Harry Styles gets thigh tattoo: The internet reacts. Top 5 suggestions as to what it could be.

We’re only 18 days into the month and already we’ve had HQ pictures of 3/4 in suits, Zayn shaved his head and got a piercing, Louis has his own record label and Niall’s bought a bloody blender.



The new inking, situated on Hazza’s left thigh, is quite hard to make out but nothing has stopped the Directioners from coming up with their own suggestions as to what the flip it could be.

Directioners have been predicting what the fifth album could sound like. But what do MP! Readers want?

Those cheeky Directioners have taken to Photoshop to mock up artwork and tracklists for One Direction’s first album sans Malik, and the results aren’t too kind towards Zayn and his bffl Naughty Boy.


With titles such as ‘Normal 22′, ‘Soundcloud, ‘Steal My Zayn’, and ‘Greasy Burrito Boy’ all making appearances on the fake track listings, it seems like 1D fans aren’t forgiving the duo anytime soon.

But with all this shade being thrown Zayn and Naughty Boy’s way, we were wondering what YOU would like to see appear on One Direction’s fifth studio album? Would you call it ‘Five’, ‘Actually Four This Time’, ‘Naughty Naughty Boy’ or something different?

Send your fake title, tracklisting, and – for the more creative readers – artworks to us on Twitter with #FivePredictionMaxPop and the best will featured on this very site next week.

Zayn wins at The Asian Awards and pays tribute to his four best friends. We are crying.

What a night! With Zayn’s first appearance post 1D, his hair change and now he’s won an award, we don’t think we can cope with much more. So don’t get us started on his speech.

Zayn and his award

After going on stage to accept the award, Zayn says:

“I’d like to thank my mum and dad for making me Asian, and I’d also like to take this moment to thank four of the best guys I’ve ever met, everything I’ve done with them will stay with me for the rest of my life”

We’re not crying. We’re not crying. We are lying, yes we are crying. THE EMOTIONS ARE HIGH.


Someone pass us the tissues, we’re feeling really emotional and proud but sad but happy… help us.

You can see Zayn accepting his award (if you can handle it) here:

Are you feeling okay? We aren’t. Let’s talk on Twitter. @maximumpop come chat with us about this emotional day.

Louis Tomlinson starts his own record label & signs X Factor fitty Jack Walton

SHUT THE FRONT DOOR. Louis Tomlinson has his own record label! Holy crap!

An exclusive from The Sun has given us the details about how Louis has partnered with Sony to create his own record label which will be launched later this year.

He’s already signed a girl band and X Factor’s Jack Walton to the label. WE ARE SO EXCITED.

Speaking to Dan Wootton, Louis says  “This is something I’ve wanted to do for some time.”

Louis started the setup of ’78 Productions Limited’ back in January and searched for fresh talent as a judge for Sony’s ‘Be in the Band’ competition in March. Who’s a sneaky sod, then?! Continue reading Louis Tomlinson starts his own record label & signs X Factor fitty Jack Walton

Gabby & Hobbie Stuart just released a breathtaking version of Ellie G’s ‘Love Me Like You Do’.

We’ve been waiting what seems like an eternity for Gabby to release a video of her singing. AND GUESS WHAT YOU GORGEOUS TURNIPS?! Not only is today the day that Zayn Malik finally surfaced from hibernation, it’s also the day this gorgeous cover was uploaded.

Teaming up with her Brighton BFF Hobbie Stuart, Gabs sounds absolutely stunning in this cover of Ellie Goulding’s ‘Love Me Like You Do’. We Gabs, we bloody love it. When can we hear more?

This One Direction parody really focusses on all that #ZaynPain we still have

Parodies can be darn funny (and slightly insulting) but this one we’re about to show you now only hits us right in the feels.

It pretty much sums up how we all felt after Zayn’s departure from 1D and it’s possible we’ll never recover (although we’re not ripping out Zayn from posters, God no)

Warning: This prom proposal will make you cringe big time

It’s prom season, which means stressing over THE dress, shoes, hair and fancy cars. Oh and one other little thing…a date.

Now, we can totally understand how asking someone to prom could be a little daunting, but sometimes coming out with it and asking straight up is the best option. It seems not all guys are about that life though, watch this guy who opted for something a little more…cringe.

Arrgghhh, we’re not sure how we’d even deal with that situation. Even though it was cringe-central, the ending was pretty cute in fairness. Would it be too much to say boy did good? Maybe. What would you guys do in this situation? Cringe? Laugh? Cry? Hit us up on Twitter @maximumpop and let us know.

Watch: Marcus Butler and Caspar Lee play innuendo bingo – it might be the best thing we’ve ever seen

Innuendo bingo can be pretty darn hilarious to watch at the best of times, but add a little bit of Marcus Butler and Caspar Lee into the mix, and you’ve got yourself a piece of video gold.

Witness the wetness right here…oh and can we have a moment of appreciation for Marcus’ white t-shirt choice. We most definitely approve.

Was that, or was that not beyond amazing? If you fancy seeing more YouTuber-related wetness, then check out Caspar Lee’s genius shower pranks on Joe Sugg right here. It won’t disappoint. Promise.
