Our minds are BLOWN!

We knew One Direction was the baddest thing since beer-battered cod, but we had no idea they were worth so much money!!!!

Number-munching economists who also dabble in boy bands — that's a Venn diagram we'd love to see — suggest the boys are on pace generate over a billion dollars in revenue by the end of their 2014 tour!!!

You read that right: 1D is on track to be worth $1B!

Wowzers!! Liam Payne? More like Liam Payin'-for-the-whole-tab-’cause-he-can-afford-it, LOLz!!

The fab five is totes adorable and supremely talented, but how are they making more cheese than Switzerland?!

First and foremost, they're putting asses in seats — over half of the band's revenue comes from selling concert tickets!

Record sales are helping, too! The boys are pushing out chart-topping hits faster than old people push out prune juice!

And there is also $$$ from movie tickets, DVDs, & other misc merch!

From third place on the X Factor to first place in our hearts and a billion buckaroonies, 1D has come a long way in a few short years!!!

It's absolutely AH-Mazing!

    Hopefully Simon Cowell is a little more fair than that guy that paid NSYNC and BSB 50k when they made a billion.

    I'm not surprised especially since I just brought $25 worth of merchandise for my nieces birthday presents. They are good but with all new stars, time will tell if they really are stars OR teenage girls hormones gorn crazy driving sales up.

    Congrats to them for coming this far, but they're hardly the first billion dollar boyband. Perhaps the first western one, but bands in Asia such as TVXQ (South Korean), EXILE (Japanese), and Arashi (Japanese) have made over a billion dollars a while ago. They're albums are over $50, so its not really surprising that they have passed the billion dollar mark a while ago. So, while One Direction might have been the first to make $1 Billion in the western world, they are not the first boyband to make $1 Billion in the world.
