Early on in the evening, Aston tweeted, “Smurf, Styles and Merrygold 1st team night out!! Let’s get on it!! @ollyofficial @Harry_Styles BOSH A”

The Belfast Telegraph has reported that One Direction’s Niall Horan angered his neighbours on Tuesday night when a barbecue he was hosting got “louder as the night went on.”

Niall hosted the BBQ on the roof of his apartment block in London, where he and a group of friends were apparently singing, playing guitars and “banging on drums” all night long.

A source from the building told the Sun, “They got louder as the night went on. Music was being pumped out and in all the excitement, Niall jumped on his [life-sized] Barack Obama model and its arm came off.”

It could have been these shenanigans that caused Niall the sore throat he had this week, which forced him to pull out of rehearsals.

He had been due to join his 1D band mate in the studio to work on their second album, but on the morning of the rehearsals, he tweeted, “Waking up with no voice! Nooo…

“Sick day today! Now off to sleep.” Continue reading »

Hit songwriter and singer Ed Sheeran has revealed to MTV that he’s been busy writing love songs for One Direction’s forthcoming second album, which is due out later this year.

Ed apparently worked with the 1D boys on their first hugely successful album, Up All Night, and he was delighted when they asked him to pen more songs for them.

He said, “I wrote the three tracks that I gave [them] … when I was 17 and they were on my hard drive for a long time.

“And then I gave them one song for their last album and they came back and said, ‘Do you have any more?’ and I said, ‘Here’s a whole load. Take your pick.’”

And although the songs Ed wrote were inspired by his break up with a former girlfriend, he says they’re all “positive” because it had been a great relationship… Continue reading »
