One Direction 2012: 1D have earned a massive £10million in just seven months!
It’s been reported today that One Direction’s band members, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik, have yet more reason to think they’re the second coming/constantly laying golden-egged geese as it’s been reported that in the last seven months, the boys have earned £10million.
The People states that Simon Cowell, who must be happier than a pig in shiz with the boys, handed over the big chunk of wonga after the lads broke records in America by becoming the most successful UK band ever when they topped the Billboard charts with their debut album, Up All Night.
A source close to the 1D boys told the paper, “Simon Cowell wants them to know what they deserve.
“They have been a massive success, what they have achieved is phenomenal. Simon thinks they are the hardest working people in pop at the moment…
“They have made him an absolute fortune and he is incredibly proud.
“He always saw potential in them and now it’s paying off. Girls across the globe simply love them.”
1D’s debut single, What Makes You Beautiful, marked the beginning of their seemingly unstoppable train of success, given that it was only released last September and went straight to No 1 in the UK, won up a Brit Award in February, and has just sold more than a million copies in the US.
Not bad for an act that came third on X Factor eh?
