The One Direction fans are certainly dedicated. Close to 18,000 fans gathered in NYC to catch a glimpse of 1D sing their hearts out on Today Friday morning. "It seems to me this is the biggest crowd we've ever had," Al Roker said on the NBC show.
One Direction is currently promoting their new film This is Us, which opens August 30. "We always say this: There's only so much you can get across in a 140-character tweet," Niall Horan said on Today when asked why they agreed to do the movie. "We wanted to really give behind-the-scenes access ... to what it's like for us. What it's like for our families, and really what these guys [the fans] have done, really, in three years."
"You're going to see a lot more of what we're like when we interact with each other behind the scenes," Harry Styles also added. "A nice insight. It's a great film."
Styles also opened up recently about his relationship with ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift, telling Us Weekly that he would be okay with the "22" singer writing about their breakup. "It would be hypocritical for me to say she couldn't do it because everybody writes songs based on personal experience," Styles said. "I can't say I'd have dated someone less famous to avoid it."
Styles seemed to have a good outlook on whatever the song may be adding, "At least she's a great songwriter!" Styles is positive about whatever his next relationship may be, as well saying it doesn't matter if they're a celebrity or not. "I think it's people. You like people for who they are, so I couldn't say I want to date someone less famous because of the hassle. You like who you like."
Someone band mate Zayn Malik likes is his now fiancée Perrie Edwards. "It's official. I'm over the moon. They are really in love," Edwards' mom, Debbie, spilled. "It's true. They got engaged on Sunday and it was absolutely lovely and, you know, I feel — it's wonderful because Zayn's absolutely gorgeous and Perrie loves him to pieces and it's just perfect!" Malik confirmed he was engaged on Today. "There's not much to say," Malik said on the show about the proposal. "We're engaged. We're really happy."
Congrats to all of One Direction!
