Who are Nialler, Hazza, DJ Malik, Tommo, and Daddy Directioner? If you’re a 12-18 year old girl you probably know, it’s One Direction! Yes, like most teenage girls in the world I’ve become obsessed with this British/Irish boy band. But if you’re a boy or girl over age 19, you’re probably thinking “What’s the big deal?” You may have seen them on every daytime talk show, heard What Makes You Beautiful on the radio, and maybe even seen their Pepsi commercial, but to understand why these 5 guys have become the world’s biggest pop stars, you have to go inside the mind of a teenage girl

In 2010, Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, and Liam Payne all tried out separately for the X Factor UK. In Boot Camp, they all got cut and thought they would just have to return to their normal lives. Until Simon Cowell got involved. As the head judge of the show, he saw potential in the boys, not as solo artists, but as a group. So he put them together and they became One Direction. The guys ended up placing 3rd on the show, but that was just  the start for them. Already with thousands of fans in the UK, they released their first single What Makes You Beautiful. And then the Direction Infection started. If you thought the Beatles had passionate fans, then you haven’t seen us Directioners! From camping out on the streets of New York in the cold, to hiding in trash cans, some people may call us crazy. But actually, it’s more like dedicated.

Now that you know about their career, let’s learn why people like their personalities. Louis is the oldest, but definitely not the most mature. As the joker/prankster of the group, he keeps the guys (and fans) always entertained. Next is Zayn, as they call him the  vain bad boy who’s actually really sweet, just a little shy. Then there’s Liam, my favorite. “Daddy Directioner” keeps the guys serious when they need to be, but can also be almost as goofy as Louis.

The only Irishman, Niall is very proud of his culture and loves to laugh. Last, but certainly the most personality is Harry, now known as Taylor Swift’s boyfriend. Even though he’s the band’s youngest member he’s had the most girlfriends by far, from 35 year old women to 17 year old models. As you can see, each guy is very different, but combined? They are the world’s biggest boy band, a title there fans would say they definitely deserve.
