One Direction star is flattered by comparisons
1D are currently building up an army of devoted fans in the States, which has led many to compare them to the legendary Liverpool lads.
‘That seems ridiculous to us, because they were such icons,’ Harry, 18, tells the Daily Mirror.
‘But we watched a film of their US trip and there were similarities.
‘We’re as close as them despite not being together long.’
Humble Zayn this week took time to reflect on the lads’ popularity and how far they’ve come since they tried out for The X Factor as solo artists in 2010.
‘This time 2 years ago I was auditioning for the @thexfactor in Manchester.. I can’t believe all this has happened since!,’ he wrote.
