One Direction displayed some AH-Mazing cloning effects in their newly premiered video for You & I, but now, it's being called a total rip off!!
Let us explain, faithful Directioners…
Australian production company OhYeahWow noted that the Ben Winston-directed vid looked a lot like another clip made for Australian band Clubfeet.
In a recent statement, the company claimed its similarities, while staying on 1D's good side by shedding compliments left and right:
"Late Friday night whilst we were busy observing the good traditions of the public holiday, something very suspicious was brought to our attention. It seems that the chaps of One Direction have taken it upon themselves to regurgitate our original concept, as seen in our award-winning clip for Clubfeet’s Everything You Wanted. Don’t get us wrong, we here at Oh Yeah Wow are big One Direction fans and are envious of their ability to maintain flawless hairdos. To be crystal clear, OYW has nothing against creative evolution. Artists constantly reinterpret other works that have inspired them and we’re fine with people taking a technique and using it to create something new…The wider problem is, that plagiarism and copycatting is becoming increasingly common and acceptable."
The band hasn't addressed the accusations of plagiarism—but with the internet a flutter, we're sure they'll have to soon!
Ch-ch-check out both videos and decide whether 1D ripped off the original idea…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Can Niall Horan ever get enough soccer? Based on what we're seeing, we're guessing the answer is NO!!
In fact, the One Direction cutie made his way to Vicente Calderon Stadium in Madrid, Spain to get his futbol fill and watch Atletico de Madrid take on Chelsea!
We're not exactly sure how the Los Angeles Lakers baseball cap comes into play, but we'll let it slide! LOLz!
Nialler had a perfect seat to
ZOMG! Is this the second coming of 50 Shades of Grey!?!?
UTA has signed the rights to the online One Direction fan-fiction phenomenon titled After written by Anna Todd, a "first-time writer" from central Texas.
The fan-fiction is a three-book series on the online community Wattpad, which is updated chapter by chapter and has an absolutely RABID following of 1D fans.
So, it IS the next 50 Shades of Grey?
Well, YES, except
ZOMG Directioners!! Your favorite British cuties are back and they're getting so innovative with their music videos!
For weeks and days One Direction has been teasing the release of their next single and ballad, You & I and it is here for your viewing pleasure!
All those smoldering looks and wind blowing in their hair. SWOON.
What we would give to be the wind flowing through Harry's hair, that trench coat on Zayn's body, that pink ball Niall and Louis play with! And Liam!!
We just can't.
Ch-ch-check out the music video for it…AFTER THE JUMP!
WOW! We bet all the One Direction fans are going CRAZY over this!!
One lucky fan, Ellie Fitzgerald-Payne, got an incredible surprise when she got a voicemail from her step-dad while he was in London!
Because it wasn't actually from her dad!
Nope! The voicemail was from none other than Harry Styles!
Ellie recorded her and a friend listening to it (and adorably fan-girling), then posted the video to her Instagram so she could share her good fortune with the world!
But how in the world did she manage this?!?!
YES! DJ Payne is in the house!
Who knew Liam Payne had such AH-Mazing mixing skillz?!
The British lad took One Direction's newest single, You & I, gave it a little remix, and debuted a snippet of the track for the world to hear and it sounds like it's full of eargasms!
Directioners have a chance to remix their own version on 1D's SoundCloud page and Liam will personally choose his favorite tracks to release to the public every week!
Um, how AMAZEBALLS is that?!
The You & I official music video will be released April 18th and the full remixed version of You & I will be out on May 25th along with a number of other remixes on their digital EP!
Click play (above) to hear You & I get delightfully remixed by Mr. Payne and CLICK HERE to remix the ballad!
Whoa, is this orange enough for you?!
It's so obvious Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards can't get enough of each other! Just look at the soon-to-be married lovebirds!!
Although babies may not be on the horizon for the duo, according to Perrie's Little Mix bandmates, there's one thing that we can always anticipate from the One Direction cutie and his fiancé:
Selfies, of course!!
Zayn shared their photo (above) on Instagram and added these words to it:
what songs are you looking forward to seeing live on the where we are tour? :D
That caption literally had nothing to do with the adorable neon-esque photo of the two!
But enjoy it while you can, Zerrie lovas! These cute selfies only come once every blue moon!
