The five young foals of One Direction landed on the cover of the September issue of British GQ and opened up to the magazine, among other topics, tour bus rules, groupies and booze. And then, as logic would dictate, One Direction fans sent death threats to the magazine on Twitter.
You can read an excerpt of the interview below. Did the magazine deserve to receive death threats? Let’s break it down:
When asked about tour bus rules for groupies and booze Niall admitted that due to being underage in the U.S. they “couldn’t really party.”
Meanwhile, Liam hinted that he wouldn’t be opposed to a party or two if the time allowed. “Maybe we need someone to schedule that in for us.”
The Internet is full of rumors so GQ asked Harry about his rumored relationship with Nick Grimshaw, specifically if he’s bisexual.
“Bisexual? Me? I don’t think so. I’m pretty sure I’m not,” Harry confessed.
Despite their constant time in the limelight and the rumor mill, Harry said he will never complain.
“I never like it when a celebrity goes on Twitter and says, ‘This isn’t true!’ It is what it is; I tend not to do that. The only time it gets really annoying is that if you get into a relationship and you get into a place where you really like someone and then things are being written in the papers that affect them and how they see you. Then it can get annoying.”
Despite all the prying, the guys say it isn’t hard to stay faithful to their girlfriends. “I don’t think it is. The type of girls that would sleep with you in a heartbeat aren’t the type of girls I’d want to take home anyway,” Louis said.
Rumors aside, when asked what the band wants to be remembered as Niall put it simply. “It would be great to just be remembered.”
