B*Witched have revealed that they think the lads of One Direction need more support as they learn to cope with being in the spotlight.
The Irish girl group – who recently reformed to star on ITV2 show The Big Reunion – know what it’s like to live in the public eye and they revealed that the pressure of celebrity was overpowering when they were at the peak of their music career.
Twin sisters Edele and Keavy Lynch, Sinead O’Carroll and Lindsay Armaou have admitted that they wish they had more support when they were starting out and they insist that record label bosses should have counselling staff on hand for new stars.
“Going forward, I think bands need support from day one.”
“A record deal should come with counselling,” Keavy told Heat magazine.
When asked if they think One Direction will need assistance of this kind in the future, they added:
“Yes. They’re so young.”
“Boys hold a lot more in. You do hope that they get more personal time than we did. Every waking moment, someone wanted a piece of you in one way or another. It just got too much in the end.”
“I had a breakdown because of it. It was too much. I want to get youngsters like One Direction and go, ‘Please, just get some professional help. I promise you you’ll need it. Just start now,'” Keavy added.
Simon Cowell however thinks the boys are doing just fine and insisted that they are the most ‘grounded’ artists he has ever worked with in his entire career.
He doesn’t think the cult of celebrity has affected Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik need any more help than they are currently getting and he claimed that they are totally happy with their lives right now.
