One Direction: 'We're Like The Beatles'
One Direction have compared themselves to The Beatles following their wild stateside success. The boy band went to number 1 with their debut album in the US, and say the reaction from screaming fans are comparable to what the Fab Four would see in the 1960s. "We watched that film of The Beatles when they first touched down in America and we saw a real likeness with our personalities," said mop-haired Harry Styles (via NME). Bandmate Niall Horan said "They loved having a laugh like us." Or rather, a PR representative decided to say that Niall said it. Who knows. The feeling isn't mutual. Paul McCartney has dismissed comparisons and said it would be a kiss of death, but described them as a "terrific band". One Direction have made over £100 million ($160 million) since releasing their second album "Take Me Home" last November. Would you compare One Direction to the Beatles? Let us know in the comments.
