Uncle Simon Gives One Direction A Big Pat On The Shoulder

36

Simon is like the big friendly Uncle for One Direction, keeping his distance but always having an eye on what they get up to – and stepping in if he thinks they’ve gone a step too far.

Simon Cowell loves One Direction

Speaking with the Sunday People, Simon Cowell said:

“He doesn’t hang around, Harry, so yes, I’m impressed. I don’t worry about the One Direction lads. Having a few girlfriends is totally fine.”‘

The X Factor supremo isn’t concerned one little bit by what the boys get up, and thinks they’re doing a great job of looking after themselves.

Simon said:

“If there are ever any issues then we deal with it quietly as friends.”

Mr Cowell added:

“I said to them: ‘Don’t treat it as work because it’s fun, then you will have the best time of your lives.’ I don’t believe in telling the guys what they can and can’t do.”

Speaking about their liking for tattoos – and mostly Harry and Zayn, Simon carried on:

“But having a couple of tattoos and a couple of girlfriends isn’t a problem.”

We’ve got a lot to thank Simon Cowell for, after all it was him (oh yeh and Nicole Scherzinger) who put the band together during the 2010 series of UK X Factor.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH DUDE!

        OMG! same here!
        Today at Biology class, our teacher went on telling us about how the Xylem transports water and minerals in just one direction…
        All (literally all) the people turned to look at me!!! And I was blushing like mad!!! Our teacher noticed, and smiled and resumed teaching!
        That happens in Geography too!!
        When the teacher says ‘Nile River’ all the faces are at me smiling!
        Coz ‘Nile’ sounds like ‘Niall’ !!!!!
        OMG! I LOVE ONE DIRECTION!

        • Pramo1Dnep

          Yah when teacher was teaching about Africa.Nile river sounded Niall and in physics while study about electric circuit sir said that in series it always flows in one direction. He said 1D 7 times in the same class.I am like the school’s biggest 1D fan so everyone comes to me to get info about 1D. I love them.
