One Direction: New Proof They’re More Popular Than Justin Bieber

Justin had previously set the 24-hour record for views on VEVO, but the guys of 1D came along and SMASHED it with their new single, ‘Live While We’re Young.’ Do YOU think they’re bigger than the Biebs?

Boy band One Direction has unseated Justin Bieber as the hottest act in music by crushing one of his biggest records. The fans have spoken and the One Direction revolution has begun!

The One Direction video “Live While We’re Young” has overtaken 18-year-old Justin’s “Boyfriend” as the video with the highest number of views in 24 hours. Justin previously set the pace in May with more than 8 million views, and 1D snuck past with 8.24 million views, the site revealed via Twitter.

It seems that One Direction is poised to take over the world from Justin — but we still love him, too!

One Direction member Liam Payne recently spoke with British GQ about flirting with fans after live shows.

“Honestly, because we’re taken from the venue to the hotel and whatever else you don’t really see much in between. We don’t really go out, but this tour will be different because we’re all 18 now…”

Do YOU think One Direction is a biggest sensation than Justin, HollywoodLifers?

Okay first off its about people who enjoy justin or One Direction based on THEM. No one is better than anybody. Niall and Louis can sing they have more solos on their latest album. Their voices are heavenly, you may not like One Direction but they are real artists, with FEELINGS. No fighting, they are all great artists, but do not diss One Direction. Show some respect please, Justin is an amazing artist we know. Thanks.

Listen sweety, I don’t know what you think this is but One Direction can become slowly popular. But remember you said S L O W L Y. Justin Bieber will always stand above them and no matter how hard they try, they will never be like Justin. Trust and believe.

SGJB First of all, you didn’t spell it right. Its Madison Square Garden. Second of all,they didn’t break any record because if they did, most people would know about it. Third, they are never and never will be higher than Justin. Because at the end of the day Justin doesn’t need reporters and what not telling him how extremely incredible he is. Hes got us, team Bieber, his grandparents, his friends, and most importantly his mother. One Direction needs people to tell them where they are in life because they never knew. They are blinded with everything everyone else says about them. Justin followed his dreams and he knows where he’s going. He’s unstoppable. And whatever you haters think isn’t important. Its what he thinks about himself. All he cares about is the people who love him. He doesn’t have time for you. So do yourself a favor and stop wasting your time. Because you’ll regret it. Trust me.

Oh and one more thing…One Direction is NOT better than Justin…Without Justin Bieber no one would ever be naming their fanbases…Beliebers started this all…..One Direction is just a cheap rip off…and Louis can’t even sing! I saw his audition and I couldn’t stop laughing! Nor can Niall..That’s the reason they don’t even get solo’s and if they do it’s either just a line or they have to talk through it…One Direction’s songs are so repetitive and have subliminal messages…They always sing about girls…Justin Bieber sings about believing, praying, love for his parents and to never say never..One direction sings about “getting some” and wanting that “one thing”
One Direction had to go on one of the worst talent shows in an attempt to get famous…But fame came looking for Justin.
One direction can’t even dance and their performances are horrible…They just jump around like idiots and they sing horrible too…Justin Bieber actually does a professional performance…Plus Justin Bieber can play more instruments than all of them can play together…In fact I bet only one of them knows how to play instruments and guess what? Bieber is his inspiration.
Bieber even co-writes his own lyrics..One direction has some random people like Ed Shereen do that stuff for them while all they know how to do is look pretty on the camera..Justin Bieber had to work hard to get where he is today..He had to go to Radio station to radio station to radio station in attempts to try and get people to like him, which they did..One Direction just had Simon Cowell buy their fame for them..They couldn’t even win the X-Factor.
People only like them for their looks…A lot of adults even like Bieber for his talent but they just don’t like his image…Their are tons of videos where he’s compared to legends like Michael Jackson…
And I don’t care if One Direction sold more than The Beatles…The social media helps out in that…One Direction is knows by the whole world through the internet today..The Beatles didn’t have that kind of stuff.
If you compare like that, Bieber sold waaaayy more than the Beatles.
I don’t care what you directioners say…Justin is light years ahead of One Direction.

I am not big fan of any one…I just like their song some people yelling your name and cheer you up because your popular some like you because how you looks
But I am not one of them..believe me or not every body is popular just the way they are
I would like to vote for one direction because they are strong and powerful
Sorry Justin I am not the only one in the world there more people who would like vote you…

They both are just fads. More of their fans want to get in their pants than their album. Some people don’t even bother to listen to music they like, just music they hear on the radio because its ‘catchy’.

Lets make this clear Sarah what ever your name is, until one direction sells out Madison Square Garden, until they were found on youtube, until they have natural vocal skills, until they have the whole world on they’re side, until they have parents singing “and just shake me till you wake me from this bad dream.”, until, just until they are know as the biggest human on the planet, you can consider them wayyy better than Justin. But beyond that, shut up.
And just so we make it clear, you’ll never talk again because they will never, ever be on Justin’s level. Never.
