Even being the most popular men on the planet won't get you perks sometimes. Liam Payne, 19, and Louis Tomlinson, 21 from One Direction were reportedly turned away from slot machines at a motorway service station in Lanarkshire, Scotland.

The band was on the way to a show in Glasgow and they stopped by the Abington Services M74 station in the morning for a short break. While the rest of their band-mates, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and Harry Styles were getting themselves some snacks, Liam and Louis, collectively known as LiLo, decided to try out some slot machines in the Games Area.

Avril Lavigne's New Single 'Here's To Never Growing Up' Is Catchy (Listen)

April 9th, 2013 2:49pm EDT
Pop princess Avril Lavigne has finally unveiled the lead single for her upcoming currently-untitled fifth studio album!

The single, titled “Here’s To Never Growing Up,” is about youth and having fun no matter how old you are. Just like the title suggests, the 28 year old Canadian singer vows to never change the way she is and “growing up”.

The upbeat anthemic song, with its pop-rock melody and catchy chorus that will definitely stick in its listeners’ heads, will probably do pretty well on the charts and I can foresee it becoming as big as, or maybe even bigger than Taylor Swift’s “We Are...

The band consists of four siblings – Ross Lynch (rhythm guitar, lead vocals), Riker Lynch (bass guitar, lead vocals), Rocky Lynch (lead guitar, lead vocals), Rydel Lynch (keyboards, tambourine, vocals) – and a family friend Ellington Ratliff ...

One Direction Behind Bars For 'Kiss You' Video

One Direction 'Kiss You' Video
Please don’t freak out when you read the title of this article.

Yes, British-Irish boyband One Direction were in the slammer for a while, before breaking out of prison with their bad-ass motorcycles and fleeing to Hawaii where they wore shirts that practically screamed, “I’M A TOURIST!”

Don’t worry people, One Direction’s legal record, as far as we know, is squeaky clean and Zarry isn't real (or is it...?). The boys were “jail-rocking” in their music video for their latest U.S single “Kiss You”. Just like most of their music videos (actually, all of them with the exception of “Little Th...
