out arenas or won Grammys. I wouldn’t be doing this if it wasn’t for that,” Niall said, sharing his commitment to the group. As a solo artist now, Niall said he misses the group dynamic off-stage more than on.

“Every now and then you’re like, ‘Fookin’ hell, where is everyone?’” he shared. “You’re sitting in an airport lounge, they call you for a plane, and you don’t stand up initially because you’re waiting on ­everyone else, you know? ‘Oh, Louis’ll be back from the toilet in a minute.’”

Looks Like Liam Payne Will Miss Out On A Solo Debut Number One

Looks Like Liam Payne Will Miss Out On A Solo Debut Number One featureLiam Payne is on track to be the third member of One Direction to miss hitting the top of the charts with his solo debut. Liam’s song, “Strip That Down” featuring Quavo from Migos, is projected to finish at number three behind Justin Bieber’s tracks “Despacito” and “I’m The One.”

Zayn Malik and Harry Styles both hit number one with their solo debuts, and Louis Tomlinson reached number two with “Just Hold On.” A third-place finish would put Liam’s solo debut ahead of Niall Horan’s “This Town,” which only hit number nine.

Could Liam have gotten a little too shady a little too soon about some of his 1D competition?

Harry Styles Makes History With Chart-Topping U.S. Debut

Harry Styles becomes number oneFirst the UK and now Harry Styles’ debut self-titled album is number one in the U.S. “Harry Styles” sold a total of 230,000 album-equivalent copies, breaking the record for best-selling British solo artist and beating Sam Smith’s numbers.

Although Zayn’s “Mind of Mine” didn’t do nearly as well as Harry’s solo effort, at least he can claim being the first British male artist to debut at number one. Together Zayn and Harry have helped One Direction join an elite club of groups who have had members debut at number one with solo albums. John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison of The Beatles and Beyoncé and LeToya Luckett of Destiny’s Child have all accomplished this feat.

Did you think Harry would go number one?

“He doesn’t really support the cause,” Liam said. Apparently, even as Liam, Harry Styles and Niall Horan are all releasing solo music, Zayn is the one former 1D star who can’t get on board. And Liam just can’t understand it.

Amateur Beyoncé Impersonator Gigi Hadid Knows Her Runway Walk Is Terrible

Gigi Hadid Compares Herself To Beyonce In Out Of This World Photo Shoot featureAnyone wishing Gigi Hadid would just leave planet Earth will love her new photo shoot for Harper’s Bazaar. The model went to the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, in Florida to shoot a space-themed spread for the magazine’s June/July cover story. During the shoot, Gigi explained what sets her apart from other models.

“Have you ever seen me shoot before?” Gigi asks an interviewer form Harper’s seeing Gigi work for the first time. “I’m, like different.” The reporter asked if Gigi meant something similar to the way Beyoncé turns into Sasha Fierce on stage.

“I wouldn’t say I’m as major as Beyoncé or Sasha Fierce, but, yeah, I understand what she’s talking about,” she says. Gigi knows that, despite aiming for Sasha levels of fierceness, she’s still susceptible to her emotions on her big jobs–especially on the runway.

“Obviously I’m not the best on the runway,” she admits. “I’m flat-footed, and I pretty much have a forced arch in my foot from playing volleyball my whole life. In the last six months, my walk has really improved because I’ve started to learn how to pad my shoes correctly to support my feet. It’s like you learn little tricks, and you focus on those.”

Check out Gigi’s new covers below, plus a video of her shoot for Harper’s.

Liam Payne Is Living The Dream With Baby’s Mother Cheryl Fernandez-Versini

Liam Payne Is Living The DreamLiam Payne’s cover story for Rollacoaster is finally out. The interview that saw Liam posing shirtless for the magazine cover and dishing on One Direction’s feud with Donald Trump is finally out in its full form, and it sounds like Liam’s life is full of joy. The new father opened up about falling in love with his partner and co-parent Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, a.k.a. Cheryl Cole.

“This is the thing,” he said, “In a non-cliché way, it’s weird waking up every day and literally living out your dream. You wake up in the most beautiful places. Obviously I have the most beautiful girlfriend in the whole world and she’s absolutely amazing. She’s been my dream girl since I was younger. She’s so ace.” The singer didn’t just end his compliments there, but continued to gush about his baby’s mother. “She is a wonderful, wonderful person and it’s amazing to have someone who can relate to so much of things, someone who’s taken greater steps than me.”

“Her solo career was amazing. She’s been in the industry for 14 years now. She fully supports me. We’re super happy. It’s a very personal, precious time for us. I’m still learning. I’m only 23.” The age gap with 33-year-old Cheryl apparently plays well for the couple, as they’ve welcomed their first child, Bear Payne, in the world.

Liam also shared a story about a not-so-happy time in his life: when One Direction lost in “The X Factor” finals. Liam said he was the only boy in the band who was holding it together to do a post-elimination interview. Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson were all busy crying in their mothers’ arms.
