5 Years of One Direction: A Walk Down Memory Lane

Today is a very special day; the day that has ruined my life; the day that One Direction was formed. July 23, 2010 at 8:22PM, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, and Zayn Malik were put into a singing group known to the world as One Direction. It’s no surprise that these boys soon took over the world, winning countless awards, dozens of televised performances, four albums, worldwide recognition, sold out tours, millions of concert dates, four perfumes, and even a feature film! It’s crazy to think just how much these boys have accomplished, and how many lives they have changed, saved, and touched.

For this special five year anniversary, I decided to create a little fan project. I asked fans to tweet with the #allthelove1d their favorite one direction moments and memories from the past five years. I have compiled them together and threw in a few of my favorites. Shout out to Michele for helping me with the extras! Here are 100 One Direction Moments from the past 5 Years, completely random and sent in by you then fans!!!

1. Video Diaries

Who could forget the first time you went on youtube and typed in “One Direction Funny Moments” and stumbled upon these wonderful videos. So authentic and genuine truly depicting fetus one direction. Who could ever forget NO JIMMY PROTESTED! and that Louis loves girls who eat carrots! Click below to enjoy all of the video diaries and relive those first days of One Direction


2. Auditions

It was love at first sight and sound as they boys took the stage and sang the classics


3. “This isn’t the last of One Direction”

Yes I know its ironic now that Zayn said this… but when we all were bummed that they didn’t win the competition and they asked about the future of the band we had no idea that One Direction was about to take over the world and ruin our lives for the next five years


4. A Year in the Making

Who could forget when Harry was so worried what people thought of him, when they all hung out in the bungalow and sang acoustic songs. So much happened in a year and I’m so glad they captured it in a little documentary.


5. This Is Us

This movie has so many iconic moments that may be mentioned later in the post but…ONE DIRECTION MADE A MOVIE AND IT WAS IN THEATERS! One of the many times I was so so so proud of them. Who could forget the premiere. I was watching it at my desk at work and trying so hard not to cry proud tears.

And Thats What You Missed This Week: Ten Standout Fandom Moments

Finally I have time to blog again! This week was my first week back from break and so much has happened in the fandom world! This usually happens where events that I think are important occur but then they aren’t substantial enough for a blog post on their own. So I decided to introduce this segment where every Saturday (hopefully) I will comment on 10 relatively important things that happened this week. This segment will also be a great way to stay up to date in case like me as a student, you don’t have as much time to really see everything that is happening.

One Direction

1. Zayn has been tweeting up a storm

In a strange twist of events, Zayn has been the member of One Direction tweeting and posting the most. From the pictures from his new haircut to just inspiration or love, Zayn has suddenly remembered he has a Twitter account. For all we know it could be his News Years Resolution to use his Twitter more. Either way its great that he is since he is the most quiet and private member of the band. So far he has tweeted 35 times since the beginning of the year which is strange considering most tweets are usually for promo and such. Here are some of the highlights so far

2. Liam has returned to Twitter as a drunk philanthropist

In 2014 we asked “Where’s Zen?” In 2015 we are asking “Where’s Leyum?” The one who is usually the most active on his Twitter has been MIA for quite some time. That was until he posted a Twitlonger this week in which he talked about how we have the power to change the world and that we should take the time to get involved in charities. My timeline was soon flooded with tweets praising Liam. being ecstatic he was back and being so proud of how he wants to change the world, and of course a hashtag about saving the world soon trended #LetsHelpLiamChangeTheWorld. You can read the Twitlonger HERE. It was soon revealed the day after, that this inspirational tweet was the result of one of Liam’s drunk nights! Drunk or Sober, it was great to have Liam back to the Twitterverse, even if it was only for a day or so

3. Harry is out and about in LA taking adorable seflies

Harry has been enjoying his break out in LA and every so often someone finds him and they take a selfie. Unlike the NYC pictures where he purposely puts on an annoyed face but takes the photo anyway…Harry has been taking some pretty cute pictures with fans, and just in general. Here are some of my favorites

Those pants!

4. Zayn said goodbye to his long locks

Zayn surprised us all by shaving the sides of his hair and saying goodbye to his long hair that we have all been loving.

Embedded image permalink

And what was even more surprising is that he posted a selfie to share the end result

Which in turn caused the fandom to “die” trending #ZaynYourSelfieKilledUs

5. Louis and Liam fly to LA

Louis and Liam were spotted leaving Heathrow Airport in London and arriving at LAX. Both brought their girlfriends and as we later learned because of the tweet, Liam was drunk. My guess is they are going to LA to write and record but for all we know they could have just been missing their mate Harry and wanted to pay him a visit.

6. Harry and Meghan Trainor have a duet

Their song “Someday Maybe” sadly did not make it on to her album which means its up to the expert directors to find the song and leak it! In multiple articles Meghan explained that Harry wanted to write for her and she was surprised when she found out he actually had beautiful poetic lyrics. The song is about breaking up with someone and then seeing them on a date with someone else. The song has also been rumored to be called “London Lights.” Either way the song needs to be leaked immediately!

7. Niall went to watch cricket

Not much happened with Niall this week. He has been staying in Melbourne under the radar and was spotted at a cricket match.

Jonas Brothers

1. Joe is back in the studio with some old friends

Joe revealed this week on his snapchat and Instagram that he was back in the studio. In his snapchat story he also took a selfie with two other old friends, Jack Lawless (drummer) and Greg Garbowski (Bass)!!! For any Jonas Brothers fan this was huge news! We have been watching Nick’s solo success and have anxiously been waiting for Joe to release a project. What is even more special is that he is recording with his old back up band and friends!

Embedded image permalink

2. Jealous earns the number one spot in the country

That’s right!!! Jealous is the number one song in all of the country!!! I can’t go anywhere without hearing Jealous on the radio and they even play it at the bars! I could never describe how proud I am for Nick and his success! He deserves it all and he even threw a party to celebrate with Demi and Wilmer in attendance!

3. Nick poses for GQ

Nick Jonas is back in all his douchebaggery crotch grabbing glory!! Although he is more clothed this time, Nick still delivers in this amazing GQ photoshoot! Some photots channel the old Jobro days and bring me to tears and others just show how much he has grown up and matured. Nothing is better than waking up in the morning only to find that Nick has done another magazine photo shoot! Here are all 10 photos to wrap up this post!

Also throwing this in here because I think its hysterical!

Hope you all had a great week! I’m going to try to post as much as I can!

Reflection of 2014 As Told By a Fangirl

So today is the day that 2014 draws to a close. Happy almost 2015! While it has been an amazing year in many ways, I figured why not focus on the fandom side of things. Instead of answering these questions in relation to my life, since its a fangirl blog, I would answer these questions about the pop culture and my experiences in 2014! No one wants some sentimental thing of me talking about my life…So here is the New Years Eve Tag: Fangirl Edition

1.What one event, big or small, are you going to tell your grandchildren about?

I would tell my grandchildren about the time that Nick Jonas decided to do a photo shoot that basically declared him as a sex symbol. My grandchildren will already know about my obsession with Nick and this story will ad to the overall description of how he has evolved from a shy little boy who would hate to talk in interviews to a man who throws his crotch, abs, and ass around for the world to see.

2.If you had to describe your 2014 in 3 words, what would they be?

Thrilling, Exhausting, Amazing

3.What new things did you discover about yourself?

I discovered that none of my obsessions are a phase considering I am still here after many years and still in love with all of them. 1DAF,ย  I also discovered that Zayn’s high notes can make my cry at the drop of a hat, and that I cry a lot more now because of how these people have ruined and completely changed my life. And on a more serious note I learned not to give a fuck what people think in terms of what musicians and things I decide to like.

4.What single achievement are you most proud of?

Hmm well I made the A-list of the Kim Kardashian game, and was the best in Rhode Island for the One Direction and One Tree Hill categories. I am really really proud of this blog and how many views it has got in a few short months. I’m also proud of when Nick Jonas favorited my tweet, and finishing Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, How I Met Your Mother, Modern Family, and Orange Is the New Black on Netflix. And any day I managed to get up before noon because that’s a struggle.

5.What was the best news you received?

Five things

1. Going to Disney for summer vacation

2. One Direction OTRA tour

3. Taylor’s Album

4. Nick’s Album

5. One Direction’s Album

6.What was your favorite place that you visited in 2014?

DISNEY WORLD, ITALY, FRANCE, SWITZERLAND, GILLETTE STADIUM

7.Which of your personal qualities turned out to be the most helpful this year?

My twitter skills because I was there for literally everything that happened and all the big pop culture news, and being able to find concert tickets on twitter, and my ticketmaster skills.

8.Who was your number one go-to person that you could always rely on?

Update accounts, the credible ones, and my fangirl friends

9.Which new skills did you learn?

How to not care what others think

10.What, or who, are you most thankful for?

I feel I covered this already but just more tours, more VIP opportunities, the people I have met, Harrys manbun, Zayns strand, Louis silly face, Liam and Nialls hysterical tweets, Nicks cockyness, Joe’s instagram, Kevin being my best friend on snapchat. Taylor and Demi and Zoella and all my favs. Basically I am thankful that I get the opportunity to support these people and see them live. Truly Truly Thankful for my opportunities.

11.If someone wrote a book about your life in 2014, what kind of genre would it be? A comedy, love story, drama, film noir or something else?

Well it could be a sad love story where the guy doesnt know the girl exists, it would probably be a comedy because everything was just so funny. But lets just say it would be a documentary because so much happened it wouldn’t fit into a drama. Or we could make it a 3D concert movie that goes behind the scenes of my normal life.

12.What was the most important lesson you learnt in 2014?

To always have a charged phone and that a boyband can ruin your life

13.Which mental block(s) did you overcome?

Dream world vs. Reality, keep them separate

14.What 5 people did you most enjoy spending time with?

Is it five people specifically??? because you know my fave five (Harry, Zayn, Liam, Niall, Louis)

Or in terms of fandom.. Leah, Bella, and Crystal are always a riot

But I love all my friends

15.What was your biggest break-through moment career-wise?

This blog I guess, I never expected it would ever get more than 100 views

16.How did your relationship to your family evolve?

They still don’t get the fangirl thing but they accept it

17.What book or movie affected your life in a profound way?

I recently finished Zoe’s book Girl Online and it was adorable, but I also read the After series… for movies probably the WWA movie because I get to relive the best tour.

18.What was your favorite compliment that you received this year?

I don’t keep track of compliments, but probably someone telling me I was funny

19.What little things did you most enjoy during your day-to-day life?

I loved looking at pictures and saving them to my camera roll everyday. I loved when everyone on my timeline was watching or tweeting about the same thing. And I loved taking naps

20.What cool things did you create this year?

Um I made some cool crafts, and probably this blog and my friendship with Leah

21.What was your most common mental state this year (e.g. excited, curious, stressed)?

Excited/Wonderstruck

22.Was there anything you did for the very first time in your life this year?

Going to Europe, in terms of fandom I’m a veteran so there wasn’t anything new

Texting Leah about the last WWA concert live stream, WWA with Crystal, Meeting Nick with Marissa and Leah

Life is too short to be anything but happy

29.What was the biggest problem you solved?

Where’s Zayn/ Where Do Broken Hearts Go

30.What was the funniest moment of your year, one that still makes it hard not to burst out laughing when you think about it?

This one is so hard….I really can’t pick. Lets go with when Harry favorited a naughty tweet and he was caught so he favorited a bunch of pictures of kittens and stuff and pretended nothing happened by asking about the weather. Or when Liam asked what Daddy meant, the Steal My Girl video, and the true answer to this isn’t fandom related

31.What purchase turned out to be the best decision ever?

Tickets to OTRA

32.What one thing would you do differently and why?

“Having no regrets is all that she really wants” No reason to look back cause I can’t make any changes

33.What do you deserve a pat on the back for?

Just making it through the year of hot men…there was a lot of overwhelming things and multiple times I said ” I died” but I’m still here so that’s good

34.What activities made you lose track of time?

TUMBLR and of course watching Youtube videos of interviews, funny moments, and my favorite Youtubers

35.What did you think about more than anything else?

One Direction, only because the Jonas Brothers were split and weren’t up to much and One Direction was literally everywhere. Still have so much love for both

36.What topics did you most enjoy learning about?

I love watching interviews and learning more about my favorite celebrities

37.What new habits did you cultivate?

Adding millions of photos to my camera roll, intense multitasking and doing research

38.What advice would you give your early-2014 self if you could?

Just close your eyes and enjoy the roller coaster that is life – Zayn Malik

39.Did any parts of your self or your life do a complete 180 this year?

Nah, if anything i just loved everything more than the year before

40.What or who had the biggest positive impact on your life this year?

This is pretty self explanatory after reading all these questions, I love my favs ๐Ÿ™‚ and having awesome concert seats just makes such an impact. In short, social media.

Wow what a year this has been! I know that most of these sound so ridiculous but I really am at the point where it’s my honest thoughts and it would be stupid to lie. If you do want to see my year as a normal person, with traveling, friends, family, sorority and what not you can see this flipagram

HOPE YOU ALL HAVE SUCH AN AMAZING NEW YEAR!!!

Man Crush Monday of the Year: 20 Men Who Owned 2014

Today marks the last Monday of 2014! Soon it will be 2015 and we will welcome another year full of Monday instagram feeds full of hot men! I’ve compiled a list of twenty men who I feel have made my 2014 or killed the game this year. Ranked from 20 to 1 declaring my Man Crush of the year! Did your fave make my list? Let me know in the comments!!

20. James Marsden

I have loved James Marsden from when I first saw him in 27 Dresses and Hairspray. This year I was thrilled when he got to be the leading man in the Nicholas Sparks movie The Best of Me. With his blue eyes, cheekbones, and perfectly groomed scruff, it’s no wonder why he made my list.

19. John Stamos

Probably the oldest on my list but you have to admit he has aged so well. He still has that Uncle Jesse charm that captured the hearts of every girl in America. I had to feature him for my Little :). If you ever get a chance, follow his instagram and twitter. His use of social media this year is one of the main reasons why he owned 2014.

18. Chris Pine

Last week I was able to see Into the Woods and this guy completely stole the movie. He was the perfect choice to play the two dimensional Prince Charming everyone dreams of marrying. He brought the comedy and his blue eyes would pierce your soul. He also features in Armani commercials adding to reasons he makes girls swoon. This campaign and his dashing good looks in the movie earn him a spot on this countdown.

17. Channing Tatum

channing tatum hd wallpaper 2014 Wallpaper

Anything he touches is pure gold. 22 Jump Street made me laugh until I cried and who isn’t excited for Magic Mike 2 even if it the storyline will probably suck like the first. He manages to have the biggest biceps I have ever seen but still look polished and put together in formal clothing. If this list was about pouty lips he would be number one but he definitely earns a spot as a man who owned 2014.

16.ย  Dave Franco

Another great movie of 2014 was Neighbors where Dave and Zac are the leaders of a fraternity that declare war on their complaining neighbors. Dave always shines in these funny movies and you almost forget that he is acting because it is exactly how you imagine him. In my opinion he is the cuter Franco which is why he made the list.

15. Nathan Scott

2014 was the year that I finished binge watching One Tree Hill so of course I would have to include the adorable and ever sexy Nathan Scott on my list. From boyfriend, to husband to father Nathan captivated me as the snobby jock turned good guy. I loved being able to watch him grow and mature as a character and as a man. He definitely owned my 2014.

14. Lucas Scott

Go ahead say what you want but I liked Lucas more than Nathan, could be because of my childhood crush on Chad. I was absolutely devastated after Season 6. (I’m not going to spoil anything but those who have seen the show to this point will know why I was devastated). Lucas was one of the main reasons I really enjoyed the show, second to Brooke of course. Had to include both Scott brothers because they helped make my 2014.

13. Nate Archibald

2014 was a busy year for me because I also binge watched Gossip Girl. Can’t thank that show enough for bringing such beautiful men into my life. Chace Crawford, let alone his character Nate, have earned a spot on this list for their boyish charm, breath taking smile, and puppy dog eyes.

12. Chuck Bass

To top off all these television show characters it has to be Chuck Bass. Anyone who watches the show always gushes about him and his relationship with Blair. Ed made such a convincing performance I didn’t even know he was British until I saw him in an interview. There is no denying that Chuck Bass is the most suave man to ever exist. His guard may be up but that heart full of love and of course his perfect hair lands him on my list of men who made my year.

11. Joe Jonas

I mean I don’t want to be rude and say that Joe didn’t do much this year but its kinda the truth and that’s the only reason he didn’t make it to the top ten. He came back to perform with Demi basically making my life and my 2014. Regardless Joe has been looking gorgeous all year and I love keeping up with his crazy instagrams, snapchat stories and tweets. He found his passion and DJs in famous cities and has had the time of his life this year with all the free time. I’m sure he would love to still be with his brothers, and in a way he is the one I’m most sad about since I don’t know if he will do a solo project because of how Fastlife did…but I would love to see him do a project next year! I think its time he does a rom-com! Doing nothing or everything, Joe will always keep me on my toes.

*disclaimer: Kevin is not on the list because I respect his wife and family and don’t exactly see him as a Man Crush. He is very attractive but I just don’t crush over Kev.

10. Sean O’Pry

Also known as the hunk in Taylor Swift’s Blank Space video. Sean definitely owned 2014 because I have seen him everywhere and nobody talks about the video without mentioning this handsome man. I hope Sean will do more in the future because I sure do love to look at him.

9. Liam Hemsworth

2014 brought us Mockingjay Part 1 which of course brought this heartthrob back to the big screen. In a much larger role than the first two movies, Liam really got to show off his acting chops and his ruggedness. In my opinion the best thing he ever did was end things with Miley. Now he has made a name for himself and I hope will continue to do more projects in the feature. Can’t wait to see what this Australian hottie will do in the future.

8. Zac Efron

I feel as if this needs no explanation as to why he has made my top ten but nonetheless I will fawn over him just like all the other man candy I have featured. Zac was incredible in Neighbors, in fact I can’t name a single movie with Zac Efron that I haven’t liked. He has got the perfect body landing him the prestigious award of best shirtless scene in a movie and continues to pick the perfect projects. Zac will forever be on my Man Crush Monday list and of course the list for 2014.

7. Liam Payne

Okay so the next 2 (5, 6 and 7) were impossible to do because I love One Direction so much and I can’t exactly rank them but I tried my best and even writing this now I’m rethinking my decision. So Liam Payne, what to say about Liam Payne…how about that time he pretended he took a nude picture, or wondered what the word “daddy” meant or talked about “sweet potato and marshmellows?” Liam has such a spunky personality that he never ceased to amaze me this year by what he would say or do. Of course his rock hard abs and looks similar to David Beckham don’t hurt at all. He definitely owned 2014 along with his bandmates for the biggest reason of all: WWA Tour aka the best thing in existence.

6. Niall Horan

The word cute comes to mind usually when I think of the bundle of joy that is Niall Horan, but this year he matured so much that now he has undeniable sex apppeal. Just watching him play his guitar and work the red carpet made him a must have mcm this year. I am in love with his “IDGAF” personality and of course who doesn’t love his laugh. He owned 2014 with his silly answers to interview questions, being the number one fan, and just enjoying every moment of his life. He also killed it on the vocals on this new album sounding sexier than ever.

5. Louis Tomlinson

I don’t know what there is left to say about Louis after my last post for his birthday, but appearance wise I think 2014 was his best year. He really showed off his blue eyes and his cheekbones that could cut through metal. Of course his personality hasn’t changed and he is still one of the funniest guys always making jokes and faces at the camera. His hair has been giving me so many feels and while its hard to compare him to his band mates I think he earned the 5th spot on the man candy countdown.

4. Colin O’Donoghue

Cue the swoons! This guy has made my year but being deadly gorgeous on one of my favorite shows Once Upon a Time. Looking daddy af every single episode made me eager to tune in week after week. This season we even got to see a softer, not so pirate like side of Hook which made me swoon even more. Without a doubt this man has owned 2014.

3. Zayn Malik

I never knew such a gorgeous human being could ever exist. It literally took me an hour to find the most perfect image to use to illustrate Zayn in 2014. He delivered all the way from his insane high notes essential to every one direction song, to his fashion choices aka the Strand. He has the most gorgeous eyes, cheekbones, jawline, hair, I could go on and on. A little part of me dies inside knowing he belongs to Perrie but at least she allows him to be shared with the world. 2014 was a great year all thanks to the beauty that is Zayn Malik.

2. Nick Jonas

Okay so the only reason that Nick is second and not first is because of how he was at the meet and greet, lets just say he wasn’t exactly the friendliest. I still love him and he will always be my number one guy but he just didn’t earn number one this year because he’s gotten a bit too cocky. In 2014 Nick Jonas was the name that everyone was saying. He established himself as a sex symbol with his Flaunt magazine photoshoot, his adult role on Kingdom, and of course his brand new album. Nick worked himself so hard this year constantly promoting himself and his music. Without a doubt this year was a highlight for Nick. I was nervous at first that I wouldn’t see him as much once he broke up the band but he made sure that wasn’t the case. I hear Jealous every day on the radio, he is using social media more than he ever has, and he is constantly being interviewed or photographed for magazines making him runner up for Man Crush of the Year.

1. Harry Styles

Lets be real were any of you surprised that this cupcake would land my number one spot? I also spent so long looking for the perfect picture to post of him that I just had to pick one and move on so if that doesn’t say something I don’t know what does…Harry has completely taken over my life. He is everywhere and I mean everywhere. I always see articles of him. about 50 pictures of him on twitter each hour, constant tumblr posts, and of course his WTF tweets and black and white instagrams. 2014 was the year of Harry Styles. Everyone was talking about him and rightfully so. Yes he has history dating famous celebrities but he is so much more than that. He has a love for pregnant women and children, he visits families of sick children without the media knowing, and he just has the biggest heart. This year I was fortunate enough to see him on tour and interact with him a bit and I can honestly say my 2014 would not have been as amazing as it was without him. He owned 2014 with the new album, the new hair, the new tattoos, and his loving personality.

An AMAzayn Night: When the Brits took over the American Music Awards

Last night marked the 42nd annual American Music Awards! It was a great night for the music industry as America awarded our favorite artists from 2013 to now. Amongst all the tweeting and texting, I managed to jot down a few notes about my opinion of the show. Keep in mind that I really only watched it for One Direction and Taylor Swift..and okay maybe I wasn’t too upset to have to listen to 5 Seconds of Summer (still can’t decide how I feel about them but I love their album so yeah that’s where I am at). So here is my review of the show highlighting the greatest moments of the night.

Taylor’s Performance of Blank Space

I could not think of a more perfect way to open the show. America has been loving this song for weeks now, always maintaining it’s number one spot on the iTunes chart. I was so curious to see what kind of performance she would do since the music video made such a splash. Also I was extremely excited to see her perform it for the very first time. I already have my tickets to the 1989 tour and it was the perfect hype for what I’m in store for this summer. I knew Taylor would deliver and she definitely did. I am all for how she is embracing the thought that people think she is insane and making fun of herself. While the vocals weren’t the best I felt like I was watching a scene from a musical and she waltzed from set to set burning roses and breaking boys hearts one by one. It was one of my favorite performances of the night. Her acting was impeccable each time she made the face for being insane. All hail Queen Tay and her live performances.

One Direction wins Best Pop/Rock Group

What a great way to kick off the night with the boys winning the very first award. It’s sad to say but at this point I just always assume they will win. The best part was seeing everyone’s reaction on twitter. The AMA’s went from 0 to 1000 just like that. I missed the Red Carpet interviews so I had yet to see what they were wearing. Let’s just say I was rolling on the floor laughing. I wonder if they have a game going called “Let’s not tell Niall what we are wearing” cause everyone looked so dapper and suave and here is Niall in a skull T-shirt. I mean yeah his T-shirt is over $300 but it wish they would have told him they were gonna be a bit more dressed up. Going off of that Zayn’s hair was pure perfection. I have been loving his longer hair making him look like Flynn Rider or Aladdin and the way Lou styled it was perfection. Louis also had quite the hairdo channeling Danny Zuko with his twist in the middle. Louis has been looking so good recently, a huge improvement from his look in the You and I video. It must be his tan or his clean shaven face but I can’t stop talking about how handsome he looks at this moment. Liam always dresses well. I loved the cheetah print shirt to add a pop of color to their all black ensemble. When it comes to dressing formal Liam always has the perfect suit. And last but not least we have the mess that is Harry Styles…this kid I swear to God will be the death of me. First of all his hat had a feather in it…like okay. Second, he is wearing cheetah print boots. His hair was another story all beautiful and curly hanging under his hat. Then his outfit was just strange with his shirt and jacket and it worked but it didn’t. I was just happy his shirt was buttoned because I don’t think his tattooed cleavage would have been appropriate. They jumped from their seats and pulled into a group hug, knowing that’s our favorite part anytime they win anything. Anyway, the boys won the award and of course thanked the fans and most importantly Liam said America is like their second home which just made me swoon, scream, and cry at the same time.

When Pitbull was no where to be seen or heard

Pitbull was the absolute worst host to ever host an award show. I wanted to claw my eyes out every time he was on the screen. This goes more beyond the fact that he isn’t attractive and looked like Humpty Dumpty in a suit. He had absolutely no material. All he would ever mention was the fact that he is Latino and speaking Spanish gives the channel more views and blah blah blah. No one was laughing at his jokes and he was just a horrible choice who had nothing good to say. I don’t even know any Pitbull fans, my entire timeline was full of hate for him and begging for him to get off the stage. So it was a major highlight of the show whenever he wasn’t involved.

The Performances

While I really didn’t care for most of the people who performed, I have to admit they were still good live performances. Some that I remember include Selena Gomez heart wrenching break up song that brought Taylor to tears. It was a very sad song and you could feel the emotion and sadness in her voice. In my opinion its a song about how she is sad she is broken up with Beiber and how she wishes she had stayed with Nick Jonas (Kidding obvi the song has nothing to do with Nick but hey he was there in the audience so it was just a random thought). I wasn’t a huge fan of the weird images behind her like the crying eye and whatnot but I loved when they had the animated angel wings it was so beautiful. Her dress was stunning if I could wear that to my Formal I would in a heartbeat.

I also really enjoyed the 5 Seconds of Summer performance. I was upset that they didn’t perform their own original song and were stuck with a cover song instead but you could tell the audience was loving it. I really like their music but I’m not about to go spend my money and time on them I don’t think I could afford to have any more idols in my life. However, they did a great job performing and I imagine this was Niall in the audience. Niall is their biggest fan so I’m pretty sure he was in the aisles going crazy to their performance.

Other noteable mentions include Iggy, Lorde, Fergie, Ariana, and Bang Bang. There were more performances than awards which was weird but for music awards I guess it makes sense. I just felt like I was watching a concert especially when the credits showed about 20 awards they didn’t present during the show.

One Direction wins Best Pop/Rock Album

Just like Donny Walhburg said, Boybands kick ass and are still kicking ass. One Direction took home their second award of the night with the best album for Midnight Memories. At this point I was bawling my eyes out because Midnight Memories is my favorite album of all time. Yes I know that Four just came out but I spent the past year obsessed with Midnight Memories constantly listening to it and seeing them perform the songs at least three times. I spent my summer listening to the album in the car everyday to and from work and I just can’t express just how much I love it. In my opinion they deserved this award because of how well the album did. Harry took over the thank you speech for this one which was entertaining because he is not the most eloquent speaker. He made sure to give his thanks to the fans and everyone that bought the album and everyone. Also important to mention is that the boys kind of dressed down and changed their outfits at this point to make Niall not stand out as much. Rumor has it that they were in the front row tripping people but then they moved them but their wasn’t much proof so I didn’t believe it but it definitely sounds like something they would do. More awards means more group hugs!

5 Seconds of Summer wins Best New Artist

I think that these awards were partially fan voted so I had a feeling that they would win this awards. I really enjoyed seeing how happy they were that they won. You could tell they really didn’t expect to win it. Michael was so happy and Callum just didn’t know what to with himself. They had a cute little speech and their outfits were so casual but I guess that’s their style. I don’t think I have ever seen them dressed up. Not much to say here but it was a highlight of the night considering they won their first ever AMA. Let’s also keep in mind that Taylor Swift is the only American to actually win an award last night. Between 1D, Iggy, and 5sos they are all foreign.

Night Changes Performance

Okay this is probably gonna be a long one. I am obsessed with this song. I don’t know what it is but it’s all I ever want to listen to. I find myself always playing it, watching the video, or just randomly singing it. I was not at all prepared for what I was about to see. During the performance the camera never left their gorgeous faces, filming each boy up close as they sang their solos and verses. The vocals were absolutely amazing. I truly love when people have the nerve to say they can’t sing even after hearing them live. There was no backing track, no lip syncing, it was all them singing their hearts out. The song starts with Zayn and he stares into your soul with his big brown eyes and you can’t help but look at his glorious cheek bones, facial hair, and of course that one piece of hair cascading down his forehead. If his looks aren’t enough his voice will make anyone melt. He also stole the show, trending Worldwide as “Zayne” as all the people who don’t care for One Direction commented on his Godly beauty. Religious views: Zayn Malik. Liam takes the next verse and he gives you those puppy dog eyes and that look of love he always has when he sings slow songs. I loved how up close and personal we got to get, getting to just enjoy their voices and the no frills performance. The only frills being the gold accents on their outfits and the overgrown grass behind them. Harry took the chorus doing everything possible to avoid eye contact with the camera knowing there would be numerous casualties if he ever so much as glanced into the camera lens. He sounded incredible like always. Louis gave the camera his smolder as he sang his verse. He sounded incredible too. People always say he is a weak singer but I thought his part was very strong. They all delivered when it came to singing into the camera. Niall was next with his baby blues and adorable smile as he sang his verse, what cute boy. Then Harry did the chorus again and Zayn did his heavenly solo, the room was absolutely silent it was amazing. I could not get over how perfect they sounded. It was my favorite performance of the song yet.

Taylor wins the Dick Clark Award

What do you do when you win every possible award but you are still so amazing, you make up a new award for you to win. Let’s be real, Taylor is slaying the game. Her album has been out for almost a month and its still the most talked about and number one on iTunes. She took everyone aback with her listening parties, giving gifts to fans, and even visiting them at their homes. She is just perfect in every way and I completely agree that she deserves this award of excellence. I love Taylor so much and I was borderline crying when they showed her little montage about all her success and what a great person she is. Her speech was incredible and you can tell she is still humbled every time she wins. I also loved how she was with her best friends before winning the award. Just so proud of Taylor and everything she has to offer. Also quick side note I hate how her moment had to be turned into something about Harry. That everyone was looking for his reaction or for him to do something and that people were surprised he was respectful. Of course he was respectful…why would anyone think he would even do something. Yeah they dated but they are on good terms as far as I know so it shouldn’t have been a big deal. However, I think it was hysterical they played Out of the Woods for her to accept it because its known its about him and they are both there together but he wouldn’t do anything because of it.

One Direction wins Artist of the Year

They won at the beginning and they won at end. Taking home three out of three and winning against Beyonce, the boys took home Artist of the Year. In my opinion they deserved it and if it is fan voted then absolutely. The fandom works so hard when it comes to voting and supporting and most Beyonce fans don’t. Also she wasn’t at the awards so it was kinda known that the boys would win it. Regardless I was extremely nervous for them because they were nominated against some greats. It was the perfect way to end the night, one more group hug, one more speech, and just seeing them realize just how much their fans love them and how much they slayed the past year. I’m so proud of them and I hope they are proud of themselves. We did it! 1D3peat!

Fandom hug we all survived

October Highlights

As October draws to a close, I figured I would share some of the awesome things that happened this October

Well the month started with the abstastic Flaunt magazine photo shoot where Nick showed off his body and his goods. Nick used to be so shy about showing his body that he used to wear a towel or a shirt near the pool so the paps wouldn’t capture anything. Then he kind of evolved and posted a shirtless photo on Instagram which gave me life. I was at work at the time and I took an early break because I was sobbing uncontrollably. At that time it had only been a week after I had seen them in concert and met them so it was just really emotional. Flash forward two years and now he has become this man who just grabs his dick and goes around shirtless. I would blame his douchey attitude on his girlfriend and her influence but that is another story. I woke up that morning to see one picture and then in about ten minutes all the pictures had been released. I’ve always loved Nick and still think he is the sexiest thing on the planet so this photoshoot was a gift from God. it was super annoying when everyone was like “OMG Nick is so hot” and they probably can’t name two of his new songs but none the less it was a great way to start the month.

Sadly, October also meant the end of the Where We Are Tour. I was fortunate enough to see the tour twice and be about four feet away from the lads so WWA was such a huge part of my summer. Even when I wasn’t at a show, it was so much to fun to wake up and find HQ pictures of the boys from the tour. Seeing vines and videos was also so much fun. In a way it was like the end of the era because some of the songs they probably won’t even sing on tour ever again. Midnight Memories is my favorite album so far and I think this tour was absolutely perfect. From the special Better Than Words crotch grabs, to Harry being a whale, to Zayn hitting insane high notes and just the general fun they all have onstage. Due to the wonders of technology, someone made a livestream of the show so the whole fandom jumped on Twitter to freak out and cry one last time. I was texting Leah (abostonbelle.wordpress.com) the whole time and our conversation is something I never will forget. RIP WWA ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Nick Jonas went on tour in October and I was fortunate enough to see him in Boston at the Wilbur theater. I love the kid but he always mumbles so I couldn’t exactly hear any of this new songs. Regardless Leah and I had such an amazing time making fools of ourselves. The crowd wasn’t into it much and would only just record and take photos. I decided since I was basically in the middle that I would just go crazy and dance and show him I was having fun. This resulted in a ton of eye contact and laughing. Highlights were definitely when he sang Chains, Numb, and of course Jealous. It was such a fun night!

Kingdom, the show Nick Jonas has been promoting like crazy also premiered in October. Nick plays a UFC fighter who is the son of the gym owner. The gym is dealing with financial struggles and is trying its hardest to find new talent. There is an interesting love triangle and many intense dramatic scenes. I’m sure people have their opinions about Nick’s acting but I have to admit he is amazing on this show. In the past I have had trouble not seeing him as the character and only as Nick Jonas. On Kingdom he is no longer the teen heartthrob Nick but has transformed into Nate. The show is on DirectTV so I end up finding links to watch it online. If you can find it I definitely recommend watching it!

On October 11th, for one weekend only, One Direction released a Where We Are Tour concert movie. Much to my disappointment they removed some of my favorite songs from the setlist. I was heartbroken to see they had gotten rid of Moments, Kiss You, Better Than Words, Strong, and Rock Me. I think those are some of the best songs live and some of the most memorable from tour. Rumor has it that on the DVD they will be selling they will include all of the songs. I guess because of the exclusive interview they had to cut some tracks but it was still an amazing movie. The audience did this amazing fan project during the song Right Now that was breath taking. Also they boys all played up to the camera so when you were least expecting it you would get a lovely close up and some eye contact.

Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out the woods? In October, Taylor dropped this single on iTunes and it was the first taste we would get of her new album. She had previously done an interview with Rolling Stone where she revealed the song was about none other than Mr. Styles. This song brought me to tears when it released because of the beautiful love story it tells. I can’t get over the part where they move the furniture to dance and when he hit the brakes too soon and they cried all night till the sun came up and omg I just love this song.

One Direction Announced tour!!!!! Out of the blue the boys announced a tour that goes to the UK and USA. The goal of this tour I guess is to go to stadiums that they didn’t go to on WWA. Doesn’t matter to me because they are going to Gillette Stadium September 12th and its the last day of the tour!!!! Literally had a panic attack because I need to be at the last show. Since the boys did 3 dates last summer, its hard to predict what they will announce for more dates and when they will go onsale. Stay tuned because tickets go onsale tomorrow and I’ll most likely make a post about the thought process when buying tickets. Wish me luck!!!

Aside from all the fangirl happenings, a very important life event also occurred. I became a great grand big to the best GG out there! The reveal was one for the history books. To reveal themselves to their littles the bigs were supposed to jump out of boxes. My grand little on the other hand, didn’t exactly make it out of the box and ended up on the floor which was so entertaining I almost peed my pants. She is so much fun to be around and we share an obsession for Nick Jonas making it perfect. I can’t wait to get to know her better and have an amazing year with my sorority family!

Left to right: (Me, My little, My grand little, My great grand little)

The final things that happened in October was the release of 1989 which you can read all about here, the Steal My Girl video which you can read about Here, and I started this blog!! Thank you so much to everyone who has read so fa! All I can hope is that you will be entertained. Hope you all had a great October and will have a Happy Halloween!!
