Jimmy Kimmel Takes #CutestSelfieEver With One Direction: VIDEO

Kimmel

The boys of One Direction stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live the other night to help Kimmel take the "Cutest Selfie Ever." Kimmel enlisted the help of the teenage heartthrobs, but the host felt the boys alone weren't cute enough; cue the reinforcements of puppies, teacup kittens, tiny ballerinas, stuffed animals, a unicorn and even Guillermo himself to capture the most sickeningly sweet selfie ever. 

Even Louis Tomlinson appeared in good spirits on the show considering he angrily tweeted a UK reporter last week for insinuating the singer is gay in a tweet the reporter posted. However, it was Niall Horan who decided to go diva this week, donning a tiara from Kimmel's prop box;

One Direction's Harry Styles on Dating Men: 'Don't Knock It 'Til You Try It'

Styles

One Direction's Harry Styles is adding even more fuel to the bisexual rumor fire in a new interview with The Sun

Joined by fellow One Direction-er Niall Horan, the two were asked about which celebrities Horan should hook up with next. The singers rattled off big names like Rihanna and Ariana Grande before the interviewer suggested that perhaps Horan's next choice should be a man. The Daily Mirror writes that Styles then reportedly touched Horan on the knee and said "Hey, don't knock it 'til you try it."

Earlier this month, Styles made headlines for saying in an interview that gender is "not that important" when it comes to his significant other. He also donned a Michael Sam No.96 Rams jersey on-stage at One Direction's St. Louis concert back in August.

UK Reporter Responds to One Direction's Louis Tomlinson After 'Gay' Apple T-Shirt Squabble

Tomlinson

Jenn Selby, a reporter for the UK newspaper The Independent, has responded to One Direction's Louis Tomlinson after he lashed out at her over a recent story that was misinterpreted as implying he's gay. 

Earlier this week, Tomlinson was spotted wearing a t-shirt bearing Apple's "rainbow logo" and Selby wrote:

Days after Harry Styles’ comment about gender and sexuality became a viral talking point, his bandmate Louis Tomlinson seemingly showed his support for the recently out Apple CEO Tim Cook.

Tomlinson proceeded to fire off a series of angry tweets disputing the story and clarifying that he's "in fact straight."

Here's Selby's response, in part:

Sam Smith, Coldplay, Adele, Others to Re-Record 'Do They Know It's Christmas' for Ebola Relief

Christmas

Bob Geldof is getting the Band Aid back together again. In a press conference on Monday, Geldof and Midge Ure announced that the iconic (and some say annoying) charity hit "Do They Know It's Christmas" will be re-recorded to raise funds to fight ebola, with new artists like Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, One Direction, and Adele joining megabands like Coldplay and U2 (who were on the original 1984 recording). The lyrics of the song will be slightly adjusted to reflect the situation of ebola rather than famine, which was their original cause celeb. 

Screen Shot 2014-11-11 at 5.35.03 PMGeldof said that the new group, named Band Aid 30 in honor of the 30th anniversary of the first recording, was inspired not by nostalgia but by the United Nations. "Three weeks ago I got a call from the UN saying they required a 20% increase across the board [in funding to fight ebola]," said Geldof, known as much for being a humanitarian and a musician. "They are very concerned about the situation in west Africa.”

Geldof will gather all the artists in a London studio this weekend with an online release next Monday. This marks the fourth time the song will be recorded to help a humanitarian cause, the last effort being in 2004 with a hip hop-oriented cover to raise money for war torn Darfur. Geldof also mentioned that he had contacted Quincy Jones to see about enlisting American artists to help. Can a "We Are The World"-redux be next?
