I Die: One Direction Fan Fiction Sold To Major Publisher For 6 Figures

I Die: One Direction Fan Fiction Sold To Major Publisher For 6 Figures

Where is the future of book publishing? In Harry Styles’ knickers, apparently. Anna Todd, 25, a first time writer who’s married and lives in Central Texas, has sold her insanely popular One Direction fan fiction e-book series, After, to Simon & Schuster Gallery Books for a reported six figures. At least she’s an adult, which makes me feel better because the thought of a 13-year-old making more money than me makes me die a little inside. Anyway, After – and its two sequels — has been read over 800 million times (?!?!) according to the website, and tells the story of Tessa Young, “an 18 year old college student with a simple life, excellent grades, and a sweet boyfriend,” who “meets a rude boy named Harry, with too many tattoos and piercings who shatters her plans.” Tessa and Harry — Styles, OBVS — have their own Twitter hashtag couple name — #HESSA — and Todd even sells goddamn jewelry inspired by the books. I’m not hating; I’m in awe. I still have no desire to read One Direction fanfic, but shit, if Anna Todd wrote a book about starting your own fanfic empire, I would read the hell out of that.

Kristen Wiig Did Her Entire “Tonight Show” Interview As Harry Styles

Kristen Wiig Did Her Entire "Tonight Show" Interview As Harry Styles
It's Harry Styles!

Sure, having Lady Gaga, Will Smith, U2, Joan Rivers and Kim Kardashian, amongst others, appear on Jimmy Fallon’s debut episode as host of “The Tonight Show” is impressive, but, as any girl under the age of 15 will tell you, it could have used more Harry Styles. It’s not a party until One Direction’s cutest crooner (yeah, I SAID IT) has shown up. No word on where the real Harry was, but Kristen Wiig noticed the oversight and did her pal Jimmy a solid by showing up as a guest on his second episode as Harry Styles. She even sang! Kristen Wiig as Harry Styles may be my favorite Wiig’s impersonation yet.

U Know It's True
  • Sesame Street has been invaded by the British! Here’s One Direction teaching kiddies all about the letter “U.” [YouTube]
  • The LAPD might get a search warrant to go through Justin Bieber’s text messages and see if he bragged about the incident where he egged his neighbor’s house, allegedly causing thousands of dollars in damages. [TMZ]
  • Pete Wentz once had a penis piercing. Sit with that a minute. [US Weekly]
  • Haribo candies will stop selling black licorice “shaped like ethnic masks or faces resembling those found in African, Asian, or Native American art.” It’s called the Skipper Mix and will no longer be available in Denmark or Sweden, where it was sold. [Deutche Welle] Keep reading »

Let’s Watch Harry Styles Lift Weights

Pump That Iron, Harry

One Direction has posted a video of their workout routine, and it’s every bit as adorable and energetic as you’d think. Harry Styles, who says he’s “training to be Thor,” let’s us all in on his Bikram yoga routine. Hot yoga? I’m impressed. These guys are simply too cute. GIF after the jump! [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

Watch This: A Glorious Mashup Of Ripped Off Songs

Ripped Off Songs Mashup
Can You Tell The Difference Between These Tunes?

Katy Perry might have been the latest musician to, umm, borrow a melody from another song, but she’s far from the first. Comedian/musician Chad Neidt made this delightfully catchy one-minute mashup of 12 other songs that were pretty much note-for-note copies of the originals. From Sublime to One Direction to Nickelback (the only band in the bunch that ripped off a song from itself), this video has all the answers to the question, “Haven’t I heard this song before?” [YouTube via Laughing Squid]

Justin Timberlake Is Ready To Form An *NSYNC/One Direction Supergroup

“Really, can 10 of those hairstyles be on the same stage? I think we already know the answer. We should just form some super group. It’d be hilarious. What I have seen [of One Direction], I like them. They seem grounded to me, I like that about them.”

– Ex-boy-bander Justin Timberlake gave the best response ever when asked for his thoughts on One Direction, the harmonizing heartthrobs of the moment. Not only does he approve of the young lads’ “grounded” attitudes, he proposed forming an *NSYNC/One Direction supergroup, which I think boy band fans of past and present can all agree would be AMAZING. [Perez Hilton]

P.S. Chris Kirkpatrick’s face in the photo above is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. See what I mean, after the jump… Keep reading »
