Is One Direction's New Song Too Similar to Def Leppard's Old One?

The biggest boy band in the world has a new song. And it's more than a little similar to one of the biggest hits of the '80s.

The title track of One Direction's new album, Midnight Memories, contains some interesting similarities to Def Leppard's 1987 mega-hit "Pour Some Sugar on Me."

Fans have already put together a ton of side-by-side comparisons, and while we're strictly armchair musicologists, we do have to say they sound more alike than different.

Paul Rudd Fangirls Out Over One Direction in New SNL Promo

Originally posted 12/05/2013 11:00AM

Just because Paul Rudd isn't a tween girl doesn't mean he can't be One Direction's No. 1 fan.

In a set of promos for this week's Saturday Night Live, third-time host Paul Rudd and cast member Vanessa Bayer (rightly!) freak out over musical guest One Direction. When Rudd realizes that the "band with the hot British guys" – Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson – will actually be in the studio with him, he completely loses his cool and politely muffles his screams with a pillow.

On Sunday, David Beckham and Harry Styles attended the world premiere of The Class of 92 at Odeon West End in London – and stopped to pose together on the red carpet.

With Beckham, 38, in a suit and tie, and Styles, 19, sporting a sweater, the pair appeared happy to be photographed side by side.

Kendall Jenner: Harry Styles & I Are 'Cool'

Originally posted 11/24/2013 08:25PM

Kendall Jenner and Harry Styles sparked relationship rumors this past week when they were spotted sharing a meal in West Hollywood. But a few days after their eyebrow-raising meal the duo are speaking out separately, and hinting that things are platonic – for now.

"We're friends. He's cool, yeah, he's cool," Kendall told E's Guiliana Rancic Sunday on the American Music Awards red carpet while standing beside younger sister Kylie.

"It's very hard to have friends of the opposite sex," Kylie chimed in a few moments later.

"You go out with one person, you're automatically dating them," Kendall, 18, added.

Lady Gaga vs. Miley Cyrus: Who Will Be the Most Shocking Performer at the AMAs?

Get your DVRs ready because you're going to want to hit rewind when performers including Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus take the stage at the 2013 American Music Awards on Sunday.

While Katy Perry is kicking off the night with her new single "Unconditionally," and Justin Timberlake, Ariana Grande, One Direction and Christina Aguilera will also be performing, we have a feeling that Gaga and Cyrus will steal the show with their over-the-top performances.

Meat dresses, seashell bras, burning pianos and fake blood, foam fingers, barely there bikinis, latex-clothed little people … we're wondering how they're going to top their previous awards show performances, but Gaga, who'll be singing "Do What U Want" with R. Kelly, gave a hint of what's to come.

Liam Payne Finds It 'Quite Strange' to Be Back on The X Factor

Originally posted 11/21/2013 02:15PM

It feels good to be back – and a little odd.

One Direction will perform on Thursday's X Factor, but band member Liam Payne says the experience obviously differs from when they headed to the top on the U.K. version of the hit competition series.

"It's quite strange being back on X Factor because you kind of know what the contestants go through and know what to expect next also," Payne told PEOPLE backstage after Wednesday night's show. "You know all the emotions they're going through."
