    what is it with them.... i really cannot imagine myself or anyone doing something like this if one of busted/mcfly started dating some girl back in the day..! or going further back to proper boybands... boyzone, five, backstreet boys etc.


    is it just kids these days or what?!?!?

    It's all this 'Harry tweeted me on 17/3' that concerns me, all this devoting their lives to the band; it gets to the point where it's quite scary doesn't it. Hopefully most of them will look back at how they were acting and just wonder why...

    Funny how their fans have a go at 'haters' of the band, and yet go and abuse one of the band mates girlfriends..

    It's this idea that they see One Direction as perfect and holy, and they want nothing to taint that. They also believe they have a shot at going out with One Direction. Their obsession with the band is ridiculous - there's a fine line between being fans of the band and harassing others and even hurting yourselves or others because of the band. I like my fair share of artists, but I wouldn't go as far as they do.

    Justin Beiber's fanbase is much the same, no? Also the major hype over old boybands like E17 and Backstreet Boys and all the rest would be identical, people just have access to twitter and there's much more information online. No need to resort to christmas annuals and interviews in J17 or sugar!

    Crazy fans scare me. Never follow a Belieber or 1Der(?) on twitter or your feed will be fill with crazy as they all retweet one anothers devotions. I just dont understand it, epecially the ones that send the hate mail to bands or Beibers Girlfriends.
    I have nothing against their music they are what they are a cheap and cheerful cheesy boyband and a cutesy teeniebopper idol. But they need to learn they control a scarey army how will died for them.

    Yeah, I don't understand why some fans of One Direction and also some other artists (Justin Bieber being another good example) act so pathetic and mental like this? Surely they must realise that realistically, the chances of any of them even getting to meet their idols is pretty low, let alone their chances of ever dating/kissing/shagging/marrying them :laugh:

    I mean hey, I've had this decade-long crush on Justin Timberlake, but it's never bothered me in the slightest when he dates someone. Why on earth should it? OK, maybe I'd jokingly be all like "Nooo" for a second and then forget about it, but things like abuse and death threats are just too far though . Some people really need to assess themselves and get a life.

    Solution. We just need to get One Direction and Justin Bieber to tell their ultra-fans to off themselves. We will shed the dumbest most shallow section of society, plus 1D and Bieber lose their fanbases so they will quickly fade away. Win, win.

    I think you can a Justin Beiber fan but the term Belieber ( believe in beiber) is very much a description of a crazy. No offence intended.

    And Clip - Thats a lovely story ewwwwww..


    And the other bit I dont get is why must they make theyre facebook/tumblr/twitter photo be of Justin.Beiber? Thats not you. Put an I heart Bieber shirt on a take a self pic rather than a thousand girls having his album cover as there fb pic etc

    i think 12 yrl old girls are there fanbases and they are extremely vulnerable to hot guys and good looks , thats why they get carried away and addicted to such bands ! just last night i saw a question on Yahoo answers :- a girl wrote "im addicted to zayn and i dream about marrying him " !!!!. i mean seriously ???!?!?! this is just insane and it probably destroys their own social lives because they keep on thinking of finding someone as perfect as celebs !!

    Of course the psychology was always the same, but Twitter provides two things we didn't have before:
    - perceived closer social connection with the band
    - an enabling network of rabid fans which may be drawn from all over the world
