One Direction To Simon Cowell: Cough Up The Cash!

| Filed under: Music MinuteSimon CowellBusiness BlitzOne Direction

One Direction Salary Dispute

Uh oh!

Are the boys of One Direction getting a bit too big for their britches???

Sounds like Niall, Louis, Harry, Zayn and Liam aren’t too happy with the salary they’ve been getting from boss Simon Cowell…even AFTER an over $2 million bonus!

Group member Niall said:

“Simon Cowell is tight. That’s why he’s so successful – he’s able to keep his money to himself. We’re paid in jelly beans.”

So…are those the yummy popcorn-flavored jelly beans or more of the vomit-flavored Harry Potter kind? Ha!

While Niall might have been joking then, there does seem to be some truth to their pay woes! Reportedly, the guys want to start to have a hand in the songwriting process, which would boost their bucks!

Taking some notes from The Beatles, we see?

1D’s Liam Payne says:

“We did watch The Beatles’ movie A Hard Day’s Night recently and it was funny to see things they did that are similar to us.”

One Direction definitely brings the girls to hysterics, like the Fab Four — but don’t tell that to Sir Paul! LOLz.

We’re glad they are brushing up on their music history but just hope they remember it's not all about the money!!

Hey, every great band has got to start somewhere!

Only time will tell if One Direction lives up to the legends, but they are off to a fantastic start!

    my neighbor's half-sister makes $89/hour on the internet. She has been fired for 7 months but last month her pay was $15035 just working on the internet for a few hours. Read more on this site..MakeCash2.com

    Cocky little things, aren't they? I think my favourite naive line is: "We did watch The Beatles’ movie A Hard Day’s Night recently and it was funny to see things they did that are similar to us". Correction: YOU are doing things similar to the Beatles. They did it first. One Direction may want to reel in their pubescent egos or they'll have to change their name to One Hit Wonder.

    Are you KIDDING ME! Those comments were taken so out of context, I can hardly believe it. First off, Niall said this after they were asked by an interviewer how much money they were making, and he said this in an effort to remain humble. They never, ever talk about how much they are making. It's because they really don't care. That's not why they are doing what they are doing. Secondly, Liam wasn't comparing their success to that of the Beatles. He was simply saying that both bands goof off and have a brotherly relationship with each other. If you actually listen to said interview you would hear Louis say that it's almost insulting to them the comparisons they get to the Beatles because they don't believe that they are even worthy of being in the same sentence as the Beatles. You just so missed the mark. You call this journalist? These are five nice, HUMBLE boys who are just trying to enjoy their lives and you are turning people against them because you don't know how to do your freaking job.

    They've become such insufferable brats. Grow up boys, your careers won't last if you keep acting like dicks.

    Re: beccarooroo – How impressive of an insult. I'm stunned.

    lol they should not even be mentioned in the same breathe/sentence as the Beatles…



  8. 8

    please don't compare these 15-minuters to The Beatles. I'm not really a Beatles fan, but that's just insulting. The boy band fad died over a decade ago. Sorry, One Direction, suit up for a quick stint at "stardom."

    Re: Alivia – You do realise that Perez just copies and pastes his stories from other websites don't you? Read to see this story. It has been up two days longer than what Perez has had it on his site. Yeah that is poor journalism, but 1) No one uses 'journalism' and 'Perez' in the same sentence unless that sentence is "No one uses journalism and Perez in the same sentence". And 2) Go blame The Sun for saying these things that have got you so fired up.

    The beatles? What a farce! This group of brats makes NKOTB look like the Beatles. These guys should have tried out for glee. All they do is pose and sing badly.

    Alivia, you are right on. Those were my exact thoughts when I was reading this article… They have always wanted to be a part of the writing process, they helped write 3 songs on the current album. They were young and started off on the X Factor so of course they wouldn't be allowed as much writing time as they could have had… Both of these statements were said in different interviews and if you watched them you'd know they were joking around. They don't feel like they could ever be as good as the beatles and don't like being compared because they don't think they are anywhere near the beatles league…AND canI please mention Zayn recently said in an interview the most expensive thing he bought was a bag or a watch! And Niall bought his mom a CAR and they spoiled their families on Christmas when they were paid on the X Factor. PEREZ please correct this article! you are so giving off the wrong impression and giving these sad people something negative to feed on!

    i cant stand these little shit heads, it just shows you how stupid american teenage girls are, every time a new group of singing gays come out, all the teen girls go bat shit and they actual think these boys are singing to them, it makes me sick to see how delusional people can be, and alls you hear about now days when you turn on the tv is about one direction and clips of dumb girls gushing about how amazing they are and they just love them so much, Que the puking sounds now, that one douche with the the foot ball helmet hair look ridiculous man, i think we should take these idiots, Justin beavers, and all the other losers who are adored by the ignorant population of tween girls, and put them on a desert island and let them rot!!!

    that's not even what happened. i personally watched that fucking interview. goddamn you. you make up lies. i fucking saw what they said. they said that simon keeps his money because he doesn't just spend it on anything. then when they were asked how much money they had they responded with, "we get paid in jelly beans." as they are modest about their pay and do not like to talk about it. fuck you perez. don't read everything that you see, guys. perez just wants a fucking story to tell so he twists their words.

    Re: adam – it's actually quite ironic considering you would be the ignorant one in this situation. you've never seen that interview. i have seen that interview. what they said was twisted and taken out of context. they were being modest about their pay, as they don't like speaking about it. they said that simon doesn't just spend his money on anything. they were asked if they thought simon was in it for the money or for them. they responded that they thought of course simon was in it for the money in a way because it is his job, but they also felt that he was in it for them because he has been a great mentor along the way. they were asked how much they got paid and responded, "we get paid in jellybeans." they were kidding. they don't like talking about their money. they're not in it for that. you're just going off something that you've read. you're just a typical guy who hates famous singers because they have what you could never have. they have millions of adoring fans(girls&boys), money, and get to travel the world. you're a jealous fuck and you are insignificant in the scheme of life. now go sit in the corner and think about what you've said. you're the idiot that believes everything you read. :) xoxoxo

    I agree, this is SO taken out of context. Whenever the boys are asked about about money, they just make jokes like that, to lighten up the mood. In another interview they said they get payed with chocolate covered peanuts! Ofc they don't want to talk about money, it would make them look cocky, which they are not. Get your facts right!
    Besides, calling them gay is so stupid, first of all, I don't find the word GAY assaulting so using it as an assaulting word doesn't really work. If they were gay, so what?! And second of all, they've pretty much got the women of the world drooling over them, I think that's more then you can say, adam!
