The boys of pop music group One Direction are on the cover of the November issue of Seventeen Magazine, which makes this their first major US magazine cover.
Inside their interview with the mag, which hits newsstands on October 16th, superstar band opens up in one of their most revealing interviews to date talking about girlfriends, gossip, bullying and their most embarrassing moments.
The group’s new album Take Me Home hits stores November 13th. Check out some highlights below from their interview.
Harry – On being seen as the ‘girl-crazy’ one: “I wouldn’t say girl-crazy, because that makes me sound like a bit of a womanizer. That isn’t really me. But I am quite flirty-maybe too flirty. I’m an 18-year-old boy, and I like to have fun!”
Niall – On what he likes about Demi Lovato: “The nice thing about Demi is, once you know her, she’s really, really beautiful. We became good friends. It’s so crazy that she can be so honest about everything she’s gone through. She has a fantastic attitude. If I ever needed anything or needed to talk to anybody, I think Demi would be the person to talk to.
Liam – On dealing with bullies when he was young: “I was bullied by a few people who were much older than me. I went to camp to learn boxing. I was 12, and my coach was 24. I felt like if I could fight him, I could stand up to anyone.”
Zayn – On his rep as the ‘bad boy’ of the band: “I like to use the term misunderstood. But I am a bit of a bad boy. I have tattoos and I mess around. That’s part of my image, so it’s cool.”
Louis – On the most embarrassing thing that has happened to him since One Direction became so big: “One time Harry and I were skiing together when a girl and a guy came up with a camera. We assumed they were going to ask us for a photo, so we stood there with our arms around each other, posing. They said, “No, we want you to take a photo of us!” It was embarrassing!
