The 21-year-old “What Do You Mean?” singer recently sat down with a New Zealand radio station where he was asked about their upcoming record, Made in the A.M., which drops on November 13 – the same day as his new album, Purpose.
“[They're] not really going on the road much, but we’re talking about them now, so it gives them some promo, right?” Justin said. “So, that’s probably why they did it. I think it was strategy on their part because my release date was first. But, whatever. It’s whatever. It’s gonna be fun. I’m excited to see what happens.”
“I absolutely hate some of those paps… Nasty nasty people .Whoever the hell you were, don’t ever tell one of our fans to get out of the way,” Niall sounded off on Twitter afterwards. “So you can get a shit picture of me walking into a nite club that you’ll get 10 quid … You do nothin for me , so you get out of the way.”
Later on, Niall gave a shout out to the 1D fans: “Thank you to everyone who came down to watch us this week… You were amazing.”
The 22-year-old One Direction singer opened up to the mag about getting married one day, possibly recording music as a solo artist, and his struggles with the partying lifestyle. Check it:
On getting his future with girlfriendSophia Smith: “We have talked about marriage, but 22 seems a bit young for us. Sophia needs to go off and do what she wants to do. I don’t want her to be one of those stay-at-home girlfriends who doesn’t really do much.”
On what’s next for him: “If the right song comes along and I think I should sing it, then I will release it as a solo artist. If the other boys go solo I would love to write songs for them.”
On his wild partying time: “I’m not afraid to say that I actually went through a pretty bad [drinking] stage. And for that time in my life, that was perfect for me. I mean, you’re away from home and that can get hard. Also there were a lot of things on my mind and that’s what helped me through. Now I’m a lot more focused and I feel good to be out of that zone and be more concentrated. There were a just a few times that I went over the limit with things and then I had to pull it back.”
