One Direction bigger and shitter than The Beatles, says Styles

One Direction

Harry ‘Hair’ Styles has said he thinks One Direction are “bigger” than The Beatles. Which, a la John Lennon’s way of thinking, means 1D are also more popular than Jesus. Hard cheese, JC.

Speaking to Top Of The Pops magazine the other day, Haz was heard to say: “We all sat and watched the film of The Beatles arriving in America. And, to be honest, that really was like us. Stepping off the plane, the girls, the madness. It was exactly the same as when we got there – just 50 years earlier”.

Yeah, ‘exactly the same’. Except there are five boys in 1D. And The Beatles weren’t made, GM-style, by ITV. And The Beatles played guitar. Plus the million, trillion, zillion other ways in which One Direction are not like The Beatles, and vice versa.

Though, to be fair, Harry did firmly clarify that he was comparing his pop group to the Fab Four in terms of their shared worldwide celebrity, and nothing more. He went on: “None of us think we’re in the same league as them music-wise. We’d be total fools if we did. Fame-wise, it’s probably even bigger, but we don’t stand anywhere near them in terms of music”.

Yeah, they’re still languishing down with the likes of The Who and Def Leppard.
