It definitely wasn't the One Direction star in the photo.

Taking some notes from Maroon 5 (who titled their recently released record, V) 1D decided to go ahead and just call their record by its number in their discography.

The guys teased the album announcement early Monday morning and followed it up with a video update spilling the news, but they also gave something a little extra, too. In an effort to apparently break the entire Internet, One Direction also decided to debut Four’s lead single, ‘Fireproof’ - and give it away completely for free, too.

One Direction isn't ending anytime soon, but here's why Harry Styles is destined to get even bigger after the boyband is over.
All good things must come to an end someday, which means that One Direction is eventually breaking up. Sorry, I know, it’s a sore subject for me, too. They’ve consistently put out great pop albums year after year, so it’s not like they should break up, but being in a boy band with a bunch of other guys sharing your spotlight puts a damper on your own personal success, too. Why stick around and split the profits when you can be a bigger star all on your own?! For some pop acts like Emblem3, it doesn’t make a difference who leaves, because nobody is really going to care about whatever solo thing they do. But groups like The Wanted? Nathan Sykes is bound to get big with anything he does now that The Wanted is done.
Harry Styles is bound to be One Direction's biggest success
With One Direction, all five of those guys are going to do big things too, but nobody will reach a star status as big as Harry Styles will, because let’s face it: Harry Styles is the lead of One Direction. Every pop group has one, whether people want to believe it or not. Nathan was the lead of The Wanted, James Bourne was the lead of Busted, and Normani Hamilton is totally the lead of Fifth Harmony. It’s not insulting the other members, but the leads just have something that their bandmates don’t. For Styles, he’s clearly the most popular, and arguably even has the best pipes.

Things got out of hand when 1D performed in Amsterdam last night.
One Direction’s Niall Horan reached out to fans on Twitter yesterday with a very important plea – stop throwing things onstage. The concept, which may be obvious to some, was clearly unfamiliar to attendees at 1D’s gig in Amsterdam on June 25, during which the 1D guys got pelted with a number of objects thrown by fans. Niall, who went through unspecified “major knee surgery” back in January, is still recovering.
Love hurts sometimes, especially if you're an international pop star.
He made sure to keep his tone as pleasant as a boy band singer has to be, but still told off the rowdy fans – in his own way.

Once again, One Direction have become front page news, but do people really find their recent drugs 'scandal' shocking?
Being caught with a joint is really nothing new in the world of pop, especially amongst those aggressively seeking a change of image that will subsequently add a semblance of ‘edge’ to their persona. For child stars especially, in attempts to free themselves from their enforced clean-cut youth and iconic childhood roles, to indulge in the smoking of marijuana is the go-to method of both distancing oneself from the past and declaring oneself as a fully independent adult.
The group have come under fire from the tabloids for Zayn and Louis' actions.
The celebrity world abounds with examples of such exploits. Remember the media storm over Justin Bieber’s incident with a “suspicious cigarette” or Miley Cyrus’ bong exploits, which have now evolved into her free and consistent utilization of marijuana symbolism? The celebrity media loves a scandal more than a Republican loves his right to bear firearms, but whilst the current One Direction drug ‘scandal’ has rather predictably been plastered all over the tabloid’s front pages, the majority of the public greets it with a collective shrug of the shoulders. They are, after all, adolescents- the prime age for indulging in experimentation with illicit substances and activities. Most adults will have indulged in similar instances of experimentation with an array substances at a similar age to these patchy-bearded pop stars. In terms of the pop world, this particular act has been seen many times before; so many times, in fact, that the whole ‘rebellion’ phase is part and parcel of the child actor discourse. Some take it just a little too far, and the ensuing descent into drugs has unfortunately claimed the lives of many of Hollywood’s exploited youngsters.

The One Direction star is seen puffing on a joint in Peru in a new video.
Louis Tomlinson of One Direction has come under fire for not only sharing a marijuana joint with fellow band member Zayn Malik but also using a shortened version of the N-word in the same leaked video. The new clip has sent shockwaves through One Direction's young fanbase as it presents a very different image to that of the usually squeaky clean singers.
Filmed in the car on the way to a recent concert in Peru, the clip shows Zayn and Louis joking around with members of their crew and passing around a joint which is referred to as "Mary Jane," a euphemism for weed. Feathers have also been ruffled by Louis' flippant attitude towards police that they pass and is heard referring to the law enforcers as the "po po."
Tomlinson is heard seeming to say "It's green only, n**" and blowing spoke whilst sharing the joint with the other passengers. A motorcycle police officer drives past and Louis says: "He's having a look. He's thinking 'I'm sure I can smell an illegal substance in there'. And he's hit the nail on the head."

Styles wasn't about to get shown up for his gullibility again. Harry Styles has become yet another victim-of-choice for a phone prankster after having made headlines with his embarrassingly gullible display at the hands of The 1975's Matt Healy and Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw. This time, Styles was chosen as the target for James Corden's hilarious Send-To-All prank on The Michael McIntyre Chat Show on Monday (14th April).
Harry Styles Was Poised For A Witty Retort When James Corden Prank Texted Him.
The send-to-all game involved James sending a cheeky text to everyone on his contacts list to see who responded. The 32 year-old entertainer wrote "Me and you, lapdancing. Are you in or out? Come on, let's do this." Having learned his lesson from last month's blunder, the One Direction singer wasn't taking any chances and instead replied "Great, but what is it with you and lapdancing? What happened the last time we did that wasn't pretty."

Could Harry Styles have outgrown One Direction?
Harry Styles is everywhere as of late but usually it's without his One Direction bandmates. Solo Styles has been stepping out without the other boys so much lately it's leading some people to wonder if the boy band member is about to go on his own 'direction' (we had to). As much as any break up talk may pain the group's many, many loyal fans, it has become rather apparent that Harry’s fame is somewhat eclipsing the other band members.
If you can only name one member of One Direction, it's probably Harry Styles
You really can’t escape Harry Styles as of late, his love life has made him a tabloid fixture (Kendall Jenner, Alison Mosshart, anyone?), he’s being FROW-ing at London Fashion Week and he’s even been writing some songs with Irish band Kodaline. Actually, it seems the only people who have managed to escape Harry are, well his One Direction bandmates. Despite the boys appearing together at last month’s Brit Awards, the group really haven't been showing much unity as of late, instead everything seems to have become the Harry Styles' show. Even at the Brits ceremony he took the spotlight by having to dash on to the stage late when the band collected their global success award.

Can Harry Styles act? Like, real acting. Somehow, we doubt it.
One is a celebrated actor, firmly entrenched in the culture of A-List stardom, while the other is the face of a band that has created more fan hysteria than any other since The Beatles were in their pomp. But why are Leonardo Dicaprio and Harry Styles hanging out so much?
These two are talking "work and woman" - feel sick yet?
"Leo's production company Appian Way has at least ten movie projects in the works with roles that could interest Harry,” a source explained to The Sun, clearing up one of life’s bigger questions.

Harry Styles is almost as famous for his tattoos as his music! With news of his latest heart tattoo, we take a look at some more of his ink.
When fresh faced Harry Styles first auditioned for The X Factor back in 2010 he was a blank slate, primed and ready to be moulded into the shining beacon of boy band perfection that he is today. But nearly four years on Harry’s slate is no longer blank. Not only is it covered with his string of number one hits which he achieved with his One Direction band members, but also in the most literal sense. At 20 years old, Harry is inked up to the eyeballs with tattoos and he’s recently added a new one to the collection.
Harry Styles has a huge amount of tattoos all over his body
Styles’ heart tattoo, the most recent to be added to his numerous designs, is an anatomically correct rendering of a human heart, aorta and all. Harry added the tattoo to his left bicep on a recent trip to Los Angeles, but what are some other tattoos that Harry has scattered around his very in-demand body?

Liam Payne has revealed the band rarely see each other as Harry Styles pens a tune with John Legend, but are One Direction splitting up?
One Direction may have walked away with their fourth BRIT award on Wednesday (this time the award acknowledged their Global Success) but that hasn’t stopped talk of One Direction splitting up. 1D was formed in 2010 after they finished third in the seventh series of The X Factor and have since gone on to achieve worldwide fame, as well as accumulating an extremely spirited and vocal bunch of fans along the way. Their three albums have broken all sorts of records and have topped global charts so the last thing that anybody expected was the shocking revelation that they may have come to the end of the line (note educated reference to ultimate 1990’s boy band lyric).
Last week 1D bagged the BRIT for Global Success
The rumours that One Direction are splitting up began when member Liam Payne revealed that the award ceremony last Wednesday marked the first time that band members had seen in each other for three months. Fans flew into a panic that their favourite bunch of cheeky chaps are apparently not in as close contact as they would like the believe, fueling rumours that if the boys haven’t been in touch perhaps they are on rocky ground.

Why does everybody love One Direction star Harry Styles so much?
Harry Styles can do no wrong. He may have been eliminated early from The X Factor when he auditioned as a solo artist back in 2010, but Simon and his cronies saw Harry’s potential and brought him back along with four other teenage boys to form a boyband. Can you guess who they went on to become?
Harry has gained a worldwide following
While they didn’t actually win The X Factor, One Direction have since topped a lot more charts and gained a lot more international success than the actual winner, Joe McElderry. But that’s not all they’ve gained. The 1D boys have formed a Bieleber-esque following of passionate and dedicated female fans around the globe, and none more so than Harry.

It's not just the female stars who are setting fashion trends.
Whilst all eyes are usually on the ladies during fashion week, there’s been more than a few men who’s style has made us turn heads in London and New York. From Bradley Cooper to Harry Styles here are the men leading the fashion pack at the moment.
Harry Styles, with a name like that he has to be a good dresser

New hair and old flames - the last night of Swift's UK tour was a big one.
Taylor Swift played at the O2 in London last night. She did a duet with Ellie Goulding. There were roughly 20 000 people in attendance, despite the continuing tube strike in the city (that’s the subway for you Americans). All of this pales in comparison to the news that A. Taylor got a haircut and B. Harry Styles may have been/was spotted, sort of, in a blurry instagram video/is rumored to have been backstage during Swift’s impromptu haircut party.

The British actor was voted as the 'Sexiest Man Alive' by Glamour magazine
Henry Cavill has topped the latest poll by Glamour magazine to determine the '100 Sexiest Men Alive.' The Man of Steel actor took the top spot from four-time winner of the accolade Robert Pattinson, who after four consecutive years of being declared the world's biggest hunk, fell down to number two this year.
Henry Cavill is apparently the sexiest man alive
The Twilight-star has long been a favourite for the magazine when compiling their yearly list of sexiest men, but this year the spandex-wearing DC superhero Cavill proved too dashing to ignore, as he leaped to the top spot. Cavill was chosen as the sexiest man alive by the magazine on the back of his successful turn as Superman in the blockbuster Man of Steel, with his chiselled abs and facial features probably going some way towards securing his spot at the top of the poll too.
