Watch One Direction Reveal Who's Hooked Up With A Fan & Other Naughty Secrets Playing Never Have I Ever With Ellen DeGeneres!
Are you really that surprised?
One Direction is stopping by Ellen on Wednesday to help promote their newest album, Made in the A.M.
While the British boys were on the talk show, Ellen DeGeneres didn't let them off easy as she played a very revealing game of "Never Have I Ever" and made sure they were all honest — we're looking at you, Harry Styles!
Surprisingly the boys were a bit tame, though we now know who's hooked up with a fan, who's made out with someone twice their age, and which pop star has used one of his bandmates toothbrushes!
But the fun didn't stop there as Ellen also talked to 1D about their upcoming hiatus, the awkwardness of Zayn Malik leaving the group and also had MASSIVE One Direction fan Rebel Wilson stop by to give the audience a surprise!
Ch-ch-check out all the AH-Mazing clips (below) and let us know how you like their new album!
Zayn Malik Opens Up About Why He REALLY Left One Direction, His Breakup With Perrie Edwards, & Whether Or Not He Actually Listens To 1D's Music In His First Major Interview Since Leaving The Group!
But on Tuesday, Fader published the 22-year-old's first major interview since quitting the boy band. And during the lengthy sit-down, the UK native decided to clear the air about a lot of the recent decisions in his life.
The solo artist explained that his choice to leave the guy group wasn't a malicious one.
Although he initially said he just wanted to be "normal," now the heartthrob has confessed that he just wasn't happy in the boy band, saying:
"There was never any room for me to experiment creatively in the band. If I would sing a hook or a verse slightly R&B, or slightly myself, it would always be recorded 50 times until there was a straight version that was pop, generic as f*ck, so they could use that version."
The X Factor alum also admitted that the songs he was recording didn't fit the style he enjoys, saying:
"I wasn't 100 percent behind the music. It wasn't me. It was music that was already given to us, and we were told this is what is going to sell to these people. As much as we were the biggest, most famous boy band in the world, it felt weird. We were told to be happy about something that we weren't happy about."
When the singer finally decided to leave, he revealed that it was somewhat of a spontaneous decision, explaining:
Is Zayn Malik's New Song A Total Jab At One Direction?! Get Your First Taste Of Befour And Decide For Yourself…
This doesn't seem like the best way to patch things up with your so-called friends…
While promoting his upcoming solo album with Fader, you can hear a bit of his new song Befour in the background — and it does sounds quite different than what we heard on Made in the A.M.
Our issue with the instrumental track, however, is that the name is clearly a jab at his former bandmates!
Either way you look at it, Befour is either telling Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, and Niall Horan to be happy as a foursome ("be four"), or he's cryptically referencing the last album he worked on before leaving the band, Four.
Do U think this is another 1D diss track, or just Zayn being a hipster??
Ch-ch-check out a preview of Zayn's new music via his Fader interview (below)!!!
Justin Bieber is NOT Sorry about this!
Well it looks like Bieberoni will come out on top!
According to Billboard, the 21-year-old's CD Purpose is looking to sell over 525,000 in its first week.
On the other hand, 1D's LP Made in the A.M. is projected to sell around 475,000.
However, before the What Do You Mean? hunk begins to pop champagne, there are still FOUR days left to determine who will be numero uno on the Billboard 200.
So really, anything can happen.
In happier news, BOTH records surpassed expectations! Experts believed each album would only sell around 300,000.
All is fair in love, war, and record sales!

Harry Styles isn't one to kiss and tell — but does he snog and sing??
But if anyone could get him to spill the beans, it's pal and Late, Late Show host James Corden!
At Saturday's Apple Music event The London Session, funny man delivered the most perfect-ly worded question to Harry, not-so-subtly hinting that the song's line "if you're looking for someone to write your breakup songs about" is about Tay-Tay.
Watch as Harry fails to hide his reaction (below)!
