One Direction get the pop-art effect on this week’s issue of Billboard mag, out on stands NOW.
The guys — Niall, Zayn, Louis, Liam and Harry – became the first British band to debut at No. 1 in the U.S. without a runaway radio hit.
“The Internet in generalâ€”YouTube and Twitter and Facebookâ€”thatâ€™s where they found us,” Niall dished about their fans. “Itâ€™s crazy to us. [The fans have] proven over and over again how strong the power of the Internet is.”
Simon Cowell, who signed 1D to his Syco Records imprint after they won X Factor in 2010 shared, “I donâ€™t like to say whatâ€™s going to happen in a yearâ€™s time, because I genuinely donâ€™t know. Nobody sits here with some grotesque master plan. You just go, look after the guys, respect the fans and, most importantly, youâ€™ve got to make fantastic records. Because without that, it doesnâ€™t work. If you start looking at them as objects, it dehumanizes them.”
