One Direction to be successful in the USA according to Big Time Rush
One Direction are being tipped to become “massive” in America, after the group arrived in the States on tour last week.
The boys are supporting Nickelodeon stars and fellow pop band Big Time Rush on their current tour, and have been praised by the group for their “incredible talent”.
Speaking to Digital Spy, Carlos Pena from BTR said: "I think that boybands as a whole are really coming back. We started four years ago with Big Time Rush and there were no boybands out at that time. We were very lucky, but these new bands are coming in at an ideal time."
The singer continued: "They're incredibly talented, and I think they're going to have massive success in the US. It doesn't work for everyone, but I think it will for them."
Carlos added: "Our fans are also One Direction fans, which is a great sign for them. Hopefully we can help each other out in our own countries."
One Direction are already huge in the UK, despite the fact they’ve only been on the scene just over a year, and it looks like they’re about to become even bigger Stateside, judging by the reaction they’ve received.
Please just don’t forget about us back home in Britain boys!
And it’s not just the band’s music that’s helping them to get noticed; newly single Harry Styles has already attracted the attention of one very eligible suitor – 22-year-old Katherine Schwarzenegger, who is the daughter of movie star Arnold.
The student and author first Tweeted her approval of 18-year-old Styles, writing: Just watched my first One Direction video w my cousin and @Harry_Styles is a cutie indeed [sic]!”
She then managed to wrangle her way onto the Nickelodeon set while One Direction were filming scenes for the sitcom iCarly, where she managed to grab a peek of Harry and the boys up close.
But it seems that poor Harry is a little scared of what the Terminatorstar might think of him dating his beloved daughter.
He told The Sun: "Katherine's been in the studio watching us. Imagine having Arnie as your dad-in-law."
Not to worry Harry – we’re sure there are plenty more fish in the sea for you yet!
