2013 has definitely been the year that Taylor Swift crossed over from country star to international pop princess. With three best-selling albums, Taylor Swift, Fearless and Speak Now, already under her belt, her fourth, Red, was released at the end of 2012 ready to see in the new year.
It was recently announced that One Direction had the top selling album of 2013. Beating pop royalty like Beyonce and rap superstar Eminem, the British boys have taken their success to the next level by finally cracking America. Like the Beatles did back in the 60's, gaining popularity over the pond is the only way to crystalise a musician's legacy. So, what is it that makes One Direction so popular? Whether you are merely the parent of an adoring fan, or perhaps someone who is unable to remove a catchy lyric from your head on the way to work, it is almost impossible to deny the success of their whirlwind career.
Fresh off the heels of some of One Direction’s boys being caught smoking weed on camera, there’s still hope for at least one role model left in the band. Harry Styles has given up sex in favour of religion!
