How A Boyband Ruined My Life (or a One Direction Primer)

“Do you ever wonder why this music gets you high?

It takes you on a ride. Feel it when your body starts to rock. Baby you can’t stop

And the music’s all you got. This must be, pop.” – NSYNC

Hey you boys need a bigger couch? Nah, we're good!
Hey you boys need a bigger couch? Nah, we’re good!

brie-50-x-50-aviHere’s the story. One day, back in early April, I was minding my own business when my roommate came home from work and said, “Hey, have you heard of this new boyband One Direction? They were on the Today Show this morning, their songs are pretty catchy.” I responded with a blank stare because I had no idea who she was talking about. Later that week, I got my issue of Entertainment Weekly and there was a feature on the band for a concert they did in Dallas. I flipped mindlessly through the article and thought, “wow, those boys have a lot of hair.”

You know when you hear of something a couple times and it somehow manages to invade all aspects of your life? Well, that Saturday, I was watching SNL and oh look who is the musical guest, the boys with the hair. I watched their performance, got into the song and thought, “damn that one in the red blazer is cute.” However, my downfall was twitter and tumblr.

 

Slowly but surely the people I follow on both were talking about the band. My tumblr dash was filled with pictures but I was steadfastly ignoring everything. But, I am weak. I am SO weak when it comes to a boyband. I was a NKOTB fan, I was an NSYNC fan and I should have known I’d become a 1D fan. On April 18, 2012 I reblogged my first 1D post on tumblr. It was a pic of Louis tagged #This Is Not A 1D post (because denial is not just a river in Egypt). Then, THEN I saw the pictures of the boys in Australia. Specifically, I saw pictures of the boys with koalas. You guys, cute boys with accents WITH furry animals…I was a goner. From that moment on, I became obsessed.

As my bio says, I don’t like to half-ass my fangirlness, I own it. I found out all there is to know about the band, got their album, looked up their stint on X-Factor (more on that later) on youtube and fell down the rabbit hole. One Direction just isn’t for your kid sister. They’re for everyone. I’ve since seen them in concert three times. I have tickets to see them twice this year. I know more than any one person should know about five boys from England and Ireland, and this post is your entry into the phenomena that is One Direction.

Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik each auditioned for the 2010 season of X-Factor UK individually, but were cut before the judge’s house round. However, at the suggestion of Nicole Scherzinger, the boys were brought back and made into a group. They were mentored on the show by Simon Cowell, and came in 3rd place. Yup, 1D, one of the biggest musical acts in the world, didn’t even win X-Factor.

From X-Factor (and the subsequent X-Factor tour) One Direction signed with Sony/Syco and released 2 platinum albums, Up All Night and the recent Take Me Home (sure thing, Harry) which featured #1 singles. They’ve sold out arenas across the UK, US, Australia, and Europe for their tours. They have performed on the Today Show twice, on SNL, at the closing ceremonies of the summer Olympic games, for the Queen of England, sold-out Madison Square Garden, won a BRIT (England’s version of the Grammys), won 3 VMAs, were nominated for a multitude of other awards, announced a clothing line and fragrance,  got an endorsement deal with Pepsi, released a tour DVD, graced the covers of every neon colored teen magazine and more. But the best part? Most of that was done in 2012!

Sure, they’re hugely successful, but also, they’re just five really great men. So let’s get to know the boys of 1D.

Harry Styles, 19, Cheshire, England: Harry is the curly haired baby of the group and actually came up with their name. He’s a charming, slow-talker who has dimples I want to take a swim in. He boasts the most followers on twitter, coming in at 10.9 million. He’s adorable about his mom and sister and has a serious singing voice that just keeps getting deeper and haunting my dreams. He loves tattoos and has….well, a few to say the least. He is also *cough* BFFs *cough* with Nick Grimshaw, the BBC Radio 1 breakfast show DJ, and has stated his BFF within the group is Louis; they even lived together for a period of time. Oh, and if you’ve ever heard the smoosh name of Larry Stylinson, that’s them. Harry, or Hazza if you will,  is going to be my future husband. Ahem.

Liam Payne, 19, Wolverhampton, England: Liam originally auditioned for X-Factor when he was 14 and was sent home and told to come back when he was a bit older. Cue 2 years later when he came back and was put into 1D. Pretty sure he’s glad he took the judges’ advice. They call him the first verse man because on the album Up All Night, he starts off the majority of the songs. He’s also known as Daddy Direction because the boys say he’s the sensible one of the group, but lately, he and Louis get into more trouble than anyone else. Fun fact, 2 of his tattoos are dedicated to the boys because OF COURSE THEY ARE. He currently dates Danielle Peazer, a professional dancer he met on X-Factor.


Niall Horan, 19, Mullingar Ireland: Niall or Nialler, is the only Irishman (and blond) of the group. Not only does he sing, but he also plays guitar. No one, and I mean no one is a bigger fan of One Direction than Niall Horan. He’ll never say no to food, especially Nandos. He can call Justin Bieber a friend, and has one of the best laughs I’ve ever heard. He’s got a TON of energy on stage and one day I will have pints with him. He and Liam tend to do the most twitcams and interact with fans the most on twitter. If you ever need to know what the boys are up to, check his timline. And if you see a boy in a pair of supras and a snapback, chances are, it’s Niall.

Zayn Malik, 20, Bradford, England: Can you even read this post after seeing his picture? Probably not. His eyes and eyelashes make me want to set myself on fire and he has never met a camera angle he didn’t like. His voice has the soul of an R&B artist and he hits big notes that make you raise your hallelujah hand. Like Harry, he loves himself a tattoo shop. He is still supremely close to his family and friends from Bradford, and thanks to X-Factor we all know he can’t dance. But hell luckily for him, neither can any of them. He’s low-key witty and pretty damn smart. He currently dates Perrie Edwards of Little Mix, the winners of 2011 X-Factor UK.


Louis Tomlinson, 21, Doncaster, England: Louis, the oldest member of 1D loves a good prank, is probably the loudest and you’ll never miss when he’s in a room. The boys list him as the funniest of the group. In 2012, he was known for his trademark stripes and rolled trousers and makes you wonder how he gets all dat booty in those pants. He’s the resident footballer and makes you hope he’ll strike a goal in your net. He has a PhD in throwing shade and his crinkly eyed smile can make an angel cry. I have also listened to his solo on the song Moments more than I should ever admit to. He currently dates student Eleanor Calder.

Not only are these boys nice, and charming, they’re also talented. I’m always a little skeptical of seeing big acts live because I’ve been disappointed, but I can say with 100% certainty they sound even better live and they definitely do not lip synch. They co-wrote multiple songs on their album Take Me Home, working with various respected writers and producers and in fact, my favorite Ginger Jesus has 3 songs he’s written featured between their two albums.

And one last thing, they’re charitable. They work with Ray of Sunshine children’s foundation for seriously ill and terminal children. Louis is a patron for Blue Bell children’s hospital and even hosted a football event to raise money in support of them. Harry supported his mom in a climb of Mount Kilimanjaro that supported Believe in Magic, a charity for ill children. Niall rang in his 19th birthday with a golf outing that supported autism. And Zayn, along with the group flew to Africa on his 20th birthday to do work in support of Red Nose Day.

tumblr_mhgvmeG8XW1ra1ly1o1_500Red Nose Day (RND), a UK based charity has been around for 25 years and helps young people living in the streets or living with domestic abuse. In Africa, donations go to saving thousands from malaria with life-saving vaccines. This year One Direction is helping out as much as they can. The boys recorded a single, a cover of Blondie’s One Way Or Another, for RND, which went #1 in 60 countries. All profits from that single go directly to RND. Additionally, they went to Ghana, Africa  to see firsthand what the money from RND goes to and if this video doesn’t break your heart (and make you want to donate to RND) I don’t know what else will.

 

 

tl;dr That is One Direction. I dare you to take a chance and check out their music. Maybe you’ll even dance along to it, and maybe just maybe, I’ll end up seeing you at one of their shows this year singing out all the words like the rest of us.

-Brie

p.s. Tonight, the boys are performing at the BRITs and are also nominated for two awards. Want to flail about the performance? Leave it in the comments!

    IM ALL WEEPY AND I HAVENT EVEN READ IT ALL YET

    • Brie Keysmash

      Eeeeeep!

  • heidisamiam

    Every single one of the pictures you have chosen HURTS MY SOUL. The first picture on the couch might be my favorite pic of them, if it’s even possible to choose such a thing. And the Liam pic. I miss Liam’s hair, Brie. I just…miss it.

    This was an AWESOME primer. I particularly like your spot on summary of each member. And, believe it or not, I actually learned a thing or two–I had no idea they were coming out with a fragrance. Do you think it’ll smell like them? I bet collectively they smell like sunshine, ink, and hair gel. Which, actually, sounds kind of pleasant.

    • Brie Keysmash

      I love them on a too small couch. It’s my favorite thing. Anytime I see an interview where they’re made to sit in individual chairs, my soul breaks a little. And I think theirs’ do too because they look like lost puppies.

      I’m so glad Liam is growing his hair back. I will definitely take the mini-quiff over the buzz cut, but I will also take the hair in that picture but only with the little flips.

      And yes, I think the fragrance will smell like them. Don’t forget the smell of leather too.

      • heidisamiam

        Mmm… I actually considered including leather. And some kind of food (although I couldn’t decide what). And maybe tea and a teeny tiny whiff of stale cigarette smoke. Which I confess, I enjoy.

        • Brie Keysmash

          Definitely Nandos chicken.

    RED CARPET!

    • Brie Keysmash

      A few things to go: Niall’s shoes, Harry’s quiff and flower, Zayn’s tie, Louis’ shoes (go darker) and Liam’s dragonfly pin. Like what is happening? I’m mad as hell.

      • Liz

        GOOD LORD I DIDN’T EVEN NOTICE THE DRAGONFLY

        • Brie Keysmash

          What is this significance. Someone tell me.

          • Liz

            It better be someone’s grandma’s pin cos otherwise that shit don’t make no sense.

  • popfly

    But someone talk to me about Zayn’s tie.

    • Brie Keysmash

      Girl. I cannot even start on this bolo tie wild west realness right now.

      • Liz

        LIKE WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK? Is it a ribbon though? Like they are bajillionaires and they tie a fucking ribbon around his neck? WHAT IS THIS BULLSHIT.

        • Brie Keysmash

          Who thought it was a good idea? Caroline and I are going to have words!

  • Brie Keysmash

    But why did Lou T give Harry a roller set? Mad.

    • ArcadianMaggie

      Needs more alcohol.

      • Brie Keysmash

        I hope they get as drunk as they did last year.

        • ArcadianMaggie

          We can only hope.

        • Liz

          Yes please! I need Red Cheek Direction later with bonus Drunk Finger Pointing.

    • Liz

      Tell me he didn’t ask for that shit so he and Grimmy could match though.

      • Brie Keysmash

        Of course he did!

        • Liz

          Only way that hair is okay, frankly.

    • Brie Keysmash

      Vogue UK says, “One Direction wearing a mix of Alexander McQueen, Burberry, Topman and ASOS.”

      From high end to everyday wear *cough Niall’s shoes*

      • Liz

        Freebies?

  • Kristi

    I wish Harold would just toss that ugly ass flower, it looks like a small coffee filter DONE

    • Brie Keysmash

      A coffee filter though. BYE.

  • Brie Keysmash

    I’m upset by this look and not in a good way. This is the BRITs. They should be slaying the red carpet and everything is falling flat except Harry’s hair.

    • Kristi

      HE NEEDS TO SHAKE…BAD

      • Brie Keysmash

        Can it rain on his head? Or something? I need that poof to go DOWN NOW.

    • Liz

      I like his flower though? UNPOPULAR OPINION?????

      • Brie Keysmash

        It looks like a snowball to me.

        • Liz

          It kind of does, yeah. Or like one of those yarn pompoms! Lux made it for him.

        • Kristi

          LMAO!!!!!!

      • ArcadianMaggie

        I am here for the flower. And the patterned shirt.

        • Brie Keysmash

          I love the shirt too.

  • Brie Keysmash

    I do however, LOVE Grimmy’s waistcoast.

    • Liz

      I CANNOT EVEN TALK ABOUT THIS PICTURE. OKAY FOR ONE THOSE SHIRTS FUCKING MATCH TELL ME THEY DON’T. TELL ME THEY DON’T.

      ALSO HE LOOKS SO GOOD? JESUS HELP ME.

    • Kristi

      My favorite so far <3333

  • Danielle

    NO. Basically my reaction to what the boys are wearing tonight okay because I am so not here for it I’m practically back around and here again. Okay that made no sense. I’m going to get a glass of wine. Alcohol makes crappy tv a million times better

    • Liz

      Good call. I don’t hate it as much as some other people do, but there are some things that are just plain wrong.

    • Brie Keysmash

      Bahaha I know exactly what you mean. I wish I could have some wine right now. :(

    • Kristi

      GET THE BOTTLE.

      • Danielle

        I think this is probably the best response I could give you guys

        • Brie Keysmash

          I love it (and you) so much!

          • Danielle

            /smooch

        • Liz

          BEST.

  • Brie Keysmash

    You guys, I can’t lie. I am into Taylor Swift’s dress. She looks super glam.

    • Kristi

      SAME.

    • Liz

      On a completely superficial level she is bringing it tonight, ngl. That dress is F I E R C E.

    • Danielle

      Me tooo. The last couple have been awful but she’s really rocking it tonight

  • Liz

    ED!

    • Brie Keysmash

      Hmm not feeling the shiny material. Love his sneakers though!

      • Liz

        I’m normally okay with a shiny suit, but I feel like it maybe the cut/fit and the fabric together are a bad combo? Like it lays funny and the shininess emphasizes that?

    • Kristi

      I like his shoes. THAT’S IT.

  • Liz

    RITA!

    • Kristi

      Looks trashy but classy. I LOVE YOU RITAAAAA!!

    • Brie Keysmash

      Love the color but the edges look unfinished and I don’t like that drape on her butt. I do like her red lip and hair pulled back a lot though.

      • Liz

        I thought the same thing about the edges and the backside. She is working the shit out of it though. I need different angles.

    • Danielle

      Ew no not a fan of this at all. Okay I like the cut out sides a bit. I am a huge side-boob fan

      • Liz

        I LOVE A GOOD SIDE BOOB! And let’s be real, if I want to see anyone’s side boob, it’s Rita Ora.

        • Danielle

          Eh I’m not a big Rita fan but yes, I can admire anybody’s side-boob, regardless of my personal opinion of them tbh

          • Liz

            You can be a fan of Rita’s boobs (side, under, upper, whatevs) without being a fan of her. She’s got a great rack.

  • Liz

    Does Ben Howard have a drink on the red carpet? I’m starting to love this guy.

  • Brie Keysmash

    I didn’t even recognize Jessie J!

    • Kristi

      CUTE. When is she suppose to shave her head?

      • Brie Keysmash

        I think for the actual red nose day broadcast in March?

    • Liz

      She is just FABULOUS. Though I miss the bangs (just cos people used to say I looked like her, but it was only because we had the same bangs, not so much anymore).

  • Liz

    I am seriously loving all this Olly Murs love. First Ed says people need to stop talking about him like he’s just an X Factor guy, Calvin Harris is saying Olly should win their category, LOVE IT. #teamolly

    • Brie Keysmash

      Yeah it was the same on Radio 1 too. People were saying Olly has it in the bag.

  • Kristi

    I hope Neyo has a cold or somethin’…because there is NO EXCUSE for that scarf ok

    • Brie Keysmash

      Right? He is wrapped up tight!

  • Kristi

    Harry’s hair is worse than I thought…SIGH they’re being interviewed now

  • Liz

    BOYS ARE ON THE RED CARPET. as;dlfkj

    Niall chose Mumford to share a dressing room with so they could have a jam session. Harry said they’re good at dance moves. Zayn’s going to practice his backflips. If they can’t rock the clothes they can at least rock their interview. BLESS THEM.

  • Brie Keysmash

    “Zayn is a better dancer than Justin Timberlake” I’m cackling at the boys on the red carpet.

    • Liz

      Whatever their clothes look like that interview was too cute. Noticed Louis’s wearing a patterned shirt too.

  • Danielle

    But who is Jessie Ware? Genuine question, because I know she was on Grimmy’s show and I think I’ve heard her song, but I don’t get her? Or where she came from? Or like, what genre she is?

    • Liz

      That’s about as much as I know about Jessie Ware.

      • Danielle

        I’m so confused because she seemed to have come out of nowhere and I’m just like Who are you why should I care who you are? AND NO ONE CAN TELL ME

        • Brie Keysmash

          Yeah you know about as much as me.

  • Liz

    I LOVE HOW RIZZLE KICKS ARE SO BLOWN AWAY BY DAVE GROHL AND DAVE IS LIKE “Dunno who’s performing, they’re serving food right?” ;sldkfj;alskdjflksdj

    • Elle Keysmash

      I hate One Direction. I hate Ed Sheeran. I hate all OF THEM.

      • Liz

        And Elle sums it up in one comment!

  • Liz

    But can Rizzle Kicks do all red carpet interviews for all awards shows all the time?????

  • Liz

    I really love Muse. Like a lot.

    • Brie Keysmash

      Literally, the only Muse song I know is Supermassive Black Hole because it was in Twilight LOL

      • Liz

        One of my besties LOVES them, we used to listen to them in our apartment all the time. Our first dance at his wedding was to a Muse song.

        • mycrookedsmile

          ds is going to Muse on Sat night. He’s verra verra excited. Dh going with him.

          • Brie Keysmash

            Oh I bet he is!

  • Liz

    Fallling in love with Emeli Sande right now.

    • Danielle

      She’s so cute!! And I love how she combines both of her backgrounds/heritage’s in her music. I’m not a fan of Cloud or w/e her latest single was, but I do love her in general

  • Brie Keysmash

    Harry covering his face when James made the comment about Sharon Osborne. Aw babes.

    • Liz

      I MISSED IT MY FEED CUT OUT WHAT HAAAAAAAAPPENED?????????

      • Brie Keysmash

        James leaned over to Harry and goes “Sharon Osborne (and someone else older) are here tonight, who are you going home with?” and Harry took the BRITs program and covered his face LOL

  • Liz

    Am I the only one that thinks Robbie Williams’s voice is kind of going as he ages? Staging for this performance is pretty slick though. And it’s a catchy song!

    • Danielle

      Definitely going. He just doesn’t have the same tone to it anymore

  • Brie Keysmash

    Though the boys lost, I’m SO HAPPY Mumford won!

    • Danielle

      SAMMMMEEEEE I love Mumford horrifying amounts omg

    • Liz

      Same same same. But I missed the 1D mention in the speech. Tell me it wasn’t shade.

      • Brie Keysmash

        I actually don’t think so because they looked pretty damn giddy and they KNOW how big 1D is right now. Plus they don’t seem like the types to throw shade like that.

        • Liz

          I didn’t think they would either, phew.

  • Liz

    Grimmy totally waved at Harry didn’t he?

    • Brie Keysmash

      Did he? I had to switch screens because someone came in my cube. (oh yeah, still at work).

      • Liz

        I’m pretty sure he totally did. Right after he thanked James for that intro he looked down at the tables and did a little wave and said, “hi,” kind of sheepish even.

  • ang

    As a non-fan (no, really), I have actually read this whole thing (yes, really), and I’ve come to a couple of conclusions:

    1) That is a LOT of hair. I mean, like, whoa. And yes, too much bouffant on that red carpet photo, I think. His hair needs like, its own time zone.
    2) Zayn’s the cutest one, IMO. Also, coolest name of the band.
    3) I feel that Louis looks a bit like a less skinny version of Jamie Campbell Bower, which is weirding me out a little, NGL. Sorry if any of you can’t un-see that now.

    I’ve heard one 1D song all the way through, once. But my younger sister is in love with these boys like I was in love with BSB/NSYNC, so I totally get it.

    Prior today, I knew 3 of their names, but not which one was which. And now, I can probably have intelligent conversation with my sister about them, which is something. 😉 This is not to say that I won’t seek their music out, at some point, but for now, I think I’m happy to stand on the sidelines. Ha.

    • Brie Keysmash

      Hehehehehe! I am SO glad you read the whole thing! And that now you can have a proper conversation. Zayn was the first one I even paid attention to in the group too. He’s stunning. And yes, Harry’s hair is usually big but tonight, they gave him a roller set or something. I just….Idk what is happening.

      I shall come to Austin and make you listen to both albums. Yes.

      • ang

        LOL!

        I approve of this plan. My sister would, too. She has 1D wallpaper, currently. 2 of the 4 walls of her room. #nostalgia

        😉

  • Brie Keysmash

    Is Justin Timberlake in a patent leather jacket?

    • Danielle

      DAMN I hope so he looks and sounds so fucking good I’m all aflail about him (Not a fan of the hair though)

    • Liz

      I MISSED IT COS MY STREAM ISN’T WORKING UGH UGH UGH RAGEFACE

      • Brie Keysmash

        IMO, his Grammy performance was better. He just did the song Mirrors which I’m still not into.

  • Brie Keysmash

    Hi, new favorite Harry Styles cupcake face!

    • Liz

      kfajs;dlkfja;lskdjf DIMPLES YOU CAN SWIM IN

  • Brie Keysmash

    Time for ONE DIRECTION!

    • Liz

      OKAY BUT WHAT WAS ZAYN’S JACKET?

      • Brie Keysmash

        He was missing a sleeve.

  • Brie Keysmash

    OMG THEY SOUNDED PERFECT!!!!!!!! I love the arcade theme to the set and all the fireworks etc. EEEEEP!!!! Good job boyssssssss!

    • Liz

      I AM HAVING A LOT OF LIAM FEELS?

      • Brie Keysmash

        SAME! He looked so good in that hoodie combo thing.

        • Liz

          HE REALLY DID! And he sounded so good. He’s just so consistent and strong vocally, and every now and I then I have feelings about him getting turned away from X Factor the first time and getting better and coming back and almost not making it and then BAM One Direction and they’re killing it and all he needs is his family and those four boys and OMG BRIE I AM DROWNING HELP ME HELP ME.

          • Brie Keysmash

            Yeah Liam sounded great. He’s been bringing his A-game lately and I am so here for that.

    • Liz

      ALSO HARRY SOUNDED SO GOOD. AND NIALL LOOKED SO GOOD. AND APPARENTLY THERE WAS A FLIRTY LOUIS MOMENT THAT I MISSED?

      • Danielle

        I CANT WITH ALL THESE FEEEEELINGSSSS

  • Liz

    CanNOT wait for the HQ video of that performance cos my stream suuuuuuuuuuuuucks.

  • Liz

    Putting Louis Smith and Jack Whitehall together on stage is painful, they are so attractive.

    • Danielle

      SO MUCH HOTTNESS ON ONE STAGE I CANNNTTT

  • Brie Keysmash

    There is a lot happening in Taylor’s performance once again. What is this dress?????

    • Liz

      I feel like her staging has gotten away from her lately. Her movements look unnatural when there’s all the production and dancing and whatnot going on. I’m assuming the dress was supposed to be masqueradey? IDK I just really don’t care for her, as catchy as that song is.

  • TichMarie

    I am totally jealous of you all watching. Just wanted to be the voice of the pouting-at-work-need-all-the-highlights-@-me-if-anyone’s-pictures-leave-the-phone fangirls out here. Love you guys. Mean it.

    • Liz

      <3 Sorry you're at work and have to miss it! If you have Fuse TV they're playing it tonight I guess? Otherwise if any juicy happens we'll put it here.

    • Liz
  • Liz

    Oh. Okay. I get the Ben Howard thing now. Damn.

    • Danielle

      SAME UGH I did not need another fave

      • Liz

        Right? Like that was a beautiful performance. I need to listen to all the things now.

  • Brie Keysmash

    OMG Harry had on those damn knee patch jeans during the performance.

    • Liz

      NO HE DID NOT.
