One Direction did a photo shoot. With puppies. And we fainted.
In the new issue of Wonderland magazine, aptly titled their “Obsession” issue, 1D pose with some of the cutest little furballs we’ve ever seen in charmingly cheesy shots that may remind you of your own school’s picture day. And uh, there’s video. There’s video of One Direction and puppies. (It’s hard to type when you’re busy shaking and crying.)
It’s short, but it’s so sweet:
Some of the shots are just so sweet that they give us a toothache, while others–we’re looking at you, Niall Horan!–are so deliberately goofy that they’re hilarious. And can we talk about the sweaters for a second? Because Harry Styles is wearing pale pink, and we still want to go swimming in his dimples.
There was also an interview, but we were preoccupied with puppies, so it took us a while to get to that part–but it was well worth it, because Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson revealed that Directioners may not know One Direction as well as they think that they do. Interesting!
“I think there’s a lot of things that the fans don’t know about us. I think our relationship doesn’t really play out as much as people think,” Liam said. “People still ask whether we really get on or not, and we genuinely do,” he insisted. (You hear that? No backstage feuding here!) “A lot of people don’t believe that, they think it’s some fake thing where we have to get on because of the position we’re in. I think for us, the main thing is that we’ve just kind of been ourselves, that’s what people like. I think a lot of people get into our situation and you hear they’ve changed, but we’ve just stayed ourselves.”
Louis agreed, telling the mag, “In the past, with previous boy bands, I think they felt like they had to meet a stereotype. We’re just ourselves–stupid, immature and quirky.”
And cute. Really, really freakin’ cute. We can’t. We just can’t. Just look at Harry’s puppy winking like he knows who he’s dealing with. Your move, koalas, kittens, and pandas.
Who’s your favorite member of One Direction? Who do you think is the cutest? If you could name a puppy after any member of One Direction, who would it be? Have you ever been more jealous of a canine in your life? Tell us in the comments!
