Harry Styles’ SeaWorld comments have made a huge negative impact. Go Hazza.

Patron Saint of Sea Creatures Harry Styles has had quite a negative impact on SeaWorld by the sound of things, and that’s always good right?

When Harry took to the stage in San Diego a few weeks ago and bad mouthed the aquarium, nobody knew what effect it would have. According to a new report, Harry’s comments have had an even worse effect than the 2013 documentary Blackfish which tells the story of an orca who has killed three people since being kept in captivity at the attraction.

A bank analyst (they know what they’re talking about)said : “Perhaps we need to get a little more current on the latest boy bands; however, while this could negatively impact [SeaWorld’s] core demographic in San Diego, we don’t believe it’s too late for [SeaWorld] to rectify its brand impairment issues.”

It’s all explained in this chart below which we don’t really understand but we’re sure clever people like you will:

Julian Bunetta’s been chatting about One Direction’s new album again. Lucky us!

One Direction’s producer Julian Bunetta is sure enjoying speaking about the boys’ upcoming fifth album, isn’t he? This time he’s been talking to Entertainment Weekly about how much the boys are “experimenting” on #1D5.

“The albums I’ve produced [for One Direction] have been pretty diverse, but still had a cohesiveness somehow when they were all put together,” he said.  “I think there will be the same amount of diversity, but it seems to all be coming from the same perspective. We’re experimenting a little with different instrumentation.”

Different instrumentation, you say. How do you mean?

“Just strings and horns. We’re stretching out outside of the perimeters of what a traditional pop boy band would do. We’re just kind of having fun. No rules. That’s what it’s been. We just wanted to make an album that had influences of all the previous albums, but then, an evolved version.”

We can’t wait to hear whatever it is that you come up with Julian.

One Direction and their fans address world leaders in Action1D video.

We love One Direction a lot but we have fallen for them even more since the launch of their very own charity Action1D which asks us – the fans – what we want to see change in the world.

Now, we know we all want new shirtless Harry pics but believe it or not, there are more important things to worry about.

Millions of people across the world still don’t have access to clean water, there are still countries in this world that are struggling with poverty and members of the LGBT community are still fighting for rights, and Directioners have decided that they’ve had enough. They want to see the leaders of the world stand up and tackle these problems and have spoken through Action1D to grab their attention.

Make sure you watch the video by One Direction which features lots and lots of beautiful Directioners telling us what they want to do and make sure you share it to help make a difference.

Have a LOL with Marcus Butler, Alfie Deyes and Niomi smart on the most stupid challenge.

Alfie Deyes invited Marcus Butler and Niomi Smart round his house for a little game of Guess The YouTuber but this time it had a little twist, a very annoying little twist.

In Alfie’s latest pointless video, we have to guess if we’re looking at Niomi Smart or a blueberry tart, PewDiePie or a chicken thigh, or InTheFrow or an old womans’ toe, or something behind InTheFrow.

Cheeky Alfie.

Play along with Alfie, Marcus and Niomi by watching the video below.

Let us know how many you guessed right over on @maximumpop on Twitter.

We got in bed with Brad Simpson and the Janoskians and it was a lot of fun (not like that).

Every Sunday at 8pm, we jump in bed with our phones to watch the latest episode of ‘In Bed With Brad’ on The Vamps’ YouTube channel, and last night’s was probably our favourite yet as it featured five of Australia’s sexiest men – or women.

That’s right, the hunky Janoskians have got all dragged up once again to give Brad a visit in bed and give him the night of his life.

Once in bed, the Janoskians spoke about their ‘Untold and Untrue’ mockumentary, and showed interest in Brad’s life too – asking all about The Vamps’ upcoming second album which is coming really soon, eeeeeeeeek!

Have a look at the brand new episode below:
