Louis Tomlinson has signed an 18-month record contract with Simon Cowell, making him the ONLY One Direction star to remain loyal to the X Factor judge who found them fame in 2010. Oo-er!

‘I’m very happy to have signed. I’m excited to be continuing my relationship with Syco, and also working with the brilliant team at RCA in the US,’ said Tomlinson.

The singer released his debut solo single, Just Hold On, a collaboration with Steve Aoki, in December and launched the song on The X Factor with the help of the Simon.

‘I’ve been working really hard in the studio and can’t wait to show you what I’ve been writing.’

Speaking to The Sun, the 25-year-old added: ‘As always, I’d like to thank the fans for their unbelievable support.’

His One Direction bandmates – Harry Styles, Niall Horan, and Liam Payne – all decided to sign contracts with other labels, with Payne to Capitol Records, Horan to Universal, Styles with Columbia, and ex-bandmate Zayn Malik signing to RCA Records.

Cowell had previously admitted he was expecting a phone call from the boys for help with their careers post-One Direction – only it never came.

‘I hear so many things now, which they’re doing, which I’m not involved with. It’s a bit like I’m getting the hint you don’t want me to come to the party. Sorry for making you famous,’ he said.

A label insider also added that it was ‘no secret Simon was upset when the other guys went to different labels but he has always been closest to Louis’.

‘They have worked together very closely in the past 18 months on various projects, so staying loyal was a no-brainer for him,’ they added.

Ring Direction? Liam Sparks Marriage Rumors Referring to “Wife” Cheryl!

Posted on May 17th, 2017 at 6:49 am by    

Pop singer Liam Payne has sparked rumours he and ex- Girls Aloud star Cheryl Tweedy have secretly wed after he described her as his “wife” in a recent US radio interview. Oo-er!

While joking about a popular burger chain, the 23-year-old singer said: “I left my wife and child at home and I was straight out to In-N-Out Burger.”

Liam, who is busy promoting his new solo material in the US, also spoke to Sirius FM about being a dad.

The couple welcomed baby son Bear back in March. Recalling the day after the birth he said: “I did all the first day’s worth of nappy changes, because [Cheryl] was so tired, she slept more or less.
“All day, there was no poo. I was like this is great, I can handle this.”

But then Cheryl, 33, woke up to the baby crying at 5am and wanted to change his nappy.

Liam said: “I was like ‘Go on babes’, this was her first ever nappy change. So he poos for the first time, of course he does.”
“Secondly, sprouts off (wees). I’m looking at him thinking this didn’t happen to me all day.

“That’s so unfair. She had to give birth to him and she was the one who got weed on first.”

Liam also revealed he and Cheryl had both selected Bear’s middle name – Grey.

“That was multiple choice, that was together. It was going to be James, because my middle name is James, but I prefer Grey.”

Liam has recently been forced to leave Cheryl at home with the baby to complete promotional duties in the US.

But he’s making sure he’s in constant touch with the pair however, the former One Direction star said: “We’re always Facetiming and the other day he smiled at me for the first time, it was so special.

“I just want to spend every moment with him but she (Cheryl) is so great, she does everything on her own, she’s been amazing.”

How sweet!

Singer Harry Styles Opens Up About Famous Flings in Rolling Stone!

Posted on April 19th, 2017 at 7:12 am by    

In his first Rolling Stone profile as a solo artist, Harry Styles opened up about his new music, his future, and how he cant seem to get away from those Taylor Swift songs that may be about him.

But the only moment that really stood out to was his action, not his words, when Swift came up in conversation.

“I gotta pee first. This might be a long one,” Styles said. He reportedly left the table and added, “Actually, you can say, ‘He went for a pee and never came back.'”

Styles briefly dated Swift in 2012, and the country star later released two songs, “Style” and “Out of the Woods,” with lyrics that are perhaps too obviously about Styles.

“I mean, I don’t know if they’re about me or not,” he said, “but the issue is, she’s so good, they’re bloody everywhere.”

He also touched on their blossoming but short-lived relationship, saying it was all a real learning experience.

“In writing songs about stuff like that, I like tipping a hat to the time together,” he said. “You’re celebrating the fact it was powerful and made you feel something, rather than, ‘This didn’t work out, and that’s bad.’

“And if you run into that person, maybe it’s awkward, maybe you have to get drunk … but you shared something. Meeting someone new, sharing those experiences, it’s the best s— ever. So thank you.”

The former One Direction singer is set to release his first solo album on May 12. The first single, Sign of the Times, was a surprise for many “One D” fans who noted the singer stray away from the former bands pop-style to a more raw, David-Bowie-meets-Queen sound.

Styles noted that when he and Swift her photographed together in Central Park, he had an eye-opening realization about what happens when you mix romance with fame.

“When I see photos from that day, I think, ‘Relationships are hard, at any age,” Styles said.

“And adding in that you don’t really understand exactly how it works when you’re 18, trying to navigate all that stuff didn’t make it easier.

“I mean, you’re a little bit awkward to begin with. You’re on a date with someone you really like. It should be that simple, right? It was a learning experience for sure. But at the heart of it – I just wanted it to be a normal date.”

Oo-er ‘arry… Oo-er!

Cheryl Shows Off Baby Bump in L’Oreal Prince’s Trust Campaign!

Posted on February 23rd, 2017 at 7:37 am by    

Now that Cheryl Tweedy is officially pregnant, she can’t get enough of flaunting her bump.

The former Girls Aloud singer showed off her prominent baby bump, confirming reports that she and boyfriend Liam Payne are expecting a child. 

The singer has posed for a photograph featuring celebrities including Dame Helen Mirren and Katie Piper, published in conjunction with a Prince’s Trust new programme.

Cheryl had broken her social media silence last week to announce that she has found a site in Newcastle to open a Prince’s Trust centre for vulnerable young people.

The official video for the ‘All Worth It’  the camera focuses on the star’s tummy, which she is cradling with both hands.

Cheryl tells the camera: “We’re all worth it” while sitting on a chair.

Helen Mirren says: “Famous words I know, but L’Oreal Paris has always believed that everyone is worth it, whoever you are…” with Louisa Johnson finishing: “And wherever you’re from.”

Cheryl then seemingly references her beau Liam’s debut song with One Direction, saying: “What makes us different is what makes us beautiful.”

The camera zooms out to show Cheryl posing happily with her hand on her hip, proudly displaying her bump in front of a neutral background.

The ambassadors of the campaign go on to explain that L’Oreal and the Prince’s Trust are teaming up to help 10,000 young people with confidence and self-worth building.

They will be providing confidence training, with help on everything from interviewing to body language, in an effort to reduce self-doubt in young people.

Cheryl had previously not confirmed her pregnancy, although she was sported with a prominent bump at several events.

This will be Cheryl, who has been married twice before, and Liam’s first baby.

While Cheryl was preparing to officially debut her bump, Liam, 23, was at the BRIT Awards where he accepted the Best British Video gong for One Direction’s History.

Posted on November 30th, 2016 at 12:11 pm by    

Singer Cheryl Cole showed off her bump as she stepped out with boyfriend Liam Payne earlier this week.

The former Girls Aloud star is rumoured to be expecting her first child with the former One Direction singer, and gave her biggest hint yet while out in London in a figure-hugging jersey dress that accentuated her middle,  The Sun reports.

The 33-year-old beamed as she attended a charity concert in aid of both her own charity Cheryl’s Trust and The Prince’s Trust.

With her hair framing her face, and a slick of bold lipstick, Cheryl looked radiant as she was escorted in the Quintessentially Foundation’s Annual Fayre of St James’ Church by her proud looking boyfriend, Liam, 23.

As the fabric of her khaki jumper dress clung to her curves, the singer wrapped up against the cold in a long black coat.

Once inside, the pair stared adoringly at each other as if they were the only people in the room.

Cheryl’s open display of her bump comes after weeks of disguising her figure on various TV shows and personal appearances.

In promotional pictures for her upcoming appearance on the genealogy show Who Do You Think You Are? the star covered up in a thick black woolly jumper and folder her arms across her stomach.

She said: “I am happier than I’ve ever been before.

“Now is a very good time in my life.”

The pictures prompted something of a storm on social media, particularly among fans of One Direction. Oo-er!

It’s official: Cheryl Granted Quickie Divorce!

Posted on October 20th, 2016 at 8:28 am by    

You can almost hear the sound of Cheryl Tweedy skipping with joy after she was finally granted a divorce from ex Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini.

The couple have obtained a “decree nisi in their divorce proceedings”, a spokesman for the Fight For This Love singer has confirmed. Chezza and Jean-Bernard tied the knot after just three months of dating in 2014.

However, their marriage came to a shock ending after just 18 months, with the former Girls Aloud singer splitting from the French hunk in January this year.

It later emerged that she started dating One Direction‘s Liam Payne in December, with their romance going public a month after her separation announcement.

Today a court ruled that they could see no reason not to grant a divorce to Cheryl and JB.

It is believed Cheryl cited “irreconcilable differences” while filing for divorce from her former beau.

No financial settlements have been made between the two, according to reports.

A source previously told The Sun Newspaper: “This has been the result of months of negotiations, but Cheryl and JB reached an agreement two months ago. And there has been no financial settlement. Lots of wild figures have been thrown about, but that is the truth, as the documents will show.

“JB is not going to be paid any money by Cheryl.”

The 33-year-old shocked fans after announcing that she had married businessman Jean-Bernard with an Instagram post in July 2014.

The pair tied the knot on the exotic island of Mustique.

However, it was reported that the couple struggled with the language barrier, while Simon Cowell claimed Jean-Bernard’s behaviour was “out of order” while visiting his wife at X Factor.

This divorce is sure to spark rumours of an upcoming wedding to Liam Payne.

The X Factor duo have been inseperable since going public this year – and fans even think that Cheryl is pregnant.

The Geordie babe has been seen sporting what appears to be a bump, while Directioners thought that a hashtag congratulating Liam on a new record deal was confirming the pregnancy news.

Harry Styles Casts Doubts Over Whether One Direction Will Return!

Posted on September 28th, 2016 at 7:41 am by    

It’s been just over a year since One Direction announced they were taking a break and now Harry Styles has hinted the band’s hiatus could be longer than expected. Sounds like something you might say to grab a few column inches if you ask me!

In his first solo interview the singer has cast doubt over whether the band would ever actually make a return.

When asked about the future of One Direction, Harry said: “I don’t know.

“When we started people always asked, ‘where do you think you’ll be in five years?’ It’s a difficult question to answer.

“I would never say we’ll never do anything ever again but it’s good for us to be exploring different things.

“Maybe at some point everyone will want to do something again but it’ll be better if it happens naturally like, ‘Hey, we all really want to do this again’. If that were to happen it would be amazing.
“I would never rule that out. It’s the most important, greatest thing that ever happened to me, being in that band. It completely changed my life.”

In the interview with Another Man, Harry was quizzed by Paul McCartney and his good friend Chelsea Handler.

Speaking about splitting off from Louis TomlinsonLiam Payne and Niall Horan, Harry explained: “The nice thing for me is that I’m not coming away from the band feeling like I wasn’t able to do what I wanted to do.

“I loved it and it was what I wanted but I’m enjoying writing at the moment; trying new things. I’ve been asking myself, ‘What do you want to say?’

“It’s this bubble where things happen around you and it’s not real life. It’s amazing but it’s not realistic. So when you come out of it it’s nice to catch up with everything.”

Although it’s unlikely Harry will ever be able to shake the trappings of fame, he admits that when he returns home to his mum, he can live a relatively normal life.

Awwwwww!

Liam Payne Shares First Photo of Cheryl Amid pregnancy Rumors!

Posted on September 21st, 2016 at 7:58 am by    

He’s hard at work in the studio, One Direction‘s Liam Payne but has clearly got his lady on his mind. Speculation about whether the British star and former Girl’s Aloud singer Cheryl Tweedy are expecting their first baby together has been rife ever since he changed his Twitter bio to read ‘the luckiest man in the world’.

But for now the pair are keeping schtum about the rumours, instead sharing pictures on social media of themselves wearing matching face masks… Oo-er!

Now the showbiz world is buzzing after Liam sent a cute message to girlfriend – via Instagram – where he gushed about how much he missed her.

Sharing a sweet snap of the pair wearing facemasks, Liam wrote: “I miss youthe things you make me do. Home soon!” adding smiley face emojis.

Loved-up Liam then shared another more solemn selfie on his own, and other snaps showing him busy making music.

Liam signed to Capitol Records in July as he embarks on a solo career while 1D are on hiatus.

Meanwhile, the star’s super cute message to Cheryl comes amid increasing speculation there are “ready for a baby” together.

Last week Cheryl sparked pregnancy rumours when she appeared in a new L’Oreal advert with a fuller face and changed appearance. Neither has commented on the speculation.

The star hasn’t been pictured in public since June when she accompanied Liam to his sister’s wedding, and has only posted pics from previous shoots and campaigns.cheryl-cole-l-and-liam-payne

Her new ad sees a series of famous faces dressed down with minimal make-up, promoting the brand, and Cheryl looks totally different in a basic white vest top, loose hair and noticeably fuller cheeks.

One fan commented: “Just seen the new L’Oréal advert & Cheryl Cole is looking back to her normal stunning self with some weight back on her. Good to see!.”

Neither of the stars have confirmed or denied recent claims, but a source told Now magazine: “Cheryl’s never been more determined to have a baby.

“It’s like it’s the only thing in the world that matters to her.

“She’s never been so focused on something. Cheryl has a stash of pregnancy and motherhood books she’s always reading.”

Liam fuelled speculation last week as he changed his Twitter bio to read ‘Happiest man in the world’.

The update did not go unnoticed by fans. One wrote: “Liam changed his bio to ‘the luckiest man in the world’ I’M SCREAMING.”

After all this brouhaha it would rather disappointing now if the pregnancy rumors amounted to nothing… Just saying!
