@ R6 I can't believe you opened it up, read it, and actually responded to it. Loser.
I'm glad I'm around their age so it's not considered pedo, that being said, Louis Tomlinson has a phat ass.
phAT ASS, IS HE WILLING TO SHARE? WOO HOO HOO HOO HOO.....
Zayne is hot
You smellt it, u delt it
Someone should probably explain the reason for the creation of the General 1d thread. We started with the Ass of Louis Tomlinson threads which started out admiring Louis and his assets but then pretty much ended up being an argument as to whether Harry is with Louis or Grimmy or someone unknown to us. For some reason those threads ceased to exist after Part 9, so we moved to the Harry/Nick Grimshaw thread(s). After awhile, they ONLY wanted to talk about Harry/Grimmy and complained whenever someone else from 1D was mentioned (especially Louis). And thus the General 1D thread was created so that the Harry/Grimmy shippers can continue their descent into madness without being interrupted by those of us trying to bring an element of objectivity to the discussion.
Ok, so...moving on...
Valley Girl fer shur fer shur
Louise is my favorite.
Relevant to our interests (and the now defunct Ass of Louis Tomlinson thread):
I don't get the appeal of these kids. They are so darn BLAND and even "vintage" boys bands like New Kids, Take That and Backstreet Boys had an edge in comparison.
@ R16 thank you for that gif, Louis is my fave too
@ R17 yes I agree, Louis definitely pings. I want to believe him when he says he and his gf are "real" but I'm sorry I just don't. He's more affectionate to the other boys in the group than he is with her. I think he & Harry still have something going on.
I want to know, is anyone gay in this group? Or rumoured to be?
Out of all of them, Louis pings, and Zayne pings to me too. The one who seems straight is Liam.
Zayn is not gay, don't you see how he looks at girls? Louis I don't know, he always had girlfriends, but he also seems to be the least interested in girls, almost bored.
Harry is rumoured to have a thing going on with an 28 years old DJ, Nick Grimshaw.
Louise is the handsomest and the oldest, we should be discussing him!
So Louis was living together for a year with his bandmate Harry and some fans think they are not just friends, but lovers.
wow why are we bringing all the tinhatting into this thread?
Since no one here knows them personally, it's all speculation and tinhatting.
R41 and R42 isn't speculation and tinhatting a staple here at DL?
So tell us, what about 1D would you like to discuss then? Their hairstyles?
The new album isn't as good as the first one. None of the tracks seem to be as catchy like 'what makes you beautiful'. Fells very rushed like the producers want to cash in before the band is no longer popular.
let's gang bang
i think the new album is much better
I'm not interested in their hairstyle, I want to know if they are shagging each other.
Band?! U2 is band.
I'm with you R48
Love this article re: Harry & Louis, how can people think there was never anything sexual between them? Link below, it's worth a read, if anything for a glance at Louis' massive hard-on. Do you think its real or does he have something stuffed in his pants?
Love the new album and it's ode to the 90's and early 00's pop.
Highlight are I Would, Rock Me, C'Mon C'mon, Summer Love and They Don't About Us.
Usually I'll listen to pop music on spotify just to keep up with musical trends, but I really can't get into the British boy-bander thing.
Louis and Harry are definitely more than friends. The way Louis reacts when Harry comes a little bit too close says everything. He loves it, and his body loves it even more. Louis is not interested in women, I think.
I just want to know whether Louis is in a real relationship with his girlfriend or not. He is so obsessed with the fact he has a girlfriend, it's not healthy anymore. He talks about her in every interview, the whole time. And she is always around the boys. Even when Louis is three days away from home, she will come and visit him in Sweden or Paris. We're talking about two teenagers being in a relationship, but they act as if they are married and having children.
They where great on XFactor. Of course Simon pimped them out twice on the show to help with ratings.
I would have picked the exact same 5 songs as highlights, r51. (Shame that the next single is going to be "Kiss You", which I find rather meh.)
They debuted at no.1 again in the states with over half a million albums sold. The best act to come out of X-Factor ever!
(Leona Lewis is/was a one hit wonder)
Let's try and get some 1D discussion going again! I'd love this to be a thread for fun but rational discussion, so we'll give it a go and see what happens.
Any and all general 1D thoughts welcome. I have to pop away now but I'll be back later to see if anyone's up for a chat!
Need Louis nudes. Stat.
Their recent cover of Blondie's hit, "One Way or Another" is doing great on iTunes.
I'm glad Zayn decided to finally take a bath. He looked good at the Brit Awards. (He still needs to gain more weight).
I think One D should do a rousing cover of The Isley Brothers' "It's Your Thing."
If not that one, then "Voyage to Atlantis."
They'd have great harmonies.
Where's Larry Believer? He is missed.
First of all, LOL at R58, I agree!
So I am just puzzled about this Nick/Harry situation. As I said over on the Gr1mshaw thread, I have always felt that N/H friendship was encouraged by Harry's "people" for several reasons. To me, H/N were a mix of friends, business, and friends-with-benefits. I agree that they have spent a lot of time together but I'm just not convinced that they are a romantic couple. Something doesn't sit right with all of this, but I can't quite put my finger on it. I also am not convinced that things really ever ended with Harry & Louis.
Harry & Nick both have careers to worry about, people to answer to. Them going rogue with an open homosexual relationship doesn't seem likely. Yet their behavior leads people to believe that they are in one. The question is, how far is too far? Harry's fans are mostly teenagers but they aren't stupid. I imagine 1D's people, loosening their collars while sweating bullets, popping Ativan and Valium and chasing with shots of whiskey... counting down the minutes until they can shove Harry on a plane and whisk him off on tour haha...
If H&N really are a romantic couple, one would think that they would have just spent time together quietly until Harry went off on tour. SOMEONE wants everyone to see them together and believe they are "together". But who? Harry? Nick? Both? Someone else altogether?
I am a Larry Shipper.
I'm not as sold on Larry as some, but it never was about pinning people down and outing them.
I just like the idea of Louis, who seems gayer than a two dollar bill, and Harry with his deep voice and jealous streak. It is sort of life affirming to see that on display, disregarding heteronormativity.
Ummm... Liam wearing a dragonfly brooch at the Brit awards? Is there some special meaning I'm not aware of?
Liam's cardigan is McQueen. The dragonfly is embroidered.
Love the "One Way or Another" charity vid.
I'm going to make a pass at Louis if I ever get the chance. He is older than me, but I think it could work.
What do you think about all this Lilo is the new Larry" thing going on? I mean Louis and Liam are obvious good friends, but you really think Louis values his friendship above the one he share(d) with Harry? Because these days Harry and Louis seems to be no more than coworkers (they never, never are seen together, never in the same place, different friends etc). This confuse me so much because they used to have a sweet frienship. What would have happened between them to made them break their friendship (must be something really big).
I'm not a real participant in the fandom, I mostly just follow the threads here. So I had no idea about Lilo being the new Larry.
I think it's a good pairing, not necessarily a sexual one IRL. I do think that some descriptions of Louis and Harry's present state are indicative of a breakup or something equally big (as you say, r69). But who can know this for sure? I think that a pitfall of the fandom is that because Louis seems gay, his friendships are colored with that in mind.
I adore Liam and Louis together. They are so mischevious and make each other happy all the time. Plus they are into sports, so that may be another common thing. And I really think Liam has a little man-crush on Louis. About Harry and Louis, they distanced from each other in the last year. Harry loves the high-life of London, likes to hang-out with celebrities while Louis is more family oriented, private and non-pretentious. Plus I think Harry is having an affair with Grimmy; it is more and more likely these two are in some kind of relationship (even the papers are speculating about them).
Niall is becoming my bias. Maybe it's because he is the only one that is single.
Dey eat da poo-poo. One Direction is just another New Kids on the Cock or N*Sick. Minimal talent. Just a bunch of boys who look like 11 year old lesbians, who harmonize and dance a little to appeal to 9-12 year old girls and 10-16 year old gay boys. I keep up on modern music and like a lot of it, but these boys suck as bad as that little Bieber shit. There is not one boy in One Direction that would even classify as a cute "twink". They are too skinny and too average. To each their own, but they'll be forgotten (like Hanson) in five years.
R64, yes Harry and Louis' earlier dynamic was really interesting and appealing. However, I really don't think we're likely to see anything like that on stage or in interviews ever again and I don't know how fans are going to react to that.
MOC - I remember you saying that you thought Harry was encouraged to hang out with Nick. I kinda agree to the extent that I think he was encouraged by those who cared for him to create a social group outside of 1D, like the other lads had, for his own benefit. I don't think Harry and Nick's relationship was orchestrated or played up for publicity or is anything other than genuine.
My feelings on Harry and Louis are that it was a very intense friendship and if we're going on generally accepted indications of a crush, I think it's fair to say Harry possibly had romantic feeling for Louis.
Perhaps Louis was just having fun, thinking it was all a bromance, played up for the cameras and then realised it had spiralled out of his control, into the hands of the fans and was having negative consequences for those he loved.
I think he pulled away from Harry fairly abruptly and focused his energies on Liam. I've always said I think he likes control over the people around him and I feel there's a definite element of that in his friendship with Liam.
What I think is likely is that without living or socialising with Louis and his family and friends being up north, Harry didn't have any everyday friends in London and as many who know him have commented, he doesn't like to be alone. So creating another intense friendship, this time with Grimmy isn't so bizarre to me. They both seemed equally as enamoured of each other.
That's one of the things that gives me pause with Harry/Nick. Harry had a super intense friendship with Louis and appears quite clingy. So when he spent all his time in the summer with Nick it was fairly similar to me, in how he was previously with Louis. And I think people either ignore that or aren't aware of how intense Harry can be when he likes someone.
That's particularly true for those approaching the Harry/Nick situation from a Nick angle who can't quite understand why Harry would have spent all his evenings and sleeping over at Nicks, thinking the only explanation must be they were a couple. That's not to say they weren't/aren't a couple, just that hooking up isn't the only valid explanation for that intensity of interaction.
I don't understand what's going on with Harry and Nick right now. They appear to be pushing the envelop, as do others when talking about them. I feel it's likely they're in a relationship, but even if they're not they've cemented the idea of how close they are and how much they enjoy spending time together into people's heads. That will go a long way to downplaying what seems to be Nick's plan of turning up occasionally on the 1D tour.
That got long and rambly. Ah well, the norm for me.
I think Harry and Louis were together, it's obviously over now as they seem to hardly speak to each other.
Also Louis over reaction to the Larry rumours, all celebs get gay rumours but just laugh them off. Something about his relationship with his girlfriend doesn't seem right either.
It looks as though Harry is distancing himself and will probably leave the band soon.
Yes R75, I too think Harry has distanced himself. Publicly he's crafted a independent and more mature persona and I feel like he carries that over into his 1D appearances. I get the impression he does what's required of him but there's no messing around with the other lads, he stands quietly apart and often looks detached.
I don't think he'll cut and run, but I can't see 1D going on past 2014 and I think he's itching to get out. He'll probably have a huge choice of offers in a variety of areas, not just musically.
I used to think Louis and Harry had a big fight or something. They were never spotted together anymore and they were ignoring each other during interviews and tv shows.
But then I realised that the timing was a bit fishy. It was after touring in the US, where the gay rumours became an issue. Louis said before it happened that the gay rumours 'affect the way me and Harry behave around each other'. After that, they started to act really weird. Also, the many articles about Eleanor and Louis hanging out this summer, in combination with the tweets of Louis. It seems like a big PR-thing to me. I think they want to make it seem like Harry and Louis aren't really close anymore, to kill the gay rumours.
Watch this video for example. It's from a private gig in Paris from November 2012. It seems that they are still in the same (b)romance as they used to be. They are just trying to hide it now. For whatever reason.
Anatomy of a One Direction thread.
1 or 2 teen/twenty somethings waxing lyrical about their fave boy band. And a sea of 40/50/60 year olds lusting after what are essentially children from their age perspective. These threads should be deleted.
And one mom of one of the teens waxing lyrical who needs to go back to the kitchen and make her husband a FUCKING SANDWICH! NOW!!!
They just butchered Blondie's classic. I accepted them, even liked them, before but now they have crossed the line.
A Larry believer if you will.
Any idea what happened to N and H part 11
Appears to have been closed? Perhaps someone can open a new one!
Yeah, it's really strange because it hasn't been deleted, just closed.
Guess a rule was broken?
Is Harry considered the lead singer of the group? "One Way or Another" sounds to me like he's doing almost all of the singing.
Have you watched the video r89? He's not. Liam used to be the "unofficial" leader, but Harry is the most popular with media. Niall is probably the most popular with the young fans. His merchandise sells out the fastest.
Niall's the actual gay one, right?
Niall's not gay. I still think Louis is the gay one, girlfriend or not. I change my mind about Harry every other day.
Is there a rule about mentioning branded items on these threads?
I'm wondering if that is why the last two NG threads have been closed?! They both contained lengthy conversations about a certain wax jacket brand.
If that was the reason, LG, that would be truly hilarious. You could well be right though, because I can't honestly think of a reason to close the threads.
How can Niall not be gay, R92? Did you see him in the "One Way or Another" video?
Thank God you're all here!
I thought the other one may have gone because of the discussion about sub/dom, and some vague idea about legal ages in the states. (This forum is American in origin isn't it?)
They same discussion came up in the last thread too.
Could just be the branding thing too.
isis - Actually the age issue might be it, I had forgotten the different ages' of consent between the two countries. Having said that to be closed down twice over waxed jackets would be rather funny!
153, it does seem ridiculous but you could see how some people could use these threads to advertise? Perhaps there is some sort of blanket ban?
Those discussions were the only ones that set those threads apart from all our others?
Yeah, LG, everything else seems to have come up before or is similar to stuff that has...
LG - Yes, I am sure it is, we have covered the other subject before a few threads back. We do need another thread though as I am sure we are not going to be hugely welcome long term in the general 1D thread!
Can't imagine it would be age thing. There was nothing inappropriate about those conversations and we've had them before?
Perhaps they could provide a do's and don'ts manual rather than simply closing down our threads. Most annoying!
