We never thought we'd ask this, but: Justin Bieber who?!?

One Direction put that 19-year old sensation in its rearview mirror last Thursday, debuting the official music video for "Live While We're Young" and shattering Bieber's record for most VEVO views in a 24-hour period.

This one racked up an incredible 8.34 million views after just one day on the Web.

One Direction's music video for "Live While We're Young," the first single off their highly anticipated new album, was released online today, nearly crashing YouTube.

The video, which was not expected to be live until next week, features Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, and Zayn Malik on a summer holiday.

An epic holiday. It's the ultimate beach party for the fab five, whose brand of energetic pop-rock is in full effect. Shirtless Niall Horan. Inflatable banana. Enough said.

It's all about having fun, Directioners. One deep lyrical sampling: ''Lets go crazy, crazy, crazy until we see the sun. I know we only met, but let's pretend it's love.''

Let's, you guys. Let's.

Louis Tomlinson is sick and tired of the rumors.

With various blogs and Twitter users fueling talk of a homosexual relationship between this One Direction member and friend Harry Styles - dubbing the supposed couple "Larry Stylinson" - Tomlinson has finally let the chatter get to him.

He went off last night.

Tweeted Tomlinson in response to a follower who brought up the topic:

Larry is the biggest load of bullshit I’ve ever heard. I’m happy, why can’t you accept that.

This isn't the first time a One Direction artist has taken issue with Twitter. Zayn Malik actually signed off from the social networking service after dealing with one too many haters out there.

But he returned within 24 hours.

Ladies and gentlemen, prepare yourselves for Loran! Errr... Diall? Perhaps Nemi?

With their nickname To Be Determined, Niall Horan and Demi Lovato were spotted on a date Thursday night, as multiple witnesses confirm to Us Weekly that the One Direction cutie and the new X Factor judge dined at Pink Taco following the MTV Video Music Awards.

This interlude comes about 10 weeks after Horan admitted he thought Lovato was a "cool" gal and that there had been "contact" between the music superstars.

We can read between those lines!

Aside from their dinner together, the evening was a success for both Niall and Demi. One Direction took home a trio of trophies (Most Share-Worthy Video, Best New Artist and Best Pop Video), while Lovato was honored with Best Video with a Message.

One Direction also performed at the event.

Contrary to previous rumors/prayers of every 14-year old girl across the country, Justin Bieber and One Direction will not be collaborating on any music in the near future.

"We've never actually been asked by him," Liam Payne told E! News, while Louis Tomlinson added he doesn't even know if the two sides would mesh: "I think we both do quite different things. We make different music. He's doing his thing, and we're doing our thing.

However, Bieber and a couple One Direction members are cooking up something together: an actual meal of food!

Niall Horan and Zayn Malik stopped by Bieber's house last night, following the MTV Video Music Awards, and shared the experience with a few million Twitter followers.

"At my house cooking some noodles with @NiallOfficial," Bieber Tweeted along with these photos, adding: "Guys night in full effect."

Earlier in the evening, Horan, Malik and their fellow group members took home three VMA trophies and also performed the smash "One Thing." All in all, in other words: not a shabby few hours.

One Direction sang about that "One Thing" at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, but the young British studs had three things to celebrate when the night was over.

Three trophies, that is, as the group took home Most Share-Worthy Video and Best Pop Video for “What Makes You Beautiful," along with Best New Artist overall. Not a bad haul, huh?

What's all the excitement about?

Check out One Direction below and see what makes the gals scream:

The Royal family may be unhappy with Prince Harry these days, but the hottest boy band on the planet has no problem with the antics of their fellow handsome Brit.

Asked by E! News about the naked Prince Harry photos that cropped up a couple weeks ago, members of One Direction stood firmly erect in the young man's corner.

Louis Tomlinson said the incident actually makes Harry a "strong figure because he's real," while Niall Horan kept his viewpoint simple: "He's a 20-odd year-old guy doing what he wants."

Of course, Liam Payne recognized that Prince Harry is not just any 20-odd year-old guy.

"A lot of people would have gone away on holiday and whatever, it doesn't matter for them. For him, it matters," said Payne.

The hullabaloo over the nude pictures appears to be close to blowing over, although Carrie Reichert recently spoke out and extended the story when she spilled details from the night in question.

Still, at the end of the day, Harry is young, handsome and single. Until Pippa Milddleton comes to her senses and dates the guy, can you blame him for having a bit of fun?

When it comes to Twitter, Zayn Malik is headed in one direction: out the door.

The British boy band member has deactivated his social networking account, telling followers immediately prior to doing so on Tuesday:

“The reason i don’t tweet as much as i use to, is because I’m sick of all the useless opinions and hate that I get daily. goodbye twitter :) .”

To those fans who can't muster a smiley face of their own upon hearing this news, take heart:

Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Charlie Sheen, Alec Baldwin and Amanda Bynes have all quit Twitter in the past.

Every single one returned.

UPDATE: That didn't take long. He's already back, writing: Sorry, I was getting some abuse on twitter but I dont want to let my fans down. So I am back!! :)
