One Direction Working on New Album

One DirectionOne Direction have no plans to split up, and are writing new music.

The "Story of My Life" hitmakers - who released their latest album Midnight Memories late last year - have already started work on their fourth record and Liam Payne has insisted they won't be breaking up for a very long time.

"We have been writing away for the next album and rehearsals are just about to start soon for the tour. We're not splitting up. We're on WhatsApp messaging each other all the time, talking about song ideas and just funny stuff from our day. It's been a while since we have all been together so we are enjoying being back in each other's company," he said.

His band mate Harry Styles also claimed the group - completed by Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Niall Horan - don't intend to call it quits, even if their career keeps them away from home for a long time. "We're not breaking up. We've spent every day together for months and forgot what my mum looked like. It's just holidays," he added.


One Direction Annoyed by Album Leak

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Leaks, Upcoming Releases, Pop

One DirectionOne Direction is "annoyed" that their album Midnight Memories has leaked online.

The boy band's third studio album is set for release on November 25, but tracks emerged on the internet yesterday, and they are concerned it will affect record sales.

"It is annoying because there's this big build-up and it affects sales. We really want a number one, so we're just kind of hoping for the best now. Hopefully people go out and buy it," Liam Payne said.

Louis Tomlinson is also frustrated and would rather people wait until the official release. "It's just frustrating when you work so hard on an album and you kind of want everyone to hear it at the same time. Some select fans won't listen to it until it's out, which is great. But there are others who obviously can't help themselves," he added.

Miley ensured she remained in the spotlight by sparking up what appeared to be a joint on-stage and then smoking it with Will Ferrell, who was at the awards as his Anchorman alter-ego Ron Burgundy, before accepting her Best Video prize for "Wrecking Ball." The blonde star told the crowd, "I couldn't fit this award in my bag but I did find this..."

One Direction also won two accolades, Best Pop and Best UK & Ireland Act, and the band's 19-year-old hunk Harry Styles was named Best Look - beating the likes of Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Justin Timberlake and Rita Ora to the gong - however none of the boy band were at the ceremony to pick up their prizes.

Taylor Swift’s New Songs to Set the Record Straight

Taylor SwiftTaylor Swift wants to set the record straight about her love life in her new songs.

The country singer is back in the studio writing new tracks about her short-lived romance with One Direction womanizer Harry Styles and is determined to tell people "what really happened" between them.

"When I'm writing songs, it's the only opportunity for my fans to hear what really happened. I'm in control of my life!" she told The Daily Mail. Taylor is famed for putting her failed romances with the likes of John Mayer and Jake Gyllenhaal in song, and teen heartthrob Harry is also expected to get the break-up anthem treatment after their bitter split earlier this year.

The 23-year-old musician is heading back to Nashville, Tennessee, to pen tracks for her fifth album and is prepared for an intense period of intensive songwriting: "This is the time where I start to really go into the studio non-stop and spend all my time writing songs. I scour my brain for every possible metaphor and analogy I can use to describe my life and emotions."

Taylor Swift’s “Trouble” Track About Harry Styles

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Gossip, Country, Pop, New Releases

Harry Styles and Taylor SwiftTaylor Swift's "I Knew You Were Trouble" is "100 per cent" about Harry Styles.

The singer had an on/off relationship with the One Direction hunk last year, with them initially splitting in April when he was spotted kissing a model in Australia. They then reconciled for two months at the end of the 2012, but split over New Year while holidaying in the British Virgin Islands. Now a friend has confirmed Taylor's single "I Knew You Were Trouble" - one of her famous break up songs about her exes - is about their romance.

"Taylor was crushed over Harry the first time they dated, and like she always does, she penned a song about him to deal with her broken heart. 'I Knew You Were Trouble' is one hundred percent about Harry. She knew he was young and popular with the ladies and wasn't ready for a serious relationship, but somehow hoped she could make it work," the source said.

Taylor Swift Pens Five Tracks About Harry Styles

Harry Styles and Taylor SwiftTaylor Swift has allegedly penned five news songs about Harry Styles.

Despite the "I Knew You Were Trouble" hitmaker only splitting from the One Direction stud last week, the singer has already channelled her anger into brand new songs about her short-lived romance with the 18-year-old womanizer.

"Taylor writes music in the same way that other women chat to their friends on the phone. It's been how she deals with her emotions for most of her life. Harry and Taylor only dated for a short time but there were very strong feelings, so it's been a tough comedown," a source said.

The 23-year-old country starlet is famously open about her string of A-list exes - who include John Mayer, Taylor Lautner and Jake Gyllenhaal - in her lyrics, but refuses to reveal which of her former flames each song is about, with the exception of her candid hit "Dear John."

One Direction Would Never Go Solo

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Gossip, Pop

One DirectionOne Direction would never consider solo careers. The "Little Things" group - Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik - are a solid unit and none of them could imagine a time when they'd break away and try to forge their own career.

"I wouldn't do it. We're together now, and that's it," Niall told Barbara Walters. Zayn agreed, adding, "It's not even a question." Louis Tomlinson explained further, saying, "We're just having an absolutely great time. It'd be wrong to look at it and be like, 'When is this gonna end?'"

Barbara also asked the band about an infamous incident when they were mobbed by eager female fans in Sweden who pressed their breasts against their car. Describing the situation, Louis said, "To the point where there was actually nipple marks all over the window. What dreams are made of."
