1D The New British Invasion

The new British Invasion is being lead full force by the X-Factor finalists One Direction. The group was formed when five finalists failed to progress to the competition round of Simon Cowell’s X-Factor. The five boys are: Niall Haron, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson. They have taken the world by storm and according to some uncredited sources there have been issues between the power pop icon Justin Bieber and the five-some from the British Isles. The Hollywood Gossip machine of course has taken the uncredited sources and ran with them creating buzz where it might not normally be.

The story is that Niall Haron of One Direction was flirting with Selena Gomez at the Kid’s choice awards and she was receptive to his charms. Meanwhile Justin was feeling threatened and later warned Niall to stay away from Selena. Publicists say this is false. On the other end of the spectrum, sources have claimed One Direction and Justin Bieber are collaborating, but according to publicists, this is also false. These rumors stem from a tweet by members of One Direction about being with Bieber in the studio. These were only meant as One Direction was visiting Justin as he recorded the Believe album.

The truth is, Justin Bieber may encounter One Direction in Europe as the band begins their world tour in 2013. Bieber and One Direction will be hitting the same stages just days apart, that is until Bieber heads out to conquer the rest of Europe while One Direction takes time to plant more seeds in their homeland. Bieber’s tour ends in May of 2013 while One Direction continues on until October of 2013. There is a notable stop for One Direction in Toronto, not far from Justin Bieber’s home in Ontario. No one knows what could happen before, during or after these shows.

Our New Girl From Denmark Lisa Kastleen

Good morning dear people. Today is the day come when I start my lifestyle change. Which means Herbalife shake, lots of protein, healthy snacks, and goodness knows what. My goal is actually quite affordable, 15 pounds in 4 months, so there is no need to stress. I think enough, how on earth can woman man start, in the middle of the Christmas season. Truth is, it is still not a big "Candy, candy, food" enjoy. No, the problem is my coke ... As in all sit and enjoy delicious breakfast, think of me folks .. Think of me.

One Direction Madison Square Gardens

British boy band One Direction made their return stateside last night for a sold out show at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. But the real noise in the arena came from the thousands of screaming girls there to empty their lungs at each and every opportunity. (At one point a teen behind me screamed her brains out and then shrieked, “I don’t even know why I’m screaming!!!” I didn’t know either. One Direction was not scheduled to take the stage for another hour.)
When the band finally did appear and open with “Up All Night”— after an actual countdown clock complete with smoke, strobe lights, and video images of the boys frolicking in a tent — madness ensued. In between crooning favorites like “Live While We’re Young,” “Tell Me a Lie,” and “One Thing,” the band repeatedly expressed wonder at the venue and thanked fans for their support (both vocal and financial). “This place is bloody huge!” yelled Harry Styles. “This is absolutely crazy for everyone to join us from around the world.”  Zayn Malik later added that, “I have never been so overwhelmed in my entire life.”
While the band stuck to a pretty strict script — sing, smile, run up and down giant ramps, thank fans, repeat — the members did take part in one bit of improvisation as they answered requests tweeted in by members of the audience. “What would you do if a chicken attacked you? Please demonstrate,” read one. This caused Liam Payne to run around the stage impersonating a chicken while confronting his somewhat amused and confused bandmates. That’s something you don’t see at a concert every day. At least I don’t. Other requests had the Brits impersonating New York City cab drivers (Zayn needs to work on his impression), and taking part in a contest to see who could jump the highest (Niall Horan won).
Of course, the biggest shrieks came with the following tweet: “If you were an animal, what would you be and what would your mating call sound like?” (I will refrain from reenacting One Direction mating calls for fear that our traffic server will explode.) After that tomfoolery was over, and after opening act Ed Sheeran joined the group to sing back-up on “Little Things”, and after the boys threw out autographs and jumped from the stage to get closer to the audience, the show finally closed with confetti as One Direction belted out their biggest hit, “What Makes You Beautiful.” Niall called the evening “the best night of our lives.” No doubt thousands of tween and teen girls — my daughter among them — agreed completely.
