One Direction's brotherly bond
One Direction are like brothers and feel grateful to have one another for support
One Direction are like "brothers".
The quintet - who were put together after auditioning for UK TV show 'The X Factor' as solo artists in 2010 - feel grateful to have the support of one another and don't have to deal with success on their own.
Louis Tomlinson said: "We're like brothers really. The best part about being in a band is just having each other to be honest.
"I personally don't think I could do it as a solo artist. It would be intense and hard to comprehend. It's good to be able to speak to people who know exactly where you are personally."
While Louis admits there are often "little scuffles" between the band - which also includes Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik - they never last long as they find it impossible to stay mad at one another for long.
Louis said: "I'll be mad but then I'll forget all about it. I'll come in and say, 'Heeeeeey' and then I'm like, 'Wait a minute, I'm annoyed with you'. That's how it always is."
Liam added to J-14 magazine: "Honestly, if we ever have a little row or a bust-up, I try to be mad but it ends up being impossible.
"Louis will come to my room and throw a joke at me and then here we are."
