Photos: October 3rd – Leaves a Secret ‘The X Factor’ Gig with Eleanor & Adam

Candids > 2012 > [October 3] Leaves a Secret ‘The X Factor’ Gig in Shoreditch, London with Eleanor Calder & Adam Burridge

The X Factor hopefuls must be quaking in their boots ahead of Saturday’s first live show we imagine, especially the wildcard acts. However, Adam Burridge can rest assured that if all goes tits up at least he’s got friends in high places.

Last night the X Factor star performed at a secret gig in Shoreditch and his pal Louis Tomlinson, of One Direction fame obvs, turned up to show his support.

Burridge narrowly missed out on a spot in Nicole Scherzinger’s category, but some of the boys who did make it into it tagged along to the reality star’s gig last night along with a small selection of his fans.

Louis arrived at the event with his long-term girlfriend Eleanor Calder in tow who, coincidentally, he’s been talking about today.

In an interview with The Sun, the 1D singer admitted that when he first got with the stunning model he texted her mother to reassure her he wasn’t a player. Louis divulged:

“I was worried about my reputation at first. I remember I sent Eleanor’s mum a few text messages saying, ‘Please don’t judge me thinking I’m like the stereotypical boyband type who is going to go around and sleep with everything that moves.

“I was trying to convince her I’m quite a good lad but I didn’t really need to. Her family are really cool actually and very understanding of the situation.”

“It’s important for me to treat a girlfriend with respect. My mum would be horrified if I behaved any differently – and I have sisters, and would hate for them to be treated badly by guys.”

Is he purposely trying to tug at his fans’ heartstrings or does it just come naturally to him?

One Direction Prep For ‘First Time’ At VMAs In MTV Special!

One Direction are set to perform at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards for the very first time, and we’re celebrating the VMA virgins with the brand-new MTV special “One Direction: My First Time.”

The special is set to air Thursday, August 30, at 11 p.m. ET/PT on MTV. The guys of 1D will host the special, which will not only feature their preparations for the big show, but also the most memorable VMA performances of all time.

“One Direction: My First Time” will include appearances from fellow 2012 performers Pink, Green Day and Taylor Swift, who will recall their own first times taking the VMA stage with never-before-heard tales. The VMA vets will offer up some choice wisdom to the One Direction guys, who will take the stage themselves Thursday, September 6, when the show goes live from Staples Center in Los Angeles. They are also up for two Moonmen: Best New Artist and Best Pop Video for their “What Makes You Beautiful” clip.

One Direction want to go big for their first appearance on the VMAs. “It’s quite nerve-racking, because obviously there’s been so many historical moments and stuff that have happened at the VMAs,” 1D’s Liam Payne told MTV News earlier this summer. “Now we want to make a moment ourselves, but who knows?

“I think performing at the VMAs is such a huge occasion,” Payne added. “I think it ranks up there with one of the best performances we’ll do so far.”

The 2012 MTV Video Music Awards will air live from Staples Center in Los Angeles on Thursday, September 6, at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Head now through August 24 to vote for your favorites, or text BNA to 22444 (message and data rates may apply) to vote for Best New Artist all the way through the show!



Are the gay rumors with Harry & Louis tearing the boys apart?

One Direction are known to be best friends as well as chart topping popstars but it seems gay rumours about Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson are tearing the band apart.

The boys, who have just returned from their hugely successful ‘Up All Night’ North American tour initially laughed off and joked about the bromance but now admit it is affecting they way the boys act around each other. Louis even hinted that it was affecting his current romance with student Eleanor Calder.

According to MTV News in an interview with Tumblr, the Donacaster native said: “This is a subject that was funny at first but now is actually hard to deal with as I am in a relationship.”

But it isn’t just his relationship with Eleanor that is being affected, Louis confessed that things had changed between him and Harry and that they can’t do anything in public together without it being misconstrued.

“Me and Harry are best friends, people look into our every move,” he explained, “it is actually affecting the way me and Harry are in public.

“We want to joke around but there seems to be a different rumour every time we do anything.”

Claiming it is just boys joking, the 20 year-old added: “I act the same way with Harry as I do any of the other boys and my childhood friend Stan.”

It seems the pressures of worldwide fame are starting to take their toll on the hugely successful band. On Sunday (July 15) Harry was forced to abandon his car during a visit home after fans rushed the vehicle in his Cheshire village.

The star managed to escape the throng of fans waiting outside his parent’s home though was reportedly annoyed at the intrusion.

Poor 1D they should be able to hangout without lots of rumours!


One Direction Celebrate Two Years Together

On July 23rd was 1D’s 2 year anniversary as a band! Its so amazing to see how far the boys have gone and see how sucessful they have become.

One Direction have marked their second anniversary in the music business by thanking their fans on Twitter.

It might be hard to remember life without the 1D lads, but on 23rd July 2010, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Liam Payne were formed during the Boot Camp phase of The X Factor.

To mark the occasion, the boys took to Twitter to thank Directioners for their support, with Niall tweeting: “Guys its been 2 years today since we were formed, its been incredible so far, its all down to you guys! Love you all soo much ! Thank you.”

Zayn said: “Wow 2years, what an amazing journey and its all down to you guys. Thank you, sending my love to you all #2yearsof1d.”

Louis wrote: “Can’t believe we have been together two years already. Thank you so much to anyone and everyone who have helped us along the way!”

Harry took to Twitter earlier this morning (24th July), to state: “Can’t believe yesterday was two years since we’ve been together. Thank you guys for everything you’ve done for us since then, We love you .x


Zayn Malik and Louis scare band mate Harry Styles with pregnancy prank

Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson had a laugh when they tricked their One Directionband mate Harry Styles into thinking he was delivering a baby on television.

Harry, 18, helped a heavily pregnantNickelodeon presenter with her breathing exercises and shouted: ‘Why is no one here? Can somebody help us?’ when she went into labour before interviewing the band.

But the presenter was actually an actress hired by the channel to trick 1D – with Zayn, 19, andLouis, 20, getting in on the act.

Harry wasn’t the only band member who was fooled by the set up.

Liam Payne, 18, phoned the woman’s husband, who also turned out to be an actor.

‘I was actually thinking this is going to be a great press story,’ Harry tells the Daily Star.

One Direction deliver a child!’


The boys wrap up their first ever North American tour

Last night was the last night that wrapped up the boys’ first North American tour. How amazing! Here’s an article I found explaining more about it.

One Direction wrapped their first headline tour of the U.S. last night with a show in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Niall Horan have spent much of 2012 here in the U.S. and Canada promoting their debut album Up All Night, and launched their first headlining tour in May after opening up for Big Time Rush on their Better With U Tour in February and March.

Joined by fellow UK superstar Olly Murs, who described the journey as “superb,” last night’s show not only wrapped up their U.S. tour but also completed the last leg of the Up All Night Tour. The boys enjoyed their final show with band member Niall Horan tweeting, “Wow ft,lauderdale! Great way to finish our 1st headline US tour! #upallnight tour is done! Long 6 months but amazing! Thank you all so much.”

But with the first headlining tour complete, what’s next for the chart-topping boyband? As reported earlier, the boys are working on their second album which they hope to have out by Christmas. And they hope to have the first single from that album out as soon as September. “We’ve got to make a decision for a single soon,” Niall Horan tells MTV News. “Because we have to get a single out towards September… We want to have the most control that we possibly can of everything that we do.”

The boys also have a few more shows to prepare for, the 2012 Olympics closing ceremonies, a sold out show at Madison Square Garden in New York City in December and then their 2013 World Tour which kicks off in London in February and stops by Pepsi Center in Denver in July 2013.


5 Things You Should Know About Louis

Is Louis Tomlinson the 1D guy who gave you the One Direction infection? If so, then get ready to smile because this entire post is dedicated to your man L.T. and helping you learn some cool facts about him.

5. Louis is the oldest member of One Direction and he was born on Christmas Eve! He’s 20-years-old. According to a lot of fan sites out there, he totally doesn’t like being the oldest dude in the band either!

4. Like Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and Harry Styles, Louis has really awesome taste in music. His favorite band is The Fray and he sang The Plain White T’s “Hey there Delilah” at his X-Factor audition (peep that below!). It’s also been said that his idol is singer Robbie Williams.

And he likes one of our favorites too…Ed Sheeran!

3. He only has sisters! They always say that the best type of guy to date is one with a sister…imagine dating him, he has four!

2. He’s got a bromance with band mate Harry Styles. In a recent interview with Hollywood Life, Louis explained that the two of them are pretty close and that sometimes fans dig too deep and think they’re in a romance!

1. And speaking of Harry, he’s the one who hooked Louis up with his model girlfriend Eleanor Calder.


The boys check out the ‘Despicable Me’ ride at Universal Orlando

Soon, visitors to Universal Orlando will become part of an evil army on the ‘Despicable Me Minion Mayhem’ ride, and five very well-known stars are among the first to join the ranks!

The boys of One Direction headed to Orlando recently, where they met the evil genius Gru, along with his three daughters: Margo, Edith, and Agnes. They also got early access to ‘Despicable Me Minion Mayhem,’ where they were transformed into tiny yellow minions that assisted Gru in becoming the greatest evil genius the world has ever seen. Don’t worry, though, he had them transformed back to their human form when they were done (whew!)

Fans of ‘Despicable Me’ will be able to check out ‘Minion Mayhem’ when it opens its doors to the masses on Tuesday, July 2. It’s one experience that you’ll want to check out for sure, and it’s only available at Universal Orlando!
