Earlier this week Justin’s manager Scooter Braun revealed that the trio had been hanging out together in Los Angeles, with Justin confirming the meeting when he tweeted: “@NiallOfiicial @zaynmalik good time fellas. Welcome to la”
Obviously this made us very happy. There’s nothing we like better than hot guys getting along.
What didn’t make us happy was the lack of photos documenting the event. Well, thanks to Justin, that’s no longer the case – because he posted this AWESOME snap earlier:
When Katy Perry presented One Direction with the award for Best Pop Video at the MTV VMA’s last night, she did what any red-blooded female with a pulse would do in the same situation. She went in for a kiss.
Katy planted a smacker on the lips of the band’s singletons Harry Styles and Niall Horan, much to the amusement of the crowd – who went wild and possibly also a little insane with jealousy.
One Direction are the breakout stars of 2012, and they’re such a big deal that each member of 1D got his own MTV Video Music Awards promo video. And they’re all alike — and all hilarious.
In each clip, the camera zooms in on one member of One Direction — Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson — and films them walking in slow motion, looking around, smiling and generally being just charming and gorgeous, all set to their most recent hit, ‘One Thing.’ It’s deliberately cheesy and very 1990′s boy band — that’s the point!
We love all of our 1D boys, but we have to hand this one to Louis. He is such an incredible ham and such an incredibly bad actor, but he’s also the most obviously in on the joke. He’s such a goofball and he’s so much fun to watch.
If these clips are any indication, Justin Bieber and his Beliebers better watch their backs, because these videos are just as “Shareworthy” as the group’s actual music videos.
The band’s performance will do a great deal to promote their sophomore effort, ‘Take Me Home,’ which hits stores on Nov. 13. Their upcoming single, ‘Live While We’re Young,’ is already the fastest selling pre-order single ever. One Direction have that ‘One Thing,’ alright. And then some.

There can only be ONE One Direction! Over the summer, a battle was enacted between the U.K. One Direction and the U.S. One Direction over rights to the name. We’re happy to report that the U.K. version has won and gets to keep their name.
Beloved boy band One Direction are able to carry on with their name after reaching an agreement with a little known U.S. band of the same name. The U.S. band filed suit against Harry Styles and the boys, along with their label, back in April, claiming copyright infringement since they had registered the name. The U.S. 1D claimed that they had been using the name since 2009, whereas the British-Irish band began to use it in 2010.
The U.S. edition wanted the famous 1D to stop using the name on promotional materials and also requested a cut of their profits, which was a bold move. The famous 1D countersued.
However, the parties have reached a settlement and both sides are said to be happy and are moving forward, according to Ace Showbiz. So it’s not Two Directions!
The U.S. group, which began receiving hate mail and death threats from dedicted Directioners, is changing its name to Uncharted Shores and has updated its social media properties accordingly.
Something tells us that the U.S. One Direction, er, Uncharted Shores, got a nice chunk of change to give up their hold on the name and to let 1D continue on as planned. Best of luck to Uncharted Shores in their future.
Summer officially ends this weekend, but that’s not stopping celebs from tweeting away some super adorable and happy Twit pics. The Pretty Little Liars gals are just too cute for words and One Direction looks hot beyond comprehension in these pics, but what else is new, right?
See all our faves of the week below, and don’t forget to follow us on Twitter! What’s your fave pic of the week?

Even though there’s less than a week to go until the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, it’s getting pretty hard to wait for the show. Last night, however, MTV aired a special VMA-inspired documentary called “One Direction: My First Time” to give fans glimpses of past VMAperformances and sneak peeks of what they can expect during this year’s show. Not only is the episode hosted by One Direction (obv), but artists like P!nk, Taylor Swift, Rihanna and more make appearances to discuss their most memorable moments at past VMA shows.
Oh, and did we forget to mention that there are also some behind-the-scenes clips of the 1D guys in their underwear? Yep, that too. So, ICYMI, check out the video above and be sure to tune into the MTV Video Music Awards September 6 at 8pm ET!
What a week it’s been for pop music! It seems like everything on the internet is exploding with news of Taylor Swift‘s and One Direction‘s new albums, and we don’t hate it. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that both superstars are performing at the 2012 MTV VMAs next week? Regardless, we should probably mention that neither CDS are out yet, but both are SO anticipated that the interwebs are abuzz with details about them months before their release dates! Wowza!
Obviously these two upcoming albums have “Celeb Battle” written all over it (we know you were thinking the saaame exact thing), so now’s that time where you vote for which music you’re more looking forward to and tell us who you picked in the comments down there. But first, the lowdown on each:
Taylor Swift: Album title: Red Lead single: “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” which is reigning as number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Release date: October 22, 2012 What Taylor says about it:
We know that today is Liam Payne’s 19th birthday and all, but we kinda feel like we’re the ones celebrating. Why, you ask? Because Louis Tomlinson just tweeted some amazing news — 1D’s new album, set to hit this fall, will be titled “Take Me Home.” Um, don’t mind if we do.
So pleased to tell you that our new album is called “take me home” can’t wait for you to hear it! More news soooon! #takemehome
But let’s back on track here and focus on the real milestone — Liam’s special day! Even though he already celebrated the big 1-9 over the weekend, we figured now would be the perfect time for the directioners to give him some love. All you gotta do is leave your wishes for Liam down below in the comments, and we will personally deliver them to him. Jk. We don’t know him personally don’t live in England so that’s sorta impossible, but we will be sure to tweet these posts at him and pray to the lord above that he sees it. So worth a shot, right?
So get crackin’ on your birthday wishes below (the more clever the better!), and in the meantime, we’ll predict how we think Liam is spending his day:
