But let’s start at the beginning. First, Liam Payne got into a feud with Boy George after Liam allegedly snubbed BG’s niece at the BRITs. Following the incident, the ’80s popstar referred to the 1D guy as a “disrespectful w**ker of a minder” on Twitter. Soon after, another musician made a remark about the band: Jake Bugg. In a recent magazine interview, the lesser-known singer/songwriter said, “One Direction must know that they’re terrible,” to which Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan fired back.
As for Harry himself, a new biography is suggesting that his relationship with Taylor Swift was completely a hoax, created for publicity purposes. A few days later — phew, this is a lot to discuss — Harry was nailed in the crotch by a flying shoe during a Take Me Home world tour concert.
Now, after all of that, One Direction was voted ‘Worst Band’ at the 2013 NME Awards, and Harry Styles was crowned ‘Villain of the Year.’ At least the curly-haired singer took it in stride:
And thank you to @nme for my award tonight. Gotta take the rough with the smooth eh?
