1D welcome Zayn back on tour
One Direction are thrilled to have Zayn Malik back on tour with them.
The teen heartthrob pulled out of the band's support slot on Big Time Rush's North American tour last month to be with his family in the UK following the sudden death of his aunt but returned to the US earlier this week where his bandmates were delighted to welcome him back.
Harry Styles wrote on twitter: "Off to a radio interview ... first show tonight with Zayn back ... It's gonna be fun :)"
He then posted a picture of a smiling Zayn, with the caption, "Like he never left".
Before meeting up with Harry and the other band members Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Liam Payne, Zayn tweeted his excitement at rejoining the tour.
He wrote: "Back in the US can't wait to see the boys hopefully they haven't missed me too much aha ! :D x x (sic)"
Following the news about Zayn's aunt, fans quickly started tweeting about the singer with the trending topic #StayStrongZayn created in his honor.
Although he didn't reference the death directly on his twitter page, Zayn did retweet a message from a fan which read: "God has no Phone, but I talk to him. He has no Facebook, but he is still my friend. He does not have a twitter, but I still follow him. (sic)"
VIDEO: Louis Tomlinson & Niall Horan never want to grow up
One Direction are being grabbed and poked by everyone in America at the moment, and Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan were snuck aside for an interview with andPOP, where they talked about Simon Cowell, Up All Night, and eating.
Get a load of their faces when they think about food. They look like us when we think about them.
They also chatted a little about being five normal, silly teenagers - until Louis remembered that he's not actually a teenager any more, and his face crumbled into a broken-hearted and downtrodden blimp of a man.
For about half a second.
Liam Payne From One Direction Defends His Girlfriend On Twitter
We all know that the members of One Direction are every teenage girl's dream boyfriend -- and Liam Payne has given the girls of the world another reason to love him by defending his girlfriend Danielle Peazer on Twitter!
Being the girlfriend of a 1D boy unfortunately opens you up to mean comments from anonymous fans on Twitter, and Liam spoke out to defend Danielle after a fan sent her hurtful messages on the social network.
The user, who we won't name, tweeted various mean messages to Danielle including one telling her to die. And being the good boyfriend that he is, Liam stood up for his girl.
Liam tweeted, "leave her alone".
He added, "how would you feel if someone said this too sum1 u care about you should be ashamed of yourself telin sum1 to go and die."
Liam continued, "hw cud you even say that I hope ur happy with yourself cuz to everyone else this just looks weird if I was u I'd delete it".
Danielle retweeted one of the bully's tweets and wrote, "Some people just don't learn....."
She added later, "I stayed away from Twitter tonight, but it is a shame to see that the person who told me to 'die' has gained 500 followers today. #notcool"
Cyber bullying is not cool -- it is hurtful, and we are really glad that Liam said something. Danielle does not deserve this kind of hate just because she happens to be dating someone famous. And having a girlfriend hasn't stopped Liam from being really great with all his fans - he always takes time out of his day to post on Twitter.
Most One Direction fans love Danielle -- we've seen all the nice tweets you guys make to her!
