Madame Tussaud’s, the famous wax museum dedicated to freaking people out with lifelike wax figures of celebrities, is in the process of creating a new series of figures for celebrated teen hormone machine One Direction. To commemorate this momentous occasion, photos were taken of the wax models being carefully sculpted, and oh my God is Harry Styles’ head in clay ominous. Look how biiiiiig that thing is! And the strange lump of hair? His bizarre detached head is going to haunt my dreams tonight, I just know it. [Photo: Getty Images]
Niall Horan is one of the five adorable preteens or talking penguins or whatever in One Direction. He has a zillion fans and likely a lot of money. But yet he decided to wear this abomination of a sweatshirt in public. Isn’t there a creepy Lou Pearlman-like figure around to prevent this from happening?
Another day, another guy for Taylor Swift to break up with and then write sad songs about. Yes, the singer has split with Harry Styles of UK boy band One Direction, the Daily Mail reports. Swift, 23, and Styles, 18, were on vacation in the Virgin Islands over the New Year’s holiday and “had an almighty row,” according to an obviously British source.

In “Crazy Stupid Love” — that funny rom-com starring Ryan Gosling so you know I’ve seen in 20,000 times — Gosling’s character explains to Emma Stone that women want to sleep with him as soon as they find out that he can do the lift from “Dirty Dancing.” I have come to the conclusion that Taylor Swift has seen that film more than I have because A) it’s totally her kind of movie and I know this because I get Taylor Swift, B) she’s pals with Emma Stone, and C) she managed to convince new boyfriend Harry Styles (from One Direction) to do the lift with her at a club this week. In conclusion, while Taylor may be having the time of her life, no one should ever do this again. It’s officially jumped the shark. [MTV]

Unfinished novel on your hard drive? Still paying off those loans for your MFA? It’s probably best to skip this post.
A 16-year-old girl named Emily Baker’s has gotten an e-book deal from Penguin for Loving The Band, which she originally penned online. For those readers who are not 14-year-old girls, One Direction is a boy band from the UK with that really

Tonight, the boy band One Direction will take the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards for a much-hyped performance. This fact is making me feel very old, because all the young people on the internet are freaking out about it and I’m like, “Wait, what is a One Direction?” This stands in stark contrast to my lifestyle in the ’90s, when my love for boy bands–namely the Backstreet Boys–was so intense I spent all my time talking about them, listening to them, watching their music videos, going to their concerts, writing them semi-desperate letters, making artful collages of their headshots, buying behind-the-scenes DVDs, and planning my inevitable BSB wedding. Yep, I knew–and still know–pretty much everything there is to know about the Backstreet Boys, but I know pretty much nothing about One Direction. Here are nine specific discrepancies that my 14-year-old self would be ashamed of… Keep reading »
