Ruh roh!

Who DARE criticize the MILLIONS of dollars One Direction EARNED by seducing the young ladies (and gay boys) of the world with their vanilla tunes and cheeky attitudes?! LOLz!

Well, there IS one who dares…

U.K. Business Secretary Vince Cable is reportedly backpedalling on earlier not-so-nice statements regarding the boyband's $38 million 2012 paycheck!

Cable apparently said that 1D's excessive 2012 earnings were "grossly immoral" and that:

"I think it is mad that the members of the boy band New Direction made £5 million ($7 million) each last year. I think it is crazy that many of the footballers are routinely paid £10 million a year to play football."

And yes… he DID refer to the band as New Direction.

Hmmmm could this particular member of the U.K. government be a fan of Glee?! LOLzz!

Anyway, Mr. Cable later retracted his comments, stating:

"I don't want to attack One Direction, this is one particular group who are apparently very popular and very successful so I have nothing against them."

Oh dear, was someone chastised for seemingly not supporting an English (and Irish) National Treasure?! A treasure that we're sure brings in LOTS of revenue for the country?!

Ah well, it's not like the dude's statement would have deterred Directioners from listening to their fave musical quintet.

Keep raking in the dough, boys! Habitual tattooing and late nights out clubbing MUST get expensive!

    Good to see you like every other idiot missed the point he was making.

    well it is ridiculous how much they get paid, there are people who do more grueling work and can only afford necessities. Then you have the 'stars' who complain all the time because they are adored, the're live is a party/holiday. Most of them are ungrateful and greedy.But this is the society we live in…

    The point he was making was about business executive getting paid too much while it wasn't linked to their efficiency -which is why, when he realized his statement had been taken to be about 1D, he made a point to clear the air.

    while i also think they are overpaid, they are the ones putting asses in seats at arenas all over the world and that money has to go somewhere…we bitched when nsync was getting screwed by ron pearlman and now we are bitching because one direction is getting a fair cut of what they make…cant win for losing…

    they make that much because people like what they do and spend money on them. just because you may not like them doesnt mean they dont deserve what they make. plus, they work really hard for their money. its not all fun and games. also, one direction and footballers make a lot of people happy. but i guess thats not worth anything…
