The members of One Direction continue their immense success in the world of music this week as Entertainmentwise reports this Friday, Nov. 23, that the British boy band has made Billboard history: their second album, titled “Take Me Home,” has just become the number one highest-selling album on the Top 200 Billboard charts, much like their first record was. One of the 1D members, Zayn Malik, has also been rumored to have possibly begun a reported “Twitter fight” with Max George of The Wanted.
Having sold over 530,000 copies of their latest music album this week, “Take Me Home,” One Direction has made a name for itself beyond even Barbara Walters’ list of “Most Fascinating People of 2012:” they have entered the music hall of fame as the first British band to ever have both a first and second album come out on top as number one on the Billboard charts in the U.S. Of course, Niall Horan, Harry Styles, and the other talented members of 1D also made music history with their first album (“Up All Night”) also topped Billboard music rankings, the first British band to do so.
In other less positive One Direction news, one of the “Little Things” singer Zayn Malik has been reported to have initiated a “feud” with Max George of The Wanted (“Glad You Came”). Malik was said to call Max a “wannabe” on Twitter, and though both stars deleted their tweets within hours, one 1D fan captured Zayn Malik’s messages to The Wanted star before their removal.
“@MaxTheWanted … Your display just shows how much a wannabe you are :)”, tweeted Malik.
“@MaxTheWanted I’m not sure why your still talking to me mate … The convo ended when I called you a geek.”
It’s unknown at this point among fellow 1D fans whether this is just playful fun among the popular bands, or whether (as some source sites have already speculated) it might actually be the start of a One Direction and The Wanted member “feud.”
Zayn Malik isn’t the only One Direction star to be making headlines, either: Harry Styles is also being talked about as the new beau of Taylor Swift. Though the Taylor Swift and Harry Styles dating rumors remain unconfirmed, what is known is that the talented singers (and former couple) have been spending a lot of “cozy” time together once more.
In either case, congratulations to One Direction for not only capturing the hearts of millions of female fans around the world with “What Makes You Beautiful,” but continuing to hold their title as leading artists through “Take Me Home” on the Billboard music charts this week.
