Ellen: One Direction
Ellen introduced international pop sensations One Direction by saying, “Well, if you watch our show, you know I like to discover new talent. And I think these next guests really might make it big.”
The boys from One Direction all came out, including Zayn, who was famously absent from One Direction’s live appearance on Today Show. They all sat down on a couch together, but they were very tightly packed in.
Ellen TV: One Direction Being Recognized
Ellen wondered if they were able to have a normal day and walk around. They said that they do walk around and try to lead normal lives. Ellen wondered if they had disguises. Harry said that the thing about disguises is that if someone catches you, it’s very embarrassing. It’s not worth it because when someone recognizes you, they want to know why you’re wearing a mustache.
Ellen: Zayn Missing The Today Show
Zayn missed Today Show because he had a stomach flu. He said he was feeling a lot better and he was very happy to be back with One Direction. Zyn said he was engaged, but he doesn’t have any firm plans for the wedding set up yet.
Ellen TV: One Direction Getting Dates
Ellen asked the rest of the boys if they had problems getting dates. They said they were all good. Ellen said that she could help them out if they needed her to. Liam said he felt like this was like psychiatry or something.
“Is that a word?” he said. “I don’t think that’s a word. I think I made that up.”
“No, psychiatry is a word,” Ellen reassured him.
“We left school at an early age,” Harry joked.
Ellen: Did Harry Styles Give Taylor Swift 1,989 Roses?
Ellen said she heard a rumor and wondered if it was true. Did Harry Styles give Taylor Swift 1,989 roses to celebrate the release of Taylor’s 1989 album doing well?
He said he heard the rumor, but he didn’t know anything about the roses. He said maybe someone else did it and he accidentally got the credit.
Ellen TV: One Direction Remembering Names
The members of One Direction have trouble remembering people’s names in the business, so Niall is in charge of remembering people’s names. He’ll walk up first, shake the hand, and say their name loudly so the rest of them will know who it is.
“This is Ellen, everyone,” Niall said, reminding the band who they were talking to. “It’s written a couple places around the studio.”
“That’s why I do it. That’s why I put my name there, for people to remember,” she joked.
Ellen: One Direction New Album
There were a lot of names flying around for One Direction’s new album, but Niall came up with Four. He said he thought it was a good idea because it was their fourth album. He said it was also his idea to underline the title of the album on the cover.
“You should be in marketing. You really should,” Ellen joked.
The album is not only their fourth album, but it’s also their fourth album to debut at number one.
Ellen TV: One Direction You & I Perfume
One Direction has a new fragrance out that’s for women called You & I.
“Do you all have the same taste in scents of a woman?” Ellen joked.
Harry said that was a great question. Liam explained that it’s a huge process in choosing a scent. In between trying different scents, you have to smell coffee beans to clear the palate and the scent. He said that the band often agreed on the different scents.
“We had the most meetings I think we’ve ever had about anything about this little bottle of stuff right there,” Liam said, pointing to the bottle.
Ellen still wanted to know about the process of developing the scent. “Did you smell some girl and went, ‘Oh, that’s the smell I’m going to go after,'” she said.
“You can get in trouble for that,” Liam joked.
Ellen: One Direction Competition
Ellen wondered if One Direction worried about other bands when they perform or make music. Liam said when they were younger, they did. But now, they just focus on themselves. Ellen asked them how long they’ve been together and they said four years. Suddenly, Harry realized it tied into the title of their album and held up the album, pointing to the title.
Ellen TV: One Direction Fighting
Ellen asked them if they fight on tour. Liam said that they have brotherly fights. Harry added that usually, they have their own space so they’re not all forced together on a tiny couch.
Ellen: One Direction American Tour
One Direction is going on tour next year over the summer in America. The tour is called On the Road Again, which Niall joked that he came up with, too.
Ellen TV: One Direction American Music Awards
One Direction is nominated for three awards at the American Music Awards. In honor of that, Ellen called down a girl named Corina, who was in the Riff Raff room. Niall immediately gave her a hug, then the whole band and Ellen gave her a group hug.
Corina was crying and completely shocked to be sitting there. Harry invited her to come to see them first at the AMAs and then gave her two tickets to their show. He also gave her some Altoids, Ellen’s holiday CD, their new fragrance, Ellen’s telephone, and the centerpiece from Ellen’s table. Corina just held it all and cried in excitement.
