Simon Cowell angered by One Direction’s partying

After the sudden rise in fame, British boy band One Direction has been in the media’s watchful eye. Although the five boys in the band, which was formed on the U.K. version of Simon Cowell’s The X Factor, seem like good, clean-cut boys, they’re actually quite the partiers. “Simon’s a control freak with One Direction,” an insider told Star. “He’s come down hard on them for spending too much time chasing girls, drinking booze and acting like clowns in night clubs.” The X Factor judge wasn’t too happy when he saw the boys drinking alcohol during a promotional trip. “Simon told them that to stay on top, they needed to put their noses to the grindstone and quit drinking,” said the source. “Simon’s a master image-maker, and he doesn’t want these guys to self-destruct. He wants to keep One Direction squeaky clean.” ~Graeme Mollison

    Well if you want everyone fooled into believing an image then why post this article. The cat in now out of the bag as they say. They are raving drunks.

    What else can you expect from boys who still haven’t hit puberty yet?

    If you haven’t hit puberty by the time you turn 20 you should probably see a doctor.

    Simon can giveth and Simon can taketh it away. These little lads better listen to the big cheese in charge with the money and backing. He knows a lot of influential people in the business. They are too new in the business to do something stupid and blow it. July 2013 Concert tickets for these guys have already been on sale and many dates sold out. These are more than a year away. I wonder if they will make it for 2013 concert dates!!!
