Give a young man money, popularity and put him in front of a camera, and there’s a good chance you’ll see his underwear. Many young pop stars have become known for showing off their waistbands including, of course, Justin Bieber. The British are never satisfied to come in second place when it comes to pop music, and we’ve recently seen a new group from across the pond stand up and drop trou. We’re talking, of course, about the One Direction underwear sightings. We’ll give you a little bit of background on the boy band, then we have a gallery of One Direction underwear and swimwear sightings for you to check out. Do the Brits come out on top of America’s little undies prince, Bieber? You’ll have to decide for yourself.
One Direction is an English-Irish group made up of Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. The five originally auditioned as solo artists for X-Factor, but they didn’t make it far. At the judges’ suggestion, however, the boys came together to form a group which then went on to win 3rd place. They were quickly signed by Simon Cowell.
The boys in One Direction all have those classic boy band features: good looks, pop songs and a huge fan base of young girls. What differentiates them from previous boy band successes is an apparent lack of dance routine. They focus less the stage act and more on the social media act, in that they tend to appeal to their fans more online than they do on the radio or in concerts. When the five boys get together and spend the day swimming off a yacht, they aren’t just on vacation. They’re performing. Check out the gallery of One Direction underwear and swimwear sightings below, and let us know how you rate their performance.
