One Direction spoke to MSN about love, infatuation and who's the naughtiest band member!
When we were offered the chance to interview One Direction, never in our wildest dreams did we think we’d be sat discussing love and infatuation with ladies’ man Harry Styles. Yet the boy who’s been linked to several famous women since hitting the music scene in 2010 was frank about his opinion of love at first sight.
“I think you can definitely be infatuated with someone at first sight, and then you can fall in love with them,” the singer said.
“I’m not sure how much in love you can be with someone if you don’t know them.”
Wise words from the 19-year-old lothario! But did the rest of the band agree?
“Yeah, that’s true,” said Niall.
Harry continued: “You can see them and think, ‘Oh my God, I think I’m in love with them,’ and then you could talk to them and they might be really annoying.”
The boys are currently promoting their new documentary-movie This Is Us, showing what the band get up to behind the scenes.
And talking of behind the scenes, we wanted to know if the boys had any pre-performance superstitions or customs.
“Before the show we have a lot of rituals we don’t realise,” Harry said. “We all do the same thing each time. Right before we go on stage we have a little huddle, make each other laugh. We do the ‘hands in’ where we all put our hands in the middle and do one, two, three – push!”
Louis added: “We’re a bit weird. We just get into a huddle and say some strange words. And just be like, ‘Let’s do this’.”
Niall continued: “Yeah, it’s more like a routine so you don’t notice it’s a ritual. You see all this in the movie. People don’t know what happens back stage and you’ll be seeing it for the first time. It’s crazy.”
Nineteen-year-old Liam said: “The pre-show ritual is one of the only things we’ve actually kept proper secret, actually. Which is quite nice.
“We’re not good at keeping a routine or remembering to do things, but that we’re quite harsh on.”
With thousands of fans camping out in London’s Leicester Square before the movie premiere, the band’s immense popularity is obvious. But in every band there’s always a mischievous one!
Who is the naughtiest member of One Direction?
“I’m going straight in for this one,” Liam said. “I’m going for Louis as the naughtiest. What do you reckon, Zayn?”
“Louis is definitely the naughtiest,” Zayn agreed.
We’ll have to take your word on that one, boys.
