Pink Floyd's Roger Waters: 'I've never listened to One Direction'

Musician Roger Waters, of Pink Floyd fame, has revealed that he has never heard any music from boyband One Direction and isn't interested in checking out their songs. 

He made the comments while promoting his new concert film 'Roger Waters The Wall' and confessed that while he isn't bothered by the heartthrobs, he understands that pop music definitely has a place in the contemporary music world:

"I've never heard One Direction and I never will. I don't listen to pop music, by and large, I'm not interested in it. I've certainly never been interested in Take That or boybands, whoever they are. That's not to say it doesn't have its place and other people shouldn't be interested in it – they always have been..."

"There have always been artists who are controlled by some svengali character in the background. As the years go on... there will be more and more of The Voice and Simon Cowell progeny and boybands like One Direction."

1D, meanwhile, have just reached another impressive career milestone as their album 'Four' has now been certified double Platinum by the British Phonographic Industry.
