1D Niall’s got a beautiful new tweetheart
MEET One Direction heart-throb Niall Horan’s beautiful new girlfriend Ali McGinley.
Pop star Niall, 18, hooked up with the brunette while he was home in Mullingar, Co Westmeath, over the weekend.
And smitten Ali, 17, admitted yesterday: “He genuinely may be one of the nicest men I’ve ever met. We’re close.”
The pretty schoolgirl posed with What Makes You Beautiful singer Niall several times during his recent trip back home.
One photo of the cute pair shows Niall kissing her on the cheek, and in another they’re cuddled up in a chair together.
Ali has since been subjected to vile abuse from jealous One Direction fans commenting on her blog.
But there have also been messages of support left on her Tumblr site.
One follower wrote: “hi, you’re BEAUTIFUL. And I’m so sorry you have to go through all of this s*** with Niall’s fans. Best of luck with all this.”
Ali wrote back: “Hello love! Thank you thank you, he’s rather the stunner, huh? haha.”
And when asked whether she is dating the teen star, Ali responded: “I can confirm that we’re both happy campers, nothing less nothing more x”.
A source revealed that sparks flew between the young pair straight away after they met while out and about in Mullingar.
The insider said: “Ali and Niall are from the same town but didn’t really know one another until a few months ago.
“Ali attends school in Alexandra College in Dublin and wouldn’t have known Niall from when they were younger.
“He thinks she is gorgeous and she is pretty sweet on him too but Niall’s schedule means it would be pretty hard to have a relationship with anyone.”
As soon as news emerged of Niall’s new romance yesterday bitter trolls vented their abuse online. One vile comment posted on Ali’s personal blog read: “You’re actually pathetic, I dunno what Niall sees in you.... annoying c***.”
A shocked Ali responded: “Who p***ed in your cheerios? I’ve done nothing to you, I don’t see why you’ve got such a hate towards me?”
Just last week, the Irish Sun revealed how bitter internet users started false twitter rumours that his ex-girlfriend had died of cancer.
Pretty Holly Scally, who went out with him when he was just 16, was shocked at the stream of vicious tweets directed at her for simply being Niall’s ex.
And bandmate Harry Styles’ Irish love interest Sarah-Louise Colivet, 24, also had to stop using her Twitter account because of hate messages from envious fans.
Niall returned to the UK on Monday night after a long weekend with family and friends in his hometown.
Horan caught up with his Voice of Ireland coach pal Bressie and spent an evening at the Festival of Fires in the town on Saturday.
Niall ventured out in Mullingar once again on Sunday with some old school pals and posted pictures of himself partying the night away.
The teen is gearing up to head back to the US with his chart-topping band later this month.
In March One Direction made history by becoming the first Irish or British group to have their debut album enter the American charts at No1.
The band are also due back in studio this summer to begin working on their second album.
One Direction's Harry Styles Planning To Go Solo?
One Directon fans we have some bad news... it seems that everyone's favourite heartthrob Harry Styles has reportedly flown to Los Angeles alone to pursue a 'big solo project'.
Styles was pictured with a mystery blonde last week as he returned Stateside without Liam, Zayn, Louis and Niall.
However, the Daily Star claims Harry has returned to the US in a bid to make it on his own, after catching the eye of a number of companies who all want to meet him.
A source told the tabloid: "Harry has stacks of fans in America, it’s safe to say they absolutely love him. He’s been offered a big solo project, so he flew out to Los Angeles without the rest of the boy band.
“He’s been in America filming something. It may have been an advert or a film – I can’t say exactly what – but it’s worth a lot of money."
They continued: "He’s a poster boy in the States. He has the perfect look – cute, British, well-spoken, and girls love his curly hair. He’s a corporate company’s dream and a vast number of American firms want a piece of him.
“All sorts of companies are vying to have him promoting their products. His family have been joking he’ll be in the Rich List before long.”
Meanwhile, Harry Styles' favourite lady has confirmed that he isn't dating at the moment and that controversial relationship with Caroline Flack is well and truly over.
One Direction Announce New Single 'More Than This'
Superstars One Direction have revealed that their next Australian single is going to be 'More Than This', with the music video set to debut this Friday (May 11).
The boys' record label, Sony, broke the news via Twitter earlier today:
"BIG NEWS Directioners! Today Show Australia will be premiering the music video for One Direction's 'More Than This' THIS FRIDAY morning! Who's excited?"
'More Like This' will be the third single released in Australia, following 'What Makes You Beautiful' and 'One Thing' - with the album 'Up All Night' also hitting the top of the charts in both Australia and the US last month.
The five-piece made their way around the world in a huge global promo tour, resulting in them being the first British band EVER to top the American charts with their debut album.
However, all may not be as well as it seems after all - One Direction fans may have to come to terms with the fact that heartthrob Harry Styles may be pursuing a 'big solo project'.
Styles was pictured with a mystery blonde last week as he returned Stateside without fellow boybanders Liam, Zayn, Louis and Niall. Eeeek!
Which One Direction Singer Insured His Butt?
Ever the jokesters, One Direction claims one of their band members has insured his butt.
Granted, it's been done before (Jennifer Lopez famously insured her back end and Mariah Carey and Rihanna both have insured legs), but given their tendency to be a bit pranky, we're betting 1D is fibbing just a bit.
Harry Styles tells the Daily Star that his bandmate Louis Tomlinson insured his butt for £100,000 (about $162,000 U.S. dollars).
Styles dished, "Louis has insured his bum just like J. Lo. We support him and so does his family."
Given the rather low dollar value on his bum, we're pretty confident this is a joke, though Louis commented, "Some would call our fans crazy, but we feel they are passionate. They do like to touch us and feel us, and it is a bit strange. Some of the lads have been touched in some unusual places."
He added, "Our bodyguards can only do so much. No-one has sustained any injuries yet, but you never can be too careful."
Um... kidding, right?
Liam Payne reveals his cross-dressing past
One Direction singer Liam Payne has revealed a juicy little secret - he used to dress up in ladies’ clothes – but it wasn’t done out of choice.
The boy band hottie has admitted that his three sisters used to gang up and make him wear girls’ garments including the odd pair of high heels…
“My sisters used to dress me... They used to try to influence my fashion a bit. Which you know... may have involved a heel or two,” he admitted to The Sun.
We bet the cheeky little scamp loved it!
Liam’s also admitted his sisters used to dub him “Cheesy Head” because he used to eat cheese flavoured crisps all day. We think he should possibly keep these secrets about his past to himself if he wants to hang onto his street cred!
Meanwhile it seems Harry Styles from the band might be branching out on some solo projects in the US, after reports emerged that the curly-haired singer flew out to Los Angeles without the rest of One Direction.
A source told the Daily Star : "Harry has stacks of fans in America, it's safe to say they absolutely love him.
"He's been offered a big solo project, so he flew out to Los Angeles without the rest of the boy band.
"He's been in America filming something. It may have been an advert or a film - I can't say exactly what - but it's worth a lot of money."
And because there is a lack of Zayn in here..
