Who has more fans – Justin Bieber or One Direction? The British boyband One Direction, consisting of Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and Liam Payne, admit that they’re friends with Canadian music sensation Justin Bieber, but who really has the most fans?
When asked by Meredith Vieira on the Today Show [via Yahoo] whether they feel competitive with Bieber, Niall Horan said, “No, we’re friends with him.” 1D was then asked whether Bieber got more chicks or they got more chicks, and Harry cheekily said, “Well, there are five of us”, implying that 1D does indeed have the edge when it comes to the ladies.
Fans packed the surrounding areas during the interview, and One Direction’s performances have been playing to sold out venues across the country. We can only imagine the pandemonium that will ensue once their tour starts in earnest.
On the other hand, Bieber is dealing with his own difficulties – after breaking up with longtime girlfriend Selena Gomez, he has been rumored to be devastated and desperate to get her back, but she is reported to not be interested.
Meanwhile, Al Roker announced that 1D’s performance for the Today Show drew almost 15,000 fans, which according to Roker, is a record breaking number.
