One Direction on going unnoticed during shopping trips and cheerleader girlfriends
UK boyband One Direction recently stopped by America's popular 'Today' show and opened up about the pressures of being famous and how they deal with the ever-increasing lack of privacy.
Over the weekend, members Liam Payne and Niall Horan were shocked after getting mobbed while walking around New York City during a day off and the group talked to Jenna Bush Hager about what it's like to live in the spotlight.
Heartthrob Louis Tomlinson explained that despite their very public image, it is possible to walk around unnoticed:
"But the thing is, it's easy going to the shops really. Everyone has this, like, idea that you can't go to the shops, but the only time when ever it gets crazy is when everyone knows we're in a certain place. If we just walk into the shop you might have two or three people stop you for a photo, but..."
Harry Styles added: "The only bit that you kind of wish you got to do more of is see your family. So I don't think there's ever a point where the cons outweigh the pros."
When asked if they would be attending the 2012 London Olympics later this summer, an excited Liam Payne revealed that his girlfriend is actually taking part:
"My girlfriend's cheerleading in the Olympics. Genuinely, for the volleyball!"
Watch the interview, in which the lads also talk about their favourite countries to both perform in and visit, in full below:
