Louis was spotted going out & about in West Hollywood with Zayn & Niall. They stopped for a bite to eat and went shopping at Urban Outfitters as well. I’ve added over 50 images of Louis to the gallery. (:
One Direction are the cover stars for the December/January issue of Teen Vogue!! If you are subscribed or are going to buy the magazine, you get a random pick of one of the 5 boys, (either Louis, Niall, Zayn, Harry, or Liam) as your cover boy! I am actually subscribed to Teen Vogue so I hope I get Louis’ cover.
As a general rule, once an action figure has been created in your likeness and shipped to toy stores around the globe, any claims of regular-guy status pretty much go straight out the window. But the five members of the British boy band One Direction—that’s, from left, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, and Harry Styles, for those of you who were literally raised by wolves—tend to insist, quite convincingly, that they’re still the same lads who first auditioned for the U.K. version of The X Factor more than two years back. “What we do isn’t normal,” allows Niall, nineteen, in an interview conducted on the London set of the group’s Teen Vogue cover shoot. “But we’re normal.”
Harry, eighteen, agrees. “One time, a girl dropped her phone in my pocket,” he recalls, “and I found it and was like, ‘There you go.’ And she said, ‘If you’d had my phone, you’d have had to meet up with me to give it back.'” Hearing this story, one can’t help but be struck by the girl’s optimism—and cheek—but Harry seems more astounded by the idea that she deemed him worthy of such a ploy in the first place. “It’s nice to have people go to these lengths for you,” he says, “but sometimes it’s hard to understand, because we’re just guys. We’re guys who would be at your school, who got this amazing opportunity.”
Of course, it’s true. And thanks to the fact that the band was formed while cameras were rolling, anyone who wants to see what their favorite member of 1D was like pre-fame is able to do so simply by entering a few keywords on YouTube. (We recommend Zayn refuses to dance at boot camp for a combination of shyness, stage fright, and stubbornness that’s almost as crush-inspiring, at least in retrospect, as any of the slick videos that came afterward.)
Now, the guys are hard at work promoting their just-released second album, Take Me Home, and prepping for a world tour that begins in February. “We’re playing the Staples Center in Los Angeles,” announces Zayn, nineteen. “One of the first concerts I saw in America was there—Britney Spears—and I remember thinking, ‘This place is massive.’ Now we’re going to be playing there? I can’t wait.” Their schedule is intense enough that Liam, nineteen, has to think long and hard to come up with a single thing about his life that hasn’t changed in the past year. “I still put on underwear every day,” he offers, at last. But according to Louis, who is about to turn 21, the boys continue to have plenty of time to be boys, so to speak. “There’s quite a lot of waiting around,” he explains, “so we often find the need to be a little mischievous. Like today, for example, Liam and I managed to get on the roof of [the photo studio], and we were hiding from everyone. We just try to keep ourselves entertained.” Luckily, they’re doing a pretty good job of keeping everyone else entertained while they’re at it.
One Direction were voted Ultimate Men at this year’s Cosmopolitan VO5 Ultimate Women Awards. Check this video out giving you total behind-the-scenes access
One Direction was on the ‘El Hormiguero’ Show yesterday in Spain, and I’ve added over 60+ photos to the gallery! They all got into a glitter fight, which is pretty funny — make sure to check out the funny pics below! The full show is below as well for you to watch. Unfortunately the interview is in Spanish so you can’t understand all of it but it’s still pretty funny to watch. The quality isn’t that well either but when a better version comes up I will definately make sure to post it.
Louis played at a Charity football (soccer) game earlier today in Doncaster at the Keepmoat Stadium. It looks like Zayn, Niall, Liam, & Eleanor were all there to support them! What great friends. It seems like Louis did great, scoring the winning goal for his team, and winning the game 2-1. Awesome!! Congrats Louis. I’ve added some images below:
Louis gave a mini speech at the game as well. You can watch the video below, but it is quite hard to hear what he is saying because everyone is screaming and excited, but you can hear a little bit of it, so if you would like, watch below!
