Niall Horan Says the Obamas Always Visited One Direction on Tour: 'They Were Lovely'

Niall Horan strikes a pose on one of ShortList‘s 10th Anniversary Collectors’ Edition covers!

Here’s what the 24-year-old “Too Much To Ask” singer had to share with the mag:

On his relationship with the Obamas: “I’d always get a kiss and a hug from Michelle Obama. We [One Direction] would always play Washington on tour, and the Obamas would visit. They would come in these huge convoys with thick, bulletproof windows. I can’t imagine living like that, but they were lovely.”

On what he misses most about Ireland: “The thing I miss most about home is Irish ignorance. My mum said to me yesterday, ‘The world we work in is not necessarily normal, and that’s why people are obsessed by celebrities.’ Back home, a lot of people don’t get the references of people I’ve met, or places I’ve been. I miss the days when I didn’t know much more than what was in my hometown, and the innocence of that.”

Zayn Malik Says He & Harry Styles Were Never Close Friends

Zayn Malik is opening up about how he and Harry Styles were never as close as some fans may have thought they were.

The singers shot to fame together as members of One Direction, but Zayn left the group at the peak of the group’s success and the rest of the guys eventually went on to launch solo careers as well.

“We’re in touch,” Zayn told Us Weekly about him and the other 1D members. “Everything is on a civil level. It’s not the way it used to be, obviously, because we were spending 24 hours a day in the band and now we’re growing as individual men, but we still check in.”

When asked if he talks to Harry, he said, “To be honest, I never really spoke to Harry even when I was in the band. So I didn’t really expect that much of a relationship with him.”

Niall Horan Credits Louis Tomlinson For Keeping One Direction Together

Louis Tomlinson was a big part of One Direction.

However, the 25-year-old singer recently revealed that he felt forgettable during the early days of the group especially.

But his bandmate Niall Horan says otherwise.

“He knows that none of us ever thought that or think that. He’s an unbelievable guy, a great singer and someone that if, I’d say, we would have lost the plot along the way if we hadn’t had Louis,” Niall told Nova 100 radio show (via Daily Mail). “He was a very, very, very, extremely vital member of One Direction. He’s a great man.”

Pictured: Louis rocks a red sweatshirt while doing promo on Thursday (July 20) in London, England.
