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.
